Paper Rose Hummingbird Garden

Hi again.

I'm back with a project for Paper Rose Studios featuring the Hummingbird Garden stamp set.
 I wanted to create a bright and tropical look for this set of cards.

The hibiscus flowers are coloured with Copic Markers using rich and vibrant colours.
 I especially love how the reds on the flowers turned out.

For this card I have coloured and die cut all the stamped elements and layered them onto a background of blended distress oxide inks. 

The background colours are tumbled glass and broken china. 
I have heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder.

For this card I have stamped and masked the flowers to overlap them, I have then coloured the layered flowers with Copic markers. the sentiment " beautiful" and the hummingbird are die cut and layered onto the background.

For this card I have used a very old technique called mirror stamping.
To do this you stamp out the image onto a piece of acetate or a smooth surface, I have used an actual mirror stamping surface.
. You then take that stamped out image and you press that onto your paper like you would a normal stamp.
. This flips the image so now my hummingbird faces the other way.

Supplies used:

17475 Hummingbird Garden stamp set
17476 Hummingbird Garden Die Set
17304 Hello 4 x 6 Stamp set
16951 Layered Hello Die set
17652 Happy Birthday To You 3 x 4 stamp set
17451 Beautiful Layered Die set

I hope you like this set of cards.

Until next time

Paper Rose Vintage Motorcycle

Today is my turn to share a set of cards for Paper Rose Studio.
 It is Sunday evening here in Perth and Im afraid the day just got away from me, so sorry it's late

Todays Cards feature the Vintage Motorcycle Stamp set.

I needed a masculine card for my dad for fathers day and I always find masculine cards to be so much harder to create.

I decided to paint the backgrounds to look like woven fabric using acrylic paint and a bristle brush.

The process is slow and you need to keep turning your card 90 degrees to cross hatch the lines.

The panels that are on top of the backgrounds are made using some of the new stencils and texture paste. One of the panels has beed sponged in distress oxide ink.

Supplies Used:
17604 Vintage Motorcycle 3 x 4 stamp set
17605 Vintage motorcycle die
18195 Chevron Arrows 6 x 6 Stencil
18123 Half Tone 6 x 6 Stencil
18333 Hey Dad 4 x 4 Stamp set

I hope you like these cards, have you seen all the amazing new products that have been released over at Paper Rose Studio store?

I really am loving the new Stencils and the paper packs.

Until next time

Paper Rose Thanks a Bunch

Hi There

Todays cards I have created for you are for Paper Rose Studio. I really enjoyed the challenge of colouring in this gorgeous Stamp using Prismacolor pencils.

The Stamp Set I have used here is called Thanks A Bunch and is one of the new release sets.

For this card I have stamped the image in a light base ink colour to create a  no line effect and I have coloured the image in Prismacolor pencils. The "awesome " sentiment has been heat embossed and shadowed using the matching die in black. 

For this card I have coloured in again with pencils and then used the matching Thanks A Bunch die to cut out the flower bouquet. 
For depth and contrast I have used a geometric embossing folder to create the background.

For this card I have stamped the image in black ink onto a smoother card base.
 I have then selected two areas to spotlight and colour with pencils. 
I will say it did save me hours of colouring but still looks really effective when put back into place. The sentiments are once again heat embossed onto black card.

I love how the background on this card looks like it has been coloured in but its just shadows created by the embossing folder.

Supplies Used: 

18075 Thanks A Bunch 4 x 6 Stamp Set
18076 Thanks A Bunch Die Set
16951 Layered Hello Die Set17985 Beautiful Words 4 x 4 Stamp Set
17451 Beautiful Layered Die
18147 Awesome Words 4 x 4 Stamp Set
17460 Awesome Layered Die
16548 Stitched Circles Stacking Die Set

Thanks for stopping by to see my cards, I hope that you feel inspired to try colouring in your stamped 
images in coloured pencils.

Head on over to the store at Paper Rose Studio and have a look at some of the gorgeous new products there. You can even get paper packs in some amazing designs that are a great size for card making.

Unicorn Friend from Picket fence Studios

Hi There

I'm back again with another card for you.
This project is for Bizzy Bec's and features a sweet stamp from Picket Fence Studios called Unicorn Friend.

I have used a tonic Easel card Die to create a starting point for the base of my card.

However I have layered several pieces of card that are Gelli plate printed.
To create the backgrounds I have used a technique that Debra James taught us
which is to use stamps and alcohol markers to draw directly onto your Gelli plate to create patterns, which are then  transferred to card by adding a layer of thin white paint to the Gelli plate  transfer the design created.

close up detail showing the printed card.
To create the frame I have taped together two Stitched Square Dies, and kept the middle insert, or frame that this creates.

the front panel of the easel card has been painted in pastel colours with acrylic paint.

Supplies Used:

Picket Fence Studios:  Unicorn Friend Stamp
Picket Fence Studios:  Unicorn Friend Die
Avery Elle:  Wonky Stitches Die
Avery Elle:   Star Frame Die

Thank you for stopping by to have a look and please drop into the store at Bizzy Becs there are some great new products for you to pre-order.

Until Next Time

Paper Roses Lovely Florals Blossoms Card set


I'm back again with a set of cards for Paper Rose Studio featuring the new Lovely Florals Blossoms Stamp set.

I decided to go for a vintage almost Wedgwood china look for this set of cards. 

These cards all have bold blossoms coloured in Copic markers and backgrounds coloured with Distress Oxide inks.

To create these cards I have stamped out two sets of all the blossoms to get enough flowers to make the three cards. After colouring in I have die cut them out and arranged them in different ways.

To get dark shadows and depth into the flower petals and leaves I have used a medium blue, B23, Copic marker to shadow or under colour the darker areas. Once the top colours are applied this blue tone blends in to add a lot more depth than I could achieve with a standard blend.

The backgrounds are distress oxide Inks tha  are spritzed with water on a craft sheet and then I have randomly tapped the paper into the colours to create a 'splotchy' and watercolored looking background.

Supplies Used: 
18183 Lovely Florals Blossoms 4 x 6 stamp set
18184 Lovely Florals Blossoms Die Set
16969 Quatrefoil Layer 1 Die
16551 Stitched Ovals
17628 Stitched Hexagons 
17472 Thanks Layered
16416 Hello Friend stamp

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like these cards and that I have inspired you to create some of these ideas too.

Until Next Time
