It's a Beautiful Day!

Good Morning,

Been having a play with my Altenew stamps I brought a while ago.
I'm definitely going to use them again.

Altenew beautiful day flowers & leaves were stamped with a black outline then 3 coloured layers added for flowers and 2 for leaves. All were cut out leaving a small white border and arranged onto card using foam pads to give dimension. The sentiment, from the same stamp set was then stamped directly onto the card in black. I was pleased with the outcome some decided to make another one.

This time I stamped the images with versa mark and heat embossed with a fine white powder. i then added the layers in yellows and pink memento inks. Sentiment is from the vintage florals set & stamped in black. A glittered butterfly was added for a bit of sparkle. 
Don't know which colour combo I like best.

Have a nice day!

It's a Boy

Good Evening and a Happy New Year,

I've made a bad start to the year and have missed the start of the new challenge over at 
Moving Along With The Times
I must say a big sorry to all my lovely teamies

The challenge this week is 'Something in the Air' chosen by the lovely Zoe

My card is a simple one, the image is pre coloured  and the sentiment is computer generated which I edited in serif. I decided to make a matching tag and put the sentiment in the balloon.

Christmas Wreath

 Hello everyone,

It's not like me to post at a weekend but I missed the start of the new challenge that started Thursday at 
Moving Along With The Times

With everyone's favourite theme 
Anything Christmas

I stamped flowers (Dreamees) onto vellum with versa mark and heat embossed in white. I the coloured on the back before cutting out to prevent them from curling up. 2 layers were glued together, shaped and glamour dust was added to the centers. 
The leaves (Chloe stamps) were stamped onto acetate with versa mark and heat embossed in silver then cut out.
The leaves were arranged onto the card in a wreath shape and the computer generated sentiment was added . The flowers and bow were then added and there you have it!
