Beautiful Friendship - With The In Colours

Today's card is one I didn't think I would be showing you :o)

I used the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and all of the newest In Colours.

I didn't like it at all when I first started the stamping. I really struggle with Magenta Madness - it's just too bold a colour for me even though I love bright colours. It's quite satisfying though when I create something with it that I actually like.

I didn't stop stamping and continued to use all the In Colours - I thought I might as well finish the panel ... and then I liked it :o) It's bold and busy, but the overall effect for me is good - so I ended up using the panel in a card.

The ribbon is our Bumblebee Gingham.

The speckles were stamped using the splatter stamp from the Waterfront set.

Prized Peony - Shaped Easel Card - Video Tutorial

In today's Video I show you how I created these gorgeous Shaped Easel cards.

They are very simple to do and you can use your standard-sized cardstock to make them.

I used the beautiful Prized Peony stamp set for the flowers and the Peaceful Moments set for the sentiment.

The colours used on this first card are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and a little Mango Melody for the flower centres.

This is what the card looks like closed. With the Flowers extending past the sides, it measures just under 7" x 5" and would fit into a standard envelope for that size card. Alternatively, you could create a box for it. 

This is the card I created in the Video. I used Rococo Rose, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody.

The Whisper White panel used on the front has been embossed using the Dainty Diamonds 3D folder.

I used dies from the Celebration Labels set to create the card base and the layers.

The Faceted Dots used on the front of the card are now retired. Alternatively, you could use some of our Basic Rhinestones and colour them with a Dark Blends marker - I did this with the first card using the Dark Pumpkin Pie.

Here is the Video ...

All Things Fabulous - Another 6" Z-Fold Card

I showed you in my previous post how to create this card - just in a different colour. I also briefly showed you this one in the Video. Today I thought I would give you a little more detail about it.

The main colours used here are Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz and Grey Granite.

The background paper is from the Peony Garden 12" Designer Series Paper pack.

All the Flower elements were stamped using the All Things Fabulous set. This is a '2-step' set ... which means that multiple stamps make up each image. I show you all the stamping in the Video so if you aren't familiar with these type of stamp sets it's worth having a look at it :o) 

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments set. 

Here is the card fully open.

And ... here from the top view you can see the Z-Fold.

These are the two cards together. If you are interested in seeing my Video creating the Real Red version - you will find the details HERE.
