English rose stamp number 3

here is my final card in my Kaisercraft English Rose stamp series. This time I have teamed it with Kaisercraft Madame Boutique paper for a totally different look. I coloured it with tim holtz distress inks and my aquabrush, and used the Cheery Lyn Polynesian sails oval die. I also used Memory box moonlight butterfly and kaliedascope butterfly dies, and the For You sentiment was stamped using a stamp from Stampin Up elements of Style set and fussy cut. It’s been very cold here today, and I am thinking of dragging the heater into the card room before I go through there later! Til tomorrow….

A found stamp…

While I was looking for something else entirely I found a stamp I had purchased at the same time I bought the matching papers ( kaisercraft English Rose) and filed away and then promptly forgot about, so I thought  it was about time it was inked up, and I made this series of cards, same design, just changing the colourways.I used my new Cheery Lyn Polynesian sails Oval die, and coloured the stamped images with Tim Holtz distress inks and an aquabrush.I have found the perfect paper for male themed cards, ( Simple stories Awesome) and today I have been on a creative roll making lots of boys and mens cards.Til tomorrow….

Vintage Anniversary

This is a weddding anniversary card that I made for my market box. I used my new Cheery Lyn Polynesian Sails Oval die, which I like, but found I had to use my metal plate with it to get the delicate cuts, although that could be my cuttlebug, as it is the first major item I bought when I started cardmaking, and I use it on almost every card I make and I think the rollers are a bit loose. The papers I used here are from Melissa Francis C’est La Vie range and I just added a little ribbon and lace. I bent over yesterday, and my back decided that it liked that position and I couldn’t straighten up so I have been in a fair bit of pain, and no cardmaking has been happening. I have given myself a stern talking to, and it is a little better so I might be able to sit in the card room tonight.. Til tomorrow….
