You’re The Best – New Release – Polka Dot Orchard

Hello and welcome. I’m so happy as Scotland is opening its shops today as lockdown is easing further. I’m glad as I can now meet friends and family now, even go out for a coffee. Very excited.

I’ve got a quick card to show you so let’s jump right in.

I printed the digital floral stamp and chose the sentiment I think of you often for my card and printed them both of onto same card. I used Papermill Direct Smooth White 300gsm cardstock.

Coloured in the floral image with Arteza Brush Pens in

  • Elephant Gray
  • Apricot
  • Honey
  • Cantaloupe
  • Lemon Yellow
  • Forest Green
  • Pine Green
  • Shamrock Green
  • Pale Green
First layer of colour going on.

I done 2 layers of colour to really make the flowers and colours stand out. Then I created a border of 4.5cm and masked off that line with masking tape so I could create a black background using Noir from Arteza Brush Pens.

Next I made another line of 6mm and covered in glue from a Glue Pen then poured Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter in Glitter Rose Gold over it, tapped off the excess and let it dry. Adhered to card base and my card is completed.

The black background really makes the card ‘POP’

I hope you like my card and it inspires you to get creative and inky.

Stay safe 🌈 and keep well 🌼 🌸

You can click here to take you direct Dolly Doily

Hi friends and Happy Tuesday! I am so happy I have a couple of cards I’m sharing with the new stencil.

This card is so simple to make, I chose Memento Dye Inks in Morocco and Potter’s Clay. Blended with my blending brushes, layered onto gold card and Kraft card base. Added sentiment and sequins to embellish.

For this card I chose Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire, Evergreen Bough, Ripe Persimmon and Seedless Preserves.

Thanks My Friend

I took the sentiments from the set Thanks My Friend for both cards.

For my last card I have used the Dolly Doily Stencil in a different way. I have used part of the Stencil to add pattern to my card.

Like A Sister

Flowers are my favourite to colour and I absolutely love this set. I used my Promarkers to colour – French Navy, Cyan, Arctic Blue, Sky Blue, Powder Blue, Aubergine, Violet, Lilac, Lush Green, Forest Green and Meadow Green.

For the stencil I used Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass. Layered onto burgundy card and added some sequins to finish.

I hope you all like my cards, I would love to know your comments and Polka Dot Orchard SALE is still on (at time of this publishing).

Happy crafting and keep safe my friends!

Kirsty 🌸
