Hope you've all been enjoying the nice weather, we've got rain here now, such a shame for the Jubilee celebrations..but, nothing we can do about it. Right, although I haven't managed to blog during the week, I have been busy. I've three cards that I'm going to enter into challenges, so see what you think!
This one is probably for my grand-daughter, unless I get inspired by something else. Wanted to make a really girly card with this image - Positively Pampered by LOTV, really love this one. Firstly I die cut a white square card blank using Anya's Corner die by Marianne. Then backed the front with a strip of pink card. Used three different backing papers, and layered them, then added some fine glitter to show through the corners. Cut a Tim Holtz Distressed Doilly, inked it lightly, and added that. Stamped the image and coloured with Promarkers, added various different types of bling, and then cut it out with a Nestie Scalloped Oval. Added some fluffy stuff around the edge, and glittered the edge of the oval, and mounted onto Doilly. Stamped two sentiments, matted onto matching shape, and added. Finished with organza ribbon from Joanna Sheen and Handy Hippo, fastened with large brad, flowers from Wild Orchid, pearly butterflies from stash, and a few gems.
Now, this was quite weird! Had finished this card, and was on the way to the kitchen to photo, as the light is better, and as I walked into the living room, this fox cub was sitting on the bank outside, looking at me! Well, I thought it was a bit of a coincidence anyway! So, this card has a digi-image from TiddlyInks, who I've only just discovered! This one is called Wryn and Mo- Love You Most. Coloured with Promarkers, wanted to keep to shades of two tones, cut into a square, and then edged it with Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder.Made a Centura Pearl pale blue card blank, and then matted paper from Papermania onto it, then a rectangle of dotty paper from Forever Friends-New Arrival. Edged the mats again with CSEP, and inked with TH Distress Inks. Cut the flower ribbon slider which is from JoyCrafts, inked lightly and attached with ribbon behind it. Added die cut swirls from Sizzix. Finished with flowers from WOC, and crocheted flower with gem in centre. Attached sentiment with plaited cord to look as if hanging, then some glitter and gems.
