A big Thank You to them for sharing some of their fabulous stamps with us this month.
I got to play with the new Banner and Wreath set which I a-d-o-r-e
it down to a more pastel shade of each color, and ouline the whole thing in gold.
- Stamp and Emboss flowers with desired embossing powder, I chose gold
- Color in images with desired medium, I went with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens
- Cut images out by fussy cutting, coordinating dies, or a machine like Brother Scan N Cut
- Ink blend a background shape using masking paper and distress inks
- Stamp and Emboss the Wreath and Sentiment in matching embossing powder
- Layout images the way you want them (I use the press n seal method) for placement
- Adhere down with foam squares

I made a very simple card, but I just love how it turned out. I took the large flower image from Botanical Blooms and gold embossed it on some vellum. Then I colored it in on the back side with copics. So easy. And just luscious to look at. Then I adhered it to some lovely Coal Mine cardstock with some glue dots behind the flower centers. Added some washi for interest, and then it’s complete.
Hi! I was inspired by the first challenge of this month, “Embossing”, and I wanted to make some card just embossing. Mother´s Day is close by, at least in Spain is the first Sunday of May, I decided to focus on that. Here you have the two cards.
As background I used the Hero Arts Tiny Ink Spots stamp wood mounted. Flowers, leaves and greetings are embossed on vellum paper.
I hope you like them. Remember that we started yesterday a new challenge about making card using “one layer“. Don´t forget that joining the challenge you have a chance to win a gift voucher thanks to our loved sponsor, Simon Says Stamp.
See you soon!
Hello everyone! It’s Teresa here today with my solo post for September. I can’t believe Summer is already over and another school year has begun. This week is super busy for me at home and at school because my mom is undergoing a major surgery and I will have to be her primary caregiver until she recovers, since I’m the oldest in the house.
With the new school year I know some of you who have young children will also feel overwhelmed and anxious, because this is when they tend to have temper tantrums! For some of you, it may mean a new schedule to follow as your school-day routine needs some adjustments. All these worries and stress can leave us frustrated, or unmotivated to do other things such as crafting. I am definitely feeling the lows in my crafting recently and wanted to share how I got through it with you all! What helped me the most was talking to one of my good friends about what I’m experiencing and let me tell you, it did wonders! We all have our highs and lows and I’m so glad I made the time to sit down and have a good long chat with her. I encourage anyone who is going through good moments or devastating ones, to share those emotions with someone you trust. You will be surprised at the encouragement and support you get. For this, I had the motivation to make these cards today. This month we are featuring Winnie and Walter stamps so be sure to use them if you have some!
And remember that no matter what, there will always be a rainbow after the rain 🙂
