Tando April Colours

This week on the ~{Tando Blog}~ is another colour week. I made this card:

 

I've used the ~{Mini Criss Cross Stencil}~ with ~{DecoArt White Modelling Paste}~ directly onto the card blank.

I've inked a tag and splattered water on it, then painted up one of the ~{Mini Owls 2}~ using DecoArt Acrylic Paints.

Finally, I've added lots of doodles, some ribbon, feathers, die cut shapes and a stamped greeting.

Tando Recipe Week

This week on the ~{Tando Blog}~, we have a recipe theme of 

1 stencil
2 stamps
3 flowers

Of course I made a quick and simple card:


I painted 3 of the ~{Mini Flowers}~ with Decoart Acrylic Paint and while they dried, used the          ~{Mini Clock Stencil}~ onto the card blank.

Next I've used a Stampotique text stamp with white embossing powder onto the mini flowers and then glued them onto some white flowers and stuck them to the card blank.

The second stamp is a Stampotique birthday stamp.

Tando - March Colour theme

This is the lovely colour palette we're using on the ~{Tando Blog}~ this month:



I've interpreted the beigey colour to be gold as there's a Golden Wedding Anniversary in my family this week!


I've used 2 hearts from the ~{Hearts Grab Bag}~ and painted them with acrylic paints, blending the colours and then adding painty dots and doodles.

The central heart is from the ~{Jewellery Hearts }~ and I've painted it with gold acrylic paint and added doodles and ribbon. I've heat embossed the 50 on some coloured card fixed behind it.

The card is finished with some ink splatters, a stamp and doodles.

Tando - Anything Goes

This week on the ~{Tando Blog}~ it's *anything goes* so I've made a card:


I've given 3 of the ~{Mini Fish}~ a coat of white paint, then added DecoArt ~{Quinacridone Gold}~. I then took a fine paintbrush and added shading using the gold. Once dry, I've added highlights with a white paint pen.

They've been stuck onto a stamped background (stamp by Stampotique, of course) and I've added a computer generated greeting.

Tando-Creative - Make a Card


This week on the ~{Tando Blog}~ it's make a card week. I made this one for my mum's birthday:


Firstly, I used DecoArt's ~{White Modelling Paste}~ through the circles part of the ~{Tree and Leaves 3 Part Mask}~ onto card.

I painted one of the ~{Small Book Plates}~, a heart from the ~{Mini Hearts Pack}~, a flower from the ~{Mini Flowers Pack}~ and a butterfly from the ~{Mini Butterfly Pack}~ using a variety of ~{DecoArt Fluid Acrylics}~ mixed with DecoArt's white chalk paint.

I've then used DecoArt's ~{Clear Liquid Glass}~ to glaze and stick everything. I then assembled the card and did a bit of doodling.

Keep checking the ~{Tando Blog}~ this week for more cards from the design team.

It's Christmaaas!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to anyone who is still subscribed to my blog.

While I've been away, I've decided that I'm not able to commit to making 1 or 2 things a week for design teams any more. I just don't have the energy and I realised how much I'd been pushing myself to get things made. So. sadly, I've given up the Stampotique Design Team. I have been on it for 5 years and I've had a blast. I made friends and got to play with so many stamps thanks to the generosity of Carol and Jim, so thank you to you both.

I will still be making the occasional project for Tando though, about one a month I think. Di is a really good friend of mine and she forbade from leaving!! She was scary ;) 

I made very few things over the last 6 months, only birthday cards for people. It's frightening to admit that I had/have no desire to do so either. Maybe it'll come back next year, who knows. So, I leave you with one of my favourite creations from last Christmas and I will be back in January.

Tando - Flower Power

This week on the ~{Tando Blog}~ we have been all about the flowers. I made this card:


I used DecoArt's ~{White Modelling Paste}~ through the ~{Poppy Mask}~ and, when this was dry, through one of the stripes on the ~{Stripes Mask}~ for the stem.

When these were dry, I used Gelatos as watercolours to add colour and shading to the flower.

I finished off with a greeting stamp.

This will be my last Tando creation for at least this year. I have something good and 2 nasty things coming up in the next 6 months and so I need to concentrate all my limited energy onto getting through these. After being on the team since Di started the business it isn't easy, but it ha to be done. Thanks for all the lovely comments and support I have received from you over this time.
I aim to be back.
