Today I am showcasing the gorgeous Hearts Come Home” Bundle which includes the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set & the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies.  Although the items are not retiring, after 2 January they will not be available as a Bundle.Cards-@-Toogoom

The card was created in our Cards @ Toogoom class last week & the ladies loved it.  A very simple card but one with a bit of a wow!  What do you think?

Joy to the World - Hearts Come Home Bundle

It’s Your Day…

… Make a Splash!

I’m  just loving this cute little stamp set “Message in a Bottle“.  So many ideas, so little #8---Maytime!  It is perfect for all occasions!  In fact, when I first saw this stamp set, I knew what I had to create with it.  It has taken me some time, but am happy with the result.

I wanted to show my “Cards @ Toogoom” class how much fun it is to play with the Watercolour Paper , Aqua Painters & water & I mean water as we really wet our paper.  It also doubled as my card for our challenge over on our FB Page.

I did start out sponging Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette & Night of Navy but it wasn’t giving me the result I wanted so I switched over to Powder Pink, Fresh Fig & Tranquil Tide I then watched the magic happen as no 2 pieces will ever end up the same.

Splotches of water was then splashed over the dry Watercolour Paper to take some of the water away.  I splashed the Clear Wink of Stella over the top before die cutting with 20170626_120225blog-close-uthe Stitched Shapes Framelits  by running through the Big Shot.

I used Archival Basic Black Ink to stamp my mermaid onto Watercolour Paper.  She was coloured with Powder Pink (skin), Lemon Lime Twist (hair), Fresh Fig (cap & bra) & Tranquil Tide for the tail along with an Aqua Painter.  Between the colouring of different inks, I let them dry as I didn’t want the colours to run into each other.

The background was embossed with the Seaside TIEF by running a piece of the Thick Whisper White through the Big Shot & adhered to the Base Card – Powder Pink.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
