lotv white with a hint of colour

Hi there thanks for visiting card no 2
ooh this was tricky first time around, only got a big shot so have to think where I am going to emboss. I started out with an a3 piece of card, chopped down the middle lengthwise, I shaped around one end (sorry you can't see because I am rubbish at taking photos) then embossed sections with old sizzex embossing plates, left a bit smooth on the front so I could stamp. I used a lotv stamp, stamped directly onto the card glittered and coloured the base layer, stamped again and cut it out, layered it up with foam pads. I die cut a circle added some waste of another piece behind, then die cut another circle embossed with swiss dots to layer on top. I have used my marianne leaves and swirls and made some little roses phew lot of messing but quite pleased and love the stamp.

Contemporary Christmas card

Hi made this card for enfys going buggy challenge, to use contemporary colours on a christmas card.
I have used a kanban stamp coloured with distress inks,I stitched some very fine gauzy material over the top of the image and papers using a fine metallic thread ( had to rethread the machine about a dozen times the thread kept snapping) I had this idea that I was going to pad it and quilt it silly me how was I going to do that its paper!!!! Added some stamped poinsettias and glitter leafs,some snowflakes and gems.
Not totally happy but it took me ages, will try again angxxx

lotv majic box

Hi there thanks for visiting, saw these little xploding boxes on lotv inspirations and thought I would give it a go.
Really enjoyed making it, but next time must allow extra space for scoring papers, there is some small gaps when I was covering the box, never mind.
so my pics are not very good
I used lotv fairy on tiptoes stamp. coloured with promarkers, some papers got in a goodie bag.  The flowers I made out of watercolour paper I had splodged pearly paint all over both side before die cutting, added little papermania buttons to the centre of the flowers and added some glitter and smirk ribbon.  The little springy flowers are stuck on to acetate with hot glue gun. I managed to get everything tucked back in the box, not sure how springy it will still be.

chloe white on white

Hi there thanks for visiting
Made a card with a new stamp, bought from the Don Valley papercraft show, bit disappointed with the show, a few people who were advertised to be there did not make it.
Any way though very friendly,cheap to get in and got most of the stuff on my list.
Saw this stamp from stamps by chloe (www.chloescreativecards.co.uk) and had to have it.
Stamped on white centura pearl with wow embossing platinum sparkle, and then again with stampendous white sparkle. I cut all the flowers out and stuck them on with foam pads, added some gems.  Mat and layered with silver mirri and more centura pearl, edged with punch and added some gems and ribbons.
Thanks for looking angxxx

I have used Fancy from saturated canary, my printer was not playing nice, so ended up printing it on wrong paper for promarkers and ended up colouring with watercolour pencils and sakura gel pens. Also used spotty pink card and black paper. I rummaged through my bitty box and found all these different flowers I have tried making, added some pink glitter and some stamped leaves, black ribbon and gems
have a good day angxxx
