Hi Everyone, before we begin today’s super amazing post! I would like to introduce to you our guest designer Crystal for September! Yay! Here’s a little big about her….
Hi! I’m Crystal! I am so excited to be your guest designer for September! Now to tell you about myself, I have 3 children ages 9, 4 and 2. Married for nearly 10 years to a wonderful man. We recently moved from Wyoming to the Pacific North West! We decided to build a house, so all my crafting is done from our 5th wheel, which is where we currently live in. I call it “camper crafting’”! When life isn’t consumed by family and running around being mom taxi, I enjoy card making. I’d say my style is clean and simple.
I began card making back in 2013, after discovering it could be much quicker than scrapbooking. I love to send out cards to my friends and family. However recently they been going to a local nursing home, where they are given to the residents of the facility.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you follow me on Instagram cthompson427 or my blog at
Now here is Crystal’s amazing post and gorgeous cards! Don’t forget to leave a comment welcoming her to our team this month!
Hello there! Crystal here from www.crystalthompson.net with my first post as your September Design Team member!
Today I am showcasing a set of cards I made featuring the Fresh Bouquet stamp set.
So let’s get started!
Since I knew I was making two cards, using my MISTI I stamped the flower images onto some Ninna white paper using archival ink. Once that was dried, using my water based ink pad, I water colored the flower bouquets. One in pink, and the other in blue. While those dried, using some basic dies I die cut the patterned paper that looks like wood. Then heat embossed my sentiments in glossy black.
Next, I fuzzy cut the flowers and adhered them to the card base with foam adhesive to give them dimension. Finished off by adding some water droplets.
I am sending one of these to my in-laws as they are having an anniversary, and the other one will go to my “nursing home” pile.
I enjoyed making these, hope like them too!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
