Cottage Greetings - You are Amazing!


Thank you so much for popping in! I have been playing around with Stampin' Up!'s new Seasonal Decorative Masks from our new Holiday Catalogue! Today's card is my entry for this week's Global Design Project theme challenge (#gdp055)! The theme... Random Acts of Kindness (RAK)! A tip from me would be to use only a loose piece of note card or paper for your message inside the card, this way the receiver can pass on the card and so also a Random act of Kindness.

A mix of Dapper Denim and Soft Sky makes for a pretty background!

This time I went with Silver accents. I like it with the blue!

My Product List


  • First I tinted Embossing Paste (any brand will do) with Soft Sky and Dapper Denim. I only mixed the colours in lightly - this way getting colour variations. After working the paste with a small spatula over the mask (onto watercolour paper) I left it overnight to dry. I also added some Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy watercolour wash to Watercolor Paper to dry overnight 9these will be used for my die cut pieces).
  • White heat embossed words from the Love & Affection stamp set adds more interest to my die cut pieces.
  • To finish of my card I inserted frayed spirals of a tiny scraps of Burlap Ribbon that was lying around on my still messy workspace.
In between preparing for my upcoming Stamp-a-Stack for Christmas (on the 11th of October '16) this card was a breath of fresh air! Let me know what you think! 

Remember the 1st of October is World Card Making Day and we will be celebrating with a number of Blog Hops all through the day! Only current Stampin' Up! products will be used and crafters from all over the world will be taking part! If you don't want to miss out follow me via e-mail! 

I hope to see you next time!
