SAILING HOME MINI CARD!

Today I have a mini card for you using the Sailing Home bundle.  I received this one in a Team swap last month I think.  I am not sure who it was from sorry. 🙂

This is a mini Card measuring about 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3″x3″)

From what I can tell with this card the sky was sponged in the top part of the card using Pool Party ink. The water was created using the lines in the High Tide set.  It’s great when the stamp sets co-ordinate with each other. I think it was given a light wash with the Aquapainter to blend out the colours. The lighthouse was stamped separately and then diecut and coloured in small sections of it.

It’s a sweet card so Thank You to whoever made this card.

Come back tomorrow so you can see more cards using the Sailing Home stamps and the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing dies.

TEAM SHOEBOX SWAP – DAY 2!

I have another group of photos to share with you today from out Team Stamp day a couple of months ago.  We all created a card in the Shoebox Swap for each person to create.  I showed you some lovely ones yesterday. (Head back to the last post if you missed it).

This is a mix of different cards.

I haven’t used Sheltering Tree set in a while.  After stamping the tree on the white Diecut oval, then stamp the small “dots” in the set in different colours over the branches.  We used Tranquil Tide, Pineapple Punch (I think), Grapefruit Grove, and Lovely Lipstick.  There was a purple colour created but that was from mixing the Lovely Lipstick and the Tranquil Tide I think.  The white card piece was backed on to a diecut black oval that was cut in half.

The next one below uses the High Tide set and the cool seat from Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  The sentiment is from Colorful Seasons. To create the background on the card, ink the clear block in the Pool Party inkpad.  Lightly spritz it with water and stamp on to the Shimmery White cardstock.  The reeds are stamped in Soft Suede and then stamped off again on the card to make it lighter.  This was repeated a couple of times.

This next one is using the Coffee Cafe stamp set and the Coffee Cups Framelits.  The card was distressed a little with some sponging with Soft Suede ink.  This was a fun card to create.

Hope you like them.

Be back again soon with more,

WATCH IT WEDNESDAY #9 – THOSE HIDDEN STITCHED SHAPE FRAMELITS!

For today’s episode of Watch It Wednesday I want to share a  product that sometimes gets missed in the catalogue.  Every time I use these in class my class members are amazed.  Where had these been hiding all the time?? So I wondered if you had really discovered these yourself.

Today let’s look at the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I think these Framelits are great and I do use them all the time.  They give an extra dimension around your shape without being too fussy.  What do you think of them?  You need them in your stamping supplies for sure.

Here are a couple of cards that I have used them on.

Thanks for visiting.

MINI NOTE CARDS WITH HIGH TIDE!

I held a workshop last week and the Host asked to use the High Tide set.  As a Thank You to her I made up a little notecard set and put them all together in a box made with the Wood Crate Framelits.  Here they are for you to see.

For the sentiment on the crate I went over the “shine” word with the markers and stamped on white card.  I did have to go over it a little with the markers when I stamped it to get a clear impression.

Here are the cards for you to see each one.  The cards measure 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3″x3″).  I made them all different.  The set is so versatile and so many combinations you can create.  I hadn’t played with this set that much until I made these.

This is the Make and Take card we made.  This is Cased from Julie Davison HERE.

I think I need to use this set  more.  I have so much to play with at the moment. Just not enough time 🙂

Thanks for visiting me.
