Catching up and Sympathy

April 28th, 2015

I have been busy with work and bootcamp, and am very behind with my posts.  I’ll put them up over the next few weeks.

Sympathy card

Sympathy card

This is a card I made for one of my friends when his mother passed away.  The paper and topper are from a Melissa Frances set, edged with blue and antique linen distess ink.  I wanted something elegant and simple.

Art Deco revisited

October 12th, 2012

This was for my friend’s birthday a few weeks ago.  I found a gorgeous gift bag with 1920s images on it, and decided to make a card to match.  The main colours on the bag (other than black) were pink and turquoise so I focused on using them.

Vintage Art Deco

The art deco stamp was stamped onto white paper, then coloured with chalks for a soft pastel effect.  This was mounted onto a metallic cream cardstock that had a slight pattern.  This in turn was mounted on turquoise cardstock that had been embossed with flourishes using my manual die cutting and embossing machine.  The cream base card was stamped repeatedly with a lily flourish stamp and then the assemblage was placed on top.

Wedding dress card

My manager is getting married this weekend, and this is the card  I made for her, from our team at work.

Emma’s card

This is A4 folded to A5 size.  Copper Brilliance ink edging the card stock.  Images stamped on Sheer Heaven vellum, and dress coloured with Twinkling H2os. Mounted on metallic cream cardstock with pewter flower shaped brads, and then on to patterned metallic patterned paper that has been cut with deckle edged scissors.  Flowers attached with gem centres.

baby card

July 17th, 2009

This is for someone at work who is about to have twin girls.  I tried to use the baby stamp twice but it looked stupid, so I just went with one.  I was going for a colourful, funky feel – it is ok, but not what I was trying to achieve.

This time I have also scanned the envelope (which I always decorate for hand delivered cards).
