Just popping in briefly to let you know that I have a project + video tutorial on the Sizzix Blog today!
As you may know, I’ve been enamoured with white as of late. In this project, as in the mini album I recently shared here, resisting the urge to add lots of color really helps draw strong attention to variety in texture. Folks, another plus when working monochromatic is that it’s nearly impossible not to end up with a project that sings with a simple elegance. Great for fast holiday cards, and I am so happy to hear from some of you that the monochromatic inspirations are fueling your own holiday cardmaking.
I must confess, since making the video for this project, I have gotten hooked on crafting these pansies in a whole range of different cardstocks. They are just so precious – in my opinion, even one would add just that perfect something to projects in a wide range of styles. In fact, I just made some today to embellish, believe it or not, a slightly steampunky altered box. The pansies are a new fave and this embossing folder is also just TO DIE FOR!
For more detail shots on the project above, supplies, and the video tutorial, please visit me at the Sizzix Blog today! Oh, and you will also see another project in the video that uses the same dies for a completely different effect!
