Club Scrap Hydrangeas Blog Hop

Welcome to the April Club Scrap Hydrangeas Blog Hop!  If you got here from Annette's page then you are on the right page.  If you got here some other way and would like to start at the beginning of the hop, go to the Club Scrap Blog HERE.  I subscribe to the Club Scrap Digital kit and the Club Stamp Kit.  First I made a card from the Club Stamp Kit.


These stamps beg to be heat embossed.  I heat embossed them with Ranger Super Fine Gold EP.  Then I colored them with Distressed Markers in Dusty Concord and Mowed Lawn.  I used the gorgeous text weight DP for the background.  The bow was from my stash already tied  so I decided to use it (because I have a hard time tying a bow (LOL). The kit does come with some beautiful yellow and green striped sheer ribbon.  Here is a close up of the shiny embossing.



I was really happy when I got the digital kit because I have been working on Scrapbooking my daughter's wedding photos.  The colors in the Hydreangeas kit goes so well with her wedding colors.  Here's a page I did with the digital kit.  For the digital kits I use the Panstoria Artisan Software to make my digital pages. 


Now head on over to Wendy's Blog next.  If you want to start at the beginning of the hop go HERE.  

Happy Crafting!
Donna

  17. Great call embossing those flowers, they look fantastic! I find it hard to color flowers, I'm no coloring expert, and I will definitely try heat embossing too. The background DP matches the image and colors perfectly. Gorgeous ribbon too!

  19. Very lovely! How do you store these downloads? and saving them. i use a Linux/Fedora system. I guess that once I downloaded them I am afraid that I will lose them some how...technology and all. And my printer isn't the greatest. What type of techniques can you do with digis that are similar to rubberstamping? thanks, -con

    1. I print them at a commercial sevice (heritage makers) so all can enjoy. Panstoria also has a printing service. I also use a backup service for my computer. The Panstoria software has a rubberstamping app that gives the look of a rubber stamp.
