Calendula Bloom

Today we have a card from Kim


Kim has used Jane's Clear Magic Calendula Bloom.

Kim has stamped in brown and embossed with clear powder, on the wonderful Woodware Mixed Media Card. Kim has then inked the background and the flowers with dye ink and a piece of cut 'n' dry
the greeting comes from the same stamp set. Kim has then stamped the flower again and dye cut the circle and a larger circle from brown card.

I love the way that Kim has got the watery background on the card, and the vellum strip that she has added to the card.

Why not pop over to see what Kim has to say about her card?

Bubble Wrap, but not the Plastic Type

I love the idea of adding a wrap around cards, a great way to keep things together when making invitations.
8
I have used Jane's Lilly Clear Magic Bubble Bloom one of her new releases.
1
first I stamped and embossed in white on the black Textura 12 x 12 Card
2
Then I stamped Lilly in black on sheets from the Lavender Mist 6 x 6 Perfect Prints Pad, I used black licorice dye ink from the Stephanie Barnard collection from ColorBox for this.
3
I then cut out the petals, trimming inside of the black lines.
4
The stem is rather tricky!
5
To decorate the bubbles I have used a mixture of Time Flies Card Candi, Stickles in Grape Crush and Silver and White Pearl Pen. These Pearl Pens are really easy to use and hold the shape really well.
7
the greeting is from the die cut messages and they are great for adding a quick greeting, especially if you like to make cards in advance and then add a greeting to make it perfect for a special person. I have layered it on a punched circle with the big yellow size circle.
11
Now for the wrap...
10
The card is a square cut from a folded piece of A4. I cut a strip 2.5 inches wide and then scored it on my Groovy board to make an A4 gate fold card, then I embossed some lines.
9

I used the Tag Top Punch with the Square Shoulders. I used Lettuce Embossing powder to edge the wrap.
6
I cut a 2 inch strip of patterned paper and punched it with the same Tag Top punch. then I threaded the dotty ribbon through both ends of the wrap.
12
The wrap makes for a very special card.

Being Unique

We have a great card from Crafty Debs, Debs has created it by making two 6 x 6 cards and trimming and attaching them together.
Debs
Crafty Debs has used the Clear Magic Dotty Flower stamp designed by Jane Gill. Debs has stamped on the 6 x 6 Perfect Prints pad Standstorm. The Silhouette Butterflies have been punched in the patterned paper and from green card and layered together. Debs has decorated the body of the butterflies with Citron Elements.
Debs1
The words inside come from  You Are some great word stamps from the Francoise Collection. Can you see the slit that Debs has made to hold the card closed? Very clever!
You will find more photographs over on Crafty Debs blog so pop over for more of how she has created the card.

Mixed Bunch

kim1

Kim has stamped and embossed the image and then used a water-colour technique with dye inks to colour the image.
Kim has then cut away the white card to highlight the image. Kim has then layered the image on to coloured card to compliment the colours that she has used. The greeting is on the same stamp set.
Kim has added a touch of sparkle to finish the card off.
A wonderful bright and uplifting card to add a touch of sunshine to a birthday. Kim as usual has an extra card on her blog.

Wire Roses

Today we have a very pretty card from Crafty Debs
Debs
Debs has made a very interesting round card with the Wire Roses Clear Magic Stamp from the Francoise Collection. Debs has used the Detail Gold embossing powder, the detail powder is a must if you a stamp with fine lines or a detailed stamp. The embossing acts as a resist so it pops through the colour.
Debs1
Debs has lightly sponged some colour over the whole card, and has then added some spots of water to move the colour. Debs has then coloured the roses and leaves with Koi Brush Pens so that they stand out from the background.
Debs2
The words included with the roses stamps. I love the way that Crafty Debs has made a flag for the words.
The dotty organza ribbon and the Mark Richards Rainbow Stones that Crafty Debs has added are a perfect finishing touch.
