Blessings of Home with Watercolor Pencils

I’ve recently been sharing some projects I’ve made with the Blessings of Home Bundle from the Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue.

This is the third project I made while I had the Bundle on my desk.

Here, I’ve stamped the image from the Blessings of Home Stamp Set several times in the background, and again on a separate piece of cardstock. This one has been cut out using the coordinating Flowers of Home Dies from the Bundle.

Using my Watercolor Pencils, I’ve coloured the flowers and then used a Blender Pen to help soften and blend the colouring.

Once I had coloured the image, I chose a coordinating colour for my layer, Pumpkin Pie.

The separate flower is raised up on Dimensionals.

A sentiment from the Stamp Set sits on a piece of Crinkled Seam Binding on the flower. By using a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend Marker, I was able to match the colour of the ribbon with my layer.

For a finishing touch, I chose to use some pretty Polished Dots in Calypso Coral.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my little trip into the Blessings of Home Bundle. It’s not unusual for me to make several projects at once while I have a set out on my desk.

Don’t forget that you could grab this Bundle, plus a FREE SAB item if you place an order by 28th Feb.

Blessings of Home in Misty Moonlight Monochrome

I recently shared a project I made after losing my crafting mojo.

Here is another card I made using the Blessings of Home Bundle and coordinating products from Heart & Home Suite Collection.

These items can be found in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue and a similar design layout as before.

This time, I’ve used a piece of the Heart & Home DSP to create the edge pattern.

Then, a piece of the Denim Ribbon sits across the join and one of the doilies in Misty Moonlight is added.

An stamped and die cut image from the Blessings of Home Bundle, coloured using a Blender Pen, is then added with Dimensionals.

A combination of words from sentiments in the Stamp Set are cut out to create the ‘Have a beautiful day’ wording.

Finally, some Classic Matte Dots in White are added to project.

Don’t forget that there is now under a week left to take advantage of the SAB offers.

Blessings of Home Bundle

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted many projects recently.

This is because over the past few weeks I lost my craft mojo. Rather than sitting in my craft room and pressurising myself, I did some other things instead.

Now, I’ve returned to my craft room, I’ve chosen to concentrate on one stamp set, with some coordinating dies to make a few projects. This stops me feeling overwhelmed and helps me to focus.

My chosen products are the Blessings of Home Bundle (Blessings of Home Stamp Set and Flowers of Home Dies), plus a few more coordinating items from the Heart & Home Suite. These are from the Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue.

Using the Cinnamon Cider Heart & Home Doilies as my colour inspiration I teamed it with Very Vanilla to make this this monochrome project.

Stamping the image multiple times down the side of the card creates focus in the background. These are coloured using a Blender Pen to soften the images.

Another flower is stamped and cut out using the dies. Again this is coloured with Blender Pens.

The pieces are then stuck together, with the sentiment attached with Dimensionals.

A multiple loop bow made using the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack is then added. If you’re not sure how to make one of these bows, then take a look at my how to video.

Finally, Classic Matte Dots, also from the Suite are then dotted around for a finishing touch.

I also made a few more projects using these products and I’ll share those with you next week.
