Silhouette Scenes Anniversary Card

by Joanne James23. July 2019 21:00

Today I'm sharing a card for the current challenge over at Fusion where they have a great sketch and ombre photo inspiration:

This is a great sketch to showcase one of my favourite stamps in the new Silhouette Scenes stamp set - take a look:

 

I stamped my silhouette image in Rich Razzleberry using my Stamparatus so that I could get a good solid image and used my largest layered oval diecut to cut it out. I overlaid my sentiment and stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it in gold. 

I used some of my retired Painted With Love specialty designer series paper as a backdrop for this image as the photo inspiration reminded me of it - I love those splashed of gold foil.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Painted With Love Hearts Valentine Card and Co-ordinating Fold Flat Top Heart Box

by Joanne James4. February 2018 09:00

It's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of my lovely and talented friend Claire to host this week and she has a rather timely theme challenge for you to work with:

        

February at last and Valentine's is on the way! I have both a card and gift box to share with you this week and hearts were definitely on my mind when I started creating - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Painted With Love - Whilst I used this week's sketch over at As you See It as the inspiration for the layout for my card today, the Painted With Love papers are most certainly the inspiration for my colour scheme. I couldn't wait to use these colourful papers with their gold foil accents on my project, and carried through the shades of purple and pink to the rest of my card design. Here's my colour palette in case you would like to save it for your future inspiration:

 

Hearts A Plenty - Both the teams over at CAS-ual Fridays and SUO Challenges are looking for hearts, hearts and more hearts this week. I've used a combination of hearts in all different sizes stamped from the 'Heart Happiness' stamp set and some diecuts using the Sweet and Sassy Framelit Dies, along with a sprinkling of gold metallic heart shapes for my full heart quota.

Love You - My sentiment is a combination of a 'love' diecut from the Sunshine Wishes Framelits and 'YOU' from the Sale-A-Bration 'Celebrate You Thinlits' - I love being able to play around and take bits and pieces from my collection to create the perfect combination. I also added a little stamping to the inside - this lovely stamp from the 'Petal Passion' set: 

I also created a co-ordinating box with a heart fold flat closure in the same paper, perfect to enclose a Valentine's treat - here it is with my card: 

 

I may well do another blog post on the box - it's very pretty and turned out even better than I hoped it would! Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:
