I shared a card recently where I coloured on the reverse side of a sheet of Vellum, using Stampin’ Blends. The post is here if you would like to check it out.
Today, I have used Vellum again, but it’s a little different.
I have coloured on the reverse side of the Vellum sheet from the Magnolia Lane Memories and More kit, but this time I have used ink from the ink pads along with a Blender Pen, apart from the leaves which were coloured with Stampin’ Blenders.
It does give a softer look, but the real reason….. because I don’t have the colours that I wanted in Stampin’ Blenders, but I do have the ink pads.
I have layered the Vellum over Petal Pink this time, instead of white which I used last time.
The pretty patterned paper with the gorgeous Magnolia flower on the side, is cut from one of the Memories and More cards.
I’m loving the look of the Vellum, so soft and subtle.
I have used the sketch challenge over at Global Design Project for my inspiration for this card today.
I received a whole heap of gorgeous new Designer Series Papers today, part of a paper share which I was involved with, which means I have all of the new DSP to play with!
I know what I’m doing with my weekend.
There’s a lot of concentration happening here, however I think the mess on the table tells the full story!
We had heaps of crafting fun, chatter and laughter, as well as playing with some new goodies at my New Catalogue Launch over the weekend.
Here are the cards that everyone got to create.
Firstly a quick and easy card, just stamped but showcasing how beautiful the large magnolia stamp is, from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.
Everyone got to choose a different colour, so all the cards were a little different.
My card is in the colour, Flirty Flamingo.
Then the real creativity started to happen, using the Magnolia Lane Memories and More kit.
This was the sample I made, but again, everyone got to choose the Memories and More cards and elements that they wanted to use and put them together, so they all turned out very differently.
I love the way the Memories and More kits can be easily turned into beautiful cards, as well as scrapbook pages and pocket pages. I have made a couple of those up as well and will share them with you in another post.
This week’s Just Add Ink challenge is to use the photo up on their blog as inspiration.
I loved the colours, and decided to use those as my inspiration. Since it’s the middle of winter here, some bright yellow is nice and cheery.
My card uses one of the printed Vellum sheets that comes with the Magnolia Lane Memories and More card. I have coloured the Vellum on the reverse side using Stampin’ Blends, in Old Olive and Daffodil Delight – light Daffodil Delight for the petals of the flowers and the dark one for the centres.
The Vellum is simply layered onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock to help the colours pop, but because the colouring is on the reverse side of the vellum, it stays lovely and subtle.
I love the effect!
I have left the card as simple as possible, wanting the flowers to be the focus of the card.
Then I’ve added a little flower which was fussy cut from one of the other sheets of Vellum in the pack, to the inside of the card.
I have heaps more projects to share now that I have some goodies from the new catalogue.
Hope you have a crafty weekend – mine will be!
