Crafter's Castle Challenge · Taylormadecards4u Inspiration Team

An English Garden Par-tea!

Hi there it’s Wendy!  Today’s post is part of the Taylormadecards4u inspiration team monthly video hop featuring the new digital kit An English Garden!

TMC4u is also the sponsor for the Crafter’s Castle Challenge blog and the winner for this month’s challenge will win the featured kit, so be sure to link up to the challenge for your chance to win.

The first thing I thought of when I saw images in the kit was a garden tea party. I enjoy making projects that I will actually use and I was inspired when I saw the tea dispenser project from my crafty friend Karen on the Club Scrap blog. I just had to make one for myself! Click here for a set of printable instructions.

New to 2020, the Taylormadecards4u Inspiration Team will be a video team. I started filming and editing videos when my youngest son was in high school in 2015. I was a sports photographer for the local paper and branched out to creating videos during Jake’s senior year. Click HERE for my tribute to all the people who helped make the magic happen! A lot goes into creating a video. It is many hours of planning, filming, reviewing footage, editing, splicing, adding digital artwork, photographing stills, compiling footage, final editing, uploading footage, adding links…the list goes on and on. It isn’t easy. However, I love a good challenge and truly love what I do. If you like what you see, subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss future videos!

I incorporated some new techniques into my project and the Ghost ink 2.0 stamped on Rinea foil is one of my new favorites. The ink removes the color from the Rinea foiled paper to create a reverse stamping effect. This technique is like magic! (All available supplies used in this project will be listed at the end of this post.)

I had some scraps left over and made a few mini cards to showcase some of the other digital images in the kit.

I printed an extra quad print from the kit and trimmed to create two of the card bases. I trimmed the other pieces to use as panel accents. I printed the images on light blue colored card stock and was so pleased with the effect! Stickles is my “go to” for a little extra sparkle and I added some to accent the butterflies. This little set of cards was quick and easy to create!

I encourage you to check out what the rest of the Inspiration Team has created and join us on the Crafter’s Castle Challenge blog for a chance to win this gorgeous digital kit!
