Wishing You a Piece of Paradise

And here is the same stamp from Stampendous but with a much different feel about it.

A little bit of watercolouring with paper piecing once again. This time I used a Liz Zed marbled paper both for the sand and for the layering.

Secret Sister Card

I received this secret sister card on Friday. The theme for Lorraine's Secret Sister for March was: "Up in the Air". I reckon the lady who made this has that down pat!. Beautiful, careful Dimensional Magic work on all the balloons. Must have taken an age! I love that and the bright cheeriness of the card.

Beach Happy

Hi there,

The sun is out!!!! Finally!!!!! And to celebrate what better than a beachy card!

This one is a beautiful Stampendous stamp which I have watercoloured in parts. The other parts have been paper pieced with patterned paper for the umbrella and glitter paper for the sand.

Flower Appeal

I acquired the Hero Arts DVD, just to see what was on it. They did have a lovely tutorial to make this card. It doesn't do anything I do not know already how to do, but I loved the composition, so just had to make one myself. I cannot remember if they used green on theirs or not.

I did not own all theirs stamps, so have substituted ...mainly for the background piece. Chalk and die inks have both been used here with lots of 2nd and 3rd generation stamping.

Another with the Arc

A fair bit of dimension to this one. Again, I chose colours not normally seen together with my work. I was trying to follow the colours showing in the Credit Card swiped feature piece. I LOVE the embossing folder!

The wording is by Hero Arts

Arc de Triumph

No clue to the manufacturer of this stamp. The card was made with a piece of inked paper belonging to Grace and I purposely used colours I do not normally use. Much angst followed after I decided to do that, and I don't like it one little bit!

Hero Arts stamps rock!

CAS and Cased

Cased from the Hero Arts 2011 catalogue....I have a different shadow stamp and different colours.

I found it very, very hard to leave this as is. To me, it was not finished. (You may have noticed, i enjoy a layer or two!)

Girl with Butterfly

I cannot find the stamp...UGH! I think it a Sweet Pea one, but don't shoot me if it isn't!

Coloured with Prisma pencil and smoothed out with Gamsol.

I think this makes a great teenage girl card. I don't make many for that age group at all. Do you?

Robot Future

Cute little robot set from Hero Arts! Coloured with Tomboy Pens. The wording is also Hero Arts. After I stamped the wording, I actually found the "robot-y" wording I thought I owned! Sigh.....
