This week I have mixed things up a bit by using the image from one stamp set and the sentiment from another. The two sets come from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Catalogue and you can get either one FREE when you spend $90 (AU) or spend $180 (AU) and get both for FREE
How to make my card..
By the Bay stamp set 149739
Home to Roost149736
Early Espresso cardstock – Card base 14.5 x 21 cm, scoured at 10.5 cm & banner 9.7 x 1 cm
Pool Party cardstock – mat 14 x 10 cm & a small piece for under the banner 10.7 x .5 cm
White Embossing Powder, VersaMark, Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun
Watercolour Paper – stamp seagulls all over using Stazon ink.
Loosely colour the image with inks using Aqua Painter
Cut using the Stitched Framelit circle
Stamp the seagulls also onto the Crumb Cake cardstock with the Crumb Cake ink.
Emboss the sentiment onto the Early Espresso banner with the White Embossing Powder and heat set. TIP: Don’t cut your Banner down to above measurements until after Embossing. I use a Post-it Note to help like a handle when positioning under the Trimmer so that I can get a narrow strip.
Adhere the Pool Party Strip/Banner to back of the Banner peeking out a little at the bottom. Attach Mini Dimensionals to the underneath of banner.
Adhere card together.

Lovely Lattice 149730 by Stampin’ Up! has a charm to it with that slight vintage feel with the lattice behind the flowers. As soon as I saw it I had to have it because it screamed “Colour me!”.
If you love to colour then this is a must to have. You could colour with Blends, Watercolour pencils or with re-inkers and your Aqua pen. There are no fonts in this set but I don’t you will have any trouble finding one that will work well with it.
This beautiful stamp is one you can earn for FREE when you spend $90 in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue by Stampin’ Up!
Lovely Lattice is one of the new ‘Cling-Stamps’ by Stampin’ Up! The adhesive image label now ‘Clings’ and I mean ‘Cling’.

Once the watercolour paper 122959 was coloured and allowed to dry, the brick mask from Pattern Party Decorative Masks 144103 was placed over the top and sprayed with water. The water pulls the colour away from the areas not covered by the mask. After a few minutes the mask is removed and the watercolour paper allowed to dry again. You are left with a light brick pattern.

This card “With Sympathy” is a special order and a card I have enjoyed making even though its for a time of sadness.
I have used the Petal Palette Bundle 145974 for this card and the sentiment comes from Rose Wonder 140697.
The Petal Palette Bundle is available to be ordered “NOW!” from the Occasions Catalogue…if you live in Australia and would like a copy contact me and I will send you a copy,

Stamp floral image onto righthand side of Whisper White Cardstock in Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad. We want to use the left over Whisper White Cardstock on the card so be careful to where you stamp the image.
Using the Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzelberry watercolour pencil colour in the flowers with the Rich Razzelberry around the edges. Blend with the Blender Pen, blending the two colours together and to get a water colour effect.
Do the same on the leaves with Old Olive and a little of the Real Red…don’t use to much Real Red, as it will take over the Old Olive. Blend the colours together.
Then with the Thinlit Dyes cut out the flower image and put to one side.
Stamp the With Sympathy sentiment also in Basic Black onto the left side of where we cut the Flowers from.
Attach the Whisper White Cardstock to the So Saffron Cardstock using snail adhesive – card front
Wrap Organza Ribbon around card front and tie in a bow.
Place dimentionals in to back of Floral embellishment and slightly offset over the top of where it was diecut from.
