Been a while but I am back with another card inspired by justrite-Friday colour challenge using pink, yellow and purple which are lovely summery colours.
For the background I used Justrite "Floral Stitched Background" and the flower embellishment is from Justrite "Applique Flowers and Vintage Sentiment Tags".

To add the glitter to the petals I used a Quickie Glue Pen which is brilliant for adding little details like that. To finish off a strip of yellow ribbon and a few flat backed pearls.
Take care friends and hope to be back very soon.

Yes back again with another card for the Justrite Friday Challenge which I have enjoyed so much and will certainly be doing a lot more of this masking technique for future projects.
For my Easter card as before the stamped flowers are from Justrites stamp set "Stitched Flowers Vintage Tags" and coloured using Promarkers Mustard, Yellow, Buttercup and Mint Green and the green frame is their die set "Lacey Tiers".

Once again thanks for stopping by .

Today a card for a challenge over at Justrite Friday Challenge and where you use a masking technique. The stamp set I used was one of their new sets "Stitched Flowers Vintage Tags"which I found ideal for this challenge as the images were easy to cutout as masks.
I stamped the bottom flower first then masked before adding the leaves, masked the leaves then added the frame and finally masked the frame before added the final flower. This is a way of layering your stamped images without adding bulk and allowing for cheaper postage.

Image coloured with Promarkers in Mint Green, Antique Pink, Rose Pink and Baby Pink and the mounted onto a card using Spellbinders "Fanciful Lattice".
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for popping by.

Believe it or not the sun is trying to shine through the clouds today and looking in my garden I have some daffodils making an appearance letting us know that Spring is on its  way.
Today carnival is this weeks theme over at casology and a chance for me to use my new sets from Clarity Stamps.
The two sets used for this card are Word-Chain-3 and Journaling-Clear-Stamp-Set and the inks used were Dew Drop stamp pads in Lavender and Spring Pansy.

The carnival mask is from Spellbinders Venetian Accents and to finish off I added some flat backed gems. This was a quick card to put together and also cut the sides of the card at angles to add a bit more interest.
Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy what is left of your weekend.
