Love card

Here's my post for today

This is my take on the designs that l have seen of Leonie's on Create and Craft, cut the word out using my Scan N Cut using some masking paper, l then placed it where l wanted it and then stamped the flowers, leaves and swirls....after removing the mask it gives this brilliant effect, 1 l will be doing again. This card was finished off by matting and layering onto an A5 landscape card.....thanks for stopping by and would be lovely if you could leave your comments....

Now here's something really different
I thought l would show you some of my parchment work, and not by using the Groovi system....The background was embossed in the two opposite corners and a little pearl gilding wax added too. The main image l made using a parchment grid, perforated and embossed the chosen designs, l then made the two butterflies and added them too. Finished off by adding some small pearls within the centre.
Hope you have enjoyed this change, look forward to reading your comments, thanks.

Flight of Butterflies

Here's my post for today....
This is my take on a card that was made recently at Berkeley Gardens, by Hazel Eaton.
I chose to use the shades of purple, starting with white card, ran through and embossed using the butterfly folder, then applied black soot onto the folder and ran through again, this gave the darker background, l then inked over the embossed area with Faded Lilac, and once dried used a little gilding wax to highlight....finished off by attaching the die cut butterfly.
I do hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, please leave any comments, Thank You.

Balloons card

Hi, this is my chosen card for todays post......
This was made recently at a workshop at Sunrise Crafts, designed by Bhanu.....
The main card started off by folding as in a A5 portrait card and then folded the front in half again.
The backgrounds were used from on of Heartfelt Creations pads....the main image was made by using one of Poppy stencils, ran through to emboss and then coloured using distressed inks, taking care to not colour over each other, using paper to mask off. These were all then matt and layered to complete the card....Thanks for stopping by and l look forward to reading your comments.

Dragonfly card

Hi, here's my post for today....
For this one l chose one of Toni Arthurs digi-stamps, and decided to on the colours of black and white, l do love the simplicity of black and white.

Coloured the dragonfly and decoupaged that. Matt and layered as shown in the photo and added the white card candy to finished off....a card for any occasion.

Linda's Birthday

This is my chosen card for today's post......
I made this card for one of my very best friends birthday, as her birthday has already passed it is now o.k. for me to post.......
The card itself was made as a tri-fold card with the front having an aperture cut out of it....The collection that l used was from the Heartfelt range of both stamps and dies, namely Cascading Fuchsia's. I stamped and coloured the main image on the inside and then l made the 3D flowers and arranged them around the top of the aperture that was decorated with the frame cut from one of Tattered Lace dies....Just to say she loved and has made one for a relative herself.
Thank you for visiting my blog, please leave me your comments.
