Wheelie Fun day!!


Good Morning!
Today is my special release day where I will showcase one of the awesome
 new stamp sets just released from Your Next Stamp

The set I am using is called Wheelie Fun and it is very sweet!

I started by stamping the bear onto some watercolour paper and colouring it with my Zig Clean Color Markers. Then I stamped the saying with some Versafine ink. I cut a border out using the Rectangle Scallop Frame  and inset the bear image I just coloured. Then I adhered it to some patterned paper from the Birthday Boy Paper Pad and a cardstock base.

Here's a close up of the bear!



All the supplies can be found at YNS and while you are there check out all the wonderful new releases!

September Release Day!


Welcome to the SEPTEMBER 2021
NEW RELEASE AND INSTAGRAM HOP
from Your Next Stamp!

I made two cards for you this release because it is a special Birthday!!
The first card I made features a new set called: Birthday Greetings which  
I also paired it with the new Confetti Circle Die!

I stamped the sentiment onto some coloured vellum and heat embossed it twice. Then I cut it out with the matching die and put another die cut vellum on the back of it. For the background, I used the Confetti Circle Die three times and backed it with some coloured yardstick. I attached everything together and added some gumdrops!

For my second card I also used the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set as well as another new stencil! This one is the Birthday Confetti Stencil.
These new stencils are SO wonderful to work with and the ideas are unbelievable for them!
For this card I started on the background. I distress inked into the stencil with three different coloured inks and then put a texture paste on top of it. Then for the top piece I stamped the candles onto some Copic papers and coloured them with Copic markers. Then I cut them out using the matching dies. For the sentiment I heat embossed it and added the candles on top!

Rose water colour

 Good Morning!

On the weekends that it is not raining I am really enjoying water colouring on the dock at our cottage.

I just set up my chair and relax by the water. A LONG needed break after a trying week at work!

Todays card features an older wood block stamp from Hero Arts called Antique Rose and it is one of my favourite flower impressions.


I used Fabriano cold pressed 140lb  water color paper and stamped the image twice using Versafine ink. Then I watercoloured the flowers using Daniel Smith watercolor paints as well as some white guache for the splatters. I cut it out using a die and mounted it onto some cardstock. I finished it off with one of the sentiments from Tim Holtz- Label Stickers and some gems from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for looking!

Have a great Monday!
