Hello Hello Hello Cards!

Hi there

Natalie here today sharing a couple of cards I taught last 
weekend using the NEW chipboard designs!

These cards were fun, easy and super effective - I used Lindys Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mists - and I love the way they sit on the chipboard - just perfect!

Short Sharp & Shiny from me today ...
Have a great weekend!

March Color Wheel Love

Oh My Goodness ... Have you seen how gorgeous the March Colour Challenge is ... so pretty and bright ... perfect for this idea I had to get out of my head!

I love the colour wheel - in fact if you ask anyone who has been to any of my classes ... I waffle on about it ALL THE TIME ... so I wanted to embrace that in this layout!

These colours worked pretty well together and I couldn't wait to have a play - but first I needed a circle!
Out of the 7.5 million stamps I own I dont have a Colour Wheel or a Pie Chart so I had to draw one!
Hmmm .... stop ... panic slightly .... rethink .... ok ... Trace the rolls of tape in front of me - PERFECT!
Next I dragged out ALL of the black pens I own - which is just under 7.5 million - and tested which ones didn't run with water - which I established was quite a few but I went with the Pentel PermaBall. I then drew over the pencilled circles and used a ruler to draw the lines in... Done!

Now the colour ... I'm using Marshmallow Cardstock which holds liquid really well ... and gave the area a little water mist first then carefully added the first colour - because the paper is wet, the colour moves around and allows you to add in the second colour. Too easy!

I've whipped up a little Video tutorial if you want to have a look --- Head Over to my You Tube

So have a go this month - the colours are divine!

Teal = My Fave Color

This month over at Imaginarium Designs, the team is playing with Teal!

Here is my project...

Teal is a very important colour to me - It's the Colour for Ovarian Cancer. I am a survivor of Ovarian Cancer. I am nearly in remission and thankful everyday that I beat the odds and came out the other side. This page is simple but powerful for me - I am Happy! 
I used Lindys Stamp Gang sprays in Tibetan Poppy Teal, Tainted Love Teal and T-Bird Turquoise to colour the backgound and the gave the chipboard a generous spray using Tibetan Poppy Teal and Tainted Love Teal. The chipboard words are coloured with a black posca to get a nice rich coverage. The chipboard I have chosen is also part of the journey - it was all designed by me! 

Head over to ID and check out the rest of the projects and enter to win some great chipboard

A little detective work with CSI ...

Hey there

This month Lindys Stamp Gang have partnered with CSI: Colour, Stories, Inspiration and I have created a super easy layout.

When I first looked at this, I admit I was a little overwhelmed but once I broke down the elements, it was so much fun!

The Scene... I used the full colour palette ... painting the Cameo cuts with the following Lindys Stamp Gang products … Shaker – Bratwurst Brown & Oom Pah Pah Pink, Magicals – Hottie Patotti Hot Pink & Gag Me With A Spoon Gray and Aloha Avocado Spray.

Evidence ...a White background, Floral Pattern, Leaves and Flowers, Hand Drawn looking elements 

Testimony ... word Love and journaling about the Love I have for my Grandmother,

Pop over and have a go ... its super fun and really easy!

Much Love

Lindys February Challenge ...

Hey there

It's time for another challenge over at Lindys Stamp Gang!

This month is is celebrating all things PINK with this gorgeous colour palette.

I decided to go for a simple but effective Scrapbook Layout using photos taken at Jessica's birthday last year.

I really enjoy going back to basics with Scrapbooking - sometimes simplicity is best ... let the photos do the talking!

I used my Cameo machine to cut out a phrase - this is just using the text tool with the letters welded together in a font I chose.
Once cut, I used the five colours from the Special Edition Pack to colour the words - using a paint brush, this was super easy to apply.


I love the 'Ombre' effect ... and it makes the photos pop out too!

So have a go this month ... and upload your entry to the FB Group here!
