Love........



Made a Valentines card .....

I started with a 6 x 6 inch white card blank. I then made the background with Distress Oxide washes and stamping with text stamps in Chalk inks.

I then stamped a corner flourish with Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The edges of the background were then stamped in pink Versafine Clair ink with a faux stitch stamp. A piece of torn pink Washi tape was applied diagonally.

I then made the central square ..... I stamped the face (Cherry Pie) on white card with Versafine black ink and trimmed to a 2 inch square. The eyes, lips & face were coloured with sponged Distress Ink and paint markers. The second layer was made from 3 pieces of handmade paper stuck together and trimmed. The last layer was a square of dark pink card. I then die-cut a heart outline from more handmade paper and coloured this as shown.

I then die-cut a heart and stamped with Versamagic chalk ink adding some faux stitching and a flower with a brad.

I heat embossed two images of the word 'Love' with gold embossing powder.

All elements were then assembled as shown with the central panel on foam pads. The background was matted onto dark pink card and applied to the card blank to finish ......

Bit different for Valentines I thought ....

Eyes ......


Made a card after looking through my stamps today .....

I liked the eye stamps so began with a 6 x 6 inch white card blank. I then made a background from distress Oxide inks and water using blues, purples & pink. Once dry it was trimmed to fit the card blank and I used a stencil and Distress Inks in red and purple. this was highlighted with a gold metallic pen before splashing with watered down black Gesso. some stamping with black Versafine  with a mesh stamp was done and a couple of strips of torn purple spotty Washi tape were added.

I then stamped the eyes with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. They were coloured with a Distress Ink wash, trimmed out and mounted on a piece of black card. Some gold dots were added and a highlight in the eye with white Posca pen was added.

I then stamped the Hibiscus (AAll & Create) in versafine black in on white card and coloured with watercolours before trimming out.

The word was made from Washi Tape (AAll & Create) which was added to white card, edged in black and matted on metallic gold card.

The card was then assembled .... The eyes added on the right as shown, the hibiscus mounted on foam pads and the word added as shown. The completed background was then matted on black card and applied to the card blank to finish .....

Love the vibrancy of the colours in this card .....

Love ......


Made another Valentine suitable card .....

I used a 5 x 5 inch white card base. I then cut a smaller matt from watercolour card and coloured it with pink watercolours .... allowing it to dry completely before edging with gold Krylon pen. This was then applied to the card front.

I stamped the heart (Chocolate Baroque) in glamourous Versafine Clair ink on white card and heat embossed with clear embossing powder before trimming out and selectively colouring some of the design with a gold pen.

I then used some fine metallic gold thread and placed this behind the heart which was mounted on foam pads as shown. I then die-cut some mini hearts and applied to the card front.

The 'Love' (PaperTrey Ink) was stamped in more Versafine Clair on white card, heat embossed as before, trimmed and edged with black ink and applied as shown to finish the card ......

Heart ......


Made a card which could be used for Valentines day .....

I used a 5 x 7 in white card blank. I then cut  a matt from cream watercolour card and into this die-cut a square stitched edge aperture. I then die-cut a red heart from red flock card and applied onto the cut-out.

I then used a score-board and scored 4 lines through the aperture. The watercolour layer was added and the square with heart added on foam pads.

I then die-cut a number of leaves in white and cream card, arranging these as shown under the square. A little crystal Stickles glitter glue was added on a couple of the leaves. I also added some liquid pearl dots in Champagne.

The card was finished with a love stamp in black archival ink as shown ....

Forest .....




Made a card for a Challenge with a prize over on UK Stampers Forum in the theme of 'A Walk In The Forest' .....

The card base is a white 6 x 6 inch blank. The background was made with Acrylic paints, a variety of stencils and a leaf stamp with Archival ink. I have used Posca markers to highlight areas and applied some torn spotty Washi tape. The base was then matted onto some black card to form a border.

I then stamped a tree and sentiment from Crafty Individuals in Versafine black ink on white card. They were heat embossed with clear embossing powder and trimmed out. The trees were then coloured with Distress ink washes before attaching to the base on foam pads. There are a few clear glass cabochons scattered about on Glossy Accents. The sentiment was edged with black ink and stuck in place on the card.

The base was then applied to the card front to finish .....

Fish Earrings .....







 

More shrink-plastic earrings of cute fish wearing hats ......

This time using another cute stamp from Crafty Individuals .....

The stamps was inked with black Stazon and stamped onto white shrink plastic after gently sanding the stamped side.

I used Faber Castell Polychromos pencils to do the colouring and punched a hole with the Crop-a-dile in the top fine to take the split ring. They were then shrunk with a heat gun.

These earrings are available to buy in my Etsy Shop and on Ebay ......

The earwires are silver plated......
