Make a Difference #WWYS173

Welcome back to What Will You Stamp?  This week we are show casing the wonderfully versatile set Make a Difference, if you are thinking the font looks familiar, you are right, it coordinates with Love What You Do stamp set (which we showcased in WWYS171)



The great thing about this set is that you can create any sentiment that you want or need = YAY! I had a special request for an 80th birthday, so this set was just perfect for the occasion.

The set contains 143 images and is photopolymer, making it easy to align the letters when creating your "personal" sentiment.


My plan was simple.... I knew I needed 80th Birthday & flowers, and I had the gorgeous Share What You Love DSP, so I had a plan..... that's where simple ended as somewhere along the way Botanical Bliss Framelits and the Floral Frames bundle found there way into my project too!


There are may details and elements in this Card in a Box, I admit it, I went a little crazy playing with lots of new toys in BBB (Big Brown Box) that arrived:
  • The background is embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder - and I love it, how wonderful is that texture
  • I layered 3 of the same die cuts with the birdies from Botanical Tags to create the back feature element
  • the side panels use the large flower also from the Botanical Tags Framelits
  • the focal 80th arrangement features the Foliage Frame Framelits - I did a little fussy cutting with the flowers too.
  • The "additional foliage is from both framelit sets
  • 80th is stamped using Make a Difference
  • and Happy Birthday is from Beautiful Bouquet - I used the masking technique to separate the words to put 80th in the middle - and look how the Make a Difference font coordinates with this set too! Winner!
WOW, what a list when you write it all down! Like I said, the end card isn't what I originally had in mind, but as soon as I saw the little birdies I couldn't resist putting them my Card in a Box, and everything went from there!

CCBHopJune17


Welcome to today's Crazy Crafter's Blog Hop. We have Danielle Kassing from the Netherland joining us today as special guest, and I am sure you are in for some amazing creations featuring items for the NEW 2018-2019 catalogue - it's such an exciting time!


Our task is to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) one of Danielle's creations, I chose the below card, I was fascinated with the use of a window sheet for stamping!

I was inspired to go outside "my square" and using Vellum as a medium for my project - I've not used vellum much, it scares me a little! I decided I would dry emboss vellum.



I used the same Big Shot sandwich as I would normally use, I crossed my fingers as I ran it through and it worked! Now I was feeling adventurous, and decided to Heat Emboss the sentiment form Flourishing Phrases (not my original plan as I have melted vellum in the past), I used the lower heat setting on my Heat Tool, and heated from underneath not the top.


To darken/whiten the embossed image a little more I used a white Watercolour Pencil on the back of the vellum, it worked a treat. I layered the vellum onto Petal Pink and put coordinating Artisan Pears in each corner.



Thank you so much for stopping by today, it's always such a pleasure to have you join me! I hope you'll keep on hopping along with me as I visit all the Crazy Crafters on the list below to see what gorgeous creations they have for you.

Tropical Chic on a winters day

What do you do on a weekend that is cold, wet and windy? Craft of course! The weather the past few days has been miserable, teasing me with moments of sunshine, only to be raining a few minutes later, and the wind, brrrrrr just chilly.


My plan was to have a creation day today, armed with a hot cuppa I went into my craftroom and .... nothing, so I went looking for inspiration, and found it at Freshly Made Sketches.

Wishing for warmer days I picked up the Tropical Chic Bundle, I think this is going to be a "go to" set for me, I adore the flowers and the foliage, and the framelits have many options - die cutting the outline of a stamped image, or cutting foliage from coloured card stock. 


Here's my FMS inspired creation using this gorgeous bundle:


I've altered the design a little by flipping the sketch from portrait to landscape, I also embossed the background like some of the Design Team, love the depth this gave my project. 


My sentiment is from Banners for You and cut with the coordinating Bunch of Banners framelits, the beautiful embossed background is courtesy of Layer Leaves 3D Textured embossing folder

Super Boss Day Blog Hop to support HeartKids

Welcome today to a very special event raising awareness for Heart Kids. Like many things, it's not til you see the facts that you realise how many are impacted, My husband and I know of a family who have Heart Kids, and have seen how this has impacted there lives. 



In honour of Super Boss Day I've created a super hero themed card:



Layers of fun here! firstly cutting the Layered Circles and Star for the shield, then to give that shield some "super power" I coated it with a layer of glue from the Fine Tipped Glue Pen - it worked a treat, not only giving a beautiful shine, but it also curved and looked even move like a shield!



I shone a torch onto the card below so you can get a better idea of the shine on the shield from the glue - and learn from me.... leave plenty of time for the glue to dry... that's all I'm going to say on that!



With the sentiment changed, this project would be great for super hero themed party invites, or birthday card too!

Thanks for joining us today. I hope you'll keep on hopping along with me as I visit all the Super Boss Day Hoppers on the list below to see what inspiring creations they have for you.
