Love and Kisses

Hi everyone - Ann here with a pretty little card for someone special - Love and Kisses.


I'm still loving the white on white effect, and have kept it up with this card, with an embossed layer of white on a white card base.  The Love die comes with a 'shadow' die, or outline die, which this time I have cut in vellum, just to 'smooth' out the embossed background behind the word.

Inside my card, I have repeated the flower, and a few stems - to tie into the front of the card.



These are the steps (and a tip or two) to complete this card:

1.  Cut card base 28 x 10.5cm and fold in half to create a top fold card.

2.  The embossed panel measures 10 x 13cm - the tip here is to cut it before embossing - otherwise the lovely embossed pattern becomes flattened if you cut your rectangle using a die, which I did.

3.  Die cut Love from a soft pink card stock, and the shadow from vellum - of course, you can cut the word from any colour card and mount it on white, which looks stunning.

4.  The flowers are white heat embossed on vellum - I chose two blooms from Altenew Wild Hibiscus stamp set - and then coloured them with two shades of peach Copic markers on the back.  The tip here is colouring on the back of vellum makes it so easy - no need to avoid the white embossing, so that when you turn it over, the white is clean and the colouring is so soft.

5.  Die cut a few leaf sprays or stems - mine are from MFT Leafy Greenery.

6.  On a scrap piece of white card, 1cm high, stamp a sentiment to complement the die - I used part of a sentiment 'and Kisses' from the Altenew stamp set Heartfelt Sentiments.  This is a wonderful stamp set, with so many sentiments that can be used for all occasions.

7.  Arrange the elements of the card - my main concern was the flower spray, so placing that in the bottom right corner, I fitted the focal Love die just below the centre line of the card, glued it down with Mono Multi glue behind the letters, then attached the flowers and leaves below it.  I tucked the little stamped sentiment below the Love.  Then using fun foam behind the dry embossed panel, I popped it up on the front of the card.  I added a pearl to the centre of each flower.

So there you have it - a new word die for me, and a very pretty embossing folder, to make yet another flower card!  I can never have enough - it seems!

Thanks so much for visiting today, and I wish you lots of crafty time!

Four quick cards One stamp set

Hi there, Angela here! We all know I am the queen of Quick and I love value for money too!  I got this little stamp set from Pink Paislee Turn the Page. It is a stamp that you probably overlook, which I nearly did! As I do have most of what is on there in some form or another in my stash. Im glad I got it as I have been churning out lots of one layer cards for my stash!!  I know I RAVE on about the LUXE inks but I think they are the bomb and a MUST have for your stash. The stamps I have used for these cards are new to Scrapbook Boutique from Ranger Letter it OH LALA!!  they are awesome  and I just love large script stamps that fit all occasions.





* All cards are 10cm x 28 cm and folded in  half
CHEERS:  I die cut a circle and used that as a template guide.  I started at 12 o'clock and then with alternating colours I moved around temple.  Stamping sentiment with onyx black in the centre with my Misti.
*WOO HOO Stamp the first star in your first colour using acrylic blocks for this one (its easier to line up) and repeat changing your ink colour.  Finish off with the dotted outline star in Onyx Black ink and finish off with sentiment in black too
*CHEERS BUTTERFLY Stamp butterflies with outline stamp in black onyx around the page as shown. Using different ink colours stamp the solid butterfly inside the outline. Stamp sentiment in Black onyx and finish off butterflies with wink of stella clear.
*ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY Stamp solid flower repeatedly in a straight line from the left to the right of the card using a variety of Luxe Inks.  Go over the flowers with the co ordinating solid stamp in black onyx. Stamp sentiment with Black onyx and finish off with wink of stella.

"Adventure" Scrapbook layout + process video by Louise

 Hi Crafters

Louise with you on the blog today.
My share for you is a new boys page.

"Adventure"


This page features the fabulous Pink Paislee Wild Child.



I knew that the colours and patterns of this collection would make a great boys page.


I created the background using Distress Oxide in "Cracked Pistachio" and "Broken China" with the packaging technique and water.


As with most of my pages, I love to journal the story.
This one is quite funny.
We'd recently had some new tyres put on our car, Master C was fascinated by the process and decided he wanted to put new tyres on his truck.
This photo is the result ... 
I just love the feet sticking out the end :)
