June Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop ~ Perfect Pairs

Welcome to the Grand Vacation achievers hop for June. This month we are excited to show off new Stampin’ Up! products from the just released 2015 – 2016 Annual Catalog/Catalogue that is being paired with something we had previously from the catalog. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects. Get your wish list ready!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Selene Kempton or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Selene Kempton. 

Today's challenge was "Perfect Pairs" and I chose to pair up my favorite past colors with a brand new stamp set called You're Sublime.

One of my all time favorite color sets, that I seem to go back to over and over, is Rich Razzleberry, Rose Red and So Saffron.  I paired that up with some watercolor paper for a quick and easy card for this Blog hop.



Measurements:
Base: 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 5 1/4" x 4, and embossed with the Lovely Lace embossing folder
Layer 3: 6" piece of Rich Razzleberry Cotton Ribbon 1/4"
Layer 4: Rose Red 2 1/2" square Tilted so it looks like a diamond
Layer 5: Rich Razzleberry 2 1/4" square
Layer 6: Water Color Paper 2 1/4" square
Layer 7: Rich Razzleberry Cotton Ribbon, tied in a bow.

Directions: 
  1. Stamp the loads of thanks (on the diamond  ~ so that the points are straight up and down) using Stazon Ink.
  2. Using So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Rose Red and Rich Razzleberry Markers, color in the image to your tastes.
  3. Run layer 2 through the big shot with the Lovely Lace embossing folder.  
  4. Attach the ribbon to the back of layer 2 using two glue dots on the back side of the card, either end. 
  5. Assemble the layers as shown in the photo and attach them to your card.  Take note to put the rose red layer on the diamond, the rich razzleberry on the square and the watercolor paper on the top layer.
  6. Attach the bow to the front of your card with a glue dot. 
  7. Enjoy!

6/1 Stampin' Up New Catalog, New Stamps! Endless Wishes and You've Got This. How to watercolor with blender pens and stamp off quick tip tutorial

Hello Friends!

I'm so excited about the new catalog that went live TODAY!  Oh my gosh, I've already placed two personal orders that I'm so super excited about!  Today, I would like to share this card using the You've Got this Stamp Set and Endless Wishes Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!  I did a similar card with my stamp clubs this month and they loved the technique.

I just changed up the sentiment to make it easier to put into my orders as thank you cards for this month



Measurements For This Card:
Base: Sahara Sand 8 1/2 x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Blackberry bliss 5 1/8 x 3 7/8"
Layer 3: Very Vanilla Card Stock 5 x 3 3/4"

In the video I show you how I got the super light background, by "Stamping Off."  It made the cool squiggle background.  Then I stamped, full strength in Blackberry Bliss ink, and moved it with a blender pen.  I only moved the color on the left and bottom, and I did speed up the video so you could see me watercolor the whole card, but it wouldn't take too long.  So, here's this Tuesday's Tip Video.


I am planning to share more videos (every Tuesday) so be sure to check back for a Tip Next Tuesday too!

5/29 Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek, Friendly Wishes Stamp Set & a video to show the Vintage Scrunched Ribbon Quick Tip

Good Afternoon Friends!

After this weeks blog hop, I got a few emails on how to do the Scrunched Ribbon Technique with the Dotted Lace Trim Ribbon that will go live on June 2nd from Stampin' Up!

So, I made a video!

This is a different card than my original post for the blog hop, but we made this cute and quick card in stamp club this month.

When you see the technique you might say, that's it?  But it comes out so pretty!  This new ribbon is the perfect ribbon to scrunch because it's nice and thin and won't make your cards too "bunchy" to mail.  {I think that's a new word}.




So this was a quick one!  I hope you enjoyed the video.  Here's a closer look at the project.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!


Love,
Selene Kempton
