Merriest moments, Ribbons, Tidings and Trimmings

More Merriest Moments playing

I made these cards over a couple of days and filmed the process for my YouTube channel. I had so much fun playing with the Merriest Moments bundle. The hybrid embossing folder has captured my mojo and I’ve got so many ideas for playing with it.

Firstly I’ve got the plain embossing folder run through where I added colour using the blending tool and then added the sentiment and some of the flowers. I also added in sone die cut sprigs from the Christmas Tidings dies too.

I finished off with a mat of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and some sequins to add a bit of bling. The embossing folder is so pretty and the blending tool makes adding soft colour so easy. Beautiful and simple.

Next up I die cut and embossed the central panel and added colour to the raised foliage with Stampin Blends pens. I kept to a green theme and loved how clean this looked.

Next I added some of the stamped and die cut leaves. Then because I stamped the sentiment slightly wonky I decided to make the whole card a little wonky. I found some sparkly gems in the stash and added those to finish off.

The final one is where the more intricate die I added ink with ink smooshing technique and watercolouring with ink.

I die cut the panel using Evening evergreen to add a lovely base and frame to the panel. The finishing touches for this were some sequins and the pretty green ribbon.

Love how these three cards came together. I still have many more ideas on using these products so watch this space to create more.

Happy crafting!

Biggest Wish, Happy Celebrations, Tidings and Trimmings

More new Christmas goodies … but a bit of a different project!

Yes I bought more new Christmas goodies to play with… I bought the Tidings and Trimmings bundle (and dsp) but I must admit my first play I went off piste and made a birthday card!

The card was very much inspired by the card Martin shared but I went crazy with stars and of course added in the Biggest Wish stamps for the sentiment and the Happy Celebrations too.

I used a range of pink and purple themed cardstocks and ink to created the card using the dies and stamps and then brought in the pop of turquoise with Coastal Cabana card and ink to provide a contrast.

Love how those dies look.. so pretty and can’t wait to create more.

Happy crafting!
