Traveler's Card

Hi Everyone, I decided to try something new and  I have used the "Traveler Stamp Set" and the "Hardwood Stamp Set" in the background. I think it makes a great male card as well. Those that know me will see I am stepping out of my comfort zone to try something different. I hope you like my card as I was pleased with the end result.

With this card I stamped the images on Vellum and layered them on the cardstock for more depth, I just love the vintage brads especially for a male card they just add some bling on a male card that sometimes I find hard when doing a male card.

Products used for this card:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron
Specialty Paper: Vellum
Stamp Sets: Traveler, Hardwood
Stamp Pads: Sahara Sand, Stazon
Embossing Folder: Woodgrain
Trim: Gold Metallic Thread, Gold Sequin
Brads: Antique Brads

Crazy Crafters June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crazy Crafter's June Blog Hop

Hi Everyone, this month's theme for our blog is "Favourite New Stampin' Up!® Products"!

You have come to Angela Westland through the blog hop, the list of ladies who are participating in this blog hop are at the bottom of this post, I'm sure they would love you to visit their blog and leave them a comment. I would love you to join my blog and become one of my lovely followers.

This was so hard as there are so many fabulous new products in the new Stampin' Up! Catalogue that was released early this month. I have had a lot of fun creating with all the beautiful products. One of my favorite products is the new dotted lace range, I just love how it is so easy to work with! It is a breeze to make a beautiful lace bow with the new range, I hope you visit my STORE and check out all the wonderful new products, please leave a comment if you have any queries.

My Card

I have used a few different techniques creating this card but the utube tutorial under the Utube Tutorials Tab at the top of my page will give you a general idea where I got my ideas from. It is number 36! on the Tutorial list by Handcrafting with Heather!

I decided to use the "Perfect Peacock" stamp for this blog hop, to color the Peacock I firstly created the background of the Peacock by using my acrylic block, stamp pads and some watercolor paper to make the back ground which I stamped my Peacock with Stazon Ink. Then I added some more color to the Peacock by using my ink pads and my aqua painters, cut out my peacock. I then stamped the entire Peacock image with Versamark Ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder and set it aside.

I then stamped a second image of the Peacock with Versamark Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock and embossed it in Gold, I then used my Stampin' Write markers to color the leaves and flowers. I then glued down the peacock I had previously cut out over the Gold Peacock. I also stamped some extra flowers from the peacock stamp, cut them out and using my dauber inked the edges of the flowers before applying them to the card. I have also used the newly released In Color Stamp Pads, the gorgeous Watermelon Dotted Lace, Paper Doily and the Oval Framelits.

Cardstock: Delightful Dijon, Whisper White and Shimmery White
Stamp Set: Perfect Peacock, Petite Pairs
Stamp Pads: Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron, Versamark
Stampin' Write Markers: Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron

Fun Background Card

I was inspired by one of  Keenan Creations Tutorials on this fun background using your Big Shot, Embossing Folder with some Inks and Embossing Powder.

I warn you it can get messy, it is best to take your time with this one ladies and just keep adding color till you are happy with the result, you will be amazed at the finish it will give you once you have added your embossing powder and heat set it with your heat tool. I just love this fun technique.
