Easter Message


Here are a few simple cards made with the Easter Message Stamp Set.
First up is a colourful assortment of flowers in a basket with the Thanks a Bunch sentiment.
The Leaves were die cut using one of the Dies from the Stylish Stems Dies.


The flowers in the second card were stamped in Archival Black Ink before colouring them in with
colours from the Brights Family - Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry.


The third card is an Easter card combining the cute Bunny with a basket of colourful eggs.

High Tide


Last week I ordered the Stamp Set High Tide from the Spring / Summer Catalogue.
This stamp set has 4 great sentiments so I made cards with 3 of them.
I sponged the Whisper White Card Stock with Soft Sky and Sahara Sand Inks for the background for the first card.


I coloured in the sentiment for the second card with Stampin' Write Markers so that I could highlight the "Light " in Crushed Curry to stand out.


The third card was inspired by an excellent video on You Tube by The Serene Stamper HERE.
I really enjoyed using this set as you can do so many different techniques with it.

Special Reason Bundle


Here are some cards that we will be making at my Special Reason Card Class this month.
I love the versatility of this Bundle and the different techniques that you can use with it.
Pieces of Whisper White Card Stock were sponged and adhered under the flower die cut images in the first card.


The two flower stamps were inked up in Daffodil Delight and then I sponged some Calypso Coral on to the stamp before stamping it on the Card Stock.



The third card was cased from a video on You Tube HERE.
The colour used is Flirty Flamingo with Pear Pizzazz.
The sentiments in this stamp set pair up well together.


The last three cards show you the  ways in which you can use the Dies and Stamps to get a different look for the large flower.


Mediterranean Moments


I have really enjoyed colouring the four images from the Mediterranean Moments Stamp Set.
Dapper Denim is the colour of the first card base.
I used the Watercolour Crayons for this card.


I cased the second card from a video on You Tube HERE
The image is stamped in clear Versamark Ink and then embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.
It was then coloured using an Aquapainter with Pear Pizzazz and Tip Top Taupe Ink with a tad of Crumb Cake.
The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set.


In the above card the Sahara Sand card base was embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and then sponged with Crumb Cake Ink. The image was coloured in with an Aquapainter and Inks.


The Brick Wall Embossing Folder was used again on a Cherry Cobbler Base for the last card.
A stamp from the Timeless Textures Set was used for the The Sahara Sand frame.
