Kylie's Demonstrator Support Program Blog Hop October 2020



Hello and welcome to my blog. Bruno and Kylie Bertucci's new Demonstrator Support Program began this month, and today I am happy to be taking part in a blog hop with some of the other participants.


My house is in complete chaos while the kitchen is being refurbished - it's contents are strewn around the house and it is really difficult to locate anything. My craft stash has not been disrupted as such, it's just hidden behind layers of things that used to be stored in the kitchen! It has been a pleasure to carve out some time and space to do something a little creative.


My card for this month's hop uses the Arrange a Wreath Bundle. The bundle is a versatile set with elements that lend themselves to use throughout the year. I do love a good production line when I am making cards - once I have decided on a design and chosen my colours I find it very satisfying to replicate it. I enjoy creating the piles of ingredients and turning them into cards, step by step. Each pile is stamped, embossed or die cut to make more piles ready to be assembled into cards!


I have used the In Good Taste paper and an embossed layer to create the background for the die cut wreath. There are plenty of textures in this paper pack ranging from wood grains to tiles and bricks and I chose three different embossing folders to go with them: Brick & Mortar, Pinewood Planks and Woodland.


C
omplementary colours were used for the circles of leaves and they just needed embellished flowers and a thanks to complete the card. So pretty! The really fun bit is writing them out and either hand delivering them or dropping them into the postbox!

I am really happy with my batch of production line cards. Here you can see the three diffrent designs.

  9. Beautiful cards, Karen. The wreath color choices look so striking against the DSP! I can relate to you about your kitchen, as I went through a total renovation last year. All of the chaos will be worth it when you see the final result!
