DT: Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies

Hello all!

Another design team contribution today for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge blog.

This month I’ve used a mix of vintage images and the branch dies from Birds and More to create the main cluster. I then added the copper thread and the Butterfly as the main image.

The background panel i used basic white and stamped using the Artistically Inked stamp in So Saffron, then splattered with Daffodil Delight and the distress oxide in Speckled Egg.

I edged all the little vintage elements using the Vintage Photo distress ink and the Speckled Egg oxides too.

Really happy with the collection of little elements, the stamped background and the few die cut elements too. Also love the font of the sentiment and quite impressed with my fussy cutting if I do say so myself!

Inside the card I added a panel and repeated the idea of vintage elements and the Butterfly and white leaves.

So there you go… my contribution to the design team, and another card for the stash!

Happy crafting!

DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge

I must admit I was a little worried I might not get this done in time, but then Monday night I grabbed myself some craft time and made six cards using a piece of 6×6 cut from the Expressions in Ink dsp (I adore this paper and it was a challenge to cut into I promise!) and the coordinating stamps and dies, plus the Biggest Wish stamps which are my current faves!

I split the panels into pairs and so these are the two where I added the panel of Pale Papaya cardstock which I ran through the embossing folder to create additional texture.

Next these two I used Basic white and added some background stamping for behind the smaller panels of dsp and the embellishments.

Finally these two I added the Forever Gold elements as fun backgrounds plus the Pale Papaya cardstock to finish off.

Love the colours and the gold foiling in the dsp and those die cut leaves are amazing. Love how the stamps work well with the papers plus to create background elements too.

And those biggest wish stamps are still my favourites!

Anyway… this is my latest make for the Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge blog design team and now it is time to go visit everyone else’s blogs and see what they have been up to!

Happy crafting!
