This card is the same style as the last, with a punched matt and central bouquet. I have used the Xcut flower dies to cut the petals, and have used a thick embossed card which creates a lovely texture to the card. The leaves have been die cut & punched and shaped with an embossing tool before adhering to the card. Tiny pearls have been added as the flower centres.
Summer has finally arrived so I thought I would celebrate with some more flowers.
This is a very simple floral bouquet, made on a 5 X 5 card base with a 3'' punched matt in the centre. I made this using the eyelet lace MS PATP punches. Flowers were punched using a simple sunflower punch and papermania mini flower punches, I shaped the petals using an embossing stylus and added a base of punched leaves and a ribbon to finish.
I bought this new stamp yesterday, a huge flower head by Woodware.
This is what I used it to create.
Unusual for me to get to work with a new stamp so quickly!! I do have many plans for this stamp but for this project I have covered the image with lots of tiny punched flowers which I have shaped with an embossing tool, and finished with teeny tiny beads in the centres. The papers I used were papermania's Blueberry capsule collection, very delicate shades which worked perfectly with this project. I have used a Martha Stewart border punch for the edges of the white card layer & finished off with some papermania blue dotty ribbon & a stamped sentiment.
I have used some of my newest goodies to create this monochrome bird card.
Papers are Papermania Bexley Black capsule range, the centre panel I have matted on to black card & added a dotty ribbon. Die cuts are nesties petite ovals and the bird or the branch is a die by Marianne creatables. I have added flowers & flourishes, the flowers are my favourite Nellie Snellen floral punch which I love for the embossing & dimension it gives, the flourish is also a Marianne die. Tiny flowers I have added to the branch are a simple circle which I have shaped using an embossing tool. Sentiment is one by LOTV.
I love creating flowery cards & blue & white is one of my favourite colourways. I have been experimenting with texture & dimension in these two.
To create the base I inked the inside of an embossing folder with tumbled glass distress ink and ran it through the big shot. To create the frame I used spellbinders lattice rectangle die and then cut the inner with a craft knife as I don't have the right size of die, a little fiddly & not quite perfect. I have used the fanciful flourish from Cheery Lynn and punched and shaped flowers cut with a Martha Stewart flower punch. Added pale blue gems for the flower centres.
Another blue & white, this time even more subtle shades.
This time a smaller card A6 size. I have layered cardstock in pale blue and white, the white was embossed using the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder. Frame created using nestabilities petite ovals, both scalloped & plain. Flowers have again been punched using Martha Steward punch and have been shaped with an embossing tool. I added a hint of tumbled glass distress ink to the centre for a very subtle look. The flowers have been added again to the Cheery Lynn fanciful flourish for a very simple elegant look.
Papermania papers & card in 'turf' green of course. Border cut using Martha Stewart punch. I have punched holes and set with eyelets, threaded with ribbon.
Wellington Bear papers this time teamed with coredinations card, a bit of inking on the edges with Tim Holtz distress inks. Papermania urban birds stamped image, trimmed with mini buttons, Boofle buttons and card candi.
A touch of cuteness!! I have die cut these two little love birds using Xcut leaf nesting dies. The hearts have been die cut on glittered paper using Nellie Snellen dies. Again I have used papermania Lincoln Linen papers, and textured vanilla card for the little punched bunches of flowers.
This is what I have been doing while I have been too busy to blogg!!
Double easel & more double easel cards, they have proved to be so popular.
Here are a few I have made for Wedding, Engagement & Anniversaries.
I have used off white pearl card & either Lincoln Linen or Forever Friends Black & Gold papers. I have die cut the floral wreath using a Marianne Creatables die and added tiny flower trims and a hint of glitter. Borders have been cut using Martha Stewart punches and hearts either die cut or punched.
Just a hint of pink on this Anniversary card.
A couple of butterflies finish off this Wedding card.
Flowers are punched using my favourite Nellie Snellen double punches, and finished off with a drop of liquid pearls.
It is a long time since my last blog, but I will never learn if I don't keep it up.
Here is a new style I have been working on using die cuts & punches. I have gone for white on white which could be suitable for any occasion.
I embossed a card using a folder from Forever Friends Black & Gold Collection, and added an oval frame I cut using Spellbinders nesties. The foliage is die cut from Cheery Lynn fern die, and the flowers were punched using a woodware punch. I then shaped the petals using an embossing stylus and layered up using silicone glue and glossy accents.
