Twinkling H2O Cards Made Up

I stamped the flower and butterfly images using Versamark ink in my Tim Holtz stamping platform. I then heat embossed with Wow Embossing Powder Opaque Bright White. I coloured the images with LuminArte Twinkling H2O’s – Ivy Iris, Cherry Sorbet and Razzleberry. I also used these colours for the background of the butterflies. I matted the finished panels in coordinating card and made the cards up. As a finishing touch I splattered some of the same colours using a brush on the backgrounds and added pearl gems or Nuvo Drops in Pink Champagne and Wisteria Purple. Finished off with sentiments and peel offs.

Watercolour Flowers

I’ve not really done much water colouring but after watching a few videos on YouTube I had a go. I picked up a few tips and this was my first attempt on watercolour card. I used a small palette I already had plus my Twinkling H2O’s.

The main tip I saw was to lay water down on the pre stamped Versamark and white embossed image before adding the colour. I’m very pleased with the result so will be practicing more in future as I think water coloured flowers look beautiful.

Lilac Fairies

I’m really into my pinks, lilacs and greens at the moment – it helps having embellishments like Nuvo Drops, Shimmer Powders and Distress Oxides all in those colours as I then have a selection of similar colours to use. This is the front, inside left and inside right of the same card. I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide for the front background and various rubber stamps. The insert and die cuts are from a Hunkydory kit.

Neverending Card

My first attempt at a neverending card with the kit free with @papercraftermag. Could drive you crackers! I decorated it with the toppers and stamps in the kit plus a few stickers I already had. Will definitely make another one / I love unusual shaped cards 💙

Getting Started

Hi

I’m just starting a blog to showcase the handmade cards that I make. You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest / all called Sapphire Card Crafts with the same logo. I will share what I make. I have been crafting many years but now have the time to get creative and make more cards. It’s my way of being creative without having to draw. This is my latest card made using Kanban Cards Magnificence and Cutterdies Collection set. I just love butterflies 🦋

Happy crafting.
