BEHIND THE MASK AGAIN


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 .

BEHIND THE MASK


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.

CARNIVAL TIME


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.

HOME SWEET HOME



It has been a while but I am back and wondering where January went but still it means we are getting closer to my favourite time of the year Spring.
Today I am trying out my new Spellbinder dies for a welcome to your new house card and taking the colour inspiration from colourq 226 with lovely shades of pink.
 
 
The Spellbinders dies are die d-lites "Flutter Tree" and "Home Sweet Home" which I think are going to be two of my favourite dies and in particular the Flutter Tree which comes with those tiny butterflies that can be used with the tree or on there own.
 
 
A short post today but back soon so enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

AUTUMN IS HERE




Well it has been a while and cannot believe that we are nearly at the end of October and yesterday Tesco had the usual orange pumpkins in store ready for Halloween. A few years ago we went on holiday to San Fransico at this time of year and came across a pumkin patch where you pick up a wheel barrow and fill it with the most amazing collection of pumkins you could image as over there they really do go all out to celebrate this time of year.
 

Now onto a card which is inspired the season and also the challenge over at friday mashup where you have to include trees or leaves and or the colour orange or everything together.


 
 

 
 
This stamped tree is the Lollipop Tree stamp from IndigoBlu and then framed with gilding flakes.
Around the edge sprigs of leaves using Cheery Lynn die Flourish Leaf Strip and a couple of metal embellishments and then a sentiment to complete the card.
 
The weather is wet and horrible so a good excuse to carry on doing more crafting this afternoon before settling down tonight to watch the final of The Great British Bake Off on BBC2 can't wait although I do have a favourite.
 
Take care and do check in again soon
