Bontanical Framed Wonderful Romance

Yes, it's been a number of days since you saw a creation from me.... my new schedule got the better of me and I needed to take some time out to recoup, then when I did walk in my craft room it was a disaster, so then the reorganisation phase kicked in, and at the end of that my mojo appeared and fitted perfectly with this weeks CASE the designer challenge at the Global Design project.

 #GDP180

Two things caught my eye from Stesha's card, the lovely textured background and the frame effect, he's my creation:


Try as I did, I couldn't bring myself to put the frame on an angle... maybe it was from all the organising I had done my crafting space as everything is currently in order, sorted and aligned, hahaha, lets see how long that lasts!

My colours were determined by the background Botanical Butterfly Sale-a-Bration DSP, Lemon Lime Twist for the win, and so as not to think too hard I just added another 2017 - 2019 InColor.... Powder Pink.


The stamped feature and sentiment are from  the Wonderful Romance stamp set, adding colour using an Aqua painter, then I made the most of the Wonder Floral Framelits - no fussy cutting here! I added the Subtle texture to the Whisper White background, I just love this embossing folder.

The frame was super easy to create by using to of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits, then a touch of bling with a Gold Metallic Thread bow, all mounted on a Gold Foiled Edged card and I was done, happy days in the craft room are back!

Waste not, want not Layering

Welcome to the March 2019 All Star Tutorial Team blog hop, I hope your are ready for some crafty inspiration from all around the world.

I cut into another piece of the beautiful Botanical Butterfly DSP for my card today, I was thinking of my grandmothers when creating this card, both for the colour and the floral design.


It's no secret that I struggle to cut into my DSP,... so you wouldn't be surprised when I say I also tend to "hold onto" card stock scraps too! I was raised with a "waste not, want not" pholosphy, my mum always had left over material when she did dressmaking, and taught me to lay patterns to get the most out of the piece of material. 

When I create cards, I naturally apply the same rules - and when you are layering/matting your project it is the perfect opportunity to make the most of a piece of card stock, and you can't even tell!



Watch the quick clip below to see how I made the most of my layers.




I hope you've enjoyed my creation, be sure to work your way through the list below to see all the amazing creations  from the All Stars team, don't miss out on any of these blog posts today as I know you are going to get inspiration! You are currently visiting Sue Vine at MissPinksCraftSpot

Well Said #WWYS209 featuring torn paper masking

Welcome back to a fresh challenge at What Will You Stamp? This weeks showcase features the Well Said stamp set - with 51 mix and match sentiments, ranging from single words to phases, you are bound to have the right sentiment for every occasion.


If that's not enough sentiments for you, then you can also pair with the Well Written framelits, that's another 24 dies - I was super excited when I saw these in the Occasions Catalogue.

 Well Said Bundle

For my creation, I've used a combination of stamping and die cuts, and for something out of the square for me I didn't layer or mat my card base, instead I created the "mat" by stamping the Blushing Bride background (ever so lightly) with the Crackle Paint Stamp.



By using VersaMark for the background stamping made it quite delicate, and so that I didn't have straight egdes, I tore paper and created a mask around the edge of the card before stamping.



The wood elements and Metallic Pearls finished the design perfectly. Here's a quick clip of creating this card.


You may have noticed that I didn't attach the background stamp to the block - that's just my personal preference, I have tiny hands and find the block a little hard to use.


Pop over and view the all projects created with this set by the Design Team, we would love you to participate in our weekly challenges at What Will You Stamp? why not play along with this week - We'd love to see what you create!

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.
