Elements of Style

Hello there! Back with more craftiness this morning for you! This is another card from Tuesday night and another CASED card. This time it was cased from my wonderful downline Amanda, from a gorgeous swap she gave us at Team Training back in October.

We used a cool technique on this one, by swiping the embossing folder with the Crumb Cake ink pad and running it through the Big Shot. The embossing folder we used was the Petals a Plenty. I love the effect this gives the card. The stamp set is a new one to me, I earned it FREE! Love how many freebies you get chance to earn with this wonderful company!

The colours on this card are Riding Hood Red, Island Indigo and Crumb Cake. We also used another technique called Rock and Roll on the bird stamp. The crochet trim was inked with the Crumb Cake ink pad to give it an aged effect and the sentiment is from Petite Pairs.

A new member of the Kettlewell Family arrived yesterday!!!! My new Stampin' Up Trimmer!!! Its amazing and we already couldnt imagine out lives before it arrived!!! Mother and Baby doing well!!!!!

If you would like your own Trimmer for Christmas please message me before Saturday and I can arrange this for you!
