Creating Depth: Overlapping and Masking

Balloons are a festive way to celebrate any occasion: birthday, anniversary, retirement, graduation . . . you name it.
Celebrate Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Balloon Adventures Stamp Set

Creating Depth: The thing I want to point out with this card is the overlap of the images. For the card we stamped the yellow balloons on the card face. Then I stamped the red balloon on scrap paper and punched it out and layered it on top the yellow balloons. Using foam dimensional pieces its raised up a bit as well as overlapping the yellow balloons to give a sense of depth to the card.

Envelope decorated  with Stampin'UP!'s Balloon Adventures Stamp SetI stamped my envelope too!

Notice the difference between these 2 envelopes? You can't use the foam dimensionals on the outside of the envelope, they'd get torn off in the delivery process. 

For the top envelope I stamped one balloon over the other including the string and the bow. I thought it looked way too busy and messy.  

For the 2nd envelope I "masked" the red balloon.  That is, I stamped the red balloons first. Then I punched a scrap balloon shape and covered the red balloon image to protect it while I stamped the yellow balloon and its string and bow on top the space. when I lifted off the scrap balloon the red one appears on top. Voila! Instant dimension in 2D that won't get destroyed going through the mail.

Hey Chick - Ready for Some Watercoloring

This card features one of the super cute chickens from the 2017 Hey Chick Sale-a-bration Set. 

Greeting Card decorated with chickens from Stampin'UP!'s Sale-a-bration Hey, chick stamp set


One of the class lessons was about the different inks you'd use for heat embossing. The cool thing is that Stampin'UP! Classic Inks are thick enough to hold the embossing powder so if you use Clear Embossing Powder you can heat emboss in ANY color! WooHoo! This chicken was embossed using Smokey Slate Ink.

The reason we heat embossed is because we watercolored the body. The Stampin'UP! Inks are water soluble and if we hadn't embossed we'd have risked smearing the ink.

For readers who are unfamiliar with Sale-a-bration, this is Stampin'UP!'s big sale of the year. You earn 1 FREE item from the Sale-a-bration Brochures for every $50 of product you purchase (annual catalog, Spring Occasions catalog or Clearance Rack) .

I loved these silly chickens so much I even stamped the envelope!
