Mermaids - Lavinia


How is your day going?  As a treat today, we have a second post of a few non Christmas cards to cheer you.

These cards were created using  mainly Lavinia stamps. Smaller images (crab, starfish and small shells) are stamps from Kaisercraft.
Backgrounds were first created on white card using Distress and Distress oxide inks.
Images were then stamped over the top using Versafine inks.
Completed panels were fixed to coordinating  coloured card bases and highlights added with wink of stella glitter pens and stickles glitter glue. Stickles  was used around the edges of the panels to create a frame.

Add a little magic to your day.

Till next time
be happy

Card Set Stampin' Up Everything Eleanor...


The following set of 4 Birthday cards are featuring the beautiful Everything Eleanor stamp set from Stampin' Up. Using a green card base and a single white layer, here is a great way to use the same stamps in a variety of ways for a totally different look...

Mask and bunch the main image on the bottom left corner...

Stamp them in a row with the edges touching...

Same again, trimming around the bottom edges of the flowers...

Randomly stamp the flowers all over the card front...

Adding a faux stitched edge and rhinestone flower centres complete each card. The Happy Birthday wording is from Stampin' Up's Happiest Birthday Wishes set.

Hope you are finding the time to create something beautiful today,
