Cameo meets Anna Griffin

Here are some cards I made with the Lace and Cameo stamps with some of my stash.

I used some of the lovely Anna Griffin frame and quote stamps when they were on QVC a while ago.  The backing paper used on this card is from the Thomas Kinkade CD... there are some gorgeous backing papers on this fab CD collection that I use all the time. I used the square lattice embossing folder by SU for the cream panel.. I love this folder because I love the texture.  The Lace is from the Live each moment stamp sheet stamped onto cream paper with aged mahogony Tim Holtz distress ink.  Those lovely Roses are from a lovely pack of Anna Griffin Rose 3D stickers ... I love those Lol...

 Another similar card here but using the Tied together embossing folder inked one side on the folder with TH Antique linen before running through my cuttlebug.. I love this effect, it's so soft. I used two layers of white embossed lace that I coloured after with ink .. adding a bow from the same Live each moment Lace stamp sheet and two gorgeous Anna Griffin yellow 3D Rose stickers.

For this card I stamped one of the Cameos onto black card and embossed with Gilded Ivory embossing powder then die cut the cameo using a spellbinders oval die.  I then stamped one of the lovely Anna Griffin oval frames using the same embossing powder - layering the cameo over the frame.  Using a small 4" doily and some lovely black patterned card (which is card from packaging that I had to save!).. to tone down the white card I inked the edges using TH Antique linen ink.  Quite a simple card to make but I think looks fab!

I did the cameo the same way as above but stamped onto cream card and then inked it green...for the frame I inked TH Bundled sage green on the outside of frame and TH weathered wood in the inside.  I added some lace from the Take one step lace stamp sheet that was stamped and embossed with seafoam white and inked with the TH bundled sage green... this is layered over some  gorgeous  backing paper from the Ivory cats CD

This Card using the same technique used above to create this kind of cameo but this time using shades of pink ink to create the coloured cameo   The gorgeous backing paper is from the lovely Ivory cats CD.

Thank you for visiting my blog today... See you soon..

  2. Wow, more beautiful cards. I've just had another look, and I really can't choose a favourite. Love that floral backing paper, and the way you've used the lace as a border on the Friendship card. Love the colours of the green one, and the simplicity of the black and ivory, well, just love them all. x

    1. Thanks Rosie, That lovely backing paper is printed from the Joanna sheen Ivory Cats CDrom, it has been retired from her now, but you might still find a copy on ebay. That paper is in the rug section, 3rd page, 4th rug.. Thanks for your lovely comments.
      Hugs Sylvie x
