Mama elephant "woodland gifts "

Friday, 31 July 2015

Hi stampers,
 So it's been a while again since my last post , sorry ! 

Today's card was made using the mama elephant woodland gifts stampset, which is so cute...

I also bought the co ordinating dies , just because I hate to fussy and it saves some much time using the dies.

I tend to cut the dies first from cardstock , wether it be Neenah solar white for alcohol marker colouring or watercolour card for watercolouring. Today is used water colour cardstock because I decided to colour the image in using my distress inks.

So I cut the die shape, then stamped the image using ranger archival jet black ink, as it is brilliant for watercolouring and doesn't bleed. I find doing it this way as the stamps are clear I can place the image perfectly over the die cut shape before colouring in.

I used watercolour cardstock for the background too as I wanted a blended watercolouring Sky effect, which I achieved using my distress inks and my round blender sponge. 

I then cut the clouds using the landscape trio creative cuts Dies by mama elephant and the grass using the lawn fawn grass dies . The sun is from the spring showers die set also from lawn fawn.

I adhered it all with foam pads and liquid glue and put it on a top folding white card base , which measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.

Thanks for stopping by and please come back soon

Cat's pajamas "one cupcake " + water colour background = adorable

Saturday, 11 July 2015

Hi guys ,
This is going to be a quick post as I have been away camping with my dearest other half and our fur baby and we are having a pit stop at home before we go away again for a week! Hopefully the weather will be as glorious as it has Been while we were at sandringham. UPDATED: it was super hot glorious weather!

Today's card is a cute little card made using the one cupcake stampset from the cat's pajamas, I just the bunny I think he's just adorable and cried out for a watercolour smooshed background and I just how it turned out.

I used picked raspberry,spun sugar and salty ocean distress inks for the background. For the stamped image I used my spectrum noir pens  and finished it of by using my clear wink of stella pen on the cupcake to add some shimmer...

I used the stamped the celebrate sentiment from the stamp set   in moment  black ink.

I then layered it onto a piece of stampin'up! Melon mambo card base measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2

I hope you like this card and will come back to more soon. 

Hope fully soon I will be doing some video tutorials, but at the moment I just don't have the spare time.

Happy stamping
