Deer Snow Globe


Hi, today I have a quick card to share with you that matches the Bunny snow globe card from my last post.
The card was made exactly the same, but I used the deer, scene and bird stamps from the stamp set before running it through the snow globe embossing folder which came with issue 184 of Papercraft Inspirations Magazine.
I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by.

Bunny Snow Globe


Hello, today I have a card to share with you that uses stamps and an embossing folder which was the free gift that came with issue 184 of Paper Craft Inspirations magazine.
I started by stamping the image onto white card with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and embossing with clear powder. I then lined the image up with the embossing folder and taped in place with washing tape, while I ran it through my cutllebug. I then trimmed the panel to size. I also embossed the greeting part of the embossing folder and trimmed into a strip, which will later be raised using 3D foam.
I used Distress Oxides to paint the image and a B45 Copic marker to colour the snow globe. The Holly and sentiment were coloured with gel pens, along with white gel pen highlights.
The panel was then added to a Kraft card layer. The backing paper is from Joy crafts and the Kraft card base is 6 x 6.
I finished by adding some sequins and 3D pearl drops to the snow flakes on the embossed panel.
I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.

Panda Birthday Wishes

Hello, today I have a quick card to share with you that uses this gorgeous Panda stamp set by Marij Rahder.
The image was stamped on to white card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and embossed with clear powder. I also stamped the corners by doing a little masking. I then used Distress Oxides to paint the image and added details with a white gel pen before cutting out leaving a slight border.
For the background I embossed a piece of white card using a Provo Craft embossing folder and added some of the Distress Oxides around the edges.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with Penny Copper powder by Stampendous on to a strip of vellum. I adhered the images with 3D foam and added this to a 6 x 6 Kraft card base.
I finished by adding some sequins and green 3D pearl drops.
I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday Vintage Florals


    Hi. today I have a card to share with you that uses some more of my own hand drawn images. I sketched out the flowers onto some white card, then used a Black Micron Pen to Ink the flowers. I coloured the flowers with Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils, Paper Stumps and Gamsol. I then added some clear Wink of Stella to the flowers, before cutting them out.
   The pink background was made with Homemade texture paste and the 'Flourish' stencil by Tim Holtz. While the texture paste was still wet I covered it with Stampendous Clear Pearl embossing powder and heat set when the paste had dried. I added 'Tattered Rose' and 'Victorian Velvet' Distress Ink over the background and sprayed with Perfect Pearl Spray.
    The white layer was made by running some white card through the 'Trellis' embossing folder from Couture Creations and spraying with the Pearl Spray.
    The green card that I used for my layering was made using 'Bundled Sage' Distress Ink. The die cut sentiment was cut with a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs from black card and Clear Wink of Stella added. I finished my card with some clear gemstones from my stash.
    I hope you like my card and thanks for taking the time to visit.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #161- Shaped Cards


Hi, Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers. Jackie is the hostess for this fortnight's challenge and would like to see your Shaped Cards.

For my card I decided to make an Octagonal easel card as a base for my river bank scene. For the top part of the easel card, I cut an aperture from the Kraft card that I used as my base card and added acetate and some torn strips of blue and green patterned papers from the 'Stomp' paper pad by My Minds Eye to create the backdrop.

For the Bulrushes and Vines I used the 'Wildflowers' stamp set from Hobby Art. The Bulrushes I stamped onto white card with Back Memento Ink and coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, before cutting out. The Vines were stamped with Versamark Ink onto acetate and heat embossed with 'Topiary Dark Green' from Personal Impressions.

The Heron was hand drawn with a Black Uni Pin Pen and coloured with Grey Copic markers and Polychromos pencils. I also added some Glossy Accents to his eye and beak.

I made some more Lily pads from air dry clay and some Water Lilies using a Tonic punch and Micro Beads. The frog, fish, boat and dragonfly are decorative buttons from my stash and the brown spotty paper is also from the 'Stomp' Paper pad. The sentiment is from Hobby Art's 'Sentiment' stamp set and has been stamped with 'Broken China' Distress Ink. I finished by adding some ripples and glitter where the heron is standing in the water.

I hope you like my card and please check out the Design Teams cards as they have made some beautiful projects and I hope you are inspired to enter the challenge.

Just Hanging Around!


Hello, today I have a card to share with you that I have made using another of my own drawn images. 

I drew and and painted the Sloth on his branch using Cotman watercolours by Winsor and Newton.

I also painted some leaves that were cut using some Cheery- Lynn dies and some more tree trunks for the background. 

The background panel was made with watercolour card, 'Bundled Sage', 'Cracked Pistachio' and 'Mermaid Lagoon' Distress Ink and Pearl Mica Spray. 

The leafy background is actually another layer of card that was part of some perfume packaging that I re purposed and painted with Acrylic Paint. 

The Hibiscus were made with vellum and a Tonic Punch and coloured with some Papermate felt tip pens. I also added some orange beads for the centres.

The Kraft card border has been embossed and 'Walnut Satin' Distress Ink added to reveal the pattern.

I hope you like this card and thanks for taking the time to visit.
