Nested Friends Birthday Wishes – Colour Palette #33

Happy Friday friends, So good to see the weekend just around the corner. Colour Palette #33 had a beautiful summer feel to it. I initially thought of using the Share a Milkshake bundle but changed course when it came down to creating!

I went with the Nested Friends stamp set and coordinating dies. You will find these products in the Online Exclusives category of the Online Store along with a range of other beautiful products that get regularly released into this collection.

I added Pebbled Path as my neutral colour to pull all the colours together.

I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps #SSC322 as m inspiration when creating this card for my FB Live.

As you will see in my video, I just continued adding bits and pieces to create more texture. The embossed white panel provides a nice contrast against the colours.

I hope you enjoy the tips I share and please consider subscribing to my channel to get notifications when I post new crafty inspiration.

Birthday Wishes Blue Bird – Nested Friends

What a beautiful colour palette I get to create with today, inspired by the colours at the Global Design Project Challenge #gdp405. I’ve featured the Nested Friends stamps and dies on this card. These products are part of our Online Exclusive products and are exclusively available in our Online Store.

I used the Simply Scored Tool and scored the Basic White Cardstock at 1cm intervals to create the background.

The bird was coloured in with Boho Blue and Wild Wheat Stampin’ Blends. Usually I would have added some lighter colours in there to blend it but as this was a colour challenge I had to find another way. So, I used a Blender Pen to add some Boho Blue ink refill to soften and blend the colour and achieved the look I was going for.

Although a Blender Pen is generally used on watercolour paper, used in small amounts, ensuring there is sufficient drying time, it works fine on Basic White Cardstock.

Frames die cut from Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper bring all the colours together, while a layer cut out from the same paper pack provides a textured Boho Blue matte layer. The Brushed Metallic Dots tone in with the Pebbled Path elements of my card and it’s one of my favourite embellishments.

I hope you have loved this card and find inspiration in what I’ve shared. If you would like more inspiration, make sure you sign up for my newsletter where I share an exclusive tutorial each week along with lots of other project inspiration and tips.

Have a wonderful week.

Nested Friends Anniversary Card – #FMS590

The Nested Friends stamp set didn’t have my heart at first glance. However, I liked the variety of sentiments in the set and ended up ordering it. I can tell you, I have got my money’s worth out of this set, especially with this bird, using it so many times.

I created a background for my card with Versamark ink which was heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I blended Misty Moonlight ink around the edges. Adding this to a card base which I applied the same technique of blending created depth for this tone on tone background.

My card was been inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. To form the strips I used the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper. This is a great sketch to use up those scrap pieces of patterned paper or cardstock I know you have lying around.

This pack of 12″ x 12″ papers is a bumper pack with 48 sheets in it. Usually selling for $53, during our June Designer Series Paper sale you can get it for $45.05.

The bird was stamped in Daffodil Delight and I added some detail with Watercolor Pencils. I used Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Balmy Blue and Early Espresso.

The berries and leaves were die cut from Basic White Cardstock and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Some extra shading was added with an Old Olive Watercolor Pencil. The smaller Soft Sea Foam die cut leaves were also individually highlighted the same way.

A small sentiment was added to flow in with the arrangement of sprigs whilst not detracting from the pretty paper.
