Summer Days....

Back today with another simple card involving stamping, colouring and some die cutting.  This stamp is designed by Lindsay Mason which I coloured in with Promarkers, then matted and layered onto Romantic Rectangle die cuts.  I wanted the card edge to be the die cut, so I cut my white card to fit underneath for some colour to show through and rounded the edges.  Added some red ribbon and a little flower to complete.

Thank you card

A short post today with a little thank you card. I really enjoyed using red and white, so have continued with this colour theme. I stamped the roses in repeat and then added my embossed image at the side.  The join was covered with some ribbon and some gems added as accents.  I stamped and embossed the thank you greeting - not done any embossing for a while and almost forgot what a lovely finish it gives.

Red and White 'girly' card

I have a red and white card to share with you all today. Christine Emberson held a July Inspiration day last week on her blog, which helped me to create this 'girly' card. I began with some simple stamping with my rose stamp and used this along the bottom half.  I used a dress form die cut and layered it with a dress from the same stamped card and then made the paper ruffles! Such a lovely technique and really adds dimension to the card!  To complete, I added some ribbon around the card and the dress along with a flower embellishment.

Thank you

I have recently began to take part in challenges with my creations and last month I was so happy to win 2! The first was a Sarah Hurley challenge with my Red, White and blue card and the other was with Samuel Taylors with the same card where I won these wonderful crafty items.

Just wanted to say thank you very much! Also, thank you to my followers who leave me such wonderful comments on my posts!x

First Christmas Card 2012

To make this card, I started off at art class by using Brusho paints to create my background.  These are beautiful, rich colours and I really like to use them. When this was dry I used bleach with my dotty stamp to create the background.  Then I stamped the trees with archival ink for that clean, crisp impression and added my sentiment and cord for dimension.  A very simple card, a bit different, but I'm pleased with the result!
