I made a cute little spinner heart so that when my hubby opens the card the sparkly heart spins! You will have to pop over to my Instagram account to see a little demo on what that looks like though!  Michelleclast on Instagram

Mediterranean Moments from Stampin’ Up!

I have a gorgeous coloured thank you card made using the Mediterranean Moments stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  My husbands work colleague is from Spain and he kindly gave us a bottle of his cold pressed Olive Oil from his region in Spain.

I wanted to make a thank you card and the Mediterranean moments stamp set seemed a perfect fit.Mediterranean moments from Stampin Up

I stamped the image onto watercolour paper and stitched around the edge onto early espresso card as I had my sewing machine handy.  I then set about colouring the image with a combo of watercolour pencils and inks and the blender pen.  Colouring really is very therapeutic and it really did not take long to get it coloured.  I then added a heat embossed thanks sentiment from the thankful thoughts stamp set.

The last detail was to add the fine tip glue to the bench and the lamps to create a shine to those images only once the glue had dried.

The stamps in this set are so detailed and if you need some ideas on what colours to use when colouring them in doing a google image search as there are lots of examples for inspiration.

Hey Chick stamps free during Sale-a-bration

Thanks for popping by today.  I am sharing a card I made for a colour challenge with the Global Design Project using the Hey Chick stamp set which is free during our amazing offer Sale-a-bration.

Hey Chick free during Sale-a-bration

Love this crazy looking chicken and I created the chick wire back ground by using our Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder and Inking one side of the folder with black ink so that it stamped and embossed the design in swipe through the big shot.

I then punched out a circle of cardstock and then cut into the circle to create the opening for the chicken.

I then grunged up the edges and inked the edges with a sponge and the Basic Grey Ink.  The chicken itself was stamped on whisper white and coloured using our wonderful watercolour pencils and a blender pen.

As I mentioned this week at the Global Design Project it is a colour challenge and these are the colours you can use to make your own project and share with us to be in with a chance of being the weekly winner and being a guest designer.

Penned and Painted for Technique 101 Blog Hop

Techniques 101 Monthly Blog HopThis month we are creating a faux frame for the Technique 101 Blog Hop.  I used the Penned and Painted stamp set from Stampin Up for the flowers and leaves.

Penned & Painted from Stampin Up

I created my frame using a square of thick cardstock.  You can use a punch or a die to create the square or you can simply cut a square of your chosen size using a paper trimmer.

I cut a square using the stitched framelits which measure approx 4.2cm x 4.2cm. I cut three so I could place them evenly on my card and work out placement.

Whatever square size you choose make sure that three will fit in your card size and leave a gap around the outside of each square.

I stamped three flowers and leaves from Penned & Painted  on the right hand side of the whisper white cardstock in Black Stazon Ink.

I used the matching stamps to colour the slower using Pool Party and Bermuda Bay ink.  I also used some of my new watercolour pencils to colour the flower and the flower centre.  The leaves were stamped in Mint Macaroon Ink.

I then laid the squares in place with removable adhesive and drew a line around the edge of the square.  I used a piece of washi tape to make sure that my squares were straight.  Don’t draw a line through any of the flower or leaf, simply skip that part of the line.

I  sponged around the edge of the squares with soft sky ink to make the white square with the flower inside ‘pop’ against the background. And then finished off the card with a carefully chosen sentiment which fits perfectly.

Window Box Thinlits from Stampin Up

I am sharing a card I have made today using the Window Box Thinlits for the Global Design Project case the designer challenge!  This week we are casing Krista Frattin who is a Canadian Stampin Up Demo who is uber talented and a past Artisan Design team member.

#GDP072 Window Shopping Thinlits from Stampin Up

I have used a combination of products to make this card including the Irresistibly Floral design er series paper which is white and has an embossed design on it so I used the sponge brayer to add Daffoldil Delight ink to make it background yellow and the diamond pattern pop in white.

I then cut the small square die from the Window Box thinlit dies and cut around the pattern using the stitched shapes framelits. The scallop circle is from the circle framlits nesting dies and the vellum piece has been stamped and heat embossed with the little flower from the Window Shopping stamp set which coordinates with the window shopping dies.

I added a little circle of dazzling diamonds glimmer paper behind the die cut to add some sparkle.

The card we cased is shown below.  Beautifully simple or simply beautiful, either way so easy to case and make your own creation.  So why not join us this week and case Krista and upload over at the Global Design Project?

Whilst you are there check out what the other design team members have made using Krista’s card as inspiration.
