I wanted to use my Stampin’ Write Markers in some way on my card this month.  I feel that sometimes we just sort of overlook our wonderful Markers.  I know I do, do you?

The panel has been masked off with Masking Sheets prior to randomly stamping an image & then carefully removing the masks prior to ruling a line down each side where the stamping ends.  It sort of looks like it has been layered onto Cardstock, don’t you think?

Hand-Penned Petals by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

Welcome & thank you for dropping by.  It is very much appreciated.

I am a little late in sharing this card with you today but thought I would anyway.  I even have a little video to share with you too.

The card has actually been Page 28 of the Annual Catalogue but with my spin on it.

The flowers are from the lovely Hand-Penned Petal Stamp Set, Page 107 & have been coloured with Watercolour Pencils along with the Water Painters.  I love my Pencils.  Have you played with them yet?

I am loving the bright colours of Melon Mambo along with Basic Grey, So Saffron & Granny Apple Green.  What do you think?

Watercolouring with Painted Poppies Stamp Set

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by today.  It is very much appreciated.

As July is Watercoluring month I thought I would share a couple of cards I’ve created using our Water Painters, Inks & Refills.  It is such a fun technique, so be sure you have a play.

Check out this video highlghting how to watercolour with your Water Painters.

As I hadn’t played with the Watercolour Paper for some time, out it came.

For my card I was determined to use a set that I hadn’t used for sometime, so down came the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.  In fact, this set is fantastic for watercolouring as the images are big & open, just want you want for quick & easy cards.  I also dug out my Watercolour Pencils & Water Painter.

The sentimet is from Peaceful Moments Stamp Set & has been stamped onto Very Vanilla with Gorgeous Grape Ink.

Do you recognise the layout?  It has actually been cased from Page 28 of the Annual Catalogue!

Now that you have seen my card & how easy it is, don’t forget to dig your Wwater Painters out & do a little watercolouring too!

My card today is totally different to what I’ve been sharing but hey that is a good thing, right?  I’ve only used a small piece of the lovely Designer Series Paper too.  In saying that, this layout is perfect for using up small amounts of Paper.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

G’Day Friends,

Today I am hopping along with Kylie’s International Blog Hop for July.  This is a hop where Demonstrators from all around the world chose to take part highlighting all our lovely product.  If this is the first time visiting my blog, thank you so much for dropping by.

You are able to vote for my card Here or by clicking on the photo below.

Thank You is our theme for the hop.  Many of us don’t take the time to thank the ones we love or care about.  It can be the simple things that they do for us each day or big things that they have done recently.  It is so important to say thank you and show our appreciation for the hard work of others and the kindness that they show.

I love creating this type of card & posting them off in the mail or leaving them in my neighbours letterboxes.  Do you know of anyone you can this type of card to?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I’ve been playing with the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite from the new Mini & wow, are you going to love creating with it too!   It’s simply stunning & perfect for all occasions.

At first the main image was stamped onto Basic White but after putting the card together I decided it needed a little something else as it was too flat.  I then stamped the same image onto scrap Basic White, coloured & blended with Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Combo, finishing off with the Clear Wink of Stella.

After die cutting the image with the Splendid Stems Dies, it was adhered over the top of the original image with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Much better I think.

The sentiment is from one of my favourites – Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.  Not only is it perfect for all occasions but the font seems to suit all cards.

Go To Greetings

G’Day Friends.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Today, I have a “bits & pieces” project to share with you.  It is one that I’ve created with a a little this & a little that rejected from other projects.  Now, in saying that it wasn’t because I didn’t like them, they just didn’t go with the final project or looked a little out of place.

I will also admit that I am not good at going back using up bits & pieces.  With me, they either get used for that particular project or they end up in the bin!

The paper is from the now retired Waves of the Ocean DSP while the leaf is from Palms Dies & die cut with Granny Apple Green.

The daisy has been punched with the Medium Daisy Punch from Basic White Cardstock, sponged with Pacific Point Ink & a Sponge Dauber.
