Stamp Set Showcase Week 3 (2)

Day two of this weeks Stamp Set Showcase


And today I have coupled the stamp set with two one other

I Like You 

So why did I combine another stamp set? ... well it is made to use with Blendabilities. 

And what are blendabilities? Well they are Stampin Up's version of Alcohol pens/Copic Markers. They come in packs of three pens,  that are three shades of a stampin up colour, allowing for perfect colour blending.

Today I am using the Old Olivefor the leaves  plus Calypso Coral for the flowers

Begin by making your card blank. To do this, trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 14.8cm x 21cms. Score the long side at 10.5cms, fold and burnish. 
Trim another piece of Whisper White cardstock to 14.3cms x 10cms.
Stamp this piece with the I like You stamps using black Memento ink pad (if you use Stazon it will cause bleeding of the colour outside of the stamped image).
On a separate scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp a couple of the smaller I like You stamps, again using Memento ink pad.

Now comes the fun bit. There is no real right or wrong was to use the pens, but this is how I do it,
Begin by using the lightest shade of green in the Old Olive pack and using the brush tip, colour in the leaves. Then use a little of the medioum shade to highlight areas of shading on the leaves, and finally, small areas of the Dark shade to give the final detaailing. I then get the lightest shade of pen again, and colour over the leaf images. This will help blend the colour. Now use this same process with the flowers. Gave fun with it!
Don't freak out when you see the colour bleeding through to the back of the cardstock, this is normal. IF the colours get too saturated, just leave the cardstock for a few minutes to let it dry.

Once you have finished colouring, shading and blending, Tie a piece of ribbon in the colour of your choice (I have used Pear Pizzaz here) around the painted cardstock, tie a bow. Embellish with some basic Rhinestones. Cut out the flowers you coloured onto scraps of cardstock, apply stampin dimensionals on the back. Next stamp your sentiment stamp. I used Mossy Meadow ink here for  added contrast. Punch out the sentiment using the Artisan Label Punch. Punch two more Labels from Mossy Meadow cardstock. Cut one in half on the vertical and the other on the horizontal. Glue the matching pieces to the reverse of the stamped label to create a narrow frame for the sentiment. Apply Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse side of the label. Mount the painted cardstock onto the card blank using Stampin Dimensionals for added depth.
Finally, adhere your sentiment label to the card.

To help you on your way I have included here a Stampin up YOUTube Tutorial on Blendabilities  (see below) ... so no excuse for not sharing your card makes with us!! We look forward to seeing them.
Happy Stamping
