Hello and welcome to another Freebie Friday. I hope this post finds you well and ready to create a card or another project using this as inspiration. I’ve used a couple of new products from the Occasions Catalogue and one retired product from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure (however, if you’re quick with a $90 order you may still be able to get it free with your order). Cut a piece of A4 Basic Black card in half so you have your… Read more »

This week’s Freshly Brewed Projects are themed around Travel. So what better stamp set to use than Going Global and of course the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Occasions Catalogue. Here is my first card This card features Lost Lagoon with the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I’ve used strips of the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper on Delightful Dijon on the next layer. I used an Aqua Painter and Lost Lagoon ink to give a… Read more »

Here’s another sample from January’s Technique Class. This card uses the Emboss Resist Technique with added water and colour. I just love this stamp set and the Rose Garden Thinlits which go with it. This is such a beautiful technique and is so easy when you use the Shimmery White Card. I’ve also used Versamark and White Emboss Powder. The sentiment and the image for inside the card and the outside of the envelope both come from the Rose Wonder Photopolymer… Read more »

I started monthly technique classes and this was one of the samples I made using the Emboss Resist and Watercolour Technique. The ladies loved the class and the technique. What do you think of the card? I simply love this bundle – the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Rose Garden Thinit Dies. It’s very versatile and has some wonderful sentiments as well. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark on Basic Black and I used White Emboss Powder before… Read more »

Here’s another card I have made for the Global Design Project #023 | Theme Challenge. I was inspired by a card I saw on Carolyn Bennie’s blog where she did some Faux Embossing. I decided to do a similar thing using Balloons. I just wish I had a way of ensuring the photograph represented the colours better. I’ve used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch out some balloons in Soft Sky and then adhered them to the Soft Sky layer of… Read more »

Another week gone as February seems to be whooshing by. I hope this post finds you well and in the mood to create. I decided to use the Number of Years Photopolymer Bundle today which comes with the Number of Years Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, which are fantastic for this type of card. I made 2 similar cards while I was at it. When I have my Big Shot out I like to cut a… Read more »

  I’ve made an Easel Card this week for the Global Design Project #023 | Theme Challenge. It has many elements with dry and wet embossing, stamping off, ink distressing, masking and layering just to name a few. It was fun to make. I had this idea in my head however it hasn’t quite turned out like the picture in my head. It’s close. I have other ideas for this challenge however I’m not sure I’ll get them made this week….

This week the Latte Girls are bring you some more Freshly Brewed projects featuring flowers.  I’ve chosen to use Grateful Bunch. I’d love to read your comments on this post. This stamp set is a Photopolymer one which means it can be a 1, 2 or even 3 step process depending on what you require. It’s called Grateful Bunch and when bundled with the punch you save 15%, which has to be good, right? I cut the Whisper White about… Read more »

Wouldn’t you love this framed art work at your place? Many thanks to my friend Leonie Schroder who showed me how to make this beautiful framed work. It’s made using 2″ or 5cm squares and they’re in a 5″ x 7″ or 13.5cm x 17.5cm shadow box frame. It looks great on my old cedar chest or drawers. Top row showing some of the beautiful Designer Series Paper in the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack and the bow is… Read more »

This is the last, for the moment, of my cards using the Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set. This is one of the images in the set which reminds me a bit of that string art we used to do many years ago with a painted black board and lots of nails to wind the string around. What does this image remind you of. This would make a great masculine card and is made by simply using Basic Black Archival Ink… Read more »
