Sending Big Hugs

Hello there. Cardz 4 Galz has started a new challenge, and Billie A has chosen the theme of ‘Use Kraft‘. Here is my card:

For this card I used a previously created background – Altenew stencil and gold shimmer embossing paste, cut just a tad smaller than the 5 x 7 inch card base.

The Lawn Fawn die was used for the sentiment, cut out of Kraft, then again cut out of black card stock, glued slightly off-set -which I think makes the sentiment stand out more. I even remembered the tiddle above the letter ‘i’ – layering and off-setting just like the main sentiment. Some silver sequins for added bling.

I’m looking forward to seeing what you create for our ‘use Kraft theme’. xx

Hello – some fabulous crafty time this past couple of days. I have created a card for a few challenges:

I’ve been playing with some layering stencils recently, and this stencil from Pinkfresh Studio caught my eye as I loved the tumbling leaves, and that the flowers you create are all cut individually using the matching die, so you can out them wherever you want to.

The stencil is slimline size – as is the die and stamp set. Once I had stamped the outline, I used the colours from the current challenge at Color Throwdown to create some pink tumbling leaves at the top, but used green for the leaves around each of the flowers. The Altenew ink sets are perfect for layering colours.

Once I had die cut them, I just played around with placement, making sure I left space at the bottom for the sentiment.

The background stencil piece is from my stash – a previous crafty playtime using an Altenew stencil and a gold shimmer paste. I still have a few pieces left from creating that day so you will be seeing that in the future.

The sentiment is from Time For Tea Designs, which comes with matching dies. The word ‘Happy’ was stamped using a pink and purple Distress Oxide, and multiple stamping to create a two-tone word.
