BEES & SHRINK PLASTIC

Good morning blog friends....

My absence yesterday was because of the rheumatoid, it's really affecting the whole of my body, especially though, my hands and feet.  It's been a battle since last taking rheumatoid medication in December and it'll be towards the end of September when I can restart it again.... 9 months!  That's when I finish the TB medication!  I sound as if I should be shot lol, but, a 'fighter' I am and I do my best not to let it get the better of me (some days)

Down to business.  My two cards today were made so that I could enter the 'Twofer Card Challenge #17'  and the theme is bees.  You make two different cards using the same theme.  Here is the link if you would like to see what the talented DTs have made and a few of the entries:



 This first card, point to point, is a 6" square.  I used several distress oxides for the background colour and added little splodges of dots using a very small freebie stamp

I then stamped the rose images using another DO ink and coloured with a ProMARKER.  I also added NUVO Crystal Drops in 'morning dew' on both rose buds and around the card

A watercolour pencil was used to mark a frame and the sentiment was stamp with a DO ink, die cut and embossed then colour added around the edge.  I added mounting foam to the back and placed it onto the card

I have only one bee stamp and that is a little on the large size (you'll see this on the second card) and far too large for the small roses, so I stamped the image onto shrink plastic, coloured it, cut it out and added heat to shrink it

INGREDIENTS:
  • broken china/fired brick/fossilized amber/ground coffee/picked raspberry Distress Oxide Inks - Ranger
  • bee stamp - unknown
  • tulip yellow - ProMARKER
  • morning dew NUVO Crystal Drops - Tonic
  • african violet watercolour pencil - Tonic
  • shrink plastic - www.luckysquirrel.com


For the second card I went for a 'fun theme'.  Using a DL size card and my one and only bee stamp I stamped the bees around the card and also did some second generation stamping

The bees were coloured with a ProMARKER and I typed the sentiment, added several zs, distressed the edges with the same ProMARKER  as well as curling the yellow tourbillon to hang from the sentiment

I also stamped and coloured a been on the corner of the envelope

INGREDIENTS:
  • bee stamp - unknown
  • tulip yellow - ProMARKER
  • yellow tourbillon - my stash
I would like to enter the following challenge:
                                      Twofer Card Challenge # 17                                                           
Last week's embossing folder wasn't claimed so it is up for grabs again today

WEEKLY WEDNESDAY CARD GIVE-AWAY....PRETTY IN PINK

Good morning blog friends....


I started with an 8" square, white card base, then added a panel of white card followed by a die cut panel of white card, then pink

On top of the pink card I added another white panel then topped it with a smaller, pretty pink paper

I cut a smaller square of white card and embossed it, added mounting foam to the back and placed it centre on the card

The same pink card was used on the 'round' final die cut and pearls added around the centre portion

I made a bow from white silky crush ribbon, attached that to the card, the swirls were already in my stash box, as were the two flowers.  I added a pearl to the centre of each

To complete the card I used NUVO matt drops to each of the corners

TIP: If I were adding a sentiment to the card front I would be tempted to use a narrow flag type and tuck one end behind the centre of the die cut

INGREDIENTS:
  • pink card - Crafter's Companion
  • flowery paper - unknown
  • main 'circle' die - unknown
  • die cut squares, swirls, flowers, pearls and silky crush ribbon - Creative Expressions
  • NUVO Crystal Drops/Bubblegum Blush - Tonic

As always if you would like to give this card a new home please comment on this post by 6pm Friday.  We use Random.Name Picker to choose a winner therefore it doesn't matter if you have won previously


We also ship internationally at our own expense

Until tomorrow....

TECHNIQUE TUESDAY - FOLD AWAY 4" CARD

Good morning bloggers....

I've mentioned in the video how I found the base of this card in one of my stash boxes.  I don't know how long I've had it nor how I made the template, but, if you would like the template already cut out please let me know and I will post it to you (my 'colourful' drawing may be more confusing than helpful!)

Mini Album Using 5"x7" Cards

Hello bloggers!...

This is an easy and quick mini album I made for a dear friend's 70th birthday.  I used 8, 5"x7" cards, to make it.  The pages are all made the same way and once you have your cards and papers cut to size it is very easy to put them together




https://youtu.be/0cUVuQIrNj4

I hope you enjoy the video and please let me know if you would like to see how I assemble the album



Until tomorrow....
