For the Love of Stamps Floral Favourites Design Team Card using Stamps and Dies to create 3D Flowers

Good Morning!

  Today I am sharing a card I have made using the beautiful new Floral Favourites stamp set for the Apriil launch of For the Love of Stamps by Hunkydory.


I use the Polka Dot paper from the FTLOS stamping pad and Distress Ink to give the 3D flowers a vintage look. I used the fab gold mirri card from Hunkydory to give this card a luxury feel alongside the vintage inkyness.

Crafty Ribbons Design Team Card using Bake Ribbons and Ribbon Threader Die by John Next Door

Good Morning Everyone! 

Today I am sharing a Design Team card for Crafty Ribbons I made with ribbons from the Bake Ribbons Collection. I used: Cake Slice Large, Cake Slice Small and Cut a Slice Cinnamon. You can see the original blog post over at Crafty Ribbons Inspiration here


On the Design Team facebook group we have been chatting about a new die set by John Next Door which is for ribbon threading. It sounded fab and so I decided to treat myself to the dies. It took some working out in my head how I wanted to use them and which ribbons would work but I'm so happy with them!

It was very easy to thread the ribbon once I die cut and I love how I've made my card all about the beautiful ribbon!


To finish my card I added a bow and some gems and pearls to act like sprinkles on top of the cakes!!!

Diamond Dream and Wish Tags using Distress Spray Stains - Guest Design Team Project for Imagine Design Create

 Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing some tags I have made using the pattern stamp set Diamond Mix and a sentiment from Never Stop Making Wishes by Imagine Design Create . I have used Distress Spray Stains and Distress Oxides for these tags.
You can view the original blog post here!  


I have also used:
2” x 3.5” White Card with the end punched into a tag shape
Distress Spray Stains: Picked Raspberry, Antiqued Bronze and Picket Fence
Distress Oxide Ink: Walnut Stain, water filled brush, Blending Tool
Bakers Twine, White Gel Pen, Gems


I stamped the four diamond stamp onto the tags in different places using the Oxide ink, the sprayed the tags with the three different Spray Stains to blend them together.

 
I inked up the large solid diamond gently to give it a distressed look, so the stamp is not totally covered in the ink. Then use the water brush to blend a little. 


I stamped the sentiment in the Oxide ink where there was a kind of gap in the design and then once dry added some white gel pen to highlight the words. I cut the bakers twine to length and sprayed this with the pink stain to create matching coloured twine.



To finish I blended the Oxide ink around the edges of the tags and added some pink and gold gems randomly to give the tags a bit of sparkle.
In hindsight I might have tried stamping the sentiment in a different colour to make it stand out more but I happy with the overall result.


Thanks for stopping by,
Sarah x
