Made a rather pink decorated tag for a swap on UK Stampers Forum ....

I started with tag blank and collaged a number of decorative papers as shown onto this base. I have used some gold/pink ribbon, adhesive gems, stickles glitter glue & a paper flower with a pearl centre to embellish the tag.

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark & heat embossed with white embossing powder, trimmed out and matted onto pink card before applying on foam pads. The whole tag is edged with pink Versamagic chalk ink and threaded through with some decorative trim to finish.

Fragile Heart ....

Here is a card I made called 'Fragile Heart' .  I started with a 5 x 7 inch white textured card-blank as the base and cut a matt 4.5 x 3.5 inches from more white card.  This was then stamped using a Stampers Anonymous grungy background stamp multiple times in Impress Dye Ink (Ultramarine, Pale Aqua, Indigo Blue, Lavender & Celeste Blue)  more ultramarine was added around the stamped matt using cut'n'dry foam.

The black and white chevrons were made by covering white card with Washi tape and trimming to shape with the paper trimmer.  These were then applied over the stamped matt on foam pads to form a rectangle.

I then die-cut hearts and arrows in Blue and Lime card and applied over the chevrons as shown.

The matt was stuck in place and a Stampers Anonymous word was stamped as shown in Black Vesafine ink with another blue heart next to it.

I would like to enter this card in the Country View Challenges January 2020 Challenge whose topic is Love  .....

Opposites .....

Here is a simple 'opposites' card design made for a 'Just One Stamp' Challenge over on UK Stampers Forum. There are 12 crafters in a group and they post their stamp to each of the members .... make something using the stamp and then send on.

Great to see each persons crafty interpretation using their stamp.

I used turquoise and dark pink card 50/50 for the background, die-cut a frame from Kraft card, backed the frame in black card and mounted the coloured panel over the frame with foam pads.

The flowers were stamped in Archival black ink onto the same coloured card, trimmed out and mounted on more foam pads as shown. The flowers were highlighted with gold pen and the sentiment stamped in Versafine black ink.
