Happy New Year

A very quick and easy card using my free stamps from my magazine Simply Cards and Papercrafts 212

I took a base A6 card in black then a piece of white card slightly smaller and stamped my glasses all over then added the little star in the free spaces I did this all in Yellow nice and bright.

I the took a scrap of black card and die cut a scalloped circle to mat my white sentiment onto I used a stitched die for this I placed this on my black scalloped mat just using double sided tape and then place foam pads under the black scalloped mat to give a raised effect.

Pop fizz clink card

I made this card using a stamp set which was free from my latest magazine find. Simply cards and papercraft 212. I followed one of the projects but changed it slightly to make it my own.

I stamped my glasses on a piece of white card stock and coloured with my tri blend pens. I placed this onto a piece of pink card I used foam pads to give a raised effect as I did my sentiment. I have then placed on to a black base card.

A card appropriate for Christmas eve enjoy and have a lovely day tomorrow.

Happy Crafting

Seahorse card

 This was one of my Christmas presents from my dear friend Freddie she lives in the Netherlands. She knows I love Seahorse.

I have taken a white piece of card and stamped my Seahorse three times and coloured then using my Tri Blend pens. I then die cut it using my stitch dies and then used the next size up die for my blue glitter card and them mounted it onto a black card. To finish it of I added a little gem for the eyes.

With Love On Your Special Day Card

 This card is well out of my comfort zone I don't use flowers and pearls on my card apart from the rare occasion.

This card is made with Products from a Crafters Companion box kit it had everything to make to card apart from the ink I used and the adhesive.

The kit for these items was number 20 Layering stencils.

I picked a base card then 2 purple layers of card then a piece of white card which I then used 3 different stencils and 3 ink colours to create my background. I then took another piece of white card and stamped my sentiment. I then added pearls to two of the corners and flowers on the other I used my ink on a dauber to add some pink to the petal edges of my flowers. I also daub round the edge of the piece of card my sentiment is on.

I am really pleased with how this card turned out.

Using Up Your 6 x 6 Papers - Shell's Craft Corner

Great way to use up all those 6 x 6 papers I have loads and yes they are great for matting and layering but I found these two ways to make cards using the 6 x 6 papers.

My first card:

 You will need 2 6 x 6 cards and a piece of 6 x 6 double sided patterned paper and a piece of white card.

White  pieces need to be 5 1/4 a 1 1/4 you will need 6 pieces then you need 6 pieces of patterned paper measuring 5 x 1 your sentiment piece will be White 3 1/4 x 1 1/4  patterned piece 3 x 1  piece to stamp sentiment on will be 2 3/4 x 3/4.

Second card:

 Base 6 x 6 white mat is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 your patterned piece will be 5 x 5 these need to be cut diagonally to make your triangle pieces which you will mat onto your white triangle pieces. Your sentiment piece will be white 1 1/4  x 3 1/4 patterned piece 1 x 5 and white piece to stamp on will be 4 3/4 x 3/4. 

Hope you will now get using up all those 6 x 6 papers
