Fancy folds and Chocolate Baroque DT shares


Morning Peeps, this weeks Allsorts theme is hosted by Mervi who would like us to use those 'Fancy Folds'. Our sponsor is Digistamp Boutique and we also have a second prize to give away so double the reason to join in.

Yesterday was my turn to post over at the Chocolate Baroque blog and you will find my shares further down, details of everything I used and how I created each is all detailed over there.

Digistamp Boutique have some lovely new pre-coloured and silhouette stamps and being a real fan of silhouette stamps and Butterflies made two cards, the one at the top uses the Coloured Butterflies and Silhouette Flower sets as well as the sentiment which is from the latter.

I had real fun re-sizing the Butterflies so I could cut out a few as well as the largest one to decoupage. The base stepper card has been created with a TL die set as have the printed elements and after cutting out I added some soft stenciling using a harlequin stencil and DI's.


It's ages since I made an easel card so went for that as my fancy fold on this one and to create the focal element I used both the shadow and silhouette image (many thanks to Marianne for her help doing that) slightly offsetting them and doing exactly the same to create a stopper/border for the base. Some DP, the origin of which I have no idea but it's a nice textured finish, a few pearl embellishments and I used the offcuts from cutting the edges of the stopper with a TL die to create a border across the focal element.


For all of these samples I used the Honey Bee and Fragrant Honeysuckle,  Just Butterflies and Words of Inspiration stamp sets.


Happy weekend everyone, for a change it sounds like we might have lovely weather for the Bank Holiday so enjoy the promised sunshine.
