Wishing You...

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

How are you all this morning!

I am off to Birmingham today for the Stitches trade show. Looking forward to seeing what is new coming on the market and catch up with some crafty friends.

Today I am sharing a card using the Lamination Plus Floral Splendour stencils from Stamps by Me.


Step by Step

1. Card base is white A5.
2. Matted and layered purple card.
3. Onto watercolour card I have spritzed the flower using Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist, once this was dry I moved the stencil over and used Distress Oxide in Shaded Lilac.
4. I then used the leaf stencil and Distress Oxide bundled sage, moved stencil to create a 2nd and 3rd generation with the oxides.
5. To finish off I stamped the sentiment.

Birthday Wishes

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Not a good start to the day waking up to no electricity!

At last it is back on and now to get myself sorted as off out this morning, a case of catching my tail as lots to do before going out.

A quick and simple birthday card to share today.


Step by Step

1. Cream DL base card.
2. Stamped the sentiment using Red Generation INX from Stamps by Me using the Eureka 101.
3. Onto a manilla tag I brayered distress stains in fired brick and spiced marmalade.
4. Once dry I stamped the outline stamp using Versafine and embossed with WOW embossing powder, I then stamped the lamination part of the stamp in green and burgundy.
5. To finish off I stamped small dragonflies, adhered to base card with foam pads and added a red gem to the top of the tag.
