Good morning everyone....

I'm back again with another pretty card which I've used the most gorgeous paper as the main focal point.  Like the previous card, you need very little else added to it

The paper pad is a 6"x6" Premium Paper Pad by First Edition and called 'Rose Garden'  I believe bought from The Range

The topper is from the first craft kit by Crafter's Companion

This card is for a friend's birthday, last year she developed a taste for gin, and that's why when I saw this sentiment/verse stamp I had to buy it!  It's by Crafter's Companion

This week's Friday Freebie

Leave me a comment if you would like your name added to the draw.  You have until 6pm Saturday to do this
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

Good morning blog friends....

I hope you managed to watch the awaited video yesterday on how to make the gatefold shutter card.  Was I glad when it uploaded to YouTube.... eventually!

For this week's freebie card I've used a beautiful paper from the first craft kit by Crafter's Companion.  I think when you have papers like these you don't need to do much else to the card

I added the sentiment, from the kit, and 4 pink pearls, also from the kit.  The paper was adhered to black card then onto the 7" ivory base card

The pink papers are from a paper pad I've had a while.  They do have a mottled/splodge look, sort of behind the pattern, if you know what I mean.  Whoever wins the card will see what I'm mean

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....

Good morning everyone....

After videoing this technique 4 times, I had to give up!  I must say that those two words are not usually in my vocabulary!

My first video was too long then the following 3 were even longer each time I recorded them, now how does that happen?  So very frustrating.  To post a 10-15 video can take up to 8 hours from start to finish and this one nearly finished me

So, here are the photos and I will get the video sorted and, hopefully, post later today

Until later (I hope)....

Good morning bloggers

I hope you all have had a good weekend?  The weather changed very quickly yesterday and I had to resort to switching on heating!... it's nearly June!  My aunt, in Canada, had to have her air con on, there's no happy medium

For today's card I started with a 7" sq white card base and added a smaller panel of yellow card, then a smaller panel of black card

You may remember this stamp as I used it on 13 May blog post.  It's from the 'Iloveart' on-line store.  I have to mention here that this particular store is much better in posting your goods to you, compared to others in that area

I stamped the image onto white card using a black pigment ink then embossing it with a clear embossing powder

If you click on the image, left, and increase the size, you may see how the black really shines 

I stamped the sentiment using the same ink pad but did not emboss it

The centre of the flowers were coloured using a ProMARKER pen and really match the yellow card

The verse, from the same stamp set as the sentiment, was also stamped with the black ink pad

I used a corner punch on the bottom of the insert and at the top of the other sheet of paper

To complete I partially stamped the image onto the corner of the envelope and coloured the centre of the flower

  • white, black & yellow cardstock
  • floral stamp - Inloveart/on-line store STZH043
  • onyx black ink pad/Versafine
  • tulip yellow ProMARKER
Until tomorrow....
