Moroccan Nights

With this card I have used the stamp set "Moroccan Nights" from Stampin' Up!®, I have firstly used the large Medallion stamp as a background. Then stamped it again, stamped all over the medallion with Versamark Ink Pad and Embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder and heat to set. I cut the Medallion image out with the largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits and adhered it to my card with Stampin'Up!® Dimensionals. Added some lovely Bermuda Bay ribbon, Brights Enamel Shapes and a sentiment.

Guest Designer - Word Art Wednesday - Flower Garden

I was invited to be Guest Designer for Word Art Wednesday for the month of March, I was thrilled to be asked to create two cards or projects this month for the challenge blog. This is my first card I have created for Word Art Wednesday. I have used the Tim Holtz stamp set Flower Garden and have colored the images with my Zig Brush Pens. I have done some sponging in the background using Stampin' Up!® Soft Sky ink pad and I have added some lovely jewels (pearls) from Stampin' Up!®. The lovely sentiment was provided to me by Word Art Wednesday which I have printed off on vellum and then put it on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock then on another panel of Melon Mambo cardstock both from Stampin' Up!®.

Please check out this fabulous Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog, I have been entering my cards for quite a while in this challenge blog and you will find so much inspiration from all the other crafter's around the world that enter every month.

Dragonfly Dreams with Awesomely Artistic

I have combined two stamp sets to make this card, Awesomely Artistic and Dragonfly Dreams. I embossed my watercolor paper with the embossing folder and sponged it so to show some dimension. I then used some of the speckled stamp doing the stamp off method and stamped the flower with stazon jet black ink before coloring the flowers. Finally I added some elements from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Creating A Scene - 3 Stamp Sets

With this card I have chosen to use 3 stamp sets to create a scene, I have used "Sitting Here", "Pretty Kitty" and "Birthday Blossoms". Firstly I started by sponging my background and using my Misti tool I stamped all my images and sentiment in Stazon Jet Black Ink on 300gsm smooth watercolor paper.

I then using my Zig Clean Color Brush Pens and Stampin' Up!® Aqua Painter I colored my image blending with some Wink of Stella and the Aqua Painter. I then fussy cut my cushions and dog out and adhered them to the swing. I finally added some jewel pearls in the centre of my flowers and some enamel shapes (brights collection) on my cushion and the sides of the card.

Check out my tutorials I have done on this card over on my Utube Channel.
