I've spent a lovely day today with my family at the Botanical Gardens. We found a beautiful shady spot to have a picnic lunch and good chat with family members we haven't seen in awhile. The kids had a great time too with lots of footpaths to ride their skateboards and feeding the ducks and turtles.
This is the card I made for my Mum. I found the pattern for the teapot at toptiptuesday.blogspot.com. I've used Kaisercraft pattern paper (Magnolia) and matching pink bazzil cardstock. Flowers, pearls and accessories are from Wild Orchard Crafts. I coloured the pearls with a copic pen to match the pink. Greeting stamp is from LOTV.
This card was made for my friend Debbie who celebrated her birthday recently.
She is a collector of all things Fox so I had to use this vintage image which I sourced from Google images. The scalloped circle is a Marianne's die which I've made into an easel card . The patter paper is digital paper which I've printed. Also used flower from Prima and some pearls.
Thought I would try some vintage for my card today.
The image is from Magic Moonlight free images and is called "1925 young sweet" . It is aptly titled as it's a beautiful image. The patter paper is a digi download and is called Vintage Postcard. I've been unable to find where I sourced this from but will update when I do. I cut out the butterfly and added some foam dots to make it pop up. The little postcard is also digital.
I've added some ribbon, pearls and metal embellishments which are all from Wild Orchard crafts. The flower is from Prima Flowers.
Hi everyone. Merry Christmas and Happy 2012 to you all.
I thought I should post some of the christmas cards I made this year. Unfortunately I didn't make as many as I would have liked to. I used a selection of papers from Papermania. I actually bought this paper pack last christmas and didn't really like it so just put it in my stash. I must admit I've really enjoyed using these colours this year. I also used a selection of LaLa Land digi stamps, a Wild Rose Studio and a little Hanglar Stanglar stamp I had never used before.
Here's a close up of each card:
All the images where coloured with copics.
Hopefully I'll get some time again this year to make more cards and I'm hoping to start some scrapbooking again. It feels like forever ago I was scrapbooking.
Just catching up with a few cards I've made over the last month but haven't yet posted.
This lovely stamp is from LaLa Land Stamps. Instead of colouring with copics this time I've paper pieced her clothes and hat from matching paper. The design paper is from Kaisercraft as is the Ifle tower chipboard shape. Stitiched around outer edges and added pearls,flowers and swirl. Die cut shapes are from MFT.
Today's card was made using an image download from Printable Heaven. They have lots and lots of digi papers and card fronts to choose from. I've used some pattern paper from Kaisercraft which fits the theme perfectly. Used metal embellishments from my stash.
I'm slowly catching up with all my birthday cards. This one went off in the post this week. I've used a different colour combination for me. I'm very partial to pink so doing a blue card this time was quite a challenge.
The image is coloured with copics. The garden seat is from CC designs and fits perfectly with Tilda. Pattern paper is from Kaisercraft Utopia paper pack.
The weather here is quite ordinary today. Started with sunshine and then quickly developed to a storm. Has been bleak every since. Good crafting weather though, so hopefully will get a few more cards off the list.
Another froggy birthday card for my sister in law who loves frogs. It's become quite a challenge to find froggy images each year. I love this stamp from Magnolia and this is the first time I've coloured it. Used Copics for colouring and some diamond stickles for sparkle. Paper is from Papermania Rose Garden paper pack.
