Belair Creative Cards February 2018



This month we will be using the stamp set Petal Palette. This stamp set is so pretty and very versatile.  It has a whole suite to compliment any project you make with this beautiful set.


This first card is on a base of soft sky.  I have used the square frame kits cut the bubbles and fizz dsp and create a whisper white frame. I have stamped the bird and flowers in memento ink and used Stampin Blends to colour in.  Colours used were pool party and old olive.


The second card is on a base of pink pirouette with a layer of black run through the big shot with the Petal Pair textured impressions embossing folder.  The flower is coloured in with calypso coral, pumpkin pie and old olive.  This is layered on top of copper metallic thread.  The greeting is from Perennial birthday stamp set.


Belair Creative Cards meets at 130 Garden Grove Parade, Adamstown 
Thursday 22nd February at 7:30pm and Saturday 24th February at 2pm.  All are welcome!!!

Beautiful Day CASE and my take on it

As you know, I love casing cards.  I am not overly creative, but have a good eye for reproducing something that I like with minimal instruction.  

Today I cased the card below from Bj Peters, a fellow demonstrator.  You can view her card here.  

I used glossy white for my layer.


My take on BJ's card.  I also used glossy card for this one too, I love the way the brusho interacts on the glossy card.  For this card I have used the Prussian blue and spritzed with alcohol.  The great thing about brusho is that every background is different.  You can so many variations from even just one colour.  The flower is stamped in versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder.  I have then coloured in the flowur with marina mist and smoky slate stampin blends.

Amazing You - One flower three different looks

The stamp set today is the floral image from Amazing You sale.a.bration stamp set.



My first card I stamped the image in dapper denim randomly over my layer to create a collage effect.  I then stamped the image on whisper white scrap and cut it out using my brother scan n cut machine.  I then coloured it in with an aquapainter with dapper denim.  Card is layered on a base of dapper denim.


This time I stamped my images in black and coloured in with dapper denim and pool party.  Loved the way this turned out.  As in card one, I stamped the image on whisper white scrap and cut it out and attached that over the top of one of the stamped images on my layer.  Loved the way this turned out.  Very pretty.


My last card I stamped the images in dapper denim and coloured them in with dapper denim.  

So there you have it.  Three cards using very similar product but three different looks.  Which do you prefer?  I love all three.

Birthday Blooms CASE

Today I would like to share a card that I cased from a very talented fellow demonstrator Stephanie Fischer.  I just love her work.  You can see her original post here.

Here is my take on her card.

This was such a fun card to make.  I have used the flower from birthday blooms stamp set and coloured the flower in using Stampin' Blends.  These are Stampin' Up!s alcohol markers.  I am still learning how to use them, so my colouring skills need some fine polishing.  The frame is using the Lots of Labels framelits.  The greeting is from You're Inspiring stamp set.


My first card is using pink pirouette and calypso coral and smoky slate.


This card I used the stamp pads to watercolour using perfect plum and fresh fig.


My third card using daffodil delight.


My last card I used pool party.

You're Inspiring!!!! with brusho

I'm sure by now that you would have noticed I just love brusho!!!!  Here are some more cards that I have made with the technique I shared on my blog a few weeks ago.  You can see the original technique here.


The image I have added to my card today is the daffodil from the stamp set you're inspiring.  I just love it.  I have coloured in with daffodil delight and the green is wild wasabi and shading on leaf is smoky slate.  


On my second card I have added some texture using shimmering white embossing paste and sweet soiree decorative masks.  I was thrilled with the way this card turned out.
