Let's Celebrate


Today's card is for our a nephew. I had this sunburst laying on my desk and have struggled to use it. After buying a new birthday die at the craft show last week I was hoping I could use it and make my card work with the sunburst. I must admit, I'm quite happy with the end result.

Framed Flowers


I really like poppy flowers so I can see this new stamp set becoming a favourite. I mixed it up and coloured them different colours and then framed them for some added interest. I seem to have a thing for frames lately....? Added my sentiment and some sequins to finish it off.

Someone Special


It's been a while since I have stamped images with my coloured inks but Jackie Aitken's card caught my eye on Pinterest so I have cased it. I've stamped and fussy cut my images, drawn on dotted lines for interest and then dry embossed the base card. I've then layered my cards and finished it off with a sentiment.

Musical Birthday


I made today's card for our son who has a birthday coming up in a couple of weeks. He likes the black & red colour combo so I went with that. I stamped some music for a background, stamped and fussy cut the guitar, die cut my 'happy' then stamped and coloured my 'birthday' in red and added a couple of red gems for a touch more of colour.

LOVE


I have created today's card for my cousin who is marrying his love next month. I started off with a background that I made with watered down DI's. Before it dried I laid one of my stencils onto it to give it a soft background pattern. I have then die cut a couple of fancy ovals out of gold card, stamped my swans and embossed with gold glitter EP and then stamped again with clear EP and fussy cut them. I did the same for my 'love' sentiment and added a couple of the little stars that were cut out of one of the die cuts.

Quilted Floral Birthday


Today's card was inspired by Yana Smakula. I just love Yana's cards, pop on over to her site for a peek, link is here. I used a blue base card like the card I was casing, this is right out of my comfort zone but I thought, you like Yana's card so just roll with it. I don't have the same stamps so have adapted the design with what I have in my stash. I embossed the blue base card then stamped my 'happy' sentiment in blue and clear embossed it. Coloured some pre stamped flowers that I have been saving for a rainy day and fussy cut them as well as some leaves. Stamped my 'birthday' sentiment on to white card for contrast and added white square pearls on the bottom half of the card for some added interest.

Happy Mothers Day


Hi Stampers, today's card was inspired by Yana Smakula, I just love her cards. Firstly I worked out the placement of my die cut and sentiment. Stamped the sentiment then stamped my assortment of flowers. I then water coloured them with DO's, once they were dry I die cut my 'happy' and die cut it again with mounting tape. A bit didn't cut through properly so I'm not 100% happy but overall I love the end result.

Hello There


Hi All, I felt like going tropical today, since I live in the tropics and had to make a 'zesty' card for a swap. I stamped my sentiment as a focal point, then my leaves in assorted DO greens. I stamped my flower in a bright pink and fussy cut it. Pop dotted it to my card then finished it all off with some green pearls.

Birthday Wishes


I love creating my backgrounds these days so that was the first thing I did. Sponged my card with DO Broken China dried that off, inked it again using Mermaid Lagoon & Blueprint Sketch DO and a stencil. Dried that off then stamped my flowers in contrasting black to make them pop, added a 'birthday' die cut I had sitting on my desk, stamped 'wishes' and added some sequins for a bit of added interest, then pop dotted my top two layers to finish it all off.

Just Because


Today's card was created for a swap group using these colours. I embossed my panel with a new embossing folder I picked up this week then cut white card to fit inside the frame. I then stamped my flowers onto the frame insert, stamped the flowers again on scrap, coloured and fussy cut them, inked the background and adhered my flowers and finished it off with a sentiment.

Birthday Cheer


Today's card is a pretty floral creation. I haven't used this sentiment before even though I have had it a while and look at it regularly :-) 
I die cut my panel with a stitched die, stamped my sentiment, stamped leaves around the sentiment in DI's, stamped my flowers with DI's and fussy cut them. Pop dotted a couple of flowers for added interest and finished off with some tiny pearls.

Keep Your Face to the Sun


Today's card was made for a friends sister who isn't well. They wanted sunbeams to be a part of the card which I must admit was hard for me but I am really happy with the end result. I sponged the rays with DO's & a stencil, die cut my flowers and coloured them with DO's, added a frame, stamped my sentiment, pop dotted the panel and added a few tiny pearls for interest.

Hello There


I made this card for a new stamping friend in the US. I created the background using acetate inking that Karen D posted on her blog - link here - I can see me using this technique a lot! I then stamped my flowers, die cut a 'hello' sentiment out of scrap card on mounting tape and stamped the rest of my sentiment underneath and added a couple of little pearls.
