One sheet wonder: Venetian Romance dsp

So after the mammoth OSW I did last month, I decided to dig through the dsp to do another one. I chose an old (2014!) piece of dsp from the stash. This was a set called Venetian Romance and I love it.

I created 12 cards in total and loved pairing this old dsp with my new stamps!

I also distressed the dsp and the kraft cardstock I was using as a mat. This left a large amount of paper fluff everywhere but love the effect it created.

So I’ll share the first four tonight and then rest tomorrow.

So Birds and Branches is the stamp set for the focal images… such a beautiful stamp set.

This first one I added the panel of the craft card and embossed with the Pinewood panel 3d set. I also added the linen thread and the pearl as embellishment.

This card I added some stamping using the Birch background stamp. I also found some ribbon in the stash that seemed to work with the Calypso Coral colour in the dsp.

The Best Wishes sentiment I chose are from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set.

For this one I found a paperclip that was the perfect match too… added that as a different embellishment.

Love the way the four cards finished up… the stamps breathe new life into the old paper. So pleased I got to use it… after 6 years of it sitting in a box!

And for those interested I made up my template as I went along but these are the measurements… (I’ve drawn this out after the fact!) And yes I did and up with a spare 1″ strip but that’s because it was damaged on my original piece of paper!

Happy crafting!

Stampin Up Sunday: Arrange a Wreath

Hello! Here with another SU project using current SU products… this time Arrange a Wreath stamps… but I am not using the stamps to create a Wreath… instead a masking technique to create a fun border.

I masked a strip and then stamped alongside the strip and blended some ink before I removed the masking strip. I then used the Forever Fern stamp for the sentiment.

I also used a gold gelly roll pen to edge the strip and add some dots.

I also added some enamel dots to embellish!

Obviously I will make the stamps to do a wreath at some point but it was good to use them differently for this card.

So if you fancy this stamp set, just drop me an email and I will order it for you. (Catiecuddles@yahoo.co.uk)

Happy crafting!
