Quick Card

I got some new stamps last week but haven't had much time to play with them so decided to make a very quick card with them tonight.

I cut a folded an 11.5 cm card blank out of white pearlised card.

I then cut a matt slightly smaller than the card blank and coloured using Stormy Sky Distress ink and stamped over it using Kaisercraft Magic Happens Clear stamps available from Crafty Boots in the same colour.

I used the sentiment from the stamp set to make my topper stamped again in the same colour Distress ink and cut it out using Spellbinder dies the scalloped matt is also cut using Spellbinder dies.

I then added Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA in the corners (just for a change lol).


2nd Crafty Boots Challenge Card

This is the card I made for the 2nd Crafty Boots Challenge.

I cut and folded a 6 inch card blank and cut another piece of card slightly smaller and used the That Special Touch Mica Masks Delicate and Black soot Distress ink to make my back ground.

I then cut 3 strips of card and used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, Black Soot Distress ink and matted on to white card to make the panels.

I used Creative Expressions Fanciful Phrases stamps for my sentiment stamped again in Black Soot Distress ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder and cut out using Spellbinders dies, the scalloped edged matt was also cut using Spellbinder dies and coloured in with the same Distress ink.

I used the Spellbinders dies to cut the butterflies out of pink card from my stash.

To finish of my card I used my favorite Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA around the corners and added white organza ribbon and hat pins from my stash.

Thanks for looking

1st Crafty Boots Challenge card

Today was the launch of our first challenge over at Crafty Boots and here is the card I made for it.

I used Joanna Sheen's flower bouquet - in a jug stamp and coloured it in with promarkers (sorry I forgot to make a note of what colours I used again will try harder to remember for next time)

The sentiment is from Creative Expressions fanciful phrases stamp set.

All the papers are from the fairy tale collection from Nitwits.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The ribbon is from my stash and I used my favorite Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Pearl PVA to add the pearls on the edge.

I also used a Martha Stewart punch to get the scalloped edged on my paper.

Really hope you can join us for our first challenge over at Crafty Boots
