I created the digital backgound paper featureing a lace ribbon, strings of pearls, glitter and diamond and pearl embellishments. I colour matched these for the ODB challenge. I created a mathing paper for the inside.
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges. Please do go over and check out all the wonderful inspiration there.
This card was comissioned for a 40th birthday. The recipient likes Cath Kidson so I went for floral, shabby chic in spring cottage garden colours!
I used a beautiful digital stamp called flower maiden 2 by A Day For Daisies . I coloured her with Promarkers and FlexMarkers and I diligently kept a list of colours I used and put it somewhere safe! (if it ever surfaces I’ll post them!!)
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!
My first use of my Goldie digi from Wee Stamps and designed my background paper on the computer. I added the Time to Relax sentiment stamp by Lili of the Valley to a pearl. I inked the edges of the card with China Blue Distress ink.
I’ve just got Flexmarkers so I decided to colour using only Flemarkers!!
There were so many inspirations for this picture including the person it is for and these wonderful challenge photos (challenge detail at end of post). The pictures inspired my colours, flowers and swirls!
This is my creation with some words of wisdom.
I made the backing paper using Craft Artist and printed it out. I added some stickles to the clouds, butterflys and swirls.
I added glossy accents to my rain drops I’d designed and also to the beads hanging from my banner.
I used pearl and pink pearlescent ink to paint the edges of the petals on my flowers (which are from Wild Orchid Crafts). I added some pearl accents to my swirls.
I used a MS butterfly punch and curled the wings. I placed a couple of pearls in the middle.
Another Christmas card to add to the collection! I was inspired by this challenge photo from Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long and used the colours and bauble idea. I also picked up ideas from other challenges in my embellishments and papers.
Papers and embellishments etc on them are from Little Mittens Nitwit collections. The cute little mittens have buttons on them and I changed all the colours to match.
I love the button- it was one that I don’t really want to part with!!
Yep it’s my first attempt at a tri-fold card. Many thanks to the Top Tip Tuesday team for the great tutorial and inspiring DT cards. I’m really happy with this card as I managed to use lots of freebies from my stash so it was inexpensive but doesn’t look it!
I’ve used a Lili of the Valley die cut with lots of added stickles and also glossy accents on the robins and poinsettas. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I added stickles TIP: It is easier to put stickles on your craft mat and catch the edges of the petals in it rather than applying the stickles direct (I find I use less this way too!)
The robbins, holly leaves, pressies and trees are all chipboards from a Forever Friends set free with a magazine and the papers were also magazine freebies.
I bought this Lili of the valley stamp for Christmas cards and wrapping etc for some of the boys in my family. They are all into Harry Potter so I thought it would be appropriate. This is the first card I’ve made with the stamp.
I inked the edges of the card with red distress ink and added platinum perfect pearls. I made the papers and sentiment on the computer using owls and stars as themes.
I added glitter to the red card around the sentiment. I added some red star embellies.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and used stickles around the edge and on the image. I also used perfect pearls on the top of the colouring to give some shimmer.
