In Bold Colour

Hi there! We are back as promised with gorgeous inspiration from Teresa Morgan this evening…



This week I have another of the cards I created for the Create and Craft sellout show.


This one uses the beautiful Visometry set along with a really cool sentiment.




My background was created using some soft pastel colours of Distress Oxides,
I then stamped the Visometry stamp with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

I love how you can align these stamps to join them together and stamp larger designs.



The sentiment is embossed with a deep pink embossing powder which is transparent,
allowing the colours underneath to affect the tones – it’s a nice effect which works well with these words.





Thanks to all of you who tuned in to watch the show and make it the massive success that it was.


Don’t forget to check out the links below – from next month we will be adding a themed challenge
to the Facebook group as well as our regular Show and Tell!

Hi! Thank you for visiting our blog today.

We are back with more gorgeous inspiration ahead of our Create and Craft TV show this Saturday! More details at the end of this post.


Teresa Morgan has an amazing card to share with you…



This week I have been playing with my Distress Oxide inks to create a fabulous background for this beautiful sentiment stamp from Visible Image.




I applied different colours of Distress Oxide inks to my card base, spritzing with water then heat dryin before adding another colour. I continued until I was happy with the result then stamped the dotted circles also using Distress Oxides.



The doodled circles are stamped with Jet Black Archival ink, and the sentiment is stamped with Versamark and embossed in black.



I love how the Distress Oxide colours sit on top of each other – it makes for some fun contrasting patterns.




Stamps Used:

The Greatest Journey Lies Ahead

Hello there! Thanks for popping in today.

We have more awesome inspiration to share with you for this weekend’s show on Create and Craft TV!

First up today is Elina Strömberg…

Hi and happy Thursday!

Today I’m sharing with you two colourful tags that I made over the wonderful long weekend:



This time I did not use ready made manila tags but die-cut the size 8 tags myself. Actually I cut both tags twice; once from solid purple paper and once from a colourful paper I had inked with Distress Oxide inks. Oh how I love playing with those!



Whenever I’m working on a colourful background I like to use some contrasting black and white elements that really make the vivid colours pop. Using the fun ‘Visometry’ stamp set by Visible Image I stamped the same geometrical shape several times on a white paper, coloured the triangles with black and grey markers and cut out. It’s always fun to find new ways for using your favourite stamps!

In addition to the Distress Oxide layers I created more background patterns with Visible Image ‘Scripted Streets‘ stamp. The tiny black splashes are black ink.

The word stamps are from Visible Image ‘Destination Unknown‘ stamp set. Again I mixed and matched the quotes in a new way; love that creative puzzle play!

I did not use any dimensional elements on the tags, so both of them are thin which makes them perfect bookmarks, too. I think that the quote text is matching that use; when you have a good book in your hand you know that a great adventure always lies ahead!

Wishing you a nice week. Many thanks for stopping by!
