Stamping Sensations- Colour Your World
We Love Chocolate Baroque- Flowers, Birds Butterflies
Addicted To Stamps- any Occasion
This was fun. I had a scrap paper I was using to wipe up excess colours plus some purple sparkly paste and decided to use this as a fantasy background. I took a red paper and embossed the design through my cuddlebug. You just put the paper between the design as a sandwich and roll it through the cuddlebug...instant design/image. I took my purple ink pad and brushed it along the top to bring out the design a bit more. I glued the 2 pieces together and then stamped my flower image in purple before colouring it in my gamsol pencil crayons. I stamped the butterfly in burgundy and heat embossed it with burgundy embossing powder as well as stamped the 2 birdies in gold and heat embossing it with gold sparkle embossing powder. after fussy cutting all of the images, I affixed the flower with pop up dots and glued the butterfly and birds in place before finally adding the message. I do like my colourful creation
Color Throwdown- blush, sage, gold (ctd630)
Happy Little Stampers:Dies- Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday-Slimline card
This was a nice and simple card I created using my pink distress Dye ink to create a soft pink horizon before stamping my trees using my sage tombow marker that I coloured right onto the stamp. I added some sage coloured cardstock remnants to the side before affixing it to the gold background. I sprayed some white paint onto the card(and me) to make it look like snow before finally using my stickles for some added sparkle.

Simon Says-Your favourite Technique(just one?...really?)
Dream Valley-Add Some Green
Now, you must be living under a rock if you don't already know that I love glitter so when I bought this new stencil cut (before lockdown) and tried it on basic white paper using my sizzex machine, I knew something needed to pop behind it. This gold glitter cardstock was just the ticket. I glued down the diecut onto the gold and cut out the middle part and the outer area so I had a nice frame. I do love the old fashioned stamping and heat embossing so I took my stamp, stamped it in gold and chose Green Enamel, Red Glitter and Egyptian Gold embossing powders for the image. I took a little measuring spoon to lay the powder down where I wanted it to be(yeah, I screwed up with the green going onto some of the letters but, who cares) and heat embossed it to set the powder. I placed this on to some red cardstock and that is that.
Hope you are all doing well and even though the powers that be are loosening up the Covid rules, be careful. Personally, I think it is too soon even though I would love to just go out somewhere...I know better.
You have been having fun Birgit...loving your spring daffodils so bright and cheerful...and your two beautiful Christmas cards....ReplyDelete
Hope you are well ...keep safe xxxx

The trees with the pink sky is sheer perfection. Thank you for joining us this week at the Color Throwdown Challenge!ReplyDelete
I love the last one (even though, as you know, I’m not thrilled to hear about Christmas outside December!)ReplyDelete
That first card is fun. They're loosening up things here, too, but until I've been vaccinated, I'm going to continue to be careful. At least our schools aren't opening soon.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I know what you mean about COVID. We have to remain vigilant.ReplyDelete
Beautiful cards! I love the softly colored sunset of your CTD card! So glad you shared with us at the Color Throwdown this week!ReplyDelete

I like what you did with the glitter on cards 1 and 3. Using the glitter on #1 was a cool idea. I look for things to paint when I pour out too much. Waste not, want not, right.ReplyDelete
