Creative Wednesday double
Firstly its my day to feature for the Creative Expressions Design team the card for this is below. I have used a selection of the new Couture Creations dies and embossing folders for today's DT card.
Secondly its day five of my stamp release so the first card is taken from my next new set which is Dogwood flower frame and sentiments. There is a story behind the drawing of this set as the inspiration came form a blouse of Mr ND's mum. I loved the flower on her top so at the table (we were out for a meal at the time) I drew it on a napkin and this set came from that original inspiration. This set is so flexible as not only can the elements be used on their own, the main image has been designed so that it can be easily decoupaged. This is achieved by either cutting the main image or by using the separate elements stamped to stack on top!
This first card is made just by using the foliage element and the smaller of the three dogwood flowers on the set. I made the age by drawing a circle off the edge and stamping around the pencil line.
This second card shows the elements used to make a random background with the main elements stamped, embossed and decoupaged. I coloured the image using the Autumn shades set of drawing inks. A simple card but I feel that that's the best way too show off the ease of use of this stamp set.
Finally here is my DT card for this week, I hope Creative Expressions don't mind me posting this at the end but I really wanted to get all my sets of stamps out there before my Shows on Saturday as I feel its important for all my blog family too see them first!
