Happy Halloween (again)

Hello again!  Here I am sharing my first ever Halloween card, which, as I write has not yet been received, and that is happening too much lately!

I’ve never made any Halloween things before and this was a rather messy attempt at a card, however my niece liked it a lot.

I took a piece of card just smaller than the size of the 8×8 card and I had a scrap of paper torn to make a division between the sky and the ground.  It was a haphazard thing but it worked.  For the sky I used Black soot, Seedless Preserves and Faded Jeans to make the sky and for the ground I used Vintage Photo, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain. Once I had dried these I made the mistake of stamping the haunted house on it but used the wrong ink and I could barely see it so I then stamped the house onto some card, coloured it in and then mounted it over the image and it had a nice effect, so I made the same mistake with the tree.  It makes them stand out a little.  I tried to stamp a moon but it’s rather wonky!  I ended up using a White Jelly Roll pen to colour that in.  The witch on her broom with her cat I stamped with Versafine and then added some extra black to make her stand out but not too much .  The other images were stamped separately and then added onto the card with the Tim Holtz Halloween ribbon.  Oh and I added some bats too.  I didn’t want to crowd it.

 

There we have it, my first ever Halloween card and if it doesn’t reach my friend I shall be really upset.  Good job I took a photo of it!

Thank you for stopping by again and I look forward to your next visit.

A little birdie told me

Just a very quick post today as the card has been received.

This card was made very quickly indeed using a new set of pre printed ready to colour designs by Dreamees which I coloured in using Spectrum Noir alcohol pens.  The paper is also by Dreamees but I cannot remember what pack it came from but it suited the colours I had chosen for this design. The image and sentiment were mounted on some Hunkydory Adorable Scoreable card.

Thank you for stopping by on such a quick post and please pop by again soon

More Christmas card makes

So at the weekend I actually managed to work on some MDF projects (and I cannot show these as they are gifts for friends and I don’t want to spoil it all by blogging) and also made some Christmas cards which are intended for a craft fair in aid of our local church.  Last time I did the craft fair I didn’t have that many Christmas cards so I am trying to balance that this time with two displays of Christmas cards and 2 displays of other cards as people do want cards for birthdays and other celebrations.  All these cards are made using Hunkydory products – I really enjoyed using these kits.  I am picking and choosing my makes in advance so that I am not getting bored with the same theme.  I’ll share more of my makes as and when I get around to making them.

Thanks again for stopping by and I look forward to your next visit.

More Christmas cards

Hello again and thanks for looking in.

Here we go again with yet more Christmas cards but this time from one of my favourite brands – Dreamees.  I have made a number of cards using their stamps and CDs and I hope that some of them will sell at the Christmas craft fair that I am attending in aid of our local church.

These cards are on a smaller scale but with Dreamees products you can make things on whatever scale you want and I found that I made many smaller and simpler cards but cards which did stand out.  I really do like some of these and am going to make some more.  I don’t usually work on such a small card size but these have been lovely to make.

Thank you once again for stopping by and I look forward to your next visit.

Tattered Lace -Art Deco Christmas

It has been a little while since I have blogged but I have a lot of projects which are “work in progress”.  I thought I had blogged the following cards but it seems that I have haven’t so smack on the wrist for me.

I love Art Deco and I have a number of designs by Tattered Lace and when I saw the Christmas dies and images I just had to have them.  These are the first batch of cards that I have made and I will do more and change the designs.  I really love these designs and they can be used for winter cards as well as Christmas.  I hope you like what I have shared and I will be back soon with more finished projects.

Thank you for taking the trouble to stop by and read my post and I look forward to your next visit.

Hello and thanks once again for stopping by.

Today I am showing my final card made using the Wonky Tonk Girls range by Tracy Easson.

For this card I used Black Versafine ink on some Neenah Classic Crest Card and used Spectrum Noir Colourblend to colour the design in.  I stamped a sentiment in four corners of the design but I felt it lacked some floral adornments so I used some paper I had left over from a Dreamees project and I ran these through my Big Shot using the Tim Holtz tattered florals die.  I haven’t used this die in a long time and I really should get this out again.

I like this card but I think I could have done something else to it, you know how it is, you sit and do something and something is not quite right and you wonder where you could have improved on it.  Anyway the recipient loved it so there you go!

Thanks once again for stopping by, I look forward to your next visit

Hello and thanks for stopping by once again.

Today I am showing a recently made card using another stamp from the Wonky Tonk Girls range by Tracey Easson.

This card is a simple one again but I added some bold flowers courtesy of Dreamees.  The card itself is  a 7×7 card and I used a 6×6 inch piece of watercolour card to stamp and colour my design.  I used Staz-on ink and then used my trusty Spectrum Noir Aquablend pencils to colour her in.  The card looked rather bare and I had these flowers ready-made so I added some faux pearls to the centre and added them to my card to make that bold statement.  I hope you like it.

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to your next visit.
