Hydrangea punch and Rock fern....

Hi Crafters

This little card took me back to the beginning of my card making.
 I used to use punches a lot in the early days, now I like to mix things up a bit.

The punches used are Martha Stewart 3 in 1 Hydrangea punch and EK success Rock fern medium punch.
Other stuff used from my stash are a fine black liner , tiny sticky pearls , bundled sage Distress ink to colour spare card stock to punch the rock fern out of and bundled sage distress pen to add detail to the leaves.

Well thats all for this post. Short but sweet.
Thank you for stopping by.
Why not let me know what you think by leaving a comment. I love hearing from you. :)
I'll see you again soon.

Have a great Day

Hi Crafter's

I have a new card to share with you to day.

The inspiration for this card came from a class I took. We had been using the stamp in another card and as most often happens the girls started wondering how else they could use the stamp.
One of the ways was to use it in a wreath.
So I made this card to show how well the stamp works and its another good excuse to make a car ( not that I need an excuse LOL )

Here is the card


The stamp is from Indigoblu.
I lightly drew a circle on my card, then using the circle as a guide I stamped top, bottom and both sides. Then I stamp in between . Next I stamped 8 times onto coloured card stock then added some extra colour to dark areas of the stamped image. Cut out the flowers and mount on the wreath.
To add more dimension I created shade on the inside of the wreath with water based pens in a very pale grey. Finished off with a greeting in the middle.

Well that's all for this post I hope you like the card and thank you for stopping by.
I'll see you soon with another creation.

Belated Happy Easter

Hi Crafter's

It's nice to be back on after my blog has been off line for a few days .....

Here is an update to let you know what I made for Easter I know I'm late.... but hey ho... whats new there....   :)

This card and the next few cards I have used the Easter egg stamp from Indegoblu .
I stamped this one with versamark and used sticky embossing powder then used gilding flakes.
I coloured the ribbon with Peacock Feathers distress ink.

This one was just stamped with the Peacock Feathers distress ink cut out and mounted .

Now I wanted to get more use from the stamp so for this card I stamped the bottom portion of the stamp six times to make up the scalloped border. 

I used the top part of the egg here. 
I just love the Peacock Feathers Distress ink. 

And the last card for this post, I used one of the spare stamped eggs that hadn't stamped out too well.
Using a retro flower punched out a couple of flowers and used them to make this little card.

Well that's all for this post I will be back soon with another. Thank you for stopping by.

I'm Back up and running

Hi Crafter's

Well I have been having all sorts of problems with my little blog. It's been down and out for a while. I didn't know about it until one of my customers  told me that she was having trouble finding my blog.

Anyway I'm back...... on the net that is... whoopeee.

Now all I've got to do is get the blog visible again.
