Fancy Phrases Multi-purple layered Card

This is the card I made for Mother’s Day for my Mother-in-law, but could equally be used for a birthday, anniversary or just because. I love the corners which were made with the Detailed Trio punch, which I don’t remember to use nearly enough despite having to buy a second one because I lost mine and missed it so much.

Fancy Phrases Stamp Set – Annual Catalogue 2020/2021 page 126

Base Card – Gorgeous Grape Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st layer – Highland Heather Cardstock 5 3/4″ x 4″
2nd layer – Very Vanilla Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

The image and the rhinestones were coloured with our brilliant Stampin’ Blends. I love that we can use the blends to colour our ribbons and embellishments so they match the cardstock and inks that we are using.

There is a very vintage feel to this stamp set and would be great for those of you who like to make shabby chic cards.

Until next time, happy crafting

Fancy Phrases Birthday

Hello, it’s been a while. I am now almost completely recovered from my fall (still can’t eat an apple and my finger will never be the same again and currently still goes purple and swells if I use it too much 😆) and my youngest has gone back to school so I have my laptop back again. I am hoping to update my blog three times a week, so thank you for staying with me 😀

Card Base – Soft Sea Foam Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8
1st layer – Watercolour Paper 5 3/4″ x 4″
Inside layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

For this card I used the new blending brushes in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue to give a light Soft Sea Foam background on the Watercolour paper.

The ribbon was coloured with the dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends. The image was coloured with light and dark Soft Sea Foam and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

I will be back on Saturday with another project for you.

Until then, happy crafting.
