In My Heart

Hello Everyone,

All the projects I am sharing this week will feature at least one retiring product.

Today it is the Modern Heart stamp set.

I kept it simple heat embossing the image with clear powder.

The facets were coloured with watercolour pencils, though I think a “real” watercolor effect may have been more successful to achieve the rainbow look.

The sentiment was added with black Memento ink.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Watercoloured Bricks and Mortar

Hello Everyone,

I had a bit of fun with a new 3D embossing folder for today’s project.

I used Stampin’ Sponges to apply ink to the inside of the Bricks & Mortar embossing folder and spritzed it lightly with water.

The folder was used as intended to emboss some watercolour paper. Once dry, I trimmed it down and added it to a black card base.

Because the card is about the backround I added a simple white embossed sentiment from the Perennial Birthday set.

A few frosted epoxy dots completed the card

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a theme challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

The sentiment was stamped on to a strip of card stock and cut with the Everyday Label Punch.

Just Add Ink #431 Sketch Challenge

Good Morning,

Another sketch challenge coming at ya today courtesy of the Just Add Ink team.

You can see what the design team have made on the blog here

So….. I decided to put a “twist” on the sketch, mainly because I didn’t like the origin orientation with the design I chose.

I began by embossing a card layer with the Curls and Swirls embossing folder, and adhering this to a white card base.

A 1-1/4 inch strip of Frosted Floral DSP was adhered to some white card stock. Half a pearlized doily was then added to the back. The strip was then added to the card with dimensionals.

The additional elements were stamped with Mint Macaron or Highland Heather inks and Die cut with the coordinating Framelits. These were secured with a mix of Multipurpose glue and dimensionals.

Some basic adhesive sequins finished the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Merry Christmas To You

Good Morning Everybody,

Today’s card is a C. A. S. E of a card from The Creative Watermelon. You can see her original design here.

I really liked the watercoloured circle of Kaylee’s card. For my version, I used the Emboss resist technique.

The light bulbs from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set was stamped with clear versamark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Ink was pressed on to an acrylic block and added over the top of the embossing.

A white card layer Die cut with a layering circle die. The watercoloured piece was adhered behind the aperture and added to a Real Red card base.

Black card stock was die cut with an adhesive sheet on the back. The word could then be adhered straight on to the card.

The rest of the sentiment was heat embossed in white and then adhered with dimensionals.

Sorry…

Good Morning Everybody,

Today’s make is a clean and Simple card.

I began by embossing a white card base with the brand new Swirls and Curls embossing folder. The folder was not rolled through all the way, resulting in the bottom of the card remaining flat.

The word “sorry” was stamped with versamark ink and embossed with copper powder.

The partner sentiment was added with Early Espresso ink.

The tree was inked with Cajun Craze, a sponge was used to add some Early Espresso to the trunk. The image was die cut and adhered using mini dimensionals.

Just Add Ink #423

Hi Everyone,

I hope those of you in the UK are enjoying the Bank Holiday.

Today I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenge.

This is an interesting combination, see what the design team have made here!

And this is what I have created featuring the Follow Your Dreams stamp set and dies.

I built the background first using the Artisan Textures stamp set. To soften this a little, a Vellum overlay was placed over the top. The panel was added to a Basic Grey card base.

There are lots of layers on the dream catcher.

First, the largest image was stamped in Basic Grey and Die cut.

The additional layers were cut from Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede card stock. These were secured together with a silver brad.

The large feathers were cut from white card stock and Soft Suede ink was added to the ends with a sponge dauber. The smaller feathers were stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on to matching card before Die Cutting and adding to the dream catcher.

The Friendly Expressions stamp set was used for the sentiment which was heat embossed with silver powder.

This was cut with the Pretty Label Punch and adhered with dimensionals. A few silver pearls completed the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.
