Watercolour Rooster

Good Morning,

I have to admit this guy was not top of my list to choose as a Sale-a-bration freebie…. But look how cute this card is, super pleased with the watercolouring!

If you do not know what Sale-a-bration is all about click below to see more about the offers available.

I started by stamping the rooster and sentiment with black waterproof ink using the Stamparatus. While that dried completely, the background layer was stamped with Crushed Curry ink.

Acrylic blocks make fantastic little watercolour palettes. Whether the ink is taken from an ink pad or a Stampin’ Write marker this is perfect for smaller projects. The blocks are easily cleaned with a cloth or Stampin’ Shammy.

I used my aquapainter to add colour to the image.

I decided to stick to a neutral card base, using Crumb Cake card stock.

The stamped topper was adhered to the base using dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Party Time #GDP171

Good Morning,

Getting back to my schedule following the holiday season, so today I have my Global Design Project entry to share with you.

The theme this week is…. A new year. See the design team projects here

I have used the Birthday Cheer stamp set to create my project… I thought the party hats were just the thing for the theme.

I built the card base using Melon Mambo card stock. I then added a layer of glimmer paper and Whisper White card stock.

For the topper, I heat embossed the sentiment with gold powder.

The hats were stamped in Stazon black ink and coloured with watercolour Pencils and adhered using dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Birthday Presents

Hello Again,

I love this card, it turned out really great with the pastel colours.

I started this project with the presents which were stamped with Stazon Ink. This is a water resistant ink perfect for watercolouring.

I used watercolour pencils and blender pens to get this soft pastel look. These were then fussy cut. Later these were adhered with SNAIL or dimensional adhesive.

Because there are so many colours in the focal images, I used a small layer of black card stock to frame the central portion of the card.

The confetti image added some extra fun to the base card which I stamped with Smoky Slate ink.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

So Hoppy Together

Good Morning,

Today’s card is super simple and uses one of the free stamps sets available during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-bration event.

The frog was stamped with Memento Ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. This was die cut using a Stitched Shapes Framelit.

A frame was die cut from Pineapple Punch card stock. This was adhered to a Call Me Clover card base with Multipurpose glue. The stamped image was added with dimensionals.

Finally, the sentiment was stamped with Memento Ink on to a strip of white card stock. I then used a 1 inch circle punch to add the curved edges.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Just Because

Hello Everyone,

I fancied doing some colouring today so I pulled out this lovely hostess stamp set.

Choose this set when you host a party or place an order of £150 or more…… And, during Sale-a-bration get extra rewards on orders over £200.

I stamped the main image with Memento Ink. This is a ware based ink so it won’t bleed when the image is coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

The blending was achieved by starting with the lightest colour, adding the shading and then blending with the light colour again. Work in small sections while the ink is still wet for best results.

The coloured panel was then matted on to Mango Melody card stock and adhered to a Cajun Craze card base.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Lovely Lattice

Hello Everyone,

I made today’s card using a stamp set I received for FREE as part of Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-bration event.

It’s called Lovely Lattice and can be chosen as a free item when you place an order of £45.

The image was stamped on to Vellum with versamark ink and embossed with white powder.

I coloured on the reverse with Stampin’ Blends for a faux parchment effect.

As vellum is tricky to stick down I used an adhesive sheet. I cut this with the new layering rectangle dies.

A simple sentiment stamped with Old Olive ink completed the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Why not join my team and enjoy discounted prices and access to exclusive events? During Sale-a-bration the starter kit offers extra value, for a little extra you will also receive an exclusive craft tote!

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!
