You should have arrived from Rebecca Luminarias but done worry if you haven't as you can get the full hop list form the Winnie and Walter blog here 

I have two cards for today blog hop and both feature the In a word hi cutaway,
I have kept both cards very simple.

I stamped some flowers from In bloom Anna's flora in pink distress ink and coloured with copics.
Once all the colouring was finished I added some dots of a white jelly roll pen to the blue and some wink of stella on the flowers.

My next card uses the hi cutaway, coloured with distress ink and then stamped in versamark and lightly dusted with gold perfect pearls.

I also stamped onto the panel in versamark and again added the prefect pearls.
I also added some perfect pearls to water and flicked on to the panel and the die cut.

Today as well as a card to share I have some news. 
I am taking a break from Seven hills crafts. 
Real life has gotten in the way of making but  you still have the most awesome talented design team.
Back to the important stuff ...Today's card features Concord and 9th.

I love clean and simple and today Ive gone for a one layer card.
I have stamped all of the images with distress inks but any water based inks will work and spritzed with water.
This gives a very different look. 
 If done with water colour card it works very well and gives a more water colour effect.
The small dots were stamped in versamark and then dusted with gold powder.
Then not being able to resist the gold water colours i splashed some gold gansai tambi paint over.
The sentiment was then stamped in black archival ink.

In Bloom: Renee's Leaves

Hello I have this card on the Seven hills crafts blog today.
Today I have a card featuring Winnie and Walter's  In bloom:Renee's leaves stamp set.

To start I stamped the image onto water colour card with versamark and then heat embossed in platinum.
Then using the Gansai tambi water colours I coloured the images really loosely.
I let it all dry then added splashes of the white gold from the starry colours set.

The panel was die cut with Lawn fawns stitched rectangles and also a smaller rectangle of vellum.
For the sentiment I used Lawn fawns scripty thanks die. 
Its cut from water colour card and then coloured with the white gold water colour.
I adhered to the vellum and then added the same adhesive on the reverse of the vellum so nothing shows through once everything is put together.
To finish I added more splashes of the white gold.

Lawnscaping #136 Punny Time

On the Lawnscaping blog today is a really punny challenge lol
We want you to make a project with a punny sentiment.
I know your going to have fun with this one.
This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Lawn Fawn.

Lawn fawn has so many fun stamps and sentiments that it was tough to choose which one to go with. 
I went with the Life is good stamp set.

To start I stamped the crab in various colours onto my card base.
I chose beach/sea type of colours.
Once there were enough images I then added some gold glimmer  mists.
Once that dried a white strip of card with the sentiment was placed across the card.

I stamped and coloured the crab with copics before fussy cutting and adding to the card at the end of the sentiment.
Hope to see lots of punny cards in the gallery.
Thanks for looking.

Tickled pink

Here is my blog post from the Seven hills crafts blog today.
Today i have a card using the fun hogs and kisses stamp set from Avery Elle.

I wanted a clean and simple card but have used a bright colour to add a bit of impact.
To start I stamped the pig image onto my water colour card panel.
He was then coloured with Inktense pencils and a water brush.
Once it was dry I the water coloured the whole panel with distress ink.
For the main sentiment i i have die cut the scripty thanks from Lawn fawn in black so that it stands out.

Lawnscaping challenge #135 Patterned Palooza

We have a super fun challenge starting on the  Lawnscaping challenges blog today.
We want you to add some patterns to your projects, you could use patterned paper or stamping get creative and have fun. 
This challenge is sponsored by the amazing generous Ellen Hutson LLC.

As you can see I have used the fabulous mermaid for you stamp set for my card.
To start my card I made my card blank from white card and then stamped one of the sea weed stamps repeatedly. 
I used four different blue inks to give an ombre effect.
I then added a sheet of vellum over the top to tone down the pattern a bit.

I stamped the images in momento black ink and then coloured with copics.
Once everything was coloured in I fussy cut them.

I also used some patterned paper to make the circle die cut.
I wanted the circle to centre the images. 
The sentiment was added below on a banner. 
Thanks for looking.
