As mentioned in a previous blog, I attended the Paperific Expo on the weekend. I sometimes book a class and as it was a last minute decision to go, I didn't intend to attend a class. As it turned out, there was an available spot in one of the mixed media classes on watercolours. I have two cards to share that I made at the class with Beck BT using the Tinby Color Crush powders. Here are the cards I made using the Indigoblu butterfly stamp, with diluted ink brushed onto the stamp, first and second generation. I'm linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - It's Hip to be Square. Materials used: Colours - Tinby Designs Color Crush powders Stamps - Indigoblu stamps, Winnie and Walter sentiment Dies - Winnie and Walter sentiment, Lil Inkers Stitched squares
Second generation stamping with Color Crush watercolours
I've made some tags after being inspired by Laurie after seeing her video on PTI MIM - Coverplate Tags. I searched high and low for my favourite Sale Tag from PTI and could not find it! It's somewhere in my stash. So I opted for the round tag die instead. I was going to use my Garden Gate Market kit but it didn't suit the round tag. Out came the Mighty Oak die! I experimented with some new colours I got at the Paperific Expo in Melbourne yesterday and decided to use them for the tags. After sticking them on the die, I ran the tag die over the leaves so that they have the impressions on the edge of the die. Thanks for dropping by!
Materials used: Dies - PTI Sale Tag and Mighty Oak Watercolour - Tinby Designs Color Crush Twine - The Twinery
Hi all. I'm back with another card for the A Blog Named Hero 'Pop of Colour' Challenge! I attended our local 'Paperific Expo' today and had a bit of fun with a class and bought some 'need to get' stuff! One of them was a pad of 6-colour paper and it was perfect for this challenge! I made two cards at the same time just in case one didn't work out. As they are both square cards, I decided to add them to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday 'It's Hip to be Square' challenge and since it is a fun CAS card - CASology's Fun Challenge! Thanks for popping by, I'll blog about the Expo next time!
Materials used: Dies - Lil Inkers Stitched Squares, Hero Arts butterfly die Stamps - Hero Arts Inks - HA and Versafine
I just love the inspiration photo in this month's PTI Blog Hop Challenge. I had just received my Make It Market kit and was itching to ink up the new stamps. The watercolour background is done with distress inks (wet on wet), then a layer of texture paste was added using a stencil from the kit. The flowers were stamped onto watercolour card and then die cut out. The sentiment was stamped onto kraft cardstock and mounted on dimensional tape. Thanks for dropping by!
Ingredients: PTI Make it Market kit - Garden Gate, Canson watercolour card, Distress inks - Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Spiced Marmalade, MFT Dienamics rectangle die, Ranger texture paste, Hollyhock- PTI Simply Chartreuse, SSS Pale Blush Pink, Hero Arts Orange Soda and Butter Bar
I've got a card to share for the A Blog Named Hero Facebook Fan Page. I decided to mask the Hero Arts Antique flower to create a background of images. The main image was coloured in with Copic markers and mounted on black card stock. I'm adding this to the A Blog Named Hero's Pop of Colour Challenge. Thanks for dropping by! Materials used: Hero Arts Antique Flower and sentiment, Momento Tuxedo Black Ink, Copic Markers, enamel dots.
I'm back with a really CAS masculine 70th birthday card. I was invited by Lyndal last weekend for a Crafty catch up at her place. There were 8 of us crowded around her dining room table and it was a fun day. One of the ladies brought along a book cover vinyl she had purchased from Kmart. A few of us had a go with die cutting the vinyl and I brought some leftovers home to make this card! I've got to go to Kmart to get some more. They will be great for Christmas cards!! I'm adding this card to Paper Smooches Guest Designer Challenge.
