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.
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.
Bright and cheery citrus colours are the basis for this birthday card. Started with a white 5 x 5 inch card base and I have used Washi tape and die-cuts to produce a rosette flower all held together with a brad.
The sentiment is stamped in Versafine black ink using a Papertrey Ink stamp. The plate was raised on foam pads.
There you have it, sure it will brighten someones day !
Well I think you will all agree ' Spring has Sprung' finally, with gorgeous daffodils out in their full Spring glory.
I decided to make this little card to celebrate the season. I used Beth Hughes stamps from a 'Seasons' series. I first stamped the daffodils image in black Memento ink on white card, trimmed it out and coloured with Alcohol Ink markers. The plate was then edged in more Memento and mounted on foam pads.
The sentiment was again stamped on white card in more Memento black ink, trimmed and edged and a mounted on more foam pads.
Love the clean and simple look on this card and here's wishing you a fantastic Spring !
Everyone loves a bit of bling ! This card was made using a range of teal adhesive tapes. I started with a 6 x 6 inch white card blank. I then cut a smaller matt in more white card. This was then covered with strips of tape - one thin and metallic, one glitter covered, one striped and a metallic spotty one. This pattern was repeated to cover the entire matt.
The matt was adhered to the card front. I then diecut a stitched star out of Black Magic blue coloured core card through the Sizzix Big Shot. I rubbed the black down with fine glass paper to show a little colour through and mounted the star as shown on foam pads.
The sentiment (PaperArtsy) was stamped in black Versafine ink on some white card, trimmed out and also adhered on foam pads to overlap the star.
I started with a 5 x 7 inch topfold white card blank. From another piece of white card I cut a smaller matt and embossed this through a an Indentz leafy vine folder using the Sizzix Big Shot. This was adhered on the card front.
I then stamped a couple of Spring inchie stamps on more white card in Versafine black ink. These were punched out with a 1 inch square punch. I then diecut more larger squares in more white card and layered up the stamped inchies on these using foam pads.
These were adhered over another strip of white card left plain.
The sentiment (Papertrey Ink) was stamped on white card with more Verafine black ink, trimmed out and mounted as shown on more foam pads to finish.
Every now and then we need to say to someone that we think they are sweet. This little card does just that using embossing folders, punches printed paper and stamps.
It all started with a 5 x 7 inch white card base.
This was stamped with a small ISC stamp with Memento rhubarb stalk dye ink around the outer edge.
I then cut another slightly smaller matt from more white card and punched a heart with a dotty edge top left with a Martha Stewart punch. The matt was then embossed through the Sizzix with a swirl embossing folder.
I then chose a printed paper from Stampin' Up and backed the aperture with a piece of this. The embossed matt was then applied centrally on the card on foam pads.
The sentiment is from Uniko and was stamped in Versafine black ink, trimmed, edged with more Memento rhubarb stalk ink and mounted on more foam pads to finish.
