Avant-Garden: Sale-a-Bration

Having a play with my FREE Avant-Garden stamp set and Irresistibly Floral DSP.

I usually colour the irresistibly floral papers but this time I decide to leave it white. Due to the embossing, which is part of the papers, it provides texture without me having to do anything. This paper is perfect for the time-poor crafter.



This stamp set is so easy to use. One of the stamps in the set is a group of spots, which makes a great background and adds texture to the look of the card. I used one of the flowers in the set as the focal point.




The Avant-Gardeen stamp set is FREE during Sale-a-Bration! All you have to do is place an order of $90AUS or more during the Sale-a-Bration period and chose it as your FREE gift, only while stocks last.

HEY, CHICK

I've seen these cute little chicks everywhere from the Hey, Chick stamp set and finally got around to inking mine up.

I made this card with a friend in mind. Her favourite colour is purple as I am sure you can tell, and one of her well used phrases is "Hey, chick". It is almost as if this stamp set was made for her.



My card design is very simple. I made my own background by stamping the same image as my focal chick on a layer of Whisper White card stock. The main image is coloured using Stampin' Write markers and cut out with oval framelits.  I then cut a scallop oval out of Blushing Bride glimmer paper.



I wonder what you could make with this set??





The Hey, Chick stamp set is FREE during Sale-a-Bration! All you have to do is place an order of $90AUS or more during the Sale-a-Bration period and chose it as your FREE gift, only while stocks last.

I loved this design so much, that I made a second card in shades of pink.

CELEBRATE TEXTURES

I played with emboss resists technique today.


To do this I used Versamark and clear embossing powder and heat embossed the sentiments. I then used the Timeless Textures stamp set and stamped in my colours of choice.




I added three circles from the White Perfect Accents (138416) pack.



The colours I used today.

Kind Butterfly - Watercolour Wings

I have been getting some great feedback lately regarding the cards I have been making using the Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper. It appears that many of you have like the paper as much as I do.

Today I teamed up the Irresistibly Floral paper with the Watercolour Wings stamp set.



The four step stamping in the butterfly makes for a beautiful multi-coloured butterfly, just like the real thing. If you haven't used this stamp set before, don't stress, it is easy to use as it is photopolymer so you can see through to line up. It is also very forgiving if it is not lined up perfectly.




A number of people have asked about how I colour the paper, so I thought I would make a YouTube video to show you just how easy it is.




The card I am sharing today has been entered into two challenges.

Vintage Leaves for Just Add Ink

The card I would like to share with you uses the Vintage Leaves stamp set to create a multi-coloured background, with "thanks" sentiment cut out. The sentiment is from the Hello You thinlits.




I used the fine tipped glue to coat the sentiment to give it a gloss. I also used this same technique to add some details to the leaves.




The colours used in this card are from the current Just Add Ink challenge.

Washi Wednesday #3

Wednesday is certainly coming around fast these days. Welcome once again to my Washi Wednesday series.


This time I used a mat piece of card stock and covered it with Moroccan Designer Washi Tape to create an interesting background.

I then used the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set for my sentiment "Happy Day". I often use a sentiment that can be used for many different occasions as it makes cards a little more versatile. I used the Tags & Labels Framelits to lift the sentiment off the background.



Today's project has also been entered into the current The Papers Players Challenge #332

FAIRY CELEBRATION MEETS IRRESISTIBLY FLORAL

Joining in with this week's Global Design Project - Theme: Winged Creatures

My first thought with this weeks theme was to use a butterfly, dragonfly or maybe even a bird. I even went as far as pulling out the Picture Perfect stamp set and then thought...Fairies!!!


Here is what I came up with using the Fairy Celebration stamp set.



Once again I have used Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper, if you have been following my blog you have most likely seen it a number of times recently. This time I added Bermuda Bay, Early Expresso, Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight.




My final touch was to add some Fine-tipped Glue to the cherries to give them a little gloss.

MINI TREAT BAG THINLITS NOT JUST TO MAKE A BAG

This card has been created without using a stamp set - just the big shot and one set of thinlits. All the stars and the sentiment are all from the Mini Treat Bag, using Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstock.




I used the Lucky Stars embossing folder to create the star texture on the navy mat.


I hope you have gained some inspiration from my project.

Balloon Adventures - Mojo Monday 484

I really enjoyed joining in with this weeks Mojo Monday sketch.


I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set in combination with the Balloon Bouquet punch to create this cad. The squares were cut out with the stitched shapes framelits, I love how the stitched details on the framelits just give the card that little something extra.



Here is the sketch.
