Thanks and good luck to all of you. We can't wait to see all your amazing entries.
I made a couple cards using the new You Move Me Die-namics and Stamp Set and used My Favorite Felt to add a touch of texture.
I've got a sample for a Touch of Texture too! I've created a little paper crafted home decor using this month's Perfect Pinwheel Die-namics, my texture touch is that I pulled out my crimper, it's been used on small strips of patterned paper which I then curled for filler.
I also ran the woodgrain patterned paper through my diecutting machine with a houndstooth embossing folder, I LOVE adding a little bit of texture to my patterned papers, it totally changes the look!
I have several Touches of Texture on my card, which features the new set, Clearly Sentimental about the Journey. I did some distressing and piercing, plus I used my paper crimper on the narrow vertical panel. The cork Die-namics Leafy Flourish adds even more texture, plus the NEW Die-namics Large Rolled Rose is very crumpled and distressed, too!
Okay I finally got the time and the inspiration to sit down and make a card for the Guest Designer challenge.... thanks for the challenge ladies!! I tried to get a few different textures into this card ... wish you could feel the pocket to feel the worn edges of the "jeans" .... so hope you enjoy it
haha patty! I'm in under the wire as well I think Nothing like procrastinating My son and nephew just cleaned all the ashes out of the fireplace while I was busy making this card! brats!!!!
Texture I used:
real bits of a birdsnest for the fire, real stick for the mallow, liquid applique on freds mallow, cork dienamic, glitter, distressing, sewing, crystal effects on his nose, twine, buttons, wood for the sentiment sign..... mftgdt july1.jpgmftgdt july3.jpg
