Isn’t this a pretty suite!!  I do love it but I decided to case one of the other stamp sets in these pages.  I went with the cute little deer card on page 14.

I don’t have the A Good Day stamp set yet so I went with the Bird Banter stamp set.  I actually googled the colours of parrots to work out a more realistic colouring of the birds.

Firstly, I stamped the birds in Memento Black ink on Thick Whisper White card stock.

I then used the Pacific Point water colour pencil to create a sky.

And then grabbed a blender pen and coloured it more.  I then coloured all the birds and blended them.  I created the banner the same as the inspiration card.  Those new scallop punches are so cute!!

6 February 2012 – Wedding Card

It’s been such a hot day today that I stayed in the air conditioning and worked on a couple of ideas for cards for my next stamp club in a weeks time.  I recently purchased the Medallion stamp set which I have seen used on so many lovely cards and thought it was about time that I inked it up.

I just love Splitcoaststampers for inspiration (click here).  I found this great card by cgpop and gave it a wedding twist, seeing as I’m not ready to start Christmas cards just yet.  I’ve done a bit of embossing in white for the medallion and then gold for the sentiment.

Here’s a close up .

I decided to have a go at the Inkspirations Colour Challenge #13

I used my new circle scissor plus tool to make the circle in the top layer and had my first attempt at paper piercing around a circle.
