over the stamp.

almost everyone has one. Overlap cake racks for more storage if your drawer is long enough. And you can stack smaller wheels ontop of each other. What do ya think?

The border was done by diagonally masking off the corners and using my stamp a ma jig for perfect alignment. So proud of myself, rarely do these things turn out as I imagine them!

I feel like it's been an eternity since I made a card!
But lookie what I made today..after hours of looking for my snail adhesive. I tell you I only find things when I'm not looking for them lol.
Anyway this stamp has been on my wish list for ages! And this is the first of many cards with it I'm sure.
Sponging directly on the stamp: Regal rose, Rose red, Bravo burgundy and Garden green. The edges were sponged with Pretty in pink while still in the die to get the border.
The background dots are done with a Stampin Up Perfect polka dots embossing folder on Riding hood red cardstock. I then painted over, waited for it to dry and sanded the dots to bring the colour back through and mounted on Pretty in pink...what do ya think?

Anyway my first idea was to just glitter the frosting, and at the time I was going to make dozens of them for my swaps but somehow after making the first one I looked like the milky way!
I wanted the look of frosting, but wanted to steer away from using soo much glitter. It needed something, but I was stuck until I saw what Tui did here. Brilliant! Why didn't I think of that?!
So I outlined the frosting and filled it in with crystal effects. then placed the beads while it was still wet. After it had dried I decided the cherry needed bling, and again using the crystal effects filled it in and sprinkled on the glitter.
Be sure to check out Tui's blog, you won't be disappointed!
(The card base and frosting is Pixie pink. Pink Passion stampin pad, Parisian breeze DSP background and Raspberry Tart DSP which has been crimped)

The main image is stamped in staz-on and watercoloured using markers and an aqua painter. The flowers on the hula girl and on the tips if the flower have kindy glitz, and using a crop-a-dile I added the SU jumbo eyelet to the top.

(Stampin Up - Upsy Daisy, Sweet little sentiments)
Now after stamping off on a scrap piece once or twice, using the same colour go over parts of the stamp with the edge of your inkpad or inked sponge dauber before stamping. You could also do something like this using 2 colours as long as the second colour added is darker or you'll stain your lighter colour inkpad.
( Stampin Up - A Happy Heart)
Keep it soft and simple. But if it looks like it's not quite finished, make the focal point pop out of the background using crystal effects or glitter glue like I have on the previous two images.

I love this Stipped Rose stamp! Unfortunately for me I didn't know how much I wanted it until after it retired, and I was having a very hard time obtaining one. Lucky for me my friend Theresa sent me a whole lot of stamped ones as a RAK! So here is just one of a bunch I've made.
First I coloured the image with pencils using two tones per colour on whisper white and mounted it on rose red cardstock that had been first stamped with the dotted background using versamark. I then went over the edge of the petals in crystal effects, which really gives it a 3d effect. Cut an oval out of vellum and punched the edge with the scallop edge punch and adhered it over rose. I cut a small slit on the side of the card and tied the ribbon around the card front. Added corner punch in shimmer to finish off.

The background trees from Happy Camper are stamped on whisper white in garden green and chocolate chip marker with a layer of coloured vellum ontop (You could easily create your own coloured vellum sheet with a brayer). Another row of trees is added ontop. Card base is creamy caramel and the bear and fire are stamped on kraft in chocolate chip. The fire is easy to create using red, orange and yellow pens. Shade a little red on the top of the flames, a little orange and then yellow. Draw a line inbetween each log to define them better and create shading and your done!
