You are so Beautiful!

Hello everyone!

Hope you had a lovely weekend! Mine was as usual. Getting household chores done. Yesterday, the sun decided to show up after a long time. So plenty of washings done. But more so I got a few cards done too.

Today, I am sharing a Simon Says Stamp card using the new STAMPtember Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set. I combined this new set with the previous Beautiful Flowers stamp set to make this card.

I used the large cluster of flowers and leaves from Beautiful Flowers stamp set and stamped on the edges of the panel on the long side.Then masked a few leaves and stamped the single flower and leaves on the edge of shorter side of the panel. Now the panel is beautifully framed with the flowers and leaves.

To colour the images, I used copic markers as the base colour. I picked rich fall colour tones to colour a solid base layer. Then I came in with Faber Castell Polychromos colour pencils to add shading and depth to the images. I used white pencil to highlight areas and darker shade of the colour to add shading, then coming in with the lighter shade of the same colour to blend them all together. Again I added a few layers of colours. This colouring took me about an hour. I came back with copic grey marker to add shadows around the images.

Using Sakura white gelly roll pen, I added more highlights to the coloured images. Then with Sakura black glaze pen, I added some dot details around the stamped images. I seriously love the colours on the card.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Flowers stamp set in the middle of the panel using Simon’s intense black ink. Then I coloured the large sentiment with the same colours I used for the images and the exact same process. Copic markers as base layer, then came in with polychromos colour pencils for shading and depth. I added shadow using the grey copic marker pen.

I adhered the panel on to a maroon card base using glue. Finally added some white nuvo crystal drops to finish the card.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below. Hope you like my card and got inspired.

W&W September Rerun Feature!

Hey dear friends!

Welcome to Winnie & Walter’s Septemeber Rerun feature.

First of all, I cannot believe it is September already! I thought it was first of July just a few days ago. Wow! How fast did July and August go by? Unbelievable! Anyway, this month’s rerun stamp set is called Typecast: Cary 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.

This is my inspiration using Typecast Cary stamp set.

I used pastel coloured inks from Altenew to stamp the alphabets from the stamp set on a white panel. The colours I used are Pink Diamond, Pink Pearl, Mountain Mist, Minty Mist, Sunkissed and Limestone.  Then I layered the panel with vellum die cut using the smaller rectangle die from Essentials: Katherine Cutaway. The tag is die cut using the tag die from the same Essentials Katherine Cutaway using wihte cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment using the alphabets from Typecast: Cary stamp set and Scenery Stripes stamp set to add stamped details to the tag. I attached the tag to the vellum layer using foam adhesives and added a bow to the tag using white twine. Then to add a bit more detail to the tag, I smooshed the Pink Pearl and Pink Diamond ink pads on a scrap piece of cardstock and die cut two fish tail end banners using the die from Essentials: Katherine Cutaway. Then layered glued them, trimmed into a third and adhered to the tag as shown. No embellishments on this card. I didn’t feel the need for it as this card is more stationery style card. Alternatively a few enamel dots or Nuvo cyrstal drops will be good.

Here are some closeup of the card.

This colours I used on this card is out of my comfort zone. Pastels are not my thing but I do love them especially with lots of white. Hope you like it too.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.
