Honeycomb Embossing

I have wanted to try this out for some time now, and yesterday was the perfect time to sit down and do some fussy cutting.   Is it only me, or does anyone else find fussy cutting relaxing?  A bit like watercolouring, knitting and crocheting…..

Perhaps one day Stampin’ Up! might bring out a punch to coordinate with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder used here, but for now, each piece of the patterned paper had to be cut by hand.   I have also used one of the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder along the bottom, and one of the Delicate Designs Folders along the top.  Can you tell that I love my Embossing Folders?? 🙂
The Crumb Cake coloured layer is one of the pieces from the Pop Up Posies Kit which I have cut one edge off and popped under some Crumb Cake ribbon, and the greeting comes from the Apothecary Art stamp set.  Oh and mustn’t forget that gorgeous patterned paper, which is from the current seasonal catalogue on Page 16, called the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack, lots of beautiful papers in it and they are great for cardmaking.

The sketch I have used for this card is this week’s sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge site, and I always love a sketch challenge, so thought I would have a go at this one.
If you have any questions about this card, please feel free to contact me or leave a comment.
Happy Stamping!

Oval Framelits

I have to apologise for my lack of posts recently, things have been rather busy in our household.  I have been doing a little crafting so I will try to catch up and share some of them with you.
Today I will share a card that I made using the new Oval Framelits.  I just love oval shapes, especially on cards, but have only just had the chance to try them out.  Need a few more hours in the day, I feel.  Or perhaps I just need to sleep less 🙂

This card uses the Everything Eleanor, Papillon Potpourri and Apothecary Art stamp sets, along with the colours Bashful Blue and Midnight Muse and a half of one of the pretty doilies.

Promise to be back soon with more of my creations.
Happy stamping!
