I carried on playing with the Tailored Tag background that I featured
on my blog yesterday, when I used the Gold and Very Vanilla Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) on a
The two cards I made yersterday were a new baby girl card, and a new baby boy card, and then I made a
video which saw me create a masculine birthday card. All will be
I was downloading the video to YouTube yesterday evening, I starting working on
You may remember the masculine birthday card I shared
earlier this week, which featured three strips of the Wood Textures
Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack, which I explained I had seen in the quarterly SU Demonstrator's Success
There was another idea in that article that appealed to me
which is what I'm sharing today i.e. brayered Wood Textures DSP!
Apart from that my
card is nothing like the card featured in the magazine!
Recently I've been getting quite a build-up on my desk of images and sentiments
that I've stamped/coloured/fussy-cut/die-cut/etc. all just waiting to
As the Petal Palette Stamp Set is my favourite set from the
Spring/Summer Catalogue, it's not surprising that a lot of these images
and sentiments are from that set.
I was looking through my cello bag that holds my Wood Textures DSP
Stack, I found two very light-coloured pieces of DSP already cut to the
right size for a card front.
Next I tipped out the cello bag that was
holding the ready-prepared Petal Palette sentiments and images, and

change the colour of the wood DSP!
Unfortunately, my photographic
skills leave a lot to be desired, but I think you can get the idea of what it looks like from the
photographs - the DSP looks absolutely fabulous!
I adhered it to a layer
of Whisper White CS and then tied some ribbon around just below the
flowers image, which I'd popped up on Dimensionals; then I adhered it to a Blushing Bride card base.
I found another
ready-stamped flower stem - the same as the one on the sentiment - coloured and fussy-cut it, so I could adhere it inside the card!
card I'm really pleased with.
I'm going to get back to making my swaps for OnStage, because as soon as I've finished
them, I'm hoping to make a video showing how I made them; I want to
publish it on Sunday next weekend, the day after OnStage.
No time for
I hope you have a peaceful, relaxing Saturday.
Until tomorrow, happy crafting,
