Using Rose Wonder with Blends! 

I made this card with the new Blends alcohol ink markers. I started in the centre area of the flower and used dark Calypso Coral then added in light Calypso Coral graduating to dark Pink Pirouette and finally light Pink Pirouette then when finished adding colour to the flower I went over and highlighted with the colour lifter. For the leaves I coloured each section with light Calypso Coral and went over with light Old Olive and then shadowed with dark Old Olive and once again highlighted with the colour lifter. The whole flower is then surrounded with the Ivory marker. This is just one of those happy experiments which worked out just as intended.

Three sets from the 2017 Holiday catalog!

It would seem Santa has to wash his sooty outfit on the fly my goodness what a sight. I used 3 die sets and the Santa’s Suit Stamp Set and if you just see that one set honestly is cuteness overload then you understand what I’m saying. I’m just really good at complicating things. When I started stamping I couldn’t even get a decent image with one try and even now sometimes wonder if I even know what I’m doing but now I’m hooked and will be quite willing to spend 7 hours on one card. Although most don’t even take an hour. I’m just that crazy I guess. Just love a challenge.

Touches of Texture searching for art. 

Sometimes I don’t feel so inclined to use any great layers or embellishments ie bling to make a card. Instead I just have a need to dig for my inner artist and just use inks and paper. This is done with a Whisper White sheet of card stock and sponged with Berry Blast, Tranquil Tide, and Lemon Lime Twist inks as well as Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a sponge dauber for the edges as well as to stamp all the images. Touches of Texture was my main stamp set but hello came from the Eastern Palace stamp set. It is matted in Berry Blast and Basic Black. 

Nature Sings 

Some serious fussy cutting here! No I didn’t have any dies to cut these reindeer from the Nature Sings stamp set. Once again I started with painting on ink this time the colours were Pool Party and Powder Pink and then stamped on the trees with Garden Green and pulled out my Lovely as a Tree stamp set and put the one tree in the foreground with Tranquil Tide ink. Then I stamped Soft Suede card stock with Chocolate Chip ink then stamped them on the paper with Chocolate Chip ink to place the deer and glued my fussy cut deer on top finally I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink and matted with Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide card stock.

Watercolours and Carols of Christmas 

Carols of Christmas bundle is the starting point as far as the idea went but first I had to set the background using ink in Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Pool Party. I used my Aqua Painters for painting on the ink. I visualized it with silver foil and I want some contrast foil so for the deer I used copper foil. The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and embossed in silver and comes from the Nature Sings stamp set. I love the feeling of depth this card has! I love the simple fact that no matter how often I might decide to replicate this card no two cards can ever be exactly the same. 

Colourful Seasons with Repurposed Move Me Framlits 

I repurposed the Move me framlits on this Colourful Seasons Bundle card and did it in Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo and Chocolate Chip as the colours along with gold foil paper. I saw this weaving idea on Pinterest but always in blue on silver for Christmas but thought it a nice warm thought to try Calypso Coral with gold. And Colourful Seasons just seemed perfect to go with it.
