Two-Tone Stamped Images for Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

blog hop banner

Ever wonder how to get two-tone stamped images? If so, you are in for a treat as today I will share how to do this in a easy way. 

But before we start, please know that this post is part of an amazing blog hop that will be featuring techniques for your to learn and use in your cardmaking! So make sure to stick around, and hop with us as we share some cool techniques.. Even better, let me know which one is your favorite! 

So lets gets started! 

Two-tone Stamped Images

This easy technique is perfect when you want to add dimension to your images, as you can have a light and dark section on your images which will give a bit of a 3D illusion to your images. 

Here are the things that you would need to have for this technique:

  • Bold image stamp, as you need to have a flat surface to apply both colors
  • Light color ink pad
  • Dark color ink pad
  • Dauber   

Below the steps to follow for the two-tone stamped images technique:

  1. Add the light color ink pad to the stamp image as you would normally do
  2. Ink a dauber with the dark color ink pad
  3. Tap the color with the dauber onto the inked stamp set – TIP: do not rub the dauber on the stamp set as this would leave marks
  4. Stamp the image onto cardstock and you are done
  5. Clean the stamp before repeating the process – This is an important step to avoid staining the light ink pad with dark ink 

Finished Projects!

As you can see in the picture, I used the two-tone stamped image technique with the Sweet as a Peach stamp set, since the peaches, leaves and flowers stamps are flat to add color as you will see in the video tutorial below.    

Three friendship cards using the You're a Peach Suite from Stampin' Up!

For the Peaches I used Calypso Coral and the Pale Papaya for the stamping technique and see how beautiful those peaches look! Don’t you agree?

The Color Combo 

As usual, I looked for inspiration in the designer series paper (DSP) a.k.a. patterned paper to get a color combination. And quite honestly, the You’re a Peach DSP is amazing as far as color! you can get so many color combos from this pack alone!

Once I got the color combo, I just selected the patterns I wanted to use which would follow these colors.. 

By the way, if you have not heard yet, there is an awesome promotion during July where selected pattern papers are at 15% discount! And the You’re a Peach DSP is part of that promotion, so if you have been looking at this paper pack, this month is perfect to add it to your collection! 

Other packs included in this promotion are listed below:

  • You’re a Peach, Sweet Symmetry, Hand-Penned, 
  • Tiding of Christmas, In Good Taste, Pansy Petals
  • Beauty of the Earth, Bloom where You’re Planted, In the Wild

Below you can see the sketches I used as well as the individual card pictures.

Additionally this suite includes a beautiful designer series paper (DSP) a.k.a. patterned paper, that coordinates beautifully with the stamp set.

By the way, I have to mention that these are three of the cards that we made in our team meeting at the beginning of June!  Every first Saturday of the month we meet as a full team to recognize all our achievers, to discuss upcoming events and promotions, to get some training if you ever are interested in getting in building the business side with Stampin’ up!, to see a stamping presentation (which are amazing) and to stamp together as a team!

I love our team meetings and every month I get pumped and inspired from all the swaps, card shares, and other tips that get shared! 

Our team is the best!

But I diverged.. 

Three Easy Cards using the You're a Peach Suite from Stampin' Up!

For my cards today I used the scalloped contours as you can see for two of the cards, which helps you make the cutest rectangle labels with different decorations in the border. Plus it also makes a cute scalloped border, which can be used in your cards to make a fun border!

You can see the cards in more detail in the pictures below.

Beautiful Birthday Cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle

Blog Hop Banner - Share it Sunday

Looking for beautiful Birthday card ideas to make? If so, today I am sharing with you birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Suite from Stampin’ Up! 

But before we start, let me tell you that this post is part of an amazing blog post! so make sure you check all the participating blogs as you will get tons of ideas and inspiration for your next crafting project!

So let’s get started! 

Introducing the Sand & Sea Suite Collection 

As you can see the Sand & Sea Suite Collection is beautiful by itself. It has a beautiful stamp set with great sentiments that can go for multiple occasions. 

But what stands out even more is that the stamp set, the die cutting and the embossing folder coordinates beautifully. I think that Stampin’ Up! did amazing with the coordination of this whole suite as everything mesh really well. 

I love that you not only can die cut the stamped images, but you can also give them dimension.  And this feature will really change your cards from a normal card to a WOW card! believe me.. You got to try it out and see for yourself how beautiful these get.

Meet the Sand & Sea Suite Collection

 

This suite also contains cute little stickers which coordinate really nice with the designer series paper, so if you are looking for a quick project this would go really fast and still make a super cute card. 

The designer series paper (DSP) has amazing patterns. One side is more of a generic pattern that not only is good for beach related cards, but other themes as wells. And the other side has a cute pattern that definitely goes well with beach theme related cards.  So if you ask me this is a DSP that you want to get, and stock on, as it goes really well with this whole suite!  

And finally, the Opal rounds are just the perfect little embellishment to compliment your cards! These look like little sea bubbles (is that even a thing? or did I just made it up? ha! 🤣), so they finish up your cards so beautifully.

Quick Reminder

One thing I am forgetting to tell is that this whole collection is part of the Jan-June Mini Catalog. Which means that some of these products will for sure retire by end the of June..

The good new is that the “Friends are like Seashells” Bundle (stamp + die set), and the Seashells 3D embossing folder made it to the new Annual Catalog as well as the Opal rounds. However, the DSP and the Stickers did not! So these will be on a while supplies last during June.. 

So don’t delay, if you like these items get them right away! 

Beautiful Birthday Cards

As I mentioned the stamp set has amazing sentiments for several occasions, however since I wanted to make three beautiful birthday cards for my friends, I only used the Birthday sentiments. 

Below you can see the Birthday Cards. What do you think? Do you like them? 

Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!

I definitely love how they turned out!  And when you see how easy these are to make, you will love them even more!  So make sure to watch the video tutorial below to catch all the tips on how to put these cards together. 

But lets talk a bit about the details in these Beautiful Birthday Cards. 

Color Combination 

As usual, I followed the color combination on the DSP to give me inspiration for the color combo to use in these cards. 

This is the simplest way to get ideas, specially if you ever think that you cannot come up with color combinations! What I love even more about this, is that I get to use color combinations that I might have never thought of! 

So give it a try! I promise you’ll surprise yourself in a good way! 

Once you select the color combo, then just pool everything you have in those colors like Cardstock, ink, markers, embellishments, etc. You will then start playing with only those things and see what you want to use for your cards.  This always helps me get my creative mojo going.. 

And I honestly find this part really relaxing. 

Birthday Cards Details  

On this section I have a just a few details to share.. But you can watch the video tutorial to see the step by step on how to make these cards. I go over all the details as well as provide measurements, So make sure you watch it.

                    Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!            Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!

For my first card, I used seashells that were stamped in the colors from the color combo, and embossed using the coordinated products in the Sand & Sea suite collection.

One thing to note is that the die set in this suite is a bit different, I use it to cut the algae, but did not use it to cut the stamped images. The images are all connected in the die set but not in the stamp set, so in my case I thought it was easier to cut the images with scissors. You can see in the video tutorial more about this.  

                    Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sea & Sand Bundle from Stampin' Up!            Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!

This second card, is very similar in the layout to the first card, however I used vellum, as well as the sentiment change, plus I embellish it with trim.. Little details link this can make your card look so much different. 

                    Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!            Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!

And for this final card, I decided to play with a new Fun Fold! This is the first card I made using this Fun Fold, and I love it.. it looks more complex that what it is, but it is actually super easy! 

So make sure you watch the video tutorial to see exactly how to do this fun fold.. I know you will love it! 

Additional Information

Beautiful Birthday cards using the Sand & Sea Bundle from Stampin' Up!   One thing you are going to notice is that I decorated all the envelopes in of my cards. 

I almost never do this, as I love mailing my cards with the clear envelopes, so that everyone can see the card itself as it travels to its final destination.  However, for this time, I thought the cards were over the top and decided that these needed a special package, and so I decorated the envelopes to coordinate with these cards.

This though, IS NOT Shown in my video tutorial below, but in my Facebook group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/CreatingwithAllie

Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

For this cards I wanted to use the True Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is one of my favorites!  The only colors included in this paper pack are Black and White, making it very versatile as it goes really well with any color!

The Color Combination 

And talking about colors, because I used the True Love DSP, it was super easy to make a color combo this time! I only needed to pick a color for my flowers and instantly I got a gorgeous color combination for my projects today!

Now you might looking a brand new color, in the color Combo, and you are right! The Polish Pink is one of brand new In-Color family that we will have between 2021-2023 when the new catalog is released!! 

Stampin’ Up! released 5 brand new colors each year and these are available for two years, but that also means that with a brand new in-color family, we also get 5 colors retiring every year.. 

But for this post I want to introduce you to the brand new 2021-2023 In-Color family! 

Introducing the NEW 2021-2023 In Color Family

Below you can see the Brand NEW color we are going to have for the next two years!  Are these not beautiful?? 

This year I just loved every single one of them! 

I think that all of these colors are going to coordinate excellent with the other family colors we have! And of course you know I love Purple, so I was EXTREMELY happy to see a purple shade in this selection! 

I was so sad to see Purple Posy retire this year, but all is better now that I have Fresh Freesia! lol.. 

And the best part of getting new new colors, is that we get a new set of brand new products that coordinate with these beautiful colors!

Below you can see how the ink pads, the markers, cardstock and ribbon coordinate beautifully..  I honestly think this is the best feature from Stampin’ Up! products.. I love how well everything color coordinates.

Sketches & Other Details 

But back to our beautiful Birthday handmade cards! (since I digressed)

If you can’t tell I am super excited with the new colors, that I couldn’t resist myself and play with at least one of these colors for my cards today! 

And as you know I love using sketches for my cards. I think that this is the easiest way to make cards and to find your creative mojo right away! 

One more thing to note is that for all the tulips I used an easy color technique, so make sure you watch the video tutorial in this post to learn how to add even more depth to your tulips, making them look even better!

Birthday Card #1

          sketches to play       Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

This first sketch has become one of my favorites and I am sure you might have noted that I have been using it more and more lately.. I just love how easy this sketch is for mixing and matching DSP.. So I have been enjoying using this sketch to use more and more of my DSP. 

Let’s be real, how much paper do you have??? If you are like me, you might have full boxes (😅 yes plural!) of patterned paper, and if that is the case, then using an sketch like this is the best to use as much as we can.. 

After all, you know you will keep buying more paper, the minute you see brand new paper being released from Stampin’ Up! next May 4th??? right?? lol 

Never in our lives would we say, I won’t buy more paper because I have enough!  So let’s use it! 

Plus when you use DSP in your cards, the whole process becomes so much easier, as you are letting the paper do the work for you! Boom! mic drop! 🤣

Birthday Card #2

                 Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

For this second card, I want to point out that I embossed the basic white cardstock in the background, as this would add so much mode texture and dimension, so consider doing this when you can plain cardstock as one of your layers.. you will see how your card looks even more professional or with a nice finished touch. 

Now did you notice that in all cards, I used a double bow? Oh my gosh! I have been liking this particular detail in cards I have been finding online! ooh and I just wanted to give it a try.. 

Don’t you think it looks even nicer? Now I know a bow is already challenging, and now two? i know.. but trust me, just have a bit of patience when you are making them.. you will see is not that bad or that hard. 

Birthday Card #3

                 Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

And for this card, I actually was inspired by a card my fellow demonstrator Antonette Bay from The Paper Papillon shared in Pinterest.. 

I was browsing thru Pinterest when I came across her card and fell in love with her layout.. She used the same stamp se, however her colors were different. If my memory doesn’t fail me, she used Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and White.  

So the sketch I am sharing today is coming from that card.  

Shifting the background papers has also become somewhat popular in my cards, as of late.. I just love how making this small change makes so much of a difference in the looks of the layers.. 

The Video Tutorial

And as usual here is the video tutorial where I share how to make these cards step by step.

On this video I also share an easy technique for adding more depth to the Tulips when you stamp them, so make sure you check that out. I also provide two other color combinations using the brand new in-colors, so you can see more looks for this tulips. 

And you can see how easy it was doing the double bows for these cards.

Make Your Own Patterned Paper With Stamps

blog hop banner

Have you ever wanted to make your own patterned paper with stamps but didn’t know how to do so? If this is your case, then you are in for a treat! As I am going to share with you my tips when making your own patterned paper with stamps!!

But before we start, this post is part of an amazing blog hop, which them is about flowers, Spring and Easter! So make sure you hop thru all the blogs participating today as you will get lots and lots of ideas for your crafting projects!!! You will love them all! 

Ok, let’s get started!! 

How to make your own Patterned Paper with Stamps

So whenever I want to make patterned paper with the stamps, I look for specific stamp sets that have images in different sizes.. This is key as you will be able to fill out the paper as you stamp it in an easier way. 

Plus having different images will allow you to have several colors in it as well, thought you could do monochromatic patterns as well. 

So in this case I decided to use the Pretty Perennials as it contains images of flowers in different sizes.

Once you know which stamp set you want to use, then it is just matter to look for color combinations so that you can see how you want to stamp the pattern in your cardstock. 

For my cards, I knew I wanted cheerful Birthday Handmade cards, so I look for a color idea using the bright color family. Below you will see the color combo!

This color combo just makes me happy!  Don’t you agree?

And after knowing which colors you want to use, then pick one color to be the main color for your cards, one as a secondary color and one for highlights.

For these cards, Poppy Parade is the main color, you can see it on the card bases and on the larger flowers. The secondary color will be Pool Party as you can see them in the embellishments and I used it as the second larger flower. And as a highlight I used the Daffodil Delight, which you can see as a filler on the patterned paper and also on the banners.  The Granny Apple Green is just a color to coordinate with the flowers.. You can also consider it as a highlight.

Tips Stamping your own Patterned Paper

Here are a few tips of things I have learned whenever I want to make my own patterned paper using stamps.. So hopefully these helps you as well.   

  1. Follow the color combo you select, as well as the priority you gave them e.g. main color, secondary color, and highlight
  2. Always start with the largest image and then go to the next size image as you stamp the whole black paper
  3. Stamp randomly across all your blank paper. TIP Do not over think the position 
  4. Stamp images where not the whole image is in the paper, that will make the pattern look more like real patterned paper. Tip – Make sure you have a scratch paper under the paper you are stamping to avoid staining your table 😉
  5. Once all the images are stamped, then add a smaller/filler image on to the areas where you see empty spaces. Usually this is the tiniest image of the stamp set. 
  6. If you still have questions about which stamp set to use, I shared a few tips on this post to help you select the stamp set for your patterned paper. 

Card Details and Sketches!

One of the things that I have not share yet on the post, but you will see in the video tutorial below is that I stamped a half of a sheet of Basic White! and for this one piece I made all three of these cards!

So make sure you watch the tutorial to see how you can cut out the paper to maximize it and get THREE cards out of one half! 

Also as you know, I followed sketches, so here are the sketches and the cards!
