Bodacious Bouquet

This stamp set arrived at my house yesterday morning, so what better stamp set to teach an embossing workshop than with Bodacious Bouquet. [photopress:IMG_3157.JPG,full,pp_empty] To be able to emboss dye ink, I’ve first stamped in Versamark, then into the dye inkpad.  This is the first time I’ve done it and I was happy with the…

Be Happy

This card is based on another I’ve seen (I’m sorry I’ve forgotten where) I’ve changed the colours and embellishments. [photopress:IMG_3134.JPG,full,pp_empty] The colours are Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Taken with Teal.  The orginal card had a button stitched onto the flower, but as I dont have any I’ve stamped a solid circle and then…

Sassy Stems

This card was inspired by Trudee Sauer.  I’m back to teaching full cards at Linc n Learn so there will probably be a reasonable amount of inspired based cards on here, sometimes it’s just too much to create on your own. [photopress:IMG_3135.JPG,full,pp_empty] The colours are Cranberry Crisp, Mellow Moss and Not Quite Navy.  The brads are…

Touch of Nature

This card is for the Sketch Challenge on the Elite Challenges site.  I set these challenges, so thought it was time for me to make one.  The sketch comes from www.scrapbook.com [photopress:IMG_3056.JPG,full,pp_empty] Yes I have used these colours before here and here, the colour wheel chose them again. I’ve coloured using an aquapen and watercolour paper

Gift Card Wallets

Play time again, with more new goodies.  I must say, I’m pretty impressed with the Watercolour Paper, yes it is quite expensive, but WOW, nice to work with. I’ve made a few Gift Card Wallets using the Sassy Stems for the belly band. [photopress:IMG_3027.JPG,full,pp_empty] I’ve used Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and the Watercolour Paper (which…

With Sympathy

My husbands’ 2nd cousin passed away overseas very suddenly.  My first sympathy card for his parents.  I’ve cased this one from the new 2007/08 idea book and catalogue.  The original was in vanilla, which I dont have YET.
