Crafty Cardmakers And More Challenge #139- Shaped Card


Hello, today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and more and this weeks challenge is to make a shaped card. 

For my card I have cut a birdhouse shaped card base using my Silhouette and covered the base with some wood effect paper and some pink paper from my stash. I have used some stamps from Hobby Arts 'Birdsong' stamp set. I stamped the images with 'London Fog' Memento ink and coloured them with Copic markers before cutting them out. I attached them to the card with 3d foam. I added some Glossy Accents to the bids eye, beak and feet. The sentiment is from the 'Birthday Collection' of stamps, which is also by Hobby Art and had been embossed in Gold. I finished the card with some Stickles glitter glue.

I hope you like my card, and please take the time to visit my fellow DT's blogs to check out their beautiful creations.

Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge #138- Make Your Own Background


Hello, today sees the start of the new fortnightly challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More. Pamellia is hosting this fortnight and has chosen the theme of Make Your Own Background. 

For my card I have used an embossing folder by Crafts- Too to emboss a piece of Crafters Companion. I then used Spectrum Aqua markers to paint the feathers, before applying gold gilding wax over the raised areas. The stamp came with this months issue of 'Quick Cards Made Easy' magazine, and has been stamped with Black Archival Ink and also water coloured. I used a sentiment that came with the image and heat embossed it in gold. The scalloped frame was cut with a Spellbinders die. I also cut two feathers from the background underneath the image and added them with 3D Foam, along with some ribbon and a flower from my stash. 

I hope you like my card, and please take the time to visit my fellow DT's blogs to check out their beautiful creations.
