Tissue Paper Flower

Hello and a happy weekend.
The card I'm sharing with you today is one of my quicker cards to make.
The embossing folder is from Couture Creations one of their wallpaper designs called Drifting Endless and you can get it HERE.
These  folders have two designs on them, I have sponged some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink onto the bottom design, placed a piece of ribbon to separate the two designs and then added a flower made from tissue paper and an Ezycut scallop die.

Luka with Truck


My card today is a twisted easel card featuring Luka with truck, which I have coloured with copics....C9,C7,C5,C3,C1. R17,R29. YR23. B93,B95,B97. BG85,BG93,BG96. E000,E00,R20.
The green background is a Martha Stewart punch around the page set called Cherish.
I have stitched some embroidery thread through one row of the punched out dots and hung a couple of wooden beads from the end of the strands of cotton.

Butterfly and Daisy's

The background on this card was made with the In Stitches embossing folder from Craft Concepts with some Liquid pearls added and the flowers I made from Angies E-Book.
The cardstock I have used is actually lilac but it photographed as blue, I think I need to learn how to use my new camera better.

60th Birthday

It's been awhile again since my last post I see, time does gets away from me.

I've had parts of this card on my work space for a while and have finally got it put together.
The birds are a Marianne creatable die from which I have cut the branch and leaves they are sitting on.
The bird cage is also a Marianne Creatable die which I love, I've given it a bit of shaping so its not sitting flat on the card.
The central ivory flower I made by folding quite a few ( sorry I didn't count them) layers of  waxed lunch wrap which I then ran through the cuttlebug with a scalloped die (jounaling block from quickkutz).
I then pierced a whole through the centre of them all and attached a brad, then I scrunched each layer of the waxed lunch wrap around the brad and then spread each layer out again, I was quite pleased with effect.
The small white flowers where also done with layers of lunch wrap sewn together with a small white bead.
The paper is a Christian Re Design.
The little book shapes are Spellbinders label 7.

Marci - Just for You

Marci  (FatCats) was coloured with copic markers, then cut out with a circle die, while still in the die I then sponged some ink around Marci, then layered that onto a red circle die.
The layer behind the circles was made with the Drifting Endless Couture creations embossing folder (FatCats), to which I have added some colour with copic markers gell pens and liquid pearls.The sentiment tag and the pieces behind the scalloped edge is Fancy Tags 2 from spellbinder (FatCats).The border on the red layer was made with the Martha Stewart punch around the page set Cherish, (FatCats)
I glued some lace behind the red heart shaped mirror tile and added some leaves, tiny punched flowers with Liquid pearls for the centers and my card was complete.
