French Foliage

Well as promised I have returned to share another new card with you.

I have just prepared a new emboss resist class for my Monday night ladies and I am using a set which is just perfect for this technique. 

The class came about as a result of my showing these ladies the beautiful calendar that was made for me by the very talented Carole you can see her blog HERE 

One of the months featured an emboss resist sample and it reminded my ladies that we had not used this technique in ages so a re-visit to French Foliage AND Resist embossing was called for ! Using Carol's original Rich Razzleberry as a starting point, I have spend this morning playing with ideas and creating the class using Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry. The class features Triple Stamping, Emboss Resist and Joseph's Coat (or emerging colour technique) The cards are striking in these colours to say the least but I have no doubt my ladies will love the combination. Thank you so much Carole for the inspiration and also for my lovely original gift.

Well of course once I had played with the French Foliage set I remembered just how much I like these images so I got sidetracked into blog hopping looking at creations by other talented stampers. I came across a lovely CARD by an Australian Demonstrator called Christine Blain. Her colour combination of Pear Pizzazz, Island Indigo and River Rock just blew me away. I needed a few simple Men's cards so out came the ink pads to go with the stamp set and this little card was created in minutes. I am also going to make a note of that particular colour combo and use it with other stamp sets because it is truly gorgeous.
So thank you Christine for giving me a new colour idea to work with.
