Cutie card

Hi everyone,

Loved doing this card as I enjoy stamping but haven't done much lately.
The image on this card is from Jayne Nestorenko's Cute Companion range coloured with Pro markers.
The card was cut and embossed using Go Kreate scalloped circle as was the card with the image and part of a scalloped circle for the layering for the rest. The pearlised card was cut and embossed using Go Kreate plain circle.
Buttons and ribbon from my stash was used to finish.

Hi everyone,

This card is for my great-nephew who is 2 later this month. All elements for this were from Docrafts Woodland folk and Friends, lots of cuties on here for children and adults alike. The background I printed straight onto the main card, then chose elements I liked, resized and printed 3 of the little man to decoupage a little. Each element was arranged onto an A4 sheet on the computer before printing, cutting out and assembling.
Although I do enjoy using CD's elements, I also enjoy adding other items from my crafty stash to complete my cards, but this one is all CD elements.
Well April complete, now to start on May, only 7 this month, but at sometime in the next 3 weeks we are expecting our 4th grandchild and don't know what it is so will have to fit that in aswell.

Barbara Gray stamp and Distressed Ink Pens

Hi everyone,

As I've already posted my Easter card this is a Birthday card for a friend at Church.

The stamp is one of Barbara Gray's, as I love DL cards this worked well. I inked it up using two of the new Tim Holtz distressed pens, worn lipstick and pine needles, which made it easy on the fine artwork. Stamping onto thin white card I then used a water pen and pulled in the ink to colour the image.
Cutting this out using spellbinders deckle edge and a second layer in coordinating pink also decked edge I layered them onto green pearlised card with white flourishes wrapped around then onto a white DL card. I finished the flourishes off with mini gems and to complete the card made Happy Birthday sentiment layering as main image.

Morning everyone,
I would just like to wish you all a Happy Easter and hope you have a good weekend.
The card was made a couple of weeks ago using one of my CD images, but sorry cannot remember which CD (must remember to make notes of which ones I use in future).

Easter Cards

Hi Everyone,
Here are a couple of Easter cards made for our Church Easter fayre last weekend, that I didn't get posted.

This one was using the smallest of spellbinders Crosses Two cut from gold card and placed on the tag from Antique Frames and Accents with the boarder from the same set. The tag is then layered on one of Lables 25. The ink pad used to edge and tint the embossing was Pesto, an Adirondack.
All was placed on an A6 white card finished with a Happy Easter peel off.

Number two was another cross from Crosses two cut in gold, placed on a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle, inked again with Pesto, then layed on a Lattice Rectangle cut in gold.
A white A6 card was the base card and again a Happy Easter peel off to finish.

I made a few variations of these cards and they sold very well for Church funds.

I will be back tomorrow with more cards I've made over the past week.
