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.

Don’t forget to see more about Sale-a-bration and the free products available when you spend multiples of £45.

If your shopping wish list gets to £99, there’s no better time to join my team. You can choose £170 worth of products to be included in your personal starter kit; add a little extra and receive an exclusive Stampin’ Up! Craft & Carry tote.

Inspire.Create #027

This week marks the first anniversary of the amazing Inspire.Create challenge blog!

Congratulations to Hannah McCurley for making it all happen.

So the theme challenge is……

You can see what the design team have made here! Why don’t you join in too?

I have created a bright congratulations card featuring Petal Palette and the Buffalo Check background.

The check was stamped with Lemon Lime Twist ink and cut down to size… (I didn’t measure it). I also cut a piece of white card stock and stamped the leaves. This was added to a Lovely Lipstick card base.

The flowers were watercoloured with Lemon Lime Twist and Lovely Lipstick inks before Die Cutting. These were adhered with dimensionals.

The sentiment was tucked in to the flowers also using dimensional adhesive.

A few artisan pearls completed the card.

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

Merry Christmas To You

Good Morning Everybody,

Today’s card is a C. A. S. E of a card from The Creative Watermelon. You can see her original design here.

I really liked the watercoloured circle of Kaylee’s card. For my version, I used the Emboss resist technique.

The light bulbs from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set was stamped with clear versamark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Ink was pressed on to an acrylic block and added over the top of the embossing.

A white card layer Die cut with a layering circle die. The watercoloured piece was adhered behind the aperture and added to a Real Red card base.

Black card stock was die cut with an adhesive sheet on the back. The word could then be adhered straight on to the card.

The rest of the sentiment was heat embossed in white and then adhered 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.

More Autumnal Leaves

Good Morning,

My lovely friend Tina wanted to see more autumn leaves, so here it is…. Especially for her!

The leaves from the Blended Seasons stamp set were stamped with black Stazon Ink on to some Whisper White card stock.

So Saffron ink was sponged over the edges of the card.

Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso watercolour Pencils were used to colour the leaves. A blender pen smoothed out the lines.

The panel was layered on to Pumpkin Pie card stock and then on to a Cajun Craze card base.

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

Today’s project is a simple presentation of the Blended Seasons stamp set. I have also used the new collection of watercolour Pencils.

These beautiful products are only available during August.

Even better, purchasing this bundle will also qualify for a Bonus Day voucher to spend during September.

To make the card, the floral image was stamped with Stazon Ink and allowed to dry.

Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green and Garden Green watercolour Pencils were used to shade the image. A blender pen was used to smooth out the Colouring.

The panel was adhered to a Granny Apple Green layer, which in turn was added to a Gorgeous Grape card base with dimensionals.

Gray Granite ink was used to stamp the lovely sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
