Well I have broken my second New Years resolution already which was that I would post on here daily...oops :( Having a few health issues at the moment and my motivation is suffering a bit but hubby says I need to spend time in my craft room and relax so who am I to argue lol
I did manage to sit down at the beginning of the week and make a few cards so here is the first one
This card is made using 'Ralph - Par-fect Day' from Digistamp Boutique, I love these images and have a few of them, they are wonderful to colour and this one also comes with a great sentiment 'Have a Par-fect Day' although I haven't used it on this card.
I used Promarkers/Spectrum Noirs to colour and the papers are LOTV (such a shame they have decided to stop selling their paper pads :( ) The little tag shape sentiment is from stampingallday.co.uk which is a brilliant company for individual sentiments, personalised ones etc
My next card is another DB image, this time a christmas one 'Snow Family'
Not a brilliant photo but you can make out a bit of the sparkle on there, the image was coloured with Promarkers and I added Diamond Stickles to the snow and presents, Wink of Stella was used on their hats and scarves and also on the white snowflake.
The snowflake dies I used are from Clearly Besotted as is the sentiment which I heat embossed in silver superfine WOW powder. The papers are Pink Petticoat and ribbon and pearls from my stash.
Next I made a couple of quick male cards for my box at my slimming group...
I had been diecutting some star flourishes and these stars are the 'waste' I had put them in a little pot on my desk and then I saw these Clearly Besotted sentiments when I was looking through my stash for something else, twenty minutes later I had made these two lol
I made up a couple of A6 card bases with some royal blue card I bought on Ebay, the stitched rectangle die used is an MFT blueprint one, the sentiments are stamped with pigment ink then clear embossed and I have added a touch of Wink of Stella to the stars for a bit of sparkle.
I always struggle with male cards but I was actually really pleased with how these turned out, a nice quick and simple card, I just hope they dont look a bit too simple !
Well if you are still here with me after all that waffle thank you so much for looking and if you can bear any more I will be back later with a few more cards ;)
