Stamp of Approval: The Perfect Reason – Release Day

The Perfect Reason Collection - Stamp of Approval

It’s release day over at Catherine Pooler Designs! Stamp of Approval – The Perfect Reason Collection is now available to the public! Yup – you’ve probably already hopped along on our three day Blog Hop – if not, I have links for you at the end.

We had a Midnight Release PJ Party last night over on StampNation – boy was that fun. Many of the Design Team members jumped on live to create (including me!) with the collection, there was tons of chat, a newly released challenge and just an overall fun time.

Stamp of Approval

I have a few more projects for you today! I thought I’d channel my inner DT Clean and Simple gurus – Maureen Merritt and Kristie Goulet. These gals have clean and simple down, and I always just smile at all their creations. So this one is for you Maureen and Kristie!

White space is the key to Clean & Simple design – evident in these three projects:

Project One: CAS Pop

You can always pop up a panel like this and stamp under and on top – easily match them up for a cool look. This card uses the Perfect Reason & the You Did It stamp sets.

Perfect Reason Stamp Set

Project Two: CAS Mod

Complimentary colors (from the color wheel) are the name of the game for the project above and below. I’m in love with these combinations. You can not go wrong if you stick to complimentary colors (opposites on the color wheel). This project uses the Everyday Mod & You Did It stamp sets – I’m in LOVE with the Everyday Mod set – it has great geometric shapes and greetings.

Project Three: Midnight Paisleys

And finally – I thought I’d show you one of the three projects I made last night at our Midnight Release Party. Details on the card are over at StampNation here. That was such a great time – to be online with 1000+ of our closest sistahs from StampNation was FUN!

Paisley Peacock Stamp Set

I stamped the black outlines for the paisleys, and they told me what colors to use. I cut my panel down and my other card is over at StampNation, along with my version of a case of DT Member Melissa Miller’s Blog Hop card here.

PLUS, the StampNation weekly challenge was released during the party too – here’s a peek at what I created for it – inspired by the challenge mood board. SO much fun.

Don’t you just love these shapes?!! And I LOVE little stamps like the teeny circle stamps – look at the Rockin Red ones – love that little detail in the middle. The greeting on this card is from the Everyday Mod stamp set.

Project Three: Stained Glass Blessing

If you’ve ever stopped by my blog, taken a class with me or seen one of my tutorials on YouTube – you KNOW I’m a stencil girl. And I LOVE to watercolor with vibrant colors – hello – Catherine Pooler Designs inks!!

I took all that goodness and wanted to make the Mod Squared Stencil shine – literally.

Josephs Coat Technique

Aren’t these colors just fabulous? We have a little stained Glass Josephs Coat Technique action going on here. Isn’t it amazing how the Midnight just transforms this piece into something really special?

My goal was to have my earth colors at the bottom going skyward to a celestial heaven. I hope that translates! The greetings are from the Everyday Mod Stamp Set.

Kylie’s 12 Days of Christmas Card Challenge – Day Seven

There are two things I’m grateful for this year – my online friends and a good ole Christmas Card Challenge. Okay there are lots of other things too, but today is about a sweet friend of mine – Kylie Purtell and her 12 Days of Christmas Card Challenge with friends.

12-days-of-christmas-graphic

I’ve had a wonderful last few years participating in many online card challenges – most of them Christmas! Yes, I’m a sucker for Christmas. And I normally have my own 12 Days of Christmas Series myself…but between a move from Europe back to the USA (we’re settling in the Raleigh, North Carolina) area, and purchasing a new home unexpectedly – my November/December got turned upside down – please forgive me!

So I was elated when Kylie asked me to participate in her 12 Days of Christmas with Friends Challenge. And I encourage you to enter too – pick any inspiration from any day….today is Day 7 – and just jump on in. The prizes are from three of my favorite stamp stores – all small businesses owned by amazing women.

To Salute these three creative women – Kylie, Shery & Christine, I thought it would be fun to put together a little Christmas fun using products from all three – from where else…my hotel room…lol!

ingrid-blackburn-candy-cane-holly-001

I went for a little rustic look with some toned down colors here.

  • To create it you’ll want to sponge a little Festive Berries through the ARTplorations by STAMPlorations Merry Go Round Stencil  – keep it light to have it look effortless.
  • Next sponge around the perimeter with a little Tea Dye Distress Ink lightly and add a few lines and dots to the corners with an Early Espresso Distress Marker.
  • Next Stamp the Holly & Berry images from the Christmas Joy stamp set by Happy Little Stampers in Black Archival Ink on Kraft colored card stock.

ingrid-blackburn-candy-cane-holly-002

  • Color in your images using Zig Clean Color Markers and cut out leaving a little edge to allow the images to pop.
  • Once your background is fully dry (I zapped mine with a Heat Tool), test it to see if any embossing powder sticks, and then stamp the gorgeous Christmas greeting in Versamark ink from the Christmas Surprise stamp set by Create a Smile Stamps.
  • Emboss it in Silver powder and stamp the coordinating greeting onto a little strip of Kraft in Black. Adhere to your background and edge with an Early Espresso Distress Marker.
  • Edge the greeting a bit with the same Early Espresso Distress Marker – keeping it uniform – mine is slightly to the right and underside of the letters. This helped to pop the image off the busy background.
  • Add your panel to a folded piece of Olive card stock and there you have it! My card front measures 5 1/2 x 4″.

ingrid-blackburn-candy-cane-holly-001

Don’t you just love how the background looks like little peppermint candies…I love all these elements, and these three companies are some of my favorites – I’ve spent my fare share at each this past year – just don’t tell Michael! 😉

And for another fun little card for some inspiration…I kept it Clean and Simple using Kylies super cute newest Christmas set – Christmas Joy. I’m in love with the little trees in it and the sentiments. Be sure to stop by the Happy Little Stampers video channel this week for lots of Christmas inspiration too…

ingrid-blackburn-cas-tree-002

I used Strathmore Bristol paper for a super smooth finish that works effortlessly with Zig Clean Color Markers. If you have these awesome watercolor markers – you NEED this paper! Lower quality papers just don’t get the same blend.

  • Use several shades of green to blend the perfect tree after stamping it in Archival Ink (Ranger), and a few browns for the trunk.
  • Add a light shadow underneath the tree in a warm grey for a simple shadow which grounds your tree for a realistic look.
  • Use a MISTI stamp tool to position your greeting, then ink up the Christmas in Red, stamp…clean and repeat using black on the bottom. It was so easy to do. I used Catherine Pooler’s new ink pads – Polka Dot Red and Midnight Black.

ingrid-blackburn-cas-tree-003

  • Originally I thought a one layer card would be perfect…but the little Olive borders added so much – I just HAD to trim it and layer.

It’s cute though, right? I just love these little trees – seriously…I can’t stamp enough with them!

So now it’s up to you! Enter the challenge to win gift certificates from Happy Little Stampers, STAMPlorations and Create a Smile! If not just to enter to finish off those cards – and if you’re done…start on next year!

Embossing on Christmas Cards

Today I have a Christmas card for you that would make a wonderful mass produced card. The theme over at the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge this month is embossing – and this card is loaded with embossed pieces.

hls-christmas-challenge-october-2016

I”m using my favorite new wreath and stamped embellishments by Wonderful Wreath by Catherine Pooler Designs. And let me tell you, with the matching die cuts it’s SUPER easy to get nice cut out pieces – love that!

christmas-embossing-ingrid-blackburn-hls

First stamp & emboss the wreath in a few greens. I inked it up in Versamark, then Peeled Paint, Forest Moss & Evergreen Bough Distress inks. Then just emboss in clear and you have your own custom embossed color! Pretty awesome, right? I’ve been doing this technique for years – that way you don’t need to buy all those colors that you’ll only use once – use what you have!

christmas-embossing-ingrid-blackburn-003

Emboss your berries the same way, using Barn Door. Next, emboss the birds and scripty greeting from this set in Gilded Gold by Brutus Monroe – my go to gold. TIP – Keep in mind that the Gilded Gold looks so much like a foil – it’s a true metallic. Because of it’s metallic properties, it embosses in a flash, literally. If you do over emboss it, it will start to bubble – and that happens quick. I just LOVE this embossing powder.

The Wishing you….Holiday Season is stamped in Early Espresso by Stampin Up and is the only non-embossed image on here!

christmas-embossing-ingrid-blackburn-002

The finish off your card, pop up the wreath and add a few sequins. I think one of the things I love about this project is that it’s just 1/2 a sheet of card stock folded – and it’s a naturals type card stock with neutral flecks. The neutral quality adds to the card a bit – of course bright white would be great too!

Now it’s your turn to check out what the Design Team has done and join in on all the fun for this month’s Christmas Challenge. I KNOW you emboss!

Till next time –

CAS – Embossing on Vellum

cas-embossing-on-vellum-ingrid-blackburn-hls

Chances are if you love to emboss, you’ve tried embossing on vellum before. Embossing really gets a pop when laid on top of the slick vellum surface. Today I’m playing along with the Clean and Simple challenge over at Happy Little Stampers. And the technique is yup, you guessed it –  embossing on vellum.

oct-2016-cas-badge

Embossing on Vellum Tutorial

Clean and simple cards need a focal point. This project uses embossing on vellum not just to highlight the focal point, but to soften a busy background as well. To bring more attention to that focal point, emboss a golden twig wreath around.

Embossing on Vellum - DIY Christmas Cards

The focal point. One of the brilliant properties of vellum is that it is translucent. So I took a busy stamped off Peppermint Stick background in green and placed it behind my vellum window. With the golden twigs – it really worked.

But the card needed a tiny bit more. The clean and simple look was what I was after, so I didn’t want to clutter it up too much. I ended up choosing to add some golden holly leaves & berries in the corner.

Embossing on Vellum Technique

All the little touches seem to pull it together. The vellum cuts down the strong stamped background just the right amount….now it adds something rather than dominating. The golden accents added to the card, without pulling your eye from the dominant focal point – just what you’re looking for in clean and simple design.

When working on your clean and simple cards – don’t be afraid to stray from a white card. White space – which is what CAS design needs doesn’t literally mean white!

Now it’s your turn – head on over to Happy Little Stampers and join in the Embossing on Vellum Challenge fun!

Till next time –

World Card Making Day Blog Hop

Hello World! Today is World Card Making Day, and what better way to kick off the day than with the Hello World Blog Hop with 22 designers all coming together for one purpose – to inspire you by creating cards using a brand new special stamp & die set designed for a great cause! The best part is that we have a little giving back going on this entire week. AND…guess what – you can participate too!

helloword-bloghop-1-1

My good friend Catherine Pooler, Founder of StampNation – a world wide community of crafters & Catherine Pooler Designs, has been wanting to give back from her business for a while now. But there are so many great organizations and causes – where do you start?

Well, one day this past August, one of her crafty friends (who happens to be a rockin’ stamp designer – that would be Chaitali Narla) contacted her to come together and do a little good in the world. The very next day Catherine saw another crafty friend, Jennifer Ingle,  post about a little cause she and her husband Sean were trying to raise funds for….and the idea for Hello World was born!

Sean Ingle teaches Civics & Government, Geography and Debate to kids in grades 6-8 in the Boston area. Their school does not have the funds for computers, a computer lab or in a library. So these kids, who don’t have computers at home either (they are all on a free or reduced lunch program), don’t get to learn the way most kids do today. Let’s be honest – most kids are exposed to computers from a very young age. Can you imagine not having that exposure for basic life skills as a young teen?

Sean’s goals are to raise enough money to have Chrome notebooks for the classroom so two students can share and get the exposure they need in the classroom setting. Wouldn’t it be great if we could raise enough so that all students had one?!!

So Catherine and the team at Catherine Pooler Designs put their heads together and came up with the stamp set Hello World. Chaitali’s favorite sentiment is Hello or Hi, so this set is illustrated by her, and says Hello or Hi in various languages from around the world. It has great sentiments to go along with that making it a more versatile set. All the profits from this stamp and matching die set from today October 1st through Friday October 7th will be donated to purchase Computers and other supplies in Sean’s classroom in Boston. Now that’s a worthy cause!

Here are the two sets that are giving back:

Be sure to stop by Catherine’s Blog at the beginning of the hop (link below) to get her full story, and if you’d like to donate directly to Click Here for the Go Fund me page – Chromebooks for Urban Education.

Now for a little creative inspiration using the Hello World Stamps & Dies….

Hello World Project Tutorials: 

#1 – Wordy Hello

This clean and simple card is pretty easy to put together. You’ll want to line up several of the sentiments from the Hello World Stamp set. I first lined them up with the hello, then removed it to ink and stamp it separately. I wanted to have an ombre feel to it, do I inked it up in light from the middle outward in the following colors: Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy – all by Stampin’ Up!.

For a darker result, ink up the hello in versamark first, then directly into Midnight Muse by Stampin’ Up!.  Heat set it with clear embossing powder for an added effect. Matte your card front with your darkest shade – here in Midnight Muse.

hello-world-ingrid-blackburn-word-play-001

I wanted the background to show all the fun dots from the new CP Designs stamp set YAY Stripes! For a fun look, ink up the bottom of the dotted stripe in a lighter shade, and the top in a darker one. That way when you stack them – you have dark/light contrasts in color. It helps to make it stand out a little more. I layered mine three times.

A few fun little orange hearts from the Lovely Flowers Stamp Set and some white twine up top and you’re all set!

#2 Elegant Hello

For my second project today, I wanted to do another clean and simple card, but a little elegant – enter embossing! Start out by embossing the solid stripe from YAY Stripes in Black on Black card stock. I LOVE that look!

For a complete contrast, emboss the butterfly from Butterfly Notes by Catherine Pooler Designs in Gilded Gold by Brutus Monroe. I love this butterfly – the detail on the wing and the outline are different and unique. It looks so pretty embossed – almost foiled!

hello-world-stamp-set-ingrid-blackburn-001

Continue to add some golden touches by dragging your Versamark pad along the edges of your card front and emboss in Guilded Gold. Emboss the Hello greeting from Hello World in gold on black and cut out using the Hello World dies. Adhere to your card front, put your card together and add some sequins – that’s it!

#3 Hello World Word Cluster

This last project is my favorite. I love word clusters, and this set is PERFECT for this technique. Word clusters is simply that – clusters of words. Arrange them first, then drop your acrylic block or Misti on them to secure them.

Here’s the biggest TIP to help you with word clusters – stamp them first on a piece of copy paper and keep as a guide. This way, if you mess anything up, you can easily and quickly re-assemble them and move on.

hello-world-ingrid-blackburn-word-cluster-003

To create this cluster, I removed the large hello, stamped the cluster in Soft Sky by Stampin’ Up!, added the Hello, stamped in Soft Suede, cut out with the Hello World Dies & popped it up for drama. The little word world never made my master – my master was always just the hello greetings. I stamped that in the open space after.

Matte your white card front so you have a 1/16″ border of Soft Sky on the top and bottom. Stamp the bold stripe stamp from YAY Stripes top and bottom so that you have a little peeking out. Adhere together and add a little Brown Bakers Twine up top with a bow – super simple and easy! This is a GREAT mass produced card. Just stamp all your pieces out at once and assemble factory line style.

So what did you think? I know they are easy for me, I was in a Clean and Simple mood the past few days. I have more coming this week with this stamp set, so be sure to stop back by!

Here’s the list of all 22 Hello World Designers to inspire you today. Be sure to stop by everyone’s blog. If you would like to purchase the Hello World Stamp Set & Hello World Die set, please visit the Store over at Catherine Pooler Designs. Here’s a link. Remember that all the profits from this stamp and dies set this entire week are going to fund this classroom – wouldn’t it be great if we could blast through the goal!  And if you want to directly donate, please click here.

Happy Hopping!!

World Card Making Day Weekend

It’s that time of year – World Card Making Day, and I thought this year….why not inspire you with projects all weekend long? Let’s kick it off today with a quick clean and simple card. I’m in love with angles and lines at the moment. So I thought it would be fun to get a little crooked today…

candy-cane-collection - clean and simple ingrid blackburn

This card is pretty straight forward. To duplicate it, stamp your favorite background stamp  – I used the new Peppermint Stick Background by Catherine Pooler Designs. For a muted look, use a deep red on kraft. Use the same color red for your candy canes. Now you can stamp these on white – but I thought I’d keep them deep red to symbolize love a little better.

candy-cane-love-cu

Did you know that if you criss cross facing candy canes they form a heart? Now you see it, don’t you! I layered multiple patterns, added a little holly & berries and stamped a cute sentiment. Keep it real simple – no sequins or embellishments. It helps to focus on the dies, angles and patterns.

The Perfect Christmas Tree

Are you always on the lookout for the perfect Christmas Tree? I am always striving for the perfect Christmas tree on my cards, and I think I’ve finally found it. After all, what’s more Christmas than a tree made of holly leaves and berries?

Today the Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane Collection is available to the public (while supplies last). We had three days of blog hops, and many of my fellow dream team members have been posting projects all week long. Click HERE to check mine out from a few days ago. I’ll have links to all three below.

Today everyone – including the guest designers all have another project on their blogs – so be sure to stop by all 16 blogs for more ideas! There was some serious inspiration going on, wasn’t there?

The perfect Christmas Tree - Ingrid Blackburn

Here’s a tutorial for a card that works for anyone – male or female. One of my favorite parts is the two toned embossing in the greeting.

Be sure to click the link to watch it on YouTube in High Definition. And be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you see more in the future!

The Perfect Christmas Tree Video Tutorial

Click HERE to view in HD on YouTube

To get this look, use the watercolor stamping technique. But for a slight difference, I used Distress stain rather than ink pads – at least for the leaves. The result is so cool, the photos and video just don’t do it justice. Because every leaf has its own nuances, it looks like you hand painted it – and that’s really something for a stamped image!

Watercolor Stamping the perfect Christmas tree

The greetings are from the Merry & Bright Boughs stamp set, but for an added little something, use the double holly berries to give it an added touch with pewter embossing powder. That’s a great combination with the gilded gold.

As much as you want to add sequins and something else to complete the card – with a real watercolor, I encourage you to refrain. Allow the watercolor to shine. But the project did need something – that’s where the simple border of dots and lines comes in. It adds to it without taking away from it.

I hope you love this one as much as I do. Have you tried watercolor stamping before? I think over the past week you can see I LOVE the technique. Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried it!
