In Oz

I've had a productive weekend and here's another card I've done. This time it's a digi image from Sherri Baldy's Besties of Oz collection. I love these images and this is the first card I have had chance to make using them. The image has been coloured using Tria pens. It has then been cut out using spellbinder's dies.

The card base is cut out using a Martha Stewart punch around the page set. Then I have added some dried grass heads because I felt it seemed a little autumnal in colour and they suited the image. A couple of butterfly charms and the little dog charm I thought looked just like Toto. And lastly the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp. For the first colouring I've done in a while I felt quite pleased.

By The Seaside

It looks like I've chased away the sun by making this seaside themed card. It's been heavy rainy downpours for the last couple of days. but hopefully the sun will come back again soon.

I have made this card using Clarity Stamps, one of my favourite brands. They have been coloured using Tim Holtz distress markers. I have added some real tiny shells for good measure. The aperture has been cut using a Go Create large die.

Butterfly Baptism

This is a very popular style of card I make I get lots of order's  for this decorative book on an easel card base. This one was ordered by a friend of mine for her granddaughters Baptism. She love's butterflies so I thought I would decorate this card with them for a baptism card but a bit different from normal types of decoration.

The book shape is a Go Kreate large die,the heart boarder is a Martha Stewart punch and the white card layer has been embossed with a Crafters Companion embosselicious folder.The Butterflies are Cheery Lynn dies cut out of glitter card, then I've just added flowers and words. I gave it to her this morning and she loved it.

Summer Sea

I would like to share this piece of work with you all. This is the first piece of this design that I have done using the Inkylicious stamps and duster brushes. I have used Tim Holtz distress inks. This to me looks like an English beach early on a summers morning. I thought is quite apt for the beautiful weather we are having at the minute, long may it last for me. Oh I do Like to be Beside the Seaside!
