I’ve been playing with the Memory Box Ornament Border die to make this card. Such a simple design, but I thought it looked quite effective. I’ve used a pearlescent silver and gold cardstock and cut the border alternately in each colour cardstock. Keep all the little baubles that cut out as you can use them for other projects! (more…)
Today’s card features the Woodware Patch Robin Stamp. I was inspired by all the fabulous samples of this card I’ve seen to have a go with him myself.
I picked out a couple of backing papers (both are in stock in the shop) and stamped my robin on plain white cardstock, as well as the papers. (more…)
This is another card idea I created on Saturday. I had some lovely ladies watching who were keen on creating cards with their dies, so we cut out a few dies and had a play to create this design. (more…)
I had a lovely day on Saturday demonstrating Christmas card ideas in the shop and I will be sharing the cards I made over the next few days with you.
My first card features the Ribbon Tree Peel-off sticker. This lovely Woodware sticker is a nice easy design to colour. I’ve coloured it with a mix of Sakura gel pens – some sparkly, some not. (more…)
Today’s stamp is from IndigoBlu – Winter Wonderland – this lovely forest of trees has beautiful snowflake details. I stamped the design using Flitterglu and then applied Mica Powders – I’ve used Cosmic Shimmer Antique Gold, Green and Blue. (more…)
A lovely elegant Christmas card today. This has been cut out using one of the beautiful Sue Wilson Dies – the French Collection – Provence. I’ve backed it onto a traditional Christmas green shade and stamped and embossed Seasons greetings in the centre. (more…)
Today’s card has been created using the free stamps from the latest issue of Creative Stamping. This lovely fireplace with holly on the top creates a cosy image of Christmas.
I started by stamping and embossing the fireplace, and separately the mouse and the stocking. I stamped and embossed the greeting directly on the card. (more…)
Back with another FlitterGlu and Flakes card again today. Working again with the IndigoBlu Connors Crown Jewels stamp that I’ve worked with the flitterglu and the Winter Dawn metal leaf flakes. This time I worked my Distress Ink (Festive Berries and Peeled Paint) onto my non stick craft mat and spritzed with a little water. I then swiped my flaked design into the ink. Once dry I added a little more colour here and there with cut n dry and the same inks. (more…)
Today’s card is made using the Woodware Sprig of Holly Stamp (now back in stock!). This time I have worked my zentangle patterns using the coloured Sakura Micron Pens. You can work quite simple patterns but they look so effective in the different colours. The patterns I’ve used today are really simple and quick ones to do, so don’t be daunted to have a go at zentangling – you don’t need to do the really complicated patterns to make it look good! (more…)
Christmas design today. I’ve been playing with the IndigoBlu Connors Crown Jewels stamp along with flitterglu and flakes. I’ve used Winter Dawn. I stamped the baubles onto white cardstock and the dinkie merry christmas onto black card.
Next I have applied Distress Ink – Seedless Preserves and Dusky Concord using cut n dry foam and mounted it onto a black border.
My background card started as plain lilac card and I’ve stamped using purple Archival and Dusky concord distress ink with the IndigoBlu Large Snowflake and small holly stamp. The die cut border is the Tessatina border from Memory box.
This card is one of the samples for the Flitterglu and Flakes Christmas card workshop I will be holding on 9th October – click here to book your place and I’ll show you another sample idea later this week.
I won’t be blogging daily this week – it will be on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday as I’m having a few days on holiday with my lovely hubby!
but… it’s off to the trade show tomorrow first – much excitement to see some of my favourite brands and what new goodies they have to offer!
