Spotlight on Nature Butterfly

For my third card, I wanted to use the little butterfly image in the Spotlight on Nature bundle. Since the image is a bit smaller than the others, I popped it on a die-cut circle, and chose 2 patterns of the Country Woods DSP to frame it. I chose some purple-toned Blends to colour with - Blackberry Bliss and Berry Burst.

I also stamped the sentiment on the circle, and wrapped around some Linen Thread tied in a bow.

Spotlight on Nature Leaves

Here is my second Spotlight on Nature card. Again, I've used the Country Woods DSP in the background. I love the rustic texture on this pattern. Using Blends, I coloured the leaf image to co-ordinate. 

The Spotlight on Nature Circle dies have beautiful decorative borders that add an extra detail. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of White cardstock, and lightly stamped it in Crumb Cake ink with the cross-hatch image from the set to add some texture. I also wrapped around some Linen Thread and tied it in a knot.

You can see everything I used listed below.

Spotlight on Nature Flowers

This week I'll be sharing some cards made using the Spotlight on Nature bundle. This stamp set has some beautiful images in it, and the dies are so versatile. I've already used mine a lot (I do love circles!). I coloured this image using Blends.

In the background I've used this beautiful blue textured pattern from the Country Woods DSP. The finishing touch, that ties in with the rustic feel, is some Linen Thread. 

I'll be back with more soon!

Thoughtful Journey Cards

Here is my set of cards that I made using the Thoughtful Journey DSP, along with the Unbounded Love stamp set. I used Basic Beige for all my card bases, and embellished using Linen Thread and Iridescent Foil Gems. 

These came together so quickly. I'm going to make some more using the other patterns in the pack!

Thoughtful Journey For You

I love this tranquil scene from the Thoughtful Journey DSP. I took inspiration from one of the cards on page 46 of the new Catalogue. 

To give it a bit of extra texture, I crumpled it up a bit and roughened up the edges. I used dimensionals to attach it to my Basic Beige card base, and angled it to give it a bit more interest. 

The finishing touches are some Linen Thread and some Iridescent Foil Gems. You can see everything I used listed below.

Thoughtful Journey Birthday

I have a very simple card to share today. I've just taken a piece of the Thoughtful Journey DSP and cut it into 3 panels, making the middle one a bit wider. I popped them on a piece of Basic Beige cardstock. Next I wrapped some Linen Thread around twice, and tied it in a bow.

Isn't this Birthday sentiment a great size, and such a gorgeous font too - cursive, but not too swirly, so it works well on a more masculine card. I stamped here in Mossy Meadow. A few Iridescent Foil Gems add a touch of sparkle.

Have a great day!

Thoughtful Journey Sympathy

Sympathy cards can be tricky to make need to strike the balance between being not too somber, but not too cheerful either. I think this image from the Thoughtful Journey DSP is just perfect. 

My base card is the new Basic Beige cardstock. It works really well with the colours in this paper and is softer than a stark white. I think I'll be using it a lot! It reminds me a bit of the old Sahara Sand.

I've already used the sentiments from the new Unbounded Love stamp set a lot. They're a great size and a lovely font. I recommend getting the bundle - the dies co-ordinate with all the words, but they'll also work with lots of other sets you already own.

I've kept the embellishment on this card to a minimum - just some Linen Thread and a few Iridescent Foil Gems.
