Hello & thanks for you joining me today on our “Blog Hop” if you came from Hannah McCurley’s blog you are already hopping your way through the projects, if you joined here, Welcome! and let me briefly explain how it works…
Each month we are given a theme and we can get our spin on it. What amazes me most is that even though we have the same sketch we all come back with different projects, hope you enjoy and continue checking the other projects by using the buttons below.
We are having an amazingly warm month, with some exception, we are in England, so summer will never be back to back *smiles*!
I love the challenges to get out of my comfort zone, the incentive makes you try different approaches. This month we have a colour challenge and in honesty, this is a combination I would not naturally get to.
This inlay technique is something that requires a little patience and somehow love of puzzles. However, the results are quite impressive, giving a rich and tactile experience.
Stampin’ Up have a new awesome product that made this process incredibly easier than before, it is the Multi Purpose Adhesive sheets on page 203. Usually, I’d have to use the fine tip glue, which would require many times the amount of time to achieve the same results, die-cutting with this adhesive already in place makes all your die cut bits into little stickers. How cool is that?!!! ( you can find the products I’ve used for this card at the bottom of this post).
I’ve also used a new Thinlits die called Happy Birthday, as this is a sentiment in itself our card today is Stamp free, odd I know, but the beautiful Naturally Eclectic Design Series Paper and sheer from Wink of Stellar makes all shiny and colourful at the same time.
Our next “Hop” is Fiona Whitehead for her blog just click on “Next Blog Button” below.
Have fun and happy crafting!
