Rustic Touches of Texture

Today I am sharing a project with you using the Touches of Texture stamp set.  You may have seen my post from earlier this week, well this card is quite different:


  
I've used the background stamps on Mint Macaron cardstock to give a rustic style to my card, I just adore the "negative" image of this particular stamp, and also sponged the edges of my card stock for that "old world" feel. I am just loving the effects that can be created with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies too! I used the below colour combination:



My sentiment has been created using the Thoughtful Banners bundle, there are so many sentiments to choose from in this set, and a choice of 4 different Banners - how cool is that!

Fancy Folds Stampers Showcase - Hues of Happiness Circle Easel Card

Hello there crafters! You are going to love today's Stamper Showcase Blog Hop - we are all featuring FUN FOLDS, I just love a fun fold, I should really do more of them! I decided to a Circle Easel Card, it's a smaller card, but I think you will agree is just super cute, and with the Hues of Happiness DSP is just Gorgeous! This card is a relatively simple for a fun fold and comes together very quickly - I think I spent more time doing the floral arrangement than the actual fun fold itself. I took advantage of being able to die cut images directly from the Hues of Happiness DSP - I love it when we can do this with DSP, and aren't the flowers just stunning! I took 3 different flowers and some foliage and arranged to fit within the Basic White Circle cut from the largest circle die in Layering Circles Dies set, and the largest scallop die is used for the coloured section of the card. To create the card base you need to fold a piece of card stock and positon the largest die slig

Color Fusers Blog Hop | March 2022

Hello crafters, welcome to this month's Color Fusers Monthly Blog Hop! This month, our colors include Evening Evergreen , Soft Succulent and Rich Razzleberry .  I can't remember the last time I got inky with Rich Razzleberry, and Evening Evergreen could use a bit more love too so this Colour Challenge is quite timely for me. I decided to make a floral arrangement with the Flowing Flowers stamp set ,  using Evening Evergreen for the leaves and sentiment, with Soft Succulent on the dots - I added some finer dots of Soft Succulent by flicking the edge of my Stampin Write marker. I used Gilded Leafing to add touches of gold throughout the card front and a bow the Open Weave Ribbon , lastly adding  Genial Gems to compliment the other embellishments. Be sure to continue on through the rest of the Color Fusers Blog Hop by clicking the button below for lots more inspiration using this month’s colors.

Hello crafters, a new month, means a new All Star Tutorial. This month we are showcasing the Artfully Composed suite from the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalogue. The All Star Tutorial Design Team not only design a Tutorial Project that’s exclusive but we also each design an additional project to share here for further inspiration. I've pretty much used a green theme for my Artfully Composed cards so far, so today I have something different for you.... you guessed, a touch of pink! Blushing Bride with Crumb Cake is a beautiful combination, and I've added a little Soft Suede too. I randomly stamped the card base ad background with 2 stamps from Artfully Layered, then added the border die. I cut the outline dies and created the arrangement under the top edge of the sentiment layer, and to finish added a Lined Tread bow and some Elegant Faceted Gems for a touch of bling. Artfully Composed Inspiration Below is a sneak peek of what’s in store with this month’s Tutorial Bundle. You’ll

Sweet Talk with All Star Tutorial Team

Hello crafters, the new year is here and so is the All Star Tutorial Team. This month we are showcasing the Sweet Talk suite from the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalogue. The All Star Tutorial Design Team not only design a Tutorial Project that’s exclusive but we also each design an additional project to share here for further inspiration. Today I have a Valentines Shaker card for you - I haven't made a shaker for quite some time, they are super fun! I embossed the bottom layer of the card front using the Gingham Embossing Folder, then using one of the Basic Borders dies cut my "shaker layer". Once I had stamped the Sentiment I positioned 3 large Sweetheart dies. Next I trimmed a layer of Poppy Parade to size to put under the hearts. Next I added a window sheet to the Basic White front, then used Foam Adhesive Strips to give lift and space for the shaker bits (Sequins for Everything). After adding the red sequins, I carefully exposed the adhesive and popped the Poppy Parade laye
