Summer Shaker

Evening Friends

Well tonight I thought I would try a shaker card, I cut the window using the largest stitched die and then the matching Scalloped die to make the frame. I backed the window with acetate and foam tape and a piece of Soft Sky card stock.

I also fussy cut some of the papers to use inside the window with the little punches, then cut out some of the Strawberries to add to the from of the window.

I stamped the sentiment and used the triple banner punch then put the white piece on Real Red card and cut around it to make the border 

I finished it off with more of the sequins

As always thanks for looking.

Great Pear

Evening All

Welcome to day 2 of the Bring on Summer week featuring the Tutti-Frutti DSP and Fruit Basket Bundle.

Tonight's card was made using a 51/4 x 51/4 card base. I layered a piece of Daffodil Delight and then a piece of  Whisper White card stock and cut out 3 pieces of DSP. 
2 x 1 7/8" squares 
1 x 4 x 2 1/8

  I used scraps of the papers and the added the scallop top banner.  I first layers a piece of DSP onto white card then cut out the top.  I used the triple banner punch for the flag.  I stamped the greeting then punch out the two little pears, one using DSP and the other is stamped with Daffodil delight, I attached these using the mini dimensional s.

I added some of the sequins and a bow made with the Lemon Lime Twist stripped ribbon.

As always thanks for looking

Hello Friend

Hi everyone

Well Day 2 playing the the beautiful Painted with Love DSP.

I started with a 5 1/4 square card and added a layer of Rich Razzleberry card stock.

I made 3 panels from the DSP and added the shimmer ribbon, then added the bow with mini glue dots.

I stamped the heart and used the marker pens to colour the flowers, (powder pink, rich razzleberry, so saffron, pear pizzazz, berry burst)  I then used a White gel pen to add some highlights.  I die cut this with the Sweet & Sassy framelets and also die cut a Berry Burst larger heart.

I stamped the greeting from the A Good Day stamp set on a piece of whisper white and used the label punch.

As always thanks for looking

True Gentleman

Evening everyone

A simple card tonight using the True Gentleman DSP and Truly Tailored Stamp set with matching Punch.

This is a wonderful set for male cards and the can be simple or elaborate as you need them to be.

I love the sentiments in this set.

I used Chocolate Chip card stock cut at 10" x 5" for the card base.
I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla and then used the stitched oval to cut it out.
I covered the card with a piece of the DSP and then cut a strip from another piece to go across the centre of the card.

More Magical

Evening friends, well another lovely magical evening spent making a card for my grandson.

I cut out a piece of smoky slate card stock to look like a castle then I ran it through the Big Shot with the brick embossing folder, which I ink with Basic Grey.

The I just hand cut the castle tops from Black card stock.

I used the Oval framelits to cut out the door and frame and ran that through the Big Shot with the pine planks embossing folder and some Soft Suede ink.

I used a die from my stash to cut out the grass and added the Magical DSP for the sky.

I stamped and coloured the knight and then re stamped it on a piece of silver mirror card and fussy cut the armour.  I embossed the sentiment with silver on a piece of smoky slate.

Thanks as always for looking.

Afternoon All

Well its been a while since my last post but hopefully now I am getting my Mojo back.............  Since all my Christmas cards I found I was stuck for inspiration and travelling back and forth to Wales was taking its toll.

But here we go with a lovely little card using the Magical Day set, I just love this set and I now have a head full of projects.

I made this card for the little girl next door who turned 5

I used a die from my stash to cut out the wave pattern, using Island Indigo card stock, layering one piece on top of the other with foam.  I used the lovely DSP for the clouds.

I coloured the mermaid in with the stampin' blends and added wink of stella to make them sparkle.  For the sentiment I used versa mark and white heat embossed them.

Thanks as always for looking.
