What is a blog hop?

Until his week I wasn’t sure but now we can learn together! A blog hop is a way to visit other blogs that are related to the content on this one! Every Wednesday I will be participating in the Freshly Brewed Blog Hop and this weeks theme was the new Stampin Up Watercolour Pencils!  To help show you how cool they are I used them on an item you can earn for free during Salebration that I have accented using a stamp available in the new occasions catalogue.

The pencils are a new item in the Occassions Catalogue which you can purchase from right now! To creat my card I used the Inside the Lines Designer Series paper. This is one of the many items you can earn for free from now until the 31st March 2017. You can pick one item for every $90 you spend.

This pack includes 12 sheets of 12×12 paper that is ready for you to colour yourself. The pack contains three sheets each of four designs.

Before we start let me quickly explain how you use the pencils. There is no need to colour in exactly, just stay inside the lines. I try to press heavier in some places to get a depth of shade. You then use an aqua pen to blend the colours.

Here is a photo of the process underway.

To finish off my card I mounted my picture on some Daffodil Delight after I inked the edges in Rose Red ink. I added some glitter to my little bee and stamped a sentiment from the new Beautiful You stamp set.

I cut my sheet of 12×12 into six sections. These means I could make 72 cards from this free pack of paper!

Don’t forget I have my open house and catalogue launch on Sunday 15th Janaury. Pop in anytime from 1 until 4:30 pm. I will have displays, special gifts, items for sale and special offers. If you need my address please send an email to sandie_away@yahoo.com . Alternatively you can contact me through my Facebook page.

Please have a chat with me if you love being creative and would like to make some extra money to spend on craft supplies, supplement your family income or just because you like making extra money!

Now the whole point of a hop is for you to hop! There are only two of us in this weeks hop so please visit Libby a time: http://libbystampz.com/2017/01/freshly-brewqed-blog-hop-using-watercolor-pencils/

Until next time happy crafting!
