Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was a busy one here again with a lovely day out to a craft fair with my mum (purchased waaaaaaay more than I originally intended to buy - just need to find time to play with it all now!)
Today's card is part of what has been a blast with Chaitali Narla (she's the sweetest!). If you didn't know already, Chaitali is the brains behind Iron Craft: a weekly feature in which she invites a crafter over (virtually!) to craft with the same ingredients and see what they come up with.
Well Iron Craft is back for season 2 and I was beyond flattered to be asked if I would join in. For the common ingredient in our creations, we decided upon a set a designed for Clearly Besotted Stamps - Post It: Love.
- I love this notepad edge die from Clearly Besotted Stamps. When using it to add a decorative edge, I like to measure and make sure the pattern ends evenly on each end. I simply trim my panel first, then secure the die to the top with washi tape to make sure it stays put.
- I paper-pieced the postage stamp of the design using a solid grey paper from the same pack the grey and white paper came from. Mix and Match paper from the same collection of patterned paper to help keep things coordinated.
- Stamp and emboss the heart first before stamping the postage stamp frame around it and cutting it out. This ensure that embossing powder doesn't stick to the postage stamp and means you can emboss on a larger piece of paper rather than a tiny piece!
One more key thing about Iron Craft: Season 2 is that Chaitali now features a video interview with each crafter. So there's a video of us having a chat about all things crafty. I'm going to be honest. I babble. A lot. I can't help it! However, it was cool to chat face to face with a fellow crafter. :)
Right, I'm off for a bit but that's not all from me today: I'll be back in a couple of hours with a Top Dog Dies post. Hope you can join me!
