Stampin Up

Watercolour poppies

Today I used another poppy stamp, this time by Stampendous.

I inked the stamp with distress inks and after stamping it on watercolour paper, I misted it until all the lines disappeared. After drying the red and green ink, I smooshed some blue ink as sky.

I then re-stamped the image in red and green and coloured in the petals.

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from an old set by Stampin Up!

Happy Together

Hi there!

The theme for the current Casology Challenge is ‘Tiny’. So many possibilities with this one! In the end, I pulled out a very old Stampin Up set. The date on the stamps is 2004 but I think I got them later – maybe 2007/8. Anyway, it’s definitely time to give them some love again. I really liked Janet’s card design to support the small focal point so decided to use her card as my inspiration this time.

I chose¬†the ‘Happy Together’ image which I have always thought would be perfect for anniversary cards. I coloured it using my Twinkling H2O paints and cut it out using a Spellbinders die.

I matted it to two other die-cut rectangles and then adhered it to my base card using some foam pads to provide more dimension.
