Always Remember – You Are Precious

Hello there. I have a couple of cards to share to day – one of which has the above encouraging sentiment, and one for a birthday:

On the first card:

I chose the stamp and use all the layers from Altenew ‘Remember This‘ stamp set. Once the flower was stamped, I masked it off and stamped the stem and a couple of the buds from the same stamp set. The sentiment is from a couple of stamp sets – ‘you are precious‘ is from the Altenew set, and ‘always remember’ is from the Stampin Up stamp set. A one layer card including some masking – very CAS.

The second card:

This took a little planning and a lot of masking. The flowers were stamped first – the outline, then I only used the middle of the three layers – quite effective I feel.

Each flower was masked – using the same mask just moving it around – and I stamped some of the leaves from the same stamp set around and about to fill some gaps, and only using the lightest shade of ink from the set of four – again from Altenew:

I tried a couple of different ways for the sentiment using the same stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn. the first one I tried was by stamping the words in black on white card-stock, but I felt the words didn’t stand out enough – it wasn’t bold enough – so I just die cut the two words out of black card and layered three together.

I like the boldness of the sentiment against the very feminine background.

Both cards will be entered together in the Twofer Card Challenge.

Big Hugs Z Fold

Hello. A new challenge has started at Cardz 4 Galz. I wanted to get the year started with virtual hugs and to be able to let someone know I was thinking of them. The theme is ‘more than one fold’, chosen by Billie A:

I played around with some fancy fold cards, and even made another card for the challenge – but I wasn’t happy with it. This is Take 2…..

I made a ‘Z’ fold card – white card base – and added some Stampin Up ‘Peaceful Poppies‘ DSP – which I’ve had for ages and just never got around to using. I wanted to add some of the embellishments which came with this series – but they seem to have been ‘filed’ where I can’t find them!

Once the card and the paper layers were stuck down, I decided to add some simple die-cut sentiments in black – so they can stand out against this patterned paper.

Both the die-cut sentiments are from Lawn Fawn. The ‘Big Hugs’ in the middle of the card is white heat embossed onto black card, layered several times before being stuck down so you can see the ‘hugs’ when the card is closed, but ‘Big Hugs’ when the card is open.

Thinking about you’ is also Lawn Fawn – but it is very fine, and I found it a little too fiddly to layer it up, so stuck down with one layer only after die cutting.

I hope you can come and join us – and educate me into the various ways we can introduce more than one fold in our creations. xx
