Here’s a fun project featuring our Cling Blossom Beauty plus our Cling Hydrangea Garden Set and the Hydrangea Garden Cutting Dies Set. This card was made previously by our in-house Sample Artist Debi Hammons. I was able to bling it up very quickly with the addition of just a few hydrangea blossoms cut from the gorgeous turquoise metal sheets. I stamped them with StazOn Ultramarine ink, die cut them with our Sizzix Big Shot, cut between the petals with scissors and crumpled them up a bit, then added some of our gorgeous Teal Micro Glitter with a drop of Zip Dry by Beacon Adhesives. Talk about adding a LOT of Dazzle!!

Fran•táge a Friendly Greeting

These beautiful collage stamps we’re featuring this week capture perfectly the Fran•táge style. Vintage, shabby chic, a bit timeworn and well-loved (or neglected), all these elements lend a charm and beauty to items and greetings. We’ve done the work for you with collages of vintage and original images combined with Fran’s flair for composition to create these gorgeous stamps. Each with a small space perfect for the greetings from our Quotes Perfectly Clear Stamps™ sets.

The design team has been sharing all week, and they’ve more to share today! Hope you’ve enjoyed the inspiration and might want to add a couple of these images to your collection!

Kristine Reynolds made this gorgeous card without a greeting! So festive and sweet with all the butterflies adding so much texture, and using the Encrusted Jewel Technique on the edges of her focal point!
