Artistically Inked

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing with you the card I created for our series of CASEing the Catalogue.

Of course, we couldn’t go past the front cover of the Annual Catalogue without doing our version of the cover.  The colours & design are so bright & fun.  I never tire of looking at the cover.

I decided to go with Artistically Ink Stamp Set along with the matching Artistic Dies.  Both of which I haven’t played with in some time.  Although in saying that, I’ve only used the sentiment from the Stamp Set after all!

A piece of Balmy Blue Cardstock was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder while the die cut flower shape has been sponged with Sponge Daubers with Old Olive, So Saffron, Merry Merlot & Balmy Blue Inks.

The sentiment has been stamped with Merry Merlot Ink before being cut back to size & shape.  A piece of the Gold & Vanilla Satin-Edged Ribbon was adhered behind the sentiment prior to being adhered across the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To see how I coloured the die cut flower, be sure to check out the video.  I also show bonus projects to inspire you.

To complete the card, Palye Papaya Opal Rounds were randomly added to the card front.
I’m loving the colours of Pale Papaya, Balmy Blue & Very Vanilla along with the Ink colours.

Today I am sharing our Create Weekly #19 Sketch layout.  I share a layout each Sunday & the on the Monday a video is shared creating a card with the layout along with 1 or 2 alternate ideas.  They are always nice & easy which is what it is all about plus it’s a great way of getting your mojo going with the added bonus of being lots of fun.

For my card today I played with one of everyone’s favoutite- the Hues of Happiness Suite which is in the Annual Catalogue.  Even though I am not a Bright’s person, I am loving all the bright colours in this Suite.

The Base Card is Pool Party & teamed up with the lovely So Saffron flower which has been die cut from the gorgeous DSP.  Don’t you love it when we can do that?

Sunny Splash

G’Day Friends,

I have an easy but fun technique for you today.  I first saw this somewhere in my social media feed either TickTok, Pinterest or FB.  I’m not sure which but it stuck in the back of my mind & thought I would give it ago.

To create my bubbles, I’ve used Coastal Cabana Ink along with a Sponge Dauber.  You could also use your Blending Brushes if you wish along with as many colours as you like.

It would be great to see the same effect with different shapes or even balloons.

I am loving the soft colour of Coastal Cabana along with the Bermuda Bay togs & Basic Grey sentiment.  What about the bling?  They are the Evening Evergreen Opal Rounds which just pops the card even more.

Friends are like Seashells

GDay Friends,

Thank you so much for popping by today!  It is always very much appreciated.

Today sees the return of my Feature of the Week.  I’m happy to say that it is returning with one of my favourite Stamp Sets from the Annual Catalogue – Friends are like Seashells.

This is one I’ve cased from Pinterest & of course now I can’t find it to give credit to the creator.  If you recognise it, please let me know.

It’s been yonks since I’ve played with my Water Painters so when I saw this lovely card I thought it the perfect timing to dig them out & play around a little.

The colours I’ve used for the background are Bermuda Bay & Soft Suede.  I think I also mixed a little Crumb Cake there too.

Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.

My card today is one we created in our Mystery Stamping a couple of weeks ago & thought I would share it with you.

I’ve been playing with the Soft Pastels of late & WOW, WOW, WOW!  I can’t seem to put the things down.

If you haven’t see them in the Annual Catalogue, do yourself a favour & grab them today, as you need these little beauties in your collection.  I love them so much that I’m planning on doing a series of classes with them, but more about that later.

Again it is an easy layout & one which you can use over & over while resulting in a completely different look.  But then again, that is what Mystery Stamping is all about – simple, easy but with a little bit of mystery!!!

To watch the video on how I created my card, click on the photo below.

Of course, when you have a great layout that you love & use over & over, there is no stopping.  I then shared a 2nd card I created that morning with different supplies.

My 2nd card I shared using the same layout has been created with the lovely limited Waves of the Ocean Collection.  This Collection will no longer be available after May 2.

Cardstock is Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy & Basic White.  The images have been stamped in Soft Suede, Basic Black & NIght of Navy Inks.  Of course the Waves of the Ocean DSP is from the Collection.
