Welcome to the very first informal blog hop for the International Ambassadors! We got together (online of course) and decided to have a blog hop, just for fun....
It is a great way for you to get to know who we are and to see what we can do....
And now....time for Blog Hopping!
If you came here from Linda's Blog - you are in the right place!
We have chosen to use Dies from the Victorian Range - these Dies are divine and it is so much fun to create with them, as you will see as you stop by each Designers Blog:
For the Victorian blog hop I made you a classical card using the Victorian template set called "Delightful Foliage".
Fold white cardstock size 11"x7½" to a card size 5.5"x7,5".
Stamp sentiment exactly onto the centre of the card base.
Cut a piece of blue patterned paper to size 5" x7".
Put Delightful Foliage #2 (with #1 being the smallest die-template) onto the centre of the blue rectangle and drawn a line along the innerside of the die-template with a pencil. Carefully cut out the centre along the pencil lines.
Glue blue frame upon cardbase using 3D foam squares.
Stack Matting Basics B #7 and Delightful Foliage #2and cut/emboss using white cardstock.
Leave the dies-templates on the paper and stencil using brown ink and a dauber. remove the die-templates and glue upon cardbase using 3D foam squares.
Embellish the card using mulberry flowers , ribbon and self-adhesive Pearls.

Hallo lieve allemaal,
Vandaag heb ik voor jullie mijn allereerste Valentijns kaart voor dit jaar.
Ja, want over een maand is het alweer zover: Valijntijns dag!
Voor mijn kaart heb ik 1 van de allernieuwste Quietfire Design stempels en ook 1 van de allernieuwste Spellbinders stanzen gebruikt.
Hello everyone, Today I have for you my very first Valentine's card this year. Yes...only about a month to go before it's Valnetine's Day! For my card I used one of the very latest Quietfire stamps and also one of the newest Spellbinders dies.
De kaart is niet in traditioneel rood, maar in vintage pastel kleuren.
Door randjes van verschillende lagen te bewerken met een distresser en distress ink, in combinatie met een klassiek frame, krijgt het kaartje een vintage uitstraling...
Een complete werkbeschrijving kun je terugvinden op de Quietfire blog (klik daarvoor hier).
The card is not in traditional red, but in vintage pastel colors. The edges of the different layers are altered (using a distresser tool) and in combination with the beautiful classical Spellbinders frame, the crda gets that lovely vintage look... Full instructions on how to make this card are to be found on the Quietfire blog (click here)
Hallo lieve allemaal, Op deze stormachtige dag maar eens een vrolijk en fleurig kaartje gemaakt. Voor deze kaart is maar 1 set stanzen gebruikt: Spellbinders® 5x7 Elegant Labels Four.
De roze middenlaag is uitgeknipt met een schaar (de mal heb ik dus als tekenmal voor het uitknippen gebruikt). Voor een extra 3D effect heb ik de verschillende gestanste lagen opgeplakt met foamblokjes. De schattige stempel is van Jenny Johnson, ingekleurd met distress inkt.
Het gebruikte scrappapier is van Papermania.
Hello everyone, Here in Holland we're having storm and rain, so time to cheer up with a happy and bright card! I used only one set of die-templates to make this card: Spellbinders® 5x7 Elegant Labels Four The pink layer was cutr by scissors: I used the die-template as a template by drawing a line on the inside with a pencil and then cut it with scissors. For an extra 3D effect 3D-foam squares were used.
The cute stamp is an oldie by Penny Johnson and colored with Distress ink.
