ANIMAL OUTING “SELFIE” CARDS!

With a new catalogue very soon I don’t often like to share projects with new products quite yet.  You know, there are still so many lovely products that we have in our current catalogue to use.  BUT, well I had to make this card – and share it with you right now.  It’s just such a cute set I couldn’t help myself.

This new set is the Animal Outing set.  So darn cute! And it is nice to see some Aussie animals.  So these animals had to take a selfie. 🙂

I stamped out the images and then coloured them with the Watercolor Pencils.  For the sky (which I think could have been a little darker on looking at it now),  I lightly brushed over a clear block with the Aquapainter to wet it, then coloured on the block with the Pacific Point pencil.  Then picked up the colour with the Aquapainter and washed over the background. I have to say these were the second images I coloured.  For the first ones I coloured the images then the background with the Pacific Point pencil and lightly and washed over it. I wasn’t happy with how streaky it looked.  So I redid the whole image. For the second time I coloured the sky first before the animals so I didn’t waste all that time … 🙂

Just a tip too when colouring:  Lightly colour your images first with your chosen colour and lightly brush over with the Aquapainter.  Leave it to dry and then go over parts of the image with the pencil adding highlights.  It is much more effective.   Also, Shimmery White card is the best for watercolouring I think.  Watercolor Paper can be used but it is a lot more textured.

From another piece of card (9cm x 10cm) I cut a square from the centre using I think the 3rd largest square Framelits from the Layering Squares Framelits.  I adhered the coloured piece behind it.  On a card mat ( I used Pumpkin Pie on one and Old Olive on the other) I embossed those pieces with the Layering Leaves Embossing Folder.  Tie around some Linen Thread and adhere this to your card base.

OK,  I will get back to some of the awesome current products we have – and they are retiring very soon.

Hope your weekend is going great and you are having time to create.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW #16 – BLOOMING BASKET BUNDLE!

You have probably seen the new release Sale-A-Bration items especially the Blooming Basket Bundle.  I have just received this bundle so I was interested to see what can be done with it.  I thought I would focus on this bundle for Wednesday’s WOW! today.

I came across this video from Stampin’  Up! that highlights this set and shows some gorgeous ways to colour it.  I will share the cards featured in it further below.

Isn’t this colouring gorgeous???

How do you feel about cutting around the basket?  Just a tip in cutting the handle:  If you snip the handle down near the flowers on one side it is much easier to cut inside the handle area.  Then when you adhere it down you can tuck the handle back behind the handle and no one will even know.  Saves so much aggravation. 🙂

 

How clever is this idea in the card below?  Snip the flowers and leaves off the basket and add them to the card in a different way.  Gorgeous!!!

Now I am excited to play with this bundle.  Stay tuned to see what I get to do.

Jenny

You can grab this bundle FREE as a Level 2 Sale-A-Bration choice.   Which means for orders from $180 AUS you can pick up the stamp set and the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Do you still need to stock up on card and ink?  Head to my store -> HERE, shop away and then remember to select your Sale-A-Bration choice.

BRUSHO LONG WEEKEND DAY 3 – A SPECKLED BUTTERFLY!

I think this is my favourite card.  I really like how it turned out.  Can I say that??  Sometimes I am hesitant to say that about something I have made.  But I like the effect of it and I have to say it is just chance really.  When you use these Brusho Crystals you don’t know how it will work.

The butterfly is from A Beautiful Day set.  For the sentiment I masked the first word in the sentiment from the set to just stamp the “thinking of you” and heat embossed it in white.

To find out how to create this effect I have a video for you.

So what are your thoughts on the Brusho Crystals?  Have you tried them?  Do you think now you might give them a go?  Let me know what you think.  I would love to hear.

Just a reminder that my 15% off the Brusho Crystals ends at 8pm tonight. If you want to grab them and save money on then just drop me a comment or email me and I will get that sorted for you.  Included is an information sheet to help you use your set of Brushos.  I hope you will give them a try.  I don’t think it is the last you will see of these from me.

Thanks for joining me in this.  I hope you have had a great weekend.

STAMPIN’ DREAMS BLOG HOP – IT’S A LOVE THEME!

We are back with the Stampin’  Dreams Blog Hops for 2018.  We start off the year with a Love theme.  You might have come from the super, talented Juana’s Blog or starting here with me.  Either way, enjoy the Hop.

I don’t do a lot of  “lovey dovey” stuff and don’t usually do anything for Valentine’s Day but lately I have had to do a lot of wedding and engagement cards so maybe this Hop would be a good one for me. 🙂

For my project I have created a “love” Panel card and Gift Card Holder.  

I just received the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper which is a Free choice for Sale-A-Bration.  I noticed in the pack this sheet with the circled hearts in Calypso Coral so I thought I would use that.  It looked pretty cool! The Panel card idea was inspired by a card from a recent papercrafts Magazine.  I thought it was a little bit different to the standard card.

Here is a closer view of it.  The middle section of the base card is cut off and a separate card mat adhered to the front.  I will give you details to make your own further below.

I added the hearts from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits in Calypso Coral and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  It needed something else when I had finished so I added a little bow with the Calypso Coral Sheer Ribbon.

The Gift Card holder is created with the Envelope Punch Board with the Gift Card size and scoring instructions on the board (the first one listed).  I added a strip of the Designer Series paper around it.  Just a note on that:  As the card holder is made in card it is a little thicker so the flap can’t tuck in to the envelope without  squishing it.  So I just left it open.   The “for you” is from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.

CREATE YOUR OWN PANEL CARD.

– Cut a standard size Card base.  From the front panel cut a piece off the front at 3cm (1 1/4″) down from the front score line.  On the piece you cut off, cut a piece off that at 3cm (1 1/4″).  **NB: For Imperial do check the measurements.  Basically you are cutting off a section down from the top of the fold line and then cutting a piece of that cut off section the same measurements.  You can vary the measurements to however you like.

– Make the panel piece the size you like.  This piece, the Calypso Coral mat measures 8cm x 12.3cm (3 1/8″ x 4 7/8″).  The Designer Series Paper piece is just slightly smaller.

– To assemble the card.  Lay down the White card strip that you cut off previously.  Line it up with the bottom edge of the back of the card base.  Adhere the panel on to the top and bottom edge pieces remembering to only place adhesive at the top and bottom at the back of the card mat for the panel.  I hope that makes sense. 🙂


NOW CONTINUE TO HOP

Now you can continue on your way around the Blog Hop to see the other “Love” projects.   Head on your way to Alejandra’s Blog -> HERE.  (I can’t add the list of participants on my hop as I have a WordPress blog but you shouldn’t get lost, just keep following the links on other blog posts).

Enjoy,

Jenny
