SIP 114

I've been enjoying playing around with some of my new stuff from the Holiday Catalogue, including the Hearts Come Home bundle. I'd been thinking about how it could be used to update (and hopefully to improve) on a card I made a couple of years ago and the sketch at Stamp, Ink, Paper turned out to be the perfect chance to try it.

It feels a little bit cheaty, since I'm using the same set and same layout as LeAnne's design team card but I think that it shows the great versatility of the bundle that they do look so different with different choices.

All items in the Holiday catalogue are now available. If you live in New Zealand and don't have a demonstrator and would like a catalogue, please contact me. You can message me on my Facebook page, linked in the sidebar of this blog, or leave a comment below.

  1. Oh my gosh, cheat away! This is amazing! What a fun little technique to create that wonderful sky!! I love it! I am going to have to give this a try myself!

  2. Amazing, Jan! Great coloring. Thanks for joining the challenge this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper.

  3. Beautiful card. How did you do the sky? Is there somewhere I can look up how to accomplish this tehnique?

    1. Hi. In the body of this post, I refer to a card I made a couple of years ago. If you click on the words 'couple of years ago' the link will take you to the post about the original card, which contains a photo tutorial on how I did it. I hope that help you.
