This is another Forever Young card, and this time I embossed the lovely tree and girl on Crumb Cake cardstock.
It’s a simple card. The paper is Crumb Cake, the now retired Newsprint DSP, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. The wide Basic Black Striped Grosgrain Ribbon is my favourite on this card. I don’t use this ribbon enough!
The sentiment is from that wonderfully useful stamp set, Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
This is a bit of a different way to use Forever Young. I’ve also used the stamp sets Curly Cute and Pocket Silhouettes. And you can see Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and the 2010-2012 In Color Patterns DSP Stack plus a touch of Chantilly lace ribbon.
I’ve used two different techniques for this card: embossing and marker to rubber.
This is a close up of the embossing. This time I stamped the clock in Early Espresso ink, then versamark ink and then onto the Subtles Collection Patterns DSP Pack when I heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
This is a close up of the marker to rubber, using the Pear Pizzazz marker and Blushing Bride marker pens.
The colour combo is Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride.
Here is another Forever Young card. I borrowed the stamp set from a friend, Christie Wallace (you can check out Christie’s amazing creations here), and had a play with it – lucky me!
This card also uses the embossing technique. I stamped in versamark and then heated black embossing powder over the image. The colours I’ve used are Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray and the Neutrals Collection of the Patterns DSP Stack.
The sentiment is stamped from the stamp set Curly Cute which fits perfectly in the Extra-Large Oval Punch and is layered with the Decorative Label punch. There is a touch of SU Basic Black satin ribbon and, of course, a gorgeous Vintage brad to finish the card off.
Remember when I used to blog? I’m so sorry it’s been so so so long. You would think with three gorgeous kids at school now (kindy, year 1 and year 2), I would have more time. BUT (there is always a but). My business has taken off (I haven’t even advertised yet). All my work comes via word of mouth. This is good, but means my time must be devoted to clients first. Fortunately, even though I’ve lacked in blogging I have still been creating! So, I have a lot of photos to share and I hope I can get on a roll again so you, I hope, can find inspiration when you visit.
This is a card I created last year and was inspired by Teneale Williams here. Teneale has such amazing work, you must visit (if you haven’t before)!
The colour combination is Basic Black and Concord Crush. I’ve used Basic Black cardstock, the 2010-2012 In Color Patterns DSP Stack and the old Newsprint DSP. I embossed the images using versamark and black embossing powder and finished off the card with a Vintage brad and a strip of Very Vanilla paper punched with the Lace Ribbon border punch.
This is a close up of the sentiment stamped using Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
