Im excited to be sharing todays card with you-last month I took part in Kylie Bertucci's international highlights. It was voted on by the public for a week, and my card was one of the the Top Ten most voted on cards-so Today I get to take part in todays INTERNATIONAL blog hop! HOW EXCITING!!
Check out the card I made HERE.
There are some VERY talented designers in todays Hop. If you want to be inspired, make sure you check everyones cards out-We have all used the sale stamp set- All Things Thanks
I really like this card, especially because I feel a bit like Ive lost my creative juices this week. I haven't felt very well, and thats never good for creativity!
|High Tide, paired with all things thanks stamp sets.|
for bling I added metallic thread and sequins.
How to make todays Card-
- I fell in LOVE with the High tide stamp set form the Occasions catalog-I'm a fan of 2 or 3 step stamping, and THIS set is particularly east to use. Lining up the layers was a snap. (some sets are more challenging, but I got this right first go)
- I stamped with crumb cake (on a piece of whisper white) for my first stamping, getting that lovely detail at the top of the light house. Then, I stamped the colour-Cherry cobbler-over the top. I fussy cut the light house out, added a bit of metallic thread to the back, and added foam strips for dimension.
- I then die cut a stitched frame square, and stamped the sea side back ground, and popped my light house on to the top. I added this to my card which had been layered with a piece of kraft cardstock and a piece of paper from the Tasty treats Designer series paper.
- I gold heat embossed the lovely sentiment from our STAR stamp set today, All things Thanks, on a piece of vellum and added that to the top of my card. ( I actually lifted by light house slightly to get the velum to sit underneath it)
I hope you like todays card- and please check out all the other amazing creations on todays blog hop!
