I needed to make this card fairly quickly so I decided to use one of my Lili of the Valley toppers. The colours for the C.R.A.F.T. challenge were perfect to use so I made my papers using Craft Artist and colour matching to this pallette.
I used Kraft card and the various papers and then added 3 stars and the sentiment I made in Craft Artist on foam pads to make it pop a little.
Hi everyone! It feels a bit weird posting this card having just watched the Lance Armstrong interview with Oprah. I have a nephew who loved the Olympics and is a fan of cycling. This Lili of the Valley digi was perfect for his birthday card and I made a voucher holder to match.
I think the papers are die cut were from Papermania. Lots of layers and Kraft card which I think can help add to the boy feel. I added background colour to the LOTV die cut by daubing distress inks onto it. I went for a single paper for the inside.
The sentiment stamp is also LOTV- I do love their circular sentiments.
This is the holder I made for the voucher. I clipped the crown and ribbon (recycled from a gift I received) to the voucher to pull it out like a tag.
Hi! I’m still very behind with my blogging- I’ve been crafting but not necessarily getting cards done. This is a girlie birthday card I’ve made. It needed to be posted so had to be quite flat.
I used a LOTV die cut as I was in a rush! I coloured the background using distress ink and also used it to edge the card. The beautiful background paper was from stash and meant I could keep my embellies simple- ribbons, a flower from stash and gem flower and butterflies coloured with my Promarker. I was in such a rush to post this that I only took one photo and forgot to show the matching decoration inside!
I would like to enter this card to the following challenges
I’m finally having time to really get to know my Cougar cutter at the moment. Thanks to everyone over on the forum for their help- in particular big thanks to Gerti and Linda.
This is an anniversary card- hopefully not too girly!! The back layer is a paper from Craft Artist coloured purple. I then cut the frame using textured card with my Cougar and blended Dusty concord distress ink over it. I used a sponge dauber to get more intense colour for the circle in the middle of the frame. I then cut a scalloped square with the Cougar and blended milled lavender around the edges and attached with foam pads.
I then used a LOTV die cut on foam pads. I sponged milled lavender around the background and added Perfect Pearls. I then added some Spray and Shine.You get a lovely shimmer at certain angles but it is difficult to capture in the photo.
I made the paper inside using Craft Artist- I added the cutting files over the backing paper and recoloured them to match. This means the inside matches but it is flat and doesn’t use so much paper!!
I guess I ought to get started on the odd Christmas card. I’m feeling a bit under the weather so I made this quickly using scraps left from Christmas and an LOTV die cut. I kept it quite simple and flat to help with postage. Iused some glimmer mist on the doily.
It’s not Christmas without some stickles on the image!
This is my birthday card for a gardener. It was inspired by the photo for The Stamping Boutique challenge.
I love gardening (although it’s not much fun trying to do it in the rain at the moment. I especially like when you’ve done some gardening and you can relax and enjoy a cup of tea out there!
I inked the edges of the card with distress ink. I created the background paper using Craft Artist.
I used a Lili of the Valley die cut and coloured the background and tree with Distress Inks. I used a LOTV sentiment.
In keeping with the theme I added twine and a mini metal trowel I found.
I fancied a bit of a change so had a look for some Christmas inspiration in the challenges! I’m a bit tired so I used a Lili of the Valley die cut.
I made the Silent Night paper on craft artist. I went for shiny papers for the layers and also for the punched snowflakes. I blinged up the snowflakes and added snowflake gems as well. I stickled the edges of the die cut for some more sparkle!!
I’d like to enter the following challenges (thanks to everyone who runs challenges- they really help to keep the inspiration going!).
Happy Easter everyone!
This is an Easter basket- I found it a little difficult making it for a boy so I hope it is manly enough!
I used Lili of the Valley pictures free with a mag. They are so cute! I coloured them with Pro and flexmarkers. I wanted bright Spring colours combined with two images to show the changeable April weather! April showers and April sun.
