Weather Together Card

Hi friends! Today I've got a card to share from my August Card Club. We used the super adorable Weather Together Bundle to create this quick and easy card. 
I love the bundles Stampin' Up! offers in our catalogues. Major bonus - they're 10% off! 

Creative Tips:
  • Bust out your Paper Snips! You can add amazing pops of colour by simply stamping an image several times on different coloured cardstock, cutting out different sections, and then piecing them together. That's how I created this bold and bright umbrella.
  • Stay focused! With a super bright image like the umbrella, sometimes it's best to let it be the centre of attention and not go wild with much more colour.
I'm truly honoured that you choose to visit my blog and I'm thrilled you spend a little part of your day with me. :)

I'd love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator! 
Shopping in my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop is fun and easy, plus I have a shopping rewards program that I know you'll enjoy the benefits of!

Butterfly Basics Card

Hello my friends, and happy Monday! We had a busy weekend here in Calgary. The back garden needed some attention, we had a housewarming to attend, and I spent some time in my studio. Psssssttt...I'm working on a new Class to Go and Tutorial. You are going to SQUEAL with delight when you see it! 
Today's card is an easy watercolour creation using the Butterfly Basics stamp set. It truly came together in under five minutes! 

Creative Tips:

  • Get it wet! After creating a pretty watercolour wash background with Pool Party Ink, I stamped the ferns right on top. The colour started to bleed and I helped it a long a little more with my Aqua Painter
  • Stamp and repeat. See that skinny piece of paper with words all over it? I created that by stamping one of the text stamps over and over again on a piece of scrap. Super easy way to create an additional layer for embellishment.
  • Heat it up! Make sure you heat set the watercoloured background and ferns with your Heat Tool before stamping the sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink. You wouldn't want your lovely work to be wasted by a bleeding sentiment.

 Big News Alert!
The August Tutorial Bundle is being sent out today - but it's not to late to get yours too! I'm so crazy excited about this collaboration with some seriously INCREDIBLE people. Click HERE for more details and to purchase.
