For You

Its Karen with you on the blog today using the classic Sunflower stamp set.  This is totally not what I envisaged when I started out but sometimes projects take on a life of their own.

I started by stamping my images in an orange toned ink and coloured it using pencil.  I was going to fussy cut it out and I had some background paper in mind but I couldn't lay my hands on it so decided to use a stamped background instead.  I masked off my flower thinking I could still cut it out if needed.  I used a stamp with a language I think could possibly be latin and stamped it several times in brown ink.  So now its taking on a vintage look so to  I used distress ink to add some more depth and add to the vintage feel of the card.

I decided that the image needed to be on the edge so cut my card down.  Added some hessian twine and a small tag before backing on brown cardstock.

Hope to see you back soon

Elegant Kennedy Grace Creations Card


Hello! Rachel here today with a simple watercolored card featuring the Time To Blossom stamp set!

I started my card by cutting a panel from some Ranger Watercolor paper. I stamped my image twice in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in white embossing powder. I used Distress Inks to watercolor with.

I cut my "kindness" die from some white cardstock and adhered it to my panel with Multi Medium Matte. I selectively inked the rest of my sentiment to stamp above and below my die cut in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white embossing powder.

It's a little hard to see the sentiment in the picture, but it's very clear in person. The watercolor helps it stand out from the paper.

That's it for me! Thanks for stopping by!

Distress Oxide fun

Hi, hi, hello!

Erica on the blog with another super simple, but rather eye-catching, card.

Recently I got the second lot of Distress Oxide inks and ooooh, that Picked Raspberry... L-O-V-E!! Well, I simply had to use it on several projects right away because #lovepink, am I right?

Getting a piece of smooth water colour card stock out, as well as arming myself with Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet and Fossilized Amber in the Distress Oxide inks too because options. Right-o, I basically went to town with blending and adding colour as I wanted the background really, REALLY vivid. Once I was happy it was colourful enough, I spritzed some water drops on it and lifted that off with a piece of kitchen roll. To hurry up the drying process, I used my heat gun on it until it was bone dry so I could run it through my Big Shot with a stitched die.

Then it was time to add images and sentiments. As my plan was to heat emboss the image in white on vellum I picked the one I think makes the biggest splash…
