Sheltering Tree Detatchable Bookmark Card





I shared this card with my Stampin Up Demonstrator friends at our monthly shoebox swap get-together, where we each provide materials and instructions for a card or other project using Stampin Up products.

This one uses the Sheltering Tree stamp set from the 2015 Occasions catalogue. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in the same catalogue. The colours used are Old Olive, Early Espresso and Tangello Twist. The card base is Old Olive and the panels are actually Very Vanilla, although they appear almost white.

If you'd like to learn how to make this card, I'll be teaching this one at an upcoming card class, so let me know if you are interested.

Happy Stamping,
Tina

Diamond Gatefold card



This card was shown to us by my friend Jenny at our monthly shoebox swap get-together, where we each provide materials and instructions for a card or other project using Stampin Up products.

This card uses the gorgeous Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper from the 2015 Occasions Catalogue. The flower image is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in the same catalogue, and I've also used the Hardwood background stamp on the triangle panels.

Clutch Purse Birthday Card



This card was shown to us by my friend Tamara at our monthly shoebox swap get-together, where we each provide materials and instructions for a card or other project using Stampin Up products.

Here is a fancy fold card that looks a bit like a clutch purse when closed, then opens up to reveal 2 panels of flowers.

The stamps used are from the Butterfly Basics set from the 2015 Occasions Catalogue, and I've coloured them using Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blendabilities (alcohol markers).

If you'd like to make this card and need some of the supplies, please contact me or order online at my store - the button is in the sidebar on the right.

Happy Stamping,
Tina

Corner Garden Watercolour Card For You - Video




I've uploaded the video that shows how I created this card, using a watercolour background that I created in an earlier session. I wasn't happy with how the background came out, so I wanted to cover up most of it with a stamp, and thought this background stamp would be perfect.

I stamped the image with VersaMark and then added white embossing powder, which was heat set using my heat tool. Then I coloured in the image using ink refills and my aqua pen, and a Daffodil Delight marker for the centres of some of the flowers.

Here is a link to the video:  http://youtu.be/el3Tcqc0E5s

Watercolour Bokeh Card



A while ago I had tried the Bokeh technique using ink refills to create a watercolour background on watercolour paper. The white circles have faded quite a bit since applying them, so it is a very subtle effect. Colours used are Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Tangello Twist.

The sentiment is from Perfect Pennants.

This is one of the techniques I'll be teaching in an upcoming class, so if you are interested, please let me know.

Happy Stamping,

Salt Watercolour Backgrounds technique video

Hi,


I've managed to finish and upload a video to YouTube on creating unique backgrounds using water, salt, stamp pads or reinkers on watercolour paper.


If you can't see the video below, here is the link: http://youtu.be/8CvZ1MopHCQ

It took about 4.5 hours to upload, then I noticed the glaring spelling mistake afterwards. I don't think I'll reload it.

I've also filmed me making a card with the first background I made - the Corner Garden card I posted recently. Hopefully I'll get time to edit that and put that on YouTube as well.

Happy creating!
Tina

Here is the other card I made for my brother's recent birthday. I made this one first, using a background I made a while ago after learning the technique on Stamp TV.  The design layout of the card is inspired by one done by Chris Parker-Barnes.

This technique will be featured in an upcoming class...

Happy Stamping,

Golf themed birthday card

Golf card www.tinascreativestudio.com

Here's one of the cards I made for my brother's recent birthday. He enjoys golf so I while I was looking for ideas on Pinterest I came across something like this and thought it would be suitable for him.

I made another card for my mum to give to him, which I'll share tomorrow.

Happy Stamping,

Corner Garden Watercolour card for you

corner garden watercolour card www.tinascreativestudio.com




Here is my first card finished for 2015. I didn't plan this card, it sort of happened. I was trying out some watercolour background techniques on watercolour paper and created a few different backgrounds. I decided to stamp over the background and then colour in the image.

If you'd like to learn the techniques used in this card, let me know. If you live in Adelaide South Australia I'll be running technique classes soon. I have also shot a video of the creation of the card panel, but it hasn't been edited yet.

Happy Stamping,
Tina
