Birthday Hugs.....

Hi everyone.

Popping in today to share with you 1 of 3 cards made from the one technique and so far this one is my favourite.  

To create my card I stamped out 10 of the gerbera daisy's from Penny Blacks Blooming Garden and then Copic coloured them.  Each image was then fussy cut and arranged over a backing page and was attached with semi permanent tape, die cut.   I then  used foam tape to attach the pieces to my card, so that they appear to be  floating on the card.

 I took inspiration for this card from a technique shown on You Tube  by Jennifer McGuire and the here is the link to her You Tube Video - Floating Die Cut Frame.  

It was lots of fun and took a while to arrange the pieces onto the backing card so that they looked nice, but well worth the effort.

supplies used:
Penny Black stamp - Blooming Garden
Avery Elle Die and Stamp - Simply Said Hugs
Copic Markers

Trick or Treat....

Hi everyone, dropping in today to share my card with you, that I created last month for Bizzy Becs online store.

My inspiration for this image stems from last  month having Halloween at the end of it.  I am not generally one to celebrate anything Halloween but occasionally I like to make a card showcasing something along that theme.    I hope you like her. 

 I just love the quirkiness of the new Oddball Characters from Stamping Bella.

She has been coloured with two different types of media this time.  For the skin I have used Prisma coloured pencils and the rest of the image was coloured with Copic Markers.

I also used my alphabet punch board from We R Memory Makers to create the senitment.  I then placed a strip of purple foil card underneath to make it pop.

Supplies used:

Stampingbella - Oddball Shopper
Avery Elle Die - Wonky Stitches
Alphabet Punch Board - wermemorymakers
