Partial die-cut heat embossed border card - Pink Fresh Studio - Leafy Decor

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. So who says leaves have to be green?! I thought this Leafy Decor stamp from PinkFresh Studio would be a great stamp for partial die-cutting to create a border card. And I think it turned out quite well. I decided to go for an alternative colour scheme, as I wanted to play with colour more, rather than stay with traditions. Hopefully, you'll think it's a success - for me, it is a success!

Love Themed Card Using Hero Arts "Candy Hearts Peek-A-Boo" Cling Stamp!

Hello lovelies!This week I'm sharing another love themed card, I like to have a few extra of this style on hand to show my appreciation for people throughout the year.  I die cut a panel from watercolour paper using Mama Elephant's "Basic Rectangles" Creative Cuts and a large scalloped panel from black card stock using Mama Elephant's "Framed Tags" Waverly Creative Cuts. I removed the foam from my Misti stamping tool and secured my watercolour panel to stamp my background using Hero Arts' "Candy Hearts Peek-A-Boo" Cling stamp set and Gina K's Amalgam Jet Black ink. Once the ink was...

Loose Watercoloured Florals - Altenew Flower Garden

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. When I was browsing the Bumbleberry shop, the Flower Garden stamp set from ALtenew stood out and I knew it would be perfect to colour in. If you're like me and don't always want to spend hours colouring in, this stamp set is perfect for loose watercolouring with heat embossing. This technique allows you to add colour but you don't have to be perfect and it will still look amazing.  Written and photos Loose Watercoloured Florals:  To start off, stamp a selection of the florals and leaves...

All My Love - Watercoloured Heart

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. When I saw the All my Love stamp set from Concord & 9th I thought it would be a beautiful stamp to watercolour with heat embossing. This technique is great for small stamps like this where you may struggle to keep within the lines or where you struggle painting small designs. What's more, adding a light wash of the colours over the design, allowing the colours to bleed out the lines adds a lovely soft touch to your edges without stark white borders.
