CTC 134 – No Bones About It Babies and Kids

Welcome to the next CTC blog hop, where this week we CASE (Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit) from the ‘babies and kids’ section of the Annual Catalogue.

Today I am CASEing the project on page 109 of the catalogue using the No Bones About It Stamp set.  Just the stamp set you need for any dinosaur lover – which just happens to be my nephew who needed a birthday card 🙂

 I love the card on the right hand side.  If I don’t have a piece of designer paper that suits my needs then I just pick a stamp set and create my own.

Have you ever tried it?  It really is a lot of fun and makes it quick and easy to complete a set of cards all at once.

Simply choose the colours and imagery you want, then set to work randomly stamping the images on an A4 piece of whisper white card stock.  Cut it up to create four card fronts! It really is that easy.  Here is what I created this week…

CTC 134 - No Bones About It for babies and kids by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis. Use any set from Stampin' Up!s range to create your very own designer series paper backgrounds.

This first card has just a couple of extra elements like the background coordinating colour behind the sentiment, as well as a couple of fussy cut leaves and a dinosaur on dimensionals for a bit of extra fun!

My second card uses the same background, but has a different feel when the extra elements and the background colours are changed…

CTC 134 - No Bones About It for babies and kids by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis. Use any set from Stampin' Up!s range to create your very own designer series paper backgrounds.

So from one sheet of whisper white, I was able to make these four cards of two different designs.  You could change it up even more and have a different colour background for all four.

One sheet – four cards, 2 designs.  It’s that simple!

Pop on over to see my you tube video HERE on how I created this background paper and others :-)

Try it with any stamp set at all.  Baby, flowers, insects, artsy…whatever you desire!

Magical Mermaid Shaker Card

Hi Everyone.

 

I couldn’t resist popping back so quickly to share another of my Magical Mermaid cards. I told you I LOVED this set! This time I decided to create a shaker card in purple and pink hues.

Magical Mermaid Shaker Card

The base of this card was created during my Sunday Night Live Video on Facebook, where I demonstrated how to create the same background on my mermaid card in the recent CASEing the Catty blog hop.  You can see that one HERE.

I told everyone that I would finish off the card in these ‘New’ colours and show you all.

Well, here it is!

Magical Mermaid Shaker Card by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis, Stampin' Up!, Watercolour backgrounds with video link

This one has so many of our gorgeous new products. The colours are 3 of our new In Colour Range – Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig. And our New Iridescent Sequin Assortment suited this shaker card perfectly.

The Mermaid’s beautiful glossy tail is again achieved by first watercoloring the image and gradually building and blending layers, before coating the whole thing with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  It gives of such a glossy smooth finish – and no sticky feel AT ALL! Definitely one to add to your tool kit!

For some added bling I popped on a couple of our New Glitter Enamel Dots!

Take a look at my Video HERE to see just how easy these beautiful watercolour backgrounds are to create!

Shaving Foam Technique

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m back to share my Stamp it Sunday Facebook Live video on how to create brilliant background using the Shaving Foam Technique!

It’s so simple, so messy and so fun! And just take a look at the stunning backgrounds you can create.  The skies the limits with hundreds of potential colour combinations!

Here is my favourite so far!

Shaving Foam Technique by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis using Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set by Stampin Up

My boys actually choose these colours – My youngest said his favourites are Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo, then they choose some of the new Powder Pink!  It matched the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set beautifully.  I was lucky enough to win this at the demonstrator On Stage event! I was one very happy girl!  This one was created with a lovely friend and downline in mind and it has already been sent to it’s new home!

Shaving Foam Technique by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis using Daisy Delight from Stampin Up

These two were created using Wisteria Wonder, Flirty Flamingo and our new Lemon Lime Twist reinkers!  Teamed with our Daisy Delight bundle to create some lovely Gerber’s.  You can highlight different colours from your batch of shaving foam.  These two still need sentiments which I will save until the right occasion arises!

Shaving Foam Technique by Mel Pagano from My paper Oasis using Scenic Sayings from Stampin Up

Great for smaller card with big bold sentiments…

Or use the patterned card to create your embellishments!

So many variations! I encourage you to try it!

You will need:

-shaving cream (cheapest one will do)

-something to squirt your shaving cream in to (I used a plastic plate)

-reinkers in colours of choice

-something to swirl your colours

-something to scrape the foam (i used an old iTunes card)

-whisper white cardstock

Take a look at my You Tube Video to see exactly how it is done over at My Paper Oasis.

And then go get messy and have some fun.

Lining Up your Delicate Details Stamps

Hi Everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you my Stamp it Sunday Live video creation, where I gave a couple of tips and tricks for creating this weeks card.

In my video, I explained exactly how to Line Up your Delicate Details Stamps to achieve a lovely straight and consistent result when stamping multiple rows of them!  I also snuck in how to create a rectangle using our Stitched Shape Framelits!  A video full of goodness just for you!

Here’s the card we created using those beautiful, intricate, lacy delicate details stamps!

Lining Up your Delicate Details Stamps and creating stitched shape rectangles by My Paper Oasis, Stampin' Up!, heat embossing, sponging

You may remember the Gold Version I created for a CASEing the Catty challenge a while back – you can see it HERE – well this one was similar, but i went for a white embossed background before sponging some of our current In Colours over the heat embossing.  The great thing about sponging is, you can create as such or as little depth of colour as you desire!
