On my desk, I have a pile of scraps from projects. These are not cardstock or paper scraps. It’s background scraps or bits of watercoloroured cardstock, an extra die cut leaf, a stamped image, some fussy cut images I had extras of. Many times I may not even remember when I created it or the colours I used for it but it comes in handy.
I had stamped a few of the images from the In the Moment stamp set on an A6 size card piece ready to colour whenever I felt like it. This too was in my scrap pile. When in a bit of a creative funk, colouring in can help the process.
I enjoyed the colouring process and used a combination of Stampin’ Blends to achieve the shading.
I followed the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #582 to complete my card and used Mint Macaron and a feature colour in a bit of a farewell to one of my favourites.
This card would be great to give Mum for Mother’s Day (which is just a few weeks away). After all, Mum would just love a moment to sit, read a book and relax on her day.

What a fun challenge we have for our Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop this month. To be fair, I think I say that every month but… this month, it’s more in-house with us playing along to our team’s favourite colours.
If you are new to this hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators sharing our love for papercrafting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. So sit back and enjoy your trip around the world.
Each of our team had to nominate our favourite colour and this is what our beautiful leader, Angie Mckenzie has put together. Don’t all the colours look so beautiful together?
So our project had to include at least three of these colours. We could choose from Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, Pale Papaya, Petal Pink, Rich Razzleberry, and Starry Sky.
Can you guess who picked which colour I picked?!? I’d have to guess too because I can’t remember! It would be a very close tie between Pool Party and Coastal Cabana and depending on my mood on the day it fluctuates. So I used them both on my project. In fact, I was able to incorporate quite a number while colouring this image.
I chose the In the Moment stamp set as today is International Women’s Day. This set has 3 images of women and is great for colouring in.
I started off by colouring the dress in Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends with some added detail using the Early Espresso Watercolour Pencil. The hat and belt were coloured in Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. The bench was coloured with some Natural Tone and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends with added details using Watercolour Pencils.
I die cut the image using the Stylish Shapes circle die then fussy cut around the girl. A second circle was die cut, on which I blended Pool Party ink with a Blending Brush. The image was then mounted on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I wanted to create a little beachy atmosphere on my card so I added the clouds and palm leaves which were die cut from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, Then I blended Bermuda Bay ink to add some gradation to it.
I used our new Irresistible Blooms stamp set to heat emboss the flower on Shimmery White Cardstock. Then I watercoloured it in Rich Razzleberry ink. I fussy cut the flower and layered it to create depth. This coordinated with my Rich Razzleberry wine glass coloured with Watercolour Pencils. I love being able to mix and match our various colouring mediums.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world. I hope you have been inspired by what I have shared.

Hello and welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. We are a group of crafters around the world who love Stampin’ Up! products and on the second Wednesday of each month, you will get to enjoy what we have to share. Thank you to Angie Mackenzie for all the organization you put into this month after month. I love taking part in this hop and enjoy all the themes that you come up with.
This month our theme is to Case(e) a project from the Mini Catalogue and switch out the stamp set and colour. I’ve chosen the box on Page 41 to case.
I took the layout and made it into a card using the In the Moment stamp set. I fussy cut the image and coloured with Stampin’ Blends then added the girl onto the leafy die cut from the Birds & More dies. The cushions were stamped and cut out from Subtles DSP.
To create the Fresh Freesia and White panel I used some Fresh Freesia card scrap and cut it into 1cm strips. I added it across a panel of Basic White cardstock (I eyeballed this as I couldn’t be bothered measuring it!). This is a great way of using up scraps of both cardstock and DSP and creates interesting backgrounds.
To finish off I added some of the White Frayed Ribbon which I cut in half (which frayed it even more).
Currently, every $90 you spend in store will earn you a free Sale-A-Bration reward. This offer is available until 28th February. All products I have used are listed at the end of this post.
