Parasols and Flowers

I love trying different techniques, so I thought why not combine something I haven't done for ages - tapestry stamping - with something I have only tried once before - triple time stamping?  It creates a wonderful pallet of colour with some added dimension, yet doesn't detract from the main image. 
For this card I have used:
  • Papermania cardstock
  • KennyK image "Paige Parasol"
  • Gold Sharpie
  • Distress Inks - Frayed Burlap, Dried Marigold, Forest Moss, Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain
  • Promarkers - Oatmeal, Soft Peach, Dusky Pink, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow, Mustard, Raw Sienna, Satin, Pastel Beige, Peach, Mango, Bright Orange, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg, Turquoise, Cobalt Blue, True Blue, Indigo Blue, Sandstone, Caramel, Burnt Sienna, Cocoa, Henna, Walnut, Ruby, Crimson

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Baby Pop-Up Box Cards

What to do when your friend is having a baby soon and you don't know the sex? Make two cards of course! 
I wanted to make another pop-up box card as I haven't made one for ages, so I bought some new X-Cut dies to make the process of creating two cards a bit easier. 

I've used the following materials to make these cards:
  • Papermania plain card
  • Recollections patterned papers
  • X-Cut baby dies
  • Promarkers






I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:
  1. Creative Fingers - Challenge #109
  2. Paper Creator's Crafts - #47 Anything Goes
  3. Crafty Catz - #324 Dies & Punches

Hello again!

It was a little while between my last couple of posts, but this time it's been even longer!
A lot has happened since February 2015 - my baby girl is almost two and my little boy is five; in March 2015 we made a big move from England to Canada. My craft stash spent months on a boat and is now piled in boxes under the stairs. So for the past year and a bit I haven't done a lot of cardmaking. I have ventured into the world of upcycling Mason jars and glass bottles, plus I made a few little canvas pictures for my husband's work colleagues at Christmas.   
I am gradually getting back into making cards and have joined a Facebook challenge group as this is quicker and easier for me than blogging at the moment. 
I will try to blog some more as I do have some wonderful pop-up box cards to share.
