Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a lovely day. Today I am sharing a card that I have made using Kaisercraft's Peachy Collection. It has muted soft tones of lovely soft peach colours, rose gold images and of course beautiful flowers. I have been trying to set this post for a few days but technology has not been my friend. Windows update, new iPhone, iTunes update and none of it is syncing or working grrr. Am on to it trying to get it sorted to day before school goes back next week.

Over on Kaisercraft blog, there are step by step instructions available for you to download. Meanwhile, here are some close ups for you to view...
Wish me luck as I go for round two in my battle with my devices today!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You

Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying the long weekend! Today I am sharing a card that I have made using some stamps ans watercolour markers. As it is the start of the school holidays (YAH!!) I always take the opportunity to work on some techniques and create something. Usually it involves colouring as it is a skill I enjoy v=but need to keep working at perfecting.

In my head I planned this card and nearly threw it out when I die cut my elements, however once I added my sentiment it came together! I used a Prima background stamp and stamped it onto kraft cardstock to create a vintage look.

I stamped some Altenew flowers and leaves and coloured them in using Zig markers and a waterbrush pen. I die cut them out using the coordintaing dies, but trimmed some of the excess of with my scissors. In the end, I am happy with how the card turned out and glad it didn't end up in the bin!


Stamps: Altenew Peony Scroll, Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Borders, Prima 5 x 7 Cling Stamp Texture

Ink: Distress Ground Espresso, Versamark, Versafine Onyx Black

Markers: Zig Markers Persian Green 033, Emerald Green 048 and Green 040

Paper: Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstck, Kraft and Kaisercraft Cardpack C6 Black

Other: Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, Nuvo Glitter Accents Fresh Snowfall, Altenew Peony Scroll Coordinating Die, Pentel Water Brush

Cards With Different Folds ~ Meg's Garden

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing two cards that I have made using papers from the Sherlock III collection, Lavande and the Vintage Flower Journal Cards. Just for a change, I have created cards with different folds, and embellished them in a vintage/shabby chic style.

For my first card, I decided that I would make and accordian fold card.

 It is secured with a band, that can can open and close. The two ends slightly overlap and are secured with velcro dots.

The base of my card is kraft cardstock. I used both Sherlock III and Lavande papers to decorate the panels of the card.

The centre image is a Vintage Floral Journal Card.

After securing it to the card, I scored it so that it could lift up. You can stamp/write your message here. 

My second card is a square lace tri-fold card. The base is kraft cardstock and I have used the Sherlock III papers.

Again, it is secured into place using a band and velcro dots. This is the inside view of the card.

The back view of the card.

 For both cards, I used Lori Whitlock cut files which I then used on Silhouette Cameo machine. 


Other: Memory Box Winterberry Sprig, Leavenworth Butterfly Trio, Poppy Stamps Lorelai Leaf, Magnolia Rose Leaf, Distress Ink Walnut Stain, Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers, Elizabeth Crafts Curvy Leaves, Lori Whitlock A2 Stepped Accordian Fold Card and Square Lace Tri-Fold Card.
