Flashback Friday



I’m blowing off the dust and cobwebs and re-visiting some of my ‘historical’ blog entries. Some of them are a tiny bit embarrassing and some timeless – you decide. 🙂

While some stamp sets and products may no longer be available –  the card layout and inspiration remain fun to revisit. Welcome to ‘Flashback Fridays’. 

Here’s a post from late last 2012:

Hi All,

Here is another of my designs for the Festive Friday Design Team. This week we had an inspirational photo to help us to create our cards. But for some reason I just can’t load that photo.!! Doh!!!! So you’ll have to scoot over to the Festive Friday blog to see what it looked like. 🙂 You can also see what the rest of the Design Team created and maybe join in the fun and submit a card of your own too!

For my card I’ve used my Greeting Card Kids stamp set from page 14 of the 2012/13 Annual Catalogue. It’s a really fun set to colour and has a nice vintage feel. I used chalks to colour directly on top of the news print designer series paper.

Another fun elements about this card is the speckled effect on the Midnight Muse blue card stock. I’ve used my Illuminate Glimmer Watermark stamp set and directly applied the upside-down pad to the card stock. I had already run the cardstock through the Northern Flurry embossing folder (I’m loving that folder right now). I’ve especially rubbing it over the snowfakes – so shimmery!!!!

A little bit of the Glass Stampin’ Glitter, some circles in(circle punches are sooooooo essential to your basic kit) all sponged with Versa Mark to give some depth.

Hope you like it!!

Happy Stamping

x Carolyn
