Stampin' Up! Inspired By Nature Crafty Cupcakes Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for October 2017. Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products. You are currently
 visiting Jenny Dowding in UK and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list.

 This month our theme is "Inspired by Nature" and I am using the SU Tranquil Tulips Stamp set today

Inspirations also from my birthday card from Jillian of "Purple Jelly Designs"

The card base is Old Olive with Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla matts.
I have used 5 inks that tone well together and made one Tulip in each colour. I also have added some lilac Grape Hyacinths as a contrasting colour.

On the inside of the card I have stamped a sentiment and also some Grape Hyacinths

Watercolour Stampin' Up! "Remarkable You" Weekend Blog

Welcome to my Weekend Blog 

Today I have made a watercolour card using my Stampin'Up!(SU) Aqua Painters and the SU ink pads.

I have used the SU Remarkable You stamp set and Stampin' Up inks

I started the card with Melon Mambo Cardstock 
I have stamped the flowers on watercolour paper and then coloured it in using inks

Once the flowers are completed, I have fussy cut them out. 

Top Tip:  I have found that if I paint over the lines of the design when I am going to fussy cut it out, you are less likely to get white edges to your design. See below - top one was painted over the lines and the bottom one not

I stamped the sentiment and used a sponge dauber to colour the edges of the paper with ink as I was putting Very Vanilla card in top of Very Vanilla 

Put you card together with Liquid Glue and dimensionals 

Card Recipe:-

Remarkable You stamp set for flower
Watercolour Words stamp set for sentiment
Melon Mambo card 1/2 A4 sheet scored and folded
Very Vanilla card 2 x 2 1/2" and 
SU Ink pads - Melon Mambo, So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive
