Let's Craft Together Challenge Blog Hop - Pansy Patch Bundle

August 4, 2023

  Welcome to the first monthly Blog Hop by Let’s Craft Together and thank you for joining us. We are a group of multi-cultural Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators in Australia who have developed a strong friendship though our love of stamping and our admiration of each other’s style of crafting. I am really excited to have been invited to join such a talented group. 
I know you will be inspired by our hops.

Each month one of us sets a challenge that we use for the months blog hop. This month’s challenge is a Tic Tac Toe theme which was created by Tracy Held and is shown below.

I chose Embossing, Designer Series Paper & Flowers! 

I didn't emboss with our embossing folders but I used a dies that had an embossing in it. If you look closely you can see the petals have embossing lines through them to make it more 3D and realistic. I also embossed the sentiment using out embossing powders, which I love as they give a crisp clean finish to any card!

Designer Series Paper
I decided to do a square card for something different and this allowed me to angle the designer series paper to display the front and the back of this amazing paper. I used the Earthen Elegance Paper and featured some of my favourite colours. Pretty Peacock and Moody Mauve. It is a busy paper so you can't add to much on top but the simple pansies compliment it well. 

When the Pansy Patch stamp set first came out I struggled to make pretty cards with a little unique look to them but now they are one of my go to stamps! They are so versatile and elegant and the dies cut out solid and layered options. I went with the solid option with the embossed look and blended them from middle out to create a realistic colour palate for the flower.

I really enjoyed this months challenge and cannot wait to see what everyone else has created, so be sure to hop along and check out all of the Talent we have here in Australia!

    1. Thanks Mandy I enjoyed stepping out of the box with this one.

  5. Love how you used the challenge, such a striking card!

  6. I agree with other's comments, the flowers are the start. You have done a beutiful job softly sponging the flowers,leaves and the buds to bring out the texture created by the dies.

  7. your pansies are extraordinary - such gorgeous soft blending which highlights the texture stunningly! Gorgeous card.

  8. Thank you Julia, I'm glad I tried this technique.
