Here is another card made on a Kraft Card Base and cut to make a square card measuring 13.5 cm. This time I have used printed papers in brick red, pink and olive to compliment the Kraft base.
The base layer was machine stitched as a contrast with other pieces layered on top to build the design. The flag bunting is die cut from thin white card and coloured with pink Copic marker with a finishing coat of fine clear glitter added for a bit of bling. This was mounted on foam pads as shown.
The main image of button girl was stamped with Memento black ink and paper pieced with more decorative paper for her pants. The image was coloured with Copics and trimmed and attached on more foam pads. The sentiment was also stamped, trimmed and applied on pads.
Three buttons were tied through with pink jute string and stuck in place with Glossy Accents whilst the blingy faux diamantes were added at the base of the card to finish.
Still thinking about Easter with this card I made. This time I have used a white 12 cm square card blank as the base. Printed 6 x 6 inch papers from the Prima tea-thyme collection are used throughout to make the layers. I really like this collection with its subtle blend of pinks and greens.
The cute bunny stamp is by Alice Palace and is available at Crafty Individuals. This was stamped in Memento tuxedo black ink on some more white cardstock and coloured with Distress Stains in milled lavender, spun sugar & tattered rose before trimming out and adding some gold Posca pen on the crown.
The sentiment plate was trimmed out from the papers and adorned with a gold embossed 'with love' plate. Some fine velvet ribbon was added over a strip of paper to display the plate.
The green plate behind the bunny was die-cut and embossed through my Big Shot and coloured with a mixture of peeled paint and shabby shutters Distress Stain. The embossed spots were treated to some more Posca gold. All mats and components were then assembled (some on foam pads) and some dots of wild plum Adirondack dimensional acrylic added to finish.
Here's hoping that you are indeed 100% Happy this coming Easter. This card started life as a square Kraft card blank and was decorated with printed 6 x 6 papers from the Alla-Prima collection.
I stamped the little angel with Memento tuxedo black and trimmed her out. I then stamped her again on the spotty paper and trimmed out just the dress which I layered over the original image. She was then coloured with Copic markers and her wings were glittered with Ice Stickles.
I then used a variety of papers and diecut, guillotined and shaped them to make the background oval plate the flowers and various mats and a swirl.
The flowers were edged in spiced marmalade Distress Ink and put together in layers with spotty brads.
The little word plate was stamped on some paper and trimmed out. All components were arranged as shown and applied with double sided adhesive or foam pads. More Ice Stickles was added on the flowers to finish.
Here is my tag for the Easter Tag Competition over on UK Stampers Forum. The one stipulation is that you have to have eggs somewhere on your tag.
I cut the base tag from white cardstock and covered with papers from Kaisercraft (forget-me-not) and My Minds Eye (rosy) 6 x 6 inch paper pads. Gorgeous papers and the floral one also has glazed portions over some of the flowers which does not show on the pic.
I printed out the eggs and the dictionary definition on the printer and trimmed and mounted them on more cardstock from the pads. I used a Martha Stewart punch to produce the bottom border out of gold Mirri Card.
The butterfly is a glossy polymer sticker and the letter were stamped onto pale pink card and matted onto green spotty paper.
I used a black Posca pen to edge the tag and add some faux stitches and Distress inks to edge things. I then assembled the components (some raised on foam pads) and added two lengths of green ribbon through a hole cut with a Crop-a-Dile. Finally I added some liquid pearls to finish.

We have a monthly 'naked' postcard swap over on UK Stampers Forum each month and this months theme is an open theme, meaning that anything goes !
I wanted to use a wood mounted stamp (Funstamps - Coffee Girl) I had had for a while so I started by stamping this in Memento tuxedo black ink on plain white cardstock. I trimmed the image out and coloured with Copic markers. The base card was cut to 6 x 4 inches from stout cardstock.
I then used papers from a 6 x 6 stack (Alla-Prima) to produce the background and the two papers are joined in the centre by a die cut strip.
The chandelier is a rub-on and the words are from a set of polymer stamps stamped in Memento ink directly onto the background.
Final assembly was to add a strip of Washi tape from 7 Gypsies, add the image with strong glue and edge the card in ink. Some Stickles glitter glue was added to some circles and flowers and the whole card was sealed with a couple of coats of cheap hair lacquer to protect it in the post.
I love the whimsical stamp too, but wonder whether coffee in bed delivered by her would be to my liking !!
I have just completed a set of three ATC's for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum. The theme for this month is 'Everyday Things' and I decided on buttons.
The ATC blanks were cut from thin mountboard to the prescribed 2.5 x 3.5 inches and each was covered in printed paper to make backgrounds. Two blue themed and one sepia themed.
I then used a set of fab stamps from Papertrey Ink to stamp all the other background images in Versafine sepia and Memento onyx black.
I selected buttons from my stash to co-ordinate with the colourway and adhered them with glossy accents, highlighting the buttonholes with blue Stickles glitter glue. I also added a blob of this to highlight the 25c pricepoint on the sepia set.
A little Liquid Pearls in platinum was added on each ATC and when dry each was edged in Distress inks in faded jeans and walnut stain, applied on cut'n'dry foam.
