With the new catalogue, comes new In Colours, so we are going to showcase those colours, and oh they are gorgeous!!
Today, we are showcasing Rococo Rose.
It is the darker pink in my card, but goes so beautifully with Blushing Bride, so I have used them together.
My card features a gorgeous new stamp set, called New Wonders, it is one of the exclusive Host sets, and is just perfect for some watercolouring.
First I stamped the image using Black Stazon ink, onto some Shimmery White cardstock, and then I have coloured it using ink pads and an Aqua Painter.
Isn’t she just too cute?
If you would like to see some more inspiration using Rococo Rose, head on over the Cathy’s blog where she has a list of everyone taking part.
Just the one card today, featuring the very cute Pretty Kitty Stamp set, which is retiring tomorrow.
I have watercoloured around Kitty, leaving her white, and coloured the flowers using either Stampin’ Blends or Stampin’ Markers, and used the Gingham Gala papers (also retiring tomorrow) from the Occasions Catalogue.
Inspiration for this card came from the current sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.
Happy Sunday stamping!
I have enjoyed sharing with you all the different cards I have made using the Hugs From Shelli Paper Pumpkin kit, I’m sure there are a lot more I can come up with, but since today is the last day it is available to buy, I will share something different after today.
Both of these cards use some of the patterned paper that was on the inside of the envelopes.
I was trying to get the flowers on the pink card to curve around a little more but it didn’t quite work out, but it’s still pretty.
The flowers have been stamped with Stazon ink and coloured with an Aqua Pen and ink pads, and then I fussy cut the flowers.
Yes, I did fussy cut all of those flowers! Actually it didn’t take all that long, and I find colouring and cutting quite relaxing.
Well, it’s Friday afternoon here in Australia, and I have a new stamp set which arrived this afternoon, so I am going to have some fun playing with that over the weekend.
I hope you have a crafty weekend, too.
Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects with an Easter theme.
Don’t forget, sale-a-bration ends on March 31st! There is still time to earn free product with purchase or even join our Stampin’ Up! team. Ask any of the girls on the hop for more details.
This is my first Blog Hop with the Art With Heart group.
I haven’t taken part in a Blog Hop in a very long time, so this should be heaps of fun!
I have used the gorgeous Fable Friends stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue, along with the equally gorgeous Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper, to make a card and two cute little “Bag in a Box”.
Bunny has been coloured using ink pads and an aqua painter.
Here is bunny up close.
And the boxes are just so quick and easy to make, using the Envelope Punch Board.
Perfect for a few Easter eggs.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Tina Gillespie.

This week’s challenge at The Male Room, is “Under Water”. Hmmm too many ideas….. 🙂
I decided to keep this one quite simple today, and play with some new toys products.
I have used ink with an Aqua Brush and gone very quickly over the white cardstock to give a nice washy watercolour look for the background, and then stamped the lovely shell from By The Tide stamp set.
The sentiment is made using a bundle currently available in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalogue – the “Happy” from the Hello You Thinlits and the stamped “Birthday” from the Crazy About You stamp set.
In my previous post I promised to show you the card that I made which matched the gift cards, and I apologise for the delay, I have been quite unwell over the last little while. However, here it is:
These were made in exactly the same way as the gift cards, so a watercolour wash first for the background, then stamping the image from Moon Lake stamp set with black Memento Ink, and I have coloured in the image with Copics markers. I have also stamped the image without any colouring onto the envelope and also the inside of the card.
Just a quick Stampin’ Up! announcement for all of my lovely customers, regarding Blendabilities:
“We are experiencing a quality issue with our Blendabilities product line. Except for the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad Refill (item #133456), all other item numbers have been turned off; this includes Blendabilities Sale-A-Bration item numbers.”
If you are one of my customers with Blendabilities on backorder, please contact me. More information will be available next week.
A scrapbook page or Project Life page? A picture? A covered notebook? Or in this case, some gift tags…..
This week’s Crafty Boots Challenge is to make a project, any project as long as it is not a card. I feel that I piked out a bit on this one, since my gift tags are pretty close to a card, so I will have to come up with something very different for next week.
My tags use the lovely stamp set called Moon Lake. Before stamping the image, I did a very light wash of watercolouring just using ink and an aqua brush, then stamped over it using Memento Black Ink. The images have then been coloured using Copics Alcohol markers.
I have made a card to match the gift cards, which I will share with you tomorrow.
For more project ideas for this challenge, you can see what the rest of the Design Team have made this week by clicking here.
Happy stamping! And crafting…..
This week’s challenge at Just Add Ink is this gorgeous bright and cheerful photo, full of rainbow colours.
So I really had to use a rainbow on my card 🙂
I adore this cute little image from the Life’s Adventure Hostess stamp set, and thought he would look quite cute sitting under a rainbow. I have coloured the image using a Blender pen and ink, then stamped the rainbow using the Work of Art stamp set. Then there are just a few small finishing touches which are not so easy to see in the photo….. I have done some paper piercing around the edge but only where the cardstock is still white, so not over the rainbow. And then added some rain drops using Crystal Effects.
Hope your weekend is crafty!
So many ideas, so little time! So, I thought I show you some new goodies which will be available at the end of the month in the Holiday catalogue – yep, lots of Christmas goodies!
The very cute Santa is from a new Photopolymer stamp set called Get Your Santa On. As you can see, Stampin’ Up! polymer stamps stamp up nice and clearly, and are really easy to use. Santa has been coloured using Blendabilities. I have also used a new patterned paper and the gorgeous punch which punches out all those little stars along the bottom. Love it!
Make sure you head on over and check out all the inspiration and great ideas using the sketch at Just Add Ink.
Blendabilities are the newest and hottest product to arrive from Stampin’ Up! I love the fact that, as a demonstrator, I get to pre-order lots of goodies from the new catalogue. Blendabilities are an alcohol based marker, a little like Copics (only better!) and I was so excited when I heard that Stampin’ Up! were bringing these out.
I have had a quick play with a set, and just wanted to share with you my first attempt. So, here is a bit of sneak peek of some new products that will be available to you soon.
The stamp is called Blended Bloom, isn’t it gorgeous? And it’s fantastic for learning to use the Blendabilities.
Not sure if you would consider this to be Watercolouring, it is like watercolouring only with alcohol based ink. So I am going to add my card to this week’s challenge with the girls at Just Add Ink. Hope they don’t mind that I did Alcohol Colouring!
Well, I am off to play with my new toys! 🙂
