Crumb Cake Merriest Moments

By | 31/12/2021

This card was cased from Canadian Demonstrator Diana Langman.

It uses a Crumb Cake cardbase and an embossed piece of vellum cardstock using the hybrid embossing folder. For my card I have added a small piece of Early Espresso to frame the Very Vanilla die cut with a Crumb Cake stamped greeting.

As adhesive will show behind the vellum, I have only applied it behind the central rectangular frame so that is concealed by the layers.

I didn’t have the dies for the poinsettia as Diana has, so I used what I have, which in this case were the dies that come with the Merriest Moments matching dies. The pearls just finish it off nicely.

I just love the subtle nature of this card. A refreshing change from the traditional red and green.

Merriest Moments

By | 27/12/2021

Yeah! I’m back posting and hope to make it a more regular thing. I’ve struggled photography and good lighting. However, this Christmas I was given a mini light box for photography. So, while I still have a lot to learn, the best way is by actually doing. So here goes!

I know this is a bit late for Christmas however, the stampset and dies are still available until 3 January 2022, and will be carrying over into an up coming catalogue. So if I’m able to tempt you with this set, you can still get it.

After seeing a post and video from Ruth Trice, I thought I’d have a go at stamping a page for a one sheet wonder collection using the Merriest Moments stamp set (this can also come with matching dies and a hybrid embossing folder). I loved the colours Ruth used so I copied her stamping and made up a couple of cards the same as Ruth’s. The colours used are Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Pear Pizazz. I just love the non traditional yet still appropriate colours.

Then looking at the paper I realised just how lovely it was and rather than cut it into small pieces, I decided to feature the paper by itself. So I decided to keep it simple, by matting and mounting the paper onto a card base and, using just what I had to hand (some retired products), I added modest embellishments and greetings and let the stamped paper do the talking.

Isn’t the paper just beautiful.

Once I started, I kept going and going and ended up with a handful of beautiful cards all created from one stamped sheet of cardstock.
