Florals challenge

Did someone say 'Florals'? Most of my favourite stamps have some variety of flowers. I decided to combine a Winnie and Walter stampset with sentiment from Hero Arts for the current A Blog named Hero Florals challenge. I inked up an acrylic block with some Distress Inks, spritzed with some water and invert it over a watercolour card. I tried several times before I perfected the technique. I had drips from the block, not enough water, ink oozing out the side (I tried wiping it and created a mess on the white space)... I was happy to finally see this card finished. Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Stamps- Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Happy, Winnie and Walter In Bloom - Addie's Garden
Inks- Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord and Mermaid Lagoon
Dies - Hero Arts

Altenew July Inspiration


I have a card to share based on the colours of the current July Inspiration Challenge from Altenew and the current sketch on CAS(E) this sketch. For the background, I used strips of the patterned paper from  Echo Park mounted on dimensional tape. The flower and leaves were stamped on white carsick and then fussy cut. I only managed one completed card this weekend! Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Paper - Echo Park Wedding Bliss
Stamps - Altenew Beautiful Day
Inks - Altenew Frosty Pink, Ruby Red and Velvet, Hero Arts Green Hills and Simon Says Stamp
Others - PPP Clear Drops

Blue Hydrangeas

After seeing a few blue cards posted recently, I was inspired to do one as well. This card was made with Distress Inks on water colour card. I wanted to colour in the negative space as there is a fair bit of detailing on the stamp which I wanted to leave untouched. I've also inlaid a die cut from Winnie and Walter. I'm adding this card to the current A Blog Named Hero Florals challenge with Winnie & Walter. Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Stamps - Hero Arts and Winnie & Walter
Inks - Distress Inks Chipped Sapphire and Broken China, Hero Arts Navy
Dies - Winnie and Walter and MFT Stitched Rectangles
Others - PPP clear drops

PTI June Blog Hop

Materials:
Dies - PTI Love Potion, MFT Dienamics stitched rectangles
Stamp - PTI Happiness in Bloom
Inks - Distress Ink Broken China, Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry and Cracked Pistachio
Others - PPP Clear droplets, Vellum

Hanami Garden

When I saw the new Hanami Garden collection at my local Kaisercraft store, I was in love with this delicious collection! I rarely buy the 12x12 papers as usually the 6x6 size is more suitable for cardmaking. For this A5 sized card, the larger papers were perfect!! I also used the die cut from the Collectables to make this card. I'm adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Use Patterned Paper.

Materials:
Paper - Kaisercraft Hanami Garden collection and glitter cardstock
Dies - Winnie and Walter Happy, MFT Large Numbers, Tim Holtz Scribbles and Splat
Stamps - Concord and 9th 
Ink - Hero Arts 
Others - Kaisercraft pearls

This is the other card I made for a work colleague using Kaisercraft patterned papers and various dies. I'm adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Use Patterned the Paper. I tend to hoard a lot of PP and making this card which is A5 size, a good chance to use up some of my stash!

Materials:
Paper - Neenah Desert Storm, Kaisercraft Pack Your Bags 6x6 PP and glitter card
Dies - Tim Holtz Scribbles and Splat, Lil Inkers Stitched Circles, MFT Large Numbers and BluePrint, Winnie and Walter Happy
Inks - Distress Ink Gathered Twigs

A feminine 60th birthday card

We had double 60th celebrations at work this week. I made this card inspired by the colours of the current Altenew June inspiration challenge. I ended up making two cards as I was not happy with the darker colours of the first card. I thought I would share both cards but I prefer the lighter one! The first card was made by stamping with distress inks and I brushed the colours into the background and overstamp with black ink afterwards. The second card was made by stamping the images in black first and then colouring the background with distress inks. Both cards were A5 size. Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Stamps - Altenew Wild Hibiscus, Winnie and Walter Happy Everything
Dies - MFT Big Numbers
Inks - Distress Inks Picked Raspberry, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick and Ripe Persimmon
Other - Ranger Liquid Pearls
