Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again with another guest blog post and step-by-step. For today´s post I created a set of flower cards using a stamp masking technique. By adding a different sentiment, this basic idea can be used for almost any occasion.
Alexandra from The Hedgehog Hollow here today! I’m so excited that we have brought back Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow. I will be here once a month with a cardmaking video tutorial. Today I decided to use the new Ocean release from Tonic Studios to color in the stunning Floral Background stamp. This is such a versatile stamp, I have so many ideas with it, so expect to see more projects featuring this stamp on the Hollow!
I love how the on-point background just pops and looks so elegant, you could of course do this in any color scheme but I love the effect the blues give.
I always enjoy stretching my stamps by using non-holiday stamps for holiday cards, mixing them with some holiday-themed accessories. For this card, I have combined flowers from the Laundry Party Clear Stamps with Easter eggs from the Spring Sentiments Clear Stamps set to create a bright and colorful Easter greeting. Here’s how I made the card:
Today’s card was designed for our dear granddaughter’s 18th Birthday. It is so hard to believe that our first grandchild has turned 18! Where have those years gone? I wanted to showcase a few of her baby pictures and what better way than to use Susan’s Garden Notes Square Window as a frame. Also from Susan’s Garden Notes, I have used the newly released Cornflower Bachelor Button.
Hello to all,
This is Anita here. How was your Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday Shopping? I am sure you all must have shopped to your heart’s content at the ECD store as there was a fabulous scheme going on.
Today let us celebrate the coming days even more by planting smiles and love with a card made with Susan’s Garden dies and a wonderful sentiment from her stamp collection along with other dies from the ECD line. I chose Love in a Mist, a beautiful flower that I learned to make by watching Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Facebook video tutorial, and I encourage you to watch it so your flowers will be realistic and lovely, just like hers!
Hello Friends, Piyanki here with a new project using some brand new Susan’s Garden dies. The collection is fun , creative and as always immensely intricate to give your flowers the perfect shape and natural look. For today’s post I have chosen the Garden Notes – “Love in a Mist” (Nigella Damascena) die set. First the name fascinated me and then when I researched a little about the flower, it blooms in the color blue. For a long time I have not created any flower in blue so went for it at once.
Love in a Mist is a common name for “Nigella”. The ferny , fennel like foliage makes it look all the more interesting. With the die set you have the perfect dies for the foliage which will add the natural look once you assemble the flowers. I chose to create my flowers blue for my card, however you can find these flowers in a variety of different colors.
This is Anita here . Cards are such beautiful things to light up a dull moment. We all give and receive cards all the time. So keeping that in mind, I have a note card stand made using ModaScrap dies and decorated with Susan’s Garden Flowers.
This can be displayed and has a beautiful sentiment to inspire you.
