Quick Card

I have so many unfinished bits and bobs on my desk, that I wanted to create a quick card to share today (as I haven't posted for a while).  I saw this technique on Marion's blog, where you use the solid side of the acrylic stamp to do the background colour and then I stamped over with black. I  really love the effect it gives and so easy too!

Red, White and Blue...

With it being 'Diamond Jubilee Week', I thought I must make a card with the theme of red, white and blue.
 I started by using the Tim Holtz dress form die and I added the dress which I cut out from some Union Jack paper. The flowers were die cut from the same paper, layered up and I used gold card candi for the centres.  The sentiment was stamped and added to the card as a finishing touch - love this sentiment!

A Floral Friendship Card

Good Afternoon All!
A friendship card to share today.  I just love this sentiment and the flowers, so wanted to make them the focal point of my card.  To make the frame (which took some measuring and gluing), I used a Martha Stewart punch, then cut the edges diagonally and glued them together!  The Spellbinder Rose Creations flowers were die cut and then I stamped over them with my Dawn Bibby Daisy stamp and made a background to match.

I love reading all your very kind comments - Thank you all, especially those who  follow my blog.x

Get Well Soon Card

I needed to make a Get Well Soon Card this week for a male, well where do you start?  For ladies, it's fairly easy, just use flowers, but for a man?  At craft club, yesterday, one of the ladies showed me some of her newest Michael Powell stamps and I really liked the one that I have used on my card, which is called 'The Harbourside'.  I have kept it very simple and stamped the image with Vintage photo distress ink and then used my water brush to colour the image.  I have have embossed some white card for the background, to give it some depth and added the sentiment.

Apologies about the picture, I found it really difficult to photo due to the delicate colouring and the white card.
