Salt Technique Video

 

This is the follow up video for the Salt Technique  cards. If you are not subscribing to my newsletter, then you are missing the Salt Technique cards. These cards come out every Tuesday with my newsletter.  I bring you a different technique each Tuesday with the idea expanding your stamping. You can subscribe to the newsletter below the video.

Before we take a look at the video, many of you will be on Spring Break.  I will be taking a break too.  Everything will return to normal on March 20th.  However, my Stampin Pink Rose Blog and Pinterest will have an occasional post prescheduled.  So when you have time just take a peak and see if anything new has appeared. Also, don’t foget that Pinterest is a great place to check anytime because there are cards posted there that are not necessarily seen anywhere else.

Spring Is Coming

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for March 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring Spring or Spring related projects. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

We like to think spring is around the corner and naturally flowers are part of that season.  So I chose bright cheery color for this card. It is almost monchromatic, but I added just touch of Tip Top Taupe as narrow band to tie the words stamped in the Stitched Shapes Oval.

Tips and Tricks

Stamp Set:  The beautiful flowers from Oh So Succulent stamp set sitting on brick wall makes you think of all the flowers that will soon be blooming on the brick wall.  I wanted the special look for the words. So I chose the Stylized Birthday Stamp to give it a little elegance.  I believe script gives more a formal look which gives the elegance.

Color: When we think spring, we turn our eyes to bright and cheery spring colors. For me shades of pink are my favorite colors.  So I chose Flirty Flamingo. However, keeping one color would make the color blend into the design.  So we need another color that would compliment, but not distract from the primary color.  So this is where Tip Top Taupe comes into play.

 

Ink:  Tip Top Taupe, Early Espresso

Paper:  The inks set the tone for the paper colors:  Flirty Flamingo and Tip Taupe.  You will need Whisper White for the oval.  Using the white makes the words stamped in Tip Top Taupe.  the band is from the 2015-2017 Designer Series Paper.

Technique:  The technique is simply embossing your card stock with the Brick Wall embossing folder.

Embellishment: Stampin’ Up! has a way of making a card easy because the colors and products all coordinate together like the Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon.  Don’t forget to use your sponge daubers around the edge before you pop them up on dimensionals to make the flowers stand out.

Bundle: When you are able to bundle your stamp set and framelit, you win because you save 10%. So I used the Oh So Succulent stamp set with the Succulent Framelits Dies to make cutting out the flowers so easy. You simply stamp and cut. The flowers are stamped with Early Espresso ink and sponged around the edges.

Accessories: There are two framelits in this card. The Succulent Framelits was mentioned above, but there is one more… the Stitched Shapes Framelit. The Tip Top Taupe one is cut with scallop one and  the smaller piece is cut in Whisper White. The stitching around the edge sets it apart from any other oval. So cutting these out with ease is easy with your Big Shot.

Dressing in Style with Custom Tee

As the weather changes toward Spring, so does our wardrobe.  Therefore, I thought it would be fun to look at the Custom Tee stamp set in the Occasion Catalog with the framelit.  So today’s stamp addresses decorating that fabulous tee. This fabulous shirt could be a congratulation or a birthday card. You decide.

However, I want to notify you that the Facebook Live that was planning for March 6th has been postponed.  Please watch for announcements of the new date for Facebook Live.

Tips and Tricks

Stamp Set:  We are in the middle of basketball tournments and baseball will not be far off.  So the champ needs a T-Shirt that says “All-Star Champ”  which comes from Custom Tee Stamp Set.  The various words on this stamp make it easy to create t-shirt’s for different occasions. To add some pizzazz to the card I added Gorgeous Grunge and Moon Baby‘s stars. We are just around the corner from our retirement list and I hope Gorgeous Grunge doesn’t retire out. I forgot to mention that used a stamp from Work of Art. Can you tell where I stamped it?  It is behind the t-shirt.

Work of Art Clear-Mount Stamp Set

Paper:  The base is black card stock and Whisper White card stock holds the action.

Bundle:  The T-Shirt Builder Framelit Dies make it easy to create your shirt for a male of female.

Color: I tied the colors together by using the Marine Mist for the t-shirt and the grunge. The stars were a bonus and I used Daffodil Delight.  I felt the stars fit right in because of the words “All Star Champ.” The use of Archival Black for the words tied to the black card stock base.

 

Ink: Marine Mist, Daffodil Delight, Archival Black

Creative Side:  Now that I started the t-shirt, you can start by thinking of other ways to use this stamp set.

  •    birthday
  •    anniversary
  •    Father’s Day
  •     wedding

I have another idea on my Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/stampinpinkrose
