Seasonal Layers

I have just bought this set of dies I had the matching stamps for ages and then thought I really need the matching dies I am sure you know what I mean lol. I used pigment sprinkles to make my leaves and I used white embossing powder for that resist technique. I do like the new stitched nested labels.

Items I used to make this card.  and I also used the new pigment sprinkles No image sorry code is 149663

New Wonders

I really enjoyed playing with this set and I particularly like the colour I used to make her  but then again my favorite colour is pink, I used and a discontinued ribbon  ( Naughty lol ) I have a few colour choices in this it has lovely pleats and I think it sets the card off.

I think that this set of stamps will get a lot of use from me they are so cute.

Beautiful Promenade

I think this stamp set is so pretty i love the simplicity of it.

I love the colour combination but I also think it would look lovely in pinks and lilacs. I used another set when I made this card touches of texture this set is great to give a little texture.

Love what you do

These are two cards I made using the Love what you do stamp set I made the one on the right  for a friends birthday  and loved it so much  I made a second one for class.

  • I used whisper white card as the main card trimmed to 6 x 6 then trimmed a panel for the middle 4.5 inch in blackberry burst I then trimmed a white panel a little smaller to stamp onto.
  • I used the stamp set love what you do and stamped two sets of flowers onto using blackberry burst ink for the outline then for the inner stamp I used powder pink ink, i then wrapped some thin white satin ribbon around the bottom of the panel.before I stuck it down onto the berry burst card
  • The panels for the sentiment were 2 inch deep by 3 inch wide and again the white was a little smaller to stamp my favorite sentiment onto,  after stampin my sentiment I then wrapped a thin white ribbon around the bottom of this panel the only panel I raised was the sentiment which I offset to the right side so I would not cover too much of the flowers.

  • Take a piece of whisper white and stamp the dog if you want to use the additional stamp ie the dots for a Datamation  or the  patch stamp and stamp your dog using smokey slate then stamp a collar then stamp the plain stamp shaped like the kennel in crumb cake. then use the other stamp shaped like a kennel with the wood grain  pattern on over the top  then I stamped a small sentiment JUST FOR YOU in crumb cake ink  trimmed this down and stuck onto the front of the kennel.
