The Artful Stampers Blog Hop 103

Welcome from Karen's blog this week.

A colour challenge this week

I have done a really simple card again this week as life is pretty hectic preparing for the upcoming school holidays and my trip to Brisbane Onstage Live..

Here is what I came up with using a new set that is in our holiday catalogue.

We have finally got a new camera.... now I need to learn how to use it as it is very very different to our last one.

  • Stamps: Day at the Beach and sentiment from Tin of Cards
  • Ink:  Island Indigo, So saffron, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake
  • Card: Whisper White, Island Indigo and Crushed Curry
  • Embellishments:  Dimensionals

Next on the hop is Jane

Welcome from the amazing Carolyn's blog this week.

It hasn't been the best couple of weeks for people passing away unfortunately and I do have at least 3 sympathy cards to get made.

This one is going to a friend back home who's beautiful husband passed away yesterday from Brain Cancer.

  • Card: Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Blushing Bride and Silver Foil
  • Tools: Sunshine Wishes & Layering Squares with the bigshot

I think most people will be doing Christmas Cards so I thought I would use something else from the new catalogue.

I love Paisleys

I haven't done much in the way of embossing lately so this was the perfect opportunity.

 My sister in law had her birthday yesterday so we gave her this card below :-)

So pretty.
I love embossing and putting colour over to make the images pop!
