Pink Pony Card


Hi, today I have a card that I made using a Carousel Horse stamp by Chocolate Baroque. I have coloured the image with Copic markers and white and gold gel pens. I also added glossy accents to the hooves and saddle. The background papers are by K and Co. and the Kraft card stock is by Bazzill Basics. I used a Fleur De Lis embossing folder by Provo Craft to create the background behind the pony, and used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to add more depth. The circles are Spellbinder Dies and the Fleur De Lis is a punch that I have had for years. The rhinestones, ribbon and button are from my stash. This is a 7 x 7 inch card. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge: 'Round or Square' with http://mojomonday.blogspot.co.uk/

Thanks for looking.

Thinking Of You


Hello, today I have another card to show you once again using the 'Chinese Lantern' stamp set from Chocolate Baroque. I have created the background paper by sparying a peice of Kraft card with Perfect Pearl Mists and inked around the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. I then stamped a swirl stamp from Inkadinkadoo that I have had for years with Black Archival Ink. I attatched gold rhinestones to the dotty swrils on the stamp and the peonies are cut out from the Serenity 6x6 pad from Bo Bunny and adhered with 3D foam. The Lantern is again stamped on Karft, then coloured using Perfect Pearls and Glitter Gel Pens. The sentiment is stamped in Archival Black Ink and more gold rhinestones have been added to the corners. This is a 6 x 6 inch card. Hope you like it.

Chinese Lantern


Hi, today I have another card using the Chinese Lantern clear stamp set by Chocolate Baroque. I have made the background using Perfect Pearl, Turquoise and Interference Red Perfect Pearl Mists. I have then embossed the background using the Crackle embossing folder by Creative Expressions, then lightly inked over the detail with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and used Black Soot Distress ink and Holographic embossing powder around the edge. I then stamped the branch four times with Jet Black Archival ink onto the background and painted the leaves with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and a brown and white gel pen for the fine detail. I stamped the branch a second time and cut out the flowers which I attached using 3D foam. I then die cut the oval out of the centre of the backing paper and glued it to a scalloped oval Spellbinders die- cut out of Bazzill Basics Kraft Card. I stamped the Lantern and painted with the Perfect Pearl Mists and added gems. The white paper flowers are by Woodware and have been sprayed with Interference Red Pearl Mist and the Kraft flower in the centre is a Tonic punch. The leaves were cut using Tropical Leaves by Cheerly-Lyn Designs onto green card stock, then sprayed with the Pearl Mists. The Photo doesn't show off the true colours, or the shimmer of the card when light hits it, but I hope you like it anyway and thanks for looking. This card is 7 x 7 inches.

Chinese New Year


Hi, I have made a card for Chinese New Year using Fan's Cricket by Mo Manning. I have coloured the image using Copic markers and then painted Perfect Pearl Spray over her outfit to make it resemble silk. The gold edging around the layers is embossing powder and the bird cage, which is a Prickley Pear die-cut is also triple embossed with gold. The papers I have used are from Bird Song by First Edition and the lace was from my stash. I punched some flowers and also sprayed them with Perfect Pearl Spay and added pearls to the centre, which are supposed to be green, but look more yellow in the picture and the sentiment was printed. This is made using a 7 x 7 inch card base with a 2 inch strip cut off the right hand side.

Butterfly Case


Hi, today I have a picture of a butterfly case I made a few weeks ago. I made a box out of thick card stock and cut an aperture in the middle. I then lined the lid and base of the box with K and Co. Papers and then covered the aperture with acetate. I then shaped the wings on some die-cut decoupage butterflies before sticking them into place and made the tag using some Spellbinder Dies and a Cavallini text stamp. This case measures 7 1/2 x 8 inches and is 1 inch deep. Hope you have enjoyed seeing something different from a card today, and thanks for visiting.
