Happy Friday Friends! We are here today with Grace and Jo. Both talented ladies have created some fabulous cards. Don’t forget to mark your calendars because our release begins this Monday with lots of prizes, designs and so much more! Let’s get started with the talented Grace!
Hi crafty friends. Grace here to share with you a quick card that reflects the season that we are about to come into. I love the autumn season. The weather is a little bit cooler and the leaves start turning into it’s Fall colors. So beautiful!
With this card, I rummaged through my scrap stash and gathered papers that reflected the sentiment/season of my card. Then I used the Happy Fall stamp set to add my sentiment along with some fall leaves. I decided to curl the edges of my handcut leaves to create some dimension and "motion" to my card.
Thank you for joining me today and Happy creating.

Next up is Jo with a beautiful card! Today is her first official design team post with us so please give her a big welcome! Here is Jo with her beautiful card!
Hi Lovelies Jo here today, I based today’s card with the September IBS Sketch Challenge and I have featured a classic flower stampset called Elegant Flowers.
I just love the effect when using white embossing powder and making an image appear so it looks like the image literally unfolds in front of you as you colour it in.
I first heat embossed my stamped image from the Elegant Flower’s stamp set on a water colour cardstock. I find water colour cardstock works best when using gelatos and an aqua brush as don’t want the cardstock to pill as I layer my colours on.
I used the Inspired By Stamping Fancy Labels Dies #2 to create a faux layer by keeping the metal die on as I sponged inwards with my Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool and the Antique Linen Distress Ink.
The bow I folded in half so the width of the ribbon would be thinner. This is a great tip to use if you don’t want your bow to overpower the stamped image but still have an embellishment on your card.
We hope you have an amazing weekend! We will be busy behind the scenes getting ready for Monday! Have a great crafty weekend! With paper hugs, Joanna xxx
