Prima Meadow lark 3

After a detour yesterday we are back to my Prima Meadow lark series, and here I have used both the paper and one of the matching chipboard pieces, onto which I stamped my sentiment which is from a stampin up set called perfectly penned. The buttterfly is die cut on my cuttlebug using two of my recent purchases – Moonlight butterfly and kaliedescope butterfly from Memeory Box, and I also Die cut a couple of the flowers shown and added some ribbon and lace.The colours on this paper are gorgeous, and if I get some time this weekend ( I still have one day to go in my weekend) I think I will do some with this paper!Til tomorrow…

Stampin Up A kind word…

Although we have finished our sketch series, I still had a fair amount of American Crafts neapolitan paper left, and so created this card, with a stamp I have had for a long time, but rarely inked. I wanted to practise my colouring with tim holtz distress inks, and I am pleased with this first attempt, but don’t look too closely! The stamp is from Stampin Up – A kind word set, and I teamed it with stampin Up cardstock – tangerine Tango and a bit of ribbon and Kaisercraft Rhinestones to complete. I hope to spend a little time in the craft room ( or studio as Nathan calls it and I must admit I like the sound of that description!) tonight as my back appears to have mended itself… Til tomorrow….

Sketch for using scraps number 6

Up to number 6 in our sketch series for scraps. For this one I cut 5 2cm strips in descending lengths and cut a V into the ends. A border strip, seam binding and a tattered floral die cut ( sizzix) and pearl brad finishes this simple card. The paper collection is stampin Up everyday enchantment. The second card follows the sketch closely, but uses bought flowers instead of the die cut, and I stamped a sentiment in the corner.The paper collection is american Crafts Neapolitan, and the cardstock is blushing bride.Looking forward to an evening in the card room, Til tomorrow…

Sketch series for using scraps number 3

Her is number 3 in my sketch series using scraps. The top card is everyday enchantment designer series paper by Stampin Up as is the cardstock – Pool party. I used my tim Holtz sizzix tattered floral die and cut some pages from an old misprinted book, a scalloped edge punch and a pearl brad. The strips were cut 2 cms wide, I varied the length just a little and cut a V into the bottom of them. The second card follows the sketch exactly, and I used American crafts Neapolitan paper, stampin Up crumbcake cardstock for the base and some Bazzil for the mat. This is a favourite sketch and I can imagine it done with some vintage paper and lots of lace instead of the scalloped edge….. Til tomorrow….
