Feeling the Love!

Well it may be cold and stormy outside but its warm and cosy in our home!
I have had a great day....posted my samples for the next clarity show then went to look at cars..and came home knowing that next Saturday I will have a new car on my drive! SOOOOO excited now... I hope this week flies by!

Next weekend will be all about C.....Car on Saturday and Clarity on Sunday don't get much better than that!

Anyway I thought I would show 2 more of last months samples. These two used the Garden heart and Kind Hearts Verse

This one used the magic foil card where you stamp in versamark and use clear embossing powder.

As you heat it the image appears in the shiny foiled finish.

I Thought this style of card suited the stamp as it highlighted the heart as a main image with the verse underneath it.

The flowers are Sweetlilac flowers and I think just finished off the card really nicely.

The magic foil card comes in silver as well and is just as it says on the label....MAGIC!

The next card was a small square card blank.

I cut a piece of pearlescent card and stamped the verse in the centre of it.

I then masked off an area over the verse and using raspberry ink I stamped the heart randomly to create a background. I tried not to overlap it and also to get any blank bits.

I sponged around the mask in grey then I removed the mask and masked off the background and using a stencil brush I added a pale pink round the verse.

I used the flourish from the numbers set and matted it onto a a piece of raspberry pearlescent card and mounted it onto a 6 x 6 card blank. Tiny diamonte hearts finished it off.

If you have been to have a look today please leave a comment

Happy Saturday

  3. After seeing that card on C&C, I treated myself to some of that card. It is so beautiful. Can't wait to see your new car. Don't do what I did. I picked up mu new motor on Monday morning, drove to Derby and then on to Nottingham on Wednesday,, then on to Wollaton on Thursday morning, and had to rely on the lovely Dave to park it for me. It was just so much bigger than my previous vehicle, and I just could not judge the width, length or anything. xx Maggie
