Thankyou for popping in this morning - I hope that you are all well and have had a great week.
Last week was busy as ever with our fabulous Let's Create Dabble Day. It was a fantastic day with lots of fun with wall to wall crafting and cake and tea - what more can we wish for!!
This week at Allsorts we have been asked by our Chief Team Member aka Brenda to show you a project that we have made without using design papers.
I couldn't decide which one to show you so I have two!
A really quick an easy little number using Tattered Lace embossing folders and Tim Holz Poinsettia die and tag. The card size is a 7" x 5" and I have embossed the corner of the Holly folder and then coloured it over with distress ink and Treasure Gold wax. I have used the Holly border folder across the tag too. The poinsettias were die cut and stamped onto with a music stamp from Sheena and then inked and spritzed. Candy and vintage ribbon finish off the design.
The second design that I have decided to show you is using an embossing folder from Crafters Companion Vintage range. I embossed it and then sanded the embossed areas down with a sanding block so that the ink soaked into the paper more and this has highlighted the baubles. The sentiment is from Stampendous and I have used a little Frantage to embellish the corners. A bit of glossy accents, ribbon and bakers twine bow finish off the project.
I hope that this has inspired you to have a go at the Challenge this week. Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog to have a look at the other Team members ideas and all the information about our lovely sponsors this week.
I have a couple of Create and Craft shows next week - Monday at 4pm and 2 shows on Thursday 12oclock and 3pm and this show is free p and p! Both shows will be using Tattered Lace dies.
Thankyou for popping in and please find a few minutes to leave a comment if you can - I really appreciate hearing what you think to the projects today.
Enjoy a lovely weekend whatever you are doing,
Bye for now
