All The Good Things

When I decided to use this new stamp set All The Good Things I wanted to use the Koi Fish stamps so I did a little reading as I noticed everyone was using the common colours of orange, black and white for them. I read up on them and found they were introduced to Japan by the Chinese originally where top breeders take their most prized specimens to highly competitive beauty parades. They come in all the colours of the rainbow: pearly white, bright red, cloudy grey, dark blue and gleaming golden yellow, I have included in this post some pictures of them.

I decided to use Merry Merlot to stamp mine but first I sponged the background using Soft Sea Foam and Balmy Blue Ink Pads with My Blending Tool. I really love these fish they are so beautiful in nature.

Sailing Home

I discovered this new technique (new to me anyway) and I just love it. It's called Art Squared Technique and I have used one of the new stamp sets coming in the new Annual Catalogue next month. I can't think of a more perfect way to give your customers a better sneek peak of any of the new stamp sets coming out in June.

I have created this particular card for the #AWLSU030 Challenge - Photo Inspirational Challenge.

Lovely As A Tree

I have created another card for you today with the Lovely As A Tree stamp set with a different layout but still using the Sponging Technique with the sponge brayer, one of my favourite technique's. I sponged a piece of Shimmery White with Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry Ink Pads. I then stamped my Lovely As A Tree image to the right hand side on the sponged area, then added a piece of Shimmery White cardstock across the bottom of the card and stamped the image once again to the left side using Always Artichoke Ink Pad. Then lastly adding my sentiment.

Love You To Pieces Bundle

I love this bundle the ideas of how it can be used are endless, imagine you could make your own puzzles. You could use a photograph, dsp papers, the front of your designed card WOW this is awesome. This card today I have used the Petal Promenade to create my puzzle front on this card, I also cut out some larger pieces of puzzle in Early Espresso Cardstock and adhered them to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I chose to glue my dsp puzzle pieces in place but you could just place them in the card, let the person receiving this card have a interactive card with their own puzzle.
