Cake Card

Image
Hello all, hope you are well. Today I'm sharing one of my samples made using the A Slice Of Happiness stamp set by For The Love Of Stamps. I really love these stamps as there's so much that you can do with them.




I stamped the cake, candle and plate onto some For The Love Of Stamps ink me! card, masking to create the effect that it's all one big stamp. I coloured it in using Spectrum Noir alcohol pens. I stamped the sentiment in the top right hand corner, and added some colour and glitter glue. I added a brown mat (Hunkydory matt-tastic card), and stuck it to my card blank (an ink me! 5"x7" card blank cut down slightly).

Crafty Catz Challenge - Use Pretty Ribbon

Image
It's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz, and this week our theme is anything goes with the optional twist of "use pretty ribbon". Crafty Ribbons are sponsoring us this week, so one lucky person will be winning a great prize! We are also having a GDT call for March, so why not give it a go.




The image I have used is from Crafters Companion's Halcyon Days range, printed from a CD rom. This card is actually the one I gave to my sister, who's birthday was yesterday. This image was perfect because I have bought her a voucher to go for afternoon tea as part of her present! The dotty paper is from the For The Love Of Stamps polka dots Perfect Backgrounds Stamping Pad, and the cream one is from an old Tatty Teddy paper pad (the striped cream paper is from a cheap unbranded paper pack). I added kraft card, a die cut doily, pearls and of course some pretty ribbon. I used some lovely polka dot cream organza ribbon (by Three Kings Ribbon), and added a bow too. I dis…

Baby Box Frame Card

Image
Today I'm sharing one of my samples made using the For The Love Of Stamps Bundles of Joy stamp set. This card was actually featured in Issue 9 of the For The Love Of Stamps magazine.




The images were stamped using black Versafine ink onto For The Love Of Stamps ink me! stamping card. I coloured the stamped images in using Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils, and some of the pieces were paper pieced with some lightly patterned paper. I added a grey frame with apertures cut in it above the stamped images, using foam pads to raise it up. I added some glitter glue accents to finish. The finished card size is 6"x6".

Fairy Shaker Card

Image
Hello all, hope you are well. Thanks for stopping by today. My card that I am sharing features the beautiful Flutterbye Fairies stamp set by For The Love Of Stamps, and for this one I have created a shaker card.




I used the co-ordinating mask with Dusty Concord and Spun Sugar Distress Inks to ink my card blank with a star design. I cut a square frame from some pink Hunkydory matt-tastic Adorable Scorable and added a thin border of silver mirri to the middle. I attached acetate across the aperture and raised this frame up on foam pads. I added the silver and white glitter to the centre of the card blank before sticking the frame over the top to enclose the glitter and hence create the shaker element.




The fairies are stamped using a black Versafine ink pad and coloured in using Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils, with some glitter glue accents on the wings. I added these to the card using foam pads for some dimension.

Make a Wish Fruit Card

Image
Today I am sharing another of my samples made for the latest For The Love Of Stamps release. This card was actually featured in Issue 9 of the For The Love Of Stamps magazine, which I was very excited about!




I have used the A Slice Of Happiness stamp set on this one. I stamped the cherry, raspberry and strawberry around the edge of a piece of For The Love Of Stamps ink me! card. I stamped the make a wish sentiment in the middle and coloured the fruit in using my Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils. I matted the piece onto some black For The Love of Stamps stamping card, then onto one of the gold mirri mats (cut down to the size I wanted it). I added a piece of white ink me! card onto my 5"x5" ink me! card blank, added the topper to the middle and a couple of white pearls in opposite corners.

A Very Cheesy Card...

Image
Today I'm sharing the card I made for my dad's birthday. I must admit, I do usually find it quite difficult to make men's cards but I am actually pretty pleased with this one (but it could do with a few girly flowers and flourishes, right?!!)



I've used the Cheesy But Grate stamp set by For The Love Of Stamps - I love these stamps, they are so unusual! I stamped the cheeses, board and cutlery separately and coloured them in using Spectrum Noir alcohol pens. I then cut out all the separate parts and layered them together. The sentiment is also from the same set of stamps. The backing paper I have used is from the For The Love Of Stamps Beautifully Bright Perfect Backgrounds Stamping Pad.

Crafty Catz Challenge - Love is in the Air

Image
Hello all - hope you are well, thanks for stopping by. We have a new challenge for you this week over at Crafty Catz - anything goes with the optional theme of love is in the air. Our sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine, and I have used the Flowers For My Love digi stamp on this card.




I printed the image onto Canson C a grain paper and coloured it in using Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils. I matted the image onto some brown card and added that to my 6"x4" white card blank. I stamped the love heart stamp from the For The Love Of Stamps sweet wishes stamp set with the be mine sentiment onto white card, and added some colour with my Spectrum Noir alcohol pens. I fussy cut it out and added it to the top right hand side of the card with foam pads. A very simple card but this allows the image to be the real focus of the card.
