don’t eat the Daisies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnother A5 card using the Paper Artsy JOFY stamps – have I said they are one of my favourite sets of  stamps, lol. I have used a number of blue distress inks with a spray of water on my craft mat to create the background. I have also used Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks to watercolour the stamped flowers in. To finish I used card the same 2 colours as the flowers to mat and layer and then foam mounted the topper onto white basket weave textured card to keep it bright and clean looking x

Rich in Raspberry

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have been absent for a few days as I’ve been away for a few days on a lovely crafting retreat with some ladies from the UK Stampers Network. I had a great time. This is a DL card made recently using a Paper Artsy – JOFY stamp. I really like the JOFY Flower stamps as I think they are so versatile. I made the background using Picked Raspberry and a little Seedless Preserve Distress inks, which i stamped onto my Craft sheet and mixed together with a little water. When it was dry I stamped the flower with a white ink pad and embossed with white embossing powder. I then  painted in the flower heads with some more Seedless Preserve Ink. To finish off I randomly inked and embossed the edges with some more white ink and white embossing powder. The stamped topper was then layered up on white and Raspberry card and then mounted up on white textured card which has a little disress ink to the edge x

Bloomin Marvellous

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA large 10 x 7 card made using some “JOFY” stamps from Paper Artsy. I created the background from distress inks that I had stamped straight onto my craft mat to use the inks to paint the detail on some other stamped images. They were Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers. I then used some other Distress Inks to paint in the detail of the flowers and butterfly on this card – Seedless Preserve, Mustard Seed and Shaded Lilac. I particularly like this way of making stamped cards. The backgrounds are never the same and using the distress inks to paint in the detail makes the images so bright.

I shall be straying from my prescribed daily schedule for the next few days due to commitments I have this weekend, but shall be sheduling posts containing stamped images for a few days. Hope you like them and enjoy me sharing them with you x

Butterfly Kisses

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is an A5 landscape card using the Heartfelt Creations stamp – Butterfly Kisses. I have stamped the butterfly image a 4 times with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with WOW White Pearl powder. I’ve then used 3 shades of Pink Distress inks over the top – Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry. Once it was dry, I’ve used a water pen and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to outline the butterflies. I also brushed a little Stickles – Fruit Punch – in the middle of the butterflies to add a little sparkle x

Thoughts of Summer

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA tag I’ve made using the Aspire Crafts “Cut and Colour” Collection. It has all been coloured using distress inks – Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door. I love the flexibility of this collection as it looks so elegant left in its natural state – white with foiling, or coloured with the many different mediums available x
