Let Me Spoil You!


I have had another play with this fantastic fun stamp set, this is fast becoming one of my favourites, I stamped the image with Stazon Jet Black Ink after creating the background with some Alcohol Inks. I then used the Up and Away Thinlits  to create the 3D look on the Carousel Chairs. You can purchase the Carousel Stamp Set HERE! if you live in Australia.

Beautiful You

Hi Everyone, I have created this card using the new stamp set "Beautiful You" it is such a versatile set and can be watercolored but I chose to paper pierce it this time for something different using the Cupcakes and Carousel DSP.

I have used a delightful range of pastel colors as for the challenge for Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators over at Colour INKspiration #01. Our challenge was to use at least 3 of the following colors!! Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise and Peekaboo Peach. I decided to use all 6 colors and some black ink and white cardstock as my neutral colors.




With my card I firstly sponged the background using the ink colors Tempting Turquoise, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron, I used the Stitched Shaped Framelits to give the card some dimension. Stamped the sun using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set and I also used the Beautiful You stamp set for the lady which I paper pierced her hat and dress using the new Cupcakes and Carousel DSP. Using my Itty Bitty Butterfly Punch I punched out two butterflies and added a lace doily underneath the Stitched Framelits. Finally adding an embellishment to the sun and some jewels on the butterfly and some In Color Enamel Shapes to the sentiment.
