May all your Wishes Come True!

Hello and welcome back!

I am on Winnie & Walter blog sharing this card I made using their products.

I have used rock and roll technique to stamp the flowers and leaves from W&W’s In Bloom: Eva’s Favorite Flowers stamp set. The inks I used are from Altenew. Love that they have four shades of the same colour. So easy just pick the colours you want and work with it. I stamped the flower centres using white pigment inks. This will add details to the flowers and break up the large area of colour. I then used the coordinating die to die cut them all out.

Instead of using white or black card base, I chose a charcoal cardbase. Something different to what I normally pick. The flowers and leaves are clustered on top of the card base in rainbow order and adhered some using glue and others using foam adhesives. The sentiment is from Sentimental: Birthday stamp set from W&W which I white heat embossed on the bottom centre of the card. Some clear droplets to finish off the card.

Here are some closeups of the card.

Thanks!

Hello Y’all! If you are following me on Instagram, I shared a photo of Simon Says Stamp’s Flora watercolour print which I coloured using the Daniel Smith sample dots on the print. Here is the full panel coloured.

I made it into a card!

Honestly, I paced back and forth so many times before I cut into the panel. I didn’t want to cut the panel at all. First I thought I will used the whole panel to make a large card. But I do not have an envelope for it. So after a few paces, I gathered the courage to trim the panel to 4″ x 5.50″. Actually I did not loose much of the design. Great! Now to make it into a card, I decided to choose a darker gray card base. This is Simon’s Slate Gray cardstock. I adhered the panel on the card base leaving two strips of the gray showing on either side of the panel. The gray is dark enough to pick up the black outline of the design as well as the light gray watercolour on the design, tying them all together.

Since the design is the highlight of the card, I kept the sentiment simple. This is Thanks die from Simon Says Stamp as well. The die has both the word as well as the shadow to it. I used the same Slate Gray cardstock for the shadow and silver matt glitter cardstock for the word. The silver glitter paper being matt is not very glittery and it picks up the gray from the shadow and projects it. Hence giving the gray undertone to it. Just to add interest I bunched up some white thread behind the sentiment and embellished with sequins.

Here are some closeups of the card.

These watercolour panels are awesome. Great for travel because they are not heavy unlike books and they have the waterolour samples on top of the panels. All you need is brush. I wish I had bought all of them because I am travelling next week and would like to take a few of them to colour. I think I will make a few using the background stamps and take my Daniel Smith watercolour sample dots sheet with me. All supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Sending Strength No Matter What!

Hello friends!

I have a card share today using two new products from Altenew released yesterday. I have used the new Gradient Lines cover die and the Strength Blooms stamp set and coordinating die to make this card.

The Gradient Lines die is awesome. I sponged a white panel using Altenew’s Sunshine inks. This ink set has four shades of yellow. I love bright yellow because it makes me happy. The sponged panel has light yellow to darker yellow on the bottom. I die cut this panel using the new Gradient Stripes die. I saved all the negative pieces for later used. I adhered this die cut on the white card base flush.

Then I stamped the flowers and leaves from Strength Blooms stamp set on white card panel. I used Red Cosmos inks for the flowers and Sea Shore inks for the leaves. The flowers are layered stamps so the ink set is perfect to stamp. Leaves are single layer and so I stamped them with Volcano Lake ink first and then partially inked the leaves with Lagoon ink to stamp. This gives beautiful shading to the leaves.

I die cut the leaves and flowers using the coordinating die and adhered to the bottom left and top right corners of the card front slightly offset. The overhangs I trimmed off. The sentiment is white heat embossed on strips of black cardstock and adhered on the bottom right in two layers. I then added red sequins to tie both the flowers and bring the card together.

Here are some closups of the card.

I love the bright summery colour combination on this card. These colours remind me of one of my wedding sarees. No black though but the red, green and yellow are very typical go to colours for weddings outfits. I still have the saree and haven’t worn it since my wedding! Time to pull it out and wear for an occasion. All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.
