Technique Tuesday: Bubble Wrap

I have a fun and easy technique to show you today.  I used the Bubble Wrap technique on these cards. The flower was cut out using Swirly Scribbles Thinlit and Melon Mambo and Old Olive card stock.  Used bubble wrap on Old Olive ink to create background.



This card was also made with bubble wrap and Old Olive and Pool Party Ink.  I used the new in-color Dapper Denim card stock and ribbon for accent colors.



Cut a strip of bubble wrap and place over ink pad and light tap down.  Remove the bubble wrap and lay on your card stock and gently tap down...  the more pressure you use, the darker the ink color.

Ode to Mossy Meadow In Color

Mossy Meadow is one of the in colors on their way out with the new Stampin' Up! catalog coming. So I couldn't resist using my Mossy Meadow Designer Series paper pack scraps to make this patchwork card.


The greeting is from Cottage Greetings stamp set and the flower is from the Flower Shop stamp set.  Mossy Meadow ink and DSP paper pack.

Stampin With Scraps: Swirly Scribbles in Emerald Envy

Can you tell how I made the Emerald Envy panel below?



I had to cut out a bunch of leaves for a swap using the leaf from the Swirly Scribbles die cut.  I don't like to waste any paper so I cut out the leaves in all kinds of direction.  I was left with the negative strip.  The piece of Emerald Envy card stock looked too pretty to throw away.

Congrats Masculine Style: Lovely As a Tree

Sharing a card I made for a co-worker.  Lovely as a tree is perfect for that masculine style we some times need.  I stamped the trees in black ink and then sponged the bottom of the trees using Old Olive ink pad and the top of the trees with Marina Mist ink pad.

Washi Tape Wednesday: 2 Hearts Are Better Than 1

I recently made some cards with a big heart cut out and didn't know what to do with the leftover heart pieces.  So I ran one heart through the Heart Embossing Folder and covered the other heart with washi tape and pulled this card together.

More Samples from May Stampin Class

More projects from my May Stampin Class...




Wisteria Wonder 4" x 4" square card.  I wanted to make this card in a small square version and wasn't sure I could find an envelope.  So I made my own envelope using the Envelope Punch Board...quick and simple when you follow the measurements on the board.
