Hidey ho everyone!  I'm here to share my latest project with you all!  I really, really wanted to use the You Inspire Me stamp set.  It's been sitting on my desk just waiting for the right moment.  I finally had a great idea for it.

I started with a kraft colored piece of cardstock.  Next I needed some colors to work with.  I pulled several ink pads from Stampin Up--Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede.  I stamped the word "inspire" randomly on the cardstock with black ink.  Next, I went in with some of the small sentiments that coordinate with inspire.  These were stamped in assorted colors.  Then to fill in the gap areas, I used several of the little stamps in the set to randomly stamp all over. 

Once that was done I cut it out with a scalloped die.  I sponged around all of the edges with the Rich Razzleberry ink.  I wanted something to go along one side but I felt cardstock would block too much of the background.  I pulled out a piece of heavy vellum.  The plain vellum was just too stark and showed up as white.  I searched through my Copics and pulled out RV69 which matched closely to the Rich Razzleberry ink.  I colored the backside of the vellum so that it would be muted on the front.

I dug around and pulled out a border punch from EK Success.  I cut both sides of the vellum and attached it to the kraft piece by wrapping it around to the back and gluing in place.  Now that I had a background I needed more!  I pulled out one of the little floral images from Grace's Little Notes.  I stamped it onto watercolor paper using the Rich Razzleberry ink.  I used a waterbrush to pull out the color into the flower petals.  I used Mint Macaron and a waterbrush for the stem and leaves.  I went around the entire image with the Soft Suede.  Once the flowers were dry, I went back in and added a little more Razzleberry ink for a bit of shading.  I attached the flowers using foam tape onto the kraft cardstock.

To complete the card I cut a piece of craft foam to put behind the entire piece of kraft cardstock.  I adhered this to a Mint Macaron card base.  For the finishing touches I colored over the flower with Wink of Stella and added a few sequins.  I didn't have any matching sequins on hand so I pulled the white ones out of the Honeybee mix and colored them with Copics.  Then I had a perfect match!!

I hope you enjoyed my project today!

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!

I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.

I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.

I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.
