Here is nog een Super Simple Zondag kaartje in enkele stepjes gemaakt. Erg snell voor een SUper mooi resultaat. Lees hoe je kan dat in een paar minuten doen.

 

Today is another SUper Simple Sunday card made in a few minutes in 4 little steps. It was so fun to do as well. I really love this Beautiful You stamp set with theses vintage ladies. Well they make me think of the ladies dressed in the 50th, wearing long dresses and hats.

Watercolor Pencils in a Bullet Journal

bullet journal 1

Recently, I have been trying to reorganize everything to be more effective. And it start by grouping everything in one place, all my journals in one, all my notes, important phone numbers and to-do list, but also my daily tasks...
So I bought a Leuchtturm 1917 Bullet Journal.

In my journal, I am trying to stay minimalist to focuse on the task itself, being more organize. BUT I still want to have a little bit of colors in it. And since I hate when it ghost on the next page, I don't want to use having mediums. This is where our Stampin'Up! watercolor pencils are so great. I can add bits of colors everywhere and blend the crayons with the blender pen. I can assure you, it doesn't ghost at all! I wish we have more colors

 

At the moment, we have 12 great colors: Real Red, Calypso Coral, Pumpking Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Bermudag Bay, Pacific Point, Rich Razzelberry, Melon Mambo, Early Expresso, Basic Gray, Basic Black and Whisper White.

141709G

They blend so perfectly together that you can create more colors by using them on the top of each other. I will come back with another blog post about it.

102845G

For my Bullet Journal, I don't want a lot of liquid on my pages, so I use theses Blender Pens. But you can blend with your Watercolor Paintbrush too!

 

I have made some test using our wonderful makers too, and using the fine tips is also wonderful. The brush tip doesn't ghost with the pale colors either.

It is a great way to detress as well as using my material other than making cards, and I am totally in love with theses watercolor pencils and with my journal.

I will come to show more pages soon, and if you have any question about which Stampin'Up! material bleeds or ghost, just let me know. My last page is dedicated to test, so no arm and plenty of space to try.

4 days 'til Valentine's day: day #2

always together

Goedemorgen! Hier is de tweede Valentine's dag project!!!

Here is my 2nd Valentine's card in a very shabby look using our great masks and embossing folder as a stamp.

It's easy and fun to use our embossing folder other than with the Big Shot. Just ink it with your inkpad and rub your paper gently over it. Very simple for a great effect. This embossing folder is the Happy Heart.

I have used the Happy Patterns Decorative Masks that are now on sale in the clearance rack

And to finish the card, I used our fun Sunshine Sayings stamp set, using the words to create a sentence. The word "for" was from the stamp "so happy for You". The hearts come from the matching framelits. It's a bundle! Save 10% off!

I inked the words and the hearts to accentuate the shabby effect. And voila, a fun card with some great techniques.

Super Simple Sunday Projects serie #3 - Special Valentine's day.

ik hou van jou

 

Today's project is a Super Simple Sunday Project I made in a few minutes using a paintbrush to create the background, with some water and ink refills on Watercolor Paper. It dries faster when you use a heat gun. Note that you could use your waterbrush pen for that technique too but I wanted to go faster and make larger "lines".

I used the Sunshine Sayings bundle to finish the card. I have die cut the heart with into a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, same color I used for the card base and stamped the image using my Old Olive inkpad. (Save 10% with this bundle!)

Before I made this card, I was playing with the gorgeous Window Box framelits and had some little hearts left over from the box I made. I didn't want them to go to waste, they are so cute and so tiny. So I used them in the middle of the big heart.

To finish up the card, I used the Labeler Alphabet to create the Dutch sentiment. I love how it is simple and quick to create any sentiment we want with this stamp set. The ink I used is Memento Black.

This was another easy and fun card to make.

Now I want to share with you the most darling little card I have been receiving this week. A love note card from a "secret" admire. Isn't that adorable? Well the post office spoiled the secret, since I can see where it is coming from, but my heart melted anyway.
So, to my secret admire, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

secret admire

To create this card, she used the lovely Sending Love Suite in the occasion catalog page 14. (did Stampin'Up! do it on purpose? I will never know, but placing this suite page 14 for Valentine's messages is beyond going to tiny details... It's simply amazing to think of such tiny things, in my opinion)

4 days 'til Valentine's day: day #1

sending love 1

Valentine's day is around the corner and I have been playing with all the hearts I could find in my craftroom, making cards for loves ones around me. We do not need this special day to tell people we love them, and It is also a good day to tell friends how precious they are.

This card is made with the FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set Delicate Details. I really love that stamp set, that you can use like here in black on a background, or use with different inks, just one stamp, only around the edge or on so many different ways.

After using a cool technique to make this background, I use the Dragonfly Dreams bundle to create this beautiful dragonfly. As you can see, it is very shiny.
My secret for this shiny look is to use clear embossing powder to make the wings super shiny. I did the same for the big LOVE sentiment. The tiny "sending" sentiment is embossed with White Embossing powder.

The Sending love sentiment was made using the Sunshine Sayings bundle. I punched the little sentiment using our Classic Label punch.

DIY Oh So Succulent card and DSP

oh so succulent happy

 

Ik heb deze kaart gemaakt met de Oh So Succulent stempel set, en leuk DIY Designer Series Paper zelf gemaakt in enkele minuten.

This Oh So Succulent stamp set is part of a beautiful serie in the Spring / Summer catalog. There is a nice bundle (stamp + framelits) with 10% off, a beautiful garden kit, ribbons, DSP... It caught my eyes and it was "Love at first sight", really!

I wanted to use the stamp set to create the DSP myself. I have the beautiful matching DSP but I also like doing my backgrounds myself, playing with the inks and doing my own design.


This card was fun to make and since there are 30 stamps in the set, yes! 30, there are endless possibilities to play with! The set comes with nice sentiments too! So the only addition I made for this card was using 2 enamel dots in the silver/gold collection. That's it!

The white edge around the card was made with Post It notes. My card looks like a 3 layers card, in fact there are only 2.

TIP of the day: By using the stamp off technique, my card looks like there are 6 colors, but in fact I only used 4. It's a great way to have "more" colors on a card even if you don't have many inkpads.

 

Material for this card:

  • Oh So Succulent bundle.
  • Whisper White and Soft Sky cardstocks.
  • Inkpads: Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango.
  • Gold Enamel dots.
  • Memento inkpad.

Super Simple Sunday Projects serie #2

IMG_20170130_135741784

This Super Simple Sunday project was done in a flash, really! A sheet of our beautiful Serene Senery DSP and 2 adorable bees from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and framelits was all I used to decorate that card. The sentiment comes from the Window Shopping stamp set. (Both sets are bundles with 10% off! don't miss the deal, available until may 31 only!!)

 

To create this card:

  1. Stamp 2 bees with Memento ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, then use your bigshot to cut them with the matching framelits. Cut off the wings.
  2. Stamp 2 more bees into Vellum. Cut in the Bigshot again, then glue with the Fine-tip glue pen.
  3. Use a yellow marker to color the bees, I used Crush Curry.
  4. Glue your bees, draw some dotted lines with your Project Life pen (They come in a pack of 2. I used the Nr5, I think that Nr1 was too small)

IMG_20170130_135747808

Tip of the day: When using the Fine-tip Glue pen, I realized that if you put too much of it, it will dry clear and shiny on your project. It has happened to me many time, and you can't remove it. It stay for good :) . Then looking at the result and the bright spot that it leaves, it made me thought of our Crystal Clear bottles. Sadly theses are retired but wait! Now we have another product that does the same effect!! Isn't that great?

On the bees, I applied a generous amount of the Fine-tip Glue pen to obtain a 3D effect and let it dry over night because I did it in the evening, but it dries much quicker than the Crystal Clear, so it's a double win. The fine tip makes it also much easier to apply too!!

Plus this glue is really inexpensive, you need so very little to glue and it glues SO strongly. I higly recommand you to add it on your wishlist!

A Tip from Sara Douglass, our CEO at Stampin'Up!. This week she shared a video showcasing the Fine-tip Glue pen and how she simply opened her almost empty bottle and add drops of ink refills inside. She then had an equivalent of Slime for kids, this green glue thingy thing that they love so much. (thanks to the stars, my kid hates it!)

Can you see how shiny it is on the left bottom? Well the whole monster is, and it looks 3D too!
Stamp set: Yummy in My Tummy

It's funny how we get the same idea at almost the same time, don't you think?
