Memo / Jotters with Stampendous Laurel Burch...

Hello,

Sharing some more of our covered Jotters with you today. I have used assorted paper pieces from my stash, along with black, red and glitter card, rhinestones and stamped images.

The Butterflies and cat images are all from the same stamp set - Stampendous - Laurel Burch images with matching dies.





Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Ten is the die used to create the background for the cat Jotter.


I just love these Laurel Burch images! I have also purchased the dogs and the mermaid/fish stamp sets with matching dies...

Back again soon

The backgrounds were created first, using sponging and masking techniques, with distress oxide inks.

Take time to get lost in some more magical woodland scenes.

Dylusions Dyalog goodies....

Hello,

A bit of a different post for you today...

I watched a Ranger Ink youtube video recently here where Dyan Reaveley showed us her Dyalog range and I instantly fell in love!! How could you not!


So I purchased 1 of each of the covers...


and I selected which of the inserts that I knew I would use...


2 of the "Background" inserts, 1 "Handwriting" inserts, 1 "Ruled" insert, 1 "Black" insert, 2 "Blank" inserts, a set of the "Pocket" inserts and a pack of the bands.



I must admit it felt like Christmas when I opened my eagerly awaited parcel!!


Woohoo, after taking my photos to share with you, I have unwrapped and set up my two Dyalogs.

I am sure you will fall in love with this range of products!

Baby Cards - Kaszazz

Hello

A quick post today with some baby cards, created with products from Kaszazz.


The first card has an image from Early years collage sheet, die cut into an oval then layered onto pink, then white scalloped ovals die cut from pearl card. The stamped sentiment is also layered onto die cut ovals. These are then attached to an embossed, ribbon wrapped panel of white card and placed on to a white card base.


The Trio of birds has been stamped on to white card, coloured with watercolour pencils, then die cut. This was attached to a lemon pearl card die cut, then to an embossed, ribbon wrapped paper panel. This was all added to a white card base and a stamped, punched label attached.


The final card has vintage teddies stamped on to vanilla card, coloured with watercolour pencils, die cut and attached to ribbon wrapped patterned paper. A stamped die cut label was added and coloured buttons, tied with twine finished the design.

These cards are quick to make and give a great result.

Till next time

Birthday Cards for Kids

Hello

Do you know a little someone who is having a birthday?
Here are a couple of ideas for cards for them.


This card was a special order. The happy birthday is cut from a die by Kaszazz. The Grandson and the #2 are dies from Stampin'up. A dinosaur and tracks was stamped on to white card, then the dinosaur stamped a second time on to more white card, and fussy cut. A leaf frond was embossed then lightly chalked, behind the stamped dinosaur, the die cuts were added, then the panel was matted to patterned paper then on to a white card base. The cut out dinosaur was mounted on to the card. A hand drawn border was added to the panel, and a couple of candy dots finished the design.



























These cards have the magical touch for those who love princesses, knights in shining armour, and of course, unicorns.
Princess card coloured with watercolour pencils, and the other two with alcohol markers. Gemstones and touches of glossy accents were the final additions.

The little ones would love these cards.
