I am not sure if I am supposed to explain what I used on my project. But I will do so anyways .
The theme is use something black , anything ,but black must be on the card someplace.
So I used black card stock . I normaly only use black cardstock for halloween cards, so this was weird for me. But I think the end result is really pretty ! The papers I used are some from a digital scrap kit I got. I dont remeber where from. The vellum is from PaperMania . I used pink ribbon , and I punched the flowers with a giga punch I have and then put pink brads in the center.
The Image is from The Greeting Farm, It is a digital Anya image . And she is very very pretty ! I used Sakura Glaze and Stardust pens on her. I also used Whisper Strokes Markers for the bright vivid colours.
This is the card I am giveing my husband on Valentines Day.
I used digital paper that I printed off. I dont remeber where I got them from. I download a lot of kits for digital scrapbooking. The good thing about these types of papers, is you can resize them !!And print them again and again and again LOL
I also used pink peach ribbon ,Sakura Glaze pens, and red glitter.
I used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder on the bottom half of the card .
And the stamp is a Pink Poison "Anya" Stamp. She is so pretty .I coloured her in with Whisper Strokes markers. I did not make them water colour. I wanted her outfit to be bright . I did change it afterwards to fit my card. I cut away the halo.
And my tag , well I dont have many stamps with words on them . So I found a font I liked and printed off my saying. Thanks for Looking.
This is a Just For You card I made for a friend of mine.
This Fairy is 3-d, it is hard to tell from the picture,unless you look at her up close. She is not a stamp. It's an image from a fairy artist named Jasmine Becket-Griffith. She does do some 3-d decoupage . But this image I printed off 4 times and cut out what I wanted to make the 3-d effect.
I used Sakura Glaze and Stardust pens &Lots of Red Glitter :)
The tag is from some left over grey and black paper I printed off for another project.
I also used grey coloured pencils to pop the limbs out from the background.
My daughter Emma loves to make cards with me. I have a huge box of scraps , that she digs thru til she finds something she likes. So when I seen this challenge, "Get Someone Else To Make it " over at http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/ I knew she would be happy !!
So here is her card ! She stamped the Magnolia stamp herself, and she cut it out and coloured it in herself. She picked the paper from my scrapbox, and she picked red cardstock.
I used glitter, Sakura Stardust and Glaze pens and Halloween pictures I have , and made them into 3-d decoupage. I also used 2 Molly Harrison decoupage pictures for the witch cards. I didnt make them 3-d , I kept them as a flat picture.
This set of cards I made with a template I found online. I really like it....the apron of the dress lifts up, to reveal your message :)
I used brads, ribbon, buttons , and some star flower sticky gems.
I dont remeber where I found the papers from.....but they were from an online blog or site to download for scrapbooking.....so I took a piece of cardstock that had a pretty print on one side.....and then printed the paper on the other side.....so when it is all cut out and fixed....you have the 2 patterns . But now they have papers that are double sided ...which are great for this project !!! The baby doll dress is mounted onto a piece of cardstock ..you can not open this card up....hence the apron effect :)
This is a selection of the Christmas Cards I made this year.
I used glitter, brads,bells, ribbon, and eyelets . The papers I believe came from a Papermania pack. The cardstock came from the Papermill shop.
Some of the cards I made into shakers ..The snowmen cards. The hearts was the shaker piece.
Some of them have a Magnolia Christ Santa stamp on them. I used Sakura Glaze and Stardust pens on them .
On some of the cards I used Cuttlebug embossing folders, and then used glitter to highlight some of the snowflakes. Some of the cards I made had vintage pictures that I have in a collection for old postcards. Some of them were 3-d decoupage.
I also made some cards with an Origami Christmas Tree.
This is a new card I made ...I was trying some new stuff out. I got some new stamps from Magnolia ....love her stamps !! And I also was trying out sewing on card with my sewing machine.....LOVE IT !!! I liked doing that and it gave my sewing machine some useage lol , but I feel it gave the card a country craft feel.
This is a set of ababy cards I made. They all turned out super nice !!I used some fairy pictures I have and pastel card stock. glitter and more glitter , I also used Sakura stardust pens to help with popping out some of the colours . Also used Xcut border punch on one of them and then a random punch I got at the pound store.
Let me know what you think and thanks for looking :)
I made this card useing papers from Lauren Ashley , and a pretty vellum that has a rose printed on it. I coloured the rose in on the back of the vellum so it would show thru to the front. The stamp is from Magnolia . I used Whispers Strokes markers as watercolour on her.And some irredscent glitter.
I enjoyed making this card. I like the textures and colours of the papers. They are from K and Company . The Stamp is from Magnolia , and I used Whispers Strokes Markers , as water colours on them. And then some simple baby blue ribbon .Up close you can see some of the colours ran together :( ..I am still working on this not happening. Practise makes perfect :)
