Welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop where this month it’s all about texture.
Welcome to this month’s blog hop, where we are showcasing Embossing Folders, Embossing Pastes or anything that brings about some texture to our projects. You may have already hopped over from Jeanna’s blog and seen her amazing inspiration. I hope to inspire you further.
Whilst flicking back through some old Stampin’ Up! catalogues, I came across a colour combination that gave inspiration for my cards. I loved the vibrancy with the calming Crumb Cake, linked with our Quiet Meadow Bundle.
This first card brought texture from the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder that I used with the Crumb Cake matting layer. You can create an aged feel by randomly stamping splatters and text on the cardbase layer. I followed this through onto the Bumblebee strip that has ripped edges to again bring texture in.
Stamping the flower onto Crumb Cake cardstock with Early Espresso, I added colour by overlaying onto White Chalk Marker. Blender Pens are perfect for picking up ink onto the nib to use as a colouring tool.
Textured Cardstock and Die Cuts
My second card saw me literally crumple up two layers of cardstock before axing up with Ink and adding a Die Cut element. The Designer Series Paper, In Good Taste offers patterned papers that give texture all of their own.
Layers and Ripping
You can easily create texture by adding movement and layers, as shown on my final card. Using the Tailor Made Tags, I cleverly created a wider tag to take the flower image with space. This was sponged up and aged a little with stamped speckles.
The sentiment tag in itself has added texture at the end with the scalloped edge sitting over yet more crumpled and wripped cardstock. Ribbon and draping threads help add movement.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating this trio of cards and adding texture, movement and depth with inks and Embossing Folders.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my take on Texture today and I hope you’ll now hop on over to see what Antoinette has to share.
