Color Poppin' with digital stamps

 Hiya friends!  I'm over on the Stamplorations blog today as a guest digital designer.  This month's trio of projects features the Sketched Cupcake & Cupcake Row digital stamp set.  I always try to do a sort of theme and this month I'm calling it "Color Poppin'."


My first project is a bright and fun bookmark.


I printed the image twice in the same size.  One image I colored with fluorescent Copic markers and the other I left uncolored.  


I cut the word "read" out of both of them.


I cut the same letters out 4 more times from plain white cardstock.  Then I stacked and glued all of the letters together.  I rounded the corners of the plain panel and added it to a piece of black cardstock slightly larger.  I also round the corners on the black panel.  Then I glued the stacked letters in place.  I added liquid glue to the bottom of the letters and sprinkled with glitter.


For the finishing touch I punched a hole through both layers and added a bright ribbon!  


For my second project I got to play with my gelli plate!


I grabbed my gelli plate, several acrylic paints, Flair slimline stencil and Bloomdalascopic #7 stencil.  I created a couple of different panels because you can't make just one when you play with gelli plates!


I printed the Sketched Cupcake out onto Copic friendly cardstock.  I added minimal color to the wrapper with some toner greys.  For the frosting I used an embossing pen to add ink and then used White Satin Pearl embossing powder.  It added such a lovely shimmer!


I picked my favorite panel and added it to a gray card base.  I added foam tape to the back of the cupcake and adhered it to the card.  I also used a Happy Birthday sticker from the Just Everyday Greetings sticker pack.  Glued on a few sequins and this beauty was finished!


My third project I think is my favorite of this group.  Don't tell my other cards!


I printed the Cupcake Row out onto white cardstock.  I grabbed the Art Splatter stencil, blending tools and a rainbow of Distress Ink pads.  I added the stencil splatters at different heights, flipped it over, shortened the drips and so on to make each splatter look different.

Then I used the same Distress Inks to add splatters.  Keeping it mostly over the same area as the stencil splatter.  I added black splatters over the entire panel.


I added it to a black panel and then onto a white slimline card base.  That's it!

Tweet slimline birdhouse

Howdy and hello!  Today's project features several new products from the latest Scappy Tails Crafts release.  Have you had a chance to check out all the great new goodies from the Home Is Where Mom Is release?  You can see them all right HERE.

Let's take a look at my project.

How fun is this??  

I cut the main house die out of a piece of light purple cardstock.  Next I used the Slimline Woodgrain die to cut a light and dark piece of purple cardstock.  I glued the light purple layer onto the main house piece and then inlaid all of the dark purple pieces.  I trimmed off the ends that hung over at the top.  I used a dark purple ink and a blender brush to go around all the edges of the house panel.


Next I took the large heart and the letter dies from the Birdhouse die set.  I lined them up on the front of the house panel.  I ran the whole thing through my die cut machine and removed the cut pieces.  On the back side of the house panel I glued some gray cardstock just behind the letters.  I also cut the roof piece out of the same gray cardstock two times.  One piece I adhered straight to the panel.  The second piece I used a texture embossing folder on it to give it some, well, texture.  I added bits of foam tape only on parts of the back before adhering it over the piece on the house panel.  I rubbed my teflon folder over it so the cardstock would bend a little between the pieces of foam tape.  


Next I added silver splatters.  I also used the same silver to lightly paint the roof piece.


I cut another light purple panel using the main house die.  This will be the back.  I grabbed a stencil from my stash and applied purple ink with a blending brush.  This way it won't just be plain when you look through the heart shaped hole.


I set the panels aside and stamped out several elements from the Oopsy Daisy set and the Spring Birds set.  I used a Copic markers to color them all.  I scoured the internet for pictures of yellow birds.  I used a yellow Finch and a yellow Oriole as my inspiration.


I also can't stop using the adorable bees from Oopsy Daisy!  I added tiny touches of Unicorn Stickles to the bee wings and the flower centers.  

I cut the tweet word die out of gray cardstock 3 times and once out of metallic silver cardstock.  I glued all of the layers together.  I then played around with the placement of everything until I was happy with how it looked.  I cut two side panels out of the same purple cardstock and got to building!




I just love the Slimline Birdhouse Pop Up die!  It's so unique!

We've made it to the end of my post and I hope you found something you can't live without! ;-)Don't forget you can use the code STCBLOG10 for 10% off your order.

See you soon!
