Hello Beautiful Release!

Hey friends! It is release day with Simon Says Stamp! You can check out the whole Hello Beautiful Release here!

I got to play with the Spring Blooms Corner Die! So I inkblended up a couple of background and then cut the die out on some white and black cardstock in order to create the two cards.

I really love the way these came out, it is so fun to get a small mystery parcel from Simon every month and get to play with something new! I popped up the panel with foam tape to get a bit of a shadow on the ink blended background.

Party Like a Panda

Hey friends! Today I have a fun card and video, creating my own background with watercolours and some copic colouring!

It was great fun creating the pastel rainbow background, then keeping the bright colours for the panda and his little balloons!

Come on, I just can not get over these cute little pandas! I have used this set a few times and just love it every time! The sentiments in this set are also super wonderful!

You can watch my video to check out my entire process!

Sunny Vibes

Hey friends! Today I again was playing with my Kraft paper, Copics and Coloured Pencils. It has been my jam the last few days. They take me about 3 mornings of colouring before work!

So I masked out the little van and put the tree in behind it. After that stamping the sun to the right side of the paper. All using Ink on 3 No Lines ink. I really like it on the kraft paper for this look.

I do really love the white highlight I added between the images and the blue sky.

Magical Dragons

Hey friends! Today I pulled out the Magical Dragons set from MFT and my copics and coloured pencils on some kraft paper.

I stamped it out with come really light ink for the no lines look. Then added in the background and detail in the dragon with my coloured pencils. Unfortunately, I didn’t keep track of all the coloured I used, cuz it was just some late night colouring for 100% fun!

I added the cloud in the background with a stencil then added the colour after. A few small enamel dots with a small sentiment finished off this sweet little card!

Valentines Card

Hey friends! Another new thing from me today, I do not normally do holiday themed cards a whole lot. It just isn’t my cup of tea. But this was a fun quick and simple card to put together!

The pink in this card, is way NEON in person, which I love but neons do not photograph real well.

This one was simple, just an ink blended heart die cut and then a sentiment called it done!

But I do have a process video to share with you all!

Frosted Garden

Hey friends! Today I have a card and video sharing a card I am in love with. That involves NO COLOURING. If you have been following my blog for any length of time you know that I colour literally all the time. This is so outside my norm. I would love to know what you think!

I stamped out all the images using the Coffee Break in set on white cardstock, and watercolour paper. Then spend AGES fussy cutting them all out. I then inkblended a tall slimline card to place them all on. A fun die cut sentiment paired with a stamped one finished this card off!

I do prefer the solid stamping on the white cardstock as opposed to the stamping on the watercolour paper. I am interested to know which look you prefer!

And now for the process video!

Stronger Together

Hey friends! Today I have a clean and simple card to share with you. Using Alcohol inks and my copics, both of which I have been neglecting!

I started off by creating the background panel with my alcohol inks, using some pinks. Which helped me choose the yellow flowers of the copic coloured image to contrast off of that pink background!

I did a primarily black sentiment as I wanted it to pop out from all the colour and white space that is on the front of this card. I haven’t done a clean and simple card like this in quite some time!

I do have a process video of this one to share with you all!
