Center Cut Flowers

Center Cut Flowers

Hi All!

For today’s card, I used my distress markers and a very simple watercoloring technique that I used on this card, this card, and this card. I love the results of this technique. Here is a close-up:

    Love your card so much. It also is another SSS product that I would love to have. But, I’ll try to improvise first before giving in to my temptation to buy it (smile). Thanks for ending the week in such a beautiful way. I also hope your weekend is relaxing and full of good times!

    WOW!! that is gorgeous, a labor of love to color all of this very detail images, the white embossing always looks amazing.
    This would make a lovely Mother’s Day card too.
    Thank you for sharing Darlene and have a fabulous weekend.
    Hugs.
    Maria.

    I enjoyed watching you create this card so much. The colours worked so well together. I wouldn’t have thought using the weathered wood on the background would look so good it’s one I really use, so I’m pulling it out for. a try this w/end now I’ve seen it. Enjoy your weekend.

    Love the colors you chose for this, Darlene! I agree that the Weathered Wood really adds a nice touch to the background. I’m amazed at how smooth & blended it looks. When I grow up, I want to be able to paint backgrounds like you! Mine still tend to turn out kind of splotchy and uneven. Practice, practice, practice–I know! I’m so glad you have this up today. I’ve been thinking it was Friday since at least Wednesday! I hurt my back pretty badly over the weekend, so I’ve been basically house-bound most of the week. 😿 Thankfully, that is improving–FINALLY!!!! But I needed some un-discombobulating today–don’t ask! Your video is just what the doctor ordered. Thank you for all you do! 😺 ~ Andrea

      Sorry about your back, Andrea. I hope it’s getting better. Glad I could help just a little. 🙂

        Thank you, Darlene! It’s actually quite a bit better today I think. Today was the first time since Sunday that I haven’t needed a cane to walk–big improvement! I’m still being extra-careful with what I do, though, so as not to cause a relapse. Take care, and have a wonderful weekend! 😺 ~ Andrea

    Well, Darlene, I caved in and bought the stamp at SSS after less than 24 hours. How pathetic is that?! Ha! Ha! After looking through my stash and seeing what else was on the market and come up with a big fat zero, I decided to go ahead and buy it. I have all the other supplies, love the technique, and have been looking for some time for a stamp that would do just this for a sentiment to go inside. Also, what capped it off for me was that it is red rubber and I can also do the Distress Stain technique that Heather Telford has demonstrated on many of her videos.

      Connie, what’s your experience with SSS regarding how long it takes for products to get to you? My last order was placed 17th Feb. and it didn’t arrive until mid April. And the bag arrived open. I wonder if that was Customs?

        Believe it or not, I haven’t purchased from SSS since 2016 until just now. But back then the occasional orders I made at SSS over several years came at different speeds. Some were here in 2 weeks and some came in 6 weeks. I reckon, Anita, that it depends on how busy they are at the time. As they’re growing in popularity, they are probably getting busier. So you can’t be in a hurry to receive your order. However, it’s actually working out to be cheaper now to buy at SSS overseas than it is to buy locally at Stampin Up because of SU’s prices reaching an all time high in Australia.

        Forgot to add, Anita, that the delay for you could have been customs because they randomly check overseas parcels and yours may have been one that got checked. I order lots from overseas and I can only remember a few times my parcel got checked by customs. But when customs check it, they’re supposed to stamp that it has been checked. I reckon baggage handlers flung your parcel in transit. This happens more often than customs checks!

          Thanks for your reply Connie, yes, I think it must be Customs who is responsible for the delay and for the parcel arriving completely open. Amazingly things were still inside! I don’t know how, but they were. I would like to know where you shop mostly. Craftie Caffe is expensive I guess but fast! BTW Congrats on your win and… Enjoy your $25. voucher!

            Hi Anita! Thanks for your congratulations. I was so surprised. Couldn’t believe I was going to be able to shop AGAIN at SSS! In answer to your question for your information and any others who live in Australia, I mostly shop at these places in no particular order: Amazon.com (not the Australian store but the US one which is much faster and cheaper), Stampin Up, mystampinsale.com.au (Retired Stampin Up products in Australia), Auzz Trinklets n Crafts, The Scrapbook Store, Scrapdragon, Craftie Cafe, Ebay, Craft Online, Art by Jenny, and Time to Create. I occasionally also shop overseas at these stores: Blitsy, Scrapbook.com, MayMay Made It, Ellen Hutson, Paper Smooches (direct), Buddly Crafts (UK), Dies to Die For (UK), and SSS. But I do one-off purchases sometimes at other online stores. I seldom shop in an actual store these days because I live on the NSW South Coast which doesn’t have any good card-making stores. Hope this helps!

            Postscript: Bizzy Becs in Australia is great for pre-ordering hard to find items.

      Thanks for that list of suppliers Connie. I have never been able to order from Amazon.USA as it always says that they don’t ship to Australia. I’m beginning to wonder if they only send to the big cities but not the regional towns like Springsure (Central Qld)…

      • wrote on May 1st, 2018 at 11:08 pm

        Connie

        There are a lot of things that don’t get sent to Australia but that is not Amazon’s decision but the various companies that operate under the Amazon banner. You probably have just been unlucky and found things that only shipped in the USA. But many things also ship overseas. I live in a tiny village on the NSW South Coast. Since Amazon ships here, I’m sure they’d ship to you too. One warning though – don’t buy anything that is glass from Amazon because it will probably not arrive in one piece! I tried to buy Paddywax candles from them and they broke every time! But stamps, dies and art supplies are no problem whatsoever and they are often cheaper than buying them locally even with the shipping charges.

          Ok, thank you Connie. I find it hard to believe that I never have been able to buy from them. I wonder if I’m doing something wrong? I’ll try again and will let you know if I have any luck.
