Find the Beauty Card Trio by Deepti Stephens

Hello there everyone!

This is Deepti Stephens and I am so happy that I am guest designing for one of my favourite stamp companies, Right at Home. Today, I have three cards to share with you all.

So let's get started! :)

Find the Beauty Card Trio by Deepti Stephens // rightathomeshop.com/blog

For my first card, I stamped floral images from the Find the Beauty stamp set and layered the colors with the variety of Catherine Pooler inks - It's a Girl, Party Dress, Rockin' Red, Mint to be, Lime Rickey and Midnight.

I took a navy blue cardstock and white embossed the sentiment. I adhered all the floral images in the form of the wreath, a kind of semi-wreath.

And finally embellished the card with a few clear sequins.

Here's my video tutorial for this card...

Here comes the second card!

On a light grey card stock, I stamped the Grid Background Stamp set in Midnight ink.

I stamped the leaves on a green card stock from Find the Beauty with the Grass Skirt ink, fussy cut it and adhered over the second smaller panel.

Finally. stamped the sentiment with Midnight Ink and embellished with pink sequins. Those pink sequins look like pretty flowers, right!

And for my third card...

I applied strokes of blue water color on a white card base. Later, I added splatters of black ink.

I stamped the sentiment and other images on a white card stock with Midnight ink, fussy cut it and popped over the main card base.

I colored the envelopes with Sizzix Permanent Red Marker. The stamp set I used is from Happy Mail Year 2.

Coloring with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers // The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hi there! 

I hope you're having a great Saturday so far. Today I'm joining in on the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge with Kathy Racoosin! If you're unfamiliar with this awesome challenge, here's the quick rundown: 

The premise of “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” is to color something everyday even if it’s for five minutes. However, feel free to jump in or out as time permits. Any coloring medium is welcomed.

You should have arrived here from Reverse Confetti, but if not, no worries! The hop list is included at the end of this post.

I'll be honest with you...I'm not much of a colorer...and when you see my creation for today you'll know why. LOL. I've always shied away from these challenges but decided to push myself. Although I was feeling a little down about the images I colored, it just shows that I need more practice which is why this challenge is perfect!

Anyways, here's my bright & colorful craft supplies colored with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers:

The images I used are from my Make Something Beautiful stamp set. I thought it would be perfect for today's occasion. I also recently added the coordinating die set to my shop so it was a win-win! I used a variety of different colors for these images and a waterbrush pen to help blend them. The key to using these markers is Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. On this paper they blend beautifully! I also added a few details using a white gel pen...it really finishes them off.

Freshly Picked Seasonal Wreath Card // Right at Home Stamps + Catherine Pooler Ink Blog Hop

Edit: The winner of the giveaway is Denise Bryant! Thanks for hopping along and commenting if you did so!

Hello, hello, HELLO!

I'm super excited to be posting today as I am hosting a collaboration blog hop with the Catherine Pooler Creative Team! Today, myself along with a ton of CP designers are sharing projects featuring Right at Home stamps and Catherine Pooler Designs Premium Dye Inks which are now available in the Right at Home shop!

I can not wait to see what everyone created, but before I hop along myself let me show you what I created!

Let's get started...

Freshly Picked Seasonal Wreath Card // Right at Home Stamps + Catherine Pooler Ink Blog Hop - rightathomeshop.com/blog

I started off by stamping the smallest butterfly from my Fluttering By stamp set in different shades of blue from Catherine's ink collection. I used Black Jack for the body, Mint to Be for the base of the wings, and Aquatini over top to add some life to the butterfly. I also added a detail layer to the body of the butterfly with a crisp black ink like Midnight.

Next came a ton of floral and leaf stamping with images from my Freshly Picked stamp set. For all the leaves, stems, etc. I used Green Tea (my favoritest green shade ever) and Eucalyptus for those images that had a second layer. The single floral image used Sauna, the berries used both It's a Girl and Polished, the largest flower used Polished and Sauna, and the teeny tiny purple flower used Sweet Sixteen, Pixie Dust, and Flirty Fuchsia.

For the banner I decided to bring in some more shades of yellow so I grabbed Shea Butter for the base and tail ends (double stamped) and Sauna, again, for the shadow. Over top I stamped a greeting from my Thanks a Bunch set and curved it to match the curve of the banner. 

I wanted to create a base for all my stamped images so I pulled out the wreath die from my Seasonal Wreath Die Set and die-cut from some cardstock that I had inked with Green Tea ink. I did a direct ink pad to paper technique to really transfer the color. I also die-cut two additional wreaths from white cardstock to layer underneath so it would pop off the card.

I assembled all of my elements onto a piece of textured white cardstock that I die-cut with a stitched rectangle die from my Find the Beauty Die Set. I used both liquid glue and foam tape to adhere everything. Once I had finally achieved an arrangement I liked, I glued the panel onto a yellow cardbase and my card was finished!

Watch me build this sweet spring wreath card in my process video below...
