Floral Statements using the Stamparatus

Hello and welcome to the weekend and todays makes!
Today's card is another I made four of at the same time (again :-)) and today I used the Floral Phrases stamp set. I love this pretty sentiment set! For this make I used Pink Pirouette (which is just retired) but you could easily swap it out for Powder Pink and teamed it with Tranquil Tide to make these cards...
 I used my Stamparatus to stamp the image in Memento black ink then again using Versamark before heat embossing it with clear powder so they were super easy to watercolour.
 I used an aqua painter and matching ink pads to colour, letting the first coat dry (speed it up with a heat tool if you like) before adding a second lot of watercolour on thick white card.
 These cards make such a fab, bold statement but because it's just one stamp they are surprisingly quick to make! Bonus!
Well, I do hope you liked todays cards? I'll be back tomorrow with all the SU! news for July!
Thanks for looking today,

Statement of the Heart Notecards

Today I'm sharing some cards i made with the Statement of the Heart stamp that was available last month in the bundle offer. I love this sentimetn and after 8 years I still love sharing what I love with you here :-)
These card were super simple to make as they use the Memories and More cards and SU! have just introduced correct sizes notecards to fit them! Gotta love that!!
 I used four different designs of cards and stamped using the Memento ink pad. I made a simple scrunched flower using the 1+1/8" scalloped circle punch.
Drop a few pearls on and you're done!
Well, that's all for today, I hope you've enjoyed today's makes and I'll be back soon with more :-)

Animal Outing with a FREE Ombre Frames Tutorial

Hello and welcome to another challenge week with Inspire. Create. Challenges.
This week it's a theme challenge (challenge #21) and it should be one most of us can follow fairly easily as it's simply "Kids."
As this can be interpreted in so many ways, I'm sure you will make something in the next fortnight that you could use to join us and we'd love if you shared it with us at the challenge :-)
So, this challenge was perfect for me this week as it was our grandson's birthday a couple of week's ago so I saved this card to share, ready for this challenge and I even did a super quick photo tutorial too! I used the Animal Outing stamp set (again) with the number dies (so sad they retired) and my blends to make this DL sized card...
 This Rhino is sooo cute! I wanted to make the two panels pop some more so I added a little frame. I then used my blends to make the ombre effect and as I made the second frame I made a little photo tutorial for you too...
 I used the stitched and regular square framelits and light and dark pool party pens, although I'm sure it would work in just about any colour you wanted :-)
Any questions please do ask.
 I added a strip of embossed card across the centre using the Petal Burst folder, wrapped in (retired) pool party twine.
And a few sequins always make any card just a little more special!
So, that's my "Kids" card for you today! I was super happy with the end result and so was our grandson, well for a few minutes anyway, until he went back to his Duplo ;-) Love him x
To see what the rest of the super clever DT have come up with do visit the Inspire. Create blog HERE! I'm sure you'll be amazed at their brilliant ideas! And we'd LOVE it if you shared your creations there too :-)
Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be back soon with another make.

Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper coloured with Blends.

Hi there,
Today's card uses the new Delightfully Detailed laser-cut paper again. This time I have used my Blends to colour the circle paper piece. I love this paper as it is but how fab is it to add colour and totally change the whole look of this paper! See more examples of this paper HERE. This is one of the card shaped pieces from the pack which I've backed with the new colour Balmy Blue after colouring...
 Some of the Blends are now back in stock and I'm led to believe that more of the new colours are coming soon. Yay!
 And topped with a sentiment from Floral Phrases, heat embossed in white to finish.
Well, that's all for today, I'll be back soon with more crafty goodness :-D
Thanks so much for looking and I hope you enjoyed today's make?
