Just for you – Card

Excited to use my new Kuretake Gansai Tambi Japanese Watercolour paint set again, I created some cards using my favourite stamps and embossing powders (grin!).

I started by cutting a panel of mixed media paper to fit a white 6×4” card which I made from white cardstock. I embossed white doily shapes and black butterflies onto the panel by first stamping a Doily by Kaisercraft using VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad and applying white Stampendous embossing powder over the top. Then I shook the excess powder onto a piece of scrap paper and tapped the tag against the table to make sure I’ve removed any stray powder. Once the excess powder was safely returned to its container, I used a craft heat gun to melt the embossing powder until the embossing powder melted into a glossy finish. I repeated the same process for the butterflies using a stamp designed by Graphic 45 Hampton Art using the VersaMark Watermark stamp pad again and this time I used black Papermania embossing powder. I added a filigree leaf stamp by Crafter’s Companion using Cottage Ivy Memento Ink and also a Script stamp by Kaisercraft using black Archival Ink. Next I painted the watercolour to the background by first wetting the paper and then adding Sap Green Light, Viridian and Lemon Yellow watercolour paint with a paintbrush and once dry I painted the filigree leaves with the same colours. I also added some Yellow Ochre watercolour paint to the centre of the card to break up the white space, then when the card was dry I splattered it with black DecoArt acylic paint. The “Just for you” is from the same stamp set from Crafter’s Companion and is stamped using black Archival Ink. I edged the paper panel with black Faber-Castell Big Brush Marker and stuck it on the 6×4” card using double-sided tape. Then to finish, I added silver glitter details to the butterfly wings using Ranger Stickles and also some glittery heart decorations using Glossy Accents.

Just discovered this gladioli in our garden this morning, isn’t it beautiful! I may just use this colour combination on one of these cards as I created several panels of the same design for painting later (grin!).

Here’s my new Kuretake Gansai Tambi Japanese Watercolour paint set, the box is lovely!

You may remember this set of watercolours from a previous post; I’ve been so impressed with them so far, the colours are amazing!

Wedding Card

Today I’m sharing the wedding card that I made for our dear friends who got married last Saturday – I hope you like it!

I started by creating a square card using white cardstock which has a glossy finish on one side, then I cut a square piece of Daler Rowney Mixed Media paper that was slightly smaller so it left a 5mm (3/16”) border when placed on top of the card. Next I stamped some tree branches from a Kaisercraft stamp set and also two lovebirds in a birdcage using a VersaMark Watermark stamp pad. I covered them with white Stampendous embossing powder, shook off the excess powder onto a piece of scrap paper and also tapped the paper to make sure any stray powder was removed. Then I used a heat gun to melt the embossing powder by sweeping the gun over the stamped images, taking care not to direct the heat in one area for too long until the embossing powder melted to a glossy finish and became smooth and dimensional. Next I applied three different Distress Inks using a blending tool to give an ombré look, which emphasised the melted embossing powder beautifully. The ink colours I used were Chipped Sapphire at the top of the card, Salty Ocean in the middle and Peacock Feathers at the bottom; I blended the colours together so one colour merged with the next. I then flicked some water onto the paper using my fingers to re-activate the ink then dabbed with a piece of kitchen towel to leave a mottled effect – I love the dreamy look this created. I edged the paper with the Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink using a blending tool and stuck it onto the card using double-sided tape. To finish, I added the sentiment topper and lots of tiny pearls to the tree branches.

For their wedding present we gifted them some money towards their honeymoon, so I created a little card wallet using a card and envelope from the Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection which I stamped using black Archival Ink; the stamps I used for the outside were an alphabet stamp from Dovecraft, a scroll stamp from Penny Black and a heart stamp from Hallmark Cards.

For the inside I used the same scroll and heart stamps and some Destination and Travel stamps from Royal & Langnickel – such fun!

Violet Butterfly

Yellow and violet are colours that are prevalent in my garden at the moment with all the pretty spring flowers that are in bloom. So with a number of challenges in mind, I created this journal page using a yellow and violet colour combination, some recycled materials and a lovely new Postcard Butterfly stamp that I just couldn’t wait to use (grin!).

I started by recycling some book pages which I ripped and stuck to my page using Liquitex matte gel medium. Then I used a yellow pastel coloured acrylic paint which I diluted further with white gesso and painted over the whole page varying the shade of the colour. Next I mixed some pastel purple acrylic paint with white gesso and stamped it onto the page using some recycled bubble wrap; to do this I wrapped the bubble wrap around an acrylic block which gave a stronger and cleaner stamped finish as I dipped it in the paint and applied it to the page. Next I added some leftover pieces of butterfly decoupage paper using Liquitex matte gel medium and when the gel medium was dry I outlined all the collaged pieces with a black Derwent marker. Then I stamped some Ground Espresso Distress Ink using corrugated cardboard from some packaging in a criss cross pattern and covered the whole page with splatters of white and black DecoArt acrylic paint. I stamped a Butterfly Postcard stamp from Stampendous using black Archival Ink onto a piece of yellow and white paper and also the butterfly image from the same stamp onto some purple paper that I recycled from an old notebook. I fussy cut the images out and along with some yellow leaves, a piece of recycled beige card from some packaging and a spotted purple card leftover from card making, I edged them with the Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool then stuck them onto the page using glue dots, double-sided tape and foam tape. To add some shine to the purple butterfly wings I covered the black dots with Glossy Accents. Then I added some purple flowers and metal vintage embellishments which I accessorised with some tiny yellow and violet pearls, which finished the page.

We have quite a few yellow flowers in our garden including daffodils and forsythia as well as purple crocus and hyacinths, and both of these colours can be found in these pretty pansies that are in our planters which we can see from our kitchen window.

This variety has quite big flowers, aren’t the colours of this yellow one amazing!

If you are interested, here are some fun facts about pansies:

  • The pansy is a member of theViola family.
  • Their name comes from the French word, pensée, which means thought or remembrance.
  • Pansies are one of the oldest cultivated flowers and are also one of the most popular plants in our gardens.
  • In the language of flowers, the pansy represents thoughts of lovers and in the 19th century this flower was used in love potions.
  • Pansies are edible and their petals have a mint flavour; they are often added to salads and desserts.
  • The flower is used as a natural dye.

Winter to Spring

I started this page sometime ago; it’s been sitting on my craft table these past three weeks waiting patiently for me, which is quite ironic given the quote I had chosen to use (grin!).

You may remember we had snow and storms during February/March despite the fact that spring should be just around the corner, which inspired my design.

I started by covering half of the page with a piece of paper depicting snowflakes from a design pad and the other half with a piece of magazine cover depicting cherry blossom, they are stuck into place using a UHU Stic. Then I stamped a star border from Dovecraft and also the “Winter” and “Spring” wording using an alphabet stamp set from Hampton Art and VersaMark Watermark stamp pad which I covered with Stampendous white embossing powder. I shook off the excess powder onto a piece of scrap paper and also tapped the page to make sure any stray powder was removed. Then I used a heat gun to melt the embossing powder until the embossing powder melted to a glossy finish and became smooth and dimensional. Next I added some silver stars to the edges and centre of the page which are outline stickers. For the central image I used the VersaMark ink and white embossing powder again to add blossoms and snowflakes to the opposite sides of a piece of mixed media paper. Then I coloured the paper using Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress Inks with a blending tool. I used my Big Shot to die cut a panel and some round shapes from this paper and also a smaller panel from an American Crafts design pad. I edged them all using the Distress Inks and a blending tool and also a black Faber-Castell Big Brush marker and stamped an Art Deco lady in the centre of the smaller panel using black Archival Ink to represent Mother Nature. I also stamped the quote onto the leftover mixed media paper and cut the words out; they are edged with a black Faber-Castell Big Brush marker and stuck to the page using a UHU Gluepen. The quote is by Ralph Waldo Emerson and reads “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience”. To finish, I added some silver snowflakes, pink paper blossoms and clear jewel stickers to add some sparkle.

As you can see we didn’t get much snow during the storms. We live right by the sea and I think because of our location, being in a flat part of the country and surrounded on three sides by hills and mountains (Lake District, Pennines and Welsh Mountains) we miss out on the snow as it falls in those places before it gets to us. We found that Storm Emma was the worst thing with very high winds which increased the chill factor – brrrr!

With the cold weather of late and having been unwell with the flu, I have found myself wishing for warmer weather so let’s hope Spring is here soon!

Also I really appreciate all your kindness and get well wishes for my dad who is much better now, thank you!

Mother’s Day Card

There’s still another week to join in the fun over at Try it on Tuesday with our Mum’s the Word challenge, where you are asked to be inspired by all things mother related such as a mother’s birthday, quotes for mothers, mother and child, animal families, Mother’s Day or any other way you would like to interpret this special mother theme!

Although Mother’s Day is celebrated throughout the world, here in the UK it is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent whereas in many other countries it is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. As I’m in the UK, we celebrated Mother’s Day this last Sunday so I’m sharing the Mother’s Day card I created for my mum for the Mum’s the Word challenge (grin!).

I started by using a lattice die from Spellbinders to cut a piece of white cardstock using my Big Shot die cutting machine. I stuck the lattice onto a white 6×4 card using Liquitex matte gel medium. Then I stamped two roses onto some mixed media paper using a stamp from Urban Stamps and black Archival Ink. They are painted using a Scarlet Spectrum Aqua marker, I did this by scribbling the marker on an acrylic block and picking the ink up with a wet paintbrush and gradually building up the layers of colour; I love the pretty watercolour effect that this produced. Then I fussy cut the roses and arranged them on the card with some leaves which I die cut from green design paper from Crafter’s Companion using Garden Greens Sizzix Thinlets by Tim Holtz and my Big Shot machine. The leaves are edged with a Moss Spectrum Aqua marker and stuck to the card using a Zig Memory System glue pen. I added a piece of satin ribbon along the left-hand side which I tied into a bow and a strip of clear gems. To finish, I added a few single clear gems and also the wording which are Peel-off stickers that I coloured using a black Sharpie permanent marker.

I do hope you will join us at Try it on Tuesday and if you pop over to the main blog you’ll find some amazing Mum’s the Word inspiration from my fellow Design Team members, as well as who is in our Top 5 for the previous Vintage Challenge.

I’m also pleased to be able to join the following challenges too:

As T Stands for Tuesday, I’m sharing this lunch I had whilst out with my parents around this time last year. We had a delicious ham and cheese toastie each and I had a ginger beer, my dad had a white coffee and my mum a cappuccino. I’m saying a big hello to the T Gang and sending you all Happy T Day wishes!

My post is brief today as I haven’t had much time for blogging this last week due to family illness. I’d like to thank everyone for their kind wishes regarding my dad, he is doing much better and is now back home which is a great relief to all our family and friends. I hope to find the time to visit you all soon and in the meantime thanks for your understanding and wishing you every happiness! Jo x

Trick or Treat

Autumn means it’s time to bake all things pumpkin and my sister has just given me a huge pumpkin that she grew in her garden. So this thoughtful “treat” inspired my page!

I started by making a template for the moon and also for the foreground out of thin card and used them to mask off areas on my page. Then for the sky, I applied layers of Black Soot Distress Ink by Tim Holtz using a blending tool concentrating the colour at the top of the page and shading so it was lighter towards the horizon. I also made a set of three cloud templates and stencils which I used to create the cloud images using some old black and purple ink pads which I applied with a sponge; I offset some of the clouds to give them a lighter border so they look like the moon is highlighting them. Then I removed the moon template to add a cloud across the bottom. I also added some texture to the moon using a sponge and the same black and purple ink pads. With the foreground mask still in place, I stamped the village scene from a Winter Wonderland stamp set, so it looks like it’s behind the hill giving a landscape perspective. Then I removed the foreground mask, and used another template to mask off the sky which I positioned a few millimetres lower than the village so that the horizon was clearly defined with a white line. I added the same Black Soot Distress Ink to the foreground and shaded it using a blending tool so it looked patchy. I also added some brown accents using a sponge and an old brown ink pad. I then stencilled some wavy black lines using a Texturized template from The Crafter’s Workshop and black Distress Ink. I stamped the trees by Clear Impressions using black and dark green ink pads and then used a black Uni Pin marker to add more detail. Next I drew the flying witch on her broom, her hat and a bat onto black paper, which took me a while as drawing isn’t really my thing. I fussy cut them out and stuck them to the page, as with all of the elements, using Winsor & Newton Matt Gel Medium. The banner is created from card which I folded in half and cut into triangles so that when they are unfolded they formed a diamond shape. They are coloured using a sponge and an orange ink pad, and the letters are stamped to spell out “Trick or Treat” using an alphabet stamp set from Dovecraft and a black ink pad. When they were dry, I folded them over a piece of Hessian/burlap string to create a banner and stuck the two halves together so they made a triangular shape. I stuck the banner in place at the same time as the witch, which allowed me to tuck the string behind her so it looked like she was pulling the banner along as she flew across the night sky. Once they were all in place, I outlined them with a black Uni Pin marker, added white dots to the banner using a Uni Posca paint pen and three purple gemstones to create a band on the witch’s hat. I also emphasized the ears and feet on the bat using a black Uni Pin marker. The pumpkins are drawn onto white mixed media paper, coloured using a sponge and orange, yellow and green ink pads. They are outlined with black Uni Pin marker and a white Uni Posca paint pen. I added shadows under the pumpkins using a paintbrush and the black ink pad, and also a white gel pen. I placed a little robin, adorned with a purple witches hat, on top of one of the pumpkins which I had made with paper and coloured using a paintbrush, ink pads and yellow acrylic paint. The village windows are also coloured using the yellow acrylic paint and I covered them along with the pumpkin’s eyes, nose and mouth with Glossy Accents so they looked like light was shining from them. To finish, I stamped the stars using a silver ink pad, outlined them with a white Hybrid gel pen and filled them with silver Stickles glitter.

This page makes me smile as it’s a lovely reminder of my autumn pumpkin and it was so much fun to get creative in order to join some fabulous blog challenges. I enjoyed making my own templates/masks, drawing my own images, adding autumnal colours using up old ink pads as well as using stamps to create the village, landscape, stars and banner focal point.

Having used stamps to create many of the elements on my page, I’m pleased to be able to join the lovely Avril who is Guest Designer over at Stamping Sensations for their “Autumn Glory” challenge.

With the different autumn colours I’m also joining the fun over at Country View Challenges for their “Mixed Media with Autumnal Hues” challenge.

Over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge their theme is “A Walk On The Dark Side” and I’m pleased to be able to join them with my dark Halloween page.

I’m also joining Moo Mania & More for their “Automobiles/Cars/Vehicles” theme as my witches broomstick is her preferred vehicle of choice (grin!).

The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge has a new theme for this month, so I incorporated orange, yellow, purple and green from the selection on their “Color Challenge” onto my page.

Here’s a picture of me holding the huge pumpkin I was given, I’m standing in our hallway next to the wreath I made, which changes with every season. I’m not carving this pumpkin because being home-grown it should taste delicious, so I plan to bake it and make puree to freeze for pumpkin rolls – yum! I’m guessing it will make quite a few (grin!).

Of course I could make a cake with pumpkin butter cream icing or even a pumpkin pie like I did last year (double grin!).

Or maybe my hubby can make some homemade pumpkin beer – cheers and Happy October!
