Just a really quick post to share a card I've made for the current challenge at Muse, and I've managed to combine a few more challenges too, which I've detailed below.
Last weekend I attended the Sincerely Yours Papercraft Show in Taunton and one of the stamp sets I bought was from Honey Doo Crafts. I spent ages browsing the stamps on their stand as they are all completely gorgeous but in the end I was very good and only purchased one which I've used on this card. I will certainly be buying more though as the designs are beautiful and they don't charge for UK postage either!
So, here is my card using this stamp set called Flowers for Design...
I stamped the blooms and leaves in VersaMark on clear vellum and heat embossed these with white embossing powder. Before fussy cutting them out I coloured them on the reverse with FlexMarkers. Fussy cutting usually drives me mad but the embossed edges make it so much easier! I layered up the flowers and tucked some leaves in behind. To finish I stamped the sentiment in black, such a gorgeous font from one of the new Clearly Besotted sets, and added two Doodlebug Sprinkles in white to the centre of the flowers.
- Stamps: Honey Doo Crafts - Flowers for Design; Clearly Besotted - Eastern Delights
- Ink: VersaMark; Versafine - Onyx Black
- Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White
- Doodlebug Sprinkles in Lily White
- Vellum and cardstock from stash
- Coloured with FlexMarkers
Here is the beautiful Muse card by Marion Vagg, I think it's pretty easy to see that I was inspired by the blooms, colours and layout.
I would also like to enter this card at the following challenge blogs:
