All the good things

Exams are just around the corner for a lot of students, my son included.  Here's a card I made featuring the Stampin' Up! All The Good things stamp set which has a sentiment that is perfect for students as they do need perseverance & courage to successfully get through.  It also features the new distINKtive stamp design.  The All The Good Things stamp set can also be used for other occasions too.

So what is a distINKtive stamp? It's a style of stamp made by Stampin' Up! that adds monochromatic dimension to your stamped image - something you used to have to do using several stamp steps.  So with one fish stamp and some inks I was able to get a varied look in just one pass.

Here's a close up of the distINKtive fish from the set.

Pretty in pink

When I think of Spring, I think of weddings and blooming flowers.   I made this card featuring the very pretty Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper - just change the sentiment and it could easily be a wedding, birthday or all occasions card instead of an Anniversary card.

SU Petal Promenade card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla card base layered with some Petal Pink cardstock which had been embossed with the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I then cut down a piece of the Delightfully Detailed Lasercut Designer Series Paper and layered it over the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and added it to the card base.  The sentiment was stamped using the Detailed With Love stamp set and layered onto the card.  A bow using the Tea Room ribbon completed the card.

Starting my Christmas cards

I was demonstrating cardmaking today at my local shopping centre and thought I'd make a start on my Christmas cards.

This card was inspired by a recent Stampin' Up! publication and features the lovely Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set and co-ordinating thinlits bundle, along with the Cherry Cobbler and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends all available from my online store. Have you started making your Christmas cards as yet?

The Stampin' Blends make colouring images so easy. I run introductory classes on how to use the Stampin' Blends which are an alcohol marker, so if you'd like to learn more, please let me know.

Healing hugs triple step card

I've always liked how quick and easy it is to do the triple step aka triple time card.  Here's one that features the Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs stamp set which is a distINKtive style of stamp.

So what is a distINKtive stamp? It's a style of stamp made by Stampin' Up! that adds monochromatic dimension to your stamped image - something you used to have to do using several stamp steps.  So with one floral stamp and a set of rose leaves from the Healing Hugs stamp set I was able to get a varied look on both in just one pass.

Oak tree brushos card

The Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree stamp set is a classic set which doesn't date.  I thought I'd use it along with the Brusho colour crystals to create this card.

SU Lovely As A Tree card by Angela Lovel, AngelasPaperArts.blogspot.com.au

I used the oak leaf in the set to randomly stamp over the card base.  The focal image was stamped in StazOn black ink and then watercoloured using the Brusho crystals and an Aqua Painter.  The sentiment is stamped onto an excess piece of the Brusho watercoloured paper before being adhered onto the card.  It's a very simple card, but the Brusho colour really 'pops' off the card.
