Whimsical Wildflowers - v2

Hi Crafty Friends

I just want to say, the Copics made me do it!!!
This stamp set was still sitting on my desk and calling out to be coloured in, so here's another card using Gina K Designs - Whimsical Wildflowers.

The card starts with a base of Bazzill Walnut which I stamped Darkroom Door's Mesh Texture stamp on.

I then added layers of Pinecone and Creampuff, which I stamped Penny Black's - Edge to Edge (30-164) onto using an Archival Coffee ink pad.

I stamped the images using a Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad and coloured the flowers with Copic Markers - YG61, YG63, YG67, Y15, Y17, YR23, E31, E35, E37, E79, R81, R83, R85 and R39.

I fussy-cut the images and and adhered the leaves and flower buds to the card and mounted the three centre flowers with mounting tape.


This stamp set is available instore or on our website - https://michellescardsandstamps.com.au/products-page/gina-k-designs/

Hoping you have a wonderful day.

Sunflower Love

Hi Crafty Friends

I came across Waffle Flower's Sunflower Love when checking our What's New and, let's just say, I'm rather partial of Sunflowers - I had to have it.

This card starts with a base of Premium Kraft card followed by Creampuff and Colour Copy Card 200gsm.

On the Colour Copy card, I blended Distress Ink Pads - Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint and Pine Needles.  I then stamped Darkroom Door's Postcards background stamp, stamped with Pine Needles.

From Creampuff card, I stamped Penny Black's - Just for You and 'Celebrate' words.  I adhered Just For You to the top right of the card.

I then stamped the Sunflower Love on Colour Copy 200gsm card using a Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad.

I coloured the image with Copic Markers - YG61, YG63, YG67, Y11, Y15, Y17, YR23, E35 and E37.  The centre frame was coloured with R83, R85, R87, R39.

I adhered 'Celebrate' to the centre of the frame and after fussy-cutting the image (there is also a die set available for this), adhered the Sunflower Love to the lower left of the card using mounting tape.

These stamps and dies are available on our website - Waffle Flower - https://michellescardsandstamps.com.au/products-page/waffle-flower/

Whimsical Wildflowers

Hi Crafty Friends


Just the name 'Whimsical Wildflowers' as a stamp set got me interested.  

This is a stamp set by Gina K Designs and includes beautiful flowers, leaves and sentiments.  Seriously calling to me and my Copics.

Here I have created two cards using the same stamp from the Whimsical Wildflowers set.

Both cards have a base of Bazzill Pear followed by either Flamingo or Heidi and finished with Creampuff.

The flowers were all stamped with Memento's Rich Cocoa ink pad.  I find using a brown ink pad on delicate images can sometimes help make it look a little more real and not as big of a contrast that black does.

The first card has sentiments from Penny Black's Special Thoughts stamp set - 30-338 and is coloured with Copic Markers - E15, E18, Y21, YG61, YG63, YG67, R20, R22 and R27.  I then fussy-cut around the images and adhered them to the card with mounting tape.

The second card has sentiments from Gina K Design's - Watercolour Flowers and was coloured with Copic Markers - E15, E18, Y21, YG61, YG63, YG67, V22, V25, V28.  The labels in the middle are from Sizzix (660060).  These flowers were also fussy-cut and then adhered to the card using mounting tape.

If you are interested in this stamp set, check them out instore or on our website - https://michellescardsandstamps.com.au/products-page/gina-k-designs/

Hoping you have a Whimsical day

Altenew - Stargazer

Hi Crafty Friends

While playing over Christmas, I made this card using Altenew's Build A Flower: Stargazer stamp set.

I started with a base of Bazzill Guacamole and added layers of Roselle and Blossom.

On a piece of Colour Copy 200gsm paper, I stamped My Favorite Things - Happy Birthday Background over it using a Versamark ink pad and embossed it with WOW - Opaque Bright White embossing powder.  

On another piece of Colour Copy paper, I stamped and embossed the words again and die cut Altenew's Simply Friend die from it and an extra piece of Roselle card.

I blended Peeled Paint Distress Ink pad around the Colour Copy page and the base of 'Friend' and then adhered the layers to the card.

Now to the Stargazer flowers.  I stamped the flowers using Altenew's Red Sunset ink pad set of - Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet.  I added tips to the stamens using Enamel Accents - Lemon Twist.

I stamped the leaves using Altenew's Green Fields ink pad set of - Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen.  

After die-cutting the shapes, I adhered the leaves to the card and added the flowers using mounting tape.

If this stamp set takes your fancy, you can pick it up instore or via our website - https://michellescardsandstamps.com.au/products-page/altenew/

Hoping you have a wonderful day.

Hello Gnomie

Hi Crafty Friends

When I first saw this release from PhotoPlay papers, I laughed out loud, these Gnome's are so cute and itching to be coloured.

This release is called Tulla & Norbert and includes papers, ephemera, stamps and dies.

This cards starts with a base of Bazzill Pomegranate followed by Dotted Swiss - Butter and papers from the Tulla & Norbert range.

I stamped the four Gnome's on Colour Copy 200gsm paper and coloured them with Copic Markers - E00, E11, E40, E41, E43, E47, Y11, Y15, Y17, G21, G24, G28, R20, R22, R27, R46, BG13, BG23 and BG49.

I did hand-cut these, but there are dies available.  I then stuck the 4 images together and added mounting tape to the back.


I was trying to find some words for the card and needed something to balance it and nothing was quite right, then Altenew's Tall Alpha Die set popped in my hand.  I added tape to the back and die cut the words 'Hello Gnomie' from white card.  I then coloured the letters using Copic Markers and stuck them to the card.  After adding the Gnomes, I used Glossy Accents to cover the letters and set them to dry.  

How super cute!!!
