Card made over the last few weeks…………

12 Feb

Just watching the blizzard out of the window, curled up with laptop in front of roaring fire and trying to stop cat chewing thru the wire of the mouse….. so I thought I’d continue where I left off yesterday.

Now any useful designer would tell you what materials they used so anyone  interested could do the same thing. Hmm! Well I forgot about that bit ….. and am I the only crafter who gets distracted and pulls all sorts of goodies out of the craft stuffed drawers and boxes and forgets what I’ve used anyway?? Sigh!

Well I could tell you that yesterdays card used Elusive Images Butterfly Daisy Collage Unmounted Rubber Stamp Themeplate with the text box coming from the Harlequin Rose Themeplate.

The following card used the Butterfly Poppy Collage stamp, stamped onto stampboard where the background  had been glimmer misted.imgp26244 The poppies were actually coloured in using Sakura pens before being triple embossed. The background paper is printed from the Sesons Greetings CD (who says you have to wait till Christmas??) and the red and blue glitter strips are just ultra fine glitter being smoothed over the tracks of double sided tape. The greeting (from Harlequin Rose) is glitter being sprinkled over the stamp being stamped in glue from Tsukineko Essential Glue Pad.


Another simple card (sorry for the quality of the photos by the way – something else I have to improve on I think!) is this simply embossed gatefold card.Gatefold Heart Again the stamps used are from the Harlequin Rose themeplate and the whole card is made from Gold embossing with good use of Gold mirri card. The dangling heart, however, is made by stamping into red enamalling magic powder. Does look bonny inthe light!!


An easy card to make is my ‘Have a Great Day’ card. It uses two flowers from the Butterfly Daisy Collage which are stuck together and coloured in using Sakura Glaze pens. I do love those pens as they give such intense colours.imgp2609b4

The card is DL with a circular aperture which has a strip of gold mirri card leading to the base. Perhaps the highlight is a lovely bow left over from a box of Christmas chocolates!


Now the cats are demanding to be fed, I’ll just leave you with a few pictures of my other designs. Thank you so much for looking!!

    Wow! How have I missed your blog before? Your cards are lovely. I think my favourites are the poppy pods tiles and the heart gatefold. I really have to add you to my blog list. Thanks for sharing and good luck with the blog.
