Good Sunday morning....

I think today's card is a good one for the males

 My magazine was only delivered yesterday so I thought I would do a make using a few of the stamps.  This time the stamps are by Sheena Douglass, so you know they are a good quality stamp to use

I used an ivory 7" card and for all the stamping and colouring I used Distress Oxides

I started by stamping the image onto white card (from my left over pieces) and fussy cut it to use as a mask.  I then stamped the image onto the ivory card, covered it with the mask and used my ink dusters and distress inks to create the two tone background

I used fossilized amber and vintage photo to colour the bird and a Paper Mate pencil

Tonic's square die set was used to make a border.  I made two die cuts and glued them together

I used the centres of the dies to adhere to the inside of the card

I stamped off the page with the tree and used the same 'happy birthday' sentiment, as on the card front, for the inside

I used a nearly dry flat brush to create a lighter background on the sentiment by very gently brushing over it as soon as I'd stamped it

To complete I stamped part of the tree set onto the envelope

I will be showing more cards made with these stamps as soon as possible

  1. Love this card June! The distress oxides make a superb background!

  2. Great card again - love the way you use a stamp under the frame and on the envelope. Beautifully coloured too.

  3. Hi June,
    oh how fab I have won the stamps thank you so much.

    I love your card and the very beautiful stamped design your inking looks so fantastic and the cream card sets it all off perfectly.
    I too received my set of stamps yesterday and the magazine.
    I am contemplating making a scene card for the Allsorts Challenge with them.
    Today I used the leaves from last months ones for Darnell's Twofer challenge, but the mica background didn't phtograph well.
    Thank you again for my stamps.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. A lovely card. Congratulations to Jenny L.
