RAINBOW GLIMMER BLOSSOMS + A VIDEO!

I have been playing with the so sparkly Rainbow Glimmer Paper.  It is just gorgeous.  I love the colours in it.

I created a card using it with the Many Layered Blossoms Dies.  I wondered how the diecut flowers would turn out when using the Glimmer Paper.  Let me just show you. 

I really hope you can see the sparkle in these cards.  The photo just doesn’t do them justice.

I put together a video.  I share a few tips in the video so be sure to check it out.

ORNATE GARDEN AND BEST DRESSED TOGETHER FOR A FAST ACTION CARD!

I was playing around just recently to put this card together.  I decided to film a video creating it to show the process I go through sometimes in creating a card. So not to bore you too much I sped the video up – with my lovely daughter’s technical skills. I have still much to learn in this area.  😉

When I make a card there is often a lot of deliberation and shifting things and uncertainty until it comes together.  I’m sure you find that too.

For this card I had a plan.  I always sketch the plan out first for a card.  I had already stamped and coloured the perfume bottle from the Dressed To Impress stamp set.  That was left over from another project.  I wanted to use some of the new Ornate Garden Suite that I had.

I have used the Ornate Borders Dies and the Ornate Layers Dies.  The paper is from the Dressed To Impress Designer Series Paper.  I also used the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

So check the quick video out.

Do you like these super quick videos?  Would you like to see more of them?  I will see what my editor can do. 🙂

Here is the finished card for you.

Have a great day,

Jenny

The Ornate Garden Suite is now available in store now -> HERE.

SPONGING THE FLOWERING FOILS PAPER WITH A VIDEO!

I have mentioned already the gorgeous Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You have probably seen lots around with it too.  Today I have a card to share with you using this paper and a video to show how you can very easily add the colour to the paper with the sponge rollers.

This card is inspired by a card in the 2nd release Sale-A-Bration brochure (p3)  I changed it up a little.

Here is the card.

Check the video below.

I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies on the card and the sentiment is from So Sentimental. The card in the brochure uses one of these sentiments too but I just wanted to keep it simple rather than cutting around the sentiment seen on that card.  It does give it a good effect when you do that.

The leaves are from the Birthday Dies.  These are available as Co-ordination products that go with the Happy Birthday To You stamp set also for Sale-A-Bration.

The Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper is only available for March during Sale-A-Bration (or while supplies last) so you want to grab them soon.  You receive them as your free choice with orders over $90.  Check out my store now -> HERE.

Have fun sponging and colouring this paper.

WATERCOLOURED PAINTED POPPIES!

I want to share this card with you today.  I made it at our team Shoebox Swap last week.  I will show you the other cards we made later but thought I would show you this one today as I recreated it and filmed a video to show you how it was made.  Hope you like it.

It’s using the Painted Poppies set and is a fun card – although a little messy.  This card was shared to me by Deborah in our Inky Fingers Team.

 

Just a quick overview of how to make the card but be sure to watch the video (and you can subscribe to my channel on Youtube to catch new updates.  It’s early days but I am working on it!) 🙂

  1. Use your clear block and press the ink pad on to the block to get some ink.  Use the Aquapainter to spread the ink around and make it a little watery.
  2. Press the Painted Poppies “splodge” stamp on to the clear block to pick up some ink.  Press it on to your card.  I used Very Vanilla.  You could use Thick Whisper White, Shimmery White or Watercolor card.  Repeat this 3 more times over the card in a “circular” pattern.  Use the Aquapainter to spread the ink and also add some more ink from the block if you need to.
  3. Allow to dry then stamp the flower outlines over the “splodges”.  Stamp the leaves in black over the card.
  4. Use the large “splatter” stamp and ink it up in Mossy Meadow ink.  Stamp off first on scrap paper then stamp over the larger leaves.  Use the smaller “splatter” to stamp over the smaller leaves.  Clean the stamp, ink up the stamp in Gray Granite then stamp off first on to scrap paper. Stamp on the small leaves.
  5. Diecut flower centres add them to the card and stamp the sentiment.  Adhere the card to the card base.

Hope you have some messy fun with this card.

Have a great day,

Jenny

DAFFODIL TIMELESS TROPICAL!

This weekend I am having my Tropical Fiesta Catalogue Launch.  I am sure it will be fun and with this weather it will certainly be feeling tropical.  I thought I would start sharing some of my cards using this suite.

To start off with I CASED the Catalogue.  You can find this card on p38 of the Mini Catalogue.  Isn’t it sunny and fresh??  I have to say I am loving the cute little Tropical Oasis Trinkets.

The card is just a little stamping with the Timeless Tropical stamp set and then diecutting.  Easy with the co-ordinating In The Tropics Dies. I find it easiest to adhere the little Trinkets on with Glue Dots.

If you notice the Palm Trees the leaves are stamped in Old Olive and the trunks Early Espresso.  On the card in the catalogue I think they have been coloured with the markers.  I didn’t do mine that way though.  I put together a video last week showing how I created the trees which I shared on my Facebook page when we went looking through the catalogue.  (BTW: Do you follow me on Facebook?? Just click on the social media links in the right column on my blog).

What I did was stamped them twice, once in Old Olive and once in Early Espresso.  I diecut them then trimmed off the leaves on the Old Olive one.  It is just simple snipping.

When I created the card on the video I didn’t fully complete it.  It was just to give you the idea of stamping the trees mainly.  Afterwards I put the card together but this time I did it a little different.  You can see that one below.

Which one do you like better??

This is the Timeless Tropical Bundle.  Available in my store now -> HERE. $90.75 AUD – which means you can pick up a Sale-A-Bration choice FREE. 🙂

Of course, don’t miss the beautiful Tropical Oasis paper.  (This one is available in my Paper share too.  Just head back a post or 2).

The Timeless Tropical is a great suite and I will be sharing more with it so stay tuned.

Have a great weekend.  I’m off to practise my hula dancing.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #94- MASKING WITH THE GANG’S ALL MEER!

Wednesday’s WOW! #94 – Let’s look at these cute little meerkats in the The Gang’s All Meer set available for Sale-A-Bration.  You have just got to love the sweet smiles don’t you?? 🙂

This set is great for fun birthday cards whether it’s just from you or from a whole group.  They are very easy to colour with any of your colour mediums whether it is the inkpads, watercolour pencils or Stampin’ Blends.  It has some other fun elements in the set with the little party hat for those meerkats or the cactus, or even a cute gecko that can join in the party.

See the stamp set in action in this video and particularly the great way of using this set with the masking technique.  It’s so easy and you can have a card full of these cute critters.

Below is the card with the masked Meerkats so you can get a better view of it.  Stamp as many meerkats as you like. You could use any other image you have using this same technique.

Here are some other samples Brian shared in this video so you can have a closer look.

 

Now you can have these cute meerkats yourself.

Choose this for your Free choice with orders over $90 AUD (or choose any other of the options) as your Free Sale-A-Bration choice.  Check it out in store-> HERE.

Have a great day,

Jenny
