FOREVER

Good morning one and all....

The beautiful paper I've used on today's card was bought, many years ago, whilst holidaying in Canada.  It's a 12"x12" (I bought several for scrapbooking!)  and every time I see it in my stash I always think I should do something with it!  So I have for today's card


The tree, as you can easily see on the image below, is a sparkly dark green and the background is a mottled grey

I love the single word of 'forever' 

I backed this onto a slightly larger piece of white card then the black base card 

I am thinking about a frame for it, or, as it's my brother's birthday tomorrow, stamping 'brother' underneath the 'forever' and giving it to him.  Time will tell but either way brother's birthday card has to be hand delivered today!



Until tomorrow....

ADDING THAT EXTRA SMALL DETAIL


Good morning everyone....

I hope yesterday was a lovely sunny day for you.  It certainly was in the north east!


On Monday I posted this card and kept looking at it when I was in my craft room as I thought it really could do with a little something to lift the poppies


I added Glossy Accents/Ranger to the flower heads and that made such a difference to the richness of the flowers and the card, in my opinion, looks far more inviting than the one above



I also added a few drops of the Glossy Accents to the leaves

Unfortunately, for some unknown reason, you can't see the shine on the full card, unlike the two above.... grrr!


So when you are making your special card and you think it may need a little 'extra boost' try Glossy Accents or whatever you may have in your stash!

Until tomorrow....

WEEKLY WEDNESDAY CARD GIVE-AWAY ~~~~ YOU ARE AMAZING

Good morning bloggers, friends & visitors....

Our card for this week's give away is a dahlia inspired design


I used a white 5"x7" card base and then on watercolour card I splashed a little blue colour across it

I made the dahlia flower, by Elizabeth Craft Designs Die Set, by adding shades of pink and peach onto lightweight cardstock and spritzing it all over.  I ensured the centre of the flower was left a deep shade of pink.  I also added colour to the back of the petals

The stalk and leaves were die cut from green cardstock and I added a deeper colour to the centre of both leaves

I die cut a frame from white cardstock and temporarily positioned it to see where I could stamp my sentiment (my stash).  Once stamped I added mounting foam to the frame and adhered it in place

To complete 3 pearls were adhered to the top and bottom of the card, one in the centre of the flower and 3 beside the sentiment

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 later....
