I picked Have a Hoot and the coordinating Peek a Hoot dies to work with.

I used the tags die in the set to create these apertures in Crumb Cake cardstock and stamped this with Crumb Cake ink.

This was used to mark a piece of Whisper White, identifying where the owls would be stamped. I used the Stamparatus to position the stamps.

The images were stamped again on a separate sheet for colouring and die cutting.

Pool Party ink was applied to the white cardstock before colouring the tree branches. (No need to colour the owls at this point).

This was adhered behind the Crumb Cake apertures, then onto a piece of Real Red cardstock before adding to a Crumb Cake card base.

The owls were coloured with Stampin’ Blends markers before die cutting. They were adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Finally, Real Red ink was used to stamp a sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The video tutorial for this project will be available tomorrow, do stop by again then!

Inspire.Create #051

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a themed challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

I chose to work with the Good Morning Magnolia bundle and matching Designer Series Paper.

The background was kept simple using the paper with a vellum Stitched Rectangle over the top.

The sentiment was cut with the Tailored Tag Punch. Two black shapes were secured behind the first and adhered with dimensionals.

I added a bow tied from Petal Pink Striped Organdy Ribbon.

A small bloom was coloured with Stampin’ Blends and die cut before adding to the card with 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.

InspireINK Blog Hop – Tic Tac Toe Colour Challenge

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s InspireINK blog hop. This time we have a fun colour challenge.

Please be sure to click through all the projects in the hop by clicking on the link below.

I have chosen two lovely retiring stamp sets for my card, Falling Flowers & Friendly Expressions.

A white card layer was first stamped with the large flourish image using Mango Melody ink.

Blackberry Bliss ink was used to stamp the sentiment on to some vellum. I secure this to the card layer by wrapping the ends behind.

Other elements were stamped on to Whisper White card stock. The images were “coloured” by moving the ink with a Wink of Stella Glitter brush. These were then die cut ready to be arranged on the card front.

A combination of Multipurpose glue and dimensionals were used to adhere the elements. Some faceted gems completed the card.

Monochrome Koi

Hello Everyone,

You will all know, I love this stamp set, it was one of the first I purchased when the current annual catalogue went live.

Sadly, this set will be retiring at the end of May, so if you love it too, grab it while you can.

So today, I thought I would try a monochrome look with this set.

Once again, with this detailed stamp, I used the Stamparatus tool to add layers of ink without the worry of misaligning the image.

I started with Smoky Slate, then used a dauber to add Tuxedo Black Memento to the areas I wanted it darker.

The layering was simple on to Basic Black card stock and them Smoky Slate with dimensionals.

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

Bermuda Leaves

Hello Everyone,

This card was inspired by a card I saw by Karen Varley at Donemark Papercrafts. You can see the original here.

I just love Bermuda Bay so I used this as a starting point to make the frame with my Stitched Rectangles dies.

I knew I wanted a sentiment for the middle. I picked out this one from the Seize the Day stamp set. This fitted perfectly onto one of the smaller rectangles.

After fiddling around with the layout, I decided I wanted to stamp around the frame. I used the Stamparatus for this so I could use 2 ink colours. I find this works best using sponge daubers to apply each colour. This stamp was from the same set. I was so pleased with the result.

I layered this panel on to Bermuda Bay card stock and then to a white card base.

The frame and sentiment were added with dimensionals.

To complete the card I added some vellum leaves. This softened the edges of the frame without being distracting.

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.
