SSC200 Sketchy 200TH Celebration

Hi all! Welcome to my blog post for Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge #200! Here is the sketch challenge:

This is a great sketch and the design team created some beautiful samples. Click on the image above to go directly to the blog and the images.

I wanted to stick with the Silhouette Stamping technique I saw on Jennifer McGuire's You Tube:  My previous blog post used the same technique but in a different layout:

Thank you, Jennifer for the continued inspiration.
I started with a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White Thick card stock. To create the silhouette - I stamped the flower image from the "Touches of Textures" stamp set with the Stamparatus and Memento Black ink several times to get a good image. I filled in any open areas with the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. Once that was done, I re-stamped with the Versamark ink pad the images and filled in the open areas with a Versamark pen (not Stampin' Up!) and heat set using Clear Embossing Powder.
Now for the fun part! I taped off an area to the right with Post-It-Tape. With Stampin' Sponges I ink-blended, in a circular motion, from the bottom to the top with Call Me Clover, Balmy Blue, Lemon Lime Twist and Pineapple Punch. I love how the colors overlap and create additional colors! Remove the Post-It-Tape and you have a beautiful, clean and crisp line of color. I simple stamped the dotted image from the "Swirly Frames" set with Memento Black ink. Lastly, I created a sentiment with the "Rectangle Stitched Framelits" using "To My Dear Friend" from the "Soft Sayings Card Kit". This kit has the most beautiful items....umm may use it for an upcoming blog!

To finish I adhered the panel to a A2 Basic Black card base with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

A clean and simple card that could be re-created in many colors with almost any image. Perfect for a masculine card, birthday card, sympathy, get well, thinking of you...on and on! Always fun!

If you'd like to purchase any of these items, just click on the images below and thanks for sticking to the end! Happy 200th to SSC!!!
Product List

CAS Watercolour March Challenge

Welcome to my blog post for Clean and Simple Watercolor Challenge - watercolor on vellum!
As a Stampin" Up! demonstrator, we can only show current product. This Rose Garden Thinlit Die is now available to purchase on the clearance rack for $18.60 (was $31.00)! It is a beautiful large die with 2 rose dies, a label die, a flower die and a leaf die. Many many techniques could be done with this set. Once it sells out, it's gone.
I ran the large rose with leaves images through the Big Shot with Whisper White Thick card stock and just kept the outline. I glued this outline to a piece of Vellum and fussy cut.

The coloring was done with re-inkers, a watercolor brush and very little water on the back of the piece. Vellum will warp with water so use just a touch. I used Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight for the rose and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves. It is easy to add extra color to darken where you need it. Once dry, I set several large wooden blocks on it to flatten it out.
A few day later, I glued it to a Whisper White Thick A2 base which I had run through "Simple Stripes Textured Embossing Folder".  I used Tombow Liquid Adhesive in tiny drops along the back of the image where you can see the white diecut lines. This way, no adhesive shows on the front.

The sentiment is from the "Beautiful Bouquet" stamp set. I gold heat embossed it on the label die from the "Rose Trellis" Thinlit die from the Occasions catalog. This item may be discontinued at the end of March!
