Welcome fellow crafters.
Today I have some really special news to share. I am the Guest designer this week over at MUSE.
I couldn't believe it when I saw the email with the invitation from Ardyth in my inbox.
Once the initial glow had passed, I then had to think of what I should do to inspire you all?
In the end I thought I would do what seems to best reflect my style, CAS with a little DP, diecuts, dry embossing and of course an image coloured in Copics!
So without any further ado here it is, this week's MUSE card.
As it's not far off Valentine's Day I went with the romantic theme of roses using one of my NEBUS stamp bargains from a trip to a store while on holiday in Norfolk last year. Regular readers will know I love a bargain bucket to rifle through! It could equally be a card for an anniversary if you prefer.
This one is a DoCrafts stamp called Forever Love - Rose and of course I used my Copics to colour, matching the rose to the free rose DP by Kaisercraft I got last year with a magazine. I fussy cut them before attaching to the card but not before I cut a heart shape in the top panel using my Little B hearts die and then dry embossed using a Rose folder from Cuttlebug. I stamped the STAMPlorations greeting (Bloom Sketches) in Versafine then heat embossed in detail gold, mounting flat on the top panel and lifting the rose panel up on pads.
I would love to see how you are inspired by my little offering, please take inspiration from where ever you want, it doesn't have to be a Valentine's card, it could be the layout, the theme of roses or just the colourway!
