Water Colour Sending Flowers Silhouette Card

Water Colour Sending Flowers Silhouette Card I have simply fallen in love with silhouette style cards and honestly they are so easy to create I don't know why I haven't got into silhouette cards before this I simple water colour background & some black die cuts or black stamped images creates a very simple silhouette theme.


I used our water colour fluid paper with a selection of inks as follows Early Expresso, Cajun Craze, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody & Pineapple Punch So I wet the water colour paper first then I started form the early expresso and worked my way up into the lighter colours  I popped the water colour background when it was dry onto a black card base I then cut out the Sending flowers coordination dies that are new to Stampin Up!® starting 4th February 2020 in black to create the silhouette effect Finished off with a cream sentiment label stamped in Soft Suede I then spritzed with my wink of Stella to add that glittery feel to the card If you are…

Mountain Air Diorama Card

Awesome Diorama Card with The Mountain Air Bundle When I first laid my eyes on this Mountain Air Bundle that is new in our Stampin UP! 2020 Mini Catalogue I felt like it was screaming out to me to do a diorama card

You may say what is a Diorama it is juts a scene with all different layers made in like a box type frame I felt like the mountains & trees in the Mountain Air bundle would be perfect to create a beautiful scene


The workings of this card are pretty simple to make  It takes 2 layers of Whisper White This Card stock cut at 4"x5 3/4" I used one of our stitched rectangles to make the frame for the front  The working mechanism of this card was created by 2 pieces of Seaside spray cut at 3"x5 3/4 inches Scored with the 3" side at the top of your trimmer and score every 1/2" eg 1/2", 1", 1 1/2", 2"& 2 1/2" I attached the concertina sides to the front frame that I sponged with my oval makeup brushes with a combination of Mos…
