Pencil colouring on dark cardstock - PinkFresh Studios Full Bloom

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. I'm really loving using coloured cardstock panels, particularily the darker the better. But I also love to colour as well, so today I'm sharing my tips on pencil colouring on dark card. And as soon as I saw this beautiful floral stamp from PinkFresh Studios, I thought it would be perfect for just this technique! The floral arrangement allows the card to pop through against those softer colours really making the design stand out.  Written and photos Pencil colouring on dark cardstock:  To start off, trim a...

Two Cards Using Hero Arts' "Fresh Citrus" Bold Prints Stamp!

Hello lovelies!This week I'm sharing two cards I made using the Hero Arts "Fresh Citrus" Bold Prints background stamp! I love these stamps, they make it easy to produce multiple cards! I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant's "Basic Rectangles" Creative Cuts.

Making your stamping pop - Gina K Cardstock / Altenew Bold Bunch

  Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. When I saw this Bold Bunch stamp set I thought I need to pair it with a bold design. To do this, I wanted the stamping to really pop off the card so one way to make your stamping pop is to use bright colours against dark coloured cardstock. Gina K Designs has a whole range of fabulous colours and I used two of my favourite dark colours of hers for these two cards.  Written and photos Making your stamping pop:  Start off by placing the...
