Making Use of My Stamps..L's!

Hello and welcome back!  It's Sunday which means it's time for another Making Use of My Stamps series.  As you know, the last letter picked was L.  I've made 3 cards using stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn, Lil' Inker and Love Cynthia.

First up is a card made using the When it Rains, Look for a Rainbow stamp set from Love Cynthia.  I used some new, super inexpensive liquid watercolours to create a night sky or galaxy background.  I did add some of the metallic paints from the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolours (36) for a little shimmer.  I am in need of a good white paint for splatters!!

I also used the same paints to colour that sweet image!

I messed up on the sentiment but I didn't want to cover it up.  And that's card #1!

Next, I used the Blue Skies Stamp Set and Co-ordinating Dies for this card:

I white heat embossed the images before colouring them with, you guessed it, my new watercolours!  This card came out super cute except that I had so much warping on mt watercolour paper that it actually started to curl the cardbase!!  I have to start taping my paper down!

A bit of Glossy Accents, sparkle pen and sequins finish this card off.

And lastly, I used the Sweet Celebration stamp set and Co-ordinating Dies along with the Celebrate Word Die, all from Lil' Inker Designs.  This card has NO watercoloring :)

The florals in this set are beautiful.  And I've recently become addicted to Catherine Pooler Inks so that's what I used here.  I left the cardbase white (which was hard for me!) and simply adhered all the die cuts with liquid glue and foam adhesive.

This one is my favourite!  

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my newest cards!  I hope you enjoyed. And I hope you'll take some time to give your older stamps some love!

See you soon!!

  1. Love, love, watercolouring. I saw Debby Hughes do her amazing galaxy background yesterday and she uses white Gouache for the splatters. I bought some a couple of weeks ago and I need to use it, but from the demonstration I definitely think the gouache is the way forward. Xx


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
