Country house sample cards

..More to come in January. These were launched yesterday on C&C on the Dawn Bibby show. Here are the cards I made in more detail.
This card was shown like this by Dawn
..but it is an easel card.....
..with a drop down draw bridge where I've added a little notebook and greeting

I stamped the brick stamp with purple ink onto velvet paper for the castle adding little glittered rectangles for the windows, I inked with Tim holtz seedless preserves ink for most of the colouring and stamping. The drawbridge wood is an embossing folder.

I used Thomas Kinkade backing paper to stamp the gates and for the background, so the gates blended in. The stone stamps are used to create the border around the card. Inside is one of Joanna Sheens wordy stamps
I stamped the stone doorway first and made a door to fit it, scoring with a scoreboard and adding extra texture freehand with the scoring tool. I stamped the urns and inked them a little bit to add dimension and filled them both with punched flowers and leaves. The brick wall is the brick stamped with distress ink and a water brush to colour lightly.
Stamped and gold embossed flower and coloured with promarker pens and layered. The leaves are from the JS Pressed flower rubber stamps
Thanks for looking

Pressed flower sample cards

I really enjoyed getting stuck into pressed flowers again to make these sample cards for Joanna Sheen.

DIY sample cards

I haven't felt like blogging for quite a while due to family stuff.

I thought I would add some of the sample cards that I made and that were shown on the TV a few weekend's ago by Joanna Sheen.
First here is a Tool shed card
I used a score board to create the wood and used the score tool to add extra texture and then coloured it with distress ink direct to card and rubbed with cut and dry. Inside looks like this:
I stamped the tools twice..embossing one lot with silver powder.. and then snipping them to make one tool each after using promarkers to colour them. I created the peg board look using my Big Bite tool.

Here's the other card I made for the show
I made the tool belt from inked up card.. made the shape up as I went along .. it grew as I made it... Lol! I added the stitiching with a white gel pen.
and here is the pop up tool box inside..I can't take full credit for this pop out idea as I was totally inspired by this lady's blog here
I change mine for what I wanted by adding more drawerfronts etc.

I will be back soon with more sample cards for the groovy baby stamps and the pressed flower cards I made.

Bye for now.
