This card uses the Scrappy Strip Technique from Australian demo Bruno Bertucci. I think the papers in this suite work really well and I was really please with how this card turned out.

Free as a Bird Blended Background

Free as a Bird Colour blended

I’ve got the brayer and inks again, this time to make a background for the trees. Free as a bird seemed like the best fit for this card out of the sets I have, but I think the new set Birds and Branches would work really well.

Pootlers’ Annual Catalogue Swap

Pootlers Annual Cat swap 2020

When we have a new catalogue the Pootlers team do a swap using items in the new catalogue. This was the card that I sent out to my group. It was a lot of fun to do as the background was made using the Shaving Foam Technique.

I think this is such a lovely idea and very simple to make.

Tomorrow I will be sharing my swaps from the Pootlers Team’s Annual Catalogue swap.

Until next time, happy crafting

Tasteful labels Card

Tasteful labels

This suite makes it so easy to make a masculine card.  The Designer Series Papers with all the wood, tile and textile effects make it that little bit different.

As promised, I have one of the projects that we created at the Weekend at the Pinkies Virtual Retreat. This one was designed by the very talented Martin Stone, check out his website at https://martinsmayhem.co.uk/

Ink blending technique

I had so much fun with this ink blending technique that I then went on to make the green card. My technique needs a little refining (I ended up covered in ink) 😆, which is fine by me as I think a card done in all the Stampin’ Up! colours would be an afternoon well spent.

Tomorrow, I will bring you another retreat project.

Until next time, happy crafting
