Surprise Explosion card

Image
(Featuring: Explosion Card, Birthday Blooms, Butterfly Basics, Dragonfly Dreams)

I have fallen in love with this technique so beware you will be seeing a few of these cards.
This card front was inspired from one by artysara.blogspot.com. I loved her design and changed it up a bit to make  it my own.

The outside was so pretty I wanted to do something special on the inside too so...
when you open up the inside of the card you get a paper explosion kind of happening. I had already written in this card so that is why there is an extra slip of whisper white randomly across the the middle there (in case you were wondering :)
Products used:
Cardstock : Sahara Sand, Whisper White, (Pink Pirouette for the butterfly)

Designer paper is a retired piece - 18cm x 18cm. (score 9cm on two sides and diagonally across one direction) I have added contrasting designer paper to the triangle sections.

Stamps: Hardwood (stamped in White Craft Ink)
Butterfly Basics,
Greetings from: Beautiful You, Birthday Blast …

Have you noticed Colouring Books are so on trend at the moment?
Stampin Up definitely have...and have introduced a great Designer Paper package for all of us who love colouring.

The exclusive Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper is a Saleabration product. Which means there is only two weeks left if you would like to get your hands on some. For every AU$90 you spend you can get this paper or other Salebration products for FREE but only until March 31st.

So today I thought I would show you a couple of cards made with this lovely paper.





For this one I brayered over the piece using the Soft Sky Inkpad. Then I added some colour to some of the flowers and leaves using the Watercolour Pencils in Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Basic Grey.

I cut the paper into 4 different size panels and layered them over black cardstock.



Cardstock used: Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey, Black.
Other product: Dragonfly…

Hey Chicks...
Did you know there is only a few weeks left of Saleabration?
This Hey Chick Stamp Set is just one of a selection of products you can order free with every AU$90- purchase. Finishes March 31st.

I just love this stamp set. It really tickles my funny bone and I had to make one for my friend's birthday. Because she is "a good egg".
Her favourite colour is green so I looked out some Party Animal designer series paper from the Occasions Catalogue and off I went.
Colours used: Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, Crushed Curry.

Party On stamp and inside card stamps are from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set and I just had to place a party hat on the chicken (from a retired stamp set).
The ground is made with Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set in Basic Grey and I have watercoloured the chicken, egg and ground with our new Watercolour pencils p.24 of the Occasions Catalogue.
This card just makes me smile.
And what more can you want than a…

Beautiful You and Lift Me Up

(Featuring Beautiful You Stamp set and Lift Me Up Stamp Set)

Well hello,
I am back from a lovely week away at the beach and ready to show some cards made at my last workshop.

The first card (Tip Top Taupe card base) features the Beautiful You stamp set. I love the fact that there is a stamp to colour her dress. So easy! I used Blushing Bride ink.
I used our new watercolour pencils to colour her hat.
For a bit of a twist on a greeting I decided to stamp the Happy Birthday Gorgeous diagonally across half of my background Sahara Sand piece in Soft Suede ink.
Some pretty Falling in Love Designer paper and one of our lovely new doilys all from the Occasions Catalogue p.51.
The lady is stamped on Very Vanilla Cardstock and cut out with one of the new Stitched Shapes Framelits.
Ribbon is from Salebration.

Inside a birthday sentiment from Balloon Adventures p.5


The other card we made was using the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and Up and Away Framelits with matching designer paper from Saleabration.
