Day 18 – A Different Type of Card!

Ok, I was just fiddling with this one!  What to do with a couple of wet crumpled flowers? lol.  I also cut some leaf shapes and roughly crumpled them to give some interest as the two flowers looked a bit odd on their own! If you wish to see the video of how to make [...]

Day 17 – folded layers Card

This is a sweet picture of a little girl, and one that I would think, would definitely appeal to Grannies everywhere!  Ooh, is that being ageist? Anyway, I used a whole 6×6 piece here and border punched opposite sides and then put in graduated folds for interest.  I suppose I got the idea so that [...]

Day 16 – Blue and the Big hat again

Simple, but made much more effective by the layering of a couple of contrasting layers of border-punched patterned papers.

Day 15 – Using up the left overs for Vintage Cards

I realise I said I would put these up “tomorrow” and it’s a bit later than that, but se la vie!  I only have so much energy! So here are the two cards I made using the left overs from the cards in the previous post!

Day 14 – 2 for the Price of 1

My original idea was to create a load of cards for sale in the Tearooms, and to make a number the same so that I could make cards quicker.  Well it didn’t really work because the papers I had bought only had one page of each design!  Plus I was trying to use up scraps, [...]

Day 13 – Lady with a Big Hat!

This is just a small card – 4×4″, or a little over, I used all three Martha Stewart punches I bought as a set from QVC recently, on this one! The Belly-band punch in the darker blue, the border punch in the middle at the top and the corner punch.  I particularly like the way [...]

Day 12 – Sepia Tone Card

The image for this card was fairly brown (ie, sepia as opposed to black and white) so I went with the colour theme on the background colour and the embellishments. Another lesson in layering there… a bit of lace gathered into a flower with a flower on top (white one coloured with an ink pad) [...]

Day 11 – One more for the Road

So this image is the same as the last couple of cards, but I want to show you how the same picture can be used in many different ways, even more so when it is a black and white picture. I have printed this image slightly smaller to fit this size card, which is only [...]

Day 10 – Same again, but different

Ok, so this is the same image as yesterday’s card, but look at the difference in treatment and colours!  Agais a single piece of patterned paper wrapped around the card front and a little matting and embellishing.

Day 9 – Next…..

Regular readers will recognise this image as I have used it before.  It IS one of my favourites… such a serene picture and versatile for a lot of occasions. I’ve used the “Belly Band” punch in white for this one.  Silver card mat under the picture, although in the photo here it just looks a [...]
