Inspired By Stamping : Kids Card

Hi all, today's set of cards is for those young ones that love things that fly. 


This set is using the Kids Fun stampset. Such a fun, fantastic and playful set for kids.




Each card is using a tag that has been water coloured with a variety of colours. 
I have used a variety of sequins from different companies to co-ordinate with each tag and card.


Versamark Black Onyx ink was the perfect ink to stamp to achieve crisp black image on each tag.

I have heat embossed with fine white embossing powder on black cardstock ti make each sentiment standout.

To add extra embellishment  I have used black twine on each tag topper. 


Hope you enjoyed today's set of card.

Inspired By Stamping - Night of Navy Birthday Card


This clean and simple card  has a rich regal elegant feel to it don't you think? 
Night of Navy Ribbon and Ink has been used with a very light sponging on the centre panel for an extra touch of colour.

In the centre of the ribbon I have used Inspired By Stamping Medium Flowers (Dark Blue). I have added some extra sparkle to the flower by brushing some Wink of Stella clear on the tips of the flower petals.

Large intricate dies  has been cut out using whisper white cardstock.

The stamped birthday sentiment on the centre panel is from Inspired By Stamping 'Small Fancy Labels 18'. 

Hope you like todays card?'

Happy Paper Crafting Peeps :)

Inspired By Stamping - Valentine's Day Gift Packaging

Hi All, Jo here today for a fun blog post. Today is about gift packing and with Valentines Day this weekend I have packaged up some presents for my loving husband.

The top & bottom box is using cardstock that I have customised for today's colour scheme and cut out with my gift box punch board. 
The colour scheme chosen for this set is Mint, Coastal Cabana, Silver and Whisper white. I wanted to keep the colour scheme soft but masculine.


The top box I have stamped the heart clusters from the Hearts stampset repetitively with silver pigment ink.  I have made a tag using a mint cardstock, for the faux stitching I have used a silver sharpie. The sentiment & embossed heart is also from the Hearts stampset which was stamped on a die cut whisper white cardstock. The die used is from the Fancy Labels Die #2 ,white and a teal satin ribbon for the bow and to tie the tag to the bow  some white twine. Copic Marker BG34 around the edges of the sentiment die cut has been used.


 
The bottom box has been created with a designer series cardstock that came already embossed so I was able to sponge silver pigment ink over the cardstock which resisted the polka dots showing through. I wiped the cardstock down with a tissue to make the emboss resist polka dots pop.

 I have heat embossed with pool party embossing party the label from the Fancy Labels 3 stampset set on Vellum cardstock. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder and die cut from the Fancy Labels Die #3.

To embellish the centre piece I stamped a heart and heat embossed with pool party. 





Hope you enjoyed today's blog post. Happy Paper crafting peeps.
Hugs Jo

Inspired By Stamping Bokeh Birthday Cards

Today's Cards are all about Bokeh. I have seen alot of cards on Pinterest and wanted to give it ago myself. 


I have used a Watercolour cardstock for all 3 cards. For each base I have used varied die ink refill bottles. I have saturated the water colour card stock prior to placing any ink on the card stock. I have picked up ink with my aqua painter brush and placed the inks randomly on the card stock. I had a paper towel on standby if at any stage I felt I over saturated the ink which I blotted over the card stock.

Before I went to the next step I ran my heat gun over the water colour cardstock to ensure it was fully dry to work on.

I created my own stencil template with circle punches and circle dies. I have used Unicorn white pigment ink . TIP - the smaller the circle the more white ink I use and the heavier pressure I use.

For the sentiments I used a black permanent pigment ink to stand out in front of the Bokeh.

To embellish and finish the card black, gold, clear & pink sequins were placed .

"Love "


Made this card for my husband for Valentine's Day.

Used the Heart's stencil from Stampin Up with Wendy Vecchi white embossing paste for the tag backdrop.

I absolutely love the Lawn Fawn Co-ordinating "Love You Tons" stampset and die. The elephants have been copic coloured in with C0, C2, C3 & C7.

The love die cut is from Lawn Fawn and cut out with silver glittered cardstock.

For the heart I have used the Mini Hearts Set Die from Simon Says Stamp.

To embellish the tag top of the card I have used blushing bride chevron ribbon from Stampin Up.


I have entered this card in the following blog competitions -
