July 2017 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey!

It’s time for another Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

I know theoretically July should be a release month, but earlier in the year I mentioned that I was aiming to take some of the stress of releases away a little, I have delayed it until August, it’ll be a good one – promise!  Anyway, the Design Team and I are here today to revisit and give some fresh inky love to a previously released clear stamp set.

This month I decided to dust off and revisit the previously released Marvellous Mehndi

As usual I have picked a couple of my ‘old’ favourites using this set and I am sharing them over HERE at the start of the hop. I’ve had so much fun creating cards using this set, it really does have a wealth of possibilities. Here’s how I used it today…

I’ve had these Gansai Tambi Starry Watercolours for AGES and I think I’ve only used them once since I got them nearly year ago *hangs head in shame*.  Anyway, I had the idea of using them with the large mandala from the set for a couple of weeks now and I really wanted to try them out on some black card stock too. So that’s how this card came about!

I stamped the mandala in VersaMark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I then used all of the colours from the Gansai Tambi Starry Watercolours collection to colour them in. This was seriously therapeutic and I just LOVE the sparkle! I added a die cut congrats sentiment from Stampin’ Up! and some gold nail heads to finish the card off.

I have a little sneaky peek of another card I will be sharing HERE (at 1pm GMT) for this weeks CAS Colour & Sketches DT post. I had so much fun I couldn’t resist using almost all the same supplies!

August 2016 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey!

With the summer holidays in full swing here in the UK and as I spend time with my beans and family you might have guessed with no sneak peeks that there is no new release this month. So instead we have another Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY instead!

This month I decided upon the Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum clear stamp set, probably due to the lovely summer blooms that I am seeing on my days out and time in the garden!

This is what I came up with…

As usual I turned to a couple of challenges to spark my creativity! It’s been a little all over the place these past few weeks and so I needed a little help again 😉

For the layout of my card I used the new Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 249-001

I then needed a colour scheme for my card so I turned to the Color Throwdown seen HERE and below. A lovely summery combination this week perfect for florals.

Quite a simple CAS card with a little masking and stamping! I started by stamping the sentiment and masking it off to stamp the flower and leaves. I added a little more interest to the card by dividing my aqua strips of card rather than layering a white piece of CS to create the lines of the sketch.

Ok, that’s all from me, but there is more inspiration from the team…
