Using Masks with Emboss Resist to Make Beautiful Backgrounds

Hello Everyone,

Two retiring stamp sets are being used today with some embossing, ink blending, colouring and punching!

A Little Lace is a hidden gem in my opinion and Butterfly Gala has some beautiful element as well as the main butterfly images. Both sets are on sale too!

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Terracotta Tile goes so well with Cinnamon Cider and Bumblebee…

This sample uses Magenta Madness, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

*************************

I have taken the opportunity to showcase some retiring favourites!

The metallic elements I chose are Champagne Foil, and some metallic edged ribbon.

This sample uses Petal Pink and Rich Razzleberry with the Rooted in Nature stamp set and dies.

I love the detail of the Many Medallions dies. The foil looks amazing die cut this way.

I chose Very Vanilla as the base to bring through the warm tone of the foil and the inks.

This combo uses Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Cardmaking with the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper

Hello Everyone,

Something completely different to my usual style today, but it thought I’d give it a go!

There’s no real “formula” that I used for the measurement of each piece of paper, I just went with what I thought looked good!

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

I resisted adding any embellishments as I thought this could be given to a guy too!

Here is the original card. The layers are slightly different, swapping the Calypso Coral and Misty Moonlight.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Rainbow Bloom Wreath

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would make something fun and bright today, so I pulled out the Brights cardstock and started punching!

I definitely prefer this layout to the original.

Look out for the Opal Rounds in the new Mini Catalogue coming on 5th January.

You Mean Everything To Me

Hello Everyone,

I used this stamp set for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I had some other ideas on how to use it, and this is one of them.

See how I made this card in my video tutorial…

Embellishments can be customised with the Stampin’ Blends markers. I did this with the ribbon and the pearls for a fully coordinated look. They would have looked great left in white too!

Blended Postage Stamps

Hello Everyone,

I am experimenting with a different layout using Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch today.

I think I may have gone a little overboard with the dimension on this one, but I do like how the 4 rectangles came together in to a square shape.

The images were coloured with Stampin’ Blends markers, so the line art was stamped with water based Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

See how I made this card in my video tutorial…

I added some mess free glitter with a Wink of Stella glitter brush pen and a few pearls completed the card!

Postage Stamp Punch Window card

Hello Everyone,

I hope you had a lovely weekend!

This idea entered my head from somewhere…. I wanted to create a window look with the Postage Stamp punch!

I then had to work out how to do it….

I decided to use the Ornate Style stamp set for the focal image, which I coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

Which colour way do you prefer?
