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