Beautiful blue birthday for Paper Rose

I have a card to share today using some gorgeous products from Paper Rose.

I made a panel of Yupo with alcohol inks. I then cut the Lovely Florals Blossom Border die and beautiful word die from white cardstock , and the word shadow from vellum. I stamped and white embossed the sentiment from Beautiful Words on blue cardstock.

Anything goes at A Blog Named Hero

Hello! I have a pink and girly card to share today for the "Anything Goes" challenge at A Blog Named Hero.

I created a panel of watercolour cardstock with the Flowers for Colouring Bold Prints stamp embossed in white. I coloured it with Zig markers and water, then cut a circle from the panel. I stamped and clear embossed the same stamp onto a pink Hero Arts notecard, then added a sentiment from Messages with Flourish which I embossed onto vellum.

Starting late for Kathy Racoosin's Online Card Class

Finally got a chance to watch 2 videos from day 1 the new Online Card Class with Kathy Racoosin. She says to be fearless with colour choices (I actually have that fearless pin!). In our family, there's a running joke about confusing the colours orange and purple, so I tried to colour an image with those two colours! Not for the faint of heart!

Please don't look too closely!

I used the GORGEOUS Friendship Blooms stamp set from Hero Arts and Gina K Designs. I've had this stamp set for MONTHS, but haven't had a chance to get it inky until today!

I added some pink to blend a bit between the purple shadows and the orange on the petals, and I added some navy blue pencil in the nooks and crannies, and some yellow pencil to brighten up the petals, too. I decided to make the leaves a teal green, but then I added some grass green pencil to brighten them up a bit, too.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted, white embossed on black cardstock.

Using up leftovers

I love getting two cards for the price of one! I made a panel of Yupo with alcohol inks, and added glitter paste over a stencil from Hero Arts for a post for the A Blog Named Hero Facebook Page earlier this month. I used this leftover square to make this very quick card.

I added a die cut sentiment from Simon Says Stamp. Simple!

Hey Bestie at SImon Says Stamp

I have a 2nd card using a stamp from the "Hey Bestie" release at Simon Says Stamp.

I white embossed the Etched Snowflake Background stamp onto a white card base, and blended Distress Oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch over the top. The sentiment is from Big Thanks Words and the matching die.

Hey Bestie release at Simon Says Stamp

The new release from Simon Says Stamp is now available! The very generous Heidi at Simon Says Stamp sent me the gorgeous Etched Snowflake Background stamp - it arrived in the mail today, and I immediately got inky!

I white embossed the background stamp, and added colour with Zig markers and water,before adding heaps of shimmer with Perfect pearls in water. The sentiment die is cut from glitter cardstock, and the stamped and white embossed part of the sentiment is from Tiny Words.

Rainbow birthday

Hello! I have a simple card to share today - a single sentiment stamp and a watercolour rainbow!

I started by stamping the sentiment from Studio Katia in Versafine onyx black ink, and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then added some colour using Zig markers and a waterbrush, then, when it was dry, added some black enamel dots!

I thought I would try to make a paler version of the same card, and I added sequins to this one.

Welcome to a new challenge at Fusion!

I used a stencil from Paper Rose with Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment is a very old stamp from Stamp It.

Pink and grey birthday card

I made this card AGES ago (my mum gave it to my sister for her birthday - in November!) but I realised I hadn't shared it here.

I used a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp embossed with Hero Arts gold embossing powder. I coloured it with Zig markers and water. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and from Birch Press.

I'll be sharing this card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, where the theme is "Fun with Florals".

Beautiful pink magnolias for Paper Rose

I am VERY excited today, because this is my first official post as a member of the Paper Rose Studio Design Team! Yay!!

I made a panel of Yupo with alcohol inks, then cut it with the shadow die from "Magnolia Bloom". I cut the floral die and beautiful word die from black cardstock and the word shadow from vellum. I then stamped and white embossed the sentiment from Beautiful words on black cardstock.
