Enjoy the Moment !

Perhaps her moody face would not encourage you to 'Enjoy The Moment' but she is a Zetti stamp after all and you know what they are like.

The card was made from a 5 x 5 inch plain white card blank.  I have covered the card with a couple of pieces of printed paper.  The striped bit on the left has a flock finish.

Onto this I have stuck some paper which has been diecut with a frame in the middle, made from more patterned paper.

The central plate was stamped in black Memento ink and selectively coloured with Marvey alcohol ink pens.  Black faux gems were adhered to the corners of the frame and it was mounted on foam pads in the middle.

Last but not least was the sentiment which again was stamped in Memento ink on white card, edged and trimmed out before mounting on more foam pads.

We Three Trees !

Another Christmas card I have made.  The base card is made from pealised cream card.  I have matted a piece of striped paper onto this as the background.


The trees and sentiment plate (PaperArtsy) were stamped in black Versafine on some plain white card and trimmed out.  The trees were stuck in place onto the striped paper mat and a few hills drawn with a fine Micron pen to ground the trees.  These were infilled in places with a gold metallic pen. 

The wordplate was embellished with some Stickles glitter glue and applied as shown on foam pads. This one can be entered into the Less is More Challenge for week 198 whose theme is 'More than one Tree'.

Just for You !

Just crafted this card using stamps and collage elements.  The white card blank is 5 x 5 inches square.

I started by stamping some numeric leaves (Dylusions) in black Versafine ink using a mask so I could overlayer them.

Onto this I have layered printed papers separated by thin Washi tape strips.

I made a word plate with some more paper stamped with the sentiment and applied this on foam pads to finish.

Keep in Touch .......

Here is a simple collaged card I have made.  I used a square Kraft card as the base and collaged on a few elements as shown.

I started with a square of printed text paper. The red chevron band was stamped in red dye ink and trimmed.  The stamped image is one from Zetti and she was stamped in Memento black ink and coloured with Copic alcohol ink markers with her eyes highlighted with a white Posca pen.  She was diecut into a circle and matted on another larger diecut circle in pink.

Finishing touches were to add a paper flower with a little pearl centre and the word plate which has been stamped, trimmed and mounted on foam pads.

Maybe she looks a bit stern but I do love the image !

One layer Christmas !

I have used this tree stamp previously but made another card which fits the requirements for the City Crafter Challenge Blog for week 237 whose subject is 'a one layer Christmas card'

I started with a plain white card blank (4.5 x 4.5 inch) and stamped a chevron stamp (Stampin' Up) several times in a horizontal line with Memento dye inks in purple, orange and green.

The tree and sentiment were stamped in black Memento.

I finished off the tree with some spots of Stickles glitter glue in the centres of the snowflakes.

Monochrome medley

Lots of viewers liked and commented on my monochrome Christmas card made a few days ago so I thought I would have a go at a couple more.

They are very simple to make.

Both are made on 4.5 x 4.5 inch white card blanks and are stamped in Versafine black ink as I think this gives a really dense black coverage when being stamped.


I have stamped a swirly corner stamp 4 times directly on the card to make a frame and then added a printed plate in the middle on foam pads.

The second card again uses a different corner stamp but this time stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with  graphite sparkly embossing powder.

The tree was stamped as shown and the baubles spotted with a silver leaf pen.

The word was stamped on a piece of white card, trimmed out and applied on foam pads.

I think I will be doing more monochrome card this year and they are quite simply done too !
