Birthday Blooms - Stampin' Up! - Kit and Clowder Colouring Classes

Good afternoon! Today I'm sharing a few cards made with just one set - Birthday Blooms.

I was really disappointed when Stampin' Up! withdrew their Blendable markers. So the first few images show you really don't need alcohol markers to colour beautiful images... the last is a little self indulgent as I did buy a set of Spectrum Noir markers... I'm still learning but am going to be doing a set of amazing classes from Kit and Clowder. (Link at the end!)


These first two are made by embossing the Vellum then colouring with my Blender Pens



I also used Blender Pens here - not perfect but It's the colour combo here that I love! Oh - and the fabulous Lace Trim and Duet Banner punch.



This was coloured with Aqua Painters after first stamping the image with Versamark and using Clear Embossing Powder.


This was another one with the Aqua Painters, but I used Archival Ink so it wouldn't run when I added the water.


This last image was coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers - I may have opted for a different manufacturer if I had realised the limitations of these pens... But they're probably perfect for me to get started with!


If you would like to start colouring you won't go wrong at all joining one of Alyce's classes at Kit and Clowder - she is AMAZING!

July Classes

Hi Guys,

I have had a little time for a play with my new goodies, but I also had my first assignment to complete for my diploma - a little scary as I left school quite some time ago!

In July classes we're making these lovely cards.


I LOVE this one! Daisy Delight combined with Jar of Love and Badges and Banners. I'm not surprised a year's supply of the punches sold out in weeks, globally! AND I actually managed to cut into that stunning DSP (patterned paper).



Then using Jar of Love again with the Swirly Scribbles thinlits and Layering Squares framelits I rustled up this cutey - the ladies wanted something for the men in their lives.


And this one, using Swirly Bird and the Swirly Scribbles dies with the Everyday Jars framelits is  a bit of fun!

Take care and please keep popping by - I will update again soon!

I can probably squeeze in an extra date if you wanted to book a class - just give me a ring!

Subtle Watercolour Shading - FREE Video Tutorial

Hallooooo!

I've been bust drooling over the new catalogue... don't worry you only have until the 1st of June to wait!

My pre-order has arrived and quite honestly I don't want to be typing this! I want to be playing!

My friend Anthony asked me for some videos... But I hadn't a clue what to do so I recorded the shadowing technique below.

The stamp set is 'Remarkable You'.

The first 2 cards show where I have used this technique to extract some of the ink from the stamped image. The 3rd where I have added colour. Scroll down for the video tutorial.

May Classes...

Well hello there! Long time no see! I've been crafting quite a bit the last few weeks... using some of the retiring products that I love before I get to swoon over and stroke all my new goodies from the new catalogue!

I've also booked quite a few trips in the caravan, next weekend is my first since June last year towing!

One of the questions I asked some of the other demonstrators was... "I love my patterned papers, I buy them because they're beautiful... but I just can't cut into them! What can I do with my stash to make room for new papers?

The response? "CUT IT!"

So I did... and the next few days I'll be sharing some simple ideas... the first is the one we'll be doing in our classes during May.





More ideas to come! xxx
