Color INKspiration Challenge #9!

A few weeks ago I participated in a Color INKspiration Challenge by using the following colors:




Right away I knew I wanted to do some watercoloring. I used the "Coloring with the Lines Technique" and also added in some shading:




The Remarkable You stamp set was so perfect for what I had in mind. For this technique, you stamp the images in the same ink color you want to color with. Once the images are stamped, you grab the color from the lines of the image and color with a Blender Pen. You can see in the close-up below that I grabbed the Pool Party Ink from the flowers and added some shading. Once my flowers were colored the way I wanted, I colored them again using Clear Wink Of Stella:





I then dipped my Blender Pen into the Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad and added some shading around the outside of the flowers. You only need to dip a tiny bit into the ink pad to spread the color as subtle as you can.

Thailand Achievers June Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for June 2017. This month our theme is "Annual Catalog Favorites". As demonstrators, we are all in love with the new Stampin' Up! Catalog and want to give you some inspiration so you can use your new products or want to order more!






You may just be starting the blog hop here with my blog, Debbie Henderson of Debbie's Designs, or you may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup at the bottom of my post will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. So of course one of my favorites is the Daisy Suite of products:





The Daisy Suite includes:
  • Daisy Delight stamp set
  • Daisy Punch
  • Delightful Daisy Designer Paper
It's really a difficult decision to NOT order all 3 products. They all work so well together. Let's start with my card:




I doubled-up my daisies and I even have one that is folded in half. When folding in half, you have to stamp on both sides of the flower to capture the stamped detail. I love how the White Perfect Accents look in the center of each doily. So perfect!






I also created a coordinating gift tag using the same cardstocks, inks and designer paper. The top of the tag was cut with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch which I was pleased to see continue in our new catalog:




I hope you enjoyed both of my coordinating projects. All of the blog participants are listed below. Make sure you visit all of us to be totally inspired!

June Control Freaks Blog Hop Using Seasonal Layers!

Good Evening and welcome to the June Control Freaks Blog Hop. We have lots of inspiration in store for you using new products from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. Have fun on the blog tour!




You may be starting the tour with my blog but if you arrived here from my fabulous teammate Cindy Elam's blog, how awesome were her projects huh? If you keep reading, I'll direct you to the next person in the hop at the end of my post.


I decided to do up some coordinating projects tonight using the Seasonal Layers stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. All four of my projects are identical but use different colors. Don't you just love that adorable lawn chair? That's where my inspiration came from. I grabbed the chair die and kept going from there. The new Color Theory Designer Paper Stack was perfect for what I had in mind:




I used all 4 of the colors in the paper stack which are Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Berry Burst and Dapper Denim. All papers were cut using the Mini Treat Bags Thinlits Dies. I added a tag, a die-cut lawn chair, a piece from the Delicate White Doilies and tied the tag at the top with Whisper White Sheer Ribbon:



I created a pull-out section that slides in and out with a cute little tab at the top. The Circle Tab Punch was perfect for the tab. I folded it in half over the top and secured it in place with a stapler. The Envelope Punch Board was used to create the two rounded corners at the bottom!

I will now direct you to Melissa Stout's blog. She is next in line and I just know you'll love her projects as much as I will. Enjoy!

Merry Monday Challenge #253!

Hey Blog Readers, how was your weekend? Isn't the month of June just flying by? We have a new challenge at Merry Monday this week. Linda is our hostess and we are all adding bear's to our Christmas cards:


I love my bear from the Baby Bear stamp set. He's a 3-step stamping bear. Good thing for clear stamps so you can see through them and line everything up just right:





I used an Exacto knife to cut a slit above his foot so that I could slide the sentiment layer in there. Worked like a charm:




I love using Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and any green shade for Christmas cards. Don't you? Please visit Merry Monday today to either join in on our challenge or just to visit my teammates to say Hi!

Card Supplies:

RemARKably Creative June Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone and welcome to our RemARKably Creative June Blog Hop. This month we are all focusing on new Stampin' Up! products from the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. I hope you will enjoy our blog hop!



For my card, I am using the Crafting Forever stamp set and the Pick A Pattern Designer Paper. Do you see what I did here with the stamp set? The pen image is actually a set of three on one stamp and I cut one away by itself. The pen is positioned to look like it just wrote out the sentiment. Neat huh?



I used some of the new Glitter Enamel Dots at the bottom of my Stitched Shapes Framelits Die circle. I love how these Glitter Enamel Dots come in an assorted ombre color palette. Notice how I changed up the sizes and colors?



I also used some of the new Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon that sits at an angle to offset the Pick A Pattern Designer Paper and my banner:


I hope you enjoyed today's project. I will now direct you to more inspiration by following the links below. Remember that you are visiting Debbie Henderson from Debbie's Designs and you can now click on the name of the person below me:

Ink Spreading on Glossy Paper Technique & New Video!

Happy Sunday and Happy Father's Day to all Dads. As most of you know, my Dad passed away on February 21st so this will be a first for us kids, no Dad to go visit on Father's Day.  They say the "firsts" after a person passes away is the hardest. Dave and I are meeting with his daughter for breakfast. We are also attending a Father's Day BBQ for lunch through our church and then I'm purchasing lobster for supper for us. Looks like our day is all planned out. What are you doing today?


I posted a new video to YouTube showing you a new technique. This technique was shown in our Stampin' Success magazine that Stampin' Up! sends all demonstrators quarterly. There was not name to the technique so I'm calling it "Ink Spreading on Glossy Paper". Take a look here:




Ink Refills are used along with a Stampin' Spritzer filled with water. My first card uses Flirty Flamingo and Tangerine Tango Ink Refills:




Wisteria Wonder and Tempting Turquoise Ink Refills are used in this 2nd card:



Want to learn how to create using this technique? View my new Youtube video here:

And now on to our Saturday Blog Hop:




For our theme this week, we are all using our favorite pink as a focal point on our cards. Blushing Bride seems to be my go-to pink lately. I just love how subtle and not too bright this shade of pink is?




For my focal point, I decided to use the Window Box Thinlits Dies to cut out the die-cut hexagon shape.  I added layers under and layers over the hexagon. Lots of copper going on in my creation!




The Copper Foil Sheets emboss so well. I used the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder for this one. Notice how detailed the embossing is in the photo above?



Card Layers:

  • Card Base: Blushing Bride Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Copper Foil Sheets 5" x 3-3/4". Emboss using the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder. Glue to card front.
  • Ribbon: Tie a piece of the Copper Trim around all three layers of the front of the card and tie into a bow. Position about 2" from the bottom.
  • Layer #4: Blushing Bride Cardstock scrap cut with the Window Box Thinlits Dies. Use the hexagon portion of the die. You will notice the outline of the hexagon once you die-cut. Use these lines as a guide to cut off the hexagon. Glue to card front about 1-3/4" from the bottom and over the ribbon.
  • Squiggles: Using the Swirly Squiggles Thinlits Dies, cut the medium size swirly using Copper Foil Sheets and the small size swirly using Whisper White Cardstock. Layer and glue both pieces in the center of the hexagon layer.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White Cardstock using VersaMark Ink and sprinkle with Copper Embossing Powder. Use the Heat Tool to melt the powder. Hand-cut and glue to the center of the hexagon using Stampin' Dimensionals.
