SU Hooray It’s Your Day

SU Sea Street

March 24, 2015

I am a little late to the game with this Stampin’ Up stamp set… Sea Street. I have seen it around especially when it first came out. And, of course, I had to have the DSP right away but never ordered the stamp! So, I finally ordered the stamp and just love it!

I don’t know if it is the colors, the Maritime Designer Series Paper, the Pals Paper Arts Sketch # 244 or the super cute images but this card just makes me happy! I hope it makes someone else happy some day when he receives it:)

Here’s the sketch:

I used my Signo Uni-ball White gel pen to accentuate some of the “white” spaces that got a little filled in because of my juicy Coastal Cabana ink pad:)

I used a simple sentiment from SU Hooray It’s Your Day stamp set, and scattered a few Coastal Cabana In Color 2013-15 sequins.

I can’t wait to play with that flag border and that rope is too cool!

SU Hooray It’s Your Day- Bokeh Technique

March 9, 2015

It’s Monday…so I checked out the Mojo Monday Sketch # 388 for this week.

The sketch fit in well with one of the Bokeh Techniques (blurred effect with photography) that I shared with my friends at The BEEHIVE Team meeting over the weekend.

 I saw Deb Valder do this technique with SU Night of Navy ink sponged over a Whisper White cardstock base. She then sponged on SU White Craft ink circles and the new Color Box Chalk inks that are in the Occasions catalog.

I was in a purple mood so I used Elegant Eggplant as my sponged Bokeh background on an Elegant Eggplant card. I then die cut various sized circles out of a piece of acetate to create a template. I randomly sponged SU White Craft ink over the Elegant Eggplant sponged base. Warning: my white dauber did pick up some purple as I sponged! I also used my heat gun to set the white craft ink before I finished the Bokeh effect with daubered circles of Color Box Aquamarine, Rose Coral, and Yellow Citrus Chalk ink.

For the Mojo Monday Sketch #388, I added in a Crushed Curry star from the SU Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, two white Candy Dots, some SAB ribbon, and the cute little star and sentiment in the SU Hooray It’s Your Day stamp set.

The stamp set is photopolymer so it made stamping the inside sentiment so easy!

The SU Hooray It’s Your Day is a fun set to have for little kid cards- Birthday Boy, Birthday Girl, and Look who’s turning…whatever number you want!
