Inspire. Create Challenge #46 New In Colours

And welcome to another challenge with Inspire. Create!
This week we have been playing with new In Colours. I have a couple of favourites already...
I'm loving Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray, probably because I added these colours to my Blends pens collection so they have had a little work out already ;-) 
So, I used the On To Adventure stamp set and I wanted to make the characters younger looking as I think they are fab but totally not just for retirement cards, here I made this a snappy, fun card...
 I used a baby wipe to swipe some of the new Seaside Spray ink at the bottom of some thick white card but I found that a little pae so I then dabbed the ink with the baby wipe before adding splatters with an aqua painter too.
I die cut the sentiment using the new Hand Lettered Prose dies after the ink was completely dry. I added two more layers of the sentiment into the spaces before topping with the coloured layer at the top.
 Then I topped the card with a Blends coloured chap from the On To Adventure set before adding a few (retired) star shaped enamel shapes which reminded me of a camera flash!
So, that's my make using some of the new In Colours but for a ton more inspiration please head over to the challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT have made. You can also upload your creations there too ;-)
Thanks so much for looking here today :-)

Inspire. Create challenge #45: Embossing

Hello and welcome to another week with Inspire. Create Challenges :-)
This week the theme is embossing. Now, you can use either dry embossing (folders) or heat embossing so using ink and embossing powder, or both, for this challenge. We would just like to see your makes with any kind of embossing!
As I'm sure you have noticed  I love to heat emboss so this was a no brainer for me.
 I wanted to use the Free As A Bird set in class this week so this is one of the card we made there too...
 I started with a watercolour wash on shimmer card and added a splatter of both same colour ink and some white shimmer paint.
We then added the leaves and flowers, made by stamping both and then watercolouring using the stamped images and a little extra of the same colour ink. This gives this loose washed look to the images.
TIP: Be careful not to over work the images as they'll lose their definition.
And yes, we fussy (hand) cut all these leaves and flowers but it didn't take toooo long... and the end result was worth it, don't you think? ;-)

I wanted a crisper image for the bird so I stamped in Memento ink and heat embossed it with clear powder so it was waterproof for watercolouring. While it's not absolutely necessary to heat emboss I prefer to when I want to work with a looser wash of ink, like here.
So, that's all from me for today, to see lots more "embossing" inspiration and to add your own make head over to the challenge blog HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today!
I'll be back soon with more, 'till then, happy stamping :-)

Hi There New Catalogue and a Fable Friends Card!

Hello and happy Saturday,
I am hopping on today to share botha  card and (finally) the link first to the new annual catalogue with you! It's a corker, for sure...
 I was made up to see that Fable Friends had stayed in especially as I still had this card to share with you ;-)
 I made a starburst background by sponging over the edge of a piece of scrap card from a pivot point behind the bunny.
 You might remember *this* card I made with the floral headband, I made this one as I loved making the first so much!
 The scalloped edge is from the "Stitched Be Mine" dies
 Love this Flirty Flamingo and Grapefruit Grove colour combo
So, that's it for today from me, I am still decorating at home but the end is in sight, hopefully...
Thanks for looking today :-)
