Hello!

How are you!

Today's card follows the technique that is in the spotlight at the Stamplorations blog.
Flowers were stamped with Versamark, and embossed with detail white EP, on watercolour paper.
I then sprinkled a few colours of Brusho's, sprayed with water, and spread the colours with a paint brush. I diecut 'hello' on a creamy/white card, and also on black, so that I couls pop the black into the space. Trimmed and mounted onto a black card base. I have turned the design into landscape instead of portrait - I hope that is OK

Happy Birthday

The background for this card was an experiment by my granddaughter. She was using diecuts as stencils and spraying with Dylusions.
I decided to finish it by stamping a flower from a Stamplorations set that I had won, and happy from another set. I used the diecut that she had oversprayed with orange and just slightly offset it. Turned out to be a nice bright and cheerful card.

Challenges
Pixies Crafty Workshop (a snippet for the diecut)

Pink and Pretty

Hi everyone.
I have had fun making this card. I chose some paper from my 'One Moment in Time' pad, and sponged and distressed the edges. I used a stencil from Pronty and sponged with DI spun sugar. I then die cut my corner from a scrap of pink card and sponged it with the spun sugar as well. Finished of with a scrap of string twirled and a pretty rose from my stash. I can assure you it looks much more pink IRL

Challenges - Scrap and Craft #1 - I have used stencil, rose, and paper from the options
Doing Life - a/g
In the Pink - pink!

B&W+1

Hi everyone.
I have been a bit slack with my cardmaking this week, But I did manage to get this one done..
The floral image is from Crafty Individuals, and the words are from Rubberdance Affirmations set.
I have used a kraft card as my base and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. My white colouring is a combination of a white coloured pencel, and a Sharpie waterbased paint pen.

Challenges - Rubberdance for black and white + one (my kraft base)
A Blog Named Hero - Pop of colour (white)
Paperbabe - Anything goes


CASplorations - a/g with the option of gold, which I did not do.

Butterflies

I almost forgot to post this card. It fits in very nicely at CASplorations, where the optional colour is orange.

I have used my new (to me) SU butterfly which is very big, I stamped it on an angle while the card was opened out, and computer printed the message on the inside. I then trimmed along the edge of the butterfly, so that it shows the message.

Christmas in July

There are a few Christmas challenges in blogland at the moment so I thought I would join in.
I made a pretty Brusho background, and for the first time I added black into the mix of reds - it gives a great effect.
The stamp is by Hero Arts, and I used a sparkly Christmas embossing powder. I added stars to the corners.
Challenges -
Rubberdance - Christmas in July The starfish reminded me to use stars on my card
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Use a sentiment

So here is the start of my Christmas cards for this year. I hope you are all doing better than I am.

No card today!

This weeks challenge at Allsorts is 'Anything but a card'
I have made this in a deep picture frame.
The green splatters are a stamp by Paper Artsy, and the 'Dream' is by Rubberdance
I cut a series of butterflies with my Cameo in various shades of green DP, sponged the edges of some, and arranged them as a flight of butterflies.





Here is a closer view.
