Move The Soul

I have used one of the stamp sets from Power Poppy today along with some products from Stampin' Up!® including the Hardwood Background Stamp and the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I added some craft foam under the coloured image to give the card some dimension. This is a great stamp to colour and a great one for all those male cards.

Petal Palette

I have created a simple black and white card for you today, I have used the new stamp set Petal Palette from the Annual Catalogue. I have had this set for months and only decided to use it now, it has a wonderful array of sentiments in the set. I have used craft foam behind the embossed white piece to add a nice even coverage so the whole piece pops off the card. I am using the craft foam more and more now, Jennifer McQuire did a tutorial on it and it is a very cost effective way of adding dimension to your cards.

Guy Greetings

I have used one of my all time favourite stamp sets today Guy Greetings, I  love this set for all my male cards. I also have used a frame stencil with a matching frame stamp set. I just love this technique and how the finished card presents itself. I chose to sponge all my panels with a blending tool and my ink pads before stamping my images from the Guy Greetings stamp set. I just love this look.

Hold On To Hope

I have a card for you today using the beautiful sympathy and encouragement stamp set "Hold On To Hope", I love this stamp set. You can make very simple cards or go all out with embossing, die cutting and fussy cutting to create your card. I will be doing a tutorial on this card over on my UTUBE CHANNEL so please subscribe so you don't miss it. With this card I started off using some Night of Navy cardstock for my base card, then cut two pieces of Whisper White cardstock and with one of them I embossed with the softly falling embossing folder and cut out my oval using the Layering Ovals framelits. I then stamped on my piece of Whisper White that wasn't embossed and cut my oval out of the Whisper White piece that I had embossed. Stamped my cross in Night of Navy then stamped on top of my cross with Whisper White, I then cut my cross out and adhered it to my card just off centre and finally adding my sentiment.
