Today I have a nice cheerful scrapbook layout to share using Stampin’ Up! Fruit Stand designer series paper, In-Color card stocks: Peekaboo Peach & Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo ink and the emboss resist technique with Versamark and White embossing Powder.
Petite Petals & Flower Shop stamp sets & their matching punches were used to create the fantastic flower images. Punches are a very quick way to make multiples as I did in this layout. You truly won’t mind that you are making so many.
The flowers were stamped onto Peekaboo Peach & Watermelon Wonder card stock with Versamark ink and then sprinkled with white embossing powder and heated before punching out. After the punched images were created, I used a dauber with Flirty Flamingo ink to the centers and edges of the flowers. The embossed area resists the dauber ink and provides additional highlights and depth to the flowers without the ink covering the white stamped area-thus the “resist”.
I also used this emboss resist technique on the journal tag “always” strip. The word from this and the title which follows is from the Sunshine Wishes Stampset.
As you can see, I’ve already gone ahead and made lines with a Watermelon Wonder marker at 1/2″ spacing in order to write a few words with the Project Life black pen. The words I selected highlight things which make my girls my sunshine. I believe including my own writing is necessary for future memories. Even if I don’t like my own writing now, someone will cherish it some day.
The Title was stamped with Watermelon Wonder ink onto Whisper White card stock and easily layered onto a Watermelon Wonder Scalloped oval both die cut from the Layering Ovals Framelits.
Most traditional 12″x12″ scrapbookers I know are always behind in getting their pictures into Layouts. Sadly, I am very behind. Hopefully by blogging and making layouts to share, I will slowly catch up. I’ve challenged myself to post a layout a week. So, if you wish to follow along, you can do so. Perhaps you’ll catch up too, if you are behind. I’d love to hear if these layouts are helping you scrap your memories. So, please share in the comments.
To make things easy to recreate this or a similar layout, here are the cut instructions:
- You need 1) 12″x12″ Sheet DSP for background of page. All other colors should match this patterned paper. I chose this pattern from the Fruit Stand DSP collection and used the coordinating card stock pack to match. So easy that way!
- Watermelon Wonder: 7.5″x7.5″, 3.25″x4.25″ for Oval die cut, 1.25″x2″ for journal card header, and approximately 1/3 sheet for stamped/punched flowers
- Peekaboo Peach: 2) 3.25″x4.25″ photo mats, 1) 4.25″x6.25″ photo mat, 1/2″x2″ strip for journal header, & approximately 1/2 sheet for stamped/punched flowers
- Whisper White: 1) 3.25″x4.25″ for Oval title, 2.25″x4 7/8″ for journal area.
If you like different colors, it is easy to create this layout and change up the colors by selecting different patterned paper and matching card stock. I thought these colors really highlighted the idea of sunshine.
