Delicately Detailed Speciality DSP

Hey everyone,

Delicately Detailed Speciality DSP - what a mouthful! But what a beauty!
Read on to see what it is and how I used it.

The last Colour Inkspiration challenge was a lovely combo indeed!

No automatic alt text available.

This would look lovely on any type of card, depending on which colour you made a feature.

I had several ideas, but, as usual, as I get going the idea evolves and changes.

Originally I had been going to do a leafy border in white and gold with Navy sentiment.  Well, it certainly changed a lot from that!!

Check it out....

I used the new Delicately Detailed Speciality DSP - beautiful lace paper sheets and panels.
I cut out a strip carefully from one of the sheets and then coloured it Night of Navy.  

 I did this by laying it on the ink pad and using the edge of my clear stamping block to press down into the ink - it was rather messy but the coverage was great!

I stamped the sentiment twice - once on white card in Night of Navy ink and once on Pink Piroutte using Versamark. I masking everything except the word "friend" on the second one and I then gold emboss with gold embossing powder.
I fussy cut the word "friend" and laid it in place on the other sentiment which I raised up on dimensionals.
I mounted it all on gold foil and attached to a white card.

Very pretty!

What do you think?

You can get this new Designer Series Speciality paper and stamp in the  new catalogue due out very soon!

Just think what you could create!

'Til next time
Keep creating!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - CASEing Jessica Taylor

This week we are CASEing Jessica Taylor - number 118 globally!!!  Wow!!
Looking at her blog I can see why.  It is full of amazing information to help you get started, try new techniques and full of inspiration.
There was plenty to choose from to CASE  - I was spoilt for choice but I loved the look of this collection using a retired Sale-a-bration set.

I updated the look with the new Animal Outing set from the new catalogue (coming very soon!!!)

This set has some very cute animal images - the only one I didn't use was the Giraffe.

The Kangaroo has a little Koala in it's pouch - very cute and a nice tribute to us stampers down under!  I decided, as he had the little arm (?) sticking out, it was just right to hold a sign. I used the Petal passion paper as it has many black and white papers to choose from, and this reminded me of jungle vines.
The Rhino, not often thought as a cute, is just that, especially with the little bird perched on his horn.  The embossing folder reminded me of an…

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Nadine Weiner

Blog hopping today with the Crazy Crafters and Nadine Weiner.
We had to CASE something from Nadines blog and WOW!  What a choice!
I think I have several designs, in reserve, to try at a later date.  
Check out her blog: And you will see just what I mean!
So the card I went with is this one:
I love the simplicity, and the black and white with a pop of colour.
Here's what I came up with........

I used Petal Passion DSP for the background.  There are a few black and white papers that I could have used from this pack. My pop of colour was Bermuda Bay - one of my favourites! - with Soft sky behind.

My "flowers" are from Eclectic Layers thinlits (they look a bit like broccolini!!). I left the top unattached to give a bit of dimension.
I popped them up on dimensionals and threaded the sentiment in behind. I mounted it on Bermuda Bay to tie it all together, leaving a slightly larger border - so I can see more of this yummy colour!!
Such a fresh looking card.

Colour INKspiration #29

Colour INKspiration has a new colour challenge every fortnight on a Wednesday evening.  I am always excited to see what combo is waiting for us, and then I get my thinking cap on!
I am particularly thrilled to be a guest in this Colour INKspiration #CI29 blog hop!

The challenge for #CI29 had a lovely rustic feel and I was instantly drawn to the lovely bouquet.

I started thinking woodland......cascading flowers....woodgrain.....texture... and surprisingly, it came to me pretty quickly what I wanted to do.
I pulled out the colours I needed and started to put it all together.

I used my layering circle framelits to cut a circle frame from the Wood Texture DSP with a Very Vanilla circle underneath for stamping my sentiment.
The flowers and leaves were cut using the Bouquet Bunch framelits.  I trimmed the bunches down to get the shapes I wanted and cut some individual ones to add here and there.

Added a bit of dimension by raising the circle frame up from the Very Vanilla base.

The final touch was …
