Celebrate at the Beach

Today I’m sharing with you a beachy card which has been inspired by the pretty colours of the Just Add Ink Challenge #659 and the theme at Paper Players Challenge #647.

I love this combination of Pretty Peacock, Coastal Cabana and Lemon Lolly and it inspired me to create this coastal card. I began with watercolouring the strip of shells on Fluid 100 cardstock. Then I fussy cut around the image to create the shell border adding some ‘sea foam’ with Embossing Paste. This is such a fun product to create beautiful texture. On top of this I added a strip of Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper which I cut along the guide of the printed torn paper. This added to the textured look of the waves.

With the Rays of Light stamp set I created a two-tone background of Coastal Cabana and Pretty Peacock. The base layer was blended with Lemon Lolly ink for some sunshine.

The sentiment had an open centre which needed something and using the Radiating Stiches Dies I created a sun which I coloured with a Blending Brush. A few little shells were die cut from Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper. This gave them some lovely (and easy) shading and finished the card off well.

If you live in Australia and would like to make this card, these products are available to be purchased from my Online Store. Alternately, you can contact me and I can place the order for you.

Thank you for stopping by and I’d love to hear what you think of this card so please leave me a comment.

Circle Sayings with Rays of Light Background

Don’t you love the soft colours of Colour Palette #9? It includes Lemon Lolly, a pretty yellow from our new range. I created a minimalist card to feature these pretty colours.

I’ve used the new Circle Sayings bunde and stamped the image twice in Balmy Blue and Lost Lagoon, fussy cutting part of it to layer the waves. This bundle has a range of sentiments and images which are great for creating quick cards.

The background has been created with the Rays of Light stamp set which is one I had been wanting for a while. I finally ordered it. The markings on the rays give it such a rustic look and added some white heat embossing along the edges to create a look of sea foam.

I hope you have enjoyed this creation and if you would like to play along with any of these colour palettes, just hop onto my Facebook page and add your project in the comments.

aWow Blog Hop – Something New, Something Used

Hello and welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday final blog hop for 2022. As the year comes to a close and we embark on a new year, our theme of Something New, Something Old is very fitting. We’re especially focusing on something we haven’t used in our stash.

Now, I do have stamp sets from our Annual catalogue which are yet to be inked up but I couldn’t go past using something from the upcoming January – April Catalogue for my new product. The By the Bay suite had me as I opened the catalogue. I have a fondness for all sets that are beachy and this suite was the first product I purchased from this catalogue.

The By the Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper provides my background and it is just stunning with it’s Gold and Pearl Foil detail.

The Basic Borders Dies create the waves. I die cut 2 sets – one in Basic White and one in Coastal Cabana which I blended with Night of Navy ink.

A sentiment heat embossed in Gold on Vellum adds softness to this card without detracting from the pretty paper.

I hope you have enjoyed this card using a sneak peek from the new catalogue and that it inspires you to use a yet-to-be-used product on your next creation.

You will be able to order the products from the By the Bay suite starting 5th January or you can add it to a Starter Kit today.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me in Melbourne. Next on our trip Around the World is the wonderfully talented Cheryll Miller.

Aussie Christmas Day 22 – 30 Day Christmas CardMaking Challenge

When I saw the colour challenge for the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge I immediately thought of summer. Living in Melbourne, we generally get to have a warm Christmas and I chose to feature the Sunkissed stamp set.

This stamp set is perfect for our Aussie Christmases with it’s beachy images. I repeatedly stamped the small shell image on Shimmer White Cardstock. Then I did some simple watercolouring with our challenge colours of Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide and Daffodil Delight. This formed a border for my slimline card.

For the top half of the card, I chose a large sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set which was heat embossed in White. Some gold ribbon was added to make this card a little more festive whilst looking summery.

The Sunkissed stamp set is on our Last Chance List which is effective 1st December. If you love it then add it to your order today. Last Chance products are only available while supplies last.

Sketchtember Challenge – Day 4 Best Dad

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful Dads in our world. It’s nice to have a day set aside to honour these special men in our lives and to also remember those who are no longer with us. Of course, my Sketchtember Challenge card for Day 4 had to be a Father’s Day card.

If it’s your first time visiting my blog, the Sketchtember challenge is my way of celebrating my birthday month with a sketch challenge each day of September. So please join in #sketchtemberchallenge

I’m also joining in with the Just Add Ink Challenge #619 which is a masculine theme and fit perfectly for today.

I was inspired by Susan Wong’s demonstration at the Crafty Carrot Co. to alter the colour of this DSP. I’ve used Bermuda Bay ink, blending it around the sides with a Blending Brush. This theme of the beach and surfboard was picked with my partner Adrian in mind. He loves the water and is very much an outdoors guy. I always find it easier to create a card when I have a person in mind I’m making it for – it’s the personal touch which you sure don’t get from a store bought card.

I used elements from the He’s the Man die cuts which are part of the Designer Series Paper. To tone the campvervan in with the background, I coloured the original image, which was Mint Macaron, with a Coastal Cabana Watercolour Pencil and added some shading with Basic Gray. The centre portion was coloured in Balmy Blue. I added Daffodil Delight with Calypso Coral highlights in the window to match the scene behind.

The tree stamps were coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers and then stamped. I used 2 shades of colours to highlight the trunk and leaves of the trees.

At the bottom of the die cut circle is another element from the DSP pack which was the torn edge strip. I added this to the bottom of my stamped piece of Cardstock and die cut the circle. Some Daffodil Delight and Pale Papaya were blended around the trees.

I’ve had fun creating this brighter look with the Hes the Man DSP and I love the way it works with the Paradise Palms stamp set too.

I hope you enjoy your day with your loved ones and have a wonderful week ahead.

It’s my birthday month and with every $50 you spend or every class you order during September, your name will be entered in the drawing to win a hamper valued at $200 from me. Winner will be drawn on 2nd October.
