Dies Series #9

 Hi and welcome to my blog. I am showing another card in my die series today. I chose to make a slimline card since the background die was a little longer than a regular A2 card.




Dies:  Kaleidoscope (background) - Spellbinders
           Flower Dies and Stamps Set - Sizzix
           Celebrate - Sizzix

Paper:  Beautiful - Paper Studio
Spectrum Noir Tri Blends
Yellow Glitter Glue
Sticker Border

I used multi colored paper for my background. I cut the Kaleidoscope die from black card stock. The flowers are stamps and have a die to cut them out. There was a fun surprise because the die cuts some of the petals and leaves so that they pop up! I had no idea that the die did that!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

I had fun making this slimline card using an actual business envelope that came in the mail. The inside of these type of envelopes have a gray or blue pattern inside. I sponged Distress inks over the pattern starting with purple and adding lighter blues as I went down the paper. The window is a see - through film that overlaps onto the paper. When sponging it resists the ink and you end up with  frame around the window!

Gelli Print Card

 Hi and welcome to my blog! I always love using my gelli prints on my cards. They make neat backgrounds. I saw a neat gelli plate technique and tried it for this card. 


Stamp:  Bird Crazy - Tim Holtz
Saying - Our Daily Bread Designs
Stencil:  Daisies - Delta Creative
Crayons 
Acrylic Paint

First I placed a flower stencil over my card stock and colored in the areas using crayons. Next I brayered blue acrylic paint onto my gelli plate, pressed the crayon colored card stock onto the gelli plate and pulled it off. I let the paint dry - doesn't take long - and then I used the side of a metal palette knife to scrape off the paint that was over the crayon colors. The crayon acts like a resist and the paint scrapes off easily.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our Generous Sponsors for their Continued Support 

I used this fun new stamp for the outdoor fun option for this challenge. This little mousey is having a fun ride!
