New Home…..

is the latest challenge on Scrapbook Sisters blog.

For this card I decided to use my Distress inks pads for water colouring and layering with nestabilities.

cards2 069The pretty bird house images are from a set free with a magazine. I have stamped onto watercolour paper and layered the main bird house.

cards2 070The ‘Sold’ sign  and fence are hand drawn and layered on the top.

Anything goes…

is the latest card challenge on the Scrapbook Sisters Blog so I thought I would combine it with another of my latest Digi samples.

cards2 066This is the flowers with the oval. For this one I have used a resist technique using a white crayon for the petals on the flowers and used Tattered Rose Distress pad to colour the card.

cards2 069I have cut around some of the petals to lift them.

cards2 068Added some gold sequins with Glossy accents.

cards2 070Added the Happy Birthday sentiment to the oval and some punched butterflies.

The next sample is the same image but I have cut out the oval to create an aperture for the photo of my not so little now baby. Can’t believe that in a couple of months he will be 19!

cards2 057With this one the flowers were coloured with Copics.

cards2 059I am thinking a mini book or some scrapbook    pages with these digis.

Thanks for stopping by

New Digi Stamps

Have managed a few minutes tonight to post a couple of samples of my new digi stamps launched at my class last Friday at Scrapbook Sisters.

The first sample is using the heart with swirls. Perfect for Valentines day.

cards2 041

For this one I have left the swirl detail completely plain and added the detail & texture in the heart

cards2 042I cut out the heart, coloured some seam binding with Tim Holtz Distress Stains( I do suggest that you wear a pair of those fine hospital type gloves if you don’t like getting messy fingers!)  Scrunch the binding and stick down onto a piece of backing card and stick the aperture heart over the top so the binding or ribbon pokes through. Simple, quick but effective.

This image would also work for Wedding, anniversary cards. A Gold heart for Golden wedding , Red for Ruby wedding etc etc.

With this second image (circle with swirls and leaves)I have cut out a flower in the same paper as the backing paper.

cards2 039

cards2 040Added some black ribbon to the centre of the flower as before. Then added a little sprinkling of Glamour dust.

All of these new images are all about what you can put in the main shape, whether it be a sentiment, stamped image, flowers, ribbons, cutting out the shape to make an aperture, or putting in a photograph. They will also work well with your Scrapbook pages or mini books.

I hope you like them. More to come over the next days.

Thanks for stopping by.
