Wedding Card

Here is a wedding card that a friend asked me to make for her niece. She wanted it all in white and gold. I made an easel card with a pocket on the front. The tag in the pocket has their initials on it and a picture of them both. I used some glitter vellum to fold over the pocket front for a bit of dimension. The only stamp used was the special day one which was embossed in gold.

Tim's Birdcage

I cut the birdcage out of gold card then put it in an embossing folder and ran it through the Cuttlebug. The bird was cut from light brown card. I stamped the bird using the same Tim Holtz stamp that I used on the tags and main card. The flowers and leaf were die cut and the flowers textured with the same embossing folder used on the birdcage.
The birdcage is more flimsy when it's embossed especially with thinner card so if you try it be careful when removing it from the folder.

Birthday Easel Card

The image was stamped in onyx Versafine ink and embossed in detail clear. I did a little paper piecing to incorporate the background papers. The fringing was done using a Martha Stewart punch. The flowers, some die cut and some punched were put in an embossing folder and run through the Cuttlebug to add some texture.

These are my latest ATC's for the monthly swap on a group I belong to. I've used a selction of stamps and inks on each one.

The image on this card is Stella from The Greeting Farm. I've stamped using Versafine onyx black ink and used clear detail to emboss. Coloured with Promarkers and layered using nesties.

Too Long Away As Usual

Will I ever post to my blog on a regular basis? Why I find it so difficult I'll never know, weeks seem to pass so quickly these day.

Here is a simple card using some of the new distress ink colours and a stamp from Elusive Images. It's stamped in white and then coloured with the inks. The wording is from an old PSX set.

Sitting Pretty

I've been laid low with a virus, it took a week to get back to feeling human again. How do I pick these things up when I hardly leave the house?

Today my card was stamped in black versafine and embossed in detail clear. Coloured in with Promarker pens. I usually pick any card and designer paper I'm using first so that I don't spend hours looking for paper to match. The stamps used to be made by Time To Stamp but are now sold by I Brake For Stamps. The greeting is from a clear set by Woodware and was stamped in Brilliance pearlescent rust ink.
