Monochromatic Boho Blue – Softly Sophisticated

Hello and welcome to Boho Blue week. This is our weeky Instagram hop and I like to share the details of my project on my blog so you can recreate with the products I’ve used if it takes your fancy. Boho Blue is another one of my favourites. It’s a pretty and soft blue and quite calming. It’s part of our 2023-2025 In-Colors so I’m glad we’ve got another year with it.

For my main image I used the flowers from the Softly Sophisticated stamp set which is part of a stamp and embossing folder bundle. This bundle is a free earn during Sale-A-Bration with a $180 order.

I die cut the image out using the Perennial Postage dies and matte it onto a large Boho Blue die cut. Behind this image I added a sprig of leaves from the Artistic dies. I cut the leaves apart so I could arrange them the way that suited the layout.

A strip of Boho Blue Cardstock behind the leaves was blended with Boho Blue ink to create a darker variegated tone.

On the base I added some Let’s go Fishing Designer Series Paper which has Boho Blue as well as some other blues which worked with the monochromatic theme.

To complete my card I added a vellum butterfly for a soft feature and embellished it with Boho Blue gems.

Awow Blog hop – Let’s Take a Walk

Hello friend, Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop where every second Wednesday of the month we travel from New Zealand to Hawaii for some creative inspiration with our lovely team. This month’s theme is Let’s Take a Walk, so come with me for a walk and see where each of us stroll through.

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

I’m taking a walk down memory lane with my dear mum as my inspiration today. Back to the days where she is used to work in a radio broadcasting company called Back to the Bible Broadcast in Sri Lanka. She played the piano for the music department and she also corrected the English Bible correspondence courses there. I remember visiting her office many times and it was like one big family. As a child, all the adults were so kind and treated me like one of their own children and I still keep in touch with some of these people.

In my mum’s office she had a typewriter and my card has been inspired by that. Of course, the Just My Type stamp set was the perfect choice. This could be the reason I purchase every typewriter stamp set that comes out! Ironically, my father was a very speedy typist as well. At home, I remember mum typing letters on the old aerogramme paper and then she’d have carbon paper inbetween so she could keep a copy of it. Carbon paper – now that seems like a lifetime ago!

To create this card I watercoloured the background with Bubble Bath, Moody Mauve and Calypso Coral. The ink was left to pool heavier in certain areas as I wanted a deeper colouring. Moody Mauve, to my surprise, has been the colour I’ve used the least from our new In-Colours. I actually thought this would be my go-to but it hasn’t been like that. Using it extensively on this card may possibly be the turning of the corner for me with this colour.

Once the watercolouring was dry, I stamped some smaller flowers in Moody Mauve on top on the right side. Although the images blend in, I really like the faint images of the flowers you can still see in the background.

The note pad paper was scrunched up for a textured finish. The main flower was inked up in Bubble Bath and then I added some Moody Mauve with a Sponge Dauber in the centre.

To break up the pinks I added some Soft Sea Foam leaves. As this card is a memory of my time spent with my mum, I added the panel at the back which was embossed with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder to depict her musical talent.

I hope you have enjoyed taking this stroll with me as I reminisced and shared with you a little bit about my family. Please follow our hop through for fabulous inspiration from our team. As you go through we would love for you to drop us a comment as we love hearing from you.

Next on our hop is Cheryll Miller. Hop along with me to see her beautiful creation.
