Facebook Live 4th September

By | 15th September 2017

It’s taken me a while to get these details up because I was busy getting ready for my Open House last weekend, so now I’m catching up! After our super easy cards for the previous week’s Facebook Live , I thought I’d better step things up a little this week so created some cards that are still simple and easy but use a variety of interesting techniques!

First up was a bit of Watercolouring! My example was made using Melon Mambo ink , but the one I made used Emerald Envy. I just love these rich jewel colours – very apt for the card. I think a set of thee would make a great gift for someone – especially if they were packaged in one of our great new Acetate Gift Boxes. I also loved the subtle shimmer that using our Shimmery White cardstock added.


  • Whisper White Base   10.5cm x 29cm
  • Basic Black  10cm x 14cm
  • Shimmery White  9.5cm x 13.5cm

Next was some Ombre Sponging. I love the ombre effect for watercolouring, stamping and sponging and have done it in many colours before but never with black. So, I gave it a go on this card and just loved the result! I think it looks especially effective on the embossed panel and the addition of the white die-cut flower gives it a really striking simplicity.


  • Basic Black Base   14.5cm x 21cm
  • Whisper White  14cm x 10cm  (2 pieces)
  • Whisper White  approx. 10cm x 8cm

Then it was time for an Aperture card. I love the way the die cut spills out of the circle and adds a little extra interest rather than just sticking it to the card front. I wasn’t very happy with the sentiment (I liked the words but not how the whole thing looked) on my example so changed it up on the one I made and much prefer it.


  • Whisper White Base 10.5cm x 29cm
  • Pool Party  10.5cm x 14cm
  • Whisper White 10cm x 13.5cm
  • Coffee Break DSP  9cm x 9cm
  • Champagne Foil  10cm x 14cm
  • Whisper White Scrap for sentiment

Finally, it was time for some Two-Step Stamping! For this I broke out the amazing Painted Harvest stamp set. I have to be honest – it wasn’t one that caught my eye at first but it grew on me and now I’m really loving it and all of the possibilities it offers. This card is done using Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry but I also shared some of the other colour combinations that I came up with. I had so much fun that I made a whole load of these and packaged them up in our Acetate Gift Boxes – and then offered them up as a prize to my lovely viewers! I have lots more ideas for this one, so watch this space…


  • Very Vanilla Base   10.5cm x 29cm
