White Wash Water Colouring with In The Moment

I have been having so much fun using the In The Moment Stamp Set. In a previous blog post I showed how I used paper piecing to colour in the lady’s dress. If you missed that post you can see it here. In my Facebook live on Sunday, I showed how I water coloured the image using white washing.

Here are another couple of cards using the same technique

Nothings Better Than Cocktails

I posted a New Year’s card on the 30th December, (if you missed the post you can see it here), and I had a few people asking me how I had coloured the cocktails. It was really easy, I just used my sponge daubers to apply 2 different colours to my stamps!

I did a Facebook live to show how I did this. You can see the replay of the live below. You are welcome to visit my Facebook page and browse my other projects.

12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 11

It is hard to believe that next week will be Christmas! We have been in lockdown for so long, that it feels like the year has barely started. I have spent so much time at home, I feel like I haven’t done very much this year. Hopefully next year will have no lockdowns and life can start up again!

I am sure that by now, most of your Christmas gifts, cards and projects are organised. However, there are always the last minute things that need to be done, or the gift that you forgot to buy and now need to arrange.

If you have the Ombre Gift bags on hand, they make the perfect wrapping for a small item. A couple of weeks ago I participated in a customer only event with 15 other international demonstrators. The theme for this event was quick gift wrapping. I showed how to adapt the bags so that instead of a flat bag that is good for a card or gift card, you can use it to package a 3d item.

If you are one of my customers and are not part of Global SU Share Fair Facebook page, please let me know and I will send you an invitation. Below is the replay of my video. The other ladies in the group had fantastic gift wrapping ideas so it is worth checking out all the videos.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Gift Packaging

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is “Gift Packaging”. Whether you are still wrapping your Christmas presents, or giving a birthday or just because present, I am sure that you will find inspiration here.

This project was inspired by Debbie Blake, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Western Australia. All that you need to make this is a square piece of DSP (this one uses Beauty of the Earth DSP) and a library clip. To make it, all you need to do is fold your paper!

If you use Christmas paper, you can tie a ribbon through the library clip and it can double up as a Christmas tree ornament. These are photos showing the top and bottom of the bag

Here is a quick video which will explain how to fold the paper

Be sure to complete the hop to see all the wonderful ideas that we have to share with you. The next stop is Annette. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month.

12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 10

I recently took part in a Facebook event which was focused on Christmas projects. My project is a gift box which is filled with tags and notelets. It uses the Whimsy & Wonder suite which is retiring. The stamps and dies are still available, but unfortunately the DSP is sold out. You can use any DSP that you have on hand to make up the project. It does take a bit of time to complete the project, but the results are worth the effort. I have given a few boxes as gifts and the recipients have been super excited to receive them.

Here is a Facebook live video to make the box

Here is the video to make the tags and notelets to go inside the box

Blue New Year!

Thank you for joining us for the November Blogging Friends hop. The theme for this hop is “Blue”. Projects feature monochromatic projects in different shades of blue.

As soon as I saw the new Simply Marbelous DSP which is one of the Sale-A-Bration items which is redeemable from 3rd January, I knew that I wanted to use it to make a starburst card.

This paper is beautiful and comes in shades of blue, green, yellow, pink, purple and grey. The alternate pieces are the Ombre Specialty Paper.

The video below is one I did using the ombre paper from an earlier Sale-A-Bration, but you will be able to see the technique.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone has a fun and creative weekend. Be sure to hop around and see what everyone has created.
