Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! I am thrilled to be welcoming Emma as one of our guest designers this month! We are super excited to have her here! Please leave a sweet comment below. 🙂 Now here’s Emma…

Hello

I am Emma; I am thrilled to be here as a Guest Designer for Inspired By Stamping from my blog, Non Stop Crafting! I am a 21 year old bedbound crafter and creating has become a sort of Physiotherapy for me. I am a very creative person; I love painting, music and reading and I am passionate about crafting – especially cardmaking! I live in rural Northumberland, in the North East of England; we are surrounded by wildlife and I often have birds and rabbits coming near the window and there is a little squirrel that makes a daily visit across the garden. Anyway… enough about me! For today’s card, I’ll be using the Big Thanks stamp set and doing some tone on tone stamping. I have a video where you can see the entire process of how I created the card.

I began by die cutting the label from Inspired By Stamping’s Fancy Labels 3 set and stamped the “Thank You” from the Big Thanks stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. As I planned to do some in laid die cutting, I placed the oval die down when I was positioning my stamps with my MISTI tool; if you don’t have a MISTI, you could lay down the die and line up an acrylic block with an element on your card or the edge of your paper.

I blended Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Rusty Hinge and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks onto the label; the latter of the two were just on the edges to help give an aged, antique look. I cut the oval and then held the two pieces together with micropore. I used the flower images from the Big Thanks stamp set to do some tone on tone stamping with Peacock Feather and Broken China Distress Ink – I created a couple of masks with a post it note for the flower which is just an outline image, I felt the complete images didn’t need masks as I was going to be stamping in the same colour. You can see the entire build up of the stamping in the video.

I cut two holes in the sides of the label with a craft knife and thread some crochet ribbon from Inspired By Stamping’s Christmas Ribbon set.

I put some black foam on the back of the oval and label before adhering them together; it was quite easy to line the pieces up as I could match the flowers and part of the “K” up.

I added some vellum and mounted the entire panel onto an A2 size Kraft card base. I adhered the ribbon down with some double sided sellotape; I placed it along the length of ribbon that would be on the back of the card for extra security.

And that is the card finished! I hope you have enjoyed the video and reading about my card. I can’t wait for you to see my second post!
