Sunshine and Rainbows - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Sunshine and Rainbows by Stampin' Up! Beach theme decor - Stamping Susan Wong


Welcome to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop!! We're so excited to bring you a bunch of Sunshine and Rainbows projects this month. Not only is this such a fun stamp set but it comes with some totally awesome and versatile dies! I used the negative of the 'cloudline' die to take this set to the beach for some ombre waves in this decor 6x4" piece.

Basket of Wishes - Just Add Ink 405



Welcome to Just Add Ink 405!! It's been a long long time since I wrote a phrase like that. A BIG thank you to my old friends at Just Add Ink for having me as a Guest Designer. I'm so excited I get to join you all over the next few weeks - there's so.much.talent in this design team!

So what is this crafty gig? Simply make a project using the inspiration photo above, blog it, and link your post on the original Just Add Ink challenge *HERE*. (See Just Add Ink post for challenge rules/guidelines.)

For me this pic is all about rustic textures so here's my card using the Basket of Wishes stamp set...



Hot Tips:
- For added texture, emboss your Wood Textures designer paper with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
- If colouring with inks and your aqua painter on Very Vanilla with a classic ink outline, use a quick, light touch so you don't saturate the paper or make the ink run too much.
- For a velvet touch, scrunch and re-scrunch card stock until you're able to peel the two layers apart.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Basket of Wishes
Inks: Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz, Dapper Denim, Smoky Slate
Papers: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate
Tools/Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Linen Thread, Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes

Hot Tips:
- For the wreath card - Photopolymer stamps can be manipulated a bit to make them into the shape you want. Curve it slightly as you stick it on your block to help you create a circular wreath.
- Don't forget - with every ink pad you can have more than one tone. Stamp off before stamping on your project for a lighter shade.
- For the colour block sentiments, carefully ink up half the stamp on the edge of the Grapefruit Grove Stampin' Pad before doing the other half on the Old Olive.
