Always Being There .....




A clean and simple card from me today.  This meets the weekly challenge No. 275 over on the Less Is More Blog which asks us to make a CAS card using pastel colours. I started with a white 5 x 5 inch card blank and die-cut a slightly smaller matt using a square stitched edge die out of more white card.





Onto this I stamped two bears from Crafty Individuals using Memento black ink.  This was then selectively coloured with pastel alcohol ink markers.

I added a touch of Glossy Accents on the noses and eyes of the cute bears.  The matt was applied on the card front using foam pads for relief.




The sentiment (Inkadinkadoo) was stamped on more white card with Versafine black ink, trimmed and edged with ink before adhering onto the card as shown.

Craft Stamper Magazine has a Take It Make It Challenge in the theme of 'Anything Goes'  for May so this fits the bill.

Crafty Individuals also have a challenge for the Month whose title is 'Anything Goes' so this uses one of their cutest stamps as the focal point on this card.

Simples !!

Birdie Birthday




Here is a CAS card made to meet the weekly challenge over on the Less is More blog No.274 whose theme is to 'Use Designer Paper in a CAS Style'.

I have used a 5 x 7 inch white card base onto which I drew a fine black wavy line with a 0.05 micron pen.  This was to be the wire.




I then chose a Martha Stewart bird punch which has a set of outline stamps to go with it.  I first stamped in Versafine black ink onto papers chosen from Graphic 45 (Steampunk Spells 6 x 6 inch papers) which I then punched out.

The birdies were then adhered onto the 'wire' as shown and a dot of diamond Stickles glitter glue added over the eye of each one.





The Happy Birthday stamp is from Happy Little Stampers and again this was stamped directly onto the card in Versafine black ink to finish.

Krafty Triangles three !



Day 3 of the triangle card variants.  I started with a 4.5 x 4.5 inch Kraft card base.  The triangles were cut from coloured card in purple/pink/mauve colours.  A strip of dark pink card was trimmed into a strip and adhered behind the triangles which were mounted on foam pads as shown.




The sentiment (Stampin'Up) was stamped in Versafine black ink to finish.

Krafty Triangles one !



I made three variations on a theme using a 4.5 x 4.5 inch Kraft card in each case.  This is the first, the others will follow over the next 2 days.

I cut some triangles from coloured card in 3 different purple/mauve/pink colours, these were stamped with a heart (Stampin' Up) in grape jelly Memento ink.




A piece of triangle Washi tape was adhered across the card front.  Fine lines were drawn in black Micron pen and the triangles mounted on foam pads as shown.

The sentiment (Stampin' Up) was then stamped in Versafine black ink to finish.

Happy Birthday .......



I made this birthday card using a 5 x 5 inch square white card base. I then trimmed a matt from pale green card and stuck a trimmed Gelli plate background I had previously made using acrylic paints and a stencil onto this.




The ribbon was made from purple satin ribbon and adhered over the mat with red line tape.




The sentiment and heart (Stampin' Up) were stamped on white card with Memento grape jelly dye ink.  This was trimmed and mounted on foam pads over a piece of mauve hammered card.

3 pearlescent cabochons were added on the ribbon to finish.
