Stampin’ Up! We Must Celebrate

I cannot say enough how much I love the Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I’m not usually one to color a lot, but they make coloring and shadowing so easy.

Although the Pink Pirouette markers (as used in today’s card) are retiring, 11 new colors are being added to the Stampin’ Blends collection.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then layered over it a pattern from the Petal Passion DSP and added a 1-1/2″ Pink Pirouette banner over that.

Next I stamped the animals from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored in the images using Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, and Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on a small panel of Pink Pirouette cardstock and added a few Pink Pirouette Enamel stars in the bottom corner.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday Challenge.

That is to the Retiring List – it’s now live and there’s A LOT to see!

NOTE:  You will see ALL ink pads retiring.

WHY?  Stampin’ Up! has reformatted their ink pads.  The new ink pads are easier to open and come with a new formula that prevents bubbling on the stamps!!!

Stampin’ Up! We Must Celebrate Baby Card

Punches…

I feel like sometimes they don’t get the love they deserve.  They may not be able to cut out the intricate dies like the Big Shot can, but a punch is so simple to use and can in an instant cut something out.

I pulled out not 1, not 2, but 3 punches for today’s card.

Mr. Bunny makes this card so cute and perfect for a new baby.  He comes from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set.

This card was my featured Facebook Live Tutorial this past Wednesday night.  Swing by and join me at 7:30 pm EST as I give a live tutorial on a different card each week.  If you watch live and leave a comment, I’ll draw a name at the end for someone to receive that night’s card!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s theme challenge at Global Design Project.

Stampin’ Up! NEW We Must Celebrate Card

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

You might look at today’s card and wonder whether it’s really me here…
I assure you that it’s still me.

You see I normally do very little coloring/shading in.  And this is my third card in one week that has coloring!  I’m having so much fun.

I couldn’t help myself and had to get this new We Must Celebrate Stamp SetThese little creatures are so adorable and can be used together, as well as stamped separately.  Today I decided to use the watercolor pencils to color them in, but I can’t wait to try the new Stampin’ Blends!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then cut a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and adhered it to the card front.   I adhered a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock to the top of the card front.  I then stamped the little creatures from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set in Archival Black ink on a piece of Watercolor Paper.

I used the Watercolor Pencils to color the creatures in.  I also used the Old Olive pencil to add some shading underneath the animals and very light Bermuda Bay above them for a sky.  I then used an Aqua Painter to evenly distribute the color.  I matted this on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the sentiment in Archival Black Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
