Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop for October: Black, White, & One Color

Our theme this month is Black, White, & One Other Color.

I choose gold as my other color and this is what I came up with this month. 

I had a hard time with this one because I love me some color but when I saw these dies I thought this would work. I am happy how it turned out. Hope you are too. 

It is hard to see in the photos but the bottom two layers are pushed up with dimensional dots and the Merry Christmas is embossed with gold powder. I was going to do white but the gold looked better except in the pictures. 

I love the embossing paste that Stampin' Up is now carrying. You can do so much with it. 

Supplies Used:
Paper: Gold Foil, Merry Little Christmas DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Versa Mark, Whisper White Ink Refill
Dies: Hometown Greetings, Card Front Builders
Stamps: Star of Light
Embossing Powder: Gold
Embossing Paste

Fall Leaves

Another fall card with the Baby Wipe Technique. When you do this technique you want to make several cards at one time.
I also love backgrounds but sometimes they are time consuming. This one was pretty easy. Stampin' Up ink blends very nicely on glossy paper. 

Covering the glossy paper with ink makes it more friendly with the Polymer Stamps.

Supply List:
Paper: Glossy White, Crushed Curry
Inks: Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Early Espresso
Ink Refills: Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze
Stamps: Colorful Season

Baby Wipe Technique & Washi Tape

The baby wipe technique is tricky on white glossy paper especially with polymer stamps. Polymer stamps tend to stick to the glossy paper tearing it or the ink smears but the paper sure makes it look good. 

I love this washi tape from the holiday catalog. Check it out on my website. It blends so well with the fall theme. 

Supplies Used:
Paper: Glossy White, Crush Curry, So Saffron
Ink Refill: Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze
Washi Tape: Year of Cheer Specialty
Ink: Early Espresso
Stamps: Colorful Season

Thinking of You- Using the Baby Wipe Technique

I finally got to try the baby wipe technique. I made several cards using this technique. Here is one. I am also going to use this one for my first workshop, can't wait.

I love fall and all the colors. I also love the Colorful Season Stamp set, you can do so much with it.

Supplies Use:
Paper: Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler, White Glossy 
Ink Refill: Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler
Ribbon: Burlap
Stamps: Colorful Season
Ink: Early Espresso
Die set: Bunch of Banners
Baby Wipes

Glitter and More Glitter

I love the music DSP paper in the new Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog because I love to use music stuff for lots of things but especially Christmas. The only thing I thought the paper needed was a little bling.

I first cut the paper to the size I wanted to include the music I wanted. I then used a square die to cut out the center. 

I then covered the paper with Versamark Ink. Need to make sure all of it is covered.

Covered the paper with Iridescent Ice Embossing powder making sure completely covered. Shook off excess. Then heated with heat tool.

The embossing powder gives the paper a glitter shine making it a little darker then the original paper. Also some of the back is showing through giving it some more detail

Popped the champagne foil/music paper with foam tape. I love this card but the pictures don't do it justice. 

Supplies Used: 
Paper: Real red - 5x5.75, Champagne Foil 4 7/8 x 5 5/8, Merry Music DSP 4 3/8x5 3/8, Garden Green, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Real Red, Versamark
Glitter Pen: Wink of Stella
Embossing Powder: Iridescent Ice
Punch: Holly Berry Builder
Dies: Framelit Square Collection
Foam Tape
