I did, and failed epically.&nbsp; I ended up buying three different sets of markers over the past couple of years and eventually decided they were not for me, Copics are my happy place.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: center;">Then I watched more videos, the ones that address the paper and eureka, success at last!&nbsp; Now I just need to find a way to use up all the watercolour pads I bought and failed on, I don't do things by half, that's for sure,</p><p style="text-align: center;">I stamped the <b><a href="https://crafts4less.co.uk/products/woodware-clear-singles-floral-wonder-jgs758" target="_blank">Floral Wonder by Woodware</a></b> on to Strathmore Bristol Smooth card with Lawn Fawn Jellyfish ink and used Zigs to colour the image.</p><p style="text-align: center;">069 Blush, 230 Pale Rose, 044 Deep Green, 043 Olive Green and 098 Pale Dawn Grey for shading/shadows.</p><p style="text-align: center;">I used a sentiment from the MFT Bitty Birthday stamp set and sequins from <b><a href="https://www.lucys-shop.com/products/beauty-sparkly-shaker-selection" target="_blank">Little Things from Lucy - Beauty</a></b>&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: center;"><br /></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

I've used the other new Slimline Embossing Folder for my card, this one is <b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2ww3a" target="_blank">Slimline Embossing Folder Thatched</a></b>.&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: center;">As with the previous card, I inked up a panel of cardstock with Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Iced Spruce, Rustic Wilderness and Pine Needles before running it through the die cutting machine with the embossing folder.&nbsp; I then took a fine sanding block and lightly sanded off the thatched pattern to help it pop off the page.</p><p style="text-align: center;">I die cut three layers of cardstock with the <b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2ww3q" target="_blank">Slimline Waves Die</a></b>, adhered them together and then adhered to the embossed panel.&nbsp; This was fixed to a slimline card blank.</p><p style="text-align: center;">I coloured the cheeky pandas from the <b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2ww41" target="_blank">Panda Butt Clear Stamp Set</a></b> with copic markers using C9, 7, 5 and C0,00 plus a touch of R30 for the cheeks then cut them out and popped them on the card front with some foam tape.&nbsp; I also stamped and cut out one of the bamboo images for the panda to climb on.</p><p style="text-align: center;">I finished off the card with a sentiment stamped and heat embossed - I used the <b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2ww4a" target="_blank">Butterflies Clear Stamp Set</a></b>, the font is just perfect.&nbsp; I'm trying to make more generic cards, I'm drowning in birthday cards I've made so many!</p><p style="text-align: center;">Back soon with a first attempt with Zig markers.</p><p style="text-align: center;">Products from</p><p style="text-align: center;"><b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2ww3a" target="_blank">Slimline Embossing Folder Thatched</a><br /></b><b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2ww3q" target="_blank">Slimline Waves Die</a><br /></b><b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2ww41" target="_blank">Panda Butt Clear Stamp Set</a><br /></b><b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2ww4a" target="_blank">Butterflies Clear Stamp Set</a></b></p><p style="text-align: center;"></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

So, I'm back ..... more on the sorry saga of my life towards the end of this post for those that wanted to know where I've been.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><br /></p><p style="text-align: center;"><b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2wj8s" target="_blank">Whimsy Stamps</a></b>&nbsp;have a new release today, with a totally new product line ... Slimline Embossing Folders! I have used the <b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2wj8b" target="_blank">Wavelengths Embossing Folder</a></b> for this card, along with the <b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2wj8y" target="_blank">Butterflies Clear Stamp Set</a></b>,&nbsp;and the <b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2wj90" target="_blank">Slimline Birthday Scallops Die</a></b> for the frame.&nbsp; I also made a matching envelope.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><br /></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-4wGE-SQB_fM/YHFsEhlKMlI/AAAAAAAA1qk/eaQTrrz4aCIsTr9wJ2MHZPo-6B8kI8VGACLcBGAsYHQ/s1500/Bev-Rochester-Whimsy-Stamps-Wavelengths-Slimline-Embossing-Folder-100421.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em;

I used Distress Oxides in Aged Mahogany, Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar and Antique Linen.&nbsp; I LOVE this colour combination.&nbsp; I trimmed off a piece to use for the butterflies then ran the panel and embossing folder through the Spellbinders Platinum.&nbsp; This is the time I'm so glad I bought the full sized version as I could emboss in one pass.</p><p style="text-align: center;">I die cut the frame three times and adhered them together for stability then assembled the card.&nbsp; I stamped and heat embossed the butterflies, just reversing the ombre colours when adhering to the card so they would stand out better.&nbsp; I finished off with a heat embossed sentiment also from the Butterflies Stamp Set and some sparkly crystals.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><br /></p><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

But, things are on the up now and I've actually been motivated to make a few cards.&nbsp; I'd forgotten how to colour, and even had to relearn Photoshop!&nbsp; This old brain needs to be used else the cobwebs set in!</p><p style="text-align: center;">Thank you for sticking with me&nbsp;❤️️</p><p style="text-align: center;"><br /></p><p style="text-align: center;">Products from&nbsp;<b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2wj8s" target="_blank">Whimsy Stamps</a></b>&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: center;"><b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2wj8b" target="_blank">Wavelengths Embossing Folder</a><br /></b><b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2wj8y" target="_blank">Butterflies Clear Stamp Set</a><br /></b><b><a href="https://shrsl.com/2wj90" target="_blank">Slimline Birthday Scallops Die</a></b></p>Bevhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05910582143894703698noreply@blogger.com19tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1129223025657439626.post-76840026970376756832020-12-20T14:23:00.000+00:002020-12-20T14:23:07.834+00:00Gnome for the holidays<p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

I did manage to squeeze in some time to put this card together using this sweet gnome from the <b><a href="https://whimsystamps.com/collections/october-2020/products/gnome-for-the-holidays-clear-stamps?aff=13" target="_blank">Gnome for the Holidays stamp set</a></b>.&nbsp;
