Cartwheels on the Beach

Heya Stampers,

The last weekend in May we had a team meeting where we played with new & carried over stamp sets, played with techniques & discussed our business, including being a 20170530_101827BLOG-INSIDEHobby Demo.

Over the next few days or weeks, I will share with you the cards we created.  I do hope you will like them, even better if you are inspired by seeing them.

First off the rank is my card using the gorgeous “Beautiful You” Stamp Set!  I call this card “Cartwheels on the Beach”.  I love how she looks like she doesn’t have a care in the world with the sun shinning down on her & nothing on her mind but enjoyment.

I’ve used our Watercolour Pencils to create the colours.  I especially love the sun shining through the sky.  I’m only sorry you can’t see all the pretty sparkle on the card from adding Clear Wink of Stella.

Goodbye Blooms & Bliss DSP

I created this card when the 2017 Occasions Catalogue first come out as it was part of our Technique Treats for January 2017 where we highlighted the “No Line Watercolouring” Technique.

Along with the gorgeous “Beautiful You” Stamp Set, I wanted to highlight the lovely “Blooms & Bliss” DSP which is part of the “Blooms & Bliss” Suite, page 138 of the current Beautiful-YouCatalogue & which is retiring at the end of May.

The image was stamped onto a piece of Watercolour Paper, stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits & layered onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry Card which was cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits.

The image was coloured with the Rich Razzleberry Watercolour Pencil & an Aqua Painter.

The flowers were cut from Rich Razzleberry & Melon Mambo Card by running the small Flower from the “Botanical Builder” Framelits through the Big Shot.  They were then adhered to the Card Front & Pearl Basic Jewels adhered to the centres.

GDP 076

Today’s card is one I created for the challenge over at Global Design Project which I have followed for some time but have never played along.

This week it was “Case the Designer” & seeing as thought I loved the original card so much & wanting it to be totally different, I decided to go with the lovely “Beautiful You” Stamp Set & of course, this screams Watercolour Pencils.  I opted to go with Shimmery White for a little more of a brighter look than the Watercolour Paper.

Thank you everyone at GDP for a great challenge, thoroughly enjoyed it.  Be sure to pop on over & play along too.

Note Cards

G’day Stampers,

Today I thought I would share with you a couple of Note Cards I have created for my customers.  I am trying something a little different this year, so fingers crossed it works.  I will fill you in only IF it works!!!!!!

For my cards, I stamped the ladies from “Beautiful You” Stamp Set (available from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue) onto a piece of Whisper White CS using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I coloured them in using the lovely new Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pen.  Love my Blender Pen!

The Whisper White Cards were then layered onto a piece of Melon Mambo or Pacific Point CS which highlights the colours.

Only a short post today as I am still recovering, so fingers crossed things will be back to normal in a couple of days.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Thank You

My post today is using the gorgeous “Beautiful You” from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  Last week, we had a challenge to create a card or project using something from the new Occasions Catalogue.  Well, with everything going on, I have only just managed to do mine, but hey, better late than never.

In fact, I’ve created the cards to send out to my customers in January.  I did a couple in each colour.

Have you noticed the “Brick Wall”?  I created that with the Early Espresso Watercolour Pencil & then softened the lines & a little blending with my Blender Pen.  I also “Paper Pieced” my dress.

Just a reminder to use the January Hostess Code when placing an order Online, as you will receive a free gift at the end of the month.

Until next time, Enjoy!
