Topical Tuesday Video (tt014)

Hi everyone,

Today I have a video to share with you that I have created for AnnaBelle Stamps. To view it you will have to head over to the Stamp, Embellish, Create site at AnnaBelle Stamps and click on the link.

I decided to create a card using the tapped embossed resist technique. Previously I used this technique to create these cards, so I decided to show you how I did this – just changing up the final product a bit (as I find it hard to make the same card twice!) Go here to view the video.

Ink: Versafine – Onyx Black, Distress Inks – Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade

Say it with…Kraft, Lemon and White

Welcome to another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. Hope you are ready to be challenged this week – I certainly was! I love using bright happy colours on my cards – so having to tone them down for this challenge took some extra thought.

Thankfully I had some cute little roses in my stash which made the job a lot easier! I clear embossed BBD#3 onto some kraft cardstock and the sentiment is from Fanciful Flowers. I even pulled out some patterned paper – a rarity for me.

Print Candee Blog Hop

Hey there crafty lovers,

Glad that you have joined me for this month’s blog hop at Print Candee. You should have arrived from Jocelyn’s blog. The Creative Team have been busy creating cards inspired by this photo.

I love all the summery colours. I was drawn to the middle bag on the left with all the rainbow stripes and the cool texture. It inspired this birthday card for a friend’s daughter who was having a rainbow themed birthday party! I think personalised cards are extra special.

I used the Rainbow Dots Paper Pack from The Digi Butterfly making sure I used the same colour sequence as the photo and the hexagon embossing folder gives the card great texture (like on the bag).


Digital Images: Rainbow Dots Paper Pack (The Digi Butterfly)

Ink: Canon colour printer, Versacolor – Atlanta Blue, Tea Green, Orange, Camellia, Kaisercraft – Corn

Card: Regal Craft Cards – Textured white square pre-scored card, Bazzill card – beige

Other Supplies: MFT Butterflies die-namics, Cuttlebug, Sponge daubers, Craft Concepts – Hexagon Illusions embossing folder, AnnaBelle Stamps 4mm Icicles, Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue, craft wire – black, foam dimensionals, American Crafts Thickers, Martha Stewart 3 in 1 butterfly punch
