Artful Stampers Blog Hop - Faux Wax Seal



Hi there!

Back on board this week with a project using this week's challenge:
Faux Wax Seal

I love the pretty copper embossing with matching copper thread.


I've used the Floral Boutique papers & matching Washi Tape.
The colours are Night of Navy & Whisper White.

The stamp imprint is from the Floral Phrases Stamp Set.

I've used a sprinkling of Pearls & one of the Delicate White Doilies.

Faux Wax Seal Challenge

For your own project, try this Faux Wax Seal tutorial of Shelli's 





Go on & enjoy the rest of the stunning projects from the other Blog Hop girls!

Hi there!

This week's challenge was a handful of colours, 
which look fabulous all lined up, 
though I would likely not have matched!

A few bits and pieces on my craft bench started this card off, 
...and the rediscovery of my 
Wink of Stella!! 



The Lineup!

Punch Art Blue Toad Birthday Card


There was a Mario themed party happening, and I needed a card,

The birthday boy's favourite characters were Yoshi & Blue Toad

(and as uneducated as I was on all things Mario, I had to google both! :) )


Blue Toad was decidedly a lot easier to create, so here it is!

Blue Toad, punch art version :)

Artful Stampers Blog Hop - 5 Colour Challenge




Hey there!

Hope you had a fine weekend & loving the wintery chill! 
I suppose it is Winter after all! :D



Here's my card for today's challenge - it was a colour & a sketch challenge.

I really only met the brief with the colours!
Was so enthusiastic that I forgot the sketch.

It did have a circle element though...does that count? :)

The Colours!! 




Thanks for your company 

Enjoy the rest of the hop!


Be sure to leave some comment love for the girls too :D

Product Review - Die Brush


PRODUCT REVIEW 
by Anna :)



Can't remember ever doing a product review before, but I thought I'd do one on the Die Brush  (maybe first of many???)

I'd been putting off purchasing the Die Brush as I thought I could just continue with the 'poke all the holes out with a small sharp object' method.

It's time-consuming & fiddly - especially with the more intricate thinlits.


So, I tried the Die Brush out first with the 'Rose Garden Thinlits'.

Ran it through the Big Shot on a Magnetic plate (though you could use the Precision Plate or even the Standard Platform

My Big Shot was already set up with the Magnetic Plate... & it works...so wasn't going to change it!


All cut out.
Sometimes a few pieces will fall out when you take the thinlit out of the Big Shot


Place the Die/Thinlit paper side down on the Foam Pad.

Run the Die Brush back & forth over the entire Thinlit & exposed cardstock.

Check.it.out!!

All fell out when I lifted off the Thinlit!



Goodbye 'poke it with a small sharp object' method!

Hello Die Brush!!!! :D


And the card made with the 'experimental' pieces :)

I'm convinced!!  You?! :)


Thanks for stopping in!
