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!

G’Day Friends,

It’s Day 2 of sharing my Feature of the Week which happens to be the sweet Timeless Tulips Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue.

August Blog n Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for August!

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing our love of Stampin’ Up! You are free to join us if you like, but we do ask that you be a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

Thank you for visiting.  If you are starting from my blog all you have to do is click on the next arrow below to continue.  There is also a Roll Call at the end of this post in case you get a little lost.

For my card today, I decided to grab Sailing Home from my shelf.  It is one of my favourites but one that hasn’t seen ink in some time.

A piece of Basic White Cardstock was embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder before being adhered to a piece of Night of Navy & then to a Thick Basic White Base Card.

The shape was die cut from Basic White with the Painted Labels Dies, the yacht stamped in the middle of the circle in Nigh of Navy Ink along with the birds & then adhered to the left side of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, chopped it back to size & into a banner shape before adhering it to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

As I mentioned, a very simple & easy card but one that I am more than happy with.

Thanks again for visiting my blog today.

Be sure to click on all the links during this hop as it always interesting to see what everyone comes up with & how many ideas we can get from visiting.  Of course, a little love on the way of comments will surely be a lovely surprise to hoppers too.

Peaceful Poppies Elements

G’Day Stampers,

Thank you so much for dropping by today!   It’s Sunday & this means we get to play with #003---Marchour March #simplestamping, 1 sketch, 4 ways.

Can I let you in on a little secret?  I had a spare kit left over from our classes on Friday & Saturday, so I challenged myself to create with what was in the kit.

I’m happy with the end result considering I was only going to pull the kit apart & reuse the bits & pieces at a later stage.

Please feel free to play along by sharing your creation over on my FB Page or to any social media platform using the hashtag #ss003.  I would love to see your creations.
