Sunflowers and Lillies in Yellow

Hello

Today’s card is similar to a journal page I did recently, which I thought would translate nicely into a card, so I had a play.

I stamped the image to form a circle and coloured using alcohol markers.

To make it a card I added a large lily die-cut in the centre, which I added detail with alcohol markers.

Christmas Reindeer Trio

Happy Christmas

I have left my most favourite till last.  This one uses a lovely set of stamps from one of my favourite syppliers – Hobby Art.

I uses alcohol markers to colour the reindeers and robin and watercolours for the background.

I added a few holly leaves and wire work as embelishments.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Fancy Butterfly Mixed Media

Hello

I have some mixed media to share today which started as a piece of cereal box card before being covered in shades of yellow, orange and pink acrylic paint.

I created various layers using stamps with ink and embossing powders and masks with acrylic paint.

I stamped the butterfly stamp from Hobby Art in black and layered the same image in pink vellum on top. A few jewel embellishments make the perfect body.

I added 2 more card layers using the same stamps and embossing powder with a corner punch and further paper pricking detail.

I hope you like it.

Reminded of 1st ATC Swap I did

Hello

I was recently sorting some photos on my computer into some kind of order when I found a photo of the 1st ATC swap I entered into, which was quite some time ago now and I thought I would share.

The theme was floral and I used a lovely stamp from Hobby Art.  Obviously I created it in a purple theme and used an Aubergine Ink pad from Stampin Up.

The crochet flower I made myself using a variegated thread.

I really love making ATC’s, they are just enough to task the brain sometimes when a bit of creativity is required.

I hope you like it.

Poppy Card

Hello

I have been using Poppies a lot recently to commemorate the centenary and I couldn’t not use this lovely little stamp from Hobby Arts.

Now a little confession, this card is not stuck down yet as I couldn’t decide how to lay it out.  Here are my options….

OR

I would love to hear any comments as I’m a little stuck.

Anyhow, I just love this stamp, which I have coloured here using Alcohol Markers.

Have a great day.

Blue Daisies

Hello

I have another daisy card today.  I love this stamp from Hobby Art.

WP_20140716_016

I stamped in black and coloured in using pencils.  I then chalked the background with shades of blue and green and overstamped in co-ordinating colours various stamps including a flourish, texture and text.

A Sizzix die cut flourish and Spellbinder Bitty Blossoms just finish the card off.

Sunflower Twinchie Card

Hello

Well it’s the first day of the summer holidays and there is nothing more summery than a sunflower, so here is a card made using a stamp from Hobby Art.

WP_20140716_079

I made a sunflower twinchie a while ago, here is the original post if you missed it; http://wp.me/p385yc-hy.  I made a further one to make into a card.

WP_20140716_031

I used the Paisley Embossilicious Embossing Folder for the background and a scrap of co-ordinating ribbon.

I hope you like it.

Purple Daisies

Hello

I have another purple card today…..Ooops!

I used a lovely daisy stamp from Hobby Arts to create the main topper and a Shrink Plastic decoration.

WP_20140627_029

I then used the same stamp to create the collage background sections, both made in the same way but different sizes.

WP_20140627_020

I stamped the daisy randomly and at strange angles and masked each one off.  I then filled in the background area with other stamps including a flourish, a flower, a text and a texture stamp.

WP_20140627_021

I used a Celtic spellbinder die and various flower shapes in contrasting colours to make the embellishments.

WP_20140627_027

The final addition of some crochet flowers I had made in a variegated thread finishes the centres of the flowers lovely.

Thanks for visiting.  Hope to see you again…
