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.

Check out the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge inspiration this entire month for lots of fun ideas and you can play along too. Products are available in my Online Store or by contacting me.

Cottage Wreath Christmas – Colour Palette #16

For Colour Palette #16 with Cherry Cobbler part of it I thought it was time for some Christmas in July cardmaking. Have you started on your Christmas cards already? Getting an early start is always good so you beat the rush.

I’ve used the Cottage Wreath stamp set and Country Wreaths dies to create a bit of a rustic look on this card.

I’m following the sketch at Freshly Make Sketches #593. I added some Basic Gray stripes using the Inked & Tiled stamp set to resemble the horizontal strip of the sketch. This has a wood texture which coordinated with the embossed background.

I added a panel of Petal Pink Cardstock blended with Petal Pink ink under the die cut Basic White panel, This gave it a bit of warmth and contrast against the embossed Petal Pink layer.

For a pop of colour, I coloured around the Early Espresso hearts with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend. Some Cherry Cobbler leaves die cut from the Christmas Pinecone dies were cut apart to fit inbetween. Then a few silver leaves, trim and pearls were added to balance out with the gray.

Want some more Christmas cardmaking inspiration? Join me for my Christmas in July card class which will be held on the 22nd of July. There is an in-person option as well as a mail-out kit option.

Sketchtember Challenge – Day 11 Shabby Chic Cottage Wreath

As I look at today’s card for Sketcchtember Day 11 I feel it’s a bit shabby chic. I didn’t start out aiming for this but the sheet I chose from the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper set the tone for it. Do you find the creative process taking you somewhere completely different to where you had planned? Isn’t that the fun of creating!

With a colour palette of Blushing Bride, Gray Granite and White this card has a soft look to it. I layered the vellum detailed wreath on a full wreath to make the script more visible. The wreath underweath was distressed on the edges with Gray Granite using a sponge dauber and I cut off any excess that was protruding in the centre from under the Vellum.

Some Blushing Bride leaves were stamped and die cut and interwoven with smaller silver leaves.

I added 2 small bits of ribbon with glue dots under the sprigs to give the effect of a bow. This gave it less bulk than having the knot of the bow in there (I did try it!). To top off my little foliage arrangement I added a cute bow which is part of the Country Wreath Dies.

The Cottage Wreath bundle is one of the bundle we’ll be using in our FREE VIRTUAL EVENT for World Cardmaking Day. See all the details below.
