Peacock Duo

Hello Everyone,

This week I’m doubling up! Two cards each day with the same or similar products!

Today, it’s the Royal Peacock stamp set and matching dies with Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel retiring In Colours.

For the first card, the peacock was stamped with the assistance of the Stamparatus, first with Blueberry Bushel for the head and body and Call Me Clover for the tail.

The details were heat embossed with copper powder, (also retiring), and then die cut.

Some additional feathers were die cut to embellish the sentiment. This was stamped with Blueberry Bushel ink and cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

The second card is completely different!

Four large feathers were die cut from Blueberry Bushel card stock and adhered together to form an oval-ish shape.

Stitched Square dies were used to cut the green frame and the stamped sentiment.

A few rhinestones added some extra interest to the background.

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

In My Heart

Hello Everyone,

All the projects I am sharing this week will feature at least one retiring product.

Today it is the Modern Heart stamp set.

I kept it simple heat embossing the image with clear powder.

The facets were coloured with watercolour pencils, though I think a “real” watercolor effect may have been more successful to achieve the rainbow look.

The sentiment was added with black Memento ink.

Seasons Greetings

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would share this non traditional Christmas card design with you today.

The colour combination I used is Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry.

Whisper White card stock was coloured through a decorative mask using Stampin’ Sponges.

Before removing the mask, versamark ink was pressed over the panel. (The ink pad will get stained, so using an older pad might be a good idea).

I applied some clear embossing powder and heat set this to give a shiny design. This was adhered to a white card base.

A sentiment was added using Rich Razzleberry ink.

The stars were heat embossed with silver powder and die cut with the coordinating dies.

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would revisit the festive stamp sets in the Annual catalogue for today’s project.

The trees were stamped with Early Espresso Ink onto a Very Vanilla card layer.

Dabs of glue were added to the image which were covered with Ice Glitter. The excess was was tapped off and allowed to dry before adhering to a Crumb Cake card base.

Silhouette Deer

Hello Everyone,

For today’s card I used a combination of mask and ink blending to create a background.

Using post-it notes, I masked off a section of card stock.

With sponge daubers I applied ink starting with Balmy Blue.

Pacific Point was added next along the top, then Highland Heather along the bottom.

The deer and sentiment were stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed with Shimmer Black powder.

A Stitched Rectangle Die was used to cut the panel. This, was adhered to a card base that had been stamped with snowflakes in Silvery Shimmer Ink.

Wrapped Wrapped in Plaid x3

Hello Everyone,

Here are some more cards using Perfectly Plaid bundle and Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.

The paper has three main colours in collection, Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce and Night of Navy. It is these colours that I have used for my card bases.

To make a card base cut an A4 sheet of card stock lengthways at 4-1/8 inches (10.5cm), turn and score at 5-7/8 inches (15cm).

Each card base was layered with a piece of coordinating DSP measuring 4 inches (10.2cm) by 5-3/4 inches (14.6cm).

The smaller panels measured;

3 inches (7.6cm) by 4-3/4 inches (12cm) for the coloured card stock;

2-7/8 inches (7.3cm) by 4-5/8 inches (11.7cm) for the white card stock.

On this piece, the sentiment was stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed with gold powder.

The embossed panels were adhered to the corresponding card base.

Scrap coloured card was used to stamp and heat emboss the trees which were cut with the coordinating punch. These were added to each card using dimensionals.

Starry Seasons Greetings

Hello Everyone,

This week I’ll be sharing some super simple cards that can be made quickly and easily.

For this card, the star is the most complicated element, but this can sped up using the Stamparatus if required.

For the two tone look, the decorative image was stamped first with Real Red ink.

The outline was stamped next with versamark and then heat embossed with gold powder.

The coordinating dies were used to cut the image.

The sentiment was added to a white card base with Real Red ink and the star adhered with dimensionals.

Pigment Sprinkled Yuletide Cheer

Hello Everyone,

Do you like “messy” crafting? This is the technique for you!

Pigment Sprinkles are water reactive crystals packed with colour so a little goes a long way! They come in a pack of 6, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo and Mango Melody.

To create a background, I misted some watercolour paper with clean water. Pigment was sprinkled over the top.

The piece was dried thoroughly with a heat gun. The paper will curl but is easily flattened under a heavy book.

Snowflakes were die cut from Shimmery White card stock.

The sentiment was stamped with versamark and heat embossed with white powder on Vellum.

A piece of Bermuda Bay card stock was adhered behind the sentiment to make it stand out.

Some frosted epoxy dots finished the card.

A Wonderful Couple

Hello Everyone,

Wedding season is in full swing and this card has been made with a special couple in mind.

The background layer was stamped with Verdant Garden and heat embossed with silver powder.

A vellum layer softened the background a little before adding a final layer of Whisper White. This had been stamped with the sentiment using Smoky Slate ink.

The large Magnolia was stamped and coloured with watercolour pencils. After die cutting the image, I applied versamark ink over the top and heat embossed it with clear powder to give a glazed effect.

Watercoloured Bricks and Mortar

Hello Everyone,

I had a bit of fun with a new 3D embossing folder for today’s project.

I used Stampin’ Sponges to apply ink to the inside of the Bricks & Mortar embossing folder and spritzed it lightly with water.

The folder was used as intended to emboss some watercolour paper. Once dry, I trimmed it down and added it to a black card base.

Because the card is about the backround I added a simple white embossed sentiment from the Perennial Birthday set.

A few frosted epoxy dots completed the card

Hello Everyone,

I was so pleased to be asked to make this piece as a house warming gift.

The gorgeous Noble Peacock foiled DSP was used as the background.

The white panel was die cut with a Stitched Nested Die and added to a Bermuda Bay mat and adhered in centre.

I used my Stamparatus to create the peacock with Night Of Navy, Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green inks. The details were added with versamark and heat emboss in gold.

This was adhered to the Die cut Nested shape with dimensionals and then on to project.

Letters were die cut from Bermuda Bay card stock and positioned below the peacock. Feathers were cut from Pretty Peacock, Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green card stocks and added with liquid glue.

From the Bottom of my Heart

Hello Everyone,

Lots of colouring of one sort or another going on in today’s card.

I began by preparing the background panel.

I used my grid paper to line up some post it note masks so I could add ink to this portion. I did this with a sponge and Highland Heather ink.

Leaving the post it notes in place, I secured a pattern mask over the top and added more Highland Heather ink. I then added versamark to the inked section, peeled away the post it notes and embossed with clear powder.

The florals are from the Bloom and Grow set. These were stamped three times with Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The coloured images were die cut and then manually cut apart to create the large spray of flowers. I used a mix of dimensionals and liquid glue to add texture.

Finally, the sentiment was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink and cut with the Timeless Label punch and Wink of Stella Glitter was added to the larger flowers.

Inspire.Create #050

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 sketch challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

As you can see, I opted to change the circle to a star….. I have been itching to use the new So Many Stars Bundle!

I prepared a Night of Navy card base and added to this a white layer stamped with the tiny stars in the set using Pacific Point Ink.

A smaller panel was masked off with post it notes and inked with Pacific Point. Stars were stamped over the top with versamark and embossed with clear powder.

The section was inked again, this time with Night Of Navy. Additional stars were embossed with white powder.

The sentiment was added with Pacific Point Ink. The panel was matted with Night Of Navy card stock and adhered to the base with dimensionals.

A large star was stamped and die cut and adhered to the card with dimensionals. A few adhesive sequins completed the card.

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