Before I start there is a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers from today Cute with a dark twist. I tried to do this one but couldn't get it right so maybe you will have better luck, pop across to the blog to see the fabulous inspiration from the design team.
This is a card I made for someone in my Mum's work as they are having a difficult time at the minute. I used the papers from the Flower Fairy cd, I cut various shapes with my dies, embellished the strip with my punch, inked everything using my distress inks, I used the Lavender Fairy stamp for the image, coloured her with Promarkers, glittered her wings and used my newest toy the little tiny tapestry stamps to create the border around the top section of the easel. My mum was really pleased with it and I had a great time making it.
This is one of the many thank you cards I will be making as we want to say thanks to all the people who helped us and took time out there busy lives while my sister was very ill. She is getting better but I wish her sight would improve for her. I used the papers from the Oxford Kanban paper pad. I quilled the flowers using a new die I hadn't played with yet, cut some leaves, butterflies and my new favourite die from Memory Box. I got this at the show at Leigh and I really like the effect two of them slightly offset gives.
This is a close up of my paper flowers, I think I will be playing with these again soon as I enjoyed making them.
This is another thankyou card, more Kanban papers and more dies, what would I do with out them.
Yet another thankyou card you will be fed up looking at them soon I think! A different style for this one I used the Forever Friends Black and Gold Stamp set, cut the card and the shapes, coloured the picture with watercolour pencils for a change as I wanted a softer look.
That's all for now, thanks for popping by and as always I love to read any comments you are kind enough to leave.
