Special Reason

Welcome to Spectacular Stampin’ Saturday!!!! Every week there will be a new card posted showing a new technique or a new product from the 2016-2017 Stampin Up and the Spring Occasions catalogs. These cards are super fun and you can learn how to make them and many others in one of the many classes offered!!!
This card is made with the Special Reason stamp set & Stylish Stems framelits and the Gexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder.

First I stamped the flower images and then I went over them with the Watercolor Pencils. Using the aqua tainer to blend the colors get just the right amount of depth to the flowers and the leaves. A bit of Gold Metallic Wire & the card is complete.

Hooray!!! 

Sale-A-Bration stamp set + Ink + imagination = beautiful cards!!! I’m absolutely loving this color combination of Pool Party, Island Indigo and Soft Suede. The Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Watermelon Wonder combination is just as gorgeous!!

20170307_105630_wm.jpg
Here’s card number one. The metallic silver ribbon & black wire added as embellishments bring in the “wow” factor.

20170306_111448_wm.jpg
This color combination is masculine in nature, but I couldn’t resist adding a ribbon. The silver ribbon adds just the right touch & by stamping the greeting, cutting it out and popping it up on dimensionals takes this card to the next level.

20170307_105411_wm.jpg
And here we have different combination of colors… Daffodil Delight Calypso Coral and Watermelon Wonder. The ribbon I used on this card and the previous card was also a Sale-A-Bration item….the metallic ribbon combo pack.

20170305_111546_wm.jpg
Here is a stepped-up version of the same card. It has one more layer of cardstock and I stamped the word hooray in Calypso Coral and fussy cut it out. I then use some dimensionals to raise it up, before adding it to the front of the card.

Chocolate Chip theme

For the 4th card this week featuring the Avant Garden Stamp Set, (I shared 2 cards on Sunday & 1 yesterday & 1 today) I picked the other flower in the stamp set. It is a more “realistic” image then the whimsical flower.

20170304_140915_wm.jpg

In case you didn’t notice, I used Chocolate Chip card stock as my layering piece on a couple of the cards. I did this on purpose. You may not have every color card stock BUT using one layering piece and changing up the other colors makes each card unique! I’m going to see about making a couple more cards with the Chocolate chip cardstock & the Avant Garden Stamp Set so you can see just how unique the cards are by using this technique.

20170308_082145.jpg
I looked through my Carried Away Designer Series Paper (also a Sale-a-bration (SAB) item) and as soon as I saw this pattern, I knew Watermelon Wonder was the color choice. I used 2 different ribbons to add yet another texture to the card. The new Layering Oval Framelits are a FAVORITE staple in my supplies! They work so well with many of our stamps. I used my Stampin’ Up! Markers to color the flowers in Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder. The leaves and stem are in Old Olive. Markers are an easy way to color in the detailed image. The pearls added to the center of the flowers brought something extra to the card…don’t you think?

Sweet Sugarplum & chocolate Chip

Have Sale-a-bration stamps…must USE Sale-a-bration stamps!  The Avant Garden, part of the Sale-a-Bration 2017 promotion, is such a pretty stamp set!

20170304_124829_wm

Like a lot of my creations, the first thing I grabbed after deciding on the stamp, was ribbon…my Sweet Sugar Plum Ruched Ribbon (InColor from the 2016 collection.)

20170307_084200

Next, I paired it with Chocolate Chip.  I could of easily picked Early Espresso but I felt that color was too dark.  I am happy with my choice!  To create the flower, I stamped the flower on Whisper White card stock and added the stem and leaves in Old Olive.  Cut the flower and place it the Chocolate Chip Paper.  I then added an extra flower and leaf to give some dimension.  The oval framelits were a nice touch for the saying in the stamp set.  The background stamp is also from the set!  Isn’t it great!  It is hard to see but I did add Wink of Stella to the flower that is popped up with dimensionals.

The NAILED IT Stamp Set & BUILD IT Framelits go together like a hot cup of coffee & a banana nut muffin! I am absolutely living this combo!!!

20170303_141946.jpg

Glossy White cardstock is the perfect background to create this watercolor wash!!! You can use one color, as I did here, or multiple colors for your background. The amazing thing is each time you do this it will look different! Using White Embossing powder brings or the details in the hammers. I know this is a masculine card, but I couldn’t resist some ribbon & a little bling too!
