Inks and stamps

Hi All

 On today's card I've used my trustee distress ink some inkylicious stamps and for sun rays some dylusions gold paint through a sheena stencil, which I acquired because a friend had 2...big smiley face cos I'd wanted one for ages.

Sweet and simple!

As always thanks for your visit.

I've been playing with my brusho's again and this colour combo came from Floral Fantasies,    Brenda used lemon and lilac but I didn't have lilac so used a light sprinkle of violet, I think it should have been a bit heavier but I really like the colour combo. I added a ink embossed butterfly by Sheena Douglas coloured with the same brusho's and the wording stamp 
came from Bee Crafty.

I'll be giving it to my niece for her birthday, she is off to do her masters in a couple of weeks

As always thanks for popping by.

Birds and Blooms and a moan!

Hi All

Today's cards are using HFC stamps and dies from birds and blooms, one sheet of 12 x 12 paper, that I stamped with a stamp script, some word stamps and my trustee distress inks.  
The last two I used a spellbinder and tonic dies.

I really like HFC stamps and dies but I have one gripe with them and that is that the dies don't match the stamps and it really annoys me. There is a stamp in the stamp set that I don't have the die for and dies that I don't have the stamps for, what is that all about. 
It's really making me think hard before I purchase any more of them.

Sorry moan over here's my cards.

As always thanks for your visit.

Hi All

Just wanted to share a christening gift I've made, I'm not really sure about it, probably because it's outside my comfort zone. 
It's a shadow box with the child's initial and on the tag is the child's name and christening information 
I got the idea from the net, just hope they like it enough to put it on

Thanks for your visit.

Hello All

My lovely niece graduated from Swansea Uni and this is the card I made for her. 
Very easy to make with the help from my I'm not very good with these sorts of folds, usually end up using loads of card till I get it right.

As always thanks for your visit.

Delicate Asters

Hello All

How's it going, gorgeous weather at the moment, no idea how long we have it for but let's hope it's a while because my hubby is doing all the cooking on the bbq and all I've had to do is the salad and I'm not complaining. 

My card for today was for a friend at work, the card base has been made for a while but I didn't know how to finish it. Heartfelt Creations flower dies and the corners were one of those must have buys I needed and this is the first time I've used them must try harder to use my stash  :(  

As always thanks for your visit.

Hi ya

Today's card is for my niece, who will be 12 on Friday, I thought this a great image for a bit of a tomboy...
It's a digi image, but can't remember from where, coloured with brushos and distress inks, I also used some drawing gum to try and keep the white bits white.

As always thanks for visiting!
