I Believe (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello
I thought I would share a collection of cards which appear in the July/Aug/Sept issue of The Stampers’ Sampler.
The cards were inspired by beautiful Artist paper (which appeared in a Somerset Studio) designed by Rachel Emilie Jackson, I’ve no doubt that many of you will recognise her name, an inspirational artist.  I kept that Artist paper safe until last year, when I decided to stop saving items “for a rainy day”.
Imagine my joy when I made one collection and it appeared in The Stampers’ Sampler and another collection submitted and published in Somerset Life (will share another time).
The Stampers’ Sampler focuses on stamping so I added touches of stamping to each card.  I wanted the overall appearance to be one where my backgrounds, with Frescos, would blend with the Artist paper, fortunately, Rachel’s palette is one that I am drawn to and the chalky appearance of the Frescos worked a treat with the quality of the Artist paper.

The cards are quite small in dimension, this was dictated by the Artist paper, in me selecting as many elements from the paper as possible, so that I could make as many cards as possible.

The  Frescos, the colours and chalky texture allowed me to carry the paint onto the Artist paper and integrated so well with the Artist paper.

This was my favourite colour palette, soft blue with the warm buff, peachy tone.

Embellishments were kept to a minimum, a vintage button and the tiniest scraps of crochet lace or jute ribbon

What do you believe in?
Whatever it is, I hope you have it in abundance in your life.

Thank you, always, for your visits. Life is a bit of a strain at the moment with personal matters keeping me away from on-line activity but trying to keep my That’s Crafty DT commitment fulfilled and fortunately, I had a few projects made for such times.

Craft Stamper

Hello
I have overlooked sharing peeks at projects I have in Craft Stamper (May issue).
With the brief of making cards to a vintage/shabby style with colours of Springtime, I had fun working with Character Constructions stamps.  Catherine Moore generously offered one stamp set for a lucky winner – there is still time to enter the Giveaway!

The second card in my article features PaperArtsy, from the recently released ScrapCosy (ESC) which seemed a perfect fit for the brief and was a lovely contrast to the whimsical image on the first card, with the ESC flower being more traditional in style.

In this same issue, I also appear as my role with the That’s Crafty DT, as we had the wonderful challenge of working with a That’s Crafty Splat, for the Craft Stamper 3D Challenge.  I had fun incorporating PaperArtsy stamps and RELICS & ARTIFACTS onto the Splat. I’ve always thought that R&As and That’s Crafty Alterable Surfaces are perfect for each other.

Thank you to Trish Latimer and for the wonderful companies who created such fabulous products to play with.
