A Smiley Pear

Here is a little card I made using some digi papers from Cosmo Cricket, some diecuts and a bit of stamping and spraying.

The background was printed, trimmed and stuck in place.  I used dies to cut the two oval mats. One in Brown and one with a pear design.  These were layered directly onto the card.

The pear stamp (A Stamp In The Hand) was stamped in Archival sepia ink and trimmed out, then coloured with a lime green alcohol ink pen.  This was mounted on foam pads.  The flower was made from printed cardstock which was die-cut using my Cricut and once assembled was sprayed with Green Dylusions spray.  This was stuck in place at the top of the card.

The mini tag was diecut and stamped with Papertrey Inc stamps and dies.  This was also mounted on foam pads after applying a brad. before colouring with the lime green alcohol ink pen.

The two flourishes were also die cut with a Sizzix die and stuck in place as shown.  Because of the dimension of the flower the card will be packed into a box.  I have entered this into the Simon Says Challenge too !

Isn't it Cool !

Doesn't happen very often does it? But it's great when it does !!

Here is another entry into my small Moleskine journal.  The background was started ages ago and incorporates Dylusions sprays and acrylic paints applied through stencils with a sponge.

Some arrows were added with a stamp and some more yellow acrylic paint, later on.  The background can be seen at the end of the post.

I thought the jigsaw pieces represented bits of life very well and these were stamped with Memento onyx black ink and coloured with alcohol ink brush in lime.  Red dots were added with a Posca marker.

The edges of the pages were stamped with a border stamp in archival black ink to define them.  Words were printed out on the computer and trimmed to size.

Further doodling with Posca pens and the final shot shows the background before the words and embellishments were added.

Hot Adoration

She does look a little hot and is being fanned to cool her down ............... hence the title !

Here is an sandwich board card I made where the inside picture hangs and swings freely between the front and back of the card. The base is Kraft and the inside has been trimmed down with the top die-cut with a sizzix border die. This has been passed through an aperture cut with a craft knife at the top of the card.

The front and inside is decorated with papers from Pion and the front panel was trimmed and the paper applied before passing through the sizzix with a Nestie die to make the aperture.

The 'adore' stamp is from Papertrey and the pink velvet ribbon has been threaded through some rose pink eyelets and tied in a bow.  The HOT is rub-ons.  The butterfly has been held in place with a rose brad.  Some pink Stickles glitter glue has been added to finish the card.

Summer Garden

Seeing as we seem to already have had our Summer in the UK, here is a card I have made to remind us of what it can be like.

The card base was made from white textured cardstock and when scored and folded measures 17 x 17 cm.

The central frame and corners are die-cuts out of a printed paper by Kaisercraft.

The central panel and text sentiment are from a set of seasons stamps by Beth Hughes.  Once stamped  on cream card in Memento tuxedo black, the frame was coloured with Marvey alcohol brushmarkers and all elements were stuck in place with a glue pen.

A very simple card.
