Hola everybody,

Welcome back! I have a thanks card to share using Mudra stamps and stencil.

I used Mudra’s Deco pattern stencil to create the background. I sponged distress inks on the stencil first. The colours I used are Spun Sugar, Milled Lavender, Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade and Dried Marigold. Then I added Moonstone glimmer paste over the ink sponged stencil. The Moonstone glimmer paste is clear sparkle paste. So the colours behind the paste shows through once the paste dried leaving a gorgeous background with sparkle. I trimmed the panel and adhered to the card base using foam adhesive.

For the sentiment, I used the Thanks Die. I die cut three out of grey card stock and one out of silver glitter cardstock. I stacked glued them all with the silver glitter die cut slightly offset the grey to give shadow effect.

To frame the sentiment, I used the Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies. I stamped the flowers and leaves in monochromatic grey using Altenew’s Rock Collection ink set. I chose the grey monochromatic flowers and leaves because the background is already colourful and gorgeous. By using colour on the flowers and leaves, it will compete with the background. I clustered glued a few flowers and leaves to make two small clusters. I adhered one on top of the sentiment and one on the bottom diagonally. This frames the sentiment. Then I added a few glossy accents as dew drops on the flowers. I have no idea, how they became red! I swear I only added glossy accent. Anyway, I felt it looked cool! So that is it. That is the card for today. Hope you like it.

Wishing You JOY at Christmas!

Happy Monday everyone!

Hope you had a lovely weekend! We had a bit of sunshine and hence I went trekking to near by hills. Had so much fun climbing Perth hills. Anyway, today I had a chance to play with the new Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Festive Trees stamp set and coordinating die. So here is the card I made.

I started with white heat embossing the bubble tree seven times. Then using the coordinating die, I did cut them all out. Then using distress inks, I sponged the die cut trees. Each tree has two shades of the same colour to make seven rainbow coloured bubble Christmas trees. I arranged and glue them in two layers. On another panel, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and also stamped the bubble images all over the panel. I coloured the bubbles in rainbow colours using copic markers. I adhered the three bubble tree layer on the top of this panel and the fours bubble tree layer on the white card base. I adhered the sentiment panel using the foam adhesive for dimensional layer. Finally I added glossy accents on all the bubbles on the sentiment panel and to a few random bubbles on the trees.

This is a fun and colourful Christmas card. Not a traditional one. Hope you like it. I have all the supplies used to make this card listed below.

Hocus Pocus!

Hello everyone,

A quick post today sharing a halloween card using Taylored Expressions 3×4 watercolour panels – Halloween.

I coloured one of the watercolor panels from Halloween collection using Faber Castell’s Polychromos pencils instead of watercolours. I just didn’t have the patience to watercolour. Because of the textured paper, the pencil colouring came out pretty good.

For the background, I used one of my distress ink blended background. The coloured used are Seedless Preserve, Black Soot, Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed. I added Moonstone glimmer paste over Bubbly Stencil on the background.

Then I simply adhered the pencil coloured 3×4 watercolour panel on the centre of the background panel. I adhered the entire panel on to a card base. Finally to add more texture I added a few glossy accents to the bubbles on the 3×4 pencil coloured panel.
