Incredible Like You #WWYS208


Need a pick me up? This is just the creation for you, after all who doesn't like the colours of the rainbow?

This week at WWYS we are showcasing the Incredible Like You stamp set. Such a great name, and very versatile with a mix of sentiments, stripes, flowers and foliage.


I went outside my square, and instead of utilising the flowers, I created using the stripes!



I opted for watercolour when creating my project, but you could do a simpler version by just stamping.

I added Frost White Shimmer spritz to the watercolour paper after my stamping was done, and to add shine to the sentiment I have clear embossed....... I forgot I had black embossing powder, silly me!


I started by spraying water on the watercolour paper before stamping, this means the ink can start doing it's magic from the instant it connects with the paper. Here's a quick clip of the process to create the card.


You might be wondering why I put the clear blocks on top of the card? As my watercolour paper was a little warped, I put the block on top to make sure there was a good connection whilst the glue was bonding, likewise I do this when using the corrugated layer to raise a level on the card.

The picture below shows the shimmer a little better, in the flesh there is a gorgeous shimmer, sadly it's a bit elusive in the photos.



Pop over and view the all projects created with this set by the Design Team, we would love you to participate in our weekly challenges at What Will You Stamp? why not play along with this week - We'd love to see what you create!

Botanical Butterfly Gala for Stampers Showcase Blog Hop


I'm so excited to be joining a new blog hop, this month we are showcasing Thank You themed projects. And I want to say a big thank you to group for my invitation, I'm looking forward to hopping with this wonderful group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe, there is going to be so much inspiration for creation!

Today, I've used the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper as the hero of my creation, I adore this particular design, the delicate detail of the butterflies and foliage with a mix of pastel colours... it's so me!


I love the detail of stitched framelits, but would you believe that I missed the stitched scalloped edge in the Be Mine framelits set until I had them in my hot little hands, and I was soooo excited, doesn't it give a lovely delicate feel to the project? I added a 2mm strip of Basic Black along the indent of the framelit, which was a lot easier than I first thought it would be (luckily - I had visions of destroying the project before it was finished)


How cute is the sentiment, with it's front intertwining with each other - such a beautiful detail. There are quite a few elements to this design, I created a quick clip of creating the card so you get a bit of an idea of what was involved.



Next up on the hop is Amanda Charlesworth from the UK, click on the icon below to see her wonderful creation:
