Stunning Starry Skies by Heather Telford

Hi Crafty Friends,

It is always a special day when we get to feature one of Heather Telford‘s card designs. And, we are especially lucky today since she is sharing two gorgeous designs using the Concord & 9th Star Turnabout stamp and die set.

To create these beautiful designs, she is using the new watercolors from Altenew for the dreamy blue sky and black cardstock for the striking midnight sky. I am not sure which I like best, do you?

The one thing I do know though, you can never go wrong with any of Heather’s creations! Be sure to pop over to her blog… but only after you have soaked in all the beauty of these new designs here.

Brilliant Blooms, Two Ways and Two Color Schemes

Hi Everyone,

I started writing this post and found the explanation was getting too wordy, so… the next best thing I could think of was to create a video to explain all the ins and outs. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel.

The two card designs were made using the Brilliant Blooms stamp and die set by My Favorite Things. I have used this set before (click here to check it out) and was impressed by the versatility and beauty of the simple blossoms so decided to give it another look.

In these cards, I created a background by stamping and embossing the flowers, cut out the center and add a gracious sentiment from the Paper Artsy Eclectica3 stamp set. The left-over cut-out center was then used to create the second card.

Take a look at the video of the two different card design styles and colors.
