cute carton.

Hi every one,

Been having a play with the  "cute carton template`s"  from create and craft, by stamps away, you got the large and small template, this one is the large 9" tall.
well you can make them for  all sort`s of occasions, mine is a keepsake one.

love this embossing folder, oldish one by Couture Creations  Fresh and Fun Collection  "hyper Magical" 5x7  here oyster stamps    I ink the folder to give a bit of colour.
I also  embossed the card piece separate the adhered to the carton.
I put Velcro fastening in the top, rather than threading the ribbon through, easier that keep untying the bow.

blue and white chistmas card

Good Morning everyone,

Warm welcome to new follower,  welcome to all followers and visitors.
 lovely day here beautiful sunshine & breeze,  in the middle of a good clean and washing.

Christmas card, another technique I have not tried before, using a embossing folder and heat embossing with glitter embossing powder, just on the raised design.
I found this technique on U-Tube.. sorry lost the link.

close up of the embossing, sorry white on white, hope you can see the effect.
I stamped the sentiment first, then die cut the card, with memory box "Landscape border" die, then embossed in the folder Couture Creations "Jolly Christmas".
next rub over your embossing with a antistatic bag!!!, using a roller, roll over the raised design, with versamark ink, next sprinkle with glitter embossing powder and heat with you tool.
If you do not use the antistatic bag , your powder does stick to the background as well.

pearl flourish useing stamps

hi Everyone,

warm welcome to all followers and visitors.
miserable here today, Warm but raining.

This is how I did my the doeflex off cuts to make  my pearl flourish on the last card,

I did see the idea on blog land somewhere, but sorry I cannot find you a link, all it was the stamps she had used.

this is what I used..     Fiskars stamp press (best thing I ever purchased)   oyster stamps

you could use your own pearls or gems, do large or small gaps inbetween the dots

these are the eyelet setters Fiskars think they are still about.
this is the Inkadinkado stamp I used, you could use any flourish, the dots do help.
thank you for calling by my blog today .  pam.

Pearl flourish... Made a template from a flourish stamp, I stamped onto  doeflex of cuts, made holes in this, put  in potion, where I wanted my pearl flourish then marked with pencil through the holes, used liquid pearls..(These are so expensive to by)LOL.
Flowers have been stamped, die cut then shaded with DI.
