You are loved

Hi everyone,

I have a card to share today that I created with a stencil, Distress oxide inks and some beautiful white glitter gel. Entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday challenge to use a stencil. Details here. Also for their Flickr challenge where the theme is 'Lotsa Love'.








First I attached the stencil to a piece of white cardstock, added my stencil and started by applying 3 different shades of oxide inks starting with the lighter shade at the top, medium shade through the middle and the darkest shade at the bottom. Leaving the stencil in place I applied an thin, even coat of white glitter gel from Gina K. I am in love with this glitter that I ordered another jar so I wouldn't run out. I absolutely love, love the beautiful effect of this glitter.

Once everything was dry I layered the finished piece on to a piece of pink cardstock.
The die sentiment was cut with some shiny black cardstock and the sentiment was stamped on to a piece of black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The whole panel was applied to my card base and that finishes this card off.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hello friend

Hi everyone,

I have a new stencil and die that I used on this card from Simon Says Stamp.


Because the stencil is very delicate I thought it would  be perfect to do some ink blending using 2 different colours of Oxide inks.

After I had blended the colours I die cut the whole panel using a stitched rectangle die.

I die cut the friend sentiment with black  cardstock a few times and glued them together. I used the shadow die from the set and cut a piece of light pink vellum. I stamped the small hello and heat embossed with white embossing powder. 

The sentiments were added to my card and I added the whole panel to a card base which was covered with a piece of pink cardstock.

I added a couple of embellishments and that finished off my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Warm Winter wishes

Hi everyone,

Well it's the last day of 2019 and I have finished this year off with a Zumba class this morning and managed to squeak in my last card for the year. Woo Hoo! 



I started by creating my background by blending a couple of colours of Distress oxide inks onto a white background which I had cut out using a wonky stitched rectangle die. I then applied some Gina K glitter paste using a stencil from Taylored Expressions.

I set that aside to dry and created my large sentiment by diecutting 3 times and layering together and blending some Distress oxide ink over top.

I coloured my cute little rabbit with Copics.

I adhered my panel to a base of patterned cardstock and foam mounted the large die cut sentiment.
The bunny was foam mounted and the tiny winter was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I added some glossy accents to the tiny flower and added a black gel pen to the nose and eyes.

Well that's it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Holly Jolly Christmas

 Hi everyone,

Today I have a card to share using some fun Mama Elephant reindeer stamps.

I started by creating my background by blending 3 different colours of distress inks. I then used a window die to cut out my panel.

I did a bit of watercolouring on the reindeers and tree and the sentiment was stamped on black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The inside panels were accented using a snowfall stencil and some Nuvo glitter paste.



Well that's it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Holiday Snowflakes

Hi everyone,

Today I have 2 cards to share that I created using both the positive and negative from a large snowflake die.

I started by cutting a large panel with a stitched rectangle die and then cut a snowflake from the white piece. I then moved onto die cutting the snowflake from a few different colours of cardstock. I carefully taped all the snowflake pieces together on the back side and then laid them into the snowflake cutout background.

I added foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered it to the card base which was lined with a piece of diagonal stripe patterned paper.




For my second card I die cut the snowflake from a white panel. The background to my snowflake was created by blending 3 different colours of distress oxide inks. I added some white splatters to the panel and adhered it to my card base. I applied foam tape pieces around the edges of the snowflake and turned it into a shaker card using Snow Flurries mix from Taylored Expressions.

Both sentiments are from MFT stamps.



Well that's it for both cards and thanks so much for stopping by.
