Spring Flowers

Good morning everyone

Some Woodware Clear Magic Spring Flowers this week
which are available HERE

All the papers that I used are from the Frolic Perfect Prints 6x6 paper pad

Using Black Onyx Versafine, I stamped the flower image on to the pink paper
I then stamped the image on to a sheet of the butterfly paper and also a green paper
before cutting out the flowers and buds from the butterfly paper and the leaves from the green paper

I attached the pieces to the pink paper using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue
With a green Promarker pen I coloured the small leaves and centres of the flowers.  I also added some shading to the paper pieced leaves

I then layered the papers on to a Craftwork Cards Straight Edge 148x148mm card blank

To finish off, I added some Star Dust Stickles Glitter Glue for sparkle and
drew some dots and dashes with a black fine liner pen

Some people...

Hi! It's Georgina with my regular Thursday post. I have a card to share with you today using the lovely Cardio Majestix stamp set Mum's Garden available from Lisa B Designs.

To create the card blank I cut a piece 210x198mm of dottie card lilac. I score the card in half to form a DL card blank (210x99mm). I then cut a strip of white card. I used a corner rounder to punch the corners of the white card and the card blank.

I stamped the flowers from the Mum's Garden set using Grape and Heliotrope VersaColor ink pads. Around the edge of the white stamped card I added blank dots. I attached the white strip to the card blank.

To finish the card I added Opal White Liquid Pearls to the centre of the flowers.

Sue Wilson with Anna Marie Designs......

Good morning crafters, how are we today?
I thought I would show you today some of the samples that I have been making with the fabulous Sue Wilson Dies and Anna Marie Designs card and die cut trellis.......
They are quite CAS which I don't so a lot of but I must admit I really enjoyed making these......
For this first card I used Anna Marie Designs Aquamarine Dottie Card with an overlay of the die cut Trellis......
I also used a matching die cut sentiment

I die cut the Classic 3D Bow in white and Aquamarine dottie card and mixed them, I love the look that this gives.......

I used the quilled leaves die and cut some white leaves to tuck in to the bow and then added some ready made flowers that I sell in the mobile shop and added a clear rhinestone sparkler to the centre of them......

The next card was made in a similar way just using different colours and changing the elements around a bit.....
For this one I used Powder Pink Dottie Card and co-ordinated it with Passion Pink Striped Card 
I cut away part of a sheet of the trellis to add an interesting border to the bottom of the card.....

I used the Classic 3D bow die in the pink dottie card and then die cut in white card the Lattice 3D bow and again mixed them up. I added a matching sentiment as same as the last card......

Again using the Quilled Leaves die in white card and adding some flowers and Clear Rhinestone sparklers to the centres......

Let me know what you think, I will be back on Saturday with a little more inspiration.....
Hugs Lisa.B.x

More Card-io Samples

Hello, Kirsten here. The Card-io promotion may be over, but I found some more samples & thought those of you not at the class a few weeks ago might like to see them.
I used three of the Flutterby Garden butterflies as the focal image on this card, stamping them & colouring the layer behind with Turquoise Versacolor ink & heat embossed with WOW white EP after applying Versamark ink through the Imagination Crafts Bubble stencil onto a piece of
 Cool Grey Dottie card from Anna Marie Designs.


This card has stamps from the Greenery 1 set stamped onto dark purple card stock with white Versacolor ink & a piece of Anna Marie Designs die cut Trellis card placed on top with foam pads. The birdhouse was stamped onto dark purple card with Versamark & heat set with WOW silver EP.


I stamped the flowers from the Sweet Birdhouse onto scrap card with Atlantic & Neptune Versacolor inks, cut them out & arranged them on the trellis with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear glue.


This card has the waste from the trellis card arranged behind the die cut circles, with the Flutterby Garden butterflies stamped in Versacolor Turquoise. The quote is from the Say It With Flowers set. The printed card stock is Anna Marie Designs Dottie Lilac & Striped Olive Green.


This card also uses a stamp from the Greenery 1 set. I stamped with Black Versacolor & heat set with WOW clear embossing powder onto a piece of Anna Marie Designs Cool Grey Dottie card. On top is a piece of white card which I dry embossed with the Embossalicious Lattice folder, I used a punch to make the decorative edge & added silver liquid pearls. On the bow is another Greenery 1 image, stamped onto scrap card, heat set with silver EP & cut out.


I wanted to see if the Versacolor inks would give a letterpress effect & I’m happy to say that they did. It’s a very subtle effect, which is nice when you want a simple background. I just swiped the inks – Bamboo, Atlantic & Turquoise - over the embossing folder, making sure it was on the side that would go on top of the side of the card that would be shown & gently patted them with a baby wipe. These inks are very juicy, so they will move easily. After embossing, the flowers stand out white with the splatters in the background.


I stamped the flowers from the Sweet Birdhouse set over the splatters & added a little
Diamond Sparkle Medium to the lower embossed flower.
