Whilst I've been off line I've not stopped buying stamps and things - well you can't can you? :o))
So being a member of Crafters' Companion I was offered Souffle the Duck CD and stamps using some of my loyalty stamps. Too good an offer to miss. So this is a card I've made with that.
I already had a Popcorn the Bear CD and just made this card from some bits left over from some of the decoupage.
I also had some freebie papers from Creative Cardmaking magazine, which I love, so I made this card for one of the girl's birthdays at work. She was chuffed with it and I felt a bit guilty as I made it out of freebies, but you couldn't tell.
I even used a bit of the freebie 'ribbon' to embellish the insert page too. Well I could afford to, couldn't I?
Then, of course I HAD to buy the new Jayne Nesterenko Duo's Stamp sets and here are a couple of cards I made with them. They really are lovely and I am very pleased with them.
Using the Wishing Line set of stamps, I stamped the trees in the background direct to card and coloured in with watercolours. The the little mice I stamped, coloured, cut out and stuck onto the card and then I stamped the little mouse again, coloured him in, punched him out with a circle punch and then used glossy accents to give a sheen to it, and then matched the circle with the rest of the card. I have to admit, the circle bit took me longer than I thought, but it'll probably be easier next time! The flowers I just sparkled using Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle and then glittered as well.
I was very pleased with this one and shall experiment a bit more using other stamps. What do you think?
Finally using the Crafting Companions stamp set I made this one.
This one is so simple but very effective. Again this can be used in several ways and different colours but I think this looks very elegant.
Well I'm off to do some more card-making. Enjoy your weekend. xx
