Hare Embroidery


Hello, today I have some embroidery to share with you that uses the Hare image from the Wildflower Meadow Clear Stamp Set by Craft Consortium.
I started by stamping the Hare image from the stamp set with Gina K Amalgam Black Ink onto some Calico and heat set it. I then painted the Calico with Derwent Inktense Blocks to create the illusion of a flower filled meadow and sky. I then heat set this and added it to the Embroidery Hoop.
I then used a variety of Cross Stitch Threads to embroider the image. I also added some grasses and french knot flowers to finish.
I hope you like this project and thanks for stopping by.

Spring Time


Hi, today I have a card to share with you that uses the 'Spring Time'  stamp set from Waffle Flower.  I stamped the images with Gina K designs Amalgam ink and coloured using Arteza Watercolour Real Brush Pens. I also added some white gel pen highlights. I then cut out the images leaving a thin white border.
The octagonal frames were cut using my silhouette from papers from the Nature at Heart paper pad from The Works. The background paper is also from the same paper pad. The frames were raised up using 3D Foam. I then added the tree die cut from Cheery Lynn and some of the shrub images with glue to the background before using the rest of the images and 3D Foam squares to build up the scene.
I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.

Magnolia


Hi, just a quick card to share today that uses the Magnolia stamp set from Hobby Art. The Magnolia were stamped with Versamark Ink onto white watercolour card and heat embossed with Pearl powder from Stampendous. I then used Derwent Inktense Blocks to paint the background and images and added white details with a gel pen.
The sentiment is from the Occasions stamp set also by Hobby Art and had been heat embossed in Silver onto a strip of vellum. The main panel was then adhered to a vellum overlay, under which is a panel of pink card stock from my stash.
I finished by adding this onto a 5 x 7 Kraft card base and a few sequins and gems.
I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.

Peonies With Love


Hello, today I have a card to share that uses Hobby Art's Peonies stamp set. The images were stamped with Versamark Ink onto white card stock and heat embossed with Pearl embossing powder from Stampendous. 
I then masked off the peonies with Mask-It and added a layer of 'Faded Jeans' Distress Oxide to the background, which I then sprayed with water and lifted off the excess with paper towel. 
I then painted the flowers with a flat base of Distress Oxides using the following colours to mix the colours I needed: Faded Jeans, Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Cracked Pistachio and Black Soot.
I then used Copic markers to add shading to the petals and leaves and a White Gel Pen to add detail to the flower centres. I then used my Black Copic marker to edge the panel before adding to a 5 x 7 white card base using 3D Foam tape.
The 'With' stamp is taken from Hobby Art's Hummingbirds stamp set and heat embossed with White onto black card. The Love is a die from The Works, which has been cut three times and layered to create depth. I then finished the card with some beads and gems from my stash.
I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by.

Wish Upon A Star!


Hello, just a quick card to share with you today that uses Hobby Art's Unicorn Kisses stamp set and also their new Cloud stencil.
The galaxy effect background paper if from the 'Lovely Mystery' 12 x 12 paper pad from The Works. I added some sparkly clouds in the background using the stencil, Versamark Ink and 'Stardust' Embossing Powder by Stampendous. I then added some more clouds using homemade texture paste, which I then covered in chunky iridescent glitter.
The images were stamped using 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and coloured using Copic Markers and white gel pen details. I then cut the images out leaving a thin white border. I adhered these to the background panel using 3D Foam squares. I also added some Glossy Accents to the hooves and stars.
I cut another panel of background paper and added a vellum overlay onto which I added my main panel. I added the sentiment which was heat embossed with gold onto black card and some heart and star shaped sequins from my stash.
Hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.
