I Stamped This



 photo 2016 07-26 Succeed Weekly sans_zpsksus3irf.jpg
No.
Really.
I did stamp this.
...with the I Stamped This stamp set from Stampin' Up!.

To break down each project set I do, I'm supposed to create a project for the avid, casual, and new stamper.  So smart!  So no matter where you are on the crafting spectrum, you can create these items.

 photo Blog-1_zps5bqkvaux.png  This card is for the Casual Stamper.  I used the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder and then used the aqua painter to color on top of the circles.  To get the ombre effect, don't re-ink while you're painting.

 photo Blog-2_zpssrxfhopt.png  This card is for the Avid Stamper.  I watercolored a large area on some watercolor paper and then used the Confetti Stars Border punch to get all the fun colored stars.  I used the fine-tip glue pen to adhere them to the hard.  A little tedious but totally worth it.  Yes?

 photo Blog-3_zpsntkptr7a.png  This tag is for the New Stamper.  No tricky stamping here!  I used the markers to color the silverware and the sentiment and viola!  A cute tag!!

Pineapples & Banners for You

 photo 2016 06-14 Succeed Weekly sans_zps9nbflk0n.jpg

Are you a Stampin' Up! demonstrator?  Then you saw these fab projects in your inbox this morning.

I made these projects for your viewing and crafting pleasure.

To break down each project set I do, I'm supposed to create a project for the avid, casual, and new stamper.  So smart!  So no matter where you are on the crafting spectrum, you can create these items.

 photo Blog-1_zps5bqkvaux.png  This tag is for the New Stamper.  Nothing on this tag is extra fancy except the outlining on the banner.  And by fancy, I mean, super easy.  Literally draw an outline around the banner to make your words pop.

 photo Blog-2_zpssrxfhopt.png  This watercolored card is for the Casual Stamper.  I used an aqua painter, of course, and the Banners for You Photopolymer Bundle for the rest of the card.  When you buy the Framelits and stamp set together, you save 10%.  Sweet!

 photo Blog-3_zpsntkptr7a.png  This treat bag is for the Avid Stamper.  This project isn't as difficult as it looks.  Stamp your pineapple leaves on Whisper White cardstock a few times and then cut out the different "levels" to make them pop.  I used a bone folder to help curve up the tips.  The pineapple is gorgeous, isn't it?  To get this look, I inked the pineapple in Crushed Curry and then stamped it directly onto watercolor paper.  Because the paper is so uneven, the ink won't apply evenly (this is exactly what you want to happen.)  Before the ink dries, I used my aqua painter (my tool of choice these days) to color in the spots I needed ink by using the ink already on the paper.  This creates different hues of the ink and I think it looks marvelous.

Swirly Bird Envy

 photo 2016 05-31 Succeed Weekly sans_zps31m2t2jo.jpg

Because I created my own company (Fancy That Jane), I'm able to contract my talents to other companies.  I'm excited to share that I've been doing quite a bit of Contract Work for Stampin' Up! lately.  How fun is that?

If you're a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, then you get to receive a weekly email full of crafting ideas, business tips, promotions, etc.  Today was the first day I was able to showcase some projects I made.

The cool part about being a contracted artist is that I get to see products before everyone else and I get to play with them.  FUN!

 photo Blog-1_zps5bqkvaux.png  This card is for the Avid Stamper.  I had to fussy-cut the bow ties on the kite and I drew the stripes on my paper with my aqua painter.  These simple steps will kick your card up a notch.

 photo Blog-2_zpssrxfhopt.png  This tag for this candy jar is for the Casual Stamper.  I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, trimmed the waves, and added some aqua painting to the waves.  I also trimmed the Scalloped Tag Topper punched tag down because it was just too wide for my project.

 photo Blog-3_zpsntkptr7a.png  This card is for the New Stamper.  No tricky stamping here!  I love how simple yet chic this card is.  It just makes me happy looking at it.  Swirly Bird stamp set, I think I love you.

There's a bundle?  Stawwwwwp!
