Hello! Well, I suppose I should apologise for the lack of blog posts at the end of last week (and also a lack of a Make It Monday video this week!), I mentioned last week that I had to travel about 300 miles for a family funeral… well that went well, and I managed to get a bit of work done in the car on the way there and back, which was great seeing as the second I go home last Tuesday afternoon I was struck with a horrible cold. Now, I get colds quite regularly, but this saw me actually in bed for two days, I had to phone in sick to work, and if I’m not well enough to go to work, I am not well enough to film either! As I write this on Sunday afternoon, I find myself slowly recovering, but I still can’t film… well not if you want to understand what I am saying! So, I have the video that was meant to go up on Friday last week that I will schedule for this weeks 3D Friday and hopefully catch up with some more filming this coming week!
To make it up to you though I thought I would share 4 cards I made this morning with the Sale-a-bration Freebie Inside the Lines!
Ok, so this blog post is heading for the top of the ‘image heavy’ list! This first card was inspired by a sample I came across on Pinterest that had 3 panels of Designer Series Paper laid out like this. All 4 of the cards I have to share with you today use the fabulous Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. I realised a few weeks ago when I posted another project using this paper into a Facebook sharing group, that I have used this paper a fair bit, but I tend to use it raw, no colouring, or colour added at all. So I though that really needed to change…. The paper here has a gentle layer of Flirty Flamingo added with a Sponge Brayer, and the card is finished with the sentiment from Beautiful You heat embossed onto a strip of Vellum and a trio of Enamel shapes (coloured with my black sharpie!)
This second card was actually the first card I made… or at least the first panel of paper I coloured. I pulled out my Watercolour Pencils for this one, I purposely kept things really soft… mainly because I also planned to colour a sample with my Stampin’ Write makers – which I did, it just hasn’t made it onto a card yet! The watercolour pencils are great! here I coloured the whole panel with Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie and Island Indigo, and then blended them with a blender pen to remove the pencil lines and blend the colours together.
This third card is actually one of the Make and Take projects from OnStage Local back in November! I am a naughty stamper at these things and find myself chatting more than making, but I try to make the projects when I get home. Anyway, I have changed the stamp set that the sample was designed to use, and grabbed for Floral Phrases for that Congratulations stamp. The single coloured panel here is coloured using Watercolour Pencils and a blender pen…. although I did almost leave it black and white!!
This final card is totally CASE’d from Rochelle Blok … and I couldn’t make a pile of cards with the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper without leaving one un-coloured!! There are actually 3 Sale-a-bration freebies on this card; Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper, the sentiment is from Designer Tee, and the layer underneath the sentiment is a tiny piece of Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper from the Glimmer Paper Assortment.
There are only 11 days of Sale-a-bration left!!! you can find out all about Sale-a-bration on my latest Sale-a-bration on Wednesday post which you can find HERE!
Right, that is all from me today, I have a busy couple of weeks with my day job before my holiday to Amsterdam with my Stampin’ Up! girls at the beginning of April (can you tell I’m super excited!), so I probably should stop typing now and get organised for the week!
See you again tomorrow!
