What are Pigment Sprinkles?

Pigment Sprinkles are watercolour pigment crystals in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours. Mix them with water to make watercolour backgrounds and washes, and use them for other watercolouring techniques. The possibilities are endless.

These crystals come in 6 beautiful Stampin’ UP! colours: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Melon Mambo.

Let’s Create …

The other night I sat down to give these amazing products a try and I was so thrilled with the results.

I thought that the Monster images from the Boo To You stamp set went perfectly with the colourful backgrounds that I created. To create the backgrounds was really easy … I simply sprinkled a little of the pigment crystals in a variety of colours and spritzed with water. Voila!!

In this card I spritzed just a small amount of water. You’ll notice that there are still some white spots showing through and the crystals aren’t all completely blended.

I sprayed just a little more water when I created this background. You can see that the crystals are more blended and there is very little white paper showing through. Same technique just more water.

Lastly, when I made this background I added quite a bit of water and as you can see the colour crystals all blended together and give a more saturated colourful background.

I love that there are lots of options and that no 2 backgrounds will ever be identical. Not only do I love the way they turned out, but it was so much fun to watch all the sprinkles come to life in these beautiful bursts of colour!!

A Sweet Harvest Hello

Hello Stampin’ friends and thank you for stopping by my blog! Today I want to share with you the adorable Harvest Hellos bundle from the Holiday catalogue. This sweet set is a must have for the fall season.

When I first saw this set in my preview of the catalogue I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

Harvest Apples

Aren’t those apples just darling? In this case I added some of the fabulous designer series paper from the Come to Gather collection. It has such a fun fall feel that I couldn’t resist … and when I think fall I think of back to school. The sentiments included with this set are perfect for all of the special teachers in our lives!

Trick – or – Treat

The jack-0-lantern option in this set makes it ideal for Halloween too! I made these adorable little treat holders … they’ll be perfect for our neighbourhood trick-or-treaters.

I can’t get enough of how cute this little guy is …

I like to send my nieces and nephews Halloween cards in the mail each year. Again this set made it so simple to create.

For this card I used a piece of designer series paper from the Monster Bash collection to add a little spooky to the background. (In a later post I will share just how spook-tacular the Monster Bash suite is)!

Notice how a little simple highlighting with the Stampin’ Blends really brings these pumpkins to life.

I hope that you have enjoyed today’s post and that the projects have brought some crafty inspiration into your day.

Here is a list of all of the products used for all three projects. Clicking on any of the images in the list will bring you to my online store. Remember if you are placing an order and use September’s host code MZ2QX6CZ you will be entered to win a prize from the Holiday catalogue!

Valentines Crafting

It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of January all ready! This weekend I have been busy crafting for a Valentine’s Day market that I am in on Saturday February 2nd at the Castlegar Complex.

I hope that you have all had a chance to check out the 2019 Occasions Catalogue, it is full of amazingly fun stamping products. My go to Valentine set this weekend has been the Meant to Be bundle and the All My Love Designer series Paper.

All My Love Designer Series Paper (148576)

These products are so versatile. They can be used for Valentine’s Day, Wedding, Anniversary or even just an everyday note to let someone know how much they are loved. Products like these are perfect to add to your craft stash because they can be used time and time again.

I love how this card turned out! Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo and Crumb Cake are a stunning colour combination and are perfect for a sweet Valentine card. Because I had so much fun making this card I also created a scrapbook layout for my February scrapbook club using products from this same suite.

These products are so much fun to create with because the images, colours and patterns are so inspiring. More importantly, like so many of Stampin’ UP!’s products the co-ordination of the Product Suites makes designing so simple. Less time spent on trying to find matching items and more time creating stunning projects πŸ™‚
