Holiday Thanks…

There will be many thanks posted for kindnesses shown during the holiday.  Creating cards for that purpose has been on my mind and creative table lately.

If you also need this type of card, here’s an idea for you…

Wowzers!  Those colors are bright and cheery.

I love seam binding ribbon!

All kinds of texture going on in the background.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecard, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie
  • Stamps:  Charming Cafe’ (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Calypso Coral Seam Binding (retired), Linen Thread, Aqua Painter

Digits

  • The watercolor paper is 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″.  For a video showing this background being made, go to my Rambling Rose Studio Facebook page, click on video posted 12-3-17.  Sometimes just seeing t done helps.  Spritz the watercolor paper until it’s wet.  You can brush over it with an Aqua Painter or any small brush.  Add reinker color (add drops to an acrylic block or the ink pad lid and pick up with brush) with a brush and let the colors “bloom”.  Let dry.
  • Emboss the lower half of watercolor paper with Petal Pair EF.
  • Add a piece of ribbon around then fasten with SNAIL in the back.
  • Make several loops with ribbon then tie in center with Linen Thread.  Attach over ribbon band with glue dots.
  • Add watercolor piece to notecard front with Multipurpose Glue and weight down until dried.

Send your cheer-me-up note to someone on your list and make their day!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Come get inky with me and be HaPpY!

Reflective Landscape…

You may have flipped right past this little stamp set on page 48 in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  This set was inspired by the Million Sales Achiever, Connie Heisey and it is a gem!

Using the new product, Brusho made this landscape appear as if it had been hand painted.

Yesterday on the Rambling Rose Studio Facebook page I demonstrated this landscape in a “live” video that is still available to see.

Only three of the Brusho color crystals were used for this landscape.

This would be an excellent sympathy card or masculine birthday card too.  Later this week there will be another landscape totally different from this one to show you why I think this little set is such a gem.  I’m planning my February “Inky Fingers” class around this set…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Tranquil Tide Cardstock, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Waterfront
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Small Round Paint Brush, Brusho Color Crystals

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score, fold and burnish at 4-1/4″.
  • The Tranquil Tide layer is 5-1/2″ x 4″ attached to card front with SNAIL.
  • The watercolor paper is 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″.  The elements are added in layers then left to dry before adding layers over them.  So the sun was stamped with water and Yellow Color Crystals were dropped into the water.  Next was the mountain in the background added the same way using the Green Color Crystals.  Next would be the Prussian Blue mountain then the green ground (mix some yellow crystals with blue on an acrylic block with water to create this green).  Use the same mixed green for the trees.
  • Add some blue crystal to a block with water to dilute to a lighter blue and color in the sky and water areas.  Once dry add a watery sun by diluting the yellow on the stamp in the water.  Use paint brush to add reflection of sun.  Stamp trees on a piece of window sheet or plastic wrapper to stamp the reflection of the trees.  It should be much lighter than the original trees.
  • Add sentiment in Archival Basic Black.
  • Add this layer to card front with multipurpose glue and weight down until dry.

If all this sounds too much, go to the Rambling Rose Studio Facebook page and take a look at the “live” video.  Sometimes just seeing something done makes it so much easier to visualize.

I am so close to having everything ready for Christmas…good thing since we are leaving Friday to celebrate with our son and his family which includes “the littles”.

Hope you are seeing light at the end of your tunnel too.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Panda Rockettes…

What could be cuter than a line up of dancing pandas?  These little guys are ready to high kick just like the Rockettes…

How cute are they?  Once again the magic of masking is in force here.

And those background trees?  Where did they come from?

And a peek inside.

And the best thing about this set?  It’s FREE!

Yep, this set is in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog that goes “live” January 3rd.  Not to be missed!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this one (I will be “live” on the Rambling Rose Studio facebook page Sunday afternoon demonstrating this week’s two panda cards.  Be sure to “like” the page so you will be notified):

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock
  • Ink:  Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Party Pandas and Season of Whimsy (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Masking Paper or Post It Note, Smoky Slate Market, Card Front Builder Framelits, Fun Foam

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score, fold and burnish at 4-1/4″.
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached to card front with SNAIL.
  • The top Thick Whisper White layer is 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Cut two masking pandas from Masking Paper or Post It Note.  Stamp first panda in Archival Basic Black in center of layer.  Mask this panda then stamp the second panda to the right or left of the center panda and mask this one too.
  • Make your own tree stamp from the tree framelit in Card Front Builder Framelit Dies by cutting two of each tree from Fun Foam.  Glue the layers together with multipurpose glue.  Add a dab of multipurpose glue to one side of the fun foam to make it tacky so it will stick to Acrylic Block.

  • How fun is that?  Now ink the trees in Lemon Lime Twist then add Tranquil Tide to one side of the trees.  Spritz with a little water and stamp over the two masked pandas.
  • Remove the mask that isn’t in the center and cover the third panda.  Repeat the above instructions to add trees behind all the pandas.
  • Remove all masks.  Save them with your stamp set to reuse.
  • Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black at top right.
  • Add shadows under each panda with Smoky Slate Market.
  • Inside there is a layer of Lemon Lime Twist 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ with a Thick Whisper White layer 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ on top.  Stamped with two of the trees from the card front inked and spritzed in the same way.
  • These trees could also be added to the envelope to coordinate!

Hope to see you Sunday Afternoon…

Brusho Peace…

The recipe of water, Brusho Colour Crystals and watercolor paper is magic!  You can work like a free spirit with wild abandon or much more structured with a brush…either way the results are really magically…

Today’s post is a little more structured with a maintained border…

Does this look magical to you?  To me it suggests movement and atmosphere…

Lots of snow.

The watercolor panel was add to the card front with Strip Adhesive.

The Sheltering Tree was stamped just outside the border once the background was dry.

Here’s my suggestion if you are planning to invest in the Brusho Colour Crystals.  Commit to using several watercolor panels to experiment with.  Create panels with and without borders to see which way you like them best…no right or wrong here.  Try lying down the crystals on the panel and spritzing with water and reversing that procedure.  Which way do you get the best results?

Now I know the colours come with instructions not to open the bottles.  Really!  Seriously?  Whatever, I opened all the bottles and did not punch a hole in the top.

I’ll confess to being a control freak…no lie!  So I use a small dry brush (it’s really just an old brush) like a small shovel and scoop crystals onto the brush and tap the brush handle with my index finger to add colour exactly where I want it.  Call me a rebel.  Don’t be afraid to give it a try.

Would I do a class in my studio with this product…uh, no!  But I do plan on making several videos.  Generally my “live” videos are on Sunday afternoons through my Rambling Rose Studio facebook page.  Be sure to “like” the page so you will be notified when videos are being shown.

Alright.  Are you ready for some Stuff ‘N Digits on this card?  Here you go…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstock and Watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Early Espresso
  • Stamps:  Sheltering Tree and Christmas Quilt (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  VersaMark, White Embossing Powder, White Paint Pen and Opaque White Watercolor, Low Tack Artists Tape. Smoky Slate Marker

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White card base is 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score, fold and burnished at 5-1/2″.
  • The watercolor paper is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  With low tack tape, tape watercolor paper to a clip board.  Burnish borders to keep watercolor from seeping under the tape.
  • Spritz the watercolor paper and be sure the entire surface is good and wet but not running off the paper.  You can smooth over the surface with an Aqua Painter if you want.
  • Here I used Yellow, Gamboge and Prussian Blue.  Where you see green is where the yellows mixed with the blue.  The Prussian Blue is intense so start lightly with the crystals.  Give the colours time to blend and encourage more blending with your water spritzer at this point.  You can touch the edges to soak up extra water that collect at the edges.
  • Let dry completely.
  • Stamp sentiment in VersaMark at right bottom corner,  sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat set.
  • Stamp Sheltering Tree stamp at left bottom corner just outside the border at bottom and left side in Early Espresso.
  • With a White Paint Pen add “snow” to the right side of tree and tops of branches.  Add dots with paint pen for snow.  If you want more snow in a variety of sizes, use an old brush and dip into a white opaque water color and splatter more snow.
  • Isn’t it magical?
  • Add this panel once dry to the card front using Strip Adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed this post and it will inspire you to give this new product a try.  Enjoy playing with it!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

will do!

Brusho!

So everyone knows now that Stampin’ Up! has added a dry color pigment to our product line.  I couldn’t be happier…Happy dance!

Page 26 of the Occasions Catalog shows using Brusho to create backgrounds…and they do that beautifully.  But today’s post shows another way to use this new product.

The Sheltering Tree stamp creates the focal point for this landscape on watercolor paper.

This close up shot shows the Clear Wink of Stella added after the colors were dry.

The colors seem to explode on the wet watercolor paper.

This medium is going to be hot.  It is so much fun to play with and the results are amazing.  Now I know the catalog shows punching holes in the container lid, but you have much more control of where the color lands if you use a small dry brush kind of like a shovel, scoop up some crystals and tap your index finger lightly on the brush handle directly over the area you want the color to be.

Probably going to do another “live” video on my facebook page to demonstrate…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this card…

Stuff

  • Paper:  This Whisper White and Dapper Denim Cardstock, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Early Espresso and Archival Basic Black plus Smoky Slate Marker
  • Stamps:  Sheltering Tree
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Brusho Crystal Colour Yellow, Gamboge, Prussian Blue, Moss Green, Clear Wink of Stella, Small dry brush, palette knife, Aqua Painter, Adhesive Strips

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score, fold and burnished at 5-1/2″.
  • The watercolor paper is 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″.
  • Stamp Sheltering Tree slightly off center.
  • With Aqua Painter filled with water wet the area where you want the leaves on the tree.  Using small dry brush and Yellow Crystals scoop colour onto brush and tap the brush handle lightly with your index finger.  Reload brush and continue adding the amount of yellow you want.  The shake the yellow crystal back into contain and close.  Repeat with the Gamboge crystals over the same area.  You can also spritz to move the colors once on the paper.  Let tree dry.  Add Clear Wink of Stella on the tree leaves.
  • Wet the sky area and repeat the dry brush technique to add Prussian Blue to sky.  This color is intense and doesn’t take as many crystals.  If you want, you can remove some color with a wadded tissue to create clouds.
  • Wet the area at the bottom leaving a dry area between ground and tree leaves.  Add Moss Green crystals.  While this is still wet, use your palette knife or the edge of a credit card and pull lines up from the wet color to create more texture that resembles grass.
  • Once the ground color is dry, use your Smoky Slate marker to add a tree trunk shadow.
  • This layer was added to the card front with Adhesive Strips.
  • The Thinking of You sentiment was stamped in Archival Basic Black on scrap Thick Whisper White, trimmed and added with SNAIL.
  • Inside there is a layer of Dapper Denim 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ with a layer of Whisper White over it 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″

Hopefully I’ll be able to get a video done with this product soon.  There will be another Brusho post this week.

A Panda Hello…

It won’t be long before Sale-A-Bration begins…January 3rd!  And this sweet little stamp set in today’s post can be yours FREE!

The day this set was presented in Salt Lake City two card ideas immediately popped into my mind and both will be spotlighted here this week.  Here’s today’s spotlight…

Did I hear a collective awwww?  Isn’t he the cutest?

The stamp actually has a balloon attached to his paw, but I cut that off.  Yikes you say?  You can always replace it on an Acrylic Block.

Did you notice the envelope in the first pic?

And the second thing that this set brought to mind at first sight is Lyla, my g’daughter.  She loves animals and stuffed animals and these pandas are right up her alley.

So today’s card will be flying to her house tomorrow because she loves getting snail mail.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this notecard…

Stuff

  • Paper:  3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecard, Lemon Lime Twist and Thick Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide
  • Stamps:  Panda Party
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Card Front Builder Framelits (to make fun foam stamp for trees), .005 Black Micron Pen, fun foam

Digits

  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-7/8″ attached to notecard with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White CS layer is 3-1/8″ x 4-5/8″.  Cut away the balloon and string from the stamp.  If you can’t bring yourself to do that (it’s a tool!) then try coloring the stamp with the Black Marker.  Placement is in lower left corner.  Cut a mask of the panda and cover stamped image.
  • Use the tree framelits from Card Front Builder Framelits and cut two fun foam trees for each then glue together with multipurpose glue.  If you add a tad of glue to the side that will attach to acrylic block, they will stick just fine.  Ink with Lemon Lime Twist and “edge” ink with Tranquil Tide.  Spritz a couple of times with water and stamp with mask in place.  Let dry and remove mask.  Magic!!!

  • The “hello” sentiment came from a Paper Pumpkin stamped in Archival Basic Black.
  • Draw a border lightly in pencil then doodle two overlapping squiggly lines around border skipping where stamping gets in your path.
  • Add this layer to card front with SNAIL.
  • You can see in the photo the stamping was repeated on the envelope…I just know Lyla will love this!

Later this week there will be a line of dancing pandas that will warm your heart.

Hope you enjoyed this sweet card.

Yesterday I did a “live” video demonstration on my facebook page Rambling Rose Studio if you missed it, it’s still there.

Hope your Monday is awesome…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

I especially like #1 and #7…

OnStage SLC Swaps…

The tradition of swapping handmade cards at a Stampin’ Up! convention is a treasured ritual of those attending.  You can make as many or few as you want, but you don’t want to miss joining in on the fun.

This year I have 100 swaps to share (remember, I do not like to make multiples of anything!) and I will come home with 100 new ideas to share with my peeps.

Here is my swap for this 2017 OnStage Convention…

And my Wink of Stella is showing up…yay!

I doubt there will be another like it since I made the stamp using a die and fun foam.

Stamping and spritzing on watercolor paper is magic…just sayin’

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this piece…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, Tranquil Tide and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Merry Patterns
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  3/8″ Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon, Wink of Stella, Fun Foam, MISTI or Stamp Positioner, Water Spritzer

Digits

The Thick Whisper White base is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″

The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 5-1/4″ x 4″ attached to base with SNAIL

To make your own stamp, cut two layers of fun foam for each die and glue together with multipurpose glue.

Cut watercolor paper 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Load your stamp with ink and spritz with water before stamping.  Using your spritzer add water to your image on the paper to promote “blooming” of color.  Set aside to dry.  You can soak up large drips with a tissue.

Once dry add Tranquil Tide ink to stamp, spritz with water and stamp just to the side of the previous trees.  Add a small amount of water to encourage the colors to move and mingle.  Let dry.

Add Old Olive ink to your stamp.  Do not spritz.  Stamp over your first Lemon Lime Twist trees.  Add Wink of Stella to just this tree after the ink drys.

Stamp sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist and Archival Basic Black.

Add ribbon/bow under sentiment and attach in back with SNAIL.

Glue watercolor paper to base with multipurpose glue and weight down the layers until dried.

I hope you will give this technique a try and let me know how you like it!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

I am so grateful to be where I am today…hope you are too!

Stay inky…be HaPpY!

Heartfelt Thanks…

The result from last week’s birthday surprises is a stack of thank you cards….fun to make and written with lots of gratitude and love.

I hadn’t planned on making two colors, but a phone call distracted me and the embossing paste dried.  So I made a new batch and started over.

I love the way some of the Calypso Coral hung out on my handmade stencil and transferred with the green.

I thought the contrasting colors would really pop…and they do!

Have you tried the Embossing Paste yet?  It is simple to use and easy to clean up with a little beforehand prep.  If you are using a reuseable stencil, have a small tray of water handy to drop it in.  You can also drop the Palette Knife in there too when you’re finished.

So let’s do this…

Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  I used SU! 3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecards, plus Old Olive and Pool Party Cardstock
  • Ink:  Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist
  • Stamps:  Oh So Eclectic
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Embossing Paste, Palette Knife, Stencil, Seasonal Layers Framelits.   If you want to use the framelit to make your own stencil you’ll need the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and watercolor paper.  Thick Whisper White CS might work.

Digits

  • The Old Olive layer is 2-7/8″ x 4-3/8″ attached with SNAIL to Whisper White notecard.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 2-3/8″ x 4-1/4″.  With your water tray ready, mix a small amount of Embossing Paste with your choice of reinker.  Secure stencil in place over this layer.  Apply paste over stencil like icing a cake using the palette knife.  Scrape away any extra paste.  Drop stencil and palette knife in water tray.
  • Remove stencil and let dry.  This happens quickly.
  • On scrap Thick Whisper White stamp flower in Pool Party and over stamp with line art in Tempting Turquoise or whatever color choices you have made.  Cut out with coordinating framelit.
  • Cut one stem from Seasonal Layers and one set of leaves from Eclectic Layers in Old Olive.  Add to card front with dots of multipurpose glue and weight it down with a block to dry.  You will need to trim “stem” to fit your card and flower.
  • Add flower with dimensionals.  Stamp sentiment on scrap Thick Whisper White in Tempting Turquoise and trim to 1/2″ x 1-1/2″.  Tag one end.  Add a Pool Party layer 5/8″ x 1-5/8″.  Tag one end.  Add to card front with dimensionals.
  • Then add your own sweet personal thank you…

How your Friday is going super!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Yay!  Let it go…

And stay inky…you’ll be HaPpY!

Copper Autumn…

Many of us love this time of year when cooler weather and pretty fall colors take the stage.  Just my thoughts as I put together this fall wreath…

Leaves from Painted Harvest Punch were made from a piece of water color paper “painted” in fall colors and then punched.

Touches of Texture stamped with VersaMark created the copper background.

Tranquil Tide woven ribbon and copper foil leaves here and there complete the fall feel.

And inside there’s lots of room for messaging…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Very Vanilla and Tranquil Tide Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Pumkin Pie, Real Red, Soft Suede and Tranquil Tide
  • Stamps:  Touches of Texture (splats), Painted Harvest (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Water Spritzer, Leaf Punch, Woven Tranquil Tide Ribbon, Linen Thread, Copper Embossing Powder

Digits

  • The Thick Very Vanilla base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Tranquil Tide layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to card front with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Very Vanilla layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp sentiment and Touches of Texture stamps in VersaMark, sprinkle with Copper EP and heat.
  • Add a band of Tranquil Tide woven ribbon over the sentiment with SNAIL.  Make bow with several loops and tie in center with Linen Thread.  Add to card front with glue dots.
  • Dampen a piece of water color paper completely with water.  Add reinker with an Aqua Painter or brush letting the colors “bloom” together covering the surface of the paper.  Encourage movement with the water spritzer or tilt the paper so colors will run in all directions.  Let dry or heat.
  • Punch leaves from dried water color paper.  Cut a 2-1/2″ circle and temporarily attach to card front.  Add leaves around circle to create a wreath.  Remove punched circle.  Punch three copper foil leaves and cut off indivicual leaves.  Add with multipurpose glue to wreath here and there.
  • Inside the Tranquil Tide layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Very Vanilla layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ attached with snail.  Add one leaf bunch with multipurpose glue at top right corner.

Now I’m thinking a Christmas wreath with these leaf punches…hmmmm.  The mind never rests.

“The Littles” and my son and daughter-in-love mandatorily evacuated their home in St. Petersburg yesterday.  Of course, Irma will not arrive in their neighborhood until tonight at high tide.  They are devastated and fully expect to go home to nothing as they live on the water.  We are hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.  As soon as they are able to get home, I feel sure Sweetums and I will be trucking it to Florida to see if we can help.  We have a generator and water pump in the back of the car and will pick up other supplies hard to find there before we leave.  I will keep you posted.

Tomorrow is class day here at Rambling Rose and it will be great to have all the girls here…a good distraction!

Hope you are safe and dry wherever you are…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today….
