Oh Joy – Watercolour Christmas

Why hello there! Thanks for popping by today. I’ve been a little absent from blogging as I took some time out from crafting and Stampin’ Up!… a little hiatus if you will BUT… I’m back and refreshed and excited to share some recent projects with you over the coming weeks. Part of my hiatus was getting organised with a plan that will allow me to regularly and consistently blog… so hopefully you’ll stop by again. I’m hoping to post on a Monday night and  a Wednesday afternoon… and then if there is more than that then BONUS!

To celebrate feeling refreshed and excited, I’m sharing a card today that celebrates joy to reiterate how I’m feeling after a break. The gorgeous sentiment on this card is from the Watercolour Christmas stamp set. You can see another of the gorgeous sentiments from the set in a card I made for the ESAD Blog Hop.

I combined my sentiment with the Sheet Music background stamp and stamped this on Very Vanilla cardstock to give it a softer feel than white. To give it a bit of a vintage look, I sponged the edges of the vanilla cardstock in Crumb Cake ink using a sponge dauber (best thing ever!). I snuck a little of some retired twine in because I thought it suited this card perfectly.

The last detail was a few gold sequins and we’re done! This will definitely be one of those cards that is saved and sent to someone special this Christmas. Have you started your Christmas cards yet?

See you Wednesday (hopefully!!!!)

Happy Crafting,

What Will You Stamp? #106 – Delicate Details

Hello! Welcome to my first official post as a Design Team member over at What Will You Stamp? I’m super excited to be a part of the team and look forward to sharing my creations with you for the WWYS challenges.

This week’s challenge over at What Will You Stamp? is using the Delicate Details stamp set (#WWYS106) that you can earn for FREE during Sale-a-bration, which ends on the 31st March 2017.

I’ve seen lots of creations using this stamp set since it was released and I initially set out to do something bright and colourful but as you’ll see, my card didn’t end up that way at all. It amazes my how the creative process works and sometimes what you create is so far from what you thought you were going to create.

My card today features the Delicate Details stamp set combined with the gorgeous Brushwork Alphabet stamp set. It is a stunning font to use on your projects! As you can see, my card is far from bright and colourful. HA!

The colours I used in my card today are Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Gold, lots and lots of gold!!! I heat embossed the lace border and the sentiment using gold embossing powder. Gold embossing powder is just stunning. I added a few gold sequins from the sequin trim roll to fill in some of the white space and add some extra texture and dimension to the card.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don’t forget to pop on over to the What Will You Stamp? Blog and check out the other creations for this challenge… and if you’ve got the Delicate Details stamp set, why don’t you join in our challenge? Would love to see what you create!

Happy Crafting,
