B is for Blooms

The Alphabet Challenge has started another challenge. Having reached the letter ‘B’, Debbie has chosen the theme of ‘BLOOMS’. Here is my card:

I chose another stamp set from Clearly Besotted, it must be an older one as it also has the matching die – something they don’t do any more. I love the vase full of the Spring daffodils and tulips.

Once stamped, coloured with Copics, and die cut, I added some white gel pen for some detail.

The ‘hello’ sentiment was die cut several times and layered for dimension.

The background strip was an off-cut from a previously used piece of patterned paper.

I look forward to seeing lots of colourful blooms on our gallery. xx

Splattered Coneflower

Hello. I have a card to share today using a die set I’ve been wanting to use for ages, and some gold splattering.

I die cut a honeycomb layer from a Honey Bee Stamps layering die set, only using two of the layers. Once adhered to the white card base, I splattered with Liquitex acrylic ink – the metallic set.

The Coneflower was die cut from varying tones of blue card with some Distress Inks also blended onto each layer to create a variety of blue within each petal. The same with the green leaves – die cut from green card stock, then green Distress Ink blended onto them.

Before gluing them together, I also splattered them with the same gold acrylic ink.

The centre of the coneflower is die cut from a piece of water-colour card stock onto which I had painted the gold acrylic ink – roughly to create some dimension.

The sentiment is a light blue and dark blue layer, slightly off-set.

I added some glass cabochons for further interest.

I shall be entering this into the following challenges:

Cardz 4 Galz – Make It Sparkle

Hello once again. Cardz 4 Galz has started a new challenge, and Dawn has chosen the theme of ‘Make It Sparkle’. Here is my glittery card:

I used a few sparkly glittery papers to create this card. The background leaves has glitter on it, and so does the main flower image – probably best seen in my second photo.

The sentiment is a die from Simon Says Stamp, and die cut several time, including the top layer out of a matching paper, and stacked and glued as you see.

The whole card has quite a lot of glitter on the images – so very sparkly.

I hope you can come and join us – I am looking forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
