A few more cards have been received by the people I made them for, so I can post them here. Maybe I’m odd, but if I make a card for someone I prefer them to actually have it before they see it on a website.
The LO for this one came from a card Sarita in California showed me. She is always sending me lovely crafty bits, including a fantastic set of stamped images last week, so I thought I’d make her a thank you card using this LO. I changed it to landscape format because the Tilda image is quite big. The backing paper is a piece of vellum attached with pink brads. The striped paper is DCWV & the purple paper is my second attempt at heat embossing! I used Pearl Plum embossing powder from Fun Stamps. I coloured Tilda with Whispers pens & then used Anita’s 3D glaze. The thank you tile was a freebie from an edition of Papercraft Inspirations a few months ago & I think the ribbon was from Readicut. The little butterfly is from K & Co & was something else from Sarita, as was the swirly stamp!

This card is for Jen. Sarita sent me the gorgeous image & when I saw I immediately thought of this lovely Joanna Sheen paper. I coloured the image with Whispers pens – yes, I love them! One of these days I’m going to try water-colouring with them. I used a gold pen for the necklace & bracelet & a tiny piece of red glitter glue on the collar. As I was making the card I did think I would be adding flowers to it, but once it was assembled I could see that the image & paper were too detailed & flowers would spoil it, so I just added little pieces of ribbon to finish it. Sarita sent me two of these images, so I’m looking forward to trying different colours on the other one. Hope you like these cards, thank you for looking. Love & light.

  • You can’t imagine the thrill I get when I come home from a long day at work and open my mailbox to find an envelope postmarked from England!!!I dumped my backpack on the floor, along with all the other worthless pieces of mail and opened the “envelope”. Enclosed was this beautiful card. The lovely green background reminds me of art deco.The added highlights to the picture were just right.Thank you again for the putting a smile on my face!Hugs,Jen
