Back at Last

I must admit that I've not blogged for quite a while as the shows have taken me away from the computer. I do miss it though and so I am getting on with creating again. This is today's effort which uses the fantastic hydrangea stamp from Time To Stamp that is made by I Brake for Stamps.

To make it:
  1. Colour the hydrangea stamp with the Art and Graphic Pens from Kuretake and stamp it twice, colouring up between stamping. Use the H2O water brush to move the paint a little and added some extra colour where the shadows should be.I cut the images out and then got on with the rest of the card.
  2. Cut a base card 10.5cm x 28cm. Score this at the 14cm point to make a card 10.5cm x 14cm when folded.
  3. Cut a piece of pink card and scored it and then cut it to fit over the join in the base card.
  4. Stamp the message, which is from the Inspirational sayings plate, on a piece of card and cut it out to leavea a small border. Mounted this on to a piece of pink card. This was then stuck to the base card.
  5. Stick the hydrangea images slightly overlapping on to the card with a mixture of adhesive and foam pade. The adhesive was for the bottom hydrangea and the foam pads for the upper image.
  6. Decorated the lower part of the card with a broken line of green, use one of the greens that used on the stamp for colour continuity.

Black, White and one other colour

I've just seen the challenge on Stamp Something for black, white and one other colour and the pink and black challenge on Ooh-la-la Creations so...


I used my fabulous stamp from the Glamour Girls sheet from Time to Stamp and paired it with the flowers that have just arrived on my doorstep throw in a bit of pink spotty ribbon and a button and here's my card. The paper is from Doodlebug Design.

Happy crafting.

Hydrangeas

I seem to be on a roll lately and the cards are coming thick and fast. This is today's effort and I have to say that I am quite happy with it.


To make it:
1. You colour the hydrangea stamps with the Art and Graphic Pens from Kuretake and you stamped it twice, colouring up between stamping.

2. You then used the H2O water brush to move the paint a little and added some extra colour where you think that the shadows should be.
3. Cut the images out and then got on with the rest of the card.
4. Cut a base card 10.5cm x 28cm. Score this at the 14cm point to make a card 10.5cm x 14cm when folded.
5. Cut a piece of pink card and scored it and then cut it to fit over the join in the base card.
6. Stamp the message, which is from the Inspirational sayings plate, on a piece of card and cut it out to leavea a small border. Mounted this on to a piece of pink card. This is then stuck to the base card.
7. Stick the hydrangea images slightly overlapping on to the card with a mixture of adhesive and foam pade. The adhesive was for the bottom hydrangea and the foam pads for the upper image.
Decorate the lower part of the card with a broken line of green. One of the greens that was used on the stamp.

Rose to the Manor Born.


If you want to make something like this then you will need to use:
The rose stamp from the Flowers and Leaves unmounted rubber stamp sheet from Time to Stamp.
3 Pink buttons
Some Scrapbooking paper in a fairly subtle shade

The message stamp from the Inspirational Sayings sheet from I Brake for Stamps.
16mm Chiffon ribbon in willow.
Art and Graphic pens from Kuretake. I used the following colours to ink up the stamp: 56, 57, 200, 202.
Stazon in Stone Grey for the message.


Below is the stamp sheet for you to see all of the fantastic stamps that are on it and remember that it can be bought for only £20.


If you click on the image you will be taken straight to the product. You will probably recognise many of the stamps from cards that I've already made.
