Today is the first day of CHA in Anaheim and Kim ~ owner of Emerald Creek Craft Supplies ~ and Nicole of Nicole Wright Designs are at the big show showing off their exciting new products.
Emerald Creek Craft Supplies has two brand new set of stamps designed by
Nicole Wright under the brand Nicole Wright Designs.
One is called Fallen Blossom and is a set of 5 cling stamps. The other one (used on my card)
is called Upstream and comes in a set of 6. They are beautiful!
I was inspired to make a bendy fold card using the Koi images.
There are lots of tutorials for Bendy Fold Cards on Pinterest ~ I used this one
from SplitCoast Stampers.
My card base was cut from 100lb cardstock from Emerald Creek in white then covered in a pattern paper I had in my stash. Once my card was assembled it was time to start decorating with my stamped images and accessories
My Koi images are all stamped on cold press watercolour paper and coloured with a small paint brush and Distress Markers.
I added a few of the small Koi images to my card as well ~ a few hiding away in the greenery.
The greenery is diecut from the Garden Greens die from Sizzix and then stained with Peeled Paint.
The sentiment is from the Stuff To Say set from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection.
I first stained a piece of watercolour paper with Abandoned Coral before stamping my sentiment with Black Archival Ink.
I added some gold foil along the edges to add a bit of interest.
I just love all the layers created when the card is slotted together.
Here is my finished card ~
