We are thrilled that they said yes to playing along with the Crazy Crafters this month as Sam is VERY talented and has a following all around the world. Thanks Sam and her team. x
How exciting!! There's a whole new catalogue coming out on 5 January 2016 & it's got so many great items in it! I just about wanted everything from the Occasions catalogue!! It's all gorgeous! I'm so excited! I've got my good friend's wedding coming up & I knew exactly the card I was going to make for her as soon as I saw the lovely Rose Garden Die set! She absolutely loves navy, so there's my colour chosen.
Now the theme this month is ONE - one stamp set, one die or punch, one colour card stock, one Designer Series Paper (DSP), one colour ink etc etc. So Night of Navy card stock with the Rose Garden Dies & I might throw in a bit of the lovely Botanicals Vellum DSP....
Let me work my magic & hey presto!! Here's my card, I hope you like it!!
As you can see, I didn't end up using any ink and instead I chose to use this lovely Celebrate wooden embellishment. I have covered the Rose Garden die cut with Crystal Effects to make it really pop from the card as it's also Night of Navy. I've then backed it with the Botanicals Vellum DSP with the little blossoms on it & fussy cut it out.
I tried several different options with this rose, using the matching stamp in gold, daubing the rose in gold, but the gold just wasn't working how I saw it in my mind. It was actually my husband's idea to use the Crystal Effects & I think the gloss navy on the matte navy is really effective.
And that's it, that's my super simple, super pared back card & you know, for someone who often goes overboard with layers & rhinestones, I absolutely love it! I hope you all do, too :P
