Perfume Bouquet

 Hey Crafty Friends

We used the Colorado Craft Company's - Perfume Bouquet stamp set in the 2020 December class for our calendars and I had some extra stamped images and finally got around to colouring some layers (benefit of pre-stamped images is that you don't mind making a card with 4 layers - LOL).

I started this card with a base of Bazzill Creampuff and added Cinder and then Laser paper.  On the Laser Paper, I blended Catherine Pooler Seafoam around the edges and then stamped (ok, stamped 4 images) the top of the stamp using a Sage ink pad.

I coloured the Perfume Bouquet with YG61, YG63, YG67, G28, Y000, Y00, Y21, Y28, YG91, YG95, YR23, YR24, E40, E41, E43, E47, YR20, R02, R05, R22 and E08.

I blended some Seafoam on another piece of Laser paper and stamped the words from the Perfume Bouquet stamp set.  I trimmed around the edges and adhere to some Cinder card and then onto the card using mounting tape.

The Flowers are in three layers with the middle and top layers added in mounting tape.

Hoping you have a crafty day.

Birthday Wishes

 Hey Crafty Friends

Sharing today a card made using Lawn Fawn's Mini String of Lights die set.  Yes - lots of die cutting, but love the finished card.

I started with a base of Bazzill Beeswax and Lily White.  On some Laser Paper, I blended Catherine Pooler's - All That Jazz ink pad.  I then use My Favorite Things - Confetti Stencil and blended the same ink pad through it to create the background and also stencilled a layer of confetti using clear Collage Medium for an extra layer.

I die cut the strings of lights from Bazzill Cinder card and then the lights from White card.  The lights are in two layers, firstly a solid light which I left white and then the top layer which has the highlight cut out and coloured them with Copic Markers.

There are lots of lights, just keep cutting is my take on this.  I added double sided tape on the back of the card to make it easier to adhere.

The Lights were coloured with Copic Markers - Y15, Y17, YR16, YR18, RV04, RV06, R27, R17, YG13, YG17, V15, V17.

I adhere them to the card and trimmed them off once on the Lily White layer.

I stamped 'Birthday Wishes' from Catherine Pooler's - All Around Wishes (I'm getting lots of use of this set lately, well worth a look) on Black card and embossed with WOW Opaque Bright White card.  I trimmed the words, layered on white and added the words to the card using mounting tape.

I think this card is a lot of fun and if you're prepared to start now, could make some great Christmas cards at the end of the year 😀.

Have a great day.

Altenew Delicate Clusters

 Hey Crafty Friends

We hope you had some time over the past couple of weeks for a little crafting time.

Robyn has been working hard catching up on kits, whilst Michelle has been preparing new card kits.  

We also had some time to play with some stamps we just hadn't put away and this includes Altenew's Delicate Clusters stamp and die set.

This card starts with a base of Bazzill Pomegrante, followed by Bazzill Twig and some scrapbook papers in blue and brown.

In the lower right of the card, I stamped Happy Birthday by Darkroom Door (DDRS143).

Now for the Delicate Clusters.  I stamped the flowers with ink pads from the Red Cosmos, Warm & Cozy and Green Valley range.  I added dots in the centre, inked with the Espresso ink pad.  I stamped 5 sets of flowers and die cut the using the matching die set.

I tied the flowers together with Twine and adhered them to the card using mounting tape.

A quick and easy card, which can be made in so many different colours.

Hope you have a great day.
