Two-Tone Flora Video Tutorial

You may have seen that the Pootlers Team were blog hopping at the weekend so today’s post is the video tutorial to go alongside it.

If you missed the hop, you can start HERE

The original card used Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Mint Macaron.

In the video tutorial, I switched to purples, Blackberry Bliss and Fresh Freesia, with Pear Pizzazz….

Inspire.Create.Challenges #133 – Theme Challenge – New to You!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog and to my Inspire.Create.Challenge design team project!

Click the button below to see the other design team inspiration projects. You can also take part and add a photo of your creation here too!

I chose to work with a brand new stamp bundle called Dainty Delight.

You can see how I made my card in my video tutorial….

I combined colours from the bright and subtle colour families for the layering and chose a matching ink for the sentiment.

The image was coloured very simply with Stampin’ Blends.

A touch of ink blending in the background makes the die cut elements pop.

I opted not to add extra embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Using the Rays of Light Background Stamp

Hello Everyone,

Today I thought I would show you how you can use the Rays of Light background stamp with the Stamparatus tool.

In this example I used Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Starry Sky and Night of Navy inks.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The Stamparatus made it easy to layer the colours and add the versamark ink!

This sample used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler inks.

Why not try stamping onto patterned paper or an ink blended background?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Easel Card with Colour and Contour

Hello Everyone,

I’m bringing out another favourite stamp set for today’s card!

I created a hand stamped background, opting to use Basic Grey rather than black ink for a softer look. This complimented the Highland Heather ink I added to the flowers.

For something different I made this into an easel card. I thought this provided an opportunity for the beautiful scalloped edge to shine through.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…

The original card used So Saffron. I love this cute new tag punch!
