Thinking of You with Marianne Designs and Heartfelt Creations

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have another elegant white on white card with some pretty handmade Wild Roses from Heartfelt Creations.

For this card I have layered white card on a 5″ x 7″ base and added the gorgeous Marianne Designs Die LR0236 with the centre die cut out. My Gemini die cutting machine embosses the Marianne Designs dies so beautifully. the flowers are made using the Wild Rose dies from Heartfelt Creations using Dress My Craft Soft Floral Oriental paper. I have used the leaves from the Create a Flower die set from Dress My Craft. The sentiment is from the Best Sentiments stamp set from Altenew.

I hope I have inspired you to create today.

You are the Best!

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I thought I would share a card made during our lockdown. One of my favourite stamp sets from Altenew is the Beautiful Day set and it is perfect combined with the Beautiful Heart stamp set.

This card is sitting on my desk to keep me inspired on my papercrafting journey.

To make this card I have created a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base from white cardstock. I have cut a piece of pearlescent vellum from Lawn Fawn 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and embossed it with the Tufted embossing folder from Stampin Up and adhered it to the front of the card. I have then cut the edge using the Lawn Fawn Reversed Stitched Rectangle die and adhere to the card front.

I have stamped the images from the Beautiful Day and Beautiful Heart stamp sets with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink on Iris cardstock. I have then coloured the images with Zig Clean Colour Brush markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I played around with the images until I found a pleasing arrangement and then adhere to the front of the card.

To finish the card I have stamped the image from the Altenew Best Sentiments stamp set in Jet Black ink on white cardstock using the Misti. I trimmed the sentiment leaving a small white edge and then adhered to the flowers as shown with some fun foam.

I love how I can mix and match the stamp sets and be so creative with them. And I love this sentiment and why not make a card to inspire you to challenge and inspire yourself!

Shrink Prink Flowers on Cards

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share some cards made with Shrink Prink from Dress My Craft. This is an amazing product that is great for all your papercraft and mixed media projects. It is so versatile and I hope to show you what you can do with this product.

My first card features single layer flowers that I have combined with some paper leaves and leaf dies. I have coloured the flowers with Prismacolour pencils on the frosted side.

My second card features a combination of glass flowers and paper flowers. The glass flowers are made with three layers of petals and I have coloured with Copic markers on the shiny side.

My final card features some flower and leaf images from the Altenew Beautiful Heart and Beautiful Day sets. I have stamped with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink on the shiny side and then coloured with Copic Markers on the shiny side and then shrunk the images with a heat gun before layering them on the card front.

I hope you are inspired to have a play with the Shrink Prink from Dress My Craft.

A Little Bit of Colouring

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I thought I would share some cards that I made during our lockdown. Just prior to going into lockdown I had ordered the Simon Says Stamp kit of the month set for something different to try. In this kit was these three images to colour in and I have tried three different colouring techniques.

First up is these lovely daisy images that I have coloured in with the watercolour pencils that I got with the kit. I love the soft tones of the colouring and I was very happy with the outcome.

My second card I coloured with the watercolour pencils but this time I did not use water to soften the colouring. This was good practice for me to get the folds but I still need lots more practice.

My final card is some dogwoods that I have coloured with Prismacolour pencils. I will always remember colouring these in while watching all the news briefings on the Covid19 cases in New Zealand.

I really enjoyed practising my colouring but this is still a work in progress.
