Crop Kingston's September Pets Virtual Crop

A few weeks ago we held our September Playful Pets Virtual Crop! We used the Playful Pets designer series paper for all of our projects and I wanted to share one of my original layouts (the first picture) and my changed version (the second picture). My changed version uses the same pieces of cardstock, a little different sized designer series paper and more pictures. I have fun creating different layouts using the same cardstock during my live videos in our private Facebook group. This way everyone receives more ideas if what we originally designed doesn't fit your style or maybe the pictures you have!
If you missed the deadline to purchase on the To Go classes you can still register until Oct 1 to receive the PDF of all 14 projects (8 cards and 6 scrapbook layouts) and access to our private Facebook group for our Plaid Virtual Crop. The crop happens next Sat Oct 3! Register for the PDF and Virtual pass here: http://bit.ly/CKOct2020Virtual

Pretty Cards and Paper Blog Hop - Plaid Tidings

Welcome to September's Pretty Cards & Paper blog hop! This month we are using either Plaid Tidings designer series paper or the Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper. My card features the Plaid Tidings DSP.
This past Sunday I showed how to do No Line Water Colouring at the team Zoom meeting. For this card I've used the pumpkin stamps from Gather Together stamp set. If you haven't tried No Line Water Colouring before it's best to start with a smaller image like the pumpkins before moving onto a larger image. To colour in the pumpkins I've used So Saffron, Mango Melody & Pumpkin Pie refills with the Water Painters. Make sure to stamp the image using a light coloured ink (stamped off once is better) onto a piece of Fluid 100 Water Colour paper. Below is a picture of most of the items I used to create my card. Not shown is a clear block, So Saffron refill, Memento Black ink and Soft Suede Stampin' Write Marker.
Use the links below to visit everyone's blogs to see their creations:

Watercolour Seahorse

A fun watercoloured Seahorse and shells. I started with the Playing With Patterns designer series paper and looking at the coordinating colours listed on the package. From there I chose Night of Navy and Coastal Cabana then paired those with Basic Gray and Whisper White. The Seahorse and shells are coloured using the Water Painters on Fluid 100 Watercolour paper. It's hard to see in the picture but I've added some Wink of Stella to the shells to make them more life like!

I shared how to creates these cards during my Facebook live last week. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me this Thursday at 7pm for my next live!

Colour Combo Blog Hop - September

Welcome to September's Colour Combo Blog Hop! This colour combo is a different one for me and I hope you enjoy my card! I had fun making it.
For colour combos I'm unsure of, like this one, I gather cardstock pieces of each colour in different sizes and play around with layers. Sometimes I'll use a colour I'm not keen on, like the Flirty Flamingo for ink but it worked to use a piece of cardstock instead for the sentiment to make it pop. Once I decided to use Night of Navy for the card base I went searching through the online store, looking at the designer series paper to see which packs had Night of Navy. The In Good Taste DSP was one of them and this tile mosaic piece worked so well! I'm finding the In Good Taste DSP to be very versatile for so many projects! The card was finished with the trees from the In The Pines stamp set stamped and one of the die cut using the new Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine.

 Thank you for stopping by! Next on the blog hop you'll visit Jenn's blog.

A Merry Hello card

My first glance through the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalogue I missed this cute stocking stamp set. This set has multiple stamps so you can chose to colour in the images using Stampin' Blends or Stampin' Write Markers or use the matching stamp to fill in the images quicker. For my card I used Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the little pieces of the stocking so I could stamp all 3 colours at the same time. The Merry Hello stamp set (shown below) is a Host reward that you can earn for free by hosting a qualifying workshop or by placing at least a $200 order (before shipping & taxes). You can find this stamp set on page 81 of the Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue.
This card was created during my Facebook live recently. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me this Thursday at 7pm for my next live!

Global Stamping Friends - Fancy Fold

Welcome to September's Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Fancy Fold cards. 
I went searching for Fancy Fold cards for inspiration and found one from Brenda Quintana that she calls the Pull Out Fancy Fold card. It was really easy to create and there are many options for die cutting the see through part. My card uses the Layering Circles to die cut the hole and the greeting but you could use the Stitched Rectangle dies, the Stitched Nested dies or even the Layering Squares or Ovals dies!
Here is the card pulled out so you can see the fancy fold part. The Shaded Spruce card base is a regular size - 8.5" x 5.5" scored in half on the long side. Cut the Whisper White cardstock to 8" x 5.25", then score at 4" and 6" on the long side to create the 2 folding panels on the right. One of the panels is covered with a piece of Plaid Tidings designer series paper. I've stamped the sentiment on the circle in Basic Gray and coloured the ivy using the Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blends.

Special Tile Card

A monochromatic card today! I love the flower stamp in the Tasteful Touches stamp set - so much detail in the stamped image. I stamped the flower 3 times on the whisper white piece after stamping the sentiment. When you have a large area you are stamping on multiple times its best to stamp the sentiment first so that you have an idea where you can stamp the flowers. The tile looking paper is from the In Good Taste designer series paper! So many great designs in that pack.
