Monochromatic Moody Mauve – Cottage Wreaths

All set with about 3/4 sheet of A4 Moody Mauve Cardstock I was ready for this challenge! I had to get creative with ink today for the Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Insta Hop. I must say, I’ve been a bit moody with Moody Mauve. When I first saw it in the Annual Catalogue, I thought this would be my most used In-Color BUT it didn’t turn out that way. Hence the low supply of Cardstock.

Crafty Collaborations Monochromatic Instahop - Moody Mauve

As I looked through my stamp sets, the idea of a Moody Mauve wreath really appealed to me and then I had to decide whether I wanted to stamp it or die cut it out of my 3/4 sheet of A4 Cardstock! Well, I did both and actually preferred the stamped version for this card.

Now I had to decide what was going to happen with that wreath and I went with a shimmer bow – a double one. Both were die cut from Bubble Bath Shimmer Cardstock. The bottom one was coloured with the Dark Moody Mauve Stampin’ Blend.

TIP: When colouring the Shimmer Cardstock with Stampin’ Blends hold it still with the Take Your Pick Tool. When you hold it with your fingers the colour keeps rubbing off. Leave it to dry and then it will be good to go.

MOODY MAUVE HEARTS
  • With a Water Painter and Moody Mauve ink refill, create a wash on Fluid 100 Cardstock
  • Add some darker sections as well
  • Leave to dry
  • Take the Painted Lavender stamp set and using the image with stems, ink up just the bottom part of the stems with Versamark ink
  • Stamp several of these lines randomly across the watercoloured Cardstock
  • Heat emboss in Silver
  • Die cut with heart from Cracker & Treat Box dies

I interspersed these hearts and some others die cut from Naturally Gilded Specialty DSP to add the silver highlights. A silver bow completes my Moody Mauve creation. I hope you have enjoyed it.

Country Wreath Christmas – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

I’ve drifted a touch from Nostalgic November and haven’t used any retired products for Day 9 of the 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge. However, I could stretch it and say I did use Blueberry Bushel which is a returning colour so it’s a bit nostalgic!

I cut a Kraft notecard into 2.5 cm strips and glued it to a Basic White panel to create the background. I like the country charm the Kraft cardstock adds to the Cottage Wreath. This background style is a great way of using up Cardstock scraps as well.

Both layers of wreaths were die cut from White Cardstock. The base layer was coloured with the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. For the top layer I sponged Old Olive and Blueberry Bushel inks using a Sponge Dauber. Then I added some moore colour with Stampin’ Blends. I also added some Blueberry Bushel sponging on the bottom layer. This created a fuller wreath with varying colours.

The bow was coloured with the Light Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Blend to coordinate with my card.

Step into Christmas Day 14 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

For our Step into Christmas theme of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge I have pretty much taken a literal look at this.

One of the first decorations that go up in our home is the wreath on the front door and any visitor has to step through our front door to come in, hence the ‘step into Christmas’. I stamped a background using Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce ink and then die cut the wreaths from this piece of Cardstock. I felt the wreath really pops against the Black timber background.

A few splatters of White embossing and a simple sentiment completes this card which I would say has a bit of a modern twist with it’s Black base.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Quick & Easy Watercoloured Wreath

I created this card during the Stampin’ Up! demonstration for World Cardmaking Day. The wreath was created by watercolouring two squares of Shimmery White Cardstock with Old Olive ink and then die cutting the wreaths from them. This is such a quick and effective way to create this sweet card.

Opt out the ‘hello’ for a Christmas sentiment and you could make a batch of these in quick time for the Christmas season.

Our blog hop will include a variety of bundles from our current catalogues.

I die cut 2 base wreaths and an outline wreath from Basic White Cardstock. Then I blended Parakeet Party and Shaded Spruce ink over them with the top wreath inked only in Shaded Spruce. Some ‘snow’ was added with White Craft ink splattered with a Water Painter.

The bow and leaves were die cut from the Gingham Cottage DSP and I blended Flirty Flamingo ink over the die cut pieces. The banner was die cut from Sweetest Christmas DSP. I went over the Real Red stripes with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend and then blended Flirty Flamingo ink over to coordinate with the colour palette.

To complete the card ve layered the Shaded Spruce card base with a panel of Basic White Cardstock which I blended with Shaded Spruce ink.
