Colourful-Seasons---Close-U

Today’s card is another we created in our Cards @ Toogoom class a couple of weeks ago.  You can see the 1st card here.  Both cards use the Emboss Resist Technique which you can find Technique Tutorials here.

For some reason I love Christmas baubles.  Don’t know why, but I especially love that they can come in all sizes & colours.  I don’t have a bauble set so I set about creating some of my own.

We used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to create our card by randomly stamping the Colourful-Seasons---Insidesnowflake images onto a piece of Whisper White CS, using the Emboss Resist Technique & punching out 3 different size circles.

To hang the baubles we die cut a “branch” from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, & Silver Foil before being attaching Silver Metallic Thread.  The Whisper White background has been embossed using the Softly Falling EF & then layered onto a piece of Dapper Denim CS.

Global Stamping Friends Anniversary Blog Hop

Floral-Phrases---Close-Up

Today I am taking part in an Anniversary Blog Hop happening over at Global Stamping Friends which is a group of Demonstrators from all around the world.  We are celebrating 12 months since the group started & boy has it grown!

For the special Anniversary Hop our theme is ANNIVERSARY of course!logo

I was so undecided as to what I was going to use & how to create my card that I ended up totally confused, so I decided to keep it simple with lots of white.

The past week or so I have been experimenting  with my inks & stamps, trying new ways of stamping & colouring.  My image was inspired by a card sitting on my desk which I will share with you sometime in the future once it has been finished.

My image is from the “Floral Phrases” Stamp Set which was inked using Pink Pirouette & Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers & stamped direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  I then grabbed my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker, scribbled colour onto a Block & picking up small amounts of colour at a time with a Blender Pen, coloured over areas of the Pink Pirouette.  I repeated the same technique for the leaves using Wild Wasabi Ink.  I think it brings the flower to life.

Floral-Phrases---InsideThe flower was die cut with the oval shape from the Stitched Shape Framelits by running through the Big Shot.  As I wanted my card to be mostly all white, I decided to add a small scallop Whisper White frame behind the oval so I die cut another piece of Whisper White CS using the Layering Ovals Framelits & running through the Big Shot.  This piece was adhered to the stamped oval.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White CS with the Softly Falling EF before layering onto the Base Card – Flirty Flamingo.  The oval shape was adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the “Beautiful Bouquet” Stamp Set.  I thought it suited the card & blog hop perfectly.  It was stamped onto scrap Whisper White CS in Flirty Flamingo, cut each end into a Banner Shape & adhered to the bottom of the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I do hope you have enjoyed my card.  Be sure to check out all the other wonderful creations joining the blog hop.
