I didn't realise that it's been so long since I posted anything!!.. I've been busy with so many other things going on in my 'non computer life' Lol..
I was asked to make these 2 cards recently.
The first one uses the Daffodil on the Winter flowers for pots rubber stamps, the vase is a peel off with some blue celephane..I did the same for the frame to match. The lace is stamped (Anna Griffin).
The second card I made using one of Sue Wilsons lovely new dies.. this one is called 'Hollywood' from the Californian Collection - I layered it down into the card with some green vellum behind. The border on the side is one of Anna Griffins slim embossing border folders.
Thanks for visiting today.. I hope not to leave it so long between posts next time :)
With 3 grandchildren......I've been busy getting ready for tomorrow... 1st December
I made these with brown craft card and a lovely papermania Christmas in the country paper pad all cut out using the Tonic 3D star die. I cut little windows in the back intending to add the treat after making them all up, but decided to add big chocolate coins as I was glueing them together..the little window will make it easier to rip open the star to get to the chocolate... just what little kiddies love doing LOLOL!!
I'll post more piccys when I get photos of them hanging up!
When Joanna asked me to design lots of little flowers to fit into her brand new signature container dies, I knew I would l love them... and I do. They are so much fun to play with!.. when I was asked to make a card for a friends Mum who loves flowers - I knew that these would be perfect for her.
I stamped all the flowers out multiple times on sheets of white card using various colours of ink pads.. then spent a very relaxing few hours colouring them all in with promarker pens.
I cut out the ones I wanted for the card, leaving the rest for the next card I make. I added some cut out flowers on the inside of the card as well.
The backing paper on the card was stamped with several colours to create a clean bright pattern. The Background for the image was created using the brick and stonework stamps from Joanna Sheen Country House stamps that I designed a few years ago.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I would love to know what you think of these little flowers and the new wonderful Signature Container dies that are available on the Joanna Sheen website right now!.
Joanna Sheen has some amazingly gorgeous new Signature dies - lots of garden containers. They are so adorable and will look fantastic on both cards and scrapbook pages and any other projects you can think of. I was asked to design a set of flower stamps to go with them.
Pop along the the Joanna Sheen Website and see for yourself :)
Joanna Sheen launched her brand new Vintage Christmas stamps the other day. I designed these for her, here are my sample cards.
I used a snowflake punch to make the greenery. The pine cones and the birds on the holly images are on the Make a Wish stamp sheet. I made the shimmery background using mica sprays.
I love making anything that used honeycomb papers. I made them the same way as the Honeycomb hearts I made back in February. These baubles have gold embossed Reindeers running along them, the pine cone, background baubles and pine cones are on the Make a Wish stamp sheet.
Here they are opened up...
I stamped the large single Poinsettia serveral times, enough to cut out and layer them up. The topper is also one of the stamps on the Make a Wish stamp sheet.
I stamped the same Poinsettia spray to make this topper. First I stamped and embossed it with white powder onto Vellum, coloured it on the back with promarker pens, then I run this through the cuttlebug in the frame embossing folder. I also embossed the red card with the same folder. I cut out the middle part from the red so that the vellum one could sit inside it from behind, the whole thing was layered onto gold paper to give the topper a gold glow through the vellum. I stamped the lace border also on vellum and layered it on some green mirror card.
Using the vintage radio as inspiration I made this card. I cut the card into a radio shape adding various brown card, some embossed, some I used a pen to add details. I used peeloffs too. The knobs are buttons with nail heads (like a smaller card candy) in silver glued on top.
For this card I used the Christmas tree from the Starlight Starbright sheet of stamps. I cut a pentagon from vellum, layering it onto blue card. I then stamped the tree 5 times also onto vellum - arranging them around the pentagon to make a star shape. The blue background has some of the pretty snowflakes from the same sheet along with the Star Light and Star Bright words. I added lines with a white gel pen to give the impression of the star shining.
This card uses a lovely oval frame sizzix embossing folder, I inked one side of the folder with red before I run it through the machine giving the frame some colour. The background is stamped with various colours of the snowflake stamp. The topper is the lovely Father Christmas on the Starlight Starbright sheet. and so are the Christmas Roses and Baubles that I stamped onto vellum.
The window is a mini shaker window.. with the reindeer stamped for the background in the window. The festive banner looks wonderful decoupaged at the top and the paper chains are cut out to look like they've been hung up! The poinsettia was stamped several times but some coloured green with the red ones layered up on the top.
