Years ago, Stampin' Up! carried another truck and this one is even more awesome.  It's a versatile set that can be used for birthdays, autumn-themed cards, and holiday cards just like this one.  It can also be bundled with its coordinating dies for a 10% discount and that die collection can be used to a 3D little truck! You'll see more on that at a later date!

Here's the how-to video tutorial for this Christmas card idea...enjoy!

Make a Monochromatic Card with Stampin' Up! Products

IMG_3427 2Today's project is a pretty monochromatic card made the Very Versailles stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  If you read and watched yesterday's post and video tutorial, you may recognize a portion of this card.  (Take a look at that Leaves Trinket embellishment.)

In choosing the "greens" for this card, I took my cue from some designer paper.  The Garden Lane Designer Series Paper featured these colors.  This always helps me choose coordinating colors for my cardmaking projects whether I am using the designer paper or not.  I figure if Stampin' Up! combines these colors to work together then so can we!

Here's the video that will take you through the process of putting this card together.  I love the feel of this set and have enjoyed playing with it...lots of possibilities!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • The base is cut from Garden Green at 4-1/4" x 11".
  • The Garden Lane DSP is cut 4" x 5-1/4".
  • Mint Macaron card stock was used for stamping and punching.
  • After the video was recorded, I added the scallop circle in Mossy Meadow behind the sentiment.

Here is a listing of the Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this card.

Product List

Thank you for joining me for today's Stampin' Up! monochromatic card idea using the Very Versaille stamp set and Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  I hope it inspires you to create today!  Keep checking back for more ideas and tips and I will see you again soon!

Sunset Watercolor Background in Cardmaking

Sunset-watercolor-background-7-1If you love watercoloring in cardmaking, the new watercolor paper from Stampin' Up! is a must-have! 

It was used here to make this sunset background.  My local club ladies made this card and no two sunsets looked alike!  They were all beautiful!

And, if you haven't discovered this beautiful new Sailing Home bundle, you are in for a treat!  It's beautiful and versatile and another must-have for your collection.  You can see more cards made with this awesome bundle HERE.

Let's take a look at the video tutorial for the watercolor sunset background.

 

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Let your watercolored piece completely dry before stamping on it.  Use a Heat Tool to speed up the process if needed.
  • The watercolor paper is cut 3" x 4".
  • The Night of Navy base in the video is cut to 4-1/4" x 11" but if you choose, the 5-1/2" x 8 1/2" piece works for this project, too.
  • You'll need approximately 3" x 4" of Whisper White for stamping and die cutting. 
  • The Mango Melody piece is cut 3-1/2" x 4-1/2".
  • If you so choose, you may put a drop of ink refill on a clear block rather than in the stamp case lid as seen in the video.

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this cardmaking project.  I would be honored to serve you as your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!  Just click the links below to read more about a product or to purchase.  Thank you!

Here's the video with the super simple method of using trim or ribbon on your handmade cards.


This technique is a great way to use ribbon, lace, or trim while just using a smidgen of your embellishment.

Also, if you plan on mailing your cards, its the perfect way to add this bit of texture without adding too much bulk or weight to your cards.
