The VERY FIRST Creative Crew Gallery ~ January 2011


There are 4 main themes for this months' gallery:

*Mini Occasions Catalog Focus* For these projects, I used the new 'Baby Blossoms' set which is just SO versatile and easy to use. I love the vintage 'shabby chic' feel of this set. It was a lot of fun putting this card and box together.

*Designer Paper/Colour Combo Focus* Love Letter DSP/Vanilla, Black, Riding Hood Red. I used the new 'Valentine Defined' stamp set for this project. The definition 'Valentine' was embellished by stamping it twice, the main image was in Basic Black, but the 2nd time I stamped in Riding Hood Red and cut out key words and popped them up on dimensionals to give the card some visual interest.

This card is made in the CAS style. The black ribbon was awful to photograph, for which I apologise, but it does look good IRL! A lot of people have a hard time with CAS cards, but the main idea is to stop, stop, stop and don't over embellish. I would say that my most comfortable stamping style is this one. The main image on this card was actually stamped THREE times and layered. I'll add an extra pic to show you how great it looks popped up.


*Holiday Focus (Valentine's Day)* I am so happy with this card. I was inspired by a Christmas Card I received from a friend in England which had a really unique 'bendy fold'. I couldn't wait to translate it into a Stampin' Up card and LOVE how this turned out. I do have a tutorial if you'd like to contact me for a copy :)

*SB (Scrapbooking) Focus* I'm not much of a scrapbooker, but I did love these pics of my daughter Sarah taken a few days before Christmas. An inexpensive frame and some embellishing using the new Springtime Vintage fabrics and seam binding ribbons and hey presto, a scrapbook inspired photo frame which is going over to my parents in England for their kitchen wall. Like all proud grandparents, there is a section of wall COVERED in photos of their 2 grand- daughters!

I hope you've enjoyed a little peak into my projects for the Creative Crew gallery. If you'd like to play along, then please use the keywords as follows:

Mini Catalog Projects : CCREW01111CF
DSP/Colour Focus : CCREW0111DF
Valentine Focus : CCREW0111HF
Scrapbooking Focus : CCREW0111SF

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Love this card could I get directions for this. It is awesome. choiniere511@msn.com

Emma F said...

Hi Becky ~ you can e:mail me at ladyandthestamp@gmail.com and I'll send through the tutorial. Yes, the card is flat, once the recipient receives it, they just put the notches into the slots to make the bendy folds! Clear as mud, I know :)
