All the Good Things Bonsai

Bonsai

I really like the bonsai image found in the stamp set All the Good Things.

It's really easy to ink up and stamp using the Stamparatus.

Ink and stamp in stages using different colors for the different parts.

I placed my Whisper White card front in the Stamparatus, then positioned the bonsai stamp where I wanted it on the paper.  I closed the hinged plate, picking up the stamp.

I first inked the leaves using Pear Pizzazz ink direct from the ink pad.  I stamped and repeated using the Stamparatus a couple of times making sure I got a good stamped image.

Then, I added Mossy Meadow ink by coloring the image in select places using my Stampin' Write Marker.  I stamped using the Stamparatus a couple of times making sure I got a good stamped image.

Next, came the trunk which I colored in using my Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker.  I colored and stamped a couple of times using the Stamparatus, making sure I got a good stamped image.

Next is the pot which I colored in using my Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Write Marker.  Yep, you guessed it, I colored and stamped a couple of times using the Stamparatus.

The dirt inside the pot was colored using my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker.

I removed the bonsai image and then placed the greeting on the Stamparatus.  I inked it up using my Mossy Meadow ink pad and stamped a couple of times to get a good stamped image.

A strip of Floral Romance Designer Series Paper was added to the side of my Mossy Meadow card base.  The stamped image was matted to a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock and popped up on the card base to complete.

Wavy All the Good Things

Graceful Glass Blends

I really like the stamp set All the Good Things.  It's been in my collection for awhile, but

This was a fairly easy card to create with the help of the Stamparatus.

Here's how:

  1. Cut a piece of Pool Party card stock for the card front. Punch a hole in the center using a circle punch or the Big Shot and a circle framelit die.
  2. Cut a piece  of Graceful Glass Vellum Designer Series Paper.  Color in the design using Light Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, and Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends.  You can color the front side like I did or the back.  Coloring the back side will leave you with more subtle colors.
  3.  Attach the vellum DSP to a   Whisper White card base using SNAIL Adhesive.
  4. Stamp the fish using the Stamparatus on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock.  For the first fish, I placed the stamp rubber side down onto my card stock that was placed into the Stamparatus.  I closed the hinged plate, picking up the stamp.  I inked the fish using Pacific Point ink and stamped.  I repeated this step 2 more times making sure I had a good stamped image.  Then, I dabbed Night of Navy ink over parts of the stamp and stamped.  I repeated this step 2 more times making sure I had good ink coverage to add texture and depth to the fish.
  5.  The steps for the second fish were the same except I used Pool Party ink first, then added Gorgeous Grape ink.  Fussy cut fish out using a pair of scissors.
  6. Stamp the greeting in Night of Navy ink using the Stamparatus for placement.  Sponge Gorgeous Grape ink along the edges.  Attach card front to the card base, placing the circle over the vellum dsp.  Use  Dimensionals to pop it up.
  7. Add the fish using SNAIL Adhesive.  Add enamel dots to complete.

All the Good Things Brusho Background

Brusho fish

Since I had my Brusho Crystal Colors out after creating these cards HERE, I decided to make an abstract water background and combine it with the small koi fish image found in All the Good Things.

I knew I wanted it to be a birthday card, so I used the greeting from Detailed with Love.

I simply sprinkled Brilliant Blue Brusho Crystals onto my Whisper White card front, then lightly spritzed with water, activating the crystals.

After letting the paper dry for a few minutes, I stamped the greeting in Night of Navy ink using my Stamparatus.

I kept the card front in the Stamparatus, then positioned the fish image where I wanted it.  The first fish was stamped in Gorgeous Grape.  I inked and stamped it using the Stamparatus several times to get deep colors. 

I cleaned the stamp and then placed it in another position on the card front.  The second fish was stamped in Calypso Coral.

I repeated the steps using Granny Apple Green and Night of Navy inks.

Somewhere along the way, I got a few smudges of Granny Apple Green, but I liked it, so I wasn't too worried about it!

I mounted the card front to a Night of Navy card base and added some blue Glimmer Dots from my stash to complete.
