Monochromatic Parakeet Party – Gorgeously Made

The Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Instahop is all about bright Parakeet Party. As this colour comes to it’s end, I’m liking it a bit more. It was not quite my favourite due to it’s brightness but I have toned it down today and I really like how it turned out.

Using the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks, I blended a light background, moving the mask around. This created a very fluid pattern.

I used the mask again to apply the Shimmery White Embossing Paste which had been coloured with the ink refill. I applied quite a lot of this as I really wanted a thicker texture to offset against my white leaf. Embossing Paste provides a quick way to get some fun textured effects.

I die cut the leaf 3 times and layered it to create some lovely depth while also making it more sturdy.

Adding a neutral Gray Granite matte layer of Cardstock added a cool tone to the card and softened the colour along with the Linen Thread bow.

Monochromatic Orchid Oasis – Softly Sophisticated

As I started creating this card for the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Instagram hop, I realised that I really hadn’t extensively used Orchid Oasis in it’s tenure as an In-Color. I’m glad I’ve got to spotlight it before it leaves us in a couple of months.

Every card has an idea that it starts with and for this one it was those little flowers from the Softly Sophisticated stamp set. These were stamped and fussy cut and although it took a little bit of time it was worth the effort. This stamp set is part of a bundle which is a Sale-A-Bration reward. You can get it free until 29th February with a $180 purchase.

For the background I blended ink through a mask and then stamped the words from the Quiet Meadow stamp set while the mask was in place.

Here’s how I created the splattered look behind the flowers.

FOCAL POSTAGE STAMP
  • Blend Orchid Oasis ink around the edges
  • Use a Water Painter to splatter Craft ink refill on the postage stamp, flicking the brush against the cap. The refill needs to be a little runny.
  • Using the Water Painter, add Craft ink around the edges of the die cut
  • Leave to completely dry
  • Stamp leaves and dots in Tuxedo Black ink

I added some ink blending on the matte layer which was embossed with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder. This created depth against the card base.

I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared with you today. Please visit my Online Store to shop for these products and remember to order in multiples of $90 to ensure you get your free Sale-A-Bration rewards. If you would like me to place the order for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

Cup of Cheer – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

For Day 20 it was a throwback to the 2022 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge. We could pick any of the challenges and have fun with it. I had this image from the Gift of Giving stamp set all coloured in from the class I had taken, so of course the ‘Cup of Cheer’ challenge was the obvious choice.

My card has been inspired by the sketch at Just Add Ink Challenges #682.

The check background I had in my box of spares and I think it works perfectly with this cup of hot cocoa. I felt that the card needed an extra pop of red so I added a small strip of Designer Series Paper behind to coordinate with my cup.

I hope you’ve liked my take on this challenge and if you like the Gift of Giving stamp set, make sure you add it to your Cart before it sells out.
