Congratulations

I’ve been playing with the Decorative Masks of late & loving the different looks I can achieve with these.  I have also been creating classes using 004wma-blogthem for Crafty Creations Classes – my volunteer classes.

For my card today, I saw something similar on Pinterest sometime ago & filed it in the back of my mind to have a play over the Christmas Break.  Looking at the original, my doesn’t look much like it but that is a good thing.

I’ve used the gorgeous “Birthday Blooms” from the current 2016 Occasions Catalogue & team it up with the greeting from “Sky is the Limit” which is from 2016 SAB.

I used one of the Decorative Masks from the “Happy Patterns” as I sort of wanted to create a wall which the Rose could sit on.  Not sure if I pulled it off, but I’m happy with the result.

My Pearls have been coloured with a Pink & Yellow Permanent Marker.  The colours are so close to Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight that I couldn’t have planned it better if I tried.

I finished my Rose off by adding “Wink of Stella – Clear” to the flower.  I did try to get a good photo of all the lovely shinny bits, but unfortunately no luck.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Hey, Girl

I just love this gorgeous little Stamp Set.  Fantastic for so many techniques.  On our card, we played with the Blender Pen, 003wma-blogAqua Painter, paper Pierced & Freehand.

My card today is one we created in my Friday’s volunteer class yesterday.  We decided to take a much earned break from the Christmas Cards.

I had a number of kids in the class as it is school holidays in Qld & they usually like to come along, so I like to aim the cards at them.  Mind you, the ladies love creating them too.

For my card, I used both the Blender Pen & Aqua Painter along with Markers & Inks.  I will warn you that if you are using both, please be a little patient in the colouring.  This way you are guaranteed to end up with a lovely result.

I started off by casing the card on Page 44 of the Catalogue but as I went along, it sort of developed a mind of it’s own, so I just went with the flow.  I especially love how the footpath developed.  I bet if I tried to do it again, it wouldn’t happen.

I also love how her eyes have lit up at the site of the Butterfly landing on her hand.  The DSP I used has long since retired, but worked perfectly with the image.  You could change it out to a more current DSP.

As you can see, I carried the footpath onto the card inside.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
