Watercolour background with reinkers!

 Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. One way to create a background quickly is to make a watercolour background. If you don't have watercolours, then you can fake it by using your reinkers. Watercolour background with reinkers is perfect for heat embossing on, and as I still love the Catherine Pooler Boho Fall release, I created another autumn thank you card. Written and photos TITLE:  Start off by wetting a piece of watercolour cardstock with clean water. Add a few drops of re-inker to an acrylic block - these work great as makeshift palettes....

Use alternative colour combo for your leaves! Catherine Pooler Designs

  Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. When you look at a themed stamp set, you can often go along with creating using a colour theme that makes sense with the theme. And whilst those cards will always turn out great, it is just as fun to create with alternative colours for a change. Today I'm stamping with the Painted Leaves stamp set along with alternative colours than you'd expect to see with leaves for this bright and happy slimline cad.  Written and photos 'Alternative colour combo':  Start of by placing a piece of...

Cohesive colours with Catherine Pooler Inks!

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. What I love about Catherine Pooler inks is that they work so well with one another. Catherine Pooler Designs has split her inks into two main collections: Party and Spa. The inks in the Party collection are bright colours that are saturated. The Spa inks are muted toned inks with a grey undertone to them. You can mix and match any colour you want - that is part of art, but for cohesiveness, Catherine Pooler has taken the guessing out for you. Today, my card features a...

Create you own custom coloured embossing paste!

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. If you love to use embossing paste with your stencils, then you'll also love to create your own custom coloured paste to use. It is so simple to create custom coloured embossing paste and even if you don't have a lot of colours you can still create with this technique. I used some re-inkers to colour my paste - just as it was the easiest way, but you can easily use your ink pads, watercolours, sprays etc.  I've combined the paste with the beautiful In The Jungle stencil...
