Creating Kindness – Designer’s Choice – Joy to the World. This month the amazing Jan Clothier is our Guest Designer. Jan is based in New Zealand and is one of the 2020 Artisan Design Team, so you will want to visit her website for LOTS of inspiration.
This month we have no actual theme for the Blog Hop, which can be both good and bad. Sometimes being limited can help to focus the mind and speed up the Design process. The inspiration for my project today has come from a card I spotted on Instagram, shared by Waffle Flower Crafts HERE. I loved the idea of heat embossing bands of Gold and then adding colour. Here is my version of the idea.
I used Shimmery White Card and Pattern Play Stamps for my Heat Embossing, adding Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight and Old Olive Inks. These are the colours that are in the Trimming the Tow Designer Series Paper, so I knew they would work together.
I wanted to keep the sentiment bold and unfussy, so pulled the Peace & Joy Bundle to die cut the ‘Joy’ and stamp ‘To the World’ in black on Pool Party.
Simple and easy to recreate. The only time consuming element is leaving the inks to dry fully before trimming the card down to size, ready to be added to your card front. Basic Black is the perfect background for both the card and the sentiments.
