Hydrangea Garden

 For this card I started with the stenciled background, I have used the Lavinia stencil Flourish and Distress ink with Evergreen bough and twisted citron. I stamped the Hydrangea flower onto designer paper and cut it out and attached it to the card with foam tape. For the leaves I stenciled with the ink and added a darker layer of ink on the edges. I coloured the butterfly with copic alcohol pens. I added the sentiment from the stampendous thoughtful wishes, sentiment set.

Have a great day.

Turtle Diamond dot

 I am usually card maker, but lately I have lost my creative mojo. I wanted a painting for the guest room, so I thought I would give diamond dot image a go. It was so much fun, and it turned out great. I even found a frame for it that matched the guest room furniture.

Thinking of you Poppies

Today in Australia it is Anzac Day, the day we remember those who lost their lives in war.

 I made this card with a watercolour background using a clear block and distress oxide inks. I then stamped the outline of the poppies in black ink. Then filled the flowers with distress ink. I die cut the sentiment 4 times, gluing them together for a stacked sentiment. I added some nuvo drops to finish the card.

Thanks for looking today.......

Baby Shower

Today I am sharing the card that I made for my daughter's baby shower, and yes, we are expecting a little pink bundle later in the year.
I used this Mo Manning rubber stamp, that I have had for some time, it is a favourite of mine for making baby cards.

Inside I used dies from Karen Burniston, the parcel pop-up and baby charms. As you open the card the charms rise up out of the box as you open it.
