I've created a flower shaped card using my Silhouette machine and layered embossed yellow, cream and orange card for a textured effect. I've framed the image with some flowers and a pretty organza double bow.
I'm on a drive to increase my Christmas cards in preparation for December. This is one of my favourite Christmas images from Stamping Bella. I've kept it simple with some pretty papers and a layered sentiment.
This image is so versatile for a birthday, or even for a 'just because' card. I've made quite a fussy card for this one, but am also working on him again for a clean and simple layout because I liked him so much.
I've been in clean and simple mode recently, so this little fella is the centre of attention sat on his log clutching his pink flower. I've used matching papers and my favourite Whimsy birthday shadow die to frame him.
I've made a set of sweet cards using a stamp set from Colorado Craft called Tea Time Fun. I've stamped and watercoloured the image, and then matted it onto alternating layers of nude pink, white and fuschia pink coloured card. The sentiments are both Mama Elephant and I've cut out a double shadow around the text for each using the same card colours.
Another fairly simple layout featuring Sweet Pea Garden Girlie from Stamping Bella. I've framed her with multiple layers of yellow and orange card, and added some die cut flowers and a layered birthday sentiment.
I loved colouring this Daisy Squidgy image again in these Springtime colours. I just need the warmer weather now to go with it!
It wasn't until I'd finished colouring my image and composing all the card layers that I decided I wanted to add a die-cut sentiment, and I wanted a 'You Are' portion to go with the 'Amazing' text. After hunting through my images, I found this 'You Are' from a recent MFT Sweetest Safari set, and I set about masking it in order to extract the two words I wanted.
This is what I ended up with, before adding the die cut 'Amazing', which I cut and layered 3 times in the lime green card:
I've watercoloured the adorable Happy Day bunny image from Colorado Craft Company. The image has been die cut using a stitched rectangle die before being matted onto multiple layers of red and cream to frame it.
I fussy cut the image and used a blending brush to create a bit of blue sky behind the bunnies.
I'm trying my best to move from Winter to Spring themes to encourage in the longer days and sunnier skies! I've watercoloured the image and added a little pencil and stenciled the background after masking the image. The sentiment is typed using mycurrent favourite fancy font called 'hello'.
It's Sue here today to show you some Christmas cards (because I am never done with Christmas)!
I absolutely loved making these. The layout was inspired by Colorado Craft Company DT (BIG thanks to them for being amazing) - but for my cards, I created my own backgrounds and used some odd bits of old design paper.
My favourite of this set was heat embossed in silver onto a background I created by using a brayer to add Stoneblue Catherine Pooler Ink onto card. I then lightly splashed the card with white acrylic paint.
I finished the card by adding a white heat embossed sentiment on black card and some clear droplets. (I cut little banners myself)
These two are stamped onto a rather ancient piece of design paper - I knew I kept it for a reason!
...and to mix it up a bit I stamped this one onto another senior piece of design paper and heat embossed it in glittery gold embossing powder, finally adding some gorgeous gold droplets.
