I have pulled out a brand new set to preview with you all for this project. This set with be available from 3rd August 2021 and is called Gorgeous Leaves.

I chose to work with Cinnamon Cider ink for an autumnal look. This could easily have been any number of colours.

Texture stamps are always useful. Here I have reused the stamp without relinking to create even more texture and depth.

This is a close up of the Chin Craze version!

Easy Cards with the Hand-penned Designer Series Paper

Hello Everyone,

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge really got me thinking about ways to use designer series paper… One of my current favourites is the Hand-Penned collection!

Using this layout it is possible to make 6 of these cards from a single 12 by 12 sheet of paper.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

Whatever layout you choose, you can’t fail to make stunning cards with these papers … And just love Highland Heather!

The jury is still out for me on whether the die cut needs the extra colour…..

These are the results with a different design from the paper pack! The main colour in this design is Pale Papaya.
