COLOURFUL SEASONS & HEARTS COME HOME MEET FAUX SILK

 

Hi Stampers ! Today I have a gorgeous Christmas card I am excited to share with you ! I love just playing with my supplies until my card evolves ! I used Smoky Slate , Coastal Cabana and Pool Party to create my tissue paper background . This was then scrunched up when dry , then unwrapped and heat embossed after the versa mark was gently dabbed across the creases - I love the texture  ! All that was left to do was die cut my snowflakes and village!

BOTANICAL BLISS BOX HOLDS GIFT CARDS , TAGS AND FULL SIZE CARDS

Hi Stampers !
In today's special class we created this lovely box which holds 4 note cards , 4 tags and 4 full size cards and envelopes . We used the Botanical Bliss bundle . I had taken  a class in which we created a similar box to this quite a few years ago run by  Kathy Faulkner . However , the instructions have only recently became available . The instructions and template are only available in class format .
I am sure you agree that this would make a beautiful gift for any recipient ! I gifted one similar to this one to my lovely downline for her birthday but that one was a little more labour intensive - we do this for friends don't we ! She was delighted with her gift and keeps telling me how much she loves it - what more could you wish for ?
We have had such a lovely day and to top it off my ladies brought lunch as well ! That was so lovely as I had planned on being up super early to make lunch and received a message yesterday evening telling me that lunch was sorted ! Love that ! I did make some scones though and they were delicious as well !




Following many requests for the instructions to create this box i have decided to add the template I used ! You're welcome and happy creating !

ROOTED IN NATURE TEXTURED BACKGROUND


Hi Stampers !  I am still playing with this technique , loving it ! This time my background is enclosed in a window sheet ! I will say this card looks much better IRL the photo does not do it justice at all . I was happy with my background and used softer ink colours before adding the white embossing powder . I hunted for a rectangle shape and grabbed the door shape from the At Home bundle , forgetting it only cut three sides , not to worry , I just used my S.U trimmer to cut the fourth side ! Once my trees were die cut I stamped in versa mark on top of them and added some white embossing powder and heat set it . I adhered my window sheet behind the white cut out shape , after stamping my sentiment.

FAUX SILK SEA OF TEXTURES


Hi Stampers ! I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with this background once I created it ! At first I thought of clouds and hot air balloons but then I wondered if it looked more like the ocean so decided on a  favourite bundle - Sea of Textures . This card came together really quickly once my Brusho background was dry and all of the die cutting was done ! What do you think ?
