Make a Wish

Hi everybody, Fi here with today's post... a bit later than planned!

That sounds a bit familiar...doesn't it??

Today's card has been made using MFT - make a wish stamps but unfortunately are out of stock but will be back in soon.

First I white embossed one of the sentiments from the set and then I brushed some colour over the background and then spritzed with water to give it a bit of texture. I stamped the candles into watercolour ink and then stamped onto watercolour card and then once dry I cut them out.

I added some sticky fixers and the layered the candles onto the card.

I distressed the edges of the card and layered it onto some black card.

Pop back for some more inspiration from the team.

Layered Lily

I've been drooling over the Altenew layered stamps for months and so when the Layered Lilies landed on my doormat I was a teensy bit excited to ink them up.

Once I'd inked the 3 main layers, I then used a pencil to darken the centres and add some streaks to the centres and edges of each petal.  Finally I used a tiny paintbrush to dot some ink speckles into the centre and black ink to stamp the stamens.

I was so pleased with how they turned out that I got a bit carried away and couldn't seem to stop using them, but instead of boring you with 4 separate posts, I've decided to bore you with all 4 cards in a single post, so brace yourself for a quartet of lilies!

It's a Beautiful Day....Again!

Hi there,

Clare here again with my card for 

Again using the amazing Beautiful Day stamp set from Altenew. I don't think I have ever used a stamp set so much and that's because it's so versatile. I know stocks of this stamp set are arriving soon, so to be notified of when this arrives to be sure not to miss out you can leave your email address here. 

This time I've used the Altenew ink cubes in blues, reds and yellows along with the greens to stamp the colours. I usually start with the lightest colour and biggest stamp then build up the smallest stamp, darkest colour. I've stamped the flowers and leaves in versa fine black onyx over the top. I then cut them out and layered them overlapping onto a piece of white card cut to size to fit an A6 card. Before I fixed them down I sewed a zig zag edge with my sewing machine. 

I then stamped the greeting from the stamp set onto black cardstock using Hero Arts Unicorn ink and embossed with Wow! Embossing powder in Opaque bright white regular. I cut this out and then drew a line along the ourside edge with a fine line white gel pen (It's a Pilot one I got fromW.H. Smith and one of the best I've had).

Well I really hope you like this card. Maybe for my net card I'll progress onto another stamp set! hee hee.

Thanks for visiting!

Love, Clare x

You Are Magical

Hello Crafters,
So now the new issue of Making Cards Magazine is out I can share my makes from last months issue. I have been itching to share my Unicorn Cards, I am thrilled how they turned out in the end and hope you like them too. So here is the first one....
 I created the background of this card using some distress markers scribbles onto acetate with a touch of water. I then die cut the panel using the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dienamics Dies. I added some glitter washi tape across the middle along with some large pearls. The clouds were die cut using the Dienamics Puffy Clouds. The unicorns were stamped then die cut with the MFT Magical Unicorn Stamp & Die Set. I coloured each of the images with my copic pens and attached them all in place with foam pads. I used my Wink Of Stella Pen to add some glitter to the stars.
