Watercolouring Happiness Abounds with Ink Refills

It’s been a little while since I did some watercolouring which is one of my favourite techniques. This beautiful flower from the Happiness Abounds stamp set was just perfect for getting back into it.

I used the Colour Inkspiration CI136 challenge photo as inspiration with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #570.

I watercoloured the flowers in Blushing Bride and the leaves in a combination of the greens. This card is just so ‘me’ and I really enjoyed creating it. Watch the video tutorial to get all the tips I shared.

    Clear Block Technique with Touched my Heart Stamp Set


    Hope you are enjoying a relaxing weekend. Sometimes, it’s a bit of catching up on things isn’t it? Today, I’m sharing with you a card using the beautiful Touched My Heart stamp set.

    You can find this set on Page 187 of the Annual Catalogue. It’s a Host Stamp set and you can use Stampin’ Rewards to purchase this stamp set. Any individual orders or workshops over $250 earn Stampin’ Rewards which can be used to purchase Host sets or anything else in the catalogue. You can also use Stampin’ Rewards to purchase the Starter Kit which gets you a minimum of 20% off all future orders. 

    I’ve been creating a few cards with the Touched my Heart stamp set lately and love the beautiful flourish style, leaf images in it.  Yesterday, I created a couple of cards using this stamp set in my Online Workshop. You can view the video in my Online Workshop and Events Group. I also have a special ordering special available until Tuesday 21st July so you don’t want to miss out on that!

    I started of by creating the Colour Blocking technique on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock.

    Colour Block Technique

    • Apply Crumb Cake ink pad directly to the bottom of Clear Block
    • Apply Cinnamon Cider ink pad directly to the centre of Clear Block (wipe off any that may have applied to the top)
    • Turn block so the top is now at the bottom. This will help you you to apply the Real Red on the top 1/3 of the Clear Block. 
    • Keep the Clear Block flat on your desk or hold it flat. Then spritz with water using a spritzer.
    • Take Clear Block and apply directly to chosen cardstock.

    I heat embossed the leaf in White Embossing Powder and then added some extra leaves in Cinnamon Cider. This is such a beautiful colour combination which has been inspired by the Colour Inkspiration Challenge CI81.

    I was inspired by our CEO Sara Douglas who showed us some fun techniques with our Embossing Paste in her FB live last week. It’s been a while since I’ve had fun with Embossing Pastes so I thought I’d get into it. 

    Here I’ve added a drop of Real Red ink refill to the embossing paste and applied it through the mask to create a background. 

    Several ribbons combine to embellish this card. I separated the cheese cloth style ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim to create the strands in my cluster of ribbon trim. 

    You can make this card using the products I have listed at the bottom of this post. Click on any of the products to be taken direct to my Online Store. Until 3rd August, every $90 you spend will earn you a $9 Bonus Days voucher which you can spend in August. All orders of $50 or more receive Stamping Flair Loyalty Points.

    Best Friend’s Day #ci78

    Today is Best Friend’s Day and I created a card inspired by the colour combination at Colour Inkspiration Challenges for it. Gray Granite is such a lovely neutral shade and combined with Blushing Bride and Early Espresso it really is a beautiful combination. 

    I added a die cut layer from the Many Medallion dies in Gray Granite onto my Gray Granite card base. 

    Layering  in the same colour adds depth to a project. Don’t you just love the detail in the die? You need to run the die a couple of times through your die cutting machine to make sure all the little bits come out of the cut out piece. Using the Die Brush Tip from the Take Your Pick Tool makes life so much easier.

    The Whisper White panel has been stamped with images from the Lovely You stamp set. These images are great for creating background panels. This stamp set comes bundles with the Pick a Punch which create 6 types of tags/labels. Purchasing items marked as a bundle in the catalogue saves you 10% on the price. The sentiment is also from the Lovely You stamp set and is perfect for a special friendship for Best Friend’s Day.

    You can get the Many Mates Bundle or the Lovely You bundle – FREE or you can choose any other bundle you like. See details below.

    Colour Inkspiration CI#74 Easter Bunny

    Colour Inkspirations #74 Easter card

    Easter is next week and for my first time playing along with the Colour Inkspiration challenge I wanted to make an Easter card. Our colour palette this week is Night of Navy, Whisper White, Basic Gray and Mango Melody which is inspired by the photo below.

    Colour Inkspiration #74

    I’ve used the Welcome Easter stamp set and combined it with the flower and leaves from the To a Wild Rose bundle. This is the first time I’m using both these stamp sets. 

    I created the background panel by stamping the second flower image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set right around the border. This is a really fun way to use your stamps and create interesting backgrounds. 

    Pigment Sprinkles used with a Patterned mask on a Label with Aqua Brush

    For the label I used a mask and Pigment Sprinkles. While holding the mask in place, I used an Aqua Painter to spread water around the open areas of the mask. Then I sprinkled the Mango Melody Pigment Sprinkles, helping it along with the Aqua Painter. I dabbed the excess off with a tissues (because I was impatient!). If you have time, leave it to dry by itself. A second label was die cut from Basic Gray cardstock and cut in half to layer behind the Pigment Sprinkle label.

    I tied in the background stamping by adding a separate die cut flower as the focal point, along with a fussy cut bunny with her cute flower in her ear.

    Products and measurements for this card are listed at the bottom of this post. If you live in Australia and would like assistance with any projects or making an order, I would love the opportunity to assist you.
