The Creative Flow Blog Hop -Shaun The Sheep Punch Art

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – The Creative Flow Blog Hop -Shaun The Sheep Punch Art

the-creative-flow-header

Thank you for joining us on our Creative Flow Blog Hop. Each month we are set a challenge to creatively stretch our imaginations. The products we have used are all available in the current Annual and/or seasonal Stampin’ Up!® catalogues. To hop along, please use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping.

Hello hello! This is our very first The Creative Flow Blog Hop, and I’m really excited to be a part of it. Today’s theme was a quite a stumper. We’ve been set a challenge to create a ‘animal’ project using Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies. Yes, I know!?!? How is that even possible!!!😀 But hey, with a little bit of imagination everything is possible!🙂

anna-stampin-cave-shaun-the-sheep-bah-humbug-christmas-card-punch-art-stampin-up

Because not everyone of us had these dies, our lovely Jerim has sent some of us (including me) a foam die-cuts so we could actually use them as a stamps! How cool! Thank you, Jerim, you are a ⭐

So I’ve spent some time looking at these shapes and…nothing sparked! Typical, right? And then one day: Eureka!!! I saw a sheep😉 But not just normal, ordinary sheep. I saw Shaun the Sheep, how wicked is that 😜 Yet I had to figure out how to bring him to life, not literally of course😉 After few attempts and different combinations I knew exactly which shapes will become Shaun the Sheep. At this point I wasn’t sure yet what occasion for this card would be.

First, for tummy, ‘curls’ and tail, I stamped one of the large pinecones twice, using Smoky Slate Ink Pad. I stamp-it-off twice for lighter shade. To create ‘curls’ for my Shaun the Sheep I cut off the bottom of one of the pinecones. I used what’s left to hand cut his little tail. For the head I stamped smallest pinecone using Basic Black Archival Ink Pad. To create legs, rams and ears I’ve used larger mistletoe branch. I stamped it three times, also in Basic Black Archival Ink and cut them apart. For his eyes I punched two 3/16″ circles from Whisper white cardstock using Crop-a-Dile, and two Basic Black tiny circles using Owl Builder Punch. When I had all my pieces ready I assembled my Shaun the Sheep using liquid glue. To make his eyes ‘pop’ I added Fine-Tip Glue to them. I also used Fine-Tip Glue Pen to create his nostrils.

So now, when I had my sheep created I had to decide what kind of card/sentiment I want to make. And I have to tell you my mind went blank. I only knew it have to be something fun. And while looking for some fun ‘sheepy’ sentiment (if it’s even a word lol) I came across this christmassy sentiment: ‘Bah humbug’ or even ‘Baa humbug’ haha. Yes! That was it! Let it be a Christmas (kinda) card then.

I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock that measures 4″ x 5-6/8″ and stamped a wreath using following colours: Pear Pizzaz and Wild Wasabi for fir branches, Mint Macaron for mistletoe and Cajun Craze for twigs. Mint Macaron and Cajun craze has been stamped off. Sentiment is stamped at the bottom of my panel using Labeler Alphabet stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink.

I die-cut two ovals: one from vellum using largest of the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, and second one from Whisper White cardstock using the largest Oval Stitched Die. I assembled them using dimensionals and adhered Shaun the Sheep on top. I adhered my panel to the Cajun Craze card base.

For the final touch I took three White Perfect Accents, paint them in black using nail polish (couldn’t find my sharpie doh) and added them to the card. I think it really finished the look of the card. I like how this card turned out. It’s quirky and fun. I hope you like it too. Please let me know in the comments below. I would love to hear from you.

…And The Greatest Of These Is Love – Embossed Impression Technique

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave -…And The Greatest Of These Is Love – Embossed Impression Technique

Hello and welcome! Tonight I was hoping to take a part in the International Visual Blog Hop organised by lovely Australian Demonstrator, Kylie Bertucci. The  theme of this blog hop is LOVE.

Sadly, because of some technical issues, I wasn’t able to join it *cry*. But because I have a card ready I decided to post it anyway. After all this is all the point why I make cards: to share them with YOU!

I only find out about this blog hop yesterday. But when I saw the theme LOVE, I knew straight away I wanted to use beautiful Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies. I’ve made various cards using this die in the past, but this time I wanted to try something new: an Embossed Impression Technique. This is very easy, yet effective technique. And great way to stretch your dies too.

stampin-up-embossing-stamping-with-bloomin-heart-thinlits-dies

I’ve used Stampin’ Up! White Shimmery cardstock for this technique, as I planned to do a bit of water colouring later on. I prepared my Big Shot sandwich: Big Shot on Tab 1 -> Cutting Plate -> Sillicon {embossing) mat -> cardstock (I swiped the cardstock with embossing buddy). Next, I tapped Versamark over the cutting edge of the die very gently, and placed the die, cutting edge down, on my cardstock. Remember, once it’s on the paper don’t move it or you will mess up your image. I then carefully placed the second cutting plate over the top and run it through the big shot.

Because I put Versamark Ink on the die, now I had that ink in all the ‘valleys’ of the impression I just made. So I sprinkled Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder over it and heat embossed it.

stampin-up-embossing-stamping-with-bloomin-heart-thinlits-dies

I love those tiny gold lines! Next, I made few watercolour washes over my piece, using Mint Macaron ink pad and Pool Party reinker. Once dry, I cut my panel to 3-7/8″x 4-3/8″.

I also die cut five flowers, two large and three small, from Whisper White cardstock (I probably should have used Shimmery White cardstock for them too), and adhered them to my piece with glue dots. I’ve added some soft Mint Macaron watercolour wash to the flowers to add some depth to them

stampin-up-embossing-stamping-with-bloomin-heart-thinlits-dies

My card base is Very Vanilla. I stamped ‘Love’ in Mint Macaron using Brushwork Alphabet stamp set. I adhered my embossed panel with liquid glue to a piece of Mint Macaron mat (4″x 4-1/2″), and add them both to the card base with dimensionals.

To finish off my card I’ve added some shimmer to the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and put a rhinestone in each flower center.

I hope you like my card, and that you give this technique a try. What’s even sweeter: Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies are now on discount! Yep! For one week only, during Online Extravaganza you can get yours at as low as £15.40! Check the links below.
