HAVE A IRRESISTBLY PERFECT DAY

Please note: I HAVE ENTERED THIS IN THE CRAZY CRAFTERS TEAM HIGHLIGHTS. IF YOU LIKE IT, PLEASE VOTE HERE

I am on a bit of a kick playing with the Irresistibly Floral DSP.

I used the same technique as last time. Using an Aqua Painter and reinkers. This time I played with Rose Red and Melon Mambo reinkers. I love the way we can get so many different shades of the same colour by simply added a little more water from our brush.




I then layered up a sentiment "hoping your day is perfect" from the Suite Sentiment stamp set, using Rose Red and Blushing Bride cardstock.

IRRESISTIBLY WETLANDS

Water and more water, that's the theme of this card.

I used the watercolour pencils to colour the goose image which is from the Wetlands stamp set.



For the background piece on this card I used the Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper. This paper is comes white for you to either use it as such, or for you to add colour in any way you choose. In this instance I used reinkers with my Aqua Painter to create the colouring I was after.





I love how you can use this paper with whatever colours you choose.

DRAGONFLIES FOR MY DESK - #GDP071

Please note: I have entered this project in The Crazy Crafters Team Highlights. If you like it, please vote for it HERE

THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE THAT VOTED FOR MY PROJECT AT THE CRAZY CRAFTERS TEAM HIGHLIGHTS. THIS PROJECT WAS ONE OF THE TOP THREE.

Hi everyone! It's Australia Day here and I thought I would use some of my time today to join in with the Global Design Project #071 and make a 3D item!!

Yes, that's right - this weeks challenge is 3D


Here is my entry.




I love these dragonflies and they are so easy to use on the big shot.




I really like the gold with the Bermuda Bay. I am so proud as this is the first time I have cut my Serene Scenery DSP (141642). No point having double sided paper just gathering dust, it was made to share with the world.  #loveitchopit


I hope you like my project today.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Valerie Moody



Welcome once again to a Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. This time we are CASEing (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by Valerie Moody. Now what can I say but "WOW!", it was hard to choose just one to CASE. Her blog is full of amazing projects. We hope you find great inspiration from todays projects.
 
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from the person previous to me.  Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.


When I came across this card I loved it at first sight and kept going back to it, so this is where my inspiration came from.




This technique is heaps of fun. It is very quick to come up with an unique background. I used a clear block and placed it into an ink pad and then put the wet block on the card. With this technique, each card looks different.






I used the Stampin' Up! notecards to make a couple of quick cards. This first one uses Peek-a-boo Peach ink.





This second card uses Mint Macaroon. I just love the bubbly background on this card.





Dragonfly Dreams was used for both the sentiments and the dragonfly image.







I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop.

Rosalie

Product Highlight- Stylish Stems Framelit Dies

I own a fair amount of Stampin' Up! products as you would expect, but I do not own everything. Well not yet anyway!

This little gem I had over looked, well sort of anyway. The first thing I thought was "Who needs another flower die??", then I moved on. That is until now! I've just seen the Stampin' Up! product video on this set. It has now moved from the "why both" list to my wish list. I had better get selling...


Here is the video which I would like to share with you today.






I wonder if it might creep up on your list after you check it out? Here are some examples made by Stampin' Up!





Pretty cute if you ask me. Personally I love the use of the negative image on cards.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD!!!

Both my husband and I come from reasonably big families. So what does this mean?

Well, it means babies!

We are expecting three so far this year and two could come at any time. So for a change I thought I would be organised and start making cards for the happy parents.

My nephew and his partner are expecting a baby girl. The nursery is all ready to go in lovely shades of purple. So using this knowledge, this is what I have made to celebrate her arrival.



I had a play with the new watercolour pencils in the 2017 Occasions catalogue. Before the release of the pencils I had never even picked up a watercolour pencil before. Although I am nowhere near an expert I am pretty happy with my results. They go on smoothly and are easy to blend with a blender pen. On top of the ease, I also find it very relaxing.






The elegant eggplant piece (the purple cardstock for those not familiar with Stampin' Up! colours) has been flicked with clear Wink of Stella to create a sparkly effect.

Did someone say card kit???

Do you want a way to make 12 birthday cards without the fuss of having to design them yourself?

But wait there is more...tags! Yes, it also includes the materials to make 12 gift tags. This kit may just be your answer.

Take a look at this video to see what is included in the kit and just how easy it is to put together.







What a great variety! I can't believe that it could be so easy to make a shaker card. Did you notice the envelope template? How handy will this be when you are addressing your cards in the future.


This kit could come in handy for to make those last minute birthday cards that you have forgotten, or it would make a great gift.

SHAKE THAT HAMMER!!!

After the fun making yesterdays shaker card for the Global Design Project I decided to give it another go today. This time instead of using the hexagon shaped framelit from the Build It Framelits for my shaker space I decided to use tool shapes from the same set.





As the tool shapes were smaller than the hexagon I needed to have a few smaller shaker pieces. I stamped the screw heads and tacks on to some cardstock and then fussy cut (cut them out by hand)them.


I then added a few stars from Metallic Enamel Shapes (141678).

SHAKE THOSE TOOLS!!!

I've had an idea for another shaker card floating around in my head, then I saw this week's Global Design Challenge and snap that was it. I just had to get crafting!

These are today's colours.




This is what I made.





Those screws and bolts are just perfect little shaker pieces.






I hope you like todays card. If you are ever looking for inspiration check out the challenges that are around. It is heaps of fun to play along, even if you don't manage to put an entry in.

CUPCAKE SHAKER

One of the first things I thought of when I saw the Tasty Trucks Stamp Set in the Sale-a-Bration catalogue was - shaker card. I knew I just needed to make one and today I finally got around to it.




I just love these little tiny cupcakes that I fussy cut to put inside the shaker. A touch of Wink of Stella was the icing on the cake.




If you are loving the Tasty Truck Stamp Set as much as me, it could be yours for FREE if you spend $90AUS during the Sale-a-Bration period (4 Jan - 31 March 2017).

Getting back into the swing of things and playing along with this weeks Global Design Project.

This is my entry.





This week we are CASEing the designer. Here is my inspiration.

I am new to using watercolour pencils , but having heaps of fun with them.
