Stampin with Liz Design: All is Bright - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop!

Hi, welcome today at the November Artisan Blog Hop! Today me and my super talented friends of the Artisan Team would like to show you some amazing inspiration with products from the
All is Bright suite! You can start hopping by clicking on the next button at the end of this blog post!

I created three fun cards with this amazing suite and a cute gift box! This suite is just so versatile! I do love a great background, for my first two cards I created some fun watercolor winter scenes! I used Thick Whisper White Cardstock as a base for these cards with Watercolor Paper up front. I added different layers of colours. I love using plastic for this technique, it gives an amazing result. If you'd like to know how this technique works, you can watch a Video Tutorial here! I'd love for you to follow me on YouTube, I will post a few times a week if time will allow me. I used the gorgeous text that is stamped and diecutted as well from the amazing Merry Christmass to All bundle.

After finishing the watercolor part, I added some stamping with Versamark ink and embossing powder. I used a stamp from the Magical Mermaid stamp set to create snow. For the second card I used the string of light bulbs and stars from the Making Christmas Bright set. I added stitched borders on both cards using the stitched die from the Stitched Labels Framelits set in a playful way. The text I've used is also from the Making Christmas Bright set. I coloured a piece of Whisper White paper with Night of Navy and Bermuda Bay ink with a sponge, diecutted it with a Stitched Circle Framelits and then stamped and embossed the text.

For my last card I used a base of Pool Party Cardstock. I stamped the string with lights on Whisper White Cardstock and coloured them with the Stampin Blends Markers. They are so much fun! If you take a good look at the photo you will see I stamped the fun circle from the set several times on my background, just lightly in Pool Party ink. The amazing tekst comes from the Merry Christmas to All set. Just a bright, happy Christmas card!

Have you seen the amazing Baker's Boxes? You can find them in the Autum/Winter catalog as well as the All is Bright suite. They are amazing gift boxes. Fill them with homemade cookies, candles or something else! I just stamped this fun box with the text stamp 'Merry'. On top of the box I adhered the tekst Christmas diecutted with the amazing Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. Just close your box by using a piece of ribbon and adhere a tag! You can find the tag I used in the stamp set Merry Christmas to All.

Stampin with Liz Design: Ewe and Me Forever Card with Tutorial!

Welcome to a new blog post today! Today's card is a very sweet one, created with the fun stamp set Ewe And Me Forever from My Favourite Things. A set with the cutest sheep ever, which comes with coordinating dies. Don't you just love that? I actually don't hate a bit of fussy cutting, but still happy when a stamp set comes with dies, it just gives you the perfect cut image! Check the end of this blog post for a Video Tutorial!

I love creating my background first. I diecutted a piece of white cardstock with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die. I used the Stencil Cloud to create the sky. Stencils are very easy to work with. Use a blending tool and ink and just rub over the edges of the stencil.

I blended a piece of white cardstock next with Ranger Distress Old Paper ink and diecutted it with a Grassy Border die. I diecutted the fence from white cardstock with the Animal Farm Fence die and then coloured it with a brown Copic Marker. Of course you can use coloured paper if you'd like.

I blended some paper with the Ranger Distress Picked Raspberry ink and stamped the tekst 'I love Ewe So Much' with Versamark ink on this paper. Then sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heatsetted it with a heat tool. I diecutted the hearts with the coördinating dies. I coloured the sheep with Copic Markers. Check the video below to see how this card came about!

Stampin with Liz Design: In Paris Card with Video Tutorial!

Welcome to another Stampin with Liz Design blog post! I'm here today with another fun card to share with you! I started playing today with the nice sketch posted at Card Challenges for this weeks challenge at MFT and this card came about! I always love a great sketch, it's a great way to get you started with creating! Don't forget to watch my Video Tutorial at the end of this blog post.

I started by thinking what stamp set I wanted to use. I choose the In Paris stamp set from MFT. The vocal point of the sketch are the three starts. I build around the idea of using the hot air balloons on those places. I then started thinking about my background and which images I wanted to use besides the balloons. I stamped all my images and diecut those before I started colouring. I used my Copic Makers to colour with. At the end of this post I'll list the colours I used.

I created the background with the Cloud stencil, a blending tool and three ink colours. I used the Mini Distress ink pads from Ranger, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet. I added some ink spatters in all those colours and added a few white spatters. I adhered the background on to a basic card from Smoky Slate Cardstock from Stampin' Up.

I stamped my text on black cardstock with Versamark ink and used white embossing powder and a heat tool to emboss the text. I adhered a small piece of paper from the Black & White Stripes Paper Pack. I then finished my card by placing the images on dimensionals on to my card. Would you like to see how this card came about? Check the Video Tutorial below, or watch on YouTube in HD!
