Thankful!

Hello everyone,

Happy Monday! Hope you had lovely weekend! Mine was great. I spent my Saturday morning selling some of my craft supplies on a craft sale organised by my local craft store called Scrapbook Store. I did sell a few stamp set and dies but I made new friends. Weather threatened to rain. No actually it did rain twice during the sale. We had cover everything and duck undercover as well. lol! It was a great time. There will be one more end of November. I let you know about the final date and time in couple of week. If you are in Perth and would love some craft supplies, please do come.

Rest of the weekend I spent gardening, washing and crafting of course. So I made this card using Mudra stamp set called Sweet Rose. It is a beautiful layered stamp set. This is one of their new release this month and I LOVE this set.

This card has distress inks on the background. I used Carved Pumpkin, Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry distress inks and I used Ink smooshing technique to add colour to the watercolour panel. The using MISTI and masking technique I used the outline images of the rose and leaves to stamp a larger cluster and a few images around the clusters to fill in the top two thirds of the watercolour panel where I smooshed the distress inks. Phew! That was a very long sentence.

Then I added colour, shading and texture to the stamped images using Clean Color Brush Pens. Once dry, I spattered the same distress ink colours, distress ink black and Copic Opaque white all over the panel. I left the panel to dry while I worked on the sentiment.

Because the background is bright, vibrant and colourful, I kept the sentiment simple by heat embossing the sentiment from the stamp set on to a strip of black cardstock, trimmed and adhered on the bottom left of the panel. The whole panel is adhered to orange card base. Finally I added a few white Nuvo crystal drops on the panel randomly.

All the supplies I used to make this card are listed below.

Winnie & Walter October Rerun!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Winnie & Walter’s October rerun feature.

This month’s Rerun feature Scenery: V for Chevron stamp set.

This set will be on sale this month at Winnie & Walter store. There is plenty of inspirations by designers on Winnie & Walter Blog and there is also a challenge that runs for this month. Of course with the challenge there are prizes as well. Check out Winnie & Walter Blog for more details.

Here is my project using this stamp set.

I used the solid Chevron stamp from the stamp set to stamp the background using Altenew inks. The colours I used are Pink Diamond, Pink Pearl, Sunkissed, Minty Mist, Lilac, Sea Glass and Citrus Burst. I certainly used MISTI to double stamp and get even coverage. I trimmed this panel to 4″ x 5.25″ in size and adhered on white card base using foam adhesives.

For the sentiment, I die cut the speech bubbles using Sketchy Thoughts Cutaway using black cardstock and white heat embossed the sentiment from Sketchy Thoughts stamp set. I adhered them as shown using foam adhesive. Finally embellished with white Nuvo crystal drops.

I wanted the colourful Chevron on the background to be the highlight of the card. Hence used white on black sentiment which also pops out of the colourful background.

Check out Winnie & Walter Blog for more design team inspirations and details of the challenge.All supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Good Luck My Sweet Friend!

Hello friends, How are you? Hope you are having a great week. I am here to share another card with you using Simon Says Stamp Fun and Festive collection products.

I have used the new Picture Book Koala die and Line Circles stencil to make this card.

I die cut a Neenah Solar white cardstock using the largest wonky stitched rectangle die from Wonky Stitched Rectangle die set. Then sponged the panel with Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold and Carved Pumpkin distress inks. Then I placed the Line Circles stencil over the panel and sponged Abandoned Coral and Carved Pumpkin distress inks in ombre from edges to inside of the panel. This adds interest to the background panel. I adhered this panel to the white card base.

For the focal image, I used the new Picture Book Koala die. I die cut the Koala using Neenah Solar White 80 lbs cardstock and coloured using copic markers. Then I used the die to trace around on a white cardstock, cut it out to be used as backing for the Koala die pieces to be adhered to. This also makes the Koala sturdy. I adhered the Koala on the top centre of the sponged panel using foam adhesives.

The sentiment is from STAMPtember release stamp set called Great Things by CZ design. I love this stamp set for its fabulous sentiments. I stamped the Good Luck stamp in black on white cardstock and die cut using the coordinating die and adhered below the Koala. The secondary sentiment is white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and adhered besides the large sentiment. Finally embellished with some Gold confetti and added glossy accents on the nose and eyes.

All supplies used to make this card are listed below.
