Creativity Combined Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us today for the Creativity Combined Blog Hop.  When Christine Bettany suggested doing a Thank You blog hop for Sarah Reynolds, who helped a group of us set up our own websites, we all jumped at the chance.

The ladies taking part today would all like to say a massive Thank You to Sarah for all the help and advice she has given us.



Sarah you are amazing, you have always been there when I needed some help and you work so hard in the background keeping Lady Dee Crafts up and running.  I never thought I would have my own website, you are a star and I can’t thank you enough. Dee x 

I love to make people happy and I know a handmade card will make the recipient smile. When I sat down to make the card for Sarah I thought the large Rose in the Graceful Garden stamp set would be perfect.  I stamped the Rose onto Thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with my alcohol markers.



I used a sponge brayer and Crushed Curry ink to get the Ombré background.  I embossed the background with the diamond pattern mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and added clear Wink of Stella to some of the diamond shapes.

The Thank You sentiment is from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.  I die-cut this and sponged around the edges with Crushed Curry ink.

I hope you have a lovely Sunday.

Have yourself some crafting fun.

The products used to make todays project are listed below.

Product List


*When designing a project or when I CASE a project I always use my cheap cardstock to make a prototype before making it with my Stampin’ Up! cardstock.   I do check the measurements I add to my blog posts but when typing lots of measurements mistakes can be made.  When making any project I recommend making it first with cheap cardstock before using your best cardstock.*
