Hello and thank you for stopping by this week but an even bigger thank you to Cary who has been posting for me. I am now almost back to myself and back crafting again thankfully, albeit slowly! This week I started to make some cards using the gorgeous new stamp set and dies etc called Irresistible Blooms. The images are beautiful and added to the dies too, they just go so much further.
For my 2 cards today. I started by making THIS... an all white based card and added a white mat with a piece of DSP from the Fitting Florets papers. Just this simple strip of DSP adds a lovely hue through the card. I used one of the dies from the set which literally die cut the stripe going through the card. What a difference!
I repeated most of the steps from the first card onto the THAT card. I made it in Balmy Blue card this time no mats other than the flowers. The patterned DSP was added to the inside of the card itself so you get to see the reverse of the paper. I used one of the new embossing folders from the Basic 3D embossing folders
