Hello (Stamping Sensations GD)

Hello and welcome

I’m thrilled to be back as Guest Designer for the July Challenge over at Stamping Sensations. The theme is Summer Flowers! How wonderful!!

The challenge is open from July 3 to 24th. I hope you can play along.

My card features Altnew Paint-A-Flower: Sweet Pea stamp.

I started by stamping the sweet peas on a piece of card and watercoloured using Distress Inks.

The sweet peas were white heat embossed twice on velum.

All pieces were then fussy cut.

I added some light Speckled Egg Distress Ink sprayed with a little water on Altnew – Enchanting Vines EF. It gave a lovely soft look to the background, before being layered on the card front.

The flowers were then layered over the embossed background.

Altnew’s Hello die cut was added at the end.

I have always loved sweet peas.

Please head over to our blog to  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!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments and will be sure to check out your blog.

I hope all is going well for you all! Stay safe!

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

    1. Please don’t apologise Brenda. I understand only too well. Your health is paramount. I truly hope you are starting to feel more like your life can return to a more normal routine. I am truly honoured to be invited as a Guest Designer. As you know I love joining in your challenges as often as I can and always appreciate your lovely supportive comments. I am so pleased you liked it. It was so lucky it was a flower challenge as I had made this card a few weeks before. I had fully intended to make a new one for the GD spot, but by the time I had made cards for my other commitments, I ran out of time before going in for surgery. I had loved the card but I often doubt myself. Anyway, thanks again for the honour and please look after yourself . Sending healing craft hugs. Hope you can have a good day. Cheers Helen
