Focal Friday ~ Stampin Up Color Palette Featuring Nature’s Beauty

 

Hi Friends,

Today’s Friday Focal challenged me a little but I immediately knew I wanted to use the Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin’ ® Up! This stamp set reminds me of my son in law as he loves hunting. Lets look at today’s color palette.

 

 

The fall colors are always so much to play with. My favorite season is spring but I love the richness of the fall colors and are always fun to work with. Unfortunately fall seems to rush right by us so the time frame to play with these combinations are small. It seems Christmas comes so fast and before we know it it will be 2021!

 

 

For today’s first sample I truly tried to design almost exactly what I saw in the focal image and I struggled quite a bit. There is a lesson to be had here…

 

 

My husband surprised me with a little trip to the mountains so I rushed my way through this sample because I was short on time. The time away was so worth it though and once I got back home and back into the craft room I immediately created another card which I am quite happy with.

 

 

 

Now isn’t this a good learning experience? Do not allow stress or your lack of time to effect your creative spirit. If your project is not going as planned and your stressed by it just simply get up and walk away. Take a walk, take a bath, or like me, take a mini vacation. It is amazing how 2 nights away with the love of your life can change things. 🙂

2020-2021 Annual Catalog, Stampin Blends, Wednesday Sketch

Weekly Sketch ~ Celebrate Sunflowers & Walk in the Woods By Stampin Up!

Welcome back friends.

This Wednesday I will actually be out of town for a much needed break away from the ins and outs of life. Hubby and I are escaping to the Smoky Mountains and I cannot wait!!! For today’s Wednesday Sketch I have chosen to feature 2 really fun stamp sets from Stampin’ ® Up! “Celebrate Sunflowers” and “Walk in the Woods”. Both sets are perfect for the fall weather and worked wonderful with this weeks sketch. Lets take a look and let me know if you agree.

 

I absolutely love the “Celebrate Sunflowers, Stamp & Die Set and it is available at 10% off. Sunflowers are so perfect for fall. If you have not seen this bundle please CLICK HERE so you do not miss out on the amazing dies that go along with this stamp set. I enjoyed coloring, as always, with my Stampin’ Blends. If you are new to Alcohol coloring I would definitely recommend these markers. They come in both light and dark in each bundle so there is never a question as to which markers will blend well together. Let me know if you have any coloring questions. I am always just a message away and would be glad to assist you in any way.

For my second card I am featuring the “Walk in the Woods” Stamp Set. This stamp set is also a nice set for coloring. I got very carried away following the sketch and have added in a lot of texture with the “Many Medallion Dies“. These dies are also available as part of a bundle along with the “Best Year” stamp set at 10% discount.

 

These cards are a perfect theme for me heading to the mountains today. I hope you all have enjoyed today’s projects. CLICK HERE to join my VIP Facebook Group and share your Stampin’ Up! projects with all of us. We would love to see your current projects.

Remarkable You ~ Stampin’ Up! ® Color Blends

Welcome back!

Today I am sharing some coloring I did with the NEW Stampin’ Blends this evening. I have had this “Remarkable You” stamp set for quite some time and I immediately thought of it when trying to decide which set to color first. These 4 large images are perfect for Alcohol Marker Shading.

 

Below are the color combos I have used for each individual flower. I hope this encourages you to gives these markers a try. I am more than happy to help guide you in any way needed.

For this beauty I have used Light Pumpkin Pie Dark Pumpkin Pie, and Light Cherry Cobbler

For these amazing leaves I have used Light Old Olive, Dark Old Olive, and Light Daffodil Delight

For these I simply used Light and Dark Daffodil Delight along with Light and Dark Old Olive.

Last but not least I colored this beautiful flower with Light and Dark Calypso Coral and Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler along with light and dark Old Olive for the stem.

Stampin’ UP!® Blends Markers are HERE!

Welcome my friends,

This is my very first post to my Exclusive Stampin’ UP!® blog. I have been slowly working on this blog design for a while. A lot of you may have seen my posts over at www.fairystampland.com and may be wondering why I am starting another blog? I want to separate my design team work with non Stampin’ Up!® companies from my Stampin Up!® work. I love both but I think it gets a little confusing for the reader. So www.melaniestamps.com will be 100% Stampin’ Up!® projects, promotions, and stamping fun.

A lot of you may be joining me from my other blog where I have mostly shared my work using Copic Marker Coloring. So it excites me to no end to begin this blog introducing you to the NEW Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.

 

Stampin’ Up!® has just released the first collection of markers. We have 13 color families plus the color lifter. It is recommended that you use Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper White Card Stock when coloring with these blendable markers. Here is a video brought to you by Stampin’ Up!®

I will be sharing photo samples of my coloring soon so stay tuned. Thank you for stopping by today.

Happy Stampin’
