White on White

Good Afternoon Everyone it's a gorgeous sunny but cold day here, hope you're having a lovely day wherever you are.
I'll show you today's card in just a minute but before I do I'd like to say thank you for all the lovely comments you have been posting on my blog, I love reading them and they are very much appreciated.

The card today is one I made after being challenged by some friends to make a white on white card with an image. I was a bit dubious to start with but once I got started I really enjoyed making it, though I have to admit the first couple of attempts went into the bin.

This was a tricky one to photograph but the red background and bright sunshine helped.

The card is 6x6, the first layer has been embossed using a swiss dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
The second layer is the same white card which has some snowflakes stamped  ( free gift, I think) on it and heat embossed using some white embossing powder from Stampendous.
The cute image is gift box bears from La Pashe, this has been die cut using a die from Xcut and I have added some crystal glitter to the edge.
I was orginally going to using snow flakes die cut from glitter card but it looked a bit grey so I die cut them from white card then sprayed them with stick and stay from Crafters Companion and then dipped them in crystal glitter and got a lovely fluffy effect.
I finished the card off with the Memory Box die Frosty Border, a ribbon and bow from my stash, a sentiment printed from my computer and a snowflake embellishment also from my stash.

I'd love to know what you think, so please leave a little comment

Butterfly Kisses

Hi there, hope you're all keeping well on this lovely, bright, sunny day, it feels like Spring is on the way.

This post was originally planned for yesterday but unfortunately my cold hadn't quite cleared up and I ended up with a migraine on top of this, so really wasn't up to it. Anyway, enough whinging, the reason I was hoping to post yesterday is because this card was for a lovely friend's birthday ( would call her an old friend but I'm not sure she would appreciate it ).

The image is Lizabeth - Butterfly Kisses by Heather Valentin, when I first saw this digi I immediately thought of my friend as she loves butterflies. I have coloured Lizabeth using my Promarkers, Flexmarkers and a little bit of chalk for the ground. I went for a favourite combination of mine, green and pink although I have gone for a deeper shade of pink and a blue/green this time. The image has been matted on to some pink co'ordinations card and then on to some green card which has been embossed with butterflies using a folder which came free with a magazine. This has then been mounted onto paper from the Spring Feast paper pack by Trimcraft and this has been distressed at the edges with Bundled Sage distress ink. The dies used are Fanciful Flourish from Cheery Lynn and the butterfly is by Marianne Designs ( cut from both the pink and green card and layered up). I have finished the card off using some flowers from Wild Orchid, some butterflies - punched using a tonic punch, a sentiment and some pink pearls from my stash. I have also decoupaged the butterfly that Lizabeth is holding to give it some dimension.

I do hope she had a lovely birthday and didn't overdo the wine last night, lol.

Right I'm off now to play Wii Sing with my two girls, heaven help the neighbours

I'd love to know what you think, so please leave me a little comment.

Key to my heart

Hi Everyone, hope you've all had a lovely day today, whatever you were doing.

Today's card is a Valentine's card, well it is only a few days away.

The card is a 6 x 6 easel card, the green matting layer is from my stash the lovely pink heart paper is from Love Letters paper pack. The fabulous digi is Lizabeth Key to My Heart by the lovely Heather Valentin and I have coloured it with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I have cut the speech balloon on my poor neglected Silhouette and the key is a die from Joycrafts. The stopper has been made using a Dovecraft Border Punch Ribbon Heart. The card has been finished off using a green vevet ribbon and a pink heart, both from my stash.

I'd love to know what you think, so please leave me a little comment.
