You're The Best

Monday, April 30, 2018

I'm on a bit of a roll with card challenges at the moment so here's my second post in a row entering different challenges!  My card today is for CAS(E) this Sketch! #269 and the design brief was to create a card using this layout.

I wanted to incorporate some colour technique into this card so for the Daffodil Delight/Pumpkin Pie card I inked up my stamp with Daffodil Delight and then used my marker pen to draw directly onto the stamp (not "thumping" I actually drew lines where i wanted to add accents of Pumpkin Pie).

I also thought the card would look great in Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise.

This time I used the baby wipe technique, adding drops of ink from my reinkers to a baby wipe and using that as my stamp pad to pick up colour onto my stamp.

EDIT: For a look at how I created these colours, here's my video tutorial from my regular Tuesday evening Facebook live slot.

I just love the motivation a card challenge gives.  Use the link above to go to the CAS(E) this Sketch post to see what every one else designed using this design template.

Happy crafting,

Happiest of Days #WWYS165

Saturday, April 28, 2018

It's been a while since I last entered a card challenge so I'm excited to be taking part in the What Will You Stamp challenge.  This week they challenged crafters to use the stamp set Happiest of Days so I rummaged around and found a few bits and bobs and threw this card together to enter it into the challenge.

I couldn't go past the deep beauty of Berry Burst as my dominant colour for this card.  It has an understated majesty about it and it sets off the Gold Glimmer paper perfectly.

Although you can't see it in the photos, the image is stamped on Shimmery White cardstock to complement the bling of the Glimmer paper behind it.

The Happiest of Days stamp set is soon to retire so make sure if you don't have it that you grab it for yourself now!

Blessed Paisleys

Thursday, April 26, 2018

The sentiment from the Paisley's and Posies stamp set is a beauty!  I love using it both for the words it contains but also the style, the smaller sized words over the top of the larger bottom one with a dividing line.  It's quite it's own style and I like that!

So to celebrate it I made this card which allows the sentiment to take pride of place up top.

It's surrounded in the background but a host of other stamps from the set which used Versamark ink only, no colour.  This creates a lovely soft background.

Who are you thankful and grateful to and feel blessed to know?  Grab this stamp set before it retires at the end of May and get sending some cards out to those special people in your life.

Happy crafting,

Colour Revamp

Monday, April 23, 2018

To celebrate our 30th anniversary we have revamped our colour collection.  Some colours will be retiring to make way for old favourites coming back and there will be some brand new colours.  This is in addition to the usual change over of In-Colours!

Confused?  Check out the table below to see everything that's coming and everything that's going.  Don't forget to stock up on everything that is retiring because these stocks of these will run out fast.

To help you get your act together and get those retiring colours while they are still available I am offering 10% off all products in those colours until the end of the month.  That means you will save 10% off those colour stamp pads, ink refils, In-Colour marker pens, cardstock, ribbons, and embellishments when you shop in my store.  Just place your order and I will contact you to refund the difference.
