Before I start on my card today, I have two videos to share with you today! 
First up, I have a video showcasing all the brand new products that have just been released. If you enjoy close up looks at releases, this video is for you. It's linked below. 


-----------------------------------------------

Now onto the card I made for today. I used the Eskimo Kisses stamp set for todays project. As well as the Fireplace Dies from a previous release for the little 'brick' die cuts. 


To begin my card today I stamped out my images from Eskimo Kisses and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I die cut them out and set them off to the side. While I had my die cutting machine out I used the bricks dies from the Fireplace Die Set and cut them out a few times from some white cardstock.


Next up I took a piece of watercolour cardstock and ink blended some Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Ink into the centre. I then flicked on some water and dried it with a heat tool. I then added foam tape all along the backs of the bricks and adhered them randomly on the background. I added more foam to the images and popped them up in the centre too. For my sentiment I used the 'Eskimo Kisses' sentiment as well from the same set and white heat embossed it onto a strip of black cardstock. I popped that up on more foam tape and my card was complete. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed, got inspired and are enjoying seeing all the inspiration as much as I am.

Pretty Pink Posh STAMPtember Collaboration (Video)

Hi everyone, today I'm here to share with you my creation using the brand new set for STAMPtember from Pretty Pink Posh. It's called Pansies and it's super amazing. It compliments the rest of the flowers line Paulina has going and I really love this one. 

You can purchase this stamp set here if you would like too! 


To begin my card today I started off with stamping the cluster of Pansies off the edge of a piece of white cardstock twice on different corners. I then used a few masks to stamp some leaves as well. I then cut them out using some scissors and then coloured each piece in with Copic Markers. Once they were both coloured in I set them off to the side to work on the background. 

(Copic Markers Used: RV13, RV25, RV19 / RV69, V09 / BV02, BV04, BV08 / V12, V15, V17 / V25 / YG23, YG17, YG67 )


I pulled in my Misson Gold Watercolours and did a few quick swipes of a light grey colour in the centre of a watercolour paper panel. I then dried it off with a heat tool and adhered my images into each corner. Lastly, I stamped the 'Kindness Matters' sentiment from Simple Sayings: Kind into the centre and my card was complete. 

The video is linked down below.


Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and you're loving the new PPP STAMPtember set as much as I am. 

See you soon!

Hello Bluebird - Boo!

Hi friends, I have a card for Hello Bluebird today using the Halloween Fun stamp set. I also pulled in the Grassy Knoll Dies as well as the Gallery Frame #2 Dies to help set the scene.


To start off, I stamped out all my images onto some white cardstock and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then cut them out using the coordinating dies. I set them off to the side and while I had my die cutting machine out, I die cut the frame from Gallery Frame #2 out of some black cardstock and also the Grassy Knoll Dies from some green cardstock. I set them all off to the side and worked on my background. 

(Copic Markers Used: W5, W7, W9 / C00, C0, 0 / E53, E55, E57 / BV02, BV04, BV08 / YG01, YG23, YG17 / YR12, YR04, YR18 / Y11, Y13, Y15 / R00, R20)


For my background I used some Distress Inks. I pulled in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot and worked in a circular motion from the centre of the cardstock. I then flicked some water onto the background. I picked it up with some paper towel and dried the background with a heat tool. I then added foam tape onto the back of everything and adhered it into place. For the sentiment, I had stamped 'Boo' from the same Halloween Fun stamp set so I adhered that for my sentiment. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and got inspired. 

See you soon!

Hello Bluebird - Be Jolly

Hi friends, today I'm here for Hello Bluebird and I'll be using the Frosty Friends stamp set to create a Christmas Scene. 


I started off with stamping out my images onto some white card stock and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I also stamped out the sentiments with black ink too. Once they were coloured I cut them out using the coordinating dies. 

For my background I took a piece of watercolour card stock and a piece of painters tape that I cut to a hill shape and adhered it down. I then used my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolour palette and watercolored over the painters tape with blue watercolour. I then dried it off with a heat tool, swapped the painters tape and used a little grey watercolour to colour the snow.


I dried it off and then used some white gel pen to draw dots in the sky for the snow. Lastly, I added foam tape behind all the images and adhered them into place. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and I'll catch you all next time.

Comments must be left by 11:59 PST on the 18th of September and then winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog.

------------------------------------------------


Now that all the details are out of the way, let's move onto the project I made for today. 

------------------------------------------------

For today's project I decided to make some quick and easy tags from the new Autumn Wreath stamp set. I love this set so much because wreaths and wreath building sets are some of my absolute favourites. There are so many ways to use them and for today; I'll be making a couple tags. I decided to go with one Fall themed and one Christmas themed to show how versatile the set is with a few different colourings.


To begin my tags today I started off with stamping out the wreath, acorn and leaf image twice each onto some white cardstock. I coloured each of the wreaths in with Copic Markers, using different colours for each to show the different between themes. Once they were coloured, I die cut all the images out using the coordinating dies and set them off to the side.

(Copic Markers Used: Christmas - E53, E55, E57 / YG01, YG23, YG17 / R14, R29, R89 / Y21, Y26,  Y28, YR23. Fall - E53, E55, E57 / YR04, YR18, E37 / Y17, YR24, YR27 / R24, R29, R89 / YG61, YG63, YG67)


I also needed a new backer for each of the images so I die cut the wreath die twice more just with some plain white cardstock as well. I then adhered the coloured wreath and the plain wreath together, this way you can write on the back and not have the Copic colouring showing thorough. 


Next, I adhered the acorn to their corresponding leaves and punched a hole through the top. I also punched a hole through the top of my wreath as well. Lastly, I threaded through some twine onto the top of the tags first. Then I used some plain twine to thread on the acorn and leaves and tied a bow at the top of each tag. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, the next person on the stop is Gemma - who is amazing, make sure you keep hopping. Or if you haven't come here from the start, there is a list above that you can go back to. 

Make sure you leave comments to be entered into the giveaways and I'll see you all next time!

Hello Bluebird - Fall Tags

Hi friends, today I'm here for Hello Bluebird and I have some fall tags to share with you all. I'll be using the Autumn Gatherings stamp set along with some Patterned Paper from Sunny Studio to create them. 


To begin my tags today I started off with cutting down piece of patterned paper into tag shapes. I cut a rectangle (any size works) and then cut the top edges at an angle to create my tag shapes. I then punched a hole in the top and set them off to the side. 


Next I stamped out my images from Autumn Gatherings and coloured them all in with Copic Markers. once they were coloured, I die cut them out using the coordinating dies. I adhered the scarves to each of them as well as their "food" item and set them off to the side. 


Since I felt like the images got lost of the patterned paper I used a piece of brown card stock and adhered that into the centre of my tag. I then adhered my images down using foam tape to the left hand sides and stamped the 'Just For You' sentiment on the right with black ink. For a last finishing touch I threaded some string through the tops of each of the tags in different colours and that finished up my tags for today. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you all enjoyed and got inspired. 

See you all soon!
