Elegant springtime florals..

Well happy Friday everyone 😊 the weekend awaits and in my little part of the world the sun is shining 🌞🌞 although knowing the fickle British weather it could snow at any time πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
For my last card of the week I'm sharing an elegant card using the beautiful springtime floral papers and my new favoucolouring in tool Stampin' Blends.
The paper comes as a white background with metallic patterns printed on. The fab thing about that is you can colour it in many ways including my new fav!!!
Have a good weekend and please join us next week foe more inspiration
Have fun
Cary xx

Most of us have a particular type of card we find hardest masculine, clean and simple, lots of layers..the list goes on! For me one of the hardest is a card for a Teenager! Well with the help of the sale-a-bration stamp set Epic day and the designer series paper Bubbles and Fizz I think I've made a card that pretty much any teen would be happy to receive 😊

A quick post of a quick and easy card today .the gems are Stampin' Up! Rhinestones that I've coloured using the fab new alcohol markers from Stampin' Up! Called Stampin Blends. They come in 14 fabulous colours in both a light and a dark shade making colouring effortless .but they are also great for other things such as colouring gems !

Thinking of you...

Help! The card I'm sharing today is one that I think needs work on. In my minds eye it worked fine but in reality....well I'm not so sure!. Does that ever happen to you? Please share constructive criticism 😊

This week is all about using sketches and as we are coming to the end of sale-a-bration I thought I'd make good use of them too 😊
Today's card is bright and fun and oh so easy and quick to make just what I need on a dull and dreary Monday.

Grey - Gray

My last card this week is made in Basic Gray and Very Vanilla cardstock.
I used the lovely stamp set called You're Inspiring as I love the daffodils.

I stamped the daffodil image and the little splodges in Versamark then poured
 Silver embossing powder over.

Once heat set, I coloured in the flowers using the Watercolour Pencils. I've had so much fun with them and they're only £14.50 for 13 gorgeous colours. 
A MUST buy as far as I'm concerned.

I find cutting around images very therapeutic, so this I did.
I added a few strips of the lovely Daffodil Delight Ribbon.

A couple of messages from the same stamp set which were also heat embossed. 
The front phrase I used the NEW Tailored Tag punch but cut each of the 2 top layers down.
Please pop by next week to see how Cary will inspire you. I'm sure she has something lovely
up her sleeve for you.

Colours Grey

Colour Grey - Day 4

My grandchildren, Bella and Jayden gave me the inspiration for the card today.
It was my son's birthday last week and both of them made a card using the 
Magical Day stamp set.
So, here is my version.

Using Whisper White as the card base and a Basic Gray mat inside, I made the scene below.
I've only used small amounts of grey on this card.
I used a piece of the gorgeous papers which coordinate with the stamp set called
Myths and Magic Speciality DSP. Simple designs on one side and glossy images 
like the ones below on the other. 
Yes, The Dragon is shiny! He's gorgeous, I love him!

I TORE PAPER!!!!! I NEVER do things like that usually. In fact I'm sure that Cary will laugh when she sees it! It just had to be done!
I wanted banners for the background so used the die from the Home Sweet Home Thinlits.

I gently watercoloured over the background with the Bermuda Bay pencil.

The messages were both stamped in Basic Gray and are from the Magical Day stamp set.
