I made this for a friends birthday. Hope you liked it, Trish!
Its made up of embossed vellum backed into green card. A flower die cut lays behind a circle with the honeyed jam jar and hungry bees is the main image.
Sequins glitter nicely against the vellum
A fellow dancer at our Modern Jive class is leaving as he’s moving to a town about an hour away. I will miss him as he’s a good dance partner! I made him a card entitled Pastures New. The background is embossed clouds. Two stamps for land and sky, and I coloured them with my water colour pens.
Heres another design using the Retiform techniques. Maybe good as a male card ? the images are separated by lines, again.
Here I made a sea themed card, and a bird and flora card. In the sea themed card I allowed space for gaps, between the images. In the floral/bird card I drew lines which gives the images a ‘pop out’ feel.
This seems to be one of the latest methods of card making! Retiform: a series of lined off, separated images. Its fun to do. Just use ‘post it notes’ to mask off sections of your card, then ink and stamp! You can see videos on You Tube to show you the method. Here I have made up a Steampunk themed card. Hope you like it. I used my lovely Ink Brushes to dust the ink onto the card, as it gives a lighter touch than daubers, I find.
Used this recycled Xmas image to make this simple card backing it onto a green card blank from my stash.
Found this yellow embossed paper and just had to add my Dovecraft dies to it!
Added tiny butterflies for summery effect!
Well, it does come around fast! Thanks to Kim Jolley of Stampinartfully blog for the inspiration on this card! Stamping onto Vellum paper gives a lovely effect.
This cute little doggie was on one of our Xmas cards, and I had this lovely dog paws die, so combined the two and made this card for a friends birthday. It helps that her dog looks like this one, so I am pretty sure she will get a kick out of it!
Sadly, we always need some of these cards in our card box….I have used a nice sun ray die, along with a heart and cross die on these two cards. Die cut words added.
