Colorful Seasons Card: Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello my friends and welcome to the official Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop! We are a group of 20 Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the globe who have been chosen to share our creations with you. Thank you for visiting me in Canada!

My card today uses the stunning Colorful Seasons Bundle of stamps and dies. It's a large stamp set with tons of images and sentiments, and an absolutely fab set of framelits. Check it out:
I've been using this set a lot for my #CardsAcrossCanada campaign. I hope you'll choose to join me in my card sending mission. Full details HERE.

Now let's talk details on today's card.
To create this background I first did some watercolouring with my Aqua Painter and a selection of blue inks on Watercolour Paper. While it was drying, I used the solid maple leaf die to make my own mask with a piece of Window Sheet. It's so easy to create your own masks with any die and the Window Sheets. I love them! Next it was time for a layer of Embossing Paste on top of that watercolouring. I love this background technique and I hope you'll give it a try too.

There is a full list of supplies used on today's card at the end of this blog post with clickable links to my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop.


Don't miss the The Little Piggy Online Class - it's nearly full!


Full details on this class HERE.

I spoil my customers because I'm so incredibly thankful they've chosen me as their Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. So when you shop with me in July, get ready to be spoiled too!

This Little Piggy Card: GDP096

Hello friends! Today I'm playing with my friends over at Global Design Project to case the talented Tanja Kolar. 
I've been on a roll with the This Little Piggy Stamp Set, so I decided to take the layout of this card and the 'wings' to create my own version.
Is the piggy with the Embossing Paste clouds not just the cutest?! I coloured her quickly and easily with the Watercolour Pencils. If you don't have these yet, they are a MUST. 

Like I said, I've been on a roll with this stamp set. Yesterday I opened up my This Little Piggy Online Class and it's filling fast. I guess you were all waiting patiently for this one!
