Heartfelt Wishes

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing a card which features dies and stamps. I love the detail in the Altenew stamps and in particular one of my favourites is the Vintage Roses set. I have made a few cards in the past using this set and I manage to find new ways to showcase the stamped flowers in a configuration that I am pleased with.

My first layer is a complimentary pink cardstock followed by Spellbinders die cut which is adhered with foam tape. A pink oval followed by a white oval and then the two fishtail flags are layered on top. I adhered the ovals with foam tape, as well as the leaves to add dimension and depth to my card. Finally I added the flowers and some sequins to complete.


Stamp: Altenew Vintage Roses, Hero Arts Everyday Messages

Paper: Kaisercraft Coconut and Musk Cardstock

Ink: Altenew Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen, Versafine Onxy Black Ink

Just Because

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. Lately I have found that I have lost my mojo....burnt out. No motivation whatsoever. Should be thinking about things for school (new grade), making craft projects as I have free time being on school holidays but NOPE.... nothing....zilch...a big fat ZERO. The end of last year was so busy....so many deadlines, my time was dictated to the minute in order to get everything finished, then I had to host Christmas and you get the picture rush rush rush.

In order to break my cycle I brought out the markers, popped on some tunes on Spotify and started to colour. It seems to be therapy for me. I made two cards as a result. I think the drought is starting to crack. I have made a card that is not my usual style but it was just created for enjoyment.

I stamped my images and heat embossed using white embossing powder. I then used Zig Markers to colour my images in. I used some cardstock as borders and that is all.

Markers: Zig Markers Deep Red 260, Pale Rose 230, May Green 047, Green 040

Hello ~ Meg's Garden

Hello everyone! Best wishes to you and yours for the holiday season. It has been a while since I have created a project for Meg's Garden and I felt my sentiment of 'hello' was fitting. Today I am using papers from the Spring Flowers Collection. There are soft pastel tones, vintage ephemera and lovely delicate images to create shabby chic projects.

To add dimension to my layers, I have used lots of foam tape! I used a large die from Poppy Stamps called Big Hello. I liked the thin script so you can see the beautiful papers beneath.
I  added some Nuvo Glitter Accents to add a bit of sparkle in random places including on the flowers.
I layered an older border Spellbinders Parisian accents die from my stash to compliment the lace. I also cut down a doily to frame one of the ephemera cards. These all add to the shabby chic feel of the card.


Thanks so much for stopping!
