IN THE PINK

Morning crafters....


I think this is a stunning shade of pink, or would you call it fuchsia?  Either way it's a beautiful colour

I created an 8" square card base, top folding.  Then a smaller panel of white card another smaller panel of pink.  This card was embossed

Then a 6" square panel of white card, followed by a smaller piece of pink card, were adhered together and on the back of the card I added lightweight card to give it dimension

This was adhered to the base card in a diamond shape


The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed onto white card and die cut using an oval die by Creative Expressions

I made a white frame by die cutting 2 oval dies 4 times and adhering them together .  A smaller pink oval frame was die cut.  This was adhered to the white stamped card then the white frame glued around it was glued into place

I used the Starflowers Die Set by John Lockwood to die cut numerous layers of pink flowers, shaped the petals and glued the layers together finishing with a white centre and a tiny black gem placed into the middle of it

The Starflower Leaves Die Set was used 3 times on white card then each leaf was shaped

The flowers were adhered to the card then the leaves and to complete 3 tiny black gems were glued into place inside the plaque

All the card used is by Papermill Direct and the texture and finish is gorgeous.  It is excellent using a top quality card for your makes

Until tomorrow....

A SHARE FROM ME TO YOU

Morning....

The image below does not do justice to the original piece, my printer is on its last

I follow this very talented lady, her name is Lisa Hetrick and she gives you a free image, via email, to use personally.  She does ask you not to copy "with intent to distribute" which is quite understandable, and I've had lovely images from her in the past, although I've never used any!

The flowers on the image below are a vivid fuchsia on the original email, and I'm sure someone would love to receive it from you

Check her work out and why not sign up for future emails and enjoy what this lady creates

You can find her at:  indigojadeart.com

MINI ALBUM & CARD WINNER

Morning all....

I have my latest, completed album to show you today.  I made it for my stepson's birthday, he loves 'bling' so you see it on most of the pages in one way or another.  It's shown without any photographs as my stepson has yet to receive his album which is why I'm unable to enclose any pictures

I hope you like it

THINKING OF YOU

Morning all....


The poppy stamp is one of a set of flowers by Sheena Douglass and is my favourite flower too!  There are 4 varieties of flowers with coordinating dies.  I don't have the dies and fussy cut this image

I stamped the flower onto the smooth side of  Ranger's, white watercolour card.  This card is a true white and the best quality I've ever used

I used several shades of Derwent's water colour pencils for both the flower and foliage then left it to one side to dry

The black card was cut to size for the 5"x7" base card and a Martha Stewart punch gave the filigree edge.  I also rounded one corner with a Woodware punch

The sentiment was embossed and heat set using VersaMark clear stamp pad and Hero Arts white embossing powder.  This is a true white embossing powder, I love using it

I also partially stamped the flower on the inside of the card

Before assembling the card I gave the flower a quick blast of heat then debated if I should add 'Glossy Accents' to it or a 'Wink Of Stella', the latter won this time.  It really does give a great shimmer, I usually use the clear and when I ordered it, from Amazon, I ordered clear but a gold shimmer was delivered!


Until tomorrow....

Using A Selection Of The 'Sport Stamp Set' From Joanna Sheen

Good afternoon!..... 

The stamp set with this month's Creative Stamping Magazine Issue 56, is by Joanna Sheen, and it's a fabulous A4 page of stamps, ideal for making cards for the male population, as we do struggle with those at times

I have a slider card to show you and the card I demonstrated on the video after I repaired it!  There's also 2 ways I've used distress oxide inks for a background

I hope you enjoy it....









Until tomorrow....
