EMBOSSING FOLDER

 Morning Everyone,

This is a first for me at this technique.  I have used a Simon Says Stamp embossing folder called Blossom Field and coloured it with copics.


The inks seemed to soak in quite a lot and whether it's because the paper has been stretched a lot I'm not sure, but I don't think I will be trying it again in a hurry, not with copics anyway.  I have used a happy die, which I think is from WPlus9.  I've had it a long time and don't keep all my dies in their packets so can't quite remember.  The 'birthday' was heat embossed in white.

A short and sweet post. Thank you for your visit and have a good rest of the week.  The weather certainly seems to be getting a bit better here.

WITH OR WITHOUT WORDS

 Morning Everyone,

It's the start of a new challenge over at As You Like it and we are asking if you prefer your projects to be with or without words/sentiment.

I always have some sort of words on my cards even if it's just a "hello". I like to know what the card is for when I'm making it otherwise it would feel unfinished.

I have used an image kindly provided by our sponsor:

I printed the image twice, firstly onto a piece of blue designer paper with the sentiment and then onto copic friendly paper.  The image was coloured with copics and then I cut out the balloon and the basket and stuck them onto the blue paper.  The cloud outlines are from Lawn Fawn.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you can join us in the challenge.

STATEMENT FLOWERS

 Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well.  I've had a nice afternoon of crafting and managed to get this card finished.



 
It's an Altenew stamp called Statement Flowers.  I stamped with a grey Memento ink for a change and coloured with copics.  I wasn't quite sure how the card was going to end up so I fussy cut the image to make it easier to experiment with layout etc.  I ended up by placing it on top of a Tuck In Scribble die from Tattered Lace, cut in grey and just added a sentiment heat embossed in white and a few dew drops.

MORE SNEAKERS

Hello Everyone,

Now that my daughter's wedding is over I can get back to some crafting again.  We had a wonderful day and even though it was a bit chilly on Saturday we didn't let it ruin the day.

Another card made using the Woodware Sneakers stamp.  I've used the same paper pad as my last card with the stamp, but a different layout.



This card was for my niece and I have paper pieced with the star paper and coloured the white bottom of the sneakers with grey copics.

FAVOURITE EMBOSSING METHOD

Morning Everyone,

First of all I'm sorry if I haven't visited your blogs lately.  Our daughter is getting married on Saturday and things have been a bit hectic with preparations and we have visitors arriving today so lots to do.

We have a new challenge over at As You Like It and we're asking for your favourite embossing method.  Mine is definitely heat embossing, especially on Christmas cards. I love all the shine.



Not had much time for crafting but this card was in my partly made pile so I finished it off for the challenge.  I've heat embossed the background stamp from Pinkfresh Studio and coloured the berries in with copics.  I've also added glossy accents to the berries but this doesn't show in the photo.  The sentiment is an old one from Clearly Besotted, also heat embossed in gold.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

Thank you for visiting and have a good weekend when it arrives.  Fingers crossed the weather stays fine for us.

FAVOURITE SKETCH?

 Morning Everyone,

A bit late with my post today.  I've had to do this on my laptop this morning and it always takes me longer as I'm not used to using it.

Today is the start of a new challenge over at As You Like It and we're asking for your favourite sketch.


I don't very often look at sketches but this is the layout I use when I have a bout of brain fog and stuck for an idea.  It uses up some of my patterned paper of which I have way too much!

For this card I've used a LOTV floral wreath and coloured with copics.  The sentiment comes with the image and the papers are a digi download from ages ago from Nitwit collections (I think so anyway). 

The sponsor for the challenge is:


If you pop over to the challenge you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the DT.
