hope + giveaway winner


Today I'm sharing Kaja's gorgeous card using Hope.
What I love about this stamp set is you have a cluster of flowers ready for a stamp and your card is done! Of course, if you have some time to play you can do some masking and add the other flowers.

Today I have another special Guest Designer - Jenny Colacicco!

Thank you Jenny for creating this gorgeous card for the JD blog. I'm very grateful.

Hi everyone! Its Jenny here and I’m excited to be sharing a project I created today featuring Jane’s Doodles Hibiscus stamp set.  I couldn’t decided which elements to incorporate so I decided to stamp and color them all then arrange them!

I stamped each of the images onto hot press watercolor cardstock. I used Hero Arts Contour Ink which is great for no-line coloring.  I then colored each image with pan watercolors, using a wet on wet technique - filling each petal or leaf with clean clear water, then dropping the paint in and pulling it out. Once each first layer was dry,  I added a second, brighter layer, pulling it out a little less, and then finally a third ‘layer’ adding in contrast and detail. Be sure to choose petals that aren’t next to each other when using this technique, until they’re dry.  Hot press is smoother than cold press and therefore better for stamping on to keep the detail. I fussy cut out all of the images and set them aside.

For my my background, I ink blended some pale peachy coral ink from the bottom of a panel of white cardstock,  fading out toward the centre.   I also added a few splatters with black ink and rose gold metallic shimmer spray.  I then arranged my Hibiscus and leaves on the panel - the benefit of having all the pieces like this rather than stamped directly onto the panel is you can play with arrangements.  When I was happy with the arrangement, but before adhering,  I stamped the Aloha sentiment in black ink directly onto the panel then added my arrangement with foam squares. 

I finished with a few pretty clear green and glitter sequins for some added sparkle then adhered onto a notecard.   I hope I’ve inspired you today - have a good day!

JD blog hop + giveaway + 25% off!


Welcome to another JD blog hop featuring Hope, Old Is Gold and Road Trip.

Before I get into my cards I want to announce a 25% off sale (ends Sunday). Also, there are some sets that are marked down due to overstock.

For my first card, I used Hope and Old Is Gold. I LOVE vintage and retro-looking appliances/gadgets and Old Is Gold has been sitting on the back burner for a while and I'm so glad I finally got it finished.

I did a lot of masking for this card. Coloured and cut out the image.

For my next card, I used Old Is Gold. I shared how I create these watercolour images on one of my IGTV, click here to check it out.

For my last card I used Road Trip which seems to be a favourite (I've received many messages asking when it will back in stock).

I created a watercolour background, masking the areas where I want to stamp the clouds and sun. I stamped the main image twice, coloured and fussy cut them out.
Adhered them using foam squares onto the card.

There's a giveaway of course! Make sure to leave comments. The winner chooses a stamp set of choice (I will announce the winner on Monday).

We've got 3 special guest designers joining my fabulous design team. 
Below is the order of the hop.
