Hi All, welcome to today’s blog post. I love the touch of gold on cards whether it be gold embossing powder, gold paper, sequins ribbon or card stock. A little touch of it always make your cards look elegant.

For today’s card set I have used a designer series paper that has a gold embossed lace pattern on it. To keep the gold touch through out the card I have used gold embossing powder for the Cherry Blossom stampset which has been heat set on watercolour paper.  I have coloured the images with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers. Inspired-by-Stamping-Cherry-Blossoms-Stamp-Set
The sentiment used for the cards is from the Spring Bouquet stampset. The thank you script font from this set is just elegant. The cards itself has been created rather simple. I hope you like today’s creation.

Inspired By Stamping : Spring Bouquet Watercolouring Card

Hello everyone and welcome to Inspired By Stamping Release week!
Today’s card is a simple watercolouring card. The stampset featured in today’s card is the Spring Bouquet.
I find it best to use good quality watercolour cardstock to avoid any pilling. I like to use Antique Linen Distress Ink to stamp the image so I can see where I need to watercolour. I played with Peerless Transparent watercolours , Cadmium Yellow, Marigold Yellow, Arbutus Pink, Tea Rose Pink, Heliotrope, Mauve, Olive Green, Veridian Green & Neutral Tint.
For the sentiment I have used Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Hope you enjoy today’s creation.

Inspired By Stamping – Flower of the month Pansy

Hi All, welcome to release week I am very excited to have played with with the new stampset Flower of the Month – Pansy.
Watercolouring has been my favourite technique to do with colouring flower images. 
I like trying the no line colouring technique where I stamp using a very light water soluble ink like Antique Linen Distress Ink for the colouring I have used Peerless Transparent waterolours. The colours used are Olive Green, Grass Green, Marigold Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Cobolt Blue, Amethyst, Mauve & Neutral Tint. To brush the colours on I have used an aqua painter brush which holds water when squeezed water distributes through the brush. This type of brush allows me to have more control of  the water  distribution on the water colour card stock.
For the sentiment I have used the Heartfelt Gratitude stampset, this is one of my favourite go to Thank You stampset as you have 18 sentiments to choose from.  The ink used is Onyx Black ink for the sentiment as I love the crisp detail stamp image it leaves behind on all types of textured cardstock. 
Inspired By Stamping has loads of awesome sentiments in their store don’t forget to drop on by and have a squizzy.
For the base card stock I have used a Naturals Confetti white along with Plum and Black card stock. I ran our of black linen thread so I used my black copic marker and coloured the twine myself. 
For an added extra element I have created a pennant / flag on the top right with black card stock.
I have entered this card in the following Blog Comp –

Thank Card It’s Friday – Lovely Lace Thanks

 
Today’s card is a simple but elegant window card.
I just love the softness that the Blushing Bride Ribbon brings to this card, it adds a touch of femineity to the card. I absolutely love this I Love Lace background stamp it is such a pretty and elegant stamp to use. This card you can pretty much make in bulk it is that simple. I like cards you can mass produce to save time and still know that it handmade just for your recipient.
 
The paper flower is from Inspired By Stamping.
