I was asked to make some samples for Sheena Douglas for her shows on Create and Craft using the new range of Darcie Embossing folders which can be purchased from Crafter’s Companion. I had the Birch Tree and Flames Folder to use.
I have made 6 samples in total.
The first three are made using the Birch Tree Folder.
Here’s the first one:
I have used one of the Die’sire Dies from Crafter’s Companion and created a posy using some flowers and leaves from my stash of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers range. I have used ribbon and pearls from the ribbon box. The base card is a 5x7” scalloped edge from Papermania. I finally gave a the whole card a spray with Crafter’s Companion Spray and Sparkle Pink.
Here’s my second card:
For this card I embossed some Core’dinations card stock and then gently rubbed over it with my silver ink it up pad and then sprinkled some snowflake sparkle heat it up embossing powder on. I must admit I like this effect, it’s the first time I have used it. I added some matt and layering with centura pearl and holographic card stock. I then used some of the toppers from The Snowman Range from Crafter’s Companion.
My third card:
This card is a bit more simple using toppers from my stash, some ribbon and a few pearls from the Ribbon Box.
My second folder to use was the flames one.
My first card using this folder:
Again this is a simple card. I have stamped and coloured a SWALK image using Neenah Card and Spectrum Noir pens. Matt and layred using core’dinations and gold mirror cardstock. And added some candie gems and ribbon.
The second card:
For this card I used the flames as an inspiration for a hot themed card!! I created the sentiment on my pc and used a couple of my spellbinders dies to build up the topper. I added some gems and ribbon. The matts and layers are core’dinations, gold mirror and centura pearl.
The third and final card.
Now I like this card.
I have used an image from the Humphrey's Corner Crafting Collection CD from Crafter’s Companion. I mounted this onto some core’dinations cardstock which I had ran through the embossing folder and sanded. I matted this onto some gold mirror card.
I used some gold mirror card to make an A5 base. I have used a backing paper from the cd and matted this onto some red core’dinations. I created a border strip using some gold mirror card and my woodware border bunch and some ribbon from the ribbon box. I finally added some padded hearts from my stash.
Well I hope you like my cards and I will be back soon with more creatons.
