Home .....



Sharing a 'Home' card made recently !

I started with a 4 x 4 inch white card blank and diecut two  matts, one in blue and one in white.  I then stamped the houses in black Memento ink onto the white matt and also stamped a 'spare' set on some more white card from which I trimmed out one of the houses and coloured with Copic  markers before overlaying on foam pads

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine onyx black ink, trimmed and matted on blue card before mounting on more foam pads.

You Shouldn't Have ......


A simple card saying 'Thanks' in a round about way !

I started with a 4 x 4 inch square Kraft base and cut a slightly smaller matt in some daisy patterned paper trying to centralise one of the daisies.

I then cut a stitched edge tag in white card and then cut a star into this with another die.  I then stamped the tag with the sentiment (Inkadinkado) in Versafine onyx black ink before mounting on foam pads with the star over the central daisy.

I added three yellow gems to finish.

Hello, Hello ......



Just to say 'Hello' !!

I made this card from a 5 x 7 inch white card blank base.  I cut a slightly smaller matt in more white card.

I then cut 6 matts using two sizes of stitched edge dies.  I stamped the smaller matts with Versamark ink and a stamp (Inkadinkado) and then heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder.  Once embossed I coloured them using three shades of Distress ink applied with a blender pad and wiped off the ink to reveal the embossed image below.  I added stems with a Micron pen. These were then mounted on the larger square matts and applied as shown on foam pads.

The sentiment was diecut in cream card and stuck in place as shown with three self adhesive gems added to finish.  I think the squares look a bit like they could be leather .... what do you think ?

Sunny Bloom .....


Sharing a card made entirely from die-cuts today.  The bloom and sentiment were diecut from some watercolour card which I have coloured with sunny coloured Brushos.

The remaining matts were cut using various dies and built up on foam pads as shown.

Geometry ? ........



Here's a CAS card using geometrical shapes as the design, in this case hexagons !

I die cut a number of printed papers with a hex die (Stampin'Up).  I then took a 5 x 7 white card blank and cut a slightly smaller matt out of white card.  I arranged the hexagons onto this matt until happy and then stuck them in place.

The decorated matt was then matted onto more printed paper and the design applied to the card front on foam pads.

The sentiment (Inkadinkado) was stamped on more white card in Versafine onyx black, trimmed and applied on more foam pads to finish.

This meets this weeks Challenge over on the 'Less Is More Challenge Blog' whose subject is 'Geometric'

White on White ........



I really find Sympathy cards are very hard to make.

White on White is always a good way of conveying your thoughts and feelings at this difficult time.

I started with a white 5 x 7 inch white card blank.  I then cut a smaller matt and diecut into this with a fern die.  I then used an embossing folder and embossed the matt.  The matt was then applied on foam pads and the fern replaced on central foam pads back into the aperture.

The sentiment (PapertreyInk) was stamped on white card in london fog Memento ink, trimmed out and applied centrally on more foam pads to finish.

Loving you .......



If your wanting to tell someone you love them then this card will hopefully fit the bill !

I started with a 5 x 7 inch white card blank and cut a smaller matt in cream textured cardstock.  I stamped three hearts (Chocolate Baroque) onto patterned papers and hand trimmed these out.  The hearts were edged with hand drawn squiggles with a Micron pen.

I used the black Micron pen to draw three vertical squiggly lines on the right of the matt. and applied the hearts as shown on foam pads.

The 'with love' sentiment was diecut from black card and applied as shown at the base of the matt. Some coloured adhesive pearls were strategically placed and the matt applied to the card front on more foam pads to finish the card.

Dream your dream .....



This is a very minimalist Clean & Simple Card I have crafted.  Unusually I have used a coloured background on this card.

I trimmed some pale pink card and creased into a 5 x 7 inch cardblank.  I then cut a strip in the same card and stamped this with the sentiment in Versafine onyx black ink.  This was mounted on the blank on foam pads.

I cut three strips from some coloured cards and applied these on foam pads as shown.  Finally I added some violet crystal drops to finish.

May Inchies .....



I run a closed Facebook Group called 'UK Stampers Forum' and we have a monthly Inchie Swap where we need to make 6 inchies and Swap with other like minded crafters.

These were made using an acrylic painted background which was then trimmed into 1 inch squares. These were mounted onto some heavy board for strength.  I then stamped some leaves (Uniko) in Versamark Ink and embossed them with two shades of green embossing powder.  The edges of the inchies were then heat embossed in light gold.

I added some tiny gems and some doodling & dots with Posca pens to finish.  If you fancy joining in an Inchie Swap why not join our Forum and take part  CLICK HERE to go to the Forum .... we would love to have you onboard.

Lovely Birthday ......



Here is a simple birthday card made in the CAS style.

I started with a 5 x 7 inch white card blank folded tent style.  I then stamped a number of 'stems' with a stitch stamp (PapertreyInk) in black Archival ink as shown.

I then applied a number of pastel coloured mulberry paper flowers from Prima and finished the centres with self adhesive pearls.

The sentiment was stamped in onyx black Versafine ink, trimmed out and applied on foam pads to finish.
