Tilda Country Escape number 3 – very vintage!

IMG_3170 (Medium) A very early post today as I have a feeling life around here is going to be busy later on..This is a very similar sketch to the previous card, but I have stepped it up a little bit by adding the doily and a couple of extra layers and ribbon. the paper is Tilda Country Escape 12 x 12 paper pad, and the flowers are by Prima. I punched some leaves with my Martha Stewart frond punch and added some liquid pearls in the top right hand corner. It goes without saying that lace and lovely ribbon also featured! Til tomorrow….

Vintage gingham garden

IMG_8878 (Medium)The paper I used on this card is from Stampin up – Gingham garden. Although the colours are quite modern I couldn’t resist giving this one a bit of a vintage twist – by adding ribbon, lace, a flower and a doily which I coloured with my squeezed lemonade distress ink pad. I am quite liking the yelolow/ pink colour combination at the moment1The sentiment is also from stampin up. Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft true Romance number 1 and 2..

IMG_2870 (Medium)IMG_2871 (Medium)This set of cards are made using Kaisercraft True Romance paper collection by Kaisercraft. I love this paper, and have made many many cards with it – I can’t believe these are the first I have posted – this is how far behind I am in the whole posting thing! The card just above makes use of some clear dome stickers stuck over the top of the little images which I cut out of some of the paper in theĀ  6″ pad.The die used is spellbinders Picot circles, and added lace, ribbon and a flower to finish.til tomorrow….

Prima Divine number 1

IMG_8855 (Medium)Today we start my Prrima Divine series – This paper is right up there with all time favourites, it has a distinct vintage flavour and lends itself well to shabby chic as well – my favourite styles! It distresses well and so I did a lot of that…..I bought the a4 pad in this collection, because its tailored made for cardmakers, the size means each sheet can cover 4 cards comfortably with no waste, and I also purchased a sheet of chipboard pieces – the tea cup on this card is one of them. I inked aroung all my edges, added a ribbon bow andĀ  flowers and stamped a sentiment with a stampin up stamp.
