Best Dad

Good Sunday morning all!  Happy Father's Day too!  I actually have a card sample that I did using the Slimline collection in January to share with you today.  I started by cutting the Slimline Decorative Squared Rectangles in white and adding a black backing to it.  I cut a white backing using the Slimline Stitched Rectangle Frames.  I used the three oval fallaway pieces from the Decorative Stitched Oval Trio Aperture set and added them with foam.  I cut the Best Dad sentiment from the In The Tool Box set and glued it to the centre oval.  I cut all the tools from the same set and arranged them in two piles and glued them to the other two ovals.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 4 1/2"  x  9"  in size.  All for now.

Rhino

Hello bloggers!  I started today's card by coating a piece of white card with Aqua Lagoon and Golden Mint Pixie Powders and spritzing it with water.   Once dry, I embossed it with the Moroccan Tiles embossing folder for texture.  I inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink to frame it.  Next I stamped the Rhino stamp and cut it out with the matching Rhino die.  I used Distress Markers  (weathered wood, antique linen and evergreen bough) to colour it.  I cut the Rhino die again in black and used it as an offset shadow then added a white vellum backing to it.  I added it to the centre of the background using mounting foam.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now,  Sue x

Miss You

Hello bloggers!  I started this sweet card by creating the background.  I taped the Basketweave stencil to a piece of white card.  I used Clear Texture Paste through the mask.  While the mask wa till in place, I sprinkled Teal Marine and Fuschia Rose Pixie Sparkles all over the mask. making sure to hit all the areas with the texture paste.  I removed the mask and set the background aise to dry thoroughly.  Next I cut three small square white frames using the Cut Corner Squares.  I added mounting foam to the backs of the frames then added a piece of white card o each of them.  I added the squares vertically to the background.  I used some of the flowers from the Elegant Arrangements in the top and bottom frames and inked the flowers with Spun Sugar ink.  In the centre frame, I added the Miss You sentiment cut in black.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 4 3/4"  x  9 1/4" in size.  All for now,

Happy Birthday To A Kindred Spirit

Hello there my crafty friends!  I started by embossing a piece of milk card with the Pebble Rush embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment on another piece of milk card, then gluing it to the embossed background.  I cut four of the Tina die out of rust card then glued them onto a square of milk card, overlapping at the corners.  I added the square to the backgrond with mounting foam.  I stamped the Giraffe stamp and cut it out with the matching Giraffe die.  I coloured it with Distress Markers.  I inked a backing card for it using Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass.  I added the giraffe panel in the middle of the milk card square.  The card was completed with milk card mats and layers.   The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  8 " in size.  All for now, Sue x

Because You're In My Thoughts

 Hi crafters!  Today's card uses the Watercolour inks too, but I have used Cerulean Blue and Purple Twilight watercolour inks for this card.  I allowed it to dry well, then matted it with a thin black mat.  I cut a larger piece of white card and used the Stripes Embossing folder on it.  I added the watercolour background to the embossed card with mounting foam.  I cut the Because Die out of white and black card.  I used the black die cut a an offset shadow behind the white die cut and then glue dit to the centre of the card.  Using a small piece of leftover background, I cut three small butterflies from the Butterfly Delights die set.  I added them around the outer white background.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment and cut it out with the tag die from the set and added it in the lower corner.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Fantastic Friend

Hi bloggers!  I created the background for this card to start.  I used the Pearlescent Watercolour inks all over the card then added a piece of cling film over the top and scrunched it and allowed it to dry like that.  The colours I used were Red Sunset and Golden Sunrise.  Once dry, I removed the cling film.  I cut two of the Magnolia Corners in white and glued them in opposite corners.  I cut several of the extra flowers from the die set out of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet added to it.  I glittered all the flowers with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz before assembling them and then glued them to the two corners.  I cut the Friend die out of a leftover piece of the background card, added a black offset shadow then glued it to the white shadow piece.  I glued it to the centre of the card then stamped the two sentiments to go with it.  I cut them out with the tag die from the set then added them in opposite corners around the die cut sentiment.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are7 1/2"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now.

Have A Beautiful Day

 Hi crafters!  I started this card by cutting a wide frame using the Clipped Corner Rectangles.  While the die was still in place, I inked the exposed white card with Spun Sugar Distess Oxide ink, leaving a pretty white border around the edge from where the dies where.  I cut a slightly smaller frame out of white card and attached the two frames with mounting foam.  I embossed a piece of white card with the Art Deco Flowers embossing folder and attached the frame over it.  I cut the Beautiful Bold Word /Stamp Combo die set out of black card and glued it to the centre of the frame.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment into two pieces and cut them out with the tag die in the set.  I added them to the top and bottom of the Beautiful sentiment.  I completed the card with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now. Sue x

Dare To Be Different

Good Sunday morning all!  I started with a piece of Pixied Sparkled card that used Beyond Blue all over the card.  I used the Pebble stencil and embossed it first through the die cutting machine, then I used Black Soot distress ink lightly over the top of the stencil to highlight the pattern.  Next I stamped the zebra and cut it out.  I nipped away the frame from the die and replaced it with a black Clipped Corner Rectangle frame instead.  I stamped the sentiment from the Wild About You clear stamp set and added it inside the frame.  I cut the Postage Stamp Frames in black and nipped away one side of the frame to use as a border below the zebra.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x
