Merry & Bright July

Merry & Bright Samples

I guess Stampin’ Up! heard all of us whining about not having the Holiday Catalog until September this year. Read on to see what they gave us to get our holiday planning started with.  It’s going to be a Merry & Bright July after all!

The first set (and my favorite) from the holiday selection is a crystal clear, photopolymer set called Christmas Bliss (#138897).  Yay!  Love that it’s crystal clear for perfect placement without additional tools.

Christmas Bliss Stamp Set #138897

The second set, Beauty of the Season (#135779) is perfect for everyone that likes to color their images with Blendabilities, Blender Pens, Stampin’ Write Markers and such.

There’s another set available to demonstrator’s only.  A sort of Sneak Peek for us to work with. Another perk for being a Stampin’ Up! Hobby or Career Demonstrator.  This is one of my favorite perks. I love being able to say, “Neener, neener, look what I have.”  Ok, maybe I’ve just shown you a side of me that isn’t exactly becoming (as Mom would say).

All kidding aside, think about becoming a Stampin’ Up Hobby or Career Demonstrator with the rest of the Wild West Crafters bunch.  We’re also part of the Stampin’ Pretty Pals and in case you didn’t know, being part of both groups comes with a ton of perks.  So, if I’ve peaked your interest, send me an email (rae@wildwestpaperarts.com) and we’ll have a chat.  I’ll put some coffee on the campfire …. cowboy coffee that is.

If you’d like to check it out on your own, click here.  Then, when you’re ready to sign up, follow these steps.

  1. Click “Join Stampin’ Up!” at the bottom of the page.
  2. Click “Demonstrator Directory”
  3. Search for Rae Burnet in Nevada
  4. Follow the instructions and Voila!  You’ll become one of the Wild West Crafters bunch!

Have a Merry & Bright July!

Happy Bloomin’ Birthday!

Happy Bloomin' Birthday

PPA211 Color ChallengeWelcome to another color challenge from Pals Paper Arts!  The trio of colors this week are some tried and true primary colors.  The remind me of the ocean and the sun.  Great choice for a nautical themed project.  But let’s get wild and go completely different direction.  I say let’s have a Happy Bloomin’ Birthday.

For some reason I’ve been on a mini card or tag kick.  Could it be because I got caught short-handed and had to purchase some tags?  No, not me.  Um hmm.  My name is on the Paper Crafter’s Wall of Shame now.

When the Scalloped Tag Topper (#133324) punch came out I really didn’t think it was a necessary tool.  However, there were some really cute party favors popping up that just had to be tried so I caved.  Boy oh boy am I glad I did.  This tool makes short work of projects when you find yourself faced with the wall of shame!

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Item #133324

The other thing I realized this year was the lack of floral stamps in my tack room. When the opportunity came up to earn the Bloomin’ with Hope Hostess Set, it was mine!  It’s a fantastic set with a wide variety of uses.  More on this set on last week’s color challenge post.  Click here to read it.

No special techniques were used.  Just stamp in Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy ink then go over some of the lines with coordinating Stampin’ Write Markers.  The little background dots were done using the small tip of the Night of Navy marker.  The tag really came to life with the addition of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (#133751) adhered with the 2-way Glue Pen (#100425).

That’s about it for this project.  Make a bunch.  You never know when you’ll need to send a Happy Bloomin’ Birthday greeting. Besides, you don’t want your picture plastered on the Paper Crafters Wall of Shame like me.  However, I do like visitors.

New Hues Review

2014julhop_badgeWelcome to the July Pals Blog Hop. This month we are featuring a New Hues Review. Let the new Stampin’ Up! In Colors for 2014-16 inspire you – Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, and Tangelo Twist.  We hope you find great inspiration from our creations.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Lisa Ann Bernard at Queen B Creations, Stop #27 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

blackberry pie

What does Blackberry Pie have to do with a New Hues Review?  Everything when my favorite new hue is Blackberry Bliss!  That and inspiration from some old friends and fellow pie lovers.  You know who you are!

BLACKBERRY FLOWER SHOP

The flowers were created with a water color technique using both Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey Classic Ink. The centers were created with Hello Honey 3/8″ Satin Stitched Ribbon (#133671).

Hello Honey 3/8" Satin Stitched Ribbon by Stampin' Up!

Hello Honey 3/8″ Satin Stitched Ribbon Item #133671

I love these two colors together and the ribbon is fantastic.  It’s easy to work with and stays tied.

BLACKBERRY FLOWER SHOP  CLOSE UP

A few tips for these flowers:

  • Start with “line art” image like these from Flower Shop (#130942 Clear Mount; #130939 Wood Mount)
  • Emboss the image on Water Color Paper (#122959) with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109133)
  • Wet the paper inside the embossed lines with Aqua Painter (#103954)
  • Using the Aqua Painter, pick up small amounts of ink from the lid of Black Berry Bliss ink pad (#133642) and touch it to the wet area of the image where you want the color to be darkest. The color will run to other areas of the image without crossing the lines.  Follow up with Hello Honey ink pad (#133643).  Let dry.
  • Use Stampin’ Write 2014-2016 In-Color Markers (#133654) in matching colors to detail areas or leave alone.
  • Optional:  Use the coordinating Pansy Punch (#130698) for a clean, crisp cut.

Here’s a sample using Hello Honey as the primary color with Blackberry Bliss highlights.

When My Mind Wanders

PPA210 Bloomin' EvolutionPPA210 Basic Gray Lost Lagoon Pool PartyPart of creating the perfect card or piece of art is knowing when to stop.  But when my mind wanders you never know what will happen.  This wandering creation was my entry for Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge PPA210.

At first glance, this color pallet wanted to jump onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Since there seems to be an abundance of white in the Wild West these days (at least on on the blog) I decided to get a little earthy.  That and I just happened to pick up a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that was cut and scored for a card.

Here’s how it all started.  Just a quick hit with a couple of stamps from Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set in Basic Gray Classic Ink.  Hmm… not too bad for a simple card.

PPA210-simple stamping

Next, Blender Pens took a dip into Pool Party and colored the petals from the middle out. Then Lost Lagoon got in on the fun.  Sure hope they weren’t skinny dipping.  The icing on the cake was little dots and dashes with a White Signo Pen.  Perfect!

ppa210-with color

But wait, there’s more!

PPA210 DotsA little dot here, a little dot there and look what happened.  I think Pool Party and Lost Lagoon were splashing a little too much. Let’s straighten them out with a few lines of scoring.

PPA210 Bloomin' Evolution

Whew!  We’re done.  See what happens when you open up the pool to just any idea?

Lesson:  Don’t be afraid to play with pens.  Be it Blendabilities, Stampin’ Write Markers, Blender Pens or a White Signo Pen, the possibilities are endless!  When my mind wanders it can be a good thing.  How about yours?  Come out to play with Pals Paper Arts.  A new Color Challenge starts this Thursday.

I can’t let you go until I show you the fantastic stamp set used to create this little gem.

Bloom with Hope #133952

Bloom with Hope #133952

Bloom with Hope (#133952) is an 11 piece stamp set that can only be gotten with Hostess Benefits. If you were able to purchase Bloom with Hope, it would cost between $27.95 and $37.95 depending on clear or wood mount options.  When you use your Hostess Credits with a qualifying order or party, it only costs $17 for Clear Mount or $23 for Wood Mount.  Come back on Thursday to see another creation with this set for the next Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.  This set will have a lot of miles on it when it retires.

Sending Good Thoughts

Banner Greetings Gift Bag

Sometimes a regular old envelope just won’t do.  Sending good thoughts are extra special when sealed up in a gift bag adorned with just the right flower and phrase.  Wouldn’t you love to receive a card all wrapped up like this?  With the right supplies and tools, it’s a snap.

Start with some cute Chevron or Polka Dot Gift Bags.

Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags

Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags Item #131370

Polka Dot Tag A Bag Gift Bags by Stampin' Up!

Polka Dot Tag A Bag Gift Bags Item #135503

Decorate with a Tea Lace Doily (#129399), a few banners, some Thick Baker’s Twine (#135638) and a great sentiment from Perfect Pennants (Item #133230). Top it off with a cute handmade paper flower.

Blossom Punch Flower

The flower looks more difficult than it is.  Since learning how easy these blossoms are to create they’ve been sprouting up all over the Wild West Tack Room. This crumpled, vintage looking flower is perfect for a Wild West project.  You’ll need:

Lullaby DSP Item #133695

Lullaby DSP Item #133695

Blossom Punch #125603

Blossom Punch Item #125603

Of course you’ll need a note card to place inside the bag.  This one was whipped up using My Digital Studio. By changing to opacity of the image you can give a simple piece of paper a beautiful background that’s light enough to write over. I’ll be using this image over and over.

Sending Good Thoughts InsideIf you like this project, you can get the tutorial free by signing up for the VIP list before Tuesday, July 15, 2014. The tutorial and complete supply list will be part of the Wild West Gazette Mid-month edition.

Don’t forget to like Wild West Paper Arts on Facebook to stay up on important announcements, events and inspiration you may not find here.

It’s Rodeo Time!

It's Rodeo Time!PPA209 It’s Rodeo Time!  Time to Kick Up Yer Heels and play with Pals Paper Arts for Sketch Challenge PPA209.  This great sketch was put together by Nicole Watt.  Thank you Nicole!

I’ve been cravin’ dust and dirt, livestock and latigo all year and it’s finally here.  The week when the tough are still hangin’ around in hopes for that big pay day.  The Reno Rodeo ends this Saturday and its been lively!

Which brings me to today’s card. Some hardwood, distressing and a little watercolor make this project reflect the grit of the rodeo. A few pearls placed in just the right spot give it a touch of class.  Back in the day my style was denim, pearls and of course a good pair of boots.

The Bootiful Occasions Stamp Set is a favorite in the Wild West Tack room.  As I said before, I just love a good pair of boots.  Pair the cowboy boot with the Hardwood Background Stamp and you have a perfect match.

You’ve Got Me

You've Got Me Happy Monday!  I know, I know, what’s so great about a Monday?  I guess it would depend on where you are in life.  Retired?  A day you can get errands done while others rush off to work.  Working?  A fresh start.  The list goes on.  When my husband and I were caught up in hectic careers I would jot down a quick little note to tuck in his lunch on Mondays. Just another way to say “You’ve Got Me”.  Did the other guys tease him?  No!  They were jealous. Those little notes weren’t as cute and colorful as this tag but they were cherished just the same.

Most of the time we think of using tags for gifts.  However, when you need a quick thought to brighten someone’s day, tags can really come to the rescue.  With a few punches, a stamp set and some Washi Tape, tags come together lickity split.

Washi Tape Epic Day #131269Punches really speed things up! Especially the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (Item #133324). Some customers have asked, “Why buy a punch that seems limited?”  To that I say, “Convenience and time.”  What’s your time worth?

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Item #133324

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Item #133324

Lastly, you’ve got me at coordinating stamp sets and punches. The new Something to Say Stamp Set (Item #134180) coordinates with the cuter than cute Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (Item #133787).  The set is sweet alone.  Add the punch pack and it’s magnifique!

Starburst Thank You PPA2086-19Sketch208

 

Welcome to Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge PPA208 and a Starburst Thank You.  Let’s also say a big hello to the official start of Summer even though it’s felt like summer for a while now.

When this sketch came up the chevron pattern from Lullaby Designer Series Paper (Item #133695)  popped into my noggin.  The biggest decision was which chevron color scheme to use. Coastal Cabana or Crisp Cantaloupe? Decisions, Decisions.

Lullaby DSP #1336995

Lullaby DSP #1336995 Click for larger view.

The Cantaloupe Crisp combination won due to the fact that blues tend to grace Wild West blog posts more often than pinks.  After all, it is a challenge, right?
