Birthday Balloons and shimmer watercolour

Birthday Balloons

I love this card, it was very simple to make but all the elements make it full of character.


Firstly its made using 'Shimmery White' card stock (#121717), I've had a pack of this card stock for ages now but no idea what to do with it. Its so pretty and I've been a bit baffled by its intended use for watercolouring. But look! Its stunning! Add some water and colour and the shimmer pops - plus for some added bling you can use the 'Wink of Stella' pen (#141897)



I used some 'Silver Metallic Thread' (#138402) for the balloons string which adds a bit of texture.
The balloons were stamped using 'Balloon Builders' (#140645) and punched them with the coordinating punch 'Balloon Bouquet' (#140609)




I used a scrap bit of card to create a space for a sentiment by running an 'aqua painter' (#103954) over it in the matching ink 
(unfortunately im not so good at getting the scrap paper straight, whoops!)

I love Jars!

Jars

I cannot get enough of jar stamps, dies, framelits, I just love love love them! Ive got a few sets already and was ecstatic when I saw that Stampin' Up have brought out a new amazing stamp set, complete with Dies to match!

On my weekend away with my team we made 3 stunning cards, designed by my team leader Michelle Last

I haven't yet bought this set, but it is number one on my list once I earn enough to get it!

(Class attenders- this is on our list of class projects! Probably Octobers class!)

Weekend away with my Pinkies

Weekend away

Before leaving on holiday to Canada I got the great chance to spend a whole weekend with all my great team members (The Pinkies) crafting and creating.

This was my swap for the weekend:

Supplies Used:
*Homemade texture paste dyed with In colour ink refill

* Wink of Stella

* Inks
- Crumb Cake
- Dapper Denim
- Early Espresso
- Memento Black
- Sweet Sugarplum


*Stamps:
- Fairy Celebration
- Timeless Textures

* Card Stock:
- Whisper White
- Early Espresso

Non SU:

- The Crafters Workshop: Specimen stencil 


I made up some homemade texture paste and died it with the in colour ink refills then applied it through the stencil to get the raised butterfly images.

Im really hoping to step up my technology skills soon and hope to make a video of how I made this card

I made so many amazing projects which I will share with you over the next few weeks, but for now I wanted to share this great chipboard home decor project I made. 
(I think mainly because I'm completely obsessed with anything chipboard!)


I loved this project. 
To make the background I used punched images from a thick card stock and glued them to a piece of chipboard. I then painted it with a light blue and dusted it in white. 

I then attached an embossed vellum sheet, sheet of DSP and stamped and decorated the top white card. 
This project is fantastic as you can hang it on a wall or mantle and change the front card with each season of life, or even a photo


With my monster supply of chipboard I plan to make a few more!
