Guest Designer Gwendolyn Goh

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to introduce our July Guest Designer, Gwendolyn Goh and if you know her, you know she’s crazy talented. Thank you so much, Gwendolyn, for sharing this beautiful project with us today…take it away!

Hi everyone! I’m Gwendolyn aka desperatehousewifecraft and I am so honoured to be a guest designer here today!
 I entered the crafting world 4 years ago, when I started a scrapbook a month before I left France, for my best friend there, to leave her a memory of our 20 year friendship. I remember going to a scrapbook class as I didn’t know what it meant and what I had to do! Lol! She got the scrapbook.. 2 years later… and that was the last I touched a scrapbook! I tried crochet, soy candle making, and then 1 year ago, I don’t really know why, I started card making. And I have been obsessed with it ever since! I love learning new techniques and being challenged by challenges. My style is mainly clean and simple and playing with watercolours, which I learnt to use a few months ago.
thinking of you a2z guest design
Today I made a special watercolour card to share with you so I hope you like it! I used Hero Arts Color layering flamingo and  Color layering poppy to make the “water lilies” which I stamped with Altenew’s Shades of purple mini cube set. For the background, I used my Zigs Clean Color real water brush pens and a water brush to create it. I love how they leave an almost fluorescent look! The sentiment comes from the layering flamingo set and was stamped in Versafine ink.
Well I hope you enjoyed my card and if you want to know more about how I made it, please pop over to my blog!

Color Layering Flamingo

Hi everyone, it’s Angie here with a card made with the Hero Arts Layering Flamingo stamp and frame cut sets!   I hope you will enter this month’s “Anything Goes” challenge at the a2zscrapbooking blog.  You can win a $25 gift certificate to the store – just remember to use one main Hero Arts product!

I stamped the flamingo with my Mini Misti and die cut it, plus another white one and one out of fun foam.  Then I cut one out of the red panel and stacked all the dies together to give the flamingo dimension.  I added the other stamps and sentiment (from the same set) and then mounted it on a piece of black card stock, then onto a white card.  The edges of the card have dotted washi tape on them.  Lastly I added some water droplets from my stash and a little Wink of Stella on the darkest parts of the flamingo.

Remember if you need supplies, even ones you don’t see in the a2z store, you can special order them (Request Custom Order) and don’t forget to use code Angie 15!  This way you can get 15% off your order totaling $25 or more!

I’ll Stand by You

Hi stampers!

Ilina’s here today with a  clean and simple card for you to play along this month’s challenge, which is (obviously) Clean and Simple.

I used the new Hero Arts set Color Layering Flamingo (which is not in the A2z scrapbooking store- link at the bottom of this post) and it has a coordinating die, too which I am not using for my card.

I have a little video (about 6 min) showing you how I made today’s card. I used the MISTI tool for positioning of the layers of the flamingo.

Don’t forget to use the code “Ilina15” to get 15% off your purchase of $25  or more in the A2zscrapbooking store on Etsy.

Hope I inspired you to create something today, as well join this month’s challenge.
