WWC316 – Cathy’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and welcome

Today I’m back with a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday. Cathy is the hostess for this fortnight’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge: All About Occasions.

May be an image of text that says "STONS Everything We Celebrate! Christmas, Easter, New Year's, Valentine's, St. Patrick's Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Canada Day Fourth of July, Hallowe'en, Birthdays, Birth, Wedding, Anniversary, Thanks, Sympathy, Congrats And so many more occasions WWC316 Cathy's Challenge: All About Occasions"

A wonderful young couple are getting married in a couple of weeks, so I made this card to celbrate.

After stamping Pink Fresh Studio’s Take Pride in Antique Linen Distress ink, I used Distress Inks to watercolour the image.

I then added Prismacolor pencils to add a little more detail.

A circle the same size as the centre of the image was lightly coloured with the same yellow ink as well as some gold and white splatters. It was added with fun foam.

The diecut Congratulations was gold heat embossed twice and layered on 4 white die cuts to give it some strength, before adding to the circle.

The top sentiment from JustRIte Wedding Sentiments was gold heat embossed as added to the top corner.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Stay safe in these difficult times and have a good day

Cheers

Today I decided to creat a circle card.

After stamping the HA Flower Shop Background Cling stamp, I cut a large circle using a section I thought was most interesting.

It was then copic coloured.

MFT Pierced Circle Frames die was cut from white card and used to frame the circle with a layer of fun foam underneath for dimension.

MFT Banner from MFT BLueprint 25 set was die cut and the sentiment from HA Flower Bouquet Pieces stamp set and the balloons from HA My Monthly Hero – January 2019 set.

This little circle card could easily be attached to a gift or given on its own.

Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team!

I look forward to seeing what you create this month!

WWC315 – Marsha’s Challenge: All Things Feminine

Hello and welcome

Today I’m back with a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday. Marsha is the hostess for today’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge: All Things Feminine.

May be an image of one or more people and text that says "WWC315 Marsha's Challenge: All Things Feminine"

Today I decided to play with HA Decorate A Cake stamp set! I think the idea of a Unicorn cake is so much fun!!!

I started by lightly stamping the background stamp HA Friend on a card panel, then light ink stenciling using HA Swirl Stencil and finally spraying wtih Glimmer Mist – Bubbles. It was then left to dry, before adding to the card front.

After stamping out the Cake images, they were copic coloured and fussy cut! ( I don’t own the dies!!:( ) Each item was also covered with Wink of Stella.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_2403-2.jpg

It was then a matter of arranging the decorations on the cake and then adding it to the card front, using raised tape and glue!

I used scraps of glitter card from some old packaging for the thin layer between the image and stencil background.

The sentiment is also from HA. Last was adding the sequins.

I loved how this one turned out! A very special birthday card!!

Of course, lots of Wink of Stella to the flowers and cake decorations!! So pretty IRL!!

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Prize – a $20 voucher!

I decided to make a slimline card this time along with PB – Always Love! Stamp set stamped between the letters from Technique Tuesday Alphabet stamp set.

Everything was then Distress watercoloured and the letters and rim of the bowl had a good covering of Wink of Stella to add a little shine to this one layer card!

You lift me up!.. Friend (HLS Watercolour)

Hello and welcome

Today I’m back with HLS Watercolour Challenge for May, 2021. This year it’s Anything Goes so long as it features watercolour. So easy to join in!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 6e20e-hls2bxmas2btemplate.png

My card features Newton’s Nook – Delightful Doxies stamps.

After stamping the pup, balloon and kite they were watercoloured using Distress inks and fussy cut.

Distress ink was added to the Darice Embossing Folder and sprayed lightly with water before running it through my Big Shot. Once dry it was then trimmed down.

The card front had a panel of navy cardstock added, followed by the cloud panel.

The Cats Pajamas cloud die was cut in white card.

The sentiment from the stamp set was added to one cloud and then SSS – Friend die cut was added to a larger cloud before adding them to the card front.

Lastly, the pup, kite, balloon and butterfly were attached to the card front using raised tape.

Please head over to our blog and check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.

I look forward to seeing what you create!  Good luck!
