Be Inspired Design Team Hop

30 May 2018

Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from my wonderful friend and amazingly talented friend Brian King from the US. If you are starting here please make sure you hit the next button at the bottom of this post and hop all the way around. 

The theme for this hop is 'Create a Masculine Project '. 

I have been playing with some products from the new 2018-19 Annual Catalogue and the Lined Alphabet stamp set is so incredibly fun and versatile. It's a 'must' for any crafter!!

I created the watercolour background using the new In-Color called Call Me Clover (green) and Pacific Point (blue) and the large Aqua Painter brush on Shimmery White Cardstock. I wet the cardstock before starting and layer up the watercoloring using the ink from the lids of the ink pads. I always let it dry before adding another layer and I mix the colours together to create a washed look. I suggest paying with different colours until you get the desired effect - it's also a lot of fun!

The new stamp set Lined Alphabet is photopolymer so it is easy to line up the letters or overlap them. I wanted to use my White Stampin' Chalk Marker to highlight the letters however is has gone missing (I'm blaming Miss 15) - so I improvised with a white pencil.

I made this card for a lovely young dude, Harrison Smee who turned 10 this week. I know he will love it as he appreciates the effort of a handmade card - his Mum is my close stampin' friend Denita!

Next up to 'Be Inspired' by is my ever so lovely and talented friend Janneke de Jong from the Netherlands. I just adore this girl and I know you will love her project today:


I was inspired by my lovely friend Susan Wong for this project and a name tag she made. She's such a talent and I'm blaming her for me buying this stamp set! (I totally threw you under the bus Susan! Hahaha #sorrynotsorry!)

Thanks for hopping by!
