Flawed and fabulous with a slight “flaw”

Hello friends!

I hope your having a nice week.

We have a new Uniquely creative mini stamp and colour kit called flawed and fabulous for January. So here is the funny part…. it’s actually on sale right now at a discount price because it has a slight flaw….. but before I show you can I just say that the whole design team didn’t notice it and we’ve been working with this gorgeous stamp set for a few weeks now.

There is a typo error on the normal but the rest of the stamp is absolutely stunning. You get lots of goodies with this mini stamp kit and it’s ready to pre order now. The flowers are absolutely beautiful and uniquely creative have 200 of the “flawed” stamp sets ready now at the discounted price. There is more sets being produced without the flaw but they will not be in the shop for a while so if you like a bargain head on over Here and you can purchase the mini stamp and colour kit for $24.00.

How stunning are the flowers!! I coloured them in with copic markers and heat embossed the sentiment. I will definitely be using my “flawed” stamp set on lots of future products because other than the typo error the stamps are perfect and extremely high quality.

Thanks for stopping by today! I am going to start sharing my project life albums soon I completely got bogged down last year so I have a whole year to document but I thought I would try and do them both for this year month by month so it doesn’t seem so overwhelming.

Have a fabulous day!

Steps to make the card:

Add some foam tape around the edge and fill with sequins. Add another piece of paper from the stamp and colour kit to the back and press firmly. You should now have a shaker window. Adhere this to your card front with foam tape.

Watercolour card

Happy new year!

I Hope 2019 brings you lots of happiness and love.

I am up today on the papermilldirect blog with this card tutorial:

I thought it would be fun to try and water colour onto a textured card to see what the end result was. I honestly thought it would be a disaster but I was pleased with how it turned out.

The products I used are:

You will also need:

  • Vellum 
  • Water colour paints
  • Heat gun
  • White embossing powder
  • Sequins
  • Nuvo drops

Watercolour

To start with I made my card base using a piece of Perla Sirio Colour Card 290gsm which I trimmed at 4 1/4 and scored in half. I then trimmed down a piece of vellum and adhered this onto my card using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. This will show through but I am putting flowers over the top to hide the foam tape.

For the water colour flowers I used a piece of White Card Linen 255gsm. You will need your heat gun ready otherwise the paint will just flow everywhere. I started by painting the flower center and then quickly drying it with my heat gun. Once this was dry I added the petals and repeated the drying process. You will need to be careful not to use too much water as your paint will just start to run. I used a small amount of water and just a quick blast from the heat gun. Once all my flowers were complete I cut them out and adhered them onto my card using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then heat embossed the greeting with white embossing powder onto a piece of Black Plain Card 250gsm which I trimmed and adhered onto the flowers with some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To finish the card off I added some sequins and nuvo drops.

I had so much fun doing this and you can paint anything you wish for your card, the only trick is to be careful with not adding to much water and to have your heat gun to hand. As with all heat guns just be careful your paper does not get too hot as this could burn.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Good morning,

I am up on the papermilldirect blog today with this sweet card.

The products I used are:

You will also need:

  • Thank you die
  • Animal stamps
  • Copic markers
  • Pink pigment ink and sponge
  • White embossing powder
  • Heat gun
  • Sequins

Cat Thank You

To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of White Card Hopsack 255gsm to 4 1/4 and scored this in half. I then cut down another piece and gently added some pink pigment ink around the edges of the card. I then adhered this onto my card base using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then stamped my images onto a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and coloured them in with my copic markers. I then cut them out and adhered them onto the card using some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then used a piece of Ice Gold Pearlised Card 300gsm and die cut the greeting thank you. I adhered this onto my card using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

I then added a greeting which I heat embossed onto a piece of Navy Plain Card 240gsm using white embossing powder. I trimmed this down and adhered onto my card base with Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

To finish the card off I added some sequins and nuvo drops.

I love adding pigment ink to card especially the beautiful textured White Card Hopsack 255gsmas it really brings the texture out.

For the flower I used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and stamped this with Versafine black ink and then set some clear embossing powder over the top. I then heated this with my heat tool. This is now ready for you to watercolour. Once this is done I trimmed the flower and adhered this onto my card base using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.
