#BESTDADEVER WITH HAND-LETTERED PROSE DIES

Hi all,

So today is Father's Day here in the UK so the card I am sharing with you is the one I made for my Dad who is one of the best people I know and an amazing Grandad to my girls.

This card is definitely NOT my usual style but it was lots of fun to create. I'm hoping my hands return to their normal colour soon lol!



I have used Shimmery Whisper White cardstock as the base layer as it is more porous than normal Whisper White. I have used ink refills and an Aqua Painter to create the ink wash background. This is the messy bit! Between the different layers of colour I have dried with a heat Tool so that the colours don't blend together too much.


The sentiments that I have used all come from the "A Good Man" stamp set and they have been stamped using Night of Navy.

To finish, I have used the "Hand Lettered Prose Dies" that I have cut using Whisper White Cardstock.

All of these items are available

Follow Your Art with Watercolour Pencils...

Hi all,

I promise this will be the last project you see for a while using the Crafting Forever Stamp Set.  Before the new Follow You Art Suite was released in the new annual catalogue, I hadn't really used this set but I've quite literally not been able to stop using it this week!

Today's card is really simple but I like how it has turned out. I have used a Whisper White Note Card for the card base so the card front measures 3.5" x 5".


I have stamped the pot of pens image onto the new Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper.  This is an upgrage to the previous Watercolour Paper that Stampin' Up! have sold.  It is alot more porous and the colour is alot closer to Whisper White.  In comparison, the colours fee like they blended better together and was alot smoother than the previous paper.   I stamped the image with Versamark and heat embossed with Black Emboss Powder.  To colour the image in, I have used a selection of Watercolour Pencils and an Aqua Painter.

The sentiment comes from the It Starts With Art Cling Stamp Set and it has been heat embossed using White Stampin' Emboss Powder onto Basic Black Cardstock.

Birthday Card C.A.S.E with Crafting Forever...

Hi all,

It's been a busy old week for me this week and sadly that has meant not alot of crafting time.  Add to that my craft room needing a good sort out and the hubby moving some shelves, my craft mojo has been absent!

I find when I'm drawing a blank, card sketches a really useful place to start.  This week over on one of my teams' Facebook groups they are running a challenge - to CASE (Copy And Share Everywhere) some card samples from a recent Stampin' Up! publication, and so this was a really good starting place for me.


I am really enjoying using products from the BRAND NEW Follow Your Art Suite and for my take on the challenge, I have used some of the DSP and the Crafting Forever Stamp Set that coordinates brilliantly with it as well.

I have kept it simple with a clean sentiment and some Glitter Enamel Dots to represent the circles on the original card.


Looking forward to some dedicated craft time over this weekend and next week to prepare for one of my most favourite crafting weekends of the year!
