Inspired By Stamping My Valentine’s Release stampset

Hi All, I have a treat for you today! As much as I love making cards I love creating gift tags to go along with gift sets that I have made. I just love seeing the recipients take such great care in looking at the tag let alone opening unwrapping their gift.
I hope today’s tag creations inspires you to add a little something when it comes to gift giving.
The acetate with gold foil accents is from Crate Paper wonder collection. I have used a range of heart punches and dies for these creations.
The inks used for the tags are Onyx Black Versafine, Versmark & Moment Luxe Love Letter.
On some tags I have used Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder to heat emboss some sentiments.
Cardstock for the tags are gold foil, black and white.

Inspired By Stamping IBSIC Dec 2015

This is my last IBSIC blog post for the year and all I can say is that it has been such a fantastic inspiring year. I got to spend my first year as a DT with this beautiful stamping company and I am so glad I have been accepted as a DT for another year. If you haven’t yet used their products I highly recommend how versatile, fun and great quality their stampsets are.

Today’s blog post I have used the colour combination as my muse.
Instead of using all the colours and making one card  I used a colour and created an individual card for each colour using the “Friends”  stampset.
My style for today’s card is simple yet fun and can easily be done in bulk as it is my favourite way in creating cards as I like giving my creations away as packs to friends and family members.
Placing a strip of designer paper on the left hand side and a thin strip of black or white cardstock along side it as a contrast strip of colour to separate the designer series paper and card base.
Using a stitched circle die I then ran the die cut through an embossing folder to give some texture to the card. Each sentiment has been heat embossing with Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder on black cardstock. The add on stamped sentiments  has been stamped on a white strip cardstock and placed around the heat embossed black cardstock.
A punch has been used to make the bow as the embellished piece for the card.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card creation and don’t forget to check out the other inspirational Design Team members creations.
