Today's my last Blog Hop with the Crafty Collaborations ladies for 2021. We have a Sketch to follow and it's a fabulous layout, I really loved creating this card. I've used elements from the  Heart & Home Suite which is coming out in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue - so do let me know if you need a copy.

scraps

Heart & Home DSP

-------------------------

Take the Cinnamon Cider Card Stock and fold along the score line to create your card base, add the basic white to the inside of the card.

Add the larger rectangle of DSP to the card front.

On the remaining piece of DSP, wrap a length of the Denim along to top edge and secure on the reverse - add this panel to the card front making sure the bottom edge sits flush with the card base.

Stamp the sentiments from Celebrate with Friends in Misty Moonlight ink and fussy cut. Add these to a Basic Gray Doilie and then adhere it to the card.

I decided to use the brand new Boughs & Blossoms stamp set and Punch bundle which is coming out in our New Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue, which is amazing!

Crumb Cake Card Stock

1pc - 4" x 2 3/4"

scraps

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

------------------------

Take the Coastal Cabana card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base. Stamp the leaft image all over the card front with Coastal Cabana ink. Then add the larger piece of Basic White to the inside.

With the Punch cut out a handful of Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake leaves. Stamp a selection of the images using Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake inks and fussy Cut.

Now to assemble....

Hold the Calypso Coral card stock Horizontally and gently rip away at the right hand edge, repeat this process for the Crumb cake card stock too.

Stamp the sentiments into the top right hand corner of the Crumb Cake card stock with Calypso Coral ink.

Adhere the Calyspo coral card stock down to the card front towards the left, making sure you have equal borders around the top, left and bottom edges. Only add glue to the straight edges - leave the ripped edge without so that you have a sort of tuck spot.

Repeat the process above with the Crumb Cake card stock, adding it to the Calypso Coral card.

Now, add you punched elements to the card under the calypso coral ripped edge and add a couple of stamped images under the Crumb cake.

Finally add a flower and leaf image on dimensionals into the space on the crumb cake.

All Things Fabulous Greeting Card - Creative Colour Challenges #CCC16

 Good Afternoon Everyone

Today's card is for this week's Creative Colour Challenges #CCC16. I love this week's combo of  Just Jade, Highland Heather and Blackberry Bliss - I think there's huge scope to create something wonderful. I decided to dig out the All Things Fabulous stamp set, which I haven't used in a while and I love the results.







Measurements

Just Jade Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4" scored at 5 7/8"

Blackberry Bliss Card Stock

1pc - 2" x 4 7/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 4 1/2" x 3 1/4"

scraps

------------------------

Take the Just Jade card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base, then add the larger piece of Basic White to the inside.

On the smaller piece of basic white stamp the sentiments towards the top. The single line in Highland Heather ink and the double line stamp in just jade ink. Add the strip of Blackberry Bliss Card Stock to the right hand side making the bottom edge flush with the edge of the basic white and create a border along a third of the top and the right hand edge, glue this down to the card front.

Using scraps of basic white, stamp the images and then fussy cut. I stamped the leaves in first and second generation Just Jade. The flowers were stamped in Blackberry Bliss and Highland Heather. Ass these flowers are a layering set, I started with lighter colours for the larger, more solid stamps and then went darker towards to more detailed stamps - again using first and second generation stamping.

Create a cluster of flowers and leaves in the bottom left hand corner. I used liquid glue and dimensionals to get different heights to provide depth to my arrangement.

Finally add a highland heather coloured Pastel Pearl to the centre of the three smaller flowers.

I hope you have enjoyed today's card. Please do check out the Creative Colour Challenges blog and see what we are all about, and maybe enter a project of your own.

Fold the Rich Razzleberry csrd atock along the score line and butnish to create your card base. Add the larger piece of Basic White to the inside. 

Adhere the strips of Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz to the card front on a diagonal, trimming off and overhanging edges. You can adapt the widths if you like, I just have these measurements as this is how they can out of my scrap pile. 

Stamp the flowers image onto the remaining piece of white twice, one image slightly higher than the other in pear pizzazz ink. Adding the sentiment to the top left hand side in Rich Razzleberry ink. Take this panel and add a thin line of rich Razzleberry ink to the edge. Do this by holding the card on its side and very gently tapping it straight onto the ink pad. Make sure you let it dry completely.

Add this panel to the centre of the card front.

Stamp the  3 dragonflies onto scraps using the same colour ink and Cardstock. Cut them out with the Dragonfly punch. Layer these three on top of each other and adhere together just adding a thin line of glue down the body so that the wings stay free.

Add this to the card front and gently pull up the wings to give dimension and so you can see all three colours.
