Masked Birthday Card with Blossoms in Bloom

Hello Everyone,

What a colour combination I have for you today! This worked out so well. The deep shade have a stunning impact in this design.

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

The touch of blended ink really makes a difference to the overall look, giving the stamped section a more defined edges.

Thus is the original card which I really like too. Totally different feel to this card!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I’m going to confess that I’m not a massive fan of all the images in the Dressed to Impress stamp set… But I just love all the accent stamps!

Creating Subtle Backgrounds with Decorative Masks & Pastels

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a technique to create backgrounds using the Soft Pastel Assortment.

Using this medium gives a much softer colour to the background than can be achieved with inks.

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

The piece was simply layered with coordinating cardstock with a die cut sentiment added with dimensionals

This card used a different mask but the same pastel colours. This time the sentiment was cut with the Double Oval punch.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Christmas Wreath Card using the Sparkle of the Season

Hello Everyone,

I’ve had this card idea in my head for a while and I’ve finally managed to make it!

For this layout I used eight die cuts which I then used to create four pieces that I could arrange to form the wreath design.

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

The Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon is absolutely gorgeous in real life. It finishes off the card brilliantly.

This sample uses more die cut, 12 in total, and uses a mixture of leaves in Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green. The sentiment is stamped with Poppy Parade.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
