Hello

In today’s card I have used a floral stamp from Chocolate Baroque, flower dies from Spellbinders and a flourish dies from Sizzix.

I love mask stamping, and stamped the flower in the North, South, East and West positions and then masked each image and stamped in the gaps.

I used my favourite watercolour pencils to shade the flowers.

Hope you have a great weekend.

‘I Love Autumn Leaves’ Bookmark

Hello

I absolutely love this season, it’s so pretty with all the lovely Autumnal colours, so I decided to make myself a bookmark using Spellbinder Leaves dies and Twinchies.

I love this technique of using the negative space. I mounted the ‘waste’ onto another Twinchie, which I had painted with acrylic paint, using foam to highlight the cut.

80th Birthday Card

Hello

I have an 80th Birthday Card today to share which I was commissioned to make.

WP_20140502_016

I cut various dies in co-ordinating shades of pink and made a collection of florals.

WP_20140502_017

I added a lovely background die-cut and various flourishes cut in foam.

WP_20140502_019

Obviously, as its an 80th Birthday Card I added a wire “80” behind the rose…..subtle.

Finally add a butterfly and the card is complete.

Thanks for visiting.

Butterfly and Daisy Collage in Salmon

Hello

I have a card to share today which uses the fabulous Butterfly and Daisy Collage stamp from Chocolate Baroque.

WP_20140408_009

I stamped the image in black ink onto a patterned paper and coloured the butterfly in using watercolours.

I stamped a corner from the same set and used gilding flakes on 2 corners.

For the background I stamped a flourish stamp from my stash onto coordinated coloured card.

WP_20140408_014

I used white watercolour for the Daisy and added highlights to the Butterfly which really finishes the card.

I hope you like it.  Please visit again soon.

Floral Butterfly in Blue

Hello

I have 2 cards to share today on the same theme.

WP_20140117_001

I started by stamping 2 flower stamps in an oval shape by masking the first image.

I then added 2 label dies and a butterfly, together with some punched corner detail.

WP_20140117_003

In the second card I used an alternative label shape, a different corner punch and added some flowers with the butterfly.

I hope you like them.

See you again soon.

Remembrance Day

Hello

I am wearing my poppies today with pride; red and mauve to remember all the soldiers and all the animals too.

Today I would love to share a card I made using stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

WP_20131110_001

I like this card because my little boy helped make the background for the stamping using the trusty shaving foam technique.

Please come back soon for some more Christmas cards.
