Sunday 29th April quick card

Sunday 29th April
Todays quickie make


    Today's quick make card...

I used a scalloped pink card blank from Hunkydory , next i used a red papermania ink pad with a flower stamp from the Stampin Up Garden Dream collection and stamped onto pink backing paper from The English Paper Company Siesta Collection . next i cut out the flower images and attatched them to the card blank using tacky pva glue . The just for you heart sentiment in the centre is from Flowersoft and edged in the same . I finally finished this by embelishing with a butterfly and gems from my stash .  Altogether it took me around 25 minutes to make.

Hope you like it

quickie make Tuesday 24th April

                                                                 Tuesday 24th April
Hi Everyone , hope that you are all well and happy ! here is todays " Quickie Card " that i have made
i really enjoyed making this one because of all the lovely pink / purple tones .
                                                                   heres how i did it !
I used a papermania 5x7 textured card blank as a base and brayered it with Big and Juicy ink pad  Vibrant Brights . Next i took a piece of Core dinations cardstock from the So Mod colour collection in a pale pink and brayered it using the same big and juicy pad as for the card blank .
then i used a selection of wooden stamps from the Stampin Up Garden Dream range ,stamped them using pigment ink and aplied meltdust powder in purple over them and embossed using my heat gun and added a little more colour to the stamped and embossed images using my trusty pro's , i also stamped the sentiment from the same range . the flower is from my stash and the largest layer has been inked a little with a promarker , finaly embelished with the butterflies and tiny flowers with a diamonte in the centre .
to complete it i tore around the edges to show off the colour core and used double sided tape to stick to the card blank base .
                                                       i hope that you like this card 
                                                          thanks for stopping by.
                                                            HAPPY CRAFTING !

This is a card that I made for a recent customer order. I loved making this card because it is such a special one.
I have used self adhesive glitter paper from hobbycraft to do the writing and numbers of the card
I made the flowers using super soft card and MCS flower CD ROM - I inked around the edges and used MCS Crystal Extra Fine Glitter to decorate them, this adds a subtle sparkle to them which I adore,
I made the butterfly from pearlised card and on the flourish I added self adhesive gems.
I hope you like my card and over the next few weeks I will be adding more of the cards, gifts and altered items that I produce.
