Brighter days

Hello and welcome

Today's card was cased from one I saw on Pinterest, and as I recently purchased this set, I was keen to use it.
I used my Misti and stamped with Gina K Amalgam ink. 
I have used 3 colours of Promarkers
Pastel Blue  C729
Pastel Yellow O949
Pastel Beige Y257
I also added 3 little blue diamantes to finish. 
Layered onto a blue base card, and the hand cut banner is layered on top. I used the pastel yellow to edge the banner
Paperbabe - layers

Hello, and thanks for visiting today

This card is for my DIL's birthday, which is tomorrow. I have used some pretty designer paper (sorry, I do not know the maker) choosing the bird box image for the front of the card.
I chose some of the text page for the centre 2 sections and the outer two are plain, but I have attached flowers and a butterfly. I used a die for the Happy Birthday, and also attached another butterfly on the front.
As I can enter the Unstampabelles challenge, I will answer the question - who am I - and say that I am a cardmaker who loves to try different styles

ScorPal - more than one score

Bye for now

Hello and thanks for visiting
Today's card was cased from one I saw recently, so this is my version.
I used a piece of heavy watercolour card and painted my 3 strips of colour in an ombre style.
I stamped and clear embossed my flower image, and stamped the sentiment too.
I diluted some Lumiere Metallic Gold (I had forgotten I had these) and did some flicking with an old paint brush. The blob of gold that was left over was diluted with mica powder mixed with water, and lightly brushed over the flowers. Then attached to a black card base.

Mod Squad - use mica powders

Happy crafting - I will be back soon!

Luggage tag

 Hello and welcome to my blog.

I bought this set of stamps from someone in a FB group for selling used craft items.
It is Stampers Anonymous 'Time Traveler', and I also bought the Dylusions 'Puddy Cat' set. (See my previous post)
The seller included some DOX backgrounds in the package, so I have trimmed one of them to make the base of my tag. I stamped the luggage with GinaK amalgam ink and clear embossed it. I used the Frayed Burlap DOX to paint with and coloured the handles with a metallic gold Sharpie.
I stamped the word onto a scrap, distressed it with some 'mop-up' ink and cut it into a banner shape. Finished off by punching a hole and tying some string through
