Painted Poppies - Gift Box and Card - Video Tutorial


Today's Video shows you how I created this Gift Box.

I used the Painted Poppies stamp set and coordinating Painted Labels dies as well as the beautiful Peaceful Poppies stamp set.


The Gift Box measures 7½" tall x 2¾" wide x 1½" deep. 

I used Versafine Onyx Black ink for the outlines on the flowers and leaves and heat embossed them using Clear powder.


It opens at the top. The base was constructed from Mossy Meadow cardstock. The red layer is Poppy Parade.


This is the card I created to go with it. I don't show you how to make this in the Video, but I do give you the measurements for it below. The design is very simple. I did add additional layers to the Flower head and the bud.


The Rhinestones were coloured using the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends alcohol marker.

Here is the Video ...

Breathtaking Bouquet - Drop Watercolour Technique - Video Tutorial


I really enjoyed creating today's cards. I'm no watercolour expert but this technique is so easy and it gives beautiful results.

I used the Drop Watercolour technique to create these cards. You first get the card wet with clean water and then you pick up your colour and just touch it to the wet areas. The colour blooms out on the wet surface and colours your images. The Video below shows you how I did this.


This was my very first attempt and I love this card, it's my favourite of the two here. I still find creating videos a little stressful sometimes and trying to recreate anything technical doesn't always go to plan :o) I think my second card came out fine, but this one went just a little better without having to worry about all things camera while creating it :o)


I used the same colours of ink for both cards, just changing the card base for each of them.

The colours used are Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam ... with just a little Crumb Cake.


I stamped the large background stamp using my Stamparatus with Versamark ink. The image was then heat embossed with White powder.


The sentiment is from the Label Me Bold stamp set. I stamped this with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with Clear powder.

The Watercolour card I used is not from Stampin' Up! I own lots of different ones and buy them in bulk. I have linked SU's below if you are interested in it.

Here is the Video ...
