Thanks Card

This card was very quick but also very pretty. I made it for my friend mum after she looked after my guinea pigs while I was away for the weekend. Firstly I ran a plain white notecard through my Cuttlebug and a Stampin' up embossing folder called Delicate Designs Textured Impressions - I love how it creates a lace effect. The sentiment was die cut using a Paper Smooches die and a scrap of blue cardstock. The flowers were stamped and die cut from the Wplus9 More Fresh Cuts set. I used Hero Arts shadow inks in shades Butter Bar, Passion Flower, Green Hills, Forever Green, Mint Julep and Soft Sky. I also used Pumpkin Pie and Pool Party from Stampin' Up.  I used Dovecraft silicone glue to adhere the flowers to create lots of dimension.

Fairytale Pop-Up Wedding Card

This card means alot to me as I made it for my little brothers wedding. I used a white notecard from Papermania as the card base. 

The centre of this card is by far my favourite part. I had so much fun creating the pop-up. For the landscape I used various green patterned paper from my stash. I created the look of hills and grass using the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio and Lawn Fawn Grassy Border dies. The rainbow and heart were die cut from more Lawn Fawn Let's Polka paper, using my Cricut Explore and an image from the Create-a-Critter cartridge. The remaining images were stamped using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I used the knight, princess and castle images from the Royal Cuteness stamp set by Paper Smooches and I used the drago, unicorn and second castle images from Critters Ever After by Lawn Fawn. Again, I coloured the images with Spectrum Noir pencils and blended with pencil stubs and blending solution. I used a Uniball white gel pen to create cute freckles on the images. Finally I added a sentiment, also from Critters Ever After, and a few more mini flowers punched from paper scraps. Magic!

Welcome Baby Card

This card was made for friends on the birth of their son. Firstly I stamped a Neat & Tangled Sunburst in Hero Arts Soft Vanilla ink. The kangaroo image from the Critters Down Under stamp set from Lawn Fawn was stamped using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I then coloured it using Spectrum Noir blendable pencils and blended with paper stubs and blending fluid. I created a faux-bokeh appearance using circle stamps from various stamp sets in my stash and Papermania gold embossing powder. I then added sequins and completed the card with  Stampin' Up gold bakers twine.
