Creative Inking “Color My World” Blog Hop

ccbh-image

 

Hello Friends,

Thank you for joining us for the February Blog Hop of the Creative Inking team- a wonderful group of all Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. These ladies are just fabulous… be sure to click “Hop this way to the Next Blog” icon at the bottom of this post, and then on all the other blog posts- you will be amazed at the talent in this group!! A few of our regular members are off this month, but we have 8 amazing blogs for you to check out, and hopefully find some inspiration!

When I first saw the theme “Color My World”, I instantly thought of our new watercolor pencils! I absolutely LOVE them! In fact- they have proven to be more popular than Stampin’ Up! predicted, as they’ve flown off the shelves. So, in case you don’t have the pencils, I wanted to also show you some simple water-coloring with our inks.

First up is a birthday card I made for my dear dad:

The base is made with tempting turquoise card stock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″). I used silver foil specialty 12″x 12″ paper cut down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and embossed it in the new hexagon textured impressions embossing folder (tip: only use 1 cutting pad as this is a super thick folder). I used a strip of Party Animal Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the sentiments are from Big On Birthdays (page 6 from the Occasions Catalog).  I used the hammer from the “Nailed It” bundle on page 48 of the Occasions Catalog (you have to LOVE coordinating dies!) on watercolor paper with the watercolor pencils and aqua painter. Dad loved his card! (I had a big family dinner last night to celebrate my dad).

Next up, this trio I made with the Tuscan Vineyard set from page 95 of the Annual Catalog:

This card was water colored with the watercolor pencils on very vanilla card stock. The accent colors are old olive and rich razzleberry.

This card (and the next one) were made with our crumb cake note cards and I colored very lightly with elegant eggplant ink, the stamping was done in crumb cake and elegant eggplant.

This one is my favorite from my little trio, I water-colored with garden green and elegant eggplant ink. The “thanks” is from Cottage Greetings. These were fun and simple to color and put together. Great to make up a bunch and have on hand for thank you card when you need them!

I hope my post inspired you to try some water-coloring! I would love to hear from you, I treasure your comments! Thanks.

Stampin Friends February Blog Hop!

Hello Stampin friends and welcome to our February Blog Hop! Also, Welcome to our February Guest Hoppers:
Bibiana Cameron
Maria Willis
Lana Staab

If you found me by way of Kathie’s blog, many thanks (if you need to head back to her blog, just click “previous”)

When I heard the theme was “Black, White and Whatever You’d Like” (another Color that is) I wanted to showcase some of my favorite new Stampin’ Up! products, and one is hot off the press! For this blog hop we always create a card and a 3D item. A few years ago Becky Roberts (Inking Idaho) had shared some gifts she made with the wooden cases by adding a kitchen drawer pull handle. Then I made some for one of my bingo nights last year. Then my upline sent me this empty one from a recent event she had. I decided to repurpose this one to use for my “Watercoloring To Go Kit”. You see, I love to watercolor with our new watercoloring pencils, and I thought it would be great to showcase this idea (what a great get well gift for someone in the hospital or rehab, right?)

Anyway, I wanted to stick with the theme “Black, White and whatever you like”… so I picked the accent color Bermuda Bay. With our brand new addition to Sale-a-bration on 2/21 of this gorgeous glimmer paper- I thought you’d like to see it in action- what do you think of my dragonflies??

The wooden case has a protective cover so you can easily slip your creation inside… (didn’t realize how much glitter dust lingered on the scene after I slipped it inside, oops).

As you can see, the new watercoloring pencils, one aqua painter, one blender pen, and a small pencil sharpener as well as several card bases/images fit comfortably inside!


What a handy carrying case for watercoloring! (Also, the watercoloring pencils have been much more popular than Stampin’ Up! predicted, so they are only available while supplies last (they were turned off for a few weeks, but we did get another shipment). They are true Stampin’ Up! colors and I LOVE them!!

 

When I give this as a gift, I would put the dragonflies inside an envelope and add some glue dots, so they could first watercolor, then accent with the dragonflies when the cards are complete.

Here is the glimmer paper- three gorgeous colors: Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, and Sweet Sugarplum (this is a pack of 6″x6″ glimmer paper, you get 4 each of these three colors).

Here is the flyer with all of the new Sale-a-bration items that Stampin’ Up! is adding as of February 21st! I predict this glimmer paper is going to fly off the shelves, it is yummy!!

(Demonstrators only can “preorder” these new items, otherwise they go live on Tuesday February 21st).

 

Well, what do you think of my post today? I love to read your comments, they mean a lot to me! My supply list is at the bottom of this post if you need to order anything to make these handy cases yourself!

Way to Go Day!! 

 

Today was my very first team rewards get together, once each quarter I am inviting my top 4 downline over for a fun get together! For the first quarter of the 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! year (October-December 2016) I had four ladies who earned points for this special invitation. Amye, Lisa, Sharon, and Kim were invited over for breakfast and a stamping get together today. (unfortunately Kim got sick and couldn’t make it). 

I made a bacon egg and cheese quiche and also a seafood mozzarella quiche, fruit salad, mini bagels and muffins, and had OJ and sparkling pear juice. 

Then we got to work creating a beautiful vertical succulent wall hanging.

Amye had shared a photo of a vertical garden made a few years ago by a demonstrator named Rachel, with old Stampin’ Up! product. I updated it with our current ‘oh so succulent bundle’,  some Spanish moss and the detailed dragonfly thinlits. 


Here is a close-up of the dragonfly, we used three markers: pool party, rich razzleberry, and cucumber crush to color the dragonfly, deluted it with an aqua painter, and then when it was dry applied wink of Stella across the top. I use the solid image to just cut out a dragonfly with our vellum card stock to layer underneath the detailed die cut out. 

Here is a photo of just putting the hens and chickens (as I like to call them)…. the succulents were made with always artichoke card stock and sponged with rich razzleberry ink. 

The small flowers were made with the petite petal punch and a pansy punch using sweet sugarplum card stock, and I distressed it with rich razzleberry ink. 

Here are the girls with their creations:


Lisa with her creation!


Here’s Sharon with hers!


Amye’s creation!

The frames are an 8 x 10″ distressed frame, I used very vanilla card stock over the glass, and hot glued the Spanish moss directly onto the card stock. 

The girls and I had a lovely time this morning and I’m so glad that I finally took the leap to plan this new reward for my team. They are doing such an awesome job and I am so proud of each one of them! This quarterly WTG day is on top of our monthly Stampin’ Up! get together at my house. We sure have a lot of fun, laughs, stamping, swapping, and eating too!

I would love to welcome you to my Lynnzcrafter team, have you been thinking about it? This is the best month of the year to join with all of our specials, I’d be happy to talk to you more about it! And three brand-new items are being released for SAB! 

Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog today, and have a great night!

Lynn
