Masking Gnomes!

Now it’s time for something a little bit busier as there’s been waaay too much clean & simple going on round here.  The Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine had a call for ‘multiple’ masking and I’m not saying that I went overboard (but I came close), I think I was trying to channel my inner Sandy Allnock  creating  a scene with my Copics, she is  such an amazing inspiration!      ps Stoked to say this card made the cover.

Deck the Halls – Just in time!

Just in time…  Merry Christmas to you all!   If things have gone to plan (ie a 7 hour drive Christmas eve with no hiccoughs) I am now at my brother’s enjoying a lovely relaxing Chrissy by the pool and enjoying some great food and bubbles.

Todays cards were published in the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine for the ‘Just in Time’ feature where the call was to create two similar cards, one that was easy and one more detailed.  Me?   I like the clean and simple one.

Video : 2015 Same but Different Christmas Card Series – Baubles!

Back with another 6 Christmas cards and today is all about using the supplies that I have at hand (ie they may no longer be available but still very easy to replicate).  And keeping with the retro Christmas theme with some ‘non- Christmassy’ papers and a very cas design which is very easy to make multiples of.

I liked the bold colours and the simple funky designs so I used MFT’s Modern  Blooms again…   and a new scripty die from Lawn Fawn.  You could even use this design for a Chrissy card if you are feeling the ‘bold’ness.

I had a little trouble photographing this little number so here is a close up of how I used the acetate to add the centre of the sentiment on my popped up panel.

One of my all time fave watercolouring techniques, Distress Ink watercolouring is so easy as well as a great way to get more from your stash!  I’m on holidays at the moment and was hoping to find some crafty time…  my husband has other plans…   maybe next week lol.

Oops, forgot to add the video….

Video : Oh Happy Day at Scrapbook Boutique!

A very simple OLC today for Scrapbook Boutique.  I love finding ways to use those ‘small’ stamps in a set and multi-stamping is perfect for this.  I filmed as I created so you could watch the process.

Video : Colour with ‘U’ – Blender pen v’s pigment ink!

Something a little different for me today.  Sometimes I really struggle to get that nice ‘baby pink’ when I use Copics or pencils so decided to get out the blender pen with my Angel Pink Memento Luxe, and the colour is perfect!  I filmed as I created for you to watch.

This card is the reason that I went out and purchased the Dove Blender Pen, I’d been looking at them for ages and love the idea that you can swap out the nibs and refill them, it’s wonderful!
