Paper Pumpkin – Wish Big

July 30th, 2014 by craftdoc

The July Paper Pumpkin kit was great fun.  I brought my kit to a family reunion.

Today’s Tips:

-Make a stencil out of the WISH letter backing sticker sheet.  Cut out the strip.  Attach a piece of clear window sheet to top and bottom.  Pat the backing with the embossing buddy so it is no longer sticky.  Sponge ink through the stencil letters, or at the bottom to make a border.

-Use the Epic Alphabet stamp set to make your “wish” or other words.

-You can subscribe to Paper Pumpkin HERE and use promo code HALFOFF2 to get it for just $10 delivered right to your house.  If I get 2 more new subscribers today (July 30th)  I win a bonus and will send a gift to you!

Stampin’ Up! Bright & Beautiful

July 26th, 2014 by craftdoc

Here’s a sneak peek of a new stamp set in the Holiday Catalog – Bright & Beautiful.  Stampin’ Up! has really outdone themselves with this catalog.  And there will be a special in August on this (and some other) framelit bundles for the Big Shot.  So stop by my store on August 1.  If you are my customer and want your own copy of the Holiday Catalog, use the contact button to your right before July 31.  I will be ordering them that morning.

Don’t forget, the Paper Pumpkin promo is still ongoing – HERE use Promo Code HALFOFF2 to get your $10 kit (direct shipping is included!) for new subscribers.  I saw the next 2 kits and they are awesome.  You don’t want to miss out on these exclusive kits.  They are great to take traveling, make with friends, or boredom busters with the kids.

Today’s Tips:

-Lay the larger framelit for centering purposes on the Whisper White panel and stamp the smaller star.  Then add both framelits and run through the Big Shot.  Adhere the pieces with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This will be a class card for my August Classes.  There is also a coordinating stamp set in the Annual Catalog called Be the Star that you can use with the same layout.

Stampin’ Up! Display Board

July 25th, 2014 by craftdoc

I posted earlier some of my samples from the display board I was asked to make at the #InspireCreateShare2014 Stampin’ Up! Convention.  Here is how the entire board looked when we were finished.  You can click on the photo to see it larger.  To see more of the display boards, visit my facebook page StampinKimWilson. Stampers to Remember is the name of my team and I’d love to have you join us.  Contact me for more information or visit my demo website kwstamps.stampinup.net.

Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities

July 23rd, 2014 by craftdoc

At Stamp Class yesterday, I shared what I learned at the Stampin’ Up! Convention about the new Blendabilities alcohol markers.  I gave them all some prestamped images to practice with and some Back to Black Designer Series Paper (on sale in July).  I didn’t have time to make my usual samples, so the cards turned out all different.  I enjoyed seeing all their creativity.   Thanks for being good sports Joanne, Anita, Maggie, Jackie, Vicki, Patti and Priscila!

Today’s Tips -

-use Memento (Tuxedo Black) ink and Whisper White Cardstock for best results.

-keep caps on tightly, use silicone pad if they are hard to remove, line up on the table and click shut to avoid damaging tips.

-It doesn’t matter if you go light to dark or dark to light.  Use circular motions to blend the colors.  Work in small sections to keep the color wet and moveable.  Go back afterwards and add more layers for even more shading.  You can even shade with just one color – just keep adding more to areas you want darker.

-For faces try a  bit of blush highlight to the cheeks, then blend with ivory, covering the entire face.  If you want to use one of the darker colors tones, just add some bits here and there, and then quickly blend with a lighter color.  Otherwise it will be too dark.

-Use the color lifter to push color back over the line or into some scrap paper under your cardstock.

-The color lifter can also lighten sections.  Leave a white space and use the color lifter to blend in just a touch of color.

- Shade or simply color the Back to Black Designer Series Paper – awesome!
