Hey guys, hope everyone is doing great. Thought I would share this dreamy make with you.
While I was putting this card together, I was thinking about the dreams that I had. I wrote a bucket list that I update now and then.
I want to see so much of the world. Pyramids in Egypt, dance at the full moon party in Thailand, (I was younger when I put that on in), see Africa and South America.
Some of the others on the list are what a lot of people put on theirs. Hot Air Balloon ride, swimming with dolphins, but what I would love to do is dig an architectural site from the Incas or Romans. Im just fascinated at how people used to live and especially their art and crafts, it’s very interesting.
Most people think this is boring, so I don’t bring it up much.
Anyway, I used Versamagic Chalk ink in Pink Pertunia and Aloe Vera for the background and Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish in Pink Thistle on the Dreamcatcher.
I can hear you all sighing you know!
I’m sorry but you’ll thank me later! I’m starting my Stash Spring Clean with my dies.
I got some new magnetic sheets because they are the best way to keep your dies together.
Top Tip: use a baby wipe to clean your dies and poke out any stuck pieces of paper before you put them away.
Thanks for checking in, I’ll keep you posted, Chrissie. Xxx
I love spring so much with it’s warmer weather and statement flowers. The daffodil has to be springs iconic flower, but for me it’s the blossom.
Cherry blossom is a beautiful, pink little flower that has stolen first place in my list of flowers.
In honour of the cheeky cherry blossom, I made this card using Chloe Endeans’ amazing stamp designs.
On this make I wanted a sense of movement, like blossoms blowing in a breeze.
I used aqua markers to add the colours, then pulled it out using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle brush pen, they work like a water brush.
I love using Spectrum Noir brush pen in Crystal Clear, as it adds a touch of sparkle that you don’t always notice right away.
Great quotation from Einstein!
I love Chloe’s stamps and use them in my everyday stamping. There is always some eye catching detail in the designs.
Hey, thanks for checking in. As it’s spring I am attempting to Spring Clean my stash. I’ll keep you posted 😊
I love making my own papers. It’s a great way to make sure everything goes together on your projects and they are fun to make.
On these cards, I used four different stamps and three different Distress Inks.
Don’t worry about being perfect, I find they always look better if you don’t over think.
Tip – after you have stamped, try stamping again and you will get a faded or ‘shadow’ print of your image.
On the toppers I had fun with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders. I just tapped some onto white paper, then spritz with water untill you get the look you want.
I used black Stayz On ink to stamp my images onto the Pixie Powder papers.
Both of these techniques are so much fun and the results look amazing.
