Here's my first design using Celebration Bouquet
For this one I simply embossed the image with white powder onto Kraft Card and sponged with Distress inks Blueprint Sketch, Peeled Paint, Barn Door and Fossilized Amber.
I then layered onto white & Kraft card before attaching to an A5 Kraft card blank. Very simple but clean and delicate. I just love all the fine detail in this stamp.
Next, we have Happy Flowers Day
This is one of my favourites and for this one I began by flicking some brown ink onto an
8 x 8 ivory card blank. Next I die cut some hexagons and then stamped parts of the magnolia, butterfly and script using a black inkpad. I coloured with pencils and attached 2 strips of burlap onto the card blank before attaching the hexagons.
I just loved September's stamps and once I got going I just couldn't stop! My next sample incorporates the great Artist Trading Heart and Geometric Trading Hearts.
This again is a simple design. I stamped both hearts onto card which I had smooched (wipe the card through watered ink on your craft mat) Distress inks onto using a black inkpad. I then cut them both out and stamped the sentiment and image onto the plain one.
I stamped Square Bubbles onto a 6 x 6 white card blank using a grey inkpad and sponged Distress ink Wilted Violet around the edges.
Finally we have the Snakehead Fritillary from Happy Flowers Day
For this card I stamped onto a white die cut oval (a smaller one for the sentiment) using a purple inkpad and then stamped again without re inking the stamp (secondary stamping) which gives you an interesting shadowy effect. I coloured the flowers in the foreground using pencils and mounted onto a grey A5 card blank.
That's all for this time but I'll have lots more to show you later in the month including the samples which didn't make it onto the show.
