#12 Card Making for Beginners - Series 2 - Quick and Easy Cards with Expressions in Ink

Hi everyone,

Welcome to to the next post in my Card Making for Beginners series. Today I have some super simple cards to show you but just because they are simple, doesn't mean they are not beautiful because I think they are!


How gorgeous is that foiled paper? Just love it! As I say in the video you could get 6 cards like this from that one sheet of paper. 


To make these cards, I started with a sheet of Polished Pink A4 cardstock which I cut in half long ways, at 10.5 cm, then scored at approx 15 cm, making a tent fold card. 


Then just a panel of that pretty Expressions in Ink DSP and a greeting, stamped in coordinating Polished Pink. 




I have a very quick video to show you how I made these cards. To watch, just CLICK HERE or on the image below:

Video Tutorial for watercolored hand penned card


Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. Today I am bringing you the video tutorial for the card I brought you on Saturday for the InspireINK blog hop. 

But before I talk about my project - just a couple of quick reminders.
Firstly I still have a few places available on the Paper Share I advertised last week. 66 sheets of double sided patterned paper for only £25 (UK only). HJust drop me an email at jilldchapman@gmail.com to reserve your spot. I will need all payments by midday on Friday 30th July. 
 

If you'd like more details, you can read the original post by CLICKING HERE. Or click on any of the links at the bottom of this post to see the papers in more detail. 




Secondly, I spent yesterday packaging and labelling copies of the new Mini Catalogue and Saleabration brochures ready to go in the post tomorrow. If you have requested a copy or have shopped with me since January this year, your copy of the catalogue will soon be plopping through your door ready for you to place your order as soon as it goes live on 3rd August! If that is not you and you do not already have a demo, please drop me a message and I'll be very happy to put one in the post to you. From 3rd August a PDF version of the catalogue will be available here on my blog, but it is so much more fun sitting down with the real thing with a cup of your favourite beverage and maybe a biscuit!!

Anyway, back to todays's project. For my card on Saturday I had to use the colours for the colour challenge but no such limitations when I made the alternative version on the video.


I used a piece of stripy patterned paper from the "You're a Peach" pack as my background. As the stripes are in Balmy Blue that was my starting point for my colour scheme.  I then went with Pale Papaya and Soft Sea Foam to make this pretty pastel version of the card. I bet you can guess which one I prefer!!


I love this method of watercolouring using one of our water painters and  the ink from our stamp pads, with a clear block as the palette. 

If you need a reminder of the original card, here it is - much bolder!!


To see how I made my card you can watch my video tutorial by CLICKING HERE or on the image below.



So what do you think? Will you be giving it a go?

Bye for now, have a great day, back soon,
