Bunny Embrace .....


Made a bunnies in the woods folding box card .....

Made with diecuts, coloured card and printed papers.  I also used Copic markers, glitter glue & jewels to decorate. The sentiment is from Papertrey ink and is stamped in Versafine black ink.

Great because it folds flat to put in an envelope for sending !

Circles ......


This is a mailart postcard made for a Swap this month on UK Stampers Forum Facebook Group .... the theme this month is 'Geometric Shapes'

I used a set of Uniko stamps and stamped in archival black on a 6 x 4 inch card base.  I then used a set of pens to colour the images as shown.  The text is made with a label maker.  I also stamped some stars in Versamagic chalk inks and edged the postcard in purple ink to finish.

Starry Moments .....



Made a CAS card for this weeks one layer challenge over on the 'Less Is More Challenge Blog' whose subject is 'Stars'

 

I diecut some stars as masks and applied Distress Oxides over the stars before removing them. I used a fine Micron pen to infill the stars with a squiggly line. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the card in black Versafine ink.  I used an embossing folder to apply some dots on opposite corners to finish.

Stags House .....



Here is a little house made as a standing Christmas decoration ....

I used a die and diecut the house parts from heavy card.  The roof was made from a strip of corrugated board.  The walls were covered in decorative papers before assembly.





The deer was stamped in black archival ink onto Kraft card and diecut.  This was mounted on the front of the house on a foam pad.  The star at the top was diecut and heat embossed in kaleidascope embossing powder.  The decoration was made from twigs, greenery and white cones tied together with natural twine.  A little bow of red gingham ribbon was then added with hot glue and the whole thing attached with hot glue.




The roof was daubed with white acrylic paint before distressing to remove some of the top layer of corrugated.  Finally very coarse glass glitter was adhered on hot glue on the roof and at the base to finish the house .....

Autumn Garden ....


This CAS card was made to meet the challenge over on the Less Is More Challenge Blog whose theme is 'Watercolour' this week .....


I started with a 5 x 7 inch white card blank.  I then stamped the plate in Archival black ink onto watercolour paper.  I then spritzed the image with water and used Distress Inks and a waterbrush to colour it.  Once happy I dried with a heatgun.  The panel was trimmed out and matted onto blue card to add a border.  The same was done with the Sentiment (Beth Hughes) using dark brown Memento Ink and both were added to the card front on foam pads.  I also stamped a couple of open leaves to decorate.
