My friend gives me her Christmas Cards to upcycle and this little robin on a branch is delightful, so I cut him out and put him onto an embossed (StampinUp Cloudy Days) background. Used a red ribbon from another card of the same Christmas card batch. XCut words.
The first card has an embossed background called Dot Matrix, with a butterfly inked with Brusho Inks which I pressed my stamp into it. It came up beautifully! Made the word die cuts with the same ink colours. Then I made the second card the same way, then layered it, and Im quite pleased with the result.
This is a card made with Brusho Inks, which are powders that you wet to bring them alive! (used watercolour paper) I die cut the edges of the paper with Impression Obssession Hill Dies to give the wave shape, and mounted them on foam tape to add dimension. Added a stamped message in between. I am hoping this will be published in Creativity magazine soon, as a Readers Make, so keep an eye out for me!
Bumped into a friend and neighbour and she told me it was her Diamond Anniversary this week, so I quickly made this card for her and hubby. The heart is on the front of the card (Xcut heart die on glitter paper) and messages are from a shop bought card I just happened to have, for some reason I dont recall….inside is a docrafts embossing folder, middle cut out and Xcut number dies. Now, where to write the message from us to them….hmmmm….!
I love this Gorjuss Girl character, and here she is, stamped, paper pieced and coloured, standing in the rain. This was going to be a Get Well card but ended up being a rainy scene instead…mainly cos there was no room for a message! I used the Xcut Parenthesis dies for the framing. Ryns waterdrop stamps, and Xcut die grass and birds from the Family Tree die range, also from Xcut.
