An extra post this week to show you a few cards I was working on yesterday. They brightened up my day! Tim Holtz dog stamps, watercoloured with distress inks.Til next time, stay safe..
I couldn’t resist this cute little Unicorn stamp set by Neat and Tangled. After stamping i coloured with Copic markers, and added flowers and ribbon . The background paper is a from a 6″ pad by lawn fawn. My Puppy Daisy is recovering well from her operation yesterday, she was very sad and sorry for herself last night but seems to have forgotten all about it today and now the challenge is to stop her from jumping up on everything until the wound heals.Meanwhile I have been busy in the kitchen this morning making a big pot of vegetable soup for tea as it is so cold here, and also some lemon butter spread to use up some of our lemon crop. Til tomorrow….
I seem to be jumping all over the place with my photos this month,but I had a lot of random bits and pieces on my desk and had a bit of a push to try and use them up, so this is a card I made with leftover bits and pieces from Kaisercraft Miss Betty collection. Lots of layering, and a bit of fussy cutting, and just a little ribbon bow! Today i bought opur puppy a winter coat. She is not sure about it, and sat in one place for a long time ( highly unusual for her!) deciding if she should move or not. I have included a photo here for you all! Til tomorrow….
Another Panda card today, and this one is for a newborn baby. The stamp set is party pandas by Stampin Up, and I have used a couple of Seven Paper Doll dies ( stitched rectangles and words) to complete this one. I added a pretty bow, flower and some sequins to bling this one up a bit!I have been busy at work this week so not so much crafting, but I have spent this morning stamping out some flowers onto watercolour paper so that I can practise with my new Zig clean colour markers this afternoon when I am over at Mum and Dads place. The Cruise line contacted me this morning asking if I would like to be their Art/craft instructor again this year so I am having a look at the cruise for this summer and working out which one(s) I can commit to. It’s all good fun! til tomorrow….
Hello! I am sorry I am not posting as often as usual, but I have been busy in the shop,we opened our Paper Flourish On Line store last week, and things have been hectic!I am finding minutes here and there to create, but not as much as I would like. In the meantime, todays card is made with Stampin Up Party pandas stamp set, which I stamped and fussy cut, and the background is inked with Distress oxide ink pads and a circle stencil. The rectangle cross stitched die is a Seven Paper Dolls Die. Til tomorrow…..
two more bird cards made with graphic 45 Safari Adventure papers.The top card has a fair bit of fussy cutting, with a bow and bling, while the bottom card is so simple. I loved the background paper and didn’t want to cut into it or hide it so I just added a little tag in the bottom corner, with some fussy cut flowers layered onto that for a bit of height, and a kaisercraft starlet at the top of the tag.Busy in the craft room today doing some orders, and some more mens cards for Fathers day, the weather is lovely today so I will enjoy sitting out in the sun too! Til tomorrow….
Graphic 45 Safari adventure isn’t all about animals, there are some gorgeous images of birds in this collection too.On the top card I did a little fussy cutting, and layering, and added some hessian and a button. The bottom card is straight forward layering, with the postage stamps cut from some of the patterned paper. I matted the border on the left hand side on some plain cardstock for definition.No other embellishing on this one!Til tomorrow…..
Quick post today, Graphic 45 Safari Adventure.I layered a piece of the green patterned paper from the collection onto my card base, trimmed back the image, fussy cut a tag from another piece of the collection,and stuck on a button ( which looking at the photo appears to have slipped down a bit – will have to check that!Meanwhile imagine the button on the top of the tag!!)Til tomorrow….
For the final couple of cards made with kaisercraft Bonjour (another paper collection done and dusted!) I made Cards in boxes. The butterfly papers in this collection were perfect for this style of card,and I attached them with acetate so they look like they really are fluttering around. A new range of papers tomorrow, til then….
It’s Bird Crazy time !I stamped the bird images onto watercolour paper and coloured with distrss inks,and then fussy cut out. The main reason I wanted to show these cards ( and the two following tomorrow) was for the backgrounds. I taped my watercolour card onto my craft mat with some low tack tape – I used washi tape and this step was done to give the white border around the card. I coloured the whole piece with a light shade of distress ink and sponge, and then stenciled through with darker inks using a variety of stencils. If you don’t have stencils you can use the negative waste from your die cuts, which I have been known to do! For the bottom card I die cut some letters for the Be Cool. When your inked background is finished remove the washi tape, ( Slowly so the card doesnt rip). Til tomorow….
