Wonderful Moments Watercoloured

I have created this card today using the Wonderful Moments Stamp Set, I have used a Aqua Painter Brush and my Ink Refills to watercolour the image. I have used some of the georgeous new colours Stampin' Up!® released in June 2018. The base card is Georgeous Grape, then my first mat is Mint Macaron and I have done a embossed border with Georgeous Grape Ink Pad and some Clear Embossing Powder. Then I have embossed a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder. Then I stamped the Bride in Memento Black Ink and embossed her with Clear Embossing Powder and then with my Ink Refills and my Aqua Painter I have watercoloured her before cutting her out with my Layering Oval Framelits. I have adhered her to a piece of Georgeous Grape Cardstock also cut out with the Layering Oval Framelits and adhered them both together with Stampin' Dimensionals and then adhered them to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Celebrate You

My card today I have used some lovely Foil Specialty Paper in different sizes to layer on my card and some lovely ribbon to separate the 2 designs. I have used adhesive sheets to die cut my words Celebrate You and some Gold Foil Sheets and run them through the Big Shot. What a breeze using the adhesive sheets to adhere them to my card.

Lovely As A Tree Christmas Card

As we are nearing Christmas Day I thought I'd sneek one more Christmas Card in, I have used the stamp set Lovely As A Tree this time. I embossed a piece of Blackberry Bliss with one of my embossing folders, then cut down a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and masked off the edges before sponging with Blackberry Bliss and So Saffron Ink Pads. I also before sponging masked off a circle for the moon, once finished sponging I removed the mask to reveal a beautiful crisp white moon. Then stamped the tree images and finally added the sentiment. I then applied the sponged panel to the front of my card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Christmas Tags

I wanted to make something different to go on my Christmas Presents this year, so I started making Christmas Tags but they could be used as a Bookmark as well.  I started with a 2" wide piece of Gold Foil and embossed it with my Holly Embossing folder, added a side panel of Whisper White Cardstock also embossed. Then cut out the Christmas Tree in Basic Black and the top layer is cut out in Whisper White using the In The Woods Framelits. I glued these two pieces together with Tombow Liquid Glue and adhered it to my card with some Tear and Tape. Punched out two circles with my punches and added my sentiment to the Whisper White piece, I then glued them together and added them to the Christmas Tag with Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally adding some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

Still Night

Welcome back crafters, with my card today I have used the stamp set bundle Still Night. I love this stamp set even though it was in the Holiday Catalogue it is a great image for your male cards. With my card today I used the Subtle Embossing Folder on some So Saffron Cardstock, punched a circle for my moon. Stamped and Coloured the Branch and Owl with my Ink Pads and a Aqua Painter, this really softened the really dark colours. Added them to my card with some Stampin' Mini Dimensionals and added a Sentiment and a couple of sequins.

This was entered into the challenge #sucolourchallenge

Serene Garden Gatefold Card

I decide to create a Gatefold Card using the Serene Garden Stamp Set and the Garden Scene Framelits, they work so well together and I just loved colouring the main centre image with the Stampin' Up!® Blends. My Base Card is made from Crushed Curry Cardstock and I have used Crushed Curry Cardstock and Whisper White Cardstock as my mats for my card along with the Tea Room DSP. I also used the Garden Scene Framelits to cut out the Bird, Butterfly and flower for the front of my card, then I stamped the word Thank You from the Kindness and Compassion Stamp set and adhered it to the back of my card. You have a good space on the back of the card to write your message.

Winter Woods Tis' The Season

Here is the last card in our series of 6 cards using the Winter Woods Bundle, this set is so versatile and can be used all year around. You've only got to look at the 6 different cards for all ocassions I have made with this bundle. Remember, I have done a tutorial on every one of these cards over on my Utube Channel, so please subscribe so you don't miss any of them.

With this card I made today I have done a lot of sponging with Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and Highland Heather after stamping the trees across my piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. I used a mask for the moon and stamped out and cut the Christmas Tree before gluing it to my card. I then added some Shimmery White Embossing Paste and a few sequins. The card sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set and I added it to a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock which was cut out with the Tailored Tag Punch.

4 Panel Z Fold Card

I have been trying to think what sort of card I could make for my Mother as she is turning 90 this month and over the years I have made her so many cards. So I have decided to make her a 4 Panel Z Card, check out my Utube Channel and please subscribe as I will be publishing the tutorial for this card. I used some chipboard numbers and coloured them with my Bermuda Bay Stampin' Up!® Blends Alcohol Marker. I then created the Z fold card as per the tutorial over on my channel, cut out the panels from Nature's Poem DSP and Soft Suede Cardstock. I then created the sentiment panel and adhered to the card. You will see I have the number 90 on the outside of my card as well as inside, so, when it is standing it can be seen and when it is given to Mum she will see it from the front of the card as well. I then cut two pieces of Shimmery White Cardstock and masked them off with Eclipse Masking Tape and using my sponge brayer sponged them with Blushing Bride Ink and then stamped them using the Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set and added a sentiment to both panels before adhering them to the card.
