Today's post is part 1 in a two part series about my next card. Using the new Watercolour Pencils and the SAB freebie Inside the Line DSP. This paper pack has 12 sheets, 3 each of four designs and is free when you spend $90 between the 4th of Jan and the 31st of March.
This piece is 14.3cm x10cm and has just been coloured with Watercolour Pencils.
Come back tomorrow to see how it changes once water is applied and the finished card.
Today's card is bought to you thanks to the big brown box of preorder goodies that arrived yesterday.
Two of my favourite products are the Beautiful You stampset, and the Watercolour Pencils. Background paper is from the new Urban Underground DSP.
And here are the beautiful Watercolour pencils. Pack of 13 for $27.75 available from Jan 4th.
I can't wait to show you the Christmas card I have for you tomorrow. I have to delivery it to the recipient first though. See you tomorrow.
I used this Christmas card in a couple of my classes recently and it was very well received. It was a great way for my attendees to practice their Bigshot skills. Just remember to cut the shape, in this case the Christmas tree from Santa's Sleigh, before embossing, in this case the Dynamic Cable Knit Embossing folder😬.
I have just returned from a wonderful 3 days in Brisbane at the Stampin' Up! onstage event. Great friends, fantastic presentations from Stampin Up staff and other demonstrators made for a fantastic experience.
I was lucky enough to be chosen to complete samples for two of the stamp sets from the upcoming Occasions Catalogue.
Here are the samples I made with the Cool Treats stamp set and framelits.
Ombré Peach ice cream
Stacked Cool Treats
Gelato Cool Treats
Rich Emerald Cool Treats
Hope you like them, I'll be back soon with the samples from the other set.
What a wonderful three days I have just had with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators in Brisbane for the Onstage Live Event.
We caught up with old friends, got to see the upcoming Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogues (they are amazing!)and were generally spoilt.
We are not allowed to share and pic of the actual products or catalogues just yet, but here's a photo of myself and my downlines waiting with over 600 other demos for the first session to start on Thursday.

I love this years Christmas DSP. The gift below features the Presents and Pinecones DSP from the Holiday catalogue. I have made heaps of these for my up coming marketstalls, as I think they make perfect teachers or coaches presents.
As this paper is part of a range that includes a stamp set and coordinating thinlits, it's super easy to make beautifully designed gifts and cards. If you're not sure of the colours used in the DSP, they are listed on the back of the pack for easy reference.
Here's a photo of the inside of the card and the matching Christmas Pines stamp set.
The following card features my favourite non christmas DSP, Blooms and Bliss. This card was completed at my Girls Day In Pink Day last weekend and was very popular. With 6 double sided designs to choose from these paper packs make planning card classes easy.
The butterfly cut from Blushing Bride Glimmer paper, with Butterfly Basics Thinlits adds a special touch.
I'm the last hop on this blog hop, if you would like to go back to the start click on the following arrow, or the full list of participants is listed below with links to their blogs.
I am back with the instructions for this very easy but effective technique.
All you need for this technique is,
either watercolour paper or Shimmery White paper from Stampin' Up!,
A spray bottle containing water,
an Aquapainter and
an ink refil, preferably in a fairly dark colour. I have used Night of Navy.
Spray the paper with water from a spray bottle to dampen the paper.
Using the Aqua Painter, pick up a small amount of the Reiner off the plastic lid and apply generously to the paper.
Whilst the paper is still wet sprinkle the salt onto the paper. The amount of salt you use will determine how 'blotchy' your background is when it dries.
Allow to dry completely, use a heat gun to speed the process if necessary, but apply gently so as not the blow the salt off before it is dry.
Once dry, rub the salt off and your background is revealed.
I have used the same technique on the background of this card.
