Create a Gingham Pattern – Cheerful Daisies

Ah, Gingham – I just couldn’t resist the challenge over at Just Add Ink Challenges. It’s a Choose Two challenge from Flowers, Ginham and splatters but I picked them all. I’ve used the colours from TGIF Challenges as inspiration for this project.

The first element I created for this card was the gingham background using the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks. I blended Coastal Cabana and Lost Lagoon over the mask. When I create a background I generally create it on a quarter sheet of A4 Cardstock then cut it down to whatever size I need it. Any spare can be used to decorate the inside of your card and envelope or or another project.

I added some extra lines within the checks with a Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker. This month the Stampin’ Up! Creative Challege is to use Stampin’ Write Markers in a creative way. Our Markers are water based and there are many techniques and fun to be had with them. Join in the challenge and check out the inspiration at #creativechallengesu

I trimmed the gingham background and die cut the top with the Deckled Rectangles dies for a decorative border. Then I added a little strip of White Cardstock which was embossed with the Splatters (Stripes & Splatters) Embossing Folder. I inked up the Embossing Folder with Coastal Cabana and then ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. This filled in the colour in the gaps.

The daisies and leaves were die cut from Fluid 100 Carsdtock and watercoloured using ink refills. At first, I wanted to create some soft coloured daises but then went for the bolder colours and really loved the contrast. These daisies almost have a tie-dye look to them.

A White heat embossed sentiment die cut with the label from the Cheerful Daisies dies really pops against the pretty summery colours of this card.

Life is Sweeter With You – Colour Palette #14

For my card using Colour Palette #14 I’ve used the Share a Milkshake stamps and coordinating dies. I wanted to create a soft watercolour background for my summery card. Perhaps I’m trying to feel warm right in the middle of some chilly days here in Melbourne!

Watercolouring is one of my favourite techniques as I love the unpredictability of it and there really is nothing that can go wrong. It looks amazing whatever course the water takes.

Flirty Flamingo ink was blended over the Fluid 100 Cardstock using a Blending Brush. I spritzed it with water which created a stipple effect. Taking a Water Painter, I added some more ink and water to create more movement on the panel.

The Share a Milkshake stamp set images are designed for two-step stamping and I used Lemon Lolly stamped off to create the lighter colour on the glass. The ice cream was stamped in Flirty Flamingo stamped off.

Until 30th June you can get the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper along with a range of others on sale at 15% off . Shop our Designer Series Paper sale HERE.

I used the smallest hearts and blended Gorgeous Grape ink over it. Then each one was stamped with the small ice cream stamp to create the little dots for some texture. A fussy cut, heat embossed sentiment on Basic Black Cardstock adds a nice contrast against the softer colours. Oh and I’ve snuck in Pumpkin Pie with some sprinkle embellishments coloured with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend.

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.

    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.

    Sketchtember Challenge – Day 27 Sweetest Cherries

    Hello and welcome to Day 27 of my Sketchtember Challenge. I’m creating with the Sweetest Cherries bundle which includes a stamp set and coordinating punch. The sentiments in this stamp set are bold and in a more handwritten style font which make for creating fun projects.

    I created a vertical card which is not my norm as I felt the sketch was more to this style. So cut your Cardstock at 10.5 cm and score at 14.8 cm. The Gingham Cottage DSP is so versatile and I’ve been finding many uses for it with my projects of late.

    The cherries were stamped in Real Red ink and then I added some extra shading with Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Melon Mambo Watercolour Pencils. The leaves were punched from Mint Macaron Cardstockwhich I coloured with Old Olive and Coastal Cabana Watercolour Pencils to add shading and depth.

    I’ve been using my Watercolour Pencils more and just love how easy it is to create shading with this colouring tool. They are at a low price point and you can get 2 assortments. I’ve got them in a cup style container right on my desk so I can easily access them any time which makes me use it even more.
