Fathers Day or Masculine Themed Card Using A Modern Colour Palette.

Hello Crafty Friends, I hope your well, and crafting your way through this difficult. I am trying to work, with some colour theory at the moment. My favorite place to find, colour combinations at the moment is through Pinterest or Pattern Papers in my stash.    So after being inspired I came up with a beautiful masculine combination.     I love pulling inks from my collections and seeing how they work together.     Products   MFT You Float My Boat  https://www.bumbleberrys.co.uk/products/you-float-my-boat?_pos=1&_sid=0a6232f1a&_ss=r MFT All About Dad Die Namic's https://www.bumbleberrys.co.uk/products/die-namics-dad?_pos=1&_sid=92e1e6519&_ss=r   MFT All About Dad Stamps (optional) used for Happy...

Rich & Luxurious embossing - Altenew Dotted Blooms

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. I love to ink blend, but I love it more when it's over heat embossing. Emboss resist is such a fun technique to use with your stamping and if you combine it with metallic embossing powders and dark colours you can get rich & luxurious embossing in no time! What's more, you can easily adapt this to any stamp set you wish, or occasion. And for added variation, why not create an ombre effect with your ink blending.  Written and photos Rich & Luxurious embossing:  To start...

It can be a hard time for everybody and I wanted to make a card that you could send to someone to show them they're in your thoughts.

Partial die-cut heat embossed border card - Pink Fresh Studio - Leafy Decor

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. So who says leaves have to be green?! I thought this Leafy Decor stamp from PinkFresh Studio would be a great stamp for partial die-cutting to create a border card. And I think it turned out quite well. I decided to go for an alternative colour scheme, as I wanted to play with colour more, rather than stay with traditions. Hopefully, you'll think it's a success - for me, it is a success!
