Love Letter - done!

I finished my Love Letter kit today!


I started by attaching the rose gold overlay to the chipboard base, then assembled the succulents and flowers, and assembling it all into a finished letter. You'll need a quilling tool, liquid glass, and adhesive runner for assembly. Decorate with pearls, sparkles, or gems!

Tools for assembly.
That's me! Scissors helped with placement of the letters.
Flowers were sponged with different inks.
Nearly done assembling the flowers.
Creased petals added dimension to this flower.

Love Letters are available January 1-31 2018, while supplies last. Get yours today!

AHSC 247 + Chelsea Gardens


This has been a crazy fortnight full of image sorting, editing, resizing, printing, sorting again, and scrapbooking. Check out what we did at Camp here!
It's been very nice to sit down at home and get back into cardmaking. Bring on the sketch challenge for AHSC #247!

My order arrived on Monday and I couldn't wait to crack into my new Chelsea Gardens papers! I decided to pair the paper packet and coordinating cardstocks with two stampsets and added in some purple to liven it up.
I stamped the flowers in Archival Black ink before using my Clear Shimmer Brush and three different inks to paint them in. Using archival black means I can paint over it without runs or bleeding.
I squished my inkpads a few times to get ink on the lids. I used my shimmer brush to pick up this ink and then color in my flowers and stems. Using the shimmer brush leaves a subtle sparkle in the finished design.

To make this card, I used these materials. Trimmer, Versamat, Bone Folder, Stamping Starter Kit, Adhesive Runner, White Card Value Pack, Chelsea Gardens Paper Packet and Coordinating Cardstock, Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking Thin Cuts Bundle, Many Congratulations and Angel Policy Stampsets, White Daisy Exclusive Cardstock, Clear Shimmer Brush, Glacier Sweet Leaf Eggplant and Archival Black Exclusive Inks.

We've chosen to feature the Bloom & Grow January stamp of the month for our creative inspiration.
With 15 different images to stamp, this set is going to be wildy popular in my stash. I created a simple stamped matted card for my in-law's 40th wedding anniversary. (Yes, their 40th!) They're both keen gardeners so this stamp was perfect to use!



To make this, I used the following products. Click through to purchase or contact your consultant! Trimmer, Versamat, Bone Folder, Stamping Starter Kit, Adhesive Runner, White Card Value Pack, Bloom & Grow and Let Me Show You How Stampsets, Bashful and White Daisy Exclusive Cardstocks, Black & White Dots, Bashful Sweet Leaf Charcoal and Toffee Exclusive Inks.

AHSC #245


Alrighty! New year, new creations. Bring on the sketch challenge for AHSC #245!


I whipped this little thank you card up for my newest customer.
She's purchased from me a handful of times since November and inside is a little gift. :) I inked up my heart stamp and dragged it across the inkpad to get the streaky effect. It adds a nice touch to a simple stamped design. Quick and easy and done in minutes.

To make this card, I used these materials. Trimmer, Versamat, Bone Folder, Stamping Starter Kit, Adhesive Runner, White Card Value Pack, Bloom & Grow and Let Me Show You How Stampsets, Bashful and White Daisy Exclusive Cardstocks, Black & White Dots, Bashful Glacier Sweet Leaf Charcoal and Toffee Exclusive Inks.
