Almost one layer card with Roses


Hi everyone, Heidi here on the blog! Today I have this easy and fun roses card for you all:

I started this card by stamping the roses from the awesome Kennedy Grace Creations “Splendid Roses” stamp set onto Cornwall Aquarel paper (Grain Fin, bright white) after die cutting a stitched rectangle with one of my nesting dies. For stamping I used Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and my MISTI stamping tool (this aquarel paper is fairly smooth but to get even black lines I needed to ink up my stamp several times).

Next I started colouring the image with my Gansai Tambi 36 watercolour set, water and a regular brush. I used the following colours:  33 / 31 / 53 and 58. After all the watercolouring was dry I created some lighter accents with a white Uni-Ball Signo pen.

Then I started working on the background: I created a nice damask background with a foam applicator tool, Distress Ink in the colour “Weathered Wood” and a stencil from Scrapberry’s called “Damascus”, going lighter towards the edges of the rectangle panel. I also mixed the same colour Distress ink with some water, applying it with the same brush, making the edges around the roses darker to create the illusion that the roses are in front of the damask background. I adhered this panel to a slightly larger matching green die cut rectangle panel with liquid glue after edging the green panel with some Distress ink in the colour “Mowed Lawn”.


For the sentiment I stamped one of the sentiments from the Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set called “Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose” onto some black card stock with Versamark ink and I heat embossed with Ranger “White” Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Next I die cut the sentiment with the smallest die in the Lawn Fawn “Everyday Sentiment Banners” die set and adhered the banner to the panel with the roses with Ranger medium matte, folding it to the back on the right hand side and adhering it to the back with regular tape.Then I adhered the combined rectangle panels to a white linen textured card base with one millimetre thick foam tape. 

I finished this card with some of the gorgeous Kennedy Grace Creations “Moonbeams” sequins (adhered with Ranger medium matte).

And that’s it for today, I hope you enjoyed!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…

Happy Owl-idays!

Hello, everyone! Rachel here with you today!

I'm loving the cute little critters that are going to be coming up in a new release and I think you're going to love them, too. I have a clean and simple creation using a new owl image for you today.


I started my card by masking off a small strip on the right hand side of the card and then blending purple and pink inks into the strip to create an ombre effect. After it had dried, I used a stencil and some texture paste to create my falling snow. I carefully removed my masking paper and then let the texture paste dry.

While I waited, I colored my little owl image and used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut him out. (Have I mentioned lately how much I hate fussy cutting?) When I was sure the card was dry, I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment and stamped it in a bold, black ink. I used some foam tape to adhere my little own beside my sentiment and my card was done!

Thanks for joining me today!
