Card for a beautiful day .


Hello once again and welcome to my blog .  I have been "researching " on Pinterest and viewing U-Tube videos and this card is my take of one video from   Connie Stewart,      

    Firstly I layered some DS Paper onto white card base leaving small border. Then  using the label punch set  edge to edge at bottom right, I punched it out and put it to one side . I punched out another label from the white scrap .Closing the card I put some adhesive to the label and carefully placed it  in the aperture so that when I opened the card the label was placed in the right spot on the inside of card . Now , I could have stamped the sentiment on the label first but as I was going to add the flower to front of card I wanted to be sure that the words were not obscured.   

I stamped the 3 petals in green ink to create leaves  onto the white scrap using aqua pen to fill in colour  then punched it out .I stamped the petals again twice  in Black ink onto the red card stock scrap. After punching those out I stamped one of the  petals set with its black centre . I adhered both together with a foam dot  and the completed flower onto the lower petal of the green "leaves" 


SU punches , SU Stamp set and card stock .

Lastly a small bow from Baker's Twine  from my stash was added using a sticky dot .

         This is the first time that I have tried to use pictures of items used but this effort is so untidy  I realize that I need practice .


Art, in itself, is an attempt to bring order out of chaos.

Steady on!

 Hi there , welcome to my blog and thank you for calling in . I do hope that you enjoy the card  that I  share today . May you stay a while and browse  through to other posts , and if you choose to leave a comment I will  appreciate that . Of course I will return the visit .

I don't believe that I have posted this card I created quite a while ago  so here goes .Certainly I apologize if I have done so .

The image was a freebie with a craft magazine and is coloured with copics .

Card base  is Crumb Cake.  I  layered  with another smaller piece after  this layer had a large circle die cut placed  on lower right corner and I sponged round the edges with Brocade Blue ink and then continued to ink all edges of layer .I then removed the die cut circle and stamped the image and sentiment within the shaded area . I then stamped second sentiment in top left corner . Just added some enameled dots for embellishment. 

Thought this might suit for a Father's day card as well as a birthday card for a dog lover .

Hope you like this fun male card .

                    Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .
