Primrose wishes

A cute image from Aurora wings coloured with promarkers.

The papers are from my stash not sure of the brand as no longer have the packaging so few sheets left but works perfect with this image.

The card base is die-sire from Crafter's Companion as is the border die cut from white card.

The sentiment is a gold peel off .It's a light weight card that will be travelling to my mum-in-law in Tenerife.

Pastel love hearts

 I found some dies on Amazon that were considerably cheaper as they aren't well know brand names so I thought I'd give them a try. They took a while to arrive but I think it was worth it as they cut really well and this one is so pretty. 

I decided to use both the positive and the negatives (the  out cuts) . I decided to keep the same shape as the die as I think its pleasing to the eye.

I firstly coloured a piece of card using distress inks in pinks  and purples and water to get a soft random effect. I then cut the the die. I then cut it a second time in plain white card.  

I used some centura pearlised white card cut into 2 A5 cards. I added the white die cut full circle to one card and then the coloured die cut atop so it was slightly raised from the base. 

The second card I again built using stacks but this time using the negatives but not for all the hearts. I used the die as a template to create the shape adding a couple of hearts to the sides.

I haven't added a sentiment as I think these cards would be great for Valentine's day, anniversary, engagement or even wedding or birthday but I do love how they turned out.

I would like to enter these designs into the following challenges:-

HLS CAS - hearts

loves breeze

An anniversary card this time for a couple living overseas so it had to be kept small and light weight otherwise they have to go to the airport to collect it.

I decided to use and combine a couple of dies from Memory box and poppystamps . I used the floral breeze but where the flowers are add hearts that I had layered to give a chipboard effect but not too thick. Once stacked I coloured with promarkers.

I added deep pink card behind to show through the holes.

I stamped the sentiment again using pink promarker and a darkroom sentiment stamp.

 I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Bunnies not just for Easter.

I love white on white cards and just wanted to play. I decided to take my inspiration from the weather and as it was snowing white on white was definitely order of the day.

I used a selection of dies from memory box and a diorama  that I'd made a while ago that was on my craft room windowsill.

I used  a white base card and gate fold design. I cut a window in the large section of the card  which will be the front of my card, I cut another rectangle this time in vellum and adhered it to the front of my card.

I cut several large fir trees again in white and adhered one to the back of the vellum and cut one  in half sort of and adhered these to the front of  my card.I cut some meadow grass and bunnies in various sizes and created more layers with bunnies in between the layers.
I finished the card using crafter's companion silver glitter pen which I liberally coloured  over the trees and bunnies and grass. 

I haven't added a sentiment but think this could be an early made Christmas card or perfect for a winter birthday.
I love the effect it gives when the light shines through from the back.

I don't normally colour my cards with my pencils but wanted a different look , don't get me wrong I love my alcohol markers but they do have the problem of showing on the reverse of the card you are colouring. I used a kraft base card and stamped the golfer image directly onto the card in black ink and coloured with my oil based pencils, love the shine they have.

I stamped the golf bag onto white card again in black ink and again coloured with pencils then fussy cut the image out. I wanted to create the effect that the golf bag was more in the foreground.

I finished the card with a blue peel-off 'happy birthday'. Another quick CAS card and perfect for the golfing recipient.

I love these £D folders from crafters companion and the big die is also from there too and the matching stamps. I used this fab centura pearlised card and after embossing layered onto a plain white card base.

The word die 'snowflakes' I cut in holographic mirri-card and then on plain white card I stamped the accompanying sentiment in plain black ink. All in all a quick CAS card that I think has a bit of wow factor too.
