Little Claire Design Team Card using Hanging Wine Bottles Dinkie Stamp

Good Morning and Welcome back! 

Today I have a sweet little card to share which I have made using the Hanging Wine Bottles Dinkie Stamp from Little Claire Designs. I also used the lovely glitter film to make this card extra sparkly.


I kept this one simple by stamping onto white card, Promarkers to colour and added the glitter film before die cutting a scalloped circle. Then I used some Little Claire papers onto a Little Claire card blank. To finish I added the sentiments onto scissor cut banners.

1st Birthday Card using Making Cards Free Papers and Lawn Fawn Critters from the Past

Hi Everyone! 

Today I am sharing a card I made using some lovely Free Papers from Making Cards Magazine - these papers are from a previous issue and I knew they would be perfect for a Dinosaur mad 1 year old! I teamed these papers up with the Lawn Fawn stamp set Critters from the Past.


I kept this simple and used Promarkers to colour the Critters in colours similar to the papers and die cut the name and age to finish. I was delighted this card is featured in the latest Making Cards Magazine (Nov 2017) in the Social Scene pages.

Poinsettia and Lace Design Team Card For Crafty Ribbons

Good Morning! 

Today I am sharing a Poinsettia Christmas Card that uses the lovely Lace Ribbon: Amour Cotton Lace - Love from Crafty Ribbons. I think this is perfect for the finishing touches for my special Christmas Cards as it is red and has a sparkle thread running through it! 
 

I made the inky background using the Distress Oxides in Lucky Clover and Candied Apple. I then stamped the Warming Words sentiment in the corner and the Pretty Poinsettia stamp by For the Love of Stamps onto another inky background and fussy cut out. To finish I used the lovely lace ribbon, some gold mirri card and added a few sequins.

Imagine Design Create Guest Design Team Zentangle Card

Hi Everyone 
Today I am sharing another card I made with the cute Birthday Balloons Stencil. I have seen some cards make with inking through the mask and then drawing over the design in the style of zentangle. I confess this is my first attempt and enjoyed the process of having a relaxing doodle! 
View the original Post Here!

I have also used: 
6” x 6” card blank 
White Cardstock: 300 gsm 
Distress Oxides: Spiced Marmalade, water spray bottle 
Blending tool, Black Fine Liner 
Black sequins 

To start I inked through the stencil to create an initial surface to work on, then went around the edges with the black fine liner pen. 


I just began mark making with my fine liner pen, having a quick look on google for pattern ideas. 


Once my design was complete I inked the edges and sprayed the design with water using a tissue to blot to give the card a softer look. To finish I added a few black sequins.  
This was fun to create and makes an original card. Different colours and patterns can be used to make this a really personal card. Let your imagination run riot!

Dinkie Silhouette House Design Team Card for Little Claire Designs

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! 

Sorry I've been a bit AWOL the last week. I've been getting stuff ready for the upcoming craft fairs this month! I won't be posting everyday as I have been but will try and share as much as I can with you all.

Today I am sharing a small simple Design Team card I made for Little Claire Designs using the Dinkie Silhouette House stamp.

I used some scrap green vellum for the background and die cut a fancy border to go around the stamped image. I stamped this onto the ombre paper from Little Claire Designs and added a greeting to finish.

Imagine Design Create Guest Design Team Shaker Card using Birthday Balloons Stencil

Hello Everyone 

Today I am sharing a card I made with the cute Birthday Balloons Stencil. I had an idea to create a shaker card in rich gold and purple colours for a special birthday. 

View the original post can be found here!


I have also used: 
6” x 6” Card Blank 
Gold Mirror Card 
Purple Paper from my scrap stash 
Happy word die, Stitched Square Die 
Acetate, Double Sided Tape, Foam Pads, PVA glue 
Blending tool 
Sequins, Gold thread 
 To start cut all my card and papers down to size, die cut the elements and traced round the Birthday Balloon single Balloon Stencil on the off cut purple paper. 

I then put a square of acetate to the gold frame, added foam pads to the back and piled up my sequins ready to make the shaker window element. 

Once I was happy I put the shaper window in place and then cut out the traced balloons. 


 I then inked the edges to the balloons and half of the die cut happy word using a blending tool with the Distress Ink. I added a gold thread round the balloon bases and used foam pads to attach these to the winder shaker window. To finish I used PVA glue to stick the happy word to the card and hold the thread in place.  


Hope you enjoyed the tutorial, shaker cards are fun to make and special to receive!
