Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges - Theme Challenge #003

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Denita, from Australia, and I am a Design Team Member for the Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges Blog Hop.
We would love for you to join in with our 'Festive Challenge' #003 for this week and you can add your 'Festive' creation to our gallery here.
 
I have a lovely and simple Christmas card for you to CASE, and not a traditional colour in sight. (I was inspired by a card on page 13 of the Holiday Catalogue.)
 
 I love 'Crumb Cake', and I love water colouring! So, I have combined both of my loves for this little creation.
I also love that you can get all your Christmas cards done with this design. Get your cardstock ready; cut it all up for the card base and also a mat to be embossed with the 'Falling Snow TIEF'.
Hint: You can stamp Santa and his sleigh prior to embossing; the stamped image slips in between the snow fall and it's easier this way than stamping after you have embossed the cardstock.
 
I cut up the 'Shimmery White' cardstock ready for the water colouring.
Now, this is the fun bit! Add water to the 'Shimmery White' cardstock using an 'Aqua Painter'. Then add the inks of your choice; I have used 'Lemon Lime Twist' & 'Emerald Envy' from the Classic Stampin' Pads.
 
Once your water colouring is completely dry, stamp your sentiment on top of the ombre colours. I then adhered some 'Basic Black' cardstock backing to my sentiment and used 'Stampin' Dimensionals' to layer it on my finished creation.
 
Thankyou so much for visiting me, and I hope to have inspired you for some Christmas card crafting? Make sure you visit all the Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenge Design Team blogs for more 'Festive' fun.
Have a wonderful day. D x

 I have chosen 'Embossing Paste' and Colouring for my creation.
 
I coloured the stamped image using a 'Blender Pen' and ink - 'Pear Pizzazz' & 'Lemon Lime Twist' for the leaves, and 'Crushed Curry', 'Sweet Sugarplum' & 'Berry Burst' for the flowers. I added some 'Sahara Sand' to outline the flourish.
 
The 'Layering Ovals Framelits Dies' are a perfect fit for the sentiment. I used 'Naturally Eclectic DSP' for the scalloped oval - 'Berry Burst' with a slight water washed effect throughout the paper.
And how cute is the 'Berry Burst Bitty Bow'? Too cute!
 
Next up was the 'Embossing Paste'. I just love this stuff! 
I wanted some glitter in my 'Embossing Paste' for a bit of sparkle; take a small amount of Embossing Paste from the tub and dollop it onto a small plate.
(A ceramic surface is easy to clean up). 
Add a sprinkle of 'Gold Stampin' Glitter' and mix together. 
Spread the glittery Embossing Paste over the *'Pattern Party Decorative Mask' onto cardstock.
*Remember to wash your Decorative Mask straight away!
 
*Hint: in case you have too much paste for 1 item, have a couple of pieces of cardstock at the ready to use up the rest of the paste. I had some glittery Embossing Paste left over and created part of the mandala for a 'To make later' project. 
 
Thankyou so much for visiting, and check out the Just Add Ink Design Teams creations. They are pretty awesome! Have a wonderful week. D x

Colour INKspiration Blog Hop #CI19

Hello, and welcome to my blog! Have you just arrived from Lou's blog?
I just love what Lou created for this Challenge.
The Colour INKspiration Crew have a new Colour Challenge #CI19, and we would love for you to join in and create something using the colours below - you can add your creation to the gallery here.
Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate & Garden Green.

I have made some little notecards using the gorgeous 'Weather Together' photopolymer stamp set & coordinating 'Umbrella Weather Framelits Dies'...

*I have to confess; I made my creations without the 'Garden Green'! 
And I didn't have time to make anything else. Eeek!
I water coloured some 'Shimmery White' cardstock with 'Garden Green' ink & an 'Aqua Painter'. I added touches of the 'Garden Green' to each notecard - some dots, a heart and the edging of the umbrella. Phew!

These notecards are very quick and easy to create.
From 1 sheet of 'Daffodil Delight' A4 cardstock you get 3 notecards measuring 8.5cm x 17cm (scored at 8.5cm)

I didn't add a sentiment to this notecard.
I think the water coloured 'Garden Green' heart is a sweet gesture.

The borders on the top and bottom of the notecards have been stamped with 'Smoky Slate' ink. I stamped off the original image prior to stamping onto the 'Whisper White' cardstock.

 Thankyou for visiting my blog, and keep on hopping to see what the Crew has in store for you. Next up is the amazingly awesome Jackie Aitken. Get ready for a truly inspiring creation. D x
