Healing Hugs Roses

Hello and welcome to the July edition of Stamping Around the World blog hop. This hop is a fun addition to the monthly tutorial bundle. We all are using the same products we used when creating a project for the tutorial.

In my tutorial, I used Healing Hugs stamp set and today I created this card.

It's a very simple design. For the card base, I used the thick vanilla cardstock. The roses are stamped off in one of the new In Colours, called Rococo Rose. The leaves are stamped in Soft Suede and so is the sentiment. It is cut out with the Pretty Label punch. It is backed with Rococo Rose cardstock. I used some flower and heart embellishments to finish the card off.

Above the Clouds

Hello and welcome to another Stamping Around the World blog hop. Once again, a group of us is getting together and bringing you even more projects in addition to this month Tutorial Bundle. 

While my project in this month bundle is more involved I decided to make a simple however versatile card.
It can be used for so many occasions - farewells, graduates, travels even wedding or honeymoon. By switching colours of the background card stock as well we the balloons images you can make it more feminine or masculine. Or gender neutral. And the beauty is it is an easy card to replicate.

Measurements: It is easy to cut as all the layers are designed to create 2mm or 1/16" border. So each card stock is 4mm or 1/8" less than the previous one. 

Card base - 21 cm x 14.8 cm, scored at 10.5 cm on the longer side
                  8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" on the longer side
Terracotta panel - 14.4 cm x 10.1 cm
                                    4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
White panel - 14 cm x 9.7 cm
                     4" x 5 1/4"

To create a sky-like background I used a blue ink pad and aqua painter (you can use just a wet brush). In the past I'd press on the ink pad when closed and then when you open it there is an ink residue on the lid. I no longer do that as I noticed the pressing is pushing ink into the corners and my middle of the pad is dryer than the rest. So now I stamp the pad on a clear box and pick up the ink from there. My pads are happier for it. When you are done, just wipe the block with simply shammy to clean it. 

Do you feel inspired by my project? I hope so. If you have a go at it and you share on your social media, tag #craftingwithangels so I can see your awesome versions. So get your supplies out and craft! 

If you don't have the bundle yet, take advantage of the full and clickable shopping list. Shop with me and the bundle is on the way. Or purchase the bundle on its own

Kre8tors are crafting for Dads & Grads

Welcome to June Kre8tors blog hop. This month, a group of about twenty designers is showing their takes on Dad and Grads. You are in for a treat. Just follow the "Next Arrow" image at the end of each post to see all the projects.

I decided to create a card for a dad. It is a very simple design. The background is just stamped with one of the birthday background stamps. It is stamped on the base as well as the white strip. The grey strip is first run through the big shot in a subtle embossing folder. Then it is glued on the white panel.
I stamped the words on whisper white in memento black ink and coloured each letter in a different colour marker and then I fussy cut the words. I don't know how about you but fussy cutting just calms me. Do you like to fussy cut?
The words are stuck on the grey strip with mini dimensionals. The final touch is some stars cut with Twinkle punch and glued on.

Bermuda Bay card base - 21 cm x 14.8 cm, scored on the longer side at 10.5 cm
Whisper White panel - 14.8 cm x 7 cm
Basic Gray panel - 14.8 cm x 3 cm

That's all from me. Are you ready to see more lovely projects?  Either click on the "Next" image below to see what talented Libby Fens came up with or choose a crafter by name from the list below.
