Builder Birdcage and Avant Garden

Sometimes it’s fun to combine two stamp sets to create a picture on your card, thus today’s share combining Builder Birdcage and Avant Garden.

I wanted to create a happy sunny place for the birds to be singing away to each other.  By applying the background flowers and leaves from the Sale-a-bration Avant Garden Stamp set, I easily achieved that.

Builder Birdcage and Avant Garden cards by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com

I stamped two layouts in two colours to share with you today.

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks:

Builder Birdcage and Avant Garden – Card #1

  • The first combines the lovely flourish stand with the smaller birdcage combined with the elegant larger hanging cage and my little birds singing to each other.
  • Both are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • The Avant Garden background is stamped in Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron
  • I need a pile of birthday cards for March, so I used the sentiment from the Avant Garden stamp set for this one.
  • By adding a Basic Black Mat around my art piece, it pulls the images and the sentiment together into the picture.
  • I added some Whisper White Baker’s twine (doubled), across the top for texture.

Builder Birdcage and Avant Garden – Card 2

  • I reversed the colours for this one with the card base in Blushing Bride.
  • I like to use the same colour card stock and ink to help pull my art/card together.  Using co-coordinating Stampin’ Up! products allows me to do that with ease.
  • This time the little birdie is by himself, greeting you with the fun font sentiment.
  • I didn’t mat this art piece, instead I added some elements:
  • 1/2 of a Lace Doily tucked in behind the right side
  • some Gold 1/8″ ribbon down the left.
  • Check closely on the flowers of both, I added small white pearls to the center
  • and just a flash of bling with a single rhinestone at the top of the cage.

You can create either of these cards in 10 minutes or less.

And, you can earn the Avant Garden Stamp Set for FREE during Sale-a-bration by simply placing a $60.00 Product order through my Canadian Online Store.

Black Magic is the Technique of the month over at Stamping and Blogging and as we just loaded our 500th Stamping video into the site, we wanted to celebrate that milestone and share the video with you.

Avant Garden and a Little Black Magic card is created by doing your artwork on BLACK card stock.

You stamp your image in Whisper White Craft Ink, and then build the colour up over it.  For today’s video, I’m using the new Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils to create my art piece.

Perfect Mix Cards and FREE Tutorials

Hi stampers, today I have MORE Perfect Mix cards and FREE Tutorials for you.

Today we finish the Perfect Mix Cards and Free Tutorials class with the second set of cards and PDF Downloads:

Perfect Mix Cards and FREE tutorials by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com

When I create a card class I always try to use a variety of stamps in the set so these cards highlight the mittens and spatchella stamps.

I love a new “clean” brightly coloured set of oven mitts – how about you?  I always seem to be happy when I bake. Maybe it’s the lovely smells, or the anticipation of that first bite when it’s finally ready, or my husband bouncing around impatiently asking “is it done yet”, haha…

Most of my baking is done in prep for card classes.  When we are finished we spend time visiting over tea and a goodie.  Usually I’m asked for the recipe which I have written out ahead of time and this stamp set would be a lovely way to fussy up the recipe cards.

Perfect Mix Cards and FREE tutorials by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com

I stayed with my retro colour combo of Real Red and Mint Macaron for this second set of cards as well, I just love this fresh and clean combo.

For Card #4 I broke away from the Designer Paper and created my own “background noise” by repeatedly stamping the spatchella. (some call this creating wallpaper – I like to call it background noise”.

You start by stamping one row in the middle from corner to corner, and then offset the stamping for the additional rows.  it’s quite easy, especially with the clear mount stamps.

For the eggs, I used Mint Macaron to paint the holder, and look closely, just a hint of PoolPparty ink down the right side of each to create a little shadow.

So, that’s my Perfect Mix Cards and Free Tutorial Class for you, hope you enjoyed it:

Perfect Mix Card Set FREE tutorials

Hi Stampers,  I have a fun share for you today, ok, half of a fun share of the Perfect Mix Card Set  FREE tutorials haha – you get the other half tomorrow!

Perfect Mix Card Set FREE Tutorials is created with a new stamp set “Perfect Mix” from the Occasions Catalogue.  I finally pulled it out this weekend to create with and it’s adorable!

Perfect Mix card set Free Tutorials by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com

I decided that Mint Macaron and Real Red would be great colours to give my cards a little “retro” feel.

I used water colour paper for the main images so that I could use my aqua painter and ink pad lids to color them.

The Dotted 2015 – 2017 In Color Paper Stack paper in Mint Macaron also worked nicely for my retro vibe.

Today, instead of just giving you the cutting instructions, I’m sharing a One Sheet Wonder for each card.  These are sheets I create for Stamping and Blogging with the image, product list, cutting instructions and bullet points to create each project.

To date we have 258 One Sheet Wonders inside Stamping & Blogging covering a variety of Stampin’ Up’s current stamp sets.

These sheets are great to print off and save after you have created the projects.

If you are a Demonstrator:  The OSW are not watermarked so that you can use them for hand outs in your “in person” classes.

Here are the OSW Download for the Spoon Card – Perfect Mix – spoon card.

Perfect Mix card set FREE tutorials by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com

and these are the instruction for the mixer and bowl card – Perfect Mix – bowl and beater card

There are two more cards in this set that I will share with you tomorrow plus an additional 2 OSW will also be loaded to Stamping and Blogging tomorrow – (sorry, I have a class in my studio today, so NO time, haha).

Other uses for this stamp set:

  • Share your favourite recipes with customized recipe cards
  • Scrapbook pages – baking with your children or grandchildren
  • Tags for your baked goodies

Timeless Love and Delicate Details

Hi stamping friends, today I’m sharing a card I created by combining Timeless Love and Delicate Details stamp sets.

I admit to combining quite a few Stampin Up products on this card but Timeless Love and Delicate Details are the two stamp sets.  Delicate Details is from the Sale-a-bration Brochure and can be earned for free with a $60.00 product order.

Timeless Love and Delicate Details card by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com

Not just for Valentine’s day – although it would be perfect.  This card could also be a wedding card, or just to support a dear friend.

The idea for today’s card came from combining two sketch challenges for this week:

The Card Concept 66 challenge.

and Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #274

Of course I took a little creative license with this sketch by using my die cut heart image instead of the squares.

Timeless Love and Delicate Details card by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com

Sandi’s Tips – n – tricks for the Timeless Love and Delicate Details Card

  • I stamped three of the lace images in Crumb Cake at the bottom of the card front.
  • Using the “stamping off” technique or “Generation Stamping”, I went third generation (stamped off twice) with the Timeless Love Stamp in the background.
  • I die cut the heart from a piece of Kraft card stock
  • The flowers were stamped in Crumb Cake, heat embossed in clear and then water coloured with my aqua painter and Blushing Bride, Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron ink pad lids.  I then cut them out and added them to the heart.
  • The word “love” is a die cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits set die cut and sponged in Blushing Bride.
  • A sprinkling of pearls completes the card.

Timeless Love and Delicate Details card by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com

Timeless Love and Delicate Details:

  • Card Base:  Thick Whisper White 4-1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5-1/2
  • Card Front:  4 x 5-1/4
  • Heart:  Kraft card stock 4 x 4
  • Love:  Blushing Bride 1-1/2 x 2-1/2
