So, Monday rolled around again which meant it was time for our weekly Facebook Live. I’m so enjoying creating projects for our weekly broadcast and just loving the interaction as we craft! These live Online Tutorials are a great way to enjoy some crafting fun and join in without having to attend an ‘in person’ class. I try to make sure that every week there are new techniques and lots of tips for you and this week was no different!
I decided to focus on some of the stamp sets that are included in our fantastic World Cardmaking Day Promotion with 15% off selected sets!! This offer only runs until 10th October, but we also have a great Designer Series Paper sale going for the entire month of October. When you buy three packs you can choose a fourth one for free!
Anyway, on to the cards…….
So we began with a super simple card that showcases some of our wonderful Designer Series Paper. My sample used my favourite – ‘Whole Lot of Lovely’. I just love the floral patterns of this one and the bold black elements to it. I think it’s really elegant and classy. The card I made used the Delightful Daisy paper. This has lots of very feminine patterns but I chose a pattern that I think makes a great masculine card.
- Basic Black Card base 14.5cm x 21cm
- Designer Series Paper 14cm x 10cm
- Whisper White scrap
Next up was a very simple card using the Colourful Seasons stamp set. The sample used Rose Res ink and cardstock while the one I made used Elegant Eggplant. I love the simplicity of this one with just some stamping.
- Very Vanilla 29cm x 10.5cm
- Very Vanilla 13cm x 9.5cm
- Rose Red / Elegant Eggplant 13.5cm x 10cm
Then we got all technical with some heat embossing using the Oh so Eclectic stamp set. This has got to be one of my favourites as I just love all of the different elements in it. Plus, I love the look of white embossing on Crumb Cake that we used for this card.
- Whisper White 14.5cm x 21cm
- Whisper White scrap
- Crumb Cake 14cm x 10cm
Our final card was one inspired by a card made by one of the ladies at our Chertsey Craft Club and used the Daisy Delight set in an unexpected way to great a lovely soft card that would work well as a masculine card or even a sympathy card. I love the way the leaves look like feathers flying about on a breezy day!
- Smoky Slate 10.5cm x 29cm
- Night of Navy 10cm x 14cm
- Whisper White 9.5cm x 13.5cm
