I LOVE YOU


Hi... thanks for popping by
This is my first card that I've designed for 'Crafty Cardmakers Blog, the theme is
Love, Love, Love.
Please take a look at the blog and see the lovely cards designed by my 'teamies'  There's plenty of inspiration to get your crafty juices going!!!  You may even decided to enter the challenge too!
For this card I used a 7"x7 white card base and added a thin red mat.  I cut another piece of white foundation card so that it would 'sit' at an angle to the bottom left of my card.  I embossed it using an Embossalicious folder by Crafter's Companion and adhered it to the card.  The heart die and sentiment is also by Crafter's Companion and I cut and embossed both pieces.  The tiny hearts are the  'fall out' cuts from the Trellis Edger Die Set by SW for CE and I adhered these in a 'swirly' pattern across the card

I do look forward to reading your comments

ONE FOR THE MAN IN YOUR LIFE!

Hi... thanks for popping by
The male population do tend to miss out on most of our cards so I thought I would rectify that today!  A very easy card to make.  I cut a piece of white card and adhered it to the black 'jacket' base.  I cut a narrow piece of white card and adhered that to the centre of the card then added 6 small black flat backed gems to give the impression of buttons.  Cutting more white card to create a shirt collar and adding that I then used SW's  bow die  to cut and emboss several layers of black card for the 'black tie' and adhered this onto a black base card that I had previously added red card too leaving a narrow border

WATERCOLOURED BUBBLEBLOOM LILLY



Hi... thanks for popping by...
On this white water coloured card stock by Crafter's Companion I created a background with a few Spectrum AQUA pens.  I used my heat tool to ensure the background was dry.  I stamped the image using  Woodware's 'Bubblebloom Lilly' stamp set (includes the stamp and sentiment) with WOW embossing powder in Metallic Gold Rich then heat set it.  Using a selection of Spectrum Aqua pens, water and a fine brush,  I coloured the flower and leaves.  I used Ranger Archival Ink Pad in Coffee to stamp the sentiment

TO SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL


Hi... thanks for popping by
This is an A5 white card base with a thin mat of antique copper foundation card by Creative Expressions then a mat of white card that I embossed with a folder called linen by SW for CE.
I used the 3 section only of the Shadow Box frame  and cut this out using antique copper card I also cut 2 tags with the same card.  I cut and embossed Happy Birthday in white card (die from my stash) and adhered to the first tag, added mounting foam to the back then adhered to the final tag.
I also cut 2 You're A Star sentiments from the Shadow Box Accessory - You're A Star by SW for CE and used a spray glue to adhere them together.  This was then placed below the images as shown.  From the same You're A Star accessories I cut and embossed one football, one rugby ball and the number 1.  I used felt pens to colour each one, added mounting foam to the backs and adhered them into the individual cubbies.  Using an Archival Ink Pad in coffee I stamped the sentiment, from Phill Martin's 'Baroque Border Sentiments' for Creative Expressions to the bottom of the card, added a few bronze sequins and placed a verse inside the card
