So it turns out that my new years resolution of posting more on the blog hasn't been the most successful - I promise to post more! I really do! I have my first workshop coming up so I can't wait to show you the creations we will be making this weekend! Today though we are back with another awesome instalment of the INKreator's Blog Hop.
You have probably joined me from the lovely Rochelle over at the Stamping Block and her creations, as always, are amazing! She has a way with working with flowers doesn't she!
Today I am using one of the great bundles from the new Occasions Catalogue - the Grateful Bunch Stamp Set and the Blossom Bunch punch. When you purchase a bundle you save 15% - how awesome is that!
When I first got this stamp set at On Stage Local as one of our many awesome freebies I wasn't sure, but once I got started with it, I was hooked. Not only did I want to showcase these great new products but I also wanted to use three products today from the Annual Catalogue that are awesome basics to have in your card making kit - the Aqua Painter, Shimmery White Cardstock and the Square Envelopes. All the items I have used are available in my online store.
The first card today is using the leaves from the Grateful Bunch stamp set which I stamped randomly on a piece of Shimmery White card stock, along with a sentiment. This paper is perfect for water colouring so using Old Olive I water coloured the leaves using the Old Olive Stampin' Write marker and the Aqua Painter. I then layered this with card stock and also a sheet of paper from the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper (which is a great Sale-a-bration product) that you can get for FREE when you spend $90 or more during the Sale-a-bration period.
Next up, I created a series of small cards to coordinate with the small Square Envelopes. I created these cards using the five 2015-2017 In-Colours. I stamped the large flower in Staz-on and a sentiment on the card, water coloured the flowers and I then stamped and punched out the flowers to layer on the card. I also stamped flowers on the envelope. These are great little cards to have on hand, or together make a lovely gift for someone.
So there you have it, my creations for the blog hop! I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them! Now you are off to visit the gorgeous Michelle and her amazing creations.
