New in studio Class announced yesterday -check it out here
and, Tuesday I took a day off from creating, and cleaned my studio….mostly because I ran out of room and could not find ANYTHING – LOL – cleaning always renews my creativity so yesterday I had a full day of creating. I made the cutest little gift card holder for Stamping and Blogging – a brand new design – ladies (and gents Hi Darrell!), the video and tutorial will both be loaded this morning. Then, I started creating with a new stamp set, JUST MARRIED from page 8 of the Spring Catalog – not because I needed a wedding card, but because I needed a birthday card, and I absolutely adore the cake in that stamp set – and this would make a very nice wedding card too – just change the sentiment to “congratulations” and color the cake the colors the couple chose for their wedding.
Card Recipe is at the bottom of this post (in pink)
isn’t it cute!….love, love love!…here is how I colored it.
I used my Stampin Write Markers, Gumball Green, Melon Mambo, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Regal Rose, colored right onto the stamp. Then, I cut them out with my Labels Framelits and my Big Shot.
Next, I got rid of a little frustration by stabbing my card stock – multiple times, tee hee…ok, we call it “Piercing”, with the piercing tool, piercing mat, and the Festive Paper Piercing Pack.
Which adds a nice detailed layer without adding bulk. love the clean lines, and white on white!…really makes that cake pop!..
and did you happen to notice this little goodie at the top of my card? It’s created with Stampin’ Up’s! new, SIMPLY PRESSED CLAY and the BUTTONS & BLOSSOMS CLAY MOLDS….crazy fun, and sorry, I can’t demo them until the catalog goes live, but I can show you some finished ones that I have been playing with.
The clay is very pliable, comes white, so you add a couple of drops of reinker, blend it and then pop the clay in the mold…The instructions tell you to wear rubber gloves for this – very good idea – I had Melon Mambo fingers and nails for two days!…..hair shampoo gets rid of it by the way ladies…..LOL…
anyway, that was yesterday, today is a brand new day!…so I’m off to get my chores done so I can play (ehem, work in my studio for the day), I have new ideas burning a hole in my little brain, LOL. I’ll share them tomorrow – another for you, and another for Stamping and Blogging…..until then…Happy Stamping
