Introducing Wonderful Romance

The working week is upon me, and much to my dismay I didn't get much crafting achieved over the weekend.... I did spend a day shopping in search of shoes, but that is another story, and it didn't have a happy ending for my wardrobe, but did for my credit card, lol.

Speaking of shoes, I do have a thing for them, some would possible say a "romance", so when I had no luck with a shoe purchase, I opted for the next best thing, stamping! and used the Wonderful Romance stamp set for the first time (Wonderful Romance with me and shoes, there is a description, and lets not get started on handbags, hahaha)

The lay out of my card was inspired by this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge, I really enjoyed the square shape:


After Copper embossing the design on my mini note card, I applied Mint Macaron and Highland Heather with an aqua painter, then die cut before sponging a little Crumb Cake on the edges. To continue with the rustic theme, I ruffed up the edges of my Mint Macaron layer, then wrapped Copper Metallic Thread around the layers before adhering to the Soft Suede base.  I also sponged the edge of the sentiment die cut, isn't it gorgeous, it's from the coordinating thinlets.

And there you have it, a mini note card measuring 9.9 x 9.9 cm, by using this measurement you can create 3 cards out of 1 piece of A4 card stock.

Ink: Mint Macaron, Highland Heather, VersaMark, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Cardstock: Whisper White, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede
Embellishments: Copper Metallic Thread, Copper embossing powder

Thinking of Botanical Butterflies | Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Wendy Cranford

Welcome to our Crazy Crafters Blog hop with special guest Wendy Cranford for the USA. Wendy is a super talented crafter,  you may be familiar with her blog Luvin Stampin, it's full of amazing projects that are bound to inspire you.
As a Crazy Crafter, our task is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of Cathy's creations, I decided on the below card, I just adored the simple lay out.

Like Wendy, I've made use of the beautiful Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper - it's just gorgeous.... and can be yours FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration, here's my Wendy inspired creation:

I was taken by the delicate detail of this imagery, I paired up with stitched scallop edge from the Be Mine framelits - I can't believe that I missed this framelit when I first looked at the set - I must have been too excited by all the hearts. To add height to my scalloped layers I added a layer of corrugated embossed cardstock.

The sentiment is from Climbing Roses, and…

Floating away with Tropical Chic

How quickly time goes by, it's another All Star Tutorial blog hop already! I'm always looking for new techniques and ideas, and follow a number of paper crafters -there is always so much to learn and seeing one project can open up inspiration for another.

Have you ever seen a project and just had to give it a try? My creation today is a inspired by all the Floating Frame cards I have been seeing, I just had to make one,.. but I was soon to discover that it wasn't going to be easy, search as I did, the wonderful Press & Seal still remains illusive to me here in Australia, whilst there is a Costco in Adelaide, it's a long drive so we don't have a membership, likewise the online options I located are just not cost effective, so I came up with an alternative approach for my card - my solution = a floating card front!

The first phase was to find a stamp set with medium to large die cuts, I opted for my one of my favorite sets, Tropical Chic, then to stamp and die cut …

Delicate Lace with Magnolia Lane

Well hello Saturday! What a long week that was, so happy to creative today, it feels like it's been ages! To get me in the mood I went to my favourite challenge blogs for some inspiration, and I chose this sketch:

For today's creation I've mixed some old with the new - Delicate Lace edge dies with Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. I decided to turn the sketch on the side, it seemed to show of the lovely flowers better.

This DSP is just gorgeous, a mix of floral and stripes all using a beautiful colour palette - yes, it did have me with pink, but honestly if you replaced pink with a purple or yellow it would still be an amazing DSP.

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.
