Happy Friday Friends! Five For Friday is all about sharing 5 links to creative inspiration that you need to check out before you get your crafty groove on for the weekend.
What a busy week here in my studio! I am drawing art for new products and managed to create a little art to share too. In case you missed it, I shared a handmade pincushion that featured a stitchery version of my new Wishing You stamp. I am having a ton of fun creating little stitchery projects. I have several in my brain that I hope to make and share soon.
OK, on to the inspiration! Today we have some really fun bits of inspiration from the team, a Spellblogger, and me!
Cathie Cowles: How fun is this card? I love how Cathie did her letters in black, it really makes the red of the ladybug jump right out! Find out more about Cathie’s card on her blog: Wishing You Love & Luck Card.
Kathy Clement: Kathy always packs lots of details into her project. The closer you look, the more you will see! I loved that when I looked super close at this one, I saw that there really were sprinkles on top of the ice cream cone! So fun! Check out all the details on Kathy’s blog: Sprinkles on Top Card.
Lin Brandyberry: Ohhh, look super close here… Lin used a different pattern of paper for each little ray on the sun. How super cute is that?! And I am totally in awe, she paper pieced the word Shine too. Check out more details on Lin’s blog: Shine Card.
Sandi Nagel: This week I want to introduce you to Sandi Nagel. Sandi is one of the Spellbinders Spellbloggers. Sandi shared a really fun mini album on her blog featuring my Paper Bag Envelope die that I fell in love with! I kept thinking to myself that the Paper Bag Envelope would make a great mini book. Unknown to Sandi, she made exactly what I had imagined and dressed it beautifully! You can see more of the book on her blog: Paper Bag Envelope Book.
While you are at Sandi’s blog, be sure to check out this project too, showing how to create fun little shaker pockets using the Window Mini Pocket die. Find it here: Shaker Pocket Tutorial
Finally, I have a tutorial to share! This week I shared a tutorial on the Spellbinders blog showing how to create a letterpress style background using embossing folders. It is a simple technique that adds a ton of wow to your card backgrounds. Find it on the Spellbinders blog: Easy Letterpress Style Backgrounds with Embossing Folders.
