Stamps and Texture, a reminder

Good afternoon peeps.
Just stopping by to let you know there is still time to enter the March challenge over at STAMPlorations
Here is my mid month inspiration project for you.


You can choose our theme

or you could use this sketch to get your creative juices flowing.


For my card I went with the theme this time, texture.
Embossing always gives texture to a project be it dry or heat, for this I wanted quite a subtle effect so I went with a heat embossed wood grain panel at the top of my card so it did not overwhelm my bunch of fussy cut flowers. Layering the flowers like this also adds texture to my card, as does the baker's twine around the top panel.
For the flowers and leaves I used Frames and Flowers stamped with Memento Rose Bud, Pear Tart and Dandelion, 1st and 2nd generation stamping. The sentiment is from Balloons and Banners.

So that's my project, please check out the main blog for all those Ts and Cs and details of all the other DT's projects as well as this month's fab GDs Swapna and Tanvi

I'd like to join in over at -

Shades of Pink/yellow/green

As You Like It Challenge          CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS

  Favourite style of embossing                               Nature                    
I love both styles of embossing                                                           
so it was difficult to choose one over the other,                                                       
horses for courses!                                                     
This time heat embossing gave me more subtlety.
