A great way to make a gingham background is to use the Buffalo Check stamp. You can use it as is with ink to paper, or you can add straight lines with a ruler and different colour pens in the middle of the white checks to give it a different look. I used it as is for this card using the Daisy Lane bundle.
A great colour combination that could be black, yellow and white or navy instead of the black.
The white pieces are all cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits (squares and oval). Doesn't it look like summer!
I needed to create a quick gift card holder and grabbed for my new package of Woven Threads DSP. It has all the new In Colours and some of the paper is a soft muted look....that was my choice for this project.
It is really simple to make your own gift card holder...I used my gift card and measured it settling for a 2-1/2" wide by 3-1/2" high pocket. It only took a little bit of paper!
I went back to my Time for Tags set to add the tag to the front of the holder.
The Terracotta Tile piece was inserted through the inside of the Everyday Label punch to get the shape at the top of the tag. The bottom was a flagged end.
The foil edged cards and envelopes are a great addition to anyone's craft space. So easy to use them as a card base and the foil edge gives the card a very classy look. I used the Silver Foil Edged cards for this card using the Daisy Lane bundle.
When you stamp the green foliage image make sure to stamp off and stamp, as well as stamping full strength as this will give you dimension and texture to your background. The daisies are two stamped and cut out images slightly offset and attached in the centre. I curled the edges under with my bone folder.
I have waited way too long to get a chance to play with this set in the Annual Catalogue called It Starts With Art!
Searching around on the internet I have found some of those sketches where they give you a rough idea of a card layout and thought I would try it....this is what I came up with.
I actually made two cards with this layout using different colours and some different pieces from the suite. I will share my other card later on my blog so stay tuned!
Hello and Welcome to the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop for September. Thanks for joining us!
The theme for September is "Fabulous Fall".
Fall reminds me of children going back to school, the harvesting of crops, and Thanksgiving which we celebrate in October here in Canada. My projects reflect on these fall events!
I love the "Ride with Me" stamp set and the coordinating dies "Truck Ride" from the Annual Catalogue. They can be used for any occasion and are easy to colour with either Stampin Blends or Stampin Write Markers.
I used Terracotta Tile, Cajun Craze and the Regals 6x6 Designer Series Paper Pack.
You could change the sentiment to "Happy Birthday" or anything else that suits the purpose for your card. Supplies are listed below.
My second project is a bookmark I made using the "Harvest Hellos" bundle which includes the stamp set and matching "Apple Builder"punch from the Holiday Catalogue.
I used the Regals 6x6 Designer Series Paper Pack and some Real Red and Whisper White cardstock. A great gift for your new teacher on the first day of school!
Supplies are listed below.
