Your Thoughtfulness

Hello Everyone,

Today, I have inking this gorgeous koi carp from the All The Good Things stamp set.

I used the Stamparatus to create the mottled Colouring of the fish. Using a sponge dauber to apply the ink where I wanted it, I stamped with Poppy Parade ink first. I repeated this with Gray Granite ink.

I layered the stamped card on to Poppy Parade card stock and adhered this to a Whisper White card base.

The sentiment was heat embossed in gold and added along the bottom with dimensionals.

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.

Snowy Tree

Good Morning,

Tomorrow sees the launch of limited edition products, available during November only.

Today I have used this lovely snowflake tree to make little cards with matching envelopes.

The cards themselves are the cute narrow note cards. The tree fitted perfectly.

To make sure the images were the same on each card, I used my Stamparatus tool.

First, I positioned the trunk, and used Crumb Cake ink. On the other plate, I positioned the tree, which I stamped with Call Me Clover ink. Using the tool meant I could make up all the cards very quickly, perfect for batch making.

Shaded Spruce ink was used for the sentiment.

The envelopes were stamped with Lemon Lime Twist ink.

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

Wonderful Fall #GDP159

Hello Everyone,

This week’s Global Design Project challenge is a cute seasonal theme; the design team have made some very varied projects as inspiration. You can see them here.

I have chosen to work with Colourful Seasons.

I created a heart shaped mask from post it note paper.

Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz inks were used to stamp the three different leaf images from the set.

The sentiment was taken from Rooted in Nature. I used the Stamparatus to ensure a crisp impression.

A few sequins completed the card.

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

Rainbow Fishes

Good Morning,

I have shared a few cards with this set already, I just love these fish. Today, I am going for a little more fanciful look, using a rainbow colours.

I have used the Stamparatus again to ensure the images stamp well. I have used two colours for each fish too, though it doesn’t show particularly well in the photos;

  1. Poppy Parade, Cherry Cobbler
  2. Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie
  3. So Saffron, Crushed Curry
  4. Granny Apple Green, Garden Green
  5. Balmy Blue, Pacific Point
  6. Highland Heather, Blackberry Bliss

The sentiment was added simply with black ink.

Some Pearly White sequins and clear rhinestones added some sparkle and shine.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Bokeh Love & Thanks #FMS345

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to another Freshly Made Sketch challenge entry.

This is the sketch that has been provided by Jen Mitchell.

The design team have created some superb projects for added inspiration. You can them all here!

And this is my card!

I wanted to use Bokeh Dots to create the central rectangle. For this to work with the sketch layout, I rotated the design to a landscape orientation.

The image was stamped with the help of the Stamparatus using Mint Macaron ink.

A 1-1/4 inch strip of Share What You Love designer series paper was adhered along the left hand edge.

The florals from the Love What You Do stamp set were stamped over the Bokeh panel with Tranquil Tide ink.

The same ink was used to stamp a sentiment from the Tropical Chic stamp set on to a 1/2 inch strip of Whisper White card stock.

Some Artisan Pearls finished the card.

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

Perseverance

Good Morning,

I love today’s project! It turned out just as I had hoped. I had seen a short video clip of swimming koi and noticed many of them had large areas of white on them.

I thought about how I could achieve this.

As with my previous card using the smaller fishes; I used the Stamparatus to build the layers.

Using sponge daubers to apply the ink; I started with a little bit of Gray Granite. Added Poppy Parade around the head and tip of the tail, then added some Pumpkin Pie.

I was careful not to add ink to the middle of the body. The final step was inking the whole thing with versamark. This was stamped twice to ensure good coverage and then heat embossed with clear powder.

Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam ink was added around the fish to bring out the “white” parts and the illusion of water. A light spritz with water added to the effect.

The final piece was mounted on to Gray Granite card stock and then a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Ihope you like this as much as I did.

The supplies used are listed below and linked to my 24/7 online store.

Detailed with Love

Good Morning,

I have created my very own background for today’s card. Ordinarily, this would have been very challenging but using the Stamparatus made it so much easier.

I would recommended practising first.

To begin, the stamp was placed on the left hand edge of the white card stock.

The stamp was picked up on the door of the Stamparatus, inked up with Lovely Lipstick ink and stamped on to the card.

Using the hinge step technique, the stamp was repeated along the card.

The stamp was repositioned to create the next row, and so on until the card was covered.

Some metallic edge ribbon was attached below centre before adhering to a Lovely Lipstick card base.

The feature stamp was inked with Lovely Lipstick and stamped on to Whisper White card stock. This was die cut using the Layering Ovals framelits. These were also used to cut a scalloped layer too.

Once assembled, this was was attached to the card with dimensionals.

A small bow was added to the ribbon to complete the card.

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

The hostess code for June is 4QCQ4HPT.
