Colouring stamped images - August 2018 Art With Heart Monthly Blog Hop

Aug Hop

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring stamp sets that you can colour in. We hope our blog hop inspires you to pick up some Stampin’ Write Markers, Watercolour Pencils, Stampin Blends or another form of colouring medium and colour in with your stamps. Don’t forget to contact any of the ladies on the blog hop to order any products, especially they limited edition colour your season products.

I have featured another Christmas card, as I just can't get enough of colouring the Christmas baubles with the Stampin' Blends. I have been going a bit crazy with colouring using the Blends lately, as I just love the depth of colour I am getting and the ease of the blending, They are great alcohol markers, and having them to coordinate with my Stampin' Up! colours is just a bonus.

The base card is Granny Apple Green,  vibrant green that debuted this year in the Colour Revamp. Here re the Stampin' Blends Colours I have used to colour the bauble from Beautiful Baubles stamp set (coming on September 5th with the 2018 Holiday Catalogue):

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You and Lemon Lime Twist with Embossing Paste

It was a grey drizzly day in Melbourne today (it's late winter here), so I needed a bright card to show you. 

I think this one works! I find myself coming back often to use this happy image from the Beautiful You stamp set. It's applicable to so many different cards  I think, but especially congratulations cards.

My colour combination is Lemon Lime Twist and Pacific Point. I added some texture to the Lemon Lime Twist layer by using some embossing paste coloured with Lemon Lime Twist re-inker, and then used the diamond mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. My image is coloured using the watercolour pencils. I used a greeting for the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set which fits beautifully in the Classic Label Punch.

Using the Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste

I tried out the new embossing paste from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue last weekend. There are 3 key products in this range:

The masks can be used for spongeing, but in this case when combined with the Embossing Paste and smoothed over with the Palette Knives, you get a lovely raised effect which adds dimension and texture to your papercraft projects. It's super simple to use (just make sure you have a plastic mat) and I was surprised how quickly it dried. I use my Silicone Craft Sheet to create colours by adding a drop or two of re-inker to 3/4 - 1 teaspoon of Embossing Paste (that usually covers a couple of cards. I use the Palette Knives to mix on the Silcone Craft Sheet. There's a video at the end of the post which shows how this is done.

Here's a closer look at the four mask patterns you get in the Party Patterns Decorative masks pack.

Here's two of the cards I made. For this one I have used 2 drops of Powder Pink ink refill in about 1 teaspoon of embossing paste, and then sprinkled some gold glitter randomly over the top (while the embossing paste was still wet) and shook off the excess.

My stamp set is Happy Birthday Gorgeous which is a new set 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I love the funky font on this set and it has so many other great greetings. The paper is Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.

For this second card I have used the cloud mask and 1 drop of Soft Sky re-inker in about 3/4 teaspoon of Embossing Paste. I love the effect this gives for clouds. I have used the Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits to complete my card. This is a nice colour combination to use with the new InColour Powder Pink.
