Hi there

Been a few days, but work has just been so consuming at the moment, but alas I am now on holidays and well getting excited as I am heading away with friends for a craft retreat..

I have lots to do, mainly the craft room packing, cleaning up and I still have 2 cards to create before leaving, so I had better get cracking..

First things first, time to share a card I created the other day using MFT and Mama Elephant products, I love to combine companies to bring a super cute card together..

Friend-Joy-Taylor

I have had Tiny Heroes from Mama Elephant for awhile and in my attempt to start using older product, this was one I needed to use, so I took out one of the cute little girls and coloured her up in hero colours, die cut her out and set her aside, I then masked off a half circle area on a piece of white card stock and added layers of distress ink, mustard seed and wild honey to give a sunset, stamping over the top using the city scape stamp from MFT, You’re Super, stamping this in black to make it stand out. I then went about stamping out sentiments on a die cut word bubble and also onto a strip of black card stock, embossing in white embossing powder. Then all it needed was to be added altogether onto the card front and adding it to a Kraft card base..

This was a truly fun card to create, love creating little scenes like this..

Well time to go turn the roast meat (for all my US friend, we are having a bake) then it is time to clean the dishes up and this afternoon, get going in that craft room..

Have a wonderful day!

Hello

Happy Sunday!

Beautiful cool day here today and almost time for me to get ready to head to work again..

First things first, I am popping in today to share a card I created using Richard Garay’s new retail line, this retail line is called Make Amazing, to view the latest catalogue just go HERE.

Amazing-You

 

 

This was a really simple card for me, I chose use the stamp set Amazing Blooms, that you can view in the link provided above, I stamped out the large bloom and leaves in one corner of the card and embossed with white embossing powder, I then applied Captivating Coral and Cotton Candy inks over the top to create a soft background to the embossing and to bring the embossing to life..

I finished off by die cutting Pierced Rectangle and stamped a sentiment out from the Brave You stamp set with some soft grey ink and lastly adding a scattering of clear sequins.

Super simple and fun technique..

Well I am off to grab a quick bite to eat and head out to work, I hope you all enjoy the rest of what is left of your weekend..

Hugs
