Wizz-bang Wednesday! Speedy card making

Hello, to my first Wizz-bang Wednesday, where I will be making speedy cards for when you need a card quickly but your still want it to be stylish.

I'm using Delightfully Detailed note cards and envelopes, these are great as they already have a watercolour effect printed on the front of the cards.

I stamped the cute boats, coloured them and then die cut.  They are simply glued on.
Finish with a sentiment of your choice!

Ink & Share June Blog Hop

Welcome to this months Ink & Share blog hop.  We are a group of Stampin Up Demonstrators who get together once a month to inspire you to create beautiful cards.  This months theme is summer and what it means to you!

Don't forget to hop along!

I live on a small island and every year there is a regatta with boats  stalls,  music, fair and fireworks, I have been going since I was a small child and it always feels like summer.

I'm using Lilypad Lake and the Under the Sea dies.

Four layers in one go!
I masked a rectangle on my whisper white layer with Scotch Painters tape and used a wavy die from Seasonal Layers Thinlit's to make a mask.  Starting from the top of the paper I sponged my ink (in small circle movements) over the mask, moving the mask down until the paper was filled.

I love the happy bunting on my card, I fussy cut these out then glued them to my card, when dry I stitched over with my sewing machine.  No sewing machine? You could leave as they are or make stitch marks with a pen.

On this bunting I used my sewing machine without the cotton for a different effect.

Sorry no tutorial video this month, I have been sorting and moving furniture in my craft area and have been unable to film! It's up and running as of today so watch out!

Colour Challenge Birthday Card

This week I entered a colour challenge set by our Team Leader.

The colours are

Was a bit of a problem as I do not have all these colours yet!
I used Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue and Petal Pink.

I used the Balmy Blue ink refill to make the waves, if you want to make more than one card here's a quick tip below, stick all your paper down then mask and ink in one go!

I pulled my sewing machine out and stitched the bunting after I glued them on.  Wait for it to dry first!!
