Hello and welcome aboard our Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.
If you have arrived here from Georgia O’Shea’s blog Georgia Creates then you are in the right place.
If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
Today we are showcasing our favourite products from Seasonal Expression 1 catalogue. The stamp sets and papers will be retiring at the end of this month. So take a look at the blog hop and see if our favourites interest you.
The stamp set I have used for this card is Woodland Romance. This is my favourite stamp set from the catalogue as I love the vines and flowers. Throughout the idea books there are little tips throughout and the one that is next to this stamp set I fully agree with.
“When scrapbooking my favourite photos I like to cluster beautiful details around them so they take centre stage”
This stamp set has so many little pieces that can pieced together to create beautiful details.
I have created a card for blog today but this idea can also be used on a page. As this card is for a wedding I decided to personalise it with their names on the front. However you could add a sentiment or if using the idea on a page add a photo.
The ribbon frame is from the artbooking circuit cartridge, the Flower in the bottom corner
is from Art philosophy cartridge and the hollow flower is from Artfully sent.
To turn the hollow flower gold I pushed it into the versa mark stamp pad and then embossed with gold embossing powder. I have used this technique before. You can take a look at it Share the Love.
I have added the vines from the stamp set behind the flowers for the clustered details. If you want to see the vines used in another project you can look here
The small flowers in the top corner are stamped and then embossed to give them the 3D look. These make great little accents to any project. Here is another project I have created using these little flowers. I have added vines to these flowers also. All flowers have been finished with Bling Gems Gold.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my project. I hope you have seen just how fantastic this stamp set is and that you grab it before it retires at the end of the month. Please leave a comment before continuing to Vandra’s Virtual Craft Room.
