Season's Deliveries

 Hi folks!

Cannot believe it's been a month since my last blog post!!! This just isn't good enough lol !

Anyhoo, my two wee cards today feature some cute pups from Penny Black Inc, which I inked with a Gina K Designs Warm Glow ink pad on to Botanical Ultra Smooth watercolour paper. I then painted them with my Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer pencils.

For the ink blending I used Distress Oxide ink pads, first in the colour Antique Linen on both cards, then on the first card I used Crushed Olive over the top and on the second card I used Festive Berries. But decided I wasn't happy because they were a bit too bright so went over these colours with Antique Linen, which toned them down.

I splattered the ink blending with water and white gouache paint, stamped the sentiments with a Versafine Vintage Sepia ink pad, added some white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the mistletoe and then finally some white Ultra Fine Flower Soft for the furry trims on their hats and stocking.

A Pter-rific Birthday

 Hiya peeps!

I hope you're all well. I'm back with a shadow box card featuring a cute pterodactyl stamp from Heffy Doodle.

I stamped this wee guy with a Versafine Vintage Sepia ink pad on to Botanical Ultra Smooth watercolour paper, painted with my Faber-Castell Abrecht Durer pencils and fussy cut them out.

For the base of the card I cut two pieces at 7x7 inches and scored both at a half inch and one inch. This makes the finished portrait size 7x5 inches. I then cut a window from one piece using a rectangular die. My inspiration for making this card was from Jennifer McGuire's YouTube video, which you can find here.

For the background I ink blended with Salvaged Patina and Broken China Distress Oxide ink pads and a cloud stencil with white gouache paint. I die cut the mountains, ink blended those with Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink pads and added more white gouache paint for the snow peaks.

For the front frame I used the same blue Distress Oxide ink pads and splattered with the white gouache paint.

I stamped the sentiment with a Versafine Imperial Purple ink pad, adhered everything together, sticking the stamped images on to acetate and sandwiching them in between the two pieces of card.

Then for the finishing touches I added a few wee clay stars and some Stickles Stardust glitter glue.

Have A Ball!

 Hi peeps!

I'm back with a card featuring another one of Anita Jeram's super cute illustrations, he looks like he's having a fab time! Lol!

I used Versafine Vintage Sepia ink to stamp the image on to Botanical Ultra Smooth watercolour paper and painted with my Faber-Castell Abrecht Durer pencils.

I ink blended with Distress Oxide ink pads in the colours Tumbled Glass and Broken China, splattered this with water and the same inks.

I hand stitched a heart, stamped the sentiment with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and to finish I stamped some wee hearts with Versafine Clair Glamorous ink and dotted Stickles glitter glue next to them.

Happy Purrthday

 Hiya folks

Wow! Another scorcher today! We had thunder earlier but no rain so it's still boiling, urgh!

Anyhoo, more puddy cats on my card today, these sweeties are from My Favorite Things. I inked them with Versafine Vintage Sepia and stamped on to Botanical Ultra Smooth watercolour paper, painted them with my Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer pencils and fussy cut them out.

For the background, I used Distress Oxide ink pads in the colours Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey to ink blend, splattered with water, the same inks and Perfect Pearls. I then used a confetti patterned stencil on top of this and used the Wild Honey ink again. 

For the sentiment I used a die cut and stamp, die cutting the word 'happy' four times and layering for depth.

And the finishing touches are a few wee clay stars, some Stickles Stardust glitter glue and Nuvo Limoncello jewel drops.

Purrthday Wishes

 Hi peeps!

I'm back with another fabulous stamp from Anita Jeram @ Colorado Craft Co! I tried the 'no-line colouring' look and need a lot more practice I think!

I used a Gina K Designs Amalgam ink in the colour Barely There to stamp the image. As always I stamped on to Botanical Ultra Smooth watercolour paper and painted with my Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer pencils.

I ink blended with Distress Oxide ink pads in the colours Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet, splattered it with water, the same inks and Perfect Pearls.

I stamped the sentiment and tag with Versafine Imperial Purple ink. And for the finishing touches I did a little hand stitching, popped some gems on and used some Stickles glitter glue.

These super cute kitties are from Anita Jeram @ Colorado Craft Co, love her illustrations. I stamped them with Vintage Sepia Versafine ink on to Botanical Ultra Smooth watercolour paper and painted with my Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer pencils.

Ruby Anniversary

 Hello everyone!

Here's a card I made for my uncle and aunty's ruby wedding anniversary, where I was a wee bridesmaid 40 years ago!!! Crikey! Lol!

The sweet stamp is from Lili Of The Valley, I used Vintage Sepia Versafine ink to stamp with on to Botanical Ultra Smooth watercolour paper and coloured with my trusty Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils.

I ink blended around the image with Distress Oxide ink pads in the colours Spun Sugar and Festive Berries and used a cloud stencil with these colours too. I then splattered with water, the same inks and Perfect Pearls.

I stamped the sentiment inside the heart balloon with the same Versafine ink, used some Stickles Sprinkled Sugar glitter glue for a bit of sparkle and popped some pretty heart embellishments on to finish.
