Stampers by the Dozen August Hop



Welcome to my first month joining the lovely group of 'Stampers by the Dozen' for their monthly blog hop, a little about me, I'm a mummy of 2, I have a partner in crime! fiancé!!  who thankfully backs me and my Stampin' Up! journey 100%, I've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in the UK now for 6 years and love everything about it from the friendships to the products, I just wish I had of found SU sooner and joined straight away, but don't we all say that!?! it definitely was my best decision ever! I joined for the discount don't we all!?!  I'm now lucky enough to run monthly successful classes which feeds my habit nicely, I have a growing team of now 17 (downline) crafty ladies friends! we call ourselves Team Craftin' Folk and get together for crafting, chat and lots of laughs! I think that gives you a little about me!  now back to the hop!

This months hop theme is what ever we choose! it just has to be current product! wow the choices too many choices and lovely things to choose from! heres what I choose...


I've had a thing for my Watercolour pencils since we got part 2 for August only! and I'm loving creating backgrounds with them on shimmer cardstock, I've created an ombre effect with my Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo watercolour pencils and an aqua painter, creating backgrounds is great fun, and a great way to experiment and gain confidence with the pencils..


Don't forget the Part 2 Watercolour pencils are only available until 31st August.

The bride is stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Memento black ink, I've coloured her hair with my Soft Suede Stampin' Blends marker, and the flowers with 
Flirty Flamingo and Call Me Clover markers 


I added a bow with the beautifully elegant polka dot tulle ribbon, I also added so dainty Rose coloured metallic thread behind by Bride, finished off with some Iridescent sequins..

I hope you've enjoyed learning a little about me and I've inspired you to get creative with Watercolour pencils, Hope I get to hop with you next month if they'll have me??!!??

Stampin' Up! Watercoloured Unicorn Birthday card

So if you follow my facebook page (HERE) you will of seen I had a very 'Unicorn' weekend celebrating my nieces 6th Birthday... it started on Saturday with unicorn cupcakes and indoor play, the cupcakes I made are inspired by the super clever Cupcake Jemma who has an amazing you tube channel! go check her out she is soooooo clever!

Then Sunday we had a family day with more cake, yummy party food and of course presents and cards! now this year I was stumped as I made her a unicorn card last year!! who knew she would be even more unicorn mad this year! so glad I kept my Myths and Magical stamp set - Phew!!

Heres this years Unicorn card!!!!


My background is created with my Watercolour pencils on Shimmer Cardstock
I used Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Watercolour Pencils with an Aqua Painter to create the background, 

While the background was drying I coloured in my Unicorn also stamped on shimmer cardstock... using the same coloured pencils..


I die-cut 'Amelia' using my Alphabet Dies, and adhered with dimensional pads for the Eclipse effect background...

My unicorn ponytail was made with bakers twine from my stash all Stampin' Up! but retired stock Im so glad I;m a hoarder at times!! hehe


My Happy Birthday sentiment is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink again on Shimmer Cardstock, 

I added lots of sequins to finish! 


Here are the yummy cupcakes I made too

Kre8tors blog hop

Welcome to this months Kre8tors blog hop, I hope your enjoying our hop so far. 
Our theme this month  is 'Water' here is our brief:
Could include Oceans, Beach, Lake, Snow, rain, bath, shower, beverages - as long as it has water you can use it! so I went totally out of the 'box' and used actual 'water' with my watercolour pencils to create some quick water-coloured backgrounds..

Here are my cards:

The card above uses 4 watercolour pencils 
Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape and Night of Navy all from the new Part 2 watercolour pencil collection..

Card 2 below uses 3 watercolour pencils
Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo and Cherry Cobbler


Card 3 below uses pencils from part 1 and part 2 (available as below)
Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, 
Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy


Each background is created on Watercolour paper, I laid down the colour then blended over with my Aqua painter, these backgrounds are so fun to make... 


The  Watercolour pencils are as you would expect from Stampin' Up! amazing quality, smooth they can be used with our aqua painter, blender pens or alone to achieve amazing watercolour images.


Heres what you get in part 2,
