Do More with Designer Series Paper

Hello Everyone,

Let me ask you… Have you got Designer Series Paper in your stash that you just don’t like? I mean, I know it’s rare but maybe it’s just not your favourite colour.

Have you considered stamping on it? Or even heat embossing it like I have today?

This simple modification has turned what could have been a very plain card in to something more interesting.

See the whole process in my video tutorial….

The Artistry Blooms sequins tone in to the colour of the paper beautifully.

Here are the original samples. The blue version used clear embossing powder, but I felt it didn’t have as much impact as the white.

I’d love to know if you give this a try!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

This week all the ladies have made some masculine cards. These are always a little tricky so hopefully their work will give you some ideas!

Jill has used the power of geometry to create her card. The sentiment cleverly combines two different stamp sets.

Heather has gone for an automotive theme. I love how the heat embossing adds interest to the background.

Gez has gone for a vintage style. The embossing folder adds texture, and the inked edges give it that old world look.

Inspire.Create #046

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a colour challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

If I’m honest I wasn’t sure what I wanted to create to begin with, I don’t have all the ink colours. But I have the card stock! I already had these Stitched Rectangles left over from another project.

For some added interest, though it is not clear on the photos, I stamped the script image from the Very Versaille stamp set with versamark and heat embossed with clear powder.

The coloured rectangle was added towards the right hand side of the card with dimensionals.

I wanted a bold sentiment, I picked this one from Rooted in Nature.

This was stamped with Memento ink and die cut with a Stitched Circle. Each circle was mounted on to a Pearlized Doily.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Very Versaille Thank You

Hello Everyone,

I just love the mixture of images in the Very Versaille stamp set!

This background was really simple to create.

I wanted a more vintage feel, so I used some Very Vanilla card stock to stamp on for a change.

I positioned the text first, stamping this with Crumb Cake ink.

The foliage was stamped next with Mossy Meadow ink. This was done twice so the leaves ran along the left hand edge of the card.

I decided to heat emboss the ornate frame image with gold embossing powder.

I did try to add the sentiment directly to the card but it got lost on the background. To get round this, I stamped it again on to some scrap card and cut it with a 1″ punch.

The card front was layered onto Mossy Meadow card stock and added to a Crumb Cake card base.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.
