Hello

How time gets away.

Thanks for stopping today.

Today’s card I am linking up to the current challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here

And here is my card

SBB July 2015 4 (534x640)

I started by stamping Kaisercraft lace stamp using PTI aqua mist ink onto my cardstock. I stamped the images from Mama Elephant Up and Away in memento tuxedo black ink onto blending cardstock before colouring with various alcohol markers and cutting out with the co ordinating dies. Before I fixed the die cut images to the card front I added small flowers from the set in SU pink piroutte ink. I used the Mama Elephant stitched die from the basic set I ran it through a second time to make my rectangle smaller. Before adhering I added a small piece of SU Mint macaron dotted lace trim. The sentiment from Inspired be stamping small fancy labels 1 is stamped in SU smoky slate ink and punched using the designer label punch.

Hope you have a great weekend planned.

Cheers

Vicki

Hello

I have one more card from my watercolour play to share

I stamped and coloured onto watercolour paper. The darker areas of colouring I added using water colour pencils from the same set. The stamp is Stamplorations Blooming buds and the sentiment is from Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flowers II.

Thanks for stopping

Hello

As I had hoped I got a little uninterrupted crafty time yesterday. So I was able to get out a watercolour set I have had for a few months. So I have now given them a warm welcome.

Sorry lots of pics today.

Today’s card(s) I am linking to the following challenges.

The Paper Players #252 – The Great Outdoors here

and

Get Creative Challenges #18 – must include flowers here

and

I took my colour inspiration from this website/advertising pic I found here

 

Jane's Doodles anemone (640x448)

I used Jane’s Doodles Anemone for this card. I used a mask and stamped the image multiple times with Memento tuxedo black before colouring with Royal Langnickel watercolour set.

and

jane's doodles anemone 3 (640x397)

This set of 2 cards I again masked and coloured. The sentiment is from Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flowers II.

and

jane's doodles pretty peonies 2 (503x640)

This card I did a little different I swooshed around some colour before I stamped my images from Jane’s Doodles Pretty Peonies, Anemone and Doodle Flowers II. I think I like this result better as the black stamping is on top.

and

Jane's doodles pretty peonies (506x640)

For this card I watercoloured my paper in blocks and then stamped. I finished this card with a few clear sequins.

These two final cards I am linking to the challenge at

Freshly Made Sketches #194 here

stamplorations about a rose (640x412)

For these cards I watercoloured an area first before stamping the image from Stamplorations About a rose in memento tuxedo black ink. The sentiment is from Jane’s Doodles Pretty Peonies finished with a line drawn with a fineliner. The card on the left I also added a few clear sequins.

Thanks for making it all the way to here! I have managed to ink up a few NBUS sets, use a piece or two of card stock from my stash and get my watercolours wet.

Cheers

Hello

Today I am sharing a card I have made using Uniko Flower Power #6 & #7 combined with at sentiment from SSS.

I am linking up to the current challenges at

Virginia’s View here

and

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #4 here

AT Inspiration Challenge 4

and

Loves Rubber Stamps challenge #159 here

Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenges

Here is my card

Uniko flower power (640x456)

I used the two Uniko sets with SU inks in Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and So Saffron.  I stamped the full images than the outline in a slightly darker ink mostly off centre. When complete I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp It’s your birthday stamp set in memento tuxedo black ink. I mounted onto Pink Pirouette cardstock and attached to my card front. I card for my stash.

I also have a few tags I made using Uniko Flower Power and Mama Elephant stitched tag die from the basic set.

I used sentiments from Uniko Flower power #2 along with images from Flower Power #1 and #5 and Background Builders Flower Power.

This tag used background builders stamped with Bermuda Bay ink 3 times

tag 1 (640x479)

This tag used image from Flower Power #5 stamped with SU Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil delight ink

tag 3 (640x389)

The last tag used SU Night of Navy and Real Red ink and an image from Flower Power #1

tag 2 (640x340)

These were all fairly quick. As it is school holidays I have been a little busy with Museum, Scienceworks and zoo trips plus having the children’s friends over. It is a different type of busy to the normal school term which starts back on Monday.

I hope to share some more soon. The 3 girls have gone out with their Dad and Mr 17 is studying so that means I get a little uninterrupted play time with some new toys.

Cheers

Hello

Today’s card I am linking up to the current challenge at Inspired by Stamping here and the customer gallery.

I followed this sketch

IBSIC95---July-Sketch, Inspired by Stamping

Here is my card

IBS celebrating 2 years (640x475)

I started by printing some IBS digital paper which was in the latest newsletter.  I think one of the colours in my printer wasn’t right – my paper is more green than the newsletter sample.  I am sorry Joanna if this isn’t how you intended the colours to look.  Anyway I used the paper I printed.  It seemed to co ordinate really well with SU Pool party cardstock and coastal cabana ribbon.  I used Mama Elephant Sew Fancy stitched circle die and Lifestyle crafts nested circle dies for the die cut circles. I used SU Pool party, Bermuda bay, Night of Navy and Baked Brown sugar inks to stamp the images from Inspired by stamping Celebrating 2 years. I finished the card off with a little die cut from SU Balloon Framelits.

Thanks for stopping

Cheers

Hello

 School holidays are under way here. Yesterday we had a visit to the dentist for Ms 15, Ms 10 and me. Ms 15 and I had a seal on a tooth each and I had to have a filling replaced as it had fallen out and I hadn’t noticed! My dentist’s father had put the original filling in when I was much younger. Today was a trip to the orthodontist for Ms 15 to check her plate. I think that is all the necessary stuff sorted so we should be able to enjoy the rest of the break.

Anyway you didn’t visit today to hear about our dental visits.

Today I am sharing a card I have made using a mix of stamp sets.

I wanted to get another masculine card made for my stash – I think I will have a few more boy birthdays soon.

Virginia’s View Challenge #16 here

I had the Uniko stamp set Background Builders Round in Circles, SU Smoky slate and Real red inks on my desk with Island Indigo ink when I saw the SIP challenge. I switched the Island Indigo for Bermuda bay and added the new set of SU Awesomely Artistic and the Uniko Studio Classic Numbers sentiment.

Here is my card

uniko round in circles (640x466)

I mounted the main panel onto SU real red cardstock. I have kept most of the stamping to the bottom 2/3.

And here is my card

Uniko nautical treasures (640x459)

I created my own patterned paper using Uniko Nautical Treasures in SU River Rock and Smoky Slate inks. The main image from Uniko Nautical Treasures is stamped with SU Smoky slate ink. I mounted with SU night of navy cardstock. I used Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Dies to create waves, pattern beside the main image and the stitching around the sentiment panel. I also used Inspired by Stamping Fancy Label dies 3 and a 2″ circle punch for the sentiment panel. The sentiment is from PTI Star prints stamped in SU night of Navy ink. The sentiment panel was attached to some double sided adhesive paper I have had for ages and attached to some fun foam to give dimension. The twine is from Annabelle Stamps.

Thanks for stopping

Cheers
