Geometry ? ........



Here's a CAS card using geometrical shapes as the design, in this case hexagons !

I die cut a number of printed papers with a hex die (Stampin'Up).  I then took a 5 x 7 white card blank and cut a slightly smaller matt out of white card.  I arranged the hexagons onto this matt until happy and then stuck them in place.

The decorated matt was then matted onto more printed paper and the design applied to the card front on foam pads.

The sentiment (Inkadinkado) was stamped on more white card in Versafine onyx black, trimmed and applied on more foam pads to finish.

This meets this weeks Challenge over on the 'Less Is More Challenge Blog' whose subject is 'Geometric'

White on White ........



I really find Sympathy cards are very hard to make.

White on White is always a good way of conveying your thoughts and feelings at this difficult time.

I started with a white 5 x 7 inch white card blank.  I then cut a smaller matt and diecut into this with a fern die.  I then used an embossing folder and embossed the matt.  The matt was then applied on foam pads and the fern replaced on central foam pads back into the aperture.

The sentiment (PapertreyInk) was stamped on white card in london fog Memento ink, trimmed out and applied centrally on more foam pads to finish.

Loving you .......



If your wanting to tell someone you love them then this card will hopefully fit the bill !

I started with a 5 x 7 inch white card blank and cut a smaller matt in cream textured cardstock.  I stamped three hearts (Chocolate Baroque) onto patterned papers and hand trimmed these out.  The hearts were edged with hand drawn squiggles with a Micron pen.

I used the black Micron pen to draw three vertical squiggly lines on the right of the matt. and applied the hearts as shown on foam pads.

The 'with love' sentiment was diecut from black card and applied as shown at the base of the matt. Some coloured adhesive pearls were strategically placed and the matt applied to the card front on more foam pads to finish the card.

Dream your dream .....



This is a very minimalist Clean & Simple Card I have crafted.  Unusually I have used a coloured background on this card.

I trimmed some pale pink card and creased into a 5 x 7 inch cardblank.  I then cut a strip in the same card and stamped this with the sentiment in Versafine onyx black ink.  This was mounted on the blank on foam pads.

I cut three strips from some coloured cards and applied these on foam pads as shown.  Finally I added some violet crystal drops to finish.

May Inchies .....



I run a closed Facebook Group called 'UK Stampers Forum' and we have a monthly Inchie Swap where we need to make 6 inchies and Swap with other like minded crafters.

These were made using an acrylic painted background which was then trimmed into 1 inch squares. These were mounted onto some heavy board for strength.  I then stamped some leaves (Uniko) in Versamark Ink and embossed them with two shades of green embossing powder.  The edges of the inchies were then heat embossed in light gold.

I added some tiny gems and some doodling & dots with Posca pens to finish.  If you fancy joining in an Inchie Swap why not join our Forum and take part  CLICK HERE to go to the Forum .... we would love to have you onboard.

Lovely Birthday ......



Here is a simple birthday card made in the CAS style.

I started with a 5 x 7 inch white card blank folded tent style.  I then stamped a number of 'stems' with a stitch stamp (PapertreyInk) in black Archival ink as shown.

I then applied a number of pastel coloured mulberry paper flowers from Prima and finished the centres with self adhesive pearls.

The sentiment was stamped in onyx black Versafine ink, trimmed out and applied on foam pads to finish.

Mainly black ......



Here is a monochrome friendship card made in the CAS style and it fits the bill for the That's Crafty Challenge blog whose theme is 'Back to Black'

I started with a black 5 x 7 inch card blank and cut a white matt slightly smaller and applied to the card front.  Next I cut another smaller matt and embossed this with a spots embossing folder.

I then used more dies and cut leafy sprigs which I appled onto the black matt.  I then took more black card and stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed the sentiment (Woodware) with white embossing powder.

This was trimmed and shaped as a banner and was applied on foam pads as shown.  Two black adhesive gems were added to finish the card.

Thinking .....



Here is a CAS card made mainly with Kraft card !  I always think that kraft adds a sort of rustic, earthy and packaging look to whatever it is used on.

I took a 5 x 5 inch square Kraft card base and cut with a die another slightly smaller matt with a stitched edge die through the Sizzix Big Shot.

I then used a hexagon die and cut three apertures in this matt as shown.  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder & the matt was then adhered on foam pads onto the card base.

Three small hearts were diecut from some teal design paper and adhered in the apertures on foam pads to finish.

Glitzy Stars .....


Made another CAS card, this time with Stars and circles !

I started with a 5 x 7 inch white card blank.  Then I diecut a number of circles in white card in two different sizes and then diecut stitched stars into the circles.  I then cut more circles in different colours of glitter board to match the size of the original circles.

I laid out the glitter circles, adhering them when happy with the layout and overlaid with the star cutouts on foam pads.

The sentiment (PapertreyInk) was stamped in black Versafine ink onto more white card, trimmed and applied on more foam pads to finish the card.
