BSU022217



So I'm pretty excited about this card. This week on BSU we are featuring the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. I also paired mine with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits. Love Them!!! This is one of those cards that sort of grew as I was stamping it....no prethought out plan here. LOL

I started with a base of Old Olive card stock and I layered the leaf pattern from the Serene Scenery DSP from the Annual Catalog. I've had this paper for a while but haven't used it much....this was perfect. I cut out the detailed dragonfly in Old Olive. I then stamped the detailed dragonfly image in Island Indigo then I took the shadow wing image and colored it on the stamp with Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Island Indigo stampin write markers.....huffed on it and stamped it over the detailed image. Love how it blended the colors so nicely. But.....it was a solid layer.....and i wanted to be able to get the detailed green cut to show up more so I decided to detail cut the stamped dragonfly. Oh Oh Oh....loved that effect. So I layered them with dimensionals added some bling to the center of the dragonfly and glued it down on my DSP. I stamped the sentiment that comes with this set in Island Indigo. I just love how it came out!

Hello and Welcome to this weeks Broke Stampers Unite Challenge. This week is all about Color Combos. So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, and White. When I laid these colors together I instantly thought how delicious they looked and I had to use the Cool Treats stamp set. Doesn't this card just make you want in ice cream cone?

I started with a base of Crumb Cake and layered a piece of So Saffron. I stamped the lil dot from the Cool Treats stamp set in So Saffron to give it a lil boarder interest. I then used the matching Frozen Treats Framelits to cut out my ice cream scoops, the cherry and the cone. I stacked them all together using some dimensionals to pop them off the page a bit. I stamped the sentiment in Blushing Bride and added a couple Rhinestone Jewels to the top and bottom. Layered the whole thing onto my card base and then I had a craving for ice cream for three days afterward. LOL

Welcome to this weeks BSU Challenge. It's techinique week, and this weeks technique is Watercolor.
I chose to do a watercolor background using an aqua painter and Pacific Point ink on Shimmery White Card Stock. I pressed ink into my ink pad lid and then using the Aquapainter swiped the ink all over my background layer. If you try this and you don't get an intense enough color you can let it dry some and then apply more ink using the same method. I then stamped the two smaller balloons using the Tuxedo Momento ink pad. Using the Up and Away thinlit dies I made the Red and yellow balloon. Istamped the sentiment in Real Red and layered the whole thing on Real Red card stock. I finished off with a few clouds, also using the thinlets, and popping them up with some dimensionals.

Welcome to this weeks Broke Stampers Unite Challenge. Because this it the first of February our theme is Love/Valentines. I what to do, what to do? I decided to use the Beautiful You stampset and put a Valentines twist to it. I started by making a mask for the floral heart from the Bloomin' Love stamp set out of the Annual Catalog. I then stamped the heart upside down on some Whisper White card stock in Real Red and placed the mask I made over it. I stamped the girl from Beautiful You at the point of the heart to make it look like her dress. I did some watercoloring on the background with an aqua painter in Old Olive and Marina Mist and let it dry. I also used the aqua painter to color in the dress with Real Red. I then stamped and cut out the small flowers from the Bloomin Love set and with Dimensionals popped them up on the dress skirt. I added some Rhinestone Jewels to give it a lil bling. Layered all of that on some Old Olive and the a base of Real Red. I used some silver ribbon to finish it off and stamped my sentiment in Basic Black. The picture doesn't do it justice but I do love how it came out.
