In Good Taste Scrappy Strips

In Good Taste Scrappy Strips

This card uses the Scrappy Strip Technique from Australian demo Bruno Bertucci. I think the papers in this suite work really well and I was really please with how this card turned out.

This suite makes it so easy to make a masculine card.  The Designer Series Papers with all the wood, tile and textile effects make it that little bit different.

As promised, I have one of the projects that we created at the Weekend at the Pinkies Virtual Retreat. This one was designed by the very talented Martin Stone, check out his website at https://martinsmayhem.co.uk/

Ink blending technique

I had so much fun with this ink blending technique that I then went on to make the green card. My technique needs a little refining (I ended up covered in ink) 😆, which is fine by me as I think a card done in all the Stampin’ Up! colours would be an afternoon well spent.

Tomorrow, I will bring you another retreat project.

Until next time, happy crafting

Tasteful Touches Window Card

Tasteful Touches Window Card

This is a great suite for making more masculine cards, but the colour coordination in  the suite means it is so versatile. The DSP and the wooden elements add a lot of interest. I have used the dies to cut a window from the DSP to give a bit of depth to this card.
