Hi crafty friends, Thanks so much for popping in. I am Cheryl Espie and the face behind Linkcrafty Cards.
I am thrilled to be joining Pigment Craft Co for the month of October as a guest designer, and help showcase this delightful and innovative festive release. Today, I will be using a combination of products including the FaLaLaLa Stamp Set, the Winter Sprigs Stamp & Die Set and a sentiment from the Vintage Merry Christmas Stamp Set.
All these beauties will be brought together to create a FaLaLaLa Festive Slimline card. One of the reasons I chose this design was to demonstrate how your small die cuts can be utilized to create a dimensional background for your card, whatever size card base you use.
I die cut several sprigs from the Winter Sprigs Die set. With these, I then glued sprig die cuts randomly over the card base. Following this, it was time to stamp with the lush inks by Pigment Craft Co. Using the colours Sage & Terracotta, I stamped three sets of leaves and berries and adhered them on top of the background. For the FaLaLaLa sentiment I heat embossed this in gold, and added it to the card. I added the ‘With Love’ below to bring in a more personal touch. To finish, gold bling was a must! It’s a great finishing touch to bring the whole card colour combos together.
As an added extra, I filmed the process and I have added it to my Linkcrafty Cards You Tube channel. I hope I have inspired you to create with this beautiful release. Until next time…bye for now!

Hi! I'm Cheryl Espie! I am the face behind Linkcrafty Cards!
I live in Calgary, Canada but I was born in the UK. I live with my supportive husband and my two fur babies, Molly & Otis!
I have been a creative spirit from as long as I can remember, but my cardmaking really took off a couple of years after arriving in Canada in 2006. My craft room and my crafting stash has grown into what it is today, and I love every bit of it!
I love the crafting community and the positive vibe it brings to my life. I hope that what I share, inspires others to also create something for themselves.
I’m so excited to be a guest designer for Pigment Craft Co for this month!
Thanks For Joining Us.
We hope these beautiful projects help you embark on a creative journey!
