Blended Bloom Beauty

4 Dec 2014

Just a LITTLE Kindness

Well I thought id do a little flash back,

 to a card I absolutely LOVE!

I think this is my most favourite card iv ever made!!!

Here I used so many techniques that I hadn't used before with this card. Surprisingly they came together beautifully.

 I masked the "Kinda Eclectic" leaves on the left hand side of this card.
Here I stamped the leaves down the side and then roughly cut out the shapes to sit over the top of the leaves. This masked them from the Hardwood background stamp.
 Doing this fiddly technique creates clear crisp lines and stops the images blending over the top of each other.

 You don't have to be super careful

with cutting out the mask

just enough to cover
up that stamp in
roughly the
same shape!

 I love the Craft (white) ink stamped on Crumb Cake card stock.
I stamped both the blended bloom flower and the leaves in Craft ink. I then coloured the blended bloom in with Blendabilities Stampin' Up's alcohol-based markers.
These come in three shades and all the colours blend together to created great shadowing. the colour I used here is Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight.
Blendabilities are usually used with Whisper White card,
here I changed it up by using Crumb Cake card stock. I love the look its created!

The cute Pink gems are Dazzling diamonds I just painted them with the blendies. How cute is that! You can also do this with the pearls! This means you can now colour coordinate even more with Stampin' Up!

INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 6

Blog Hop Six
 Baby Joy
Sketch SIX and its nearly DECEMBER!!!
Yay Christmas it only just around the corner!
 If you would like to go around the corner Maree is just before me. Make sure you hop all the way around the girls to be INKspired.

This is the sketch we are working with this week.
Again I'm loving the challenge of these sketches!
With limited supplies as I am still starting out I don't always have all the shapes and sizes I wont.
So looking at it positivity all the improvising improves my creativity!
Here is my card!
I am in Christmas mode
however it was nice to change things up this week and make a baby card!
So many people around me are pregnant or having babies so iv been stock piling baby cards.

This Card is for a sweet baby girl. I m loving the neutrals tones a the moment.

With the circle I die cut a large circle then place it over my card front held it tightly and sponged around the outside with crumb cake ink onto crumb cake card.
Once I removed the circle I had this great affect.

 I then put the circle back secured with a small glue dot
 (that I touched with my fingers a few times to take off most of the sticky) and stamped the
 wood grain background.

Cute Baby Box

20 Nov 2014
Cute Baby Box.

I'm in love with the GIFT BOX punch board!!
Iv only just gotten my hands on this handy new punch board from Stampin' Up! and iv been having so much fun.

I already had the envelope punch board and didn't see the need to purchase the box punch board as I could make boxes with my envelope board. How wrong was I! I had a friend bring over her Gift box punch board telling me I had to try it! Well I did and I fell in love.
Why you ask???
Making a box with this punch board is so super 
Easy, Quick and Simple.

No need to look for that tutorial on pinterest searching through hundreds of pins (I know we have all been there) just to find the measurements and directions on how to make a box using the envelope board.

Just cut your paper to size and follow the board punching and scoring three lines at a time! All done super quickly!

Enough about the Gift Box Punch Board and more about the pretty decorations.
I love this hey buds stamp!!
Here I coloured it with Stampin' Write Markers, Blushing Bride, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz and
Crumb Cake.
 I love how this gives it a vintage aged look.
I then added some Gold bakers twine Gold Sequin trim and on top a PINWHEEL made with the pinwheel sizzlits die which was on the Clearance rack this week. Click HERE to check it out!
You don't need the die to create this pinwheel but it makes life so much easier!
 I finished it off with a clear vintage faced button and a bow of linen thread.
With a Blushing Bride belly band and a vintage doily I love this sweet little parcel.
The reason for this box was to hold a cute little gift for one of my closest friends new baby girl.
I created this gorgeous head band with elastic lace and
a sweet flower I hand made with silk fabric and pearl beads. Isn't it the sweetest!
I hope you enjoyed!
