For George

Hello Everyone,

Last week we said goodbye to one of our colleagues who was moving on to pursue her dream career.

As she loves butterflies, I knew exactly which set to use.

The large butterfly from the Beautiful Day was stamped with Stazon ink and allowed to dry completely.

In the meantime, the base was prepared by layering Whisper White card stock on to Gray Granite card stock. Some Bermuda Bay ink was used to add some texture to the background.

The sentiment was stamped with Melon Mambo ink and layered on to Smoky Slate card stock. The corners were rounded with the Detailed Trio punch.

The butterfly was coloured using watercolour pencils and blender pens. A bone folder was used to add shape the wings which were secured with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Today is also the last day to enjoy the Designer Series Paper sale and take advantage of the amazing joining offer.

Inspire.Create #023

Good Morning,

Welcome to another Inspire. Create challenge post. The team have a sketch challenge this time. All of their inspirational ideas can be seen here!

And this my creation featuring Tropical Escapes Designer Series Paper.

I started with a Whisper White card base.

Two pieces of paper were selected from the pack, I went with the complementary greens. A 2 inch strip was cut from each.

Each strip was cut down to 5-3/4 inches to fit the card base. Then again a 2-1/2 inches.

The pieces were then secured to the card base with snail adhesive.

A length of Lemon Lime Twist mini Ruffled ribbon was adhered along the join.

A sentiment from the coordinating stamp set was stamped on to a strip of white card stock using Shaded Spruce ink. This was added with dimensionals.

Some die cut leaves added some extra texture.

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

Pink Impressions #FMS347

Hey Everyone,

Wow it is Friday again which means another sketch challenge. The design team have some created some beautiful projects as further inspiration. You can see them here!

This is my project.

I decided to substitute the circle for this lovely die cut butterfly from the Abstract Impressions bundle.

For the square element, I chose some designer series paper from the same suite. This then determined the colour scheme for the rest of the card.

I chose Powder Pink card stock for the base. The paper was cut to 3 inches square and adhered to the left of centre to the card.

The butterfly was cut from Melon Mambo card stock and adhered across the top corner of the square. Some Glitter Enamel Dots were added to the body of the butterfly.

The sentiment from the Abstract Impressions Stamp set was stamped with Powder Pink ink on to a small strip of white card stock. This was applied to the card with dimensionals.

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

Daisy Delight C.A.S.E. Card

Hi Everyone,

Today’s post is a little different. I have cased another member of the team, Carol Ann Pendleton. She had made a beautiful card with the Daisy Delight stamp set, I wanted to make my own version.

The overall layout had been kept the same.

To make the background, Gray Granite ink was used to stamp the bubbles from the Playful Backgrounds stamp set.

Petal Pink Ink was used to stamp the Daisy. I also used this colour for the layering.

The small leaves were stamped with Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam and fussy cut. Additional leaves were made with the Leaf punch.

Fresh Fig Ruffled ribbon was adhered behind the Daisy.

A sentiment was stamped in Fresh Fig ink and tucked under the flower.

Finally, a clear faceted gem was adhered to the Daisy centre and Petal Pink pearls were added to the background.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Thinking of You – Just Add Ink #418

Good Morning Everybody!

Today I am sharing my entry for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge.

The design team have made some great inspirational projects. You can see them here!

I found this set of colours tricky… The Daffodil Delight is very bright compared to the other colours in the palette.

This is what I created.

I decided to use Daffodil Delight designer series paper for the background. A 4 inch square was cut diagonally, each portion being adhered into the corners of a Whisper White card base.

Soft Sea Foam ink was used to add some leaves to the gap.

I wanted a bold sentiment. I picked out “thinking of you” from the Rooted in Nature Stamp set. This was stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and cut with a 2-1/4 inch circle punch.

Three flowers from the Pop of Petals stamp set were stamped with Blushing Bride ink and cut with the coordinating punch.

I used the Leaf punch to cut three sets of leaves from Soft Sea Foam card stock.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The supplies used are listed below.
