Stampin' Up! Suite Sentiments and Timeless Love Stamp Sets - GDP065

December 05, 2016

Hello everyone! I made 3 romantic, vintage, easy cards  for  a beautiful Colour Challenge on Global Design Project this week.

We are making projects with Real Red, Crumb Cake, Early Expresso colours by Stampin' Up

If you have a minute please let me know which card in this post you like the most 1, 2 or 3 ?  Remeber you can join the challenge no matter in which country you are from... anyone can participate.

I made all the cards in this post  using  Timeless Love Stamp Set, Gorgeous Grunge  Stamp Set and Suite Sentiments Stamp (this last stamp set  will available to my lovely customers from January 4-2017 as we will have a new catalog!)

I also used Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies currently unavailable (so sorry)  as this stunning product was sold out in less than 2 weeks after ther promo was launched ( SEE HERE). But not worries Stampin' Up! is working hard to bring the dies  back ASAP so seat tight and get the credit card ready. lol.

We can't deny that when Stampin' Up! launch a promo is like if we were running a maraton. WE HAVE TO RUN AND BUY as 10 minutes after many products are gone forever!! Noooo... Last week there were dies at £13 and I missed them. I'm  still moaning about it!

Ok so my fisrt thought about this colour combo was that it will be  perfect  to make a Christmas project but then I  thought  I could  make  a little bit more  romantic looking card.

I grabbed a piece of Shimmery White Paper (9.5x14cm) and  I stamp  the sentiment " Everybody need a friend like you" with Early Expresso Ink. I love this fonts, and the sentiment is sooo pretty!

Then I stamped the flowers using Crumb Cake ink and I used one of the stamps in Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set to stamp the  ink splatteres with clear Versamark ink and Gold Embossing Powder.  

And I finally applied colour  using an aquapainter. I applied  Real Red ink  to the flowers and Crumb Cake and Early Expresso ink to  the leaves.

Once I finished  the previos project I made a  second one...

I  stamped the images with Crumb Cake ink but after adding colours with   Aquapainters  I felt something was missing  so I used the fine tip of a real red Stampin' white marker  to outline the flower petals . 

I  used a gold shimmery ink and splatter the background with it. Then I die cut the panel and simply pasted on a crumb cake card base with Stampin' Dimensionals but then something was still missing, so I sponged the edges of the card with Early Expresso ink and still felt that something was missing so I added gold metallic thread and  a Metallic Foil Doily.

I also added  Glossy accents to the flowers center and  Rhinestones! Phew.  At some point I felt I had to stop throwing things to this card.

Ok, after the messy playing with the previous card I though I needed to so something more clean, easier, less fussy.

It is just incredible how an idea becomes another, then another, and then another... at the end is something completely different ... Don't you think so?  

For this card  I used Whisper White Cardstock  insted White Shimmery paper.  I simply applied an embossing resist technique ( clear Versamark ink + Clear embossing powder) and I used an Stampin' Up! aquapainter to apply colour to the images. I allowed the  ink dry well before applying more in the same area.  

Until this day I wrongly though  I couldn't use Whisper White Cardstock  to apply  washes of colour with aquapainters  but   I was very careful of not saturating the paper with the inky water and everything was all right. 

 You can  have a look at the colouring technique I used for the cards today in one of my  previous videos.

  1. WOW! your cards are simply gorgeous! I love all three of them. but, if I HAD to select one, it would be . . . . #2. (but only if I HAD to pick) because I'd just want to take all three!
    thank you for the 'recipe' on what you used, and how you put your cards together.
    Now, I am off to my craft room, to make a card! thank you so much for the beautiful inspiration!
    (the link from GDP, did not take me to this post. I had to 'find' it from your home page. it was time well spent. :) )

  2. Your red flowers are stunning! It was great how you integrated the Crumb Cake into the leaves! Superb!

  3. Your cards are beautiful! CARD #1 is my favorite, but I honestly love them all!

  4. So hard to choose! But, as you asked, I most love the second one above, using the red flowers and the oval framelit. I love the subtle shading around the card too.

  5. I love them all but I would choose the middle one, if I had to.

  6. I love the 1st one! Did you stamp the white cardstock and then cut out the circle and pop it up with a dimensional? The stamps line up so well on the circle and on the card itself!

    1. Hi there, thanks for asking. Yes , I stamped the images, applied colours and then I did exactly what you have mentioned. ;) x Bibi
