Here are my latest cards.....
Here I chose a pink base card and added a purple paper from the Papermania collection called 'Heather', which I cut around with my trusty wavy scissors.
I then added a plain purple card also cut by wavy scissors and placed a topper on top of that with a picture of a lady on it and is aptly called 'Framed Ladies - in Lavender' by Kanban.
I then stamped in purple the sentiment and added a little lilac gingham bow.
This is blue mini car card set, done in decoupage and placed on a blue base card and upon that a blue paper.
I added some stripes of the border paper that came with it and placed the circles on top of them and then added the sentiment at the top. Very easy peasy card to do!
Sadly I've had to make a condolence card for the family of my Uncle Jim who died last week.
I chose an embossed white card onto which I placed some lilac flowered paper from Papermania 'Heather' pack again.
I then cut an oval with wavy scissors in purple and then placed an oval topper which has a decoupaged lily flower on top of that.
I printed out some sentiments in Purple and chose 'With Sympathy' onto a purple tag. To finish I placed a row of purple flowers at the bottom of card.
The next 3 cards are ones I've designed from the hand pressed flower pictures that were on an old calender - see previous posts for the other ones I made!
This one I chose a pale blue base card and onto that put a deep turqoise card. I then placed a sheet of 'Kate Knight's' paper stack that I had received free from 'Cardmaking & Papercraft' Magazine. It is blue with blue flowers on and picks up the blue flowers in the calender picture which I had cut with my wavy scissors and placed on foam pads to slightly raise it. I then added a blue tag with 'Best Wishes' on and a little blue dragonfly. The wording on the topper says: 'Be like flower, turn your faces to the sun'. by Kahlil Gibran.
I chose a cream base card and added a peach card that I had stamped with my 'Rose' border punch all round the edges.
I then added some darker peach polka dot paper which complimented the calender topper with its dark peach flowers, which I had cut around with my wavy scissors (again) and placed on foam pads to raise it. I added a strip of peach sequins across one corner and a sentiment of gold on white 'Especially for You'.
The wording on the topper states - ' Adopt the pace of Nature: her secret is patience' by Ralph Waldo-Emerson.
This one is on a cream base card and I chose a dark burgandy with cream flowers on to compliment the burgandy flowers in the topper. The Paper is also from Kate Knights paper stack.
I cut out some more of the cream flower from another sheet and decoupaged it on top of the main flower and place a little purple gem in the centre. I then added a cream sentiment 'With Best Wishes' on it.
I placed the calender topper on foam pads and cut around it with zig zag scissors. The wording says: 'To see a world in a grain of sand, And heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, Eternity in an hour' by William Blake. These cards look especially stunning in real life which isn't quite captured on photo!
