A second Card using the Brand new Fushsia Stamps from Heartfelt Stamps

Good Afternoon Crafters, I stamped three of the gorgeous Fushsia stamps yesterday and although I managed to colour them I only managed to get one card created and this one is of a Fushsia Spray. The Papers are from the same Design Set and I used a piece of left over paper to make the strip across the bottom.
The image was cut out with a Tonic Die and I used a larger one for the mount out of red card. As you can see I have used a 8"x 8" white card with a first mount out of red card and I stuck the mounted image in the middle towards the top.
To finish of I created a red triple organza bow which was placed in the top left hand corner and 3 pearls down the right hand side to finish of.

Heartfelts brand new Fushsia Stamp and Die Card

Good Afternoon Fellow Crafters, well Ive been playing with the brand new Heartfelt stamps and dies. I printed all three sizes of cascading fushsia's and then cut them out with the corresponding dies, I then coloured them with my Dovecraft Inkpads though I probably would use different reds to change the colour choice.
I then shaped them with my tools and made the flowers up with strong paper glue. After this was done I used another of the heartfelt stamps the leaves and cut them out also with the corresponding die, afterwards I also used the embossing tools to shape them.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first mount out of red card the papers are also from the same Fushsia paper pad, and cut out a oval with the large oval Nestabilitie die and cut the fancy lattice oval to place over the oval cut out.
The shaped leaves where then placed around the oval diecut and popped the fushsia's along the leave line.
To finish of I have created a large  white bow and stuck it at the bottom and down the right side I have stuck white pearls and here and there on the lattice oval with the small red pearls. And the final flourish is the sentiment which was stuck at the bottom on the bow tails.

This weeks theme over on Sundays with Santa is all about travel, and I thought this was I hope just right for it, its one of the Thomas Kincade images from Joanna Sheen, she has created several CDs with this artists images on, and as this has horses and a car on it.
I printed the image onto photo paper and then used one of the background papers that came with this image to create the first mount, I have also used silver card just to give it extra height.

A Xmas Birthday Card for Sundays with Santa

Good Morning Crafters, this week over on Sundays with Santa on Facebook its theme is "Xmas Birthdays" well I have three members of my family whos birthdays that fall on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day and if my dad had still be alive his was on Christmas Day, I know my brother used to hate having a birthday at the holiday time as often he had one large present and lots of small ones. Never mind unfortunately there is not a lot one can do about when ones born.
I used one piece of white card for the first layer and this was run through the embossing machine with a snowflake embossing folder, then the Sue Wilson Joy die we used and on the second layer I used double sided sticky paper and added some large glitter and then used mounting foam to lay the first layer on top.
The holly diecuts are another of Sue Wilsons dies and this was coloured with a green inkpad and the berries were done with a copic pen.

Another Card for Sundays with Santa - Baubles

Good Morning Crafters, heres my card for this weeks theme over on Sundays with Santa, and this is one of the Sue Wilsons Stamps to Die For and I have also used her embossing folders and dies, I love them they really are gorgeous.
I stamped the bauble image onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, I realise now I should have stamped and embossed it with embossing powder and then cut it out with one of the bauble dies and then used a overlay one out of gold card.
The white card  has been embossed with a snowflake lattice and cut out the middle with one of the Scandinavian dies and mounted it onto cold card, I then used some foam pads to higher the embossed card though its not come up as much as I expected.
I then placed my bauble in the middle and stamped and cut out the ribbon at the top.

"Humour" Card for Sundays with Santa on Facebook

The theme for this weeks Challenge over on Sundays with Santa is "Humour" and I felt this La Pasche was just right for it, its a pre-coloured diecut sheet with a backing paper. The large card blank had the oval all ready cut out, and its a 3 section card I placed a piece of acetate between the first two pages and then stuck them together.
I placed the backing paper on the full sheet and decoupaged the image up on the acetate with silicone glue. I used one of the back pieces as a corner and added the sentiment in the right hand corner. I will send it to my brother in law in New Zealand at Christmas as he loves this sort of thing.
