Hello ......


Made a card with mainly die-cuts today ....

The black circle was die-cut and decorated using a Gelli plate print with bubble wrap .... it was edged in orange Versamagic Chalk ink. I then die-cut some flowers and the word from some printed paper.

The flowers were assembled and finished with an orange adhesive gem intheir centres. I added a piece of torn Washi tape and stuck the work in place (edging with white Posca pen). The butterfly (My Favourite Things) was stamped and die-cut and applied as shown.

The circle was mouted on a square mat of orange card and subsequently on black card to form a border. The panel was then applied on foam pads to the 6 x 6 inch white card base to finish ......

Arch ......


This Gothic Arch Triptych has been made for a Challenge over on UK Stampers Forum .....

The base material is waste food packaging cut to shape using a template and attaching the two sides with adhesive tape at the back. The wings allow for the Triptych to stand for display .....

I have cut some printed weathered wood paper (Crafty Individuals) to shape and applied over the base card. I added some strips of Washi tape on each panel.

I then selected some Lynne Perrella stamps (PaperArtsy), stamped them with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. These were trimmed out and watercoloured with Distress Inks with a waterbrush along with some gold penwork.

The three panels were applied as shown and the three rosettes  on foam pads. I then decorated further with some white Posca lines and black sparkly gems to finish ......

Heartfelt .....


No-one wants to need a card like this but sometimes we have to make one ......

I die-cut a circle from black card and drew the design by hand with Acrylograph pens. I made a frame from brown Kraft card and die-cut a larger circle and mounted this on more black card. This was then applied to the 6 x 6 inch white card blank and some more drawing made in each corner.

The central circle was then applied on foam pads. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink on white card, trimmed and applied centrally on foam pads as shown ........

Seize .....


An Artist Trading Coin made to swap .....

I used re-cycled packaging and die-cut the base covering with some pearlised textured card. I applied texture paste through a diamond stencil and when dry  was then treated with embossing powder and heated to melt.

The butterfly was stamped with Versafine black ink and was heat embossed with clear embossing powder and coloured with Acrylograph pens.

The butterfly was applied with glue and foam pads and the coin edged with blue Versamagic chalk ink.

The printed words were edged in black and applied as shown .....

Happy .....


A cheerful 'Happy Day' clean & simple card .....

I used a 5 x 7 inch white card blank as the base and cut a smaller matt from white card which was matted on black card to leave a thin border.

The butterflies (My Favourite Things) were stamped layered and die-cut in three colourways with Impress, Archival and Versafine black inks. I then die-cut three leafy circles in matching pastel colours to frame the butterflies. These were applied 'off the page' and the butterflies were applied with their wings & antenna shaped for a 3D effect.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink and matted on black card being applied on foam pads. Finally the background was applied to the card blank to finish the card .....

King......


Here is a card made with a striking animal stamp from Crafty Individuals ....

I started by die-cutting a square frame from some of the Crafty Individuals 'Wonderfully Weathered' printed paper and attached this to a piece of white card to the same size. 

I then stamped the lion image twice on white card .... first with Versafine black ink, which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The second image was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with metallic gold embossing powder. I trimmed out the lions face from the black embossed card and fussy cut the whole image from the gold embossed image.

I then coloured both face and mane with watercolours made from Distress Inks and a waterbrush. I used mainly orange and yellow on the mane and antique linen and orange on the face with some blue on the eyes along with a white dot with a Posca marker.

I stamped the KING in black Versafine on white card and trimmed out before edging in black.

The card was assembled with each layer on foam pads to finish ......

Provence ....


Wanted to make something using the typical colours of Provence in France ......

I used a tag base and applied mustard Impress dye ink with a blending tool. I then stamped this with Broken China Distress Oxide using an AAll & Create stamp. I then stamped again on white card with more of the same ink and trimmed out the three crosses which were edged with black ink. I also stamped some star circles in blue and yellow Versafine Clair inks.

I then stamped the sentiment in blue Versafine Clair and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. edging with Posca pen. I then applied three gold star sequins.
