    1/19 Coffee and Cards, Stamp ink and paper.

    1/19 Coffee and Cards Oh we had fun on 1/19 Coffee and Cards. This Stamp, Ink and Paper card just turned out soooo pretty!! Very Vanilla was the 3 3/4 x 5 layer I started the card. Here is where you need to look into your ink stock. I looked for a light and a slightly darker color ink that would look good at leaves and flowers. Soft Sea Foam paired well with Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride with Rococo Rose. The fifth ink was Soft Suede for the sentiments. We did find out that you COULD stamp twice the same color and get a similar look. Like the extra…

    Stamping in Embossing Paste using Dragonfly Garden

    Stamping in Embossing Paste I love trying different things like Stamping in Embossing Paste. Sometimes you just have to be brave and try stuff. This however is not new. I have a YouTube video on this back in 2018. For that video I used a now retired woodgrain stamp, check it out here. For these cards that tall image was calling to be colored. That was not all, it needed some texture. You will not only need your Dragonfly Garden stamp set (bundle saves 10%), Dandy Garden ribbon and Dandy Garden DSP, but embossing paste too. You could also get the whole Dandy Garden Suite. However, I love the coloring…

Hugs grandma!! Just like a snowflake these are just slightly different. Take a closer look. This live there was a lot of decisions. First starting with emboss or to not emboss.

    Stampin’ Write vs Stampin’ Blends

    Stampin’ Write vs Stampin’ Blends markers… I would like to take a second to talk you through the different marker types that Stampin’ Up! offer… Starting with Stampin’ Write markers. These are a water based marker just like our ink pads. You can use them on your stamps to “color” an image or choose a water to highlight. Next is the Stampin’ Blends. They are an alcohol based marker. Quick to dry, easy to use to color a pearl and wonderful to color an already stamped image. Which would you choose Stampin’ Write vs Stampin’ Blends?? Water based sample… For both the Stampin’ Write AND Stampin’ Blends I choose the…
