Floral thank you …

Hello Reader;

Today i am sharing with you a card made with one of Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration items, that were on offer this year.  I really liked this set its one where you can build dimension with different shading by using the three different stamps for the flower head.  I like to have a lot of thank you cards handy for when i need them. This one was so quick to replicate quickly.

Hello Reader;

The card i am sharing with you today takes a little bit of time but i think its worth it 🙂 I started by layering up the background stamp elements in a collage-style.  Then i stamped the flower image twice on another piece of card and i water coloured it with my inkpads.  I then fussy cut it twice and layered up the images in a decoupage way picking out the main stem of the flower. I then added the greeting and matted and layered the panel on to the card base

Balloons for you…

Hello Reader,

Quick card for you today, the patterned paper {DSP} is from Stampin’ Up! and i simply mounted it on a coordinating layer of cardstock stamped and punched the greeting and did the same.  Then mounted onto a simple white base – from Stampin’ Up they have their lovely smooth whisper white cardstock in a ‘thick’ version now which is great for making card bases – i then finished off with a rhinestone.

Hello Reader;

Today’s card is a simple coloured stamped image on a pre-made notecard base, I like to keep a small stock of these notecards so that i can make small cards quickly.  The image is from Penny Black and i have coloured it using spectrum noir pencils and then blended with fluid and stumps, then quickly mounted on to a notecard base.

Bicycle Letter set …

Hello Reader;

I have a few pen pals who i write to regularly, and i find it very hard to find nice writing paper that doesn’t cost a fortune so i decided to stamp my own.  I just used printer paper and stamped the bicycle image then coloured it with coloured pencils.  I repeated that on to a second sheet and then on to the envelope.  I think i will make some more in the future as it means if i write more than i have paper, i can just quickly stamp another sheet, and it can be any theme i feel like at the time.

Flower Fields treat box …

2016-03-02 12.28.28

Hello Reader;

Today i am sharing a treat box that i made to fill with sweets.  I kept it very simple; it is a bakers box die cut in crumb cake and stamped in black ink.  I topped it off with some mint lace ribbon and a circle of vellum and card stock with the greeting on.  To hold the box closed i used a tiny bull dog clip that i found in my stash.

Hello Reader;

I’m sharing another scrapbook layout with you today.  It seems i have two styles when it comes to scrapbooking either mad clashing patterns or lots of white space and this one fell in the white space camp.  I used a stencil to sponge some circles to start with and then used a paint splat stamp to add some splotches.  I used some scraps of paper from another layout behind the picture and stamped the title. I finished off with some gems and enamel dots.
