Using stencil pastes in various colours I decorated a piece of black card (designed for this purpose) with the lovely stencil from Imagination Crafts. This was mounted onto gold card with some left-over strips of the card used for accents. The added butterflies were die-cut from, I think, a Terry’s All Gold chocolate box and the wings were shaped to add dimension. The whole card is 8″ x 8″.
Lee’s giant M
This card is one of the set I made for the Stamp Club project a couple of years ago – a card for every letter of the alphabet. A family member, with the surname Mackintosh deserved this card 🙂 A large Mosaic M on a background of Music with Metal washers to accent.
For a young lady who loves angels I stamped and embossed this design from Chocolate Baroque (can’t find a link to the stamp itself) and coloured her with Pro-markers. I die-cut the oval around her and layered her on a spotty, navy blue oval and mounted them both onto an 8″ x 8″ card base. The wordy stamp all about angels is from Crafty Individuals but I suspect it’s no longer available. The skull charm at the top is hanging inside a magnet which can be removed from the card and put on the fridge if desired.
Another large card – this time for a Stamp Club challenge. I stamped the houses (Crafty Individuals) in black ink onto the card and they appear a bit like extra ones behind those I’d stamped onto kraft card and cut out by hand. The pink firework in the middle is made with sparkle paste through a small snowflake stencil. The smaller ones are just a dollop of glitter glue spread outwards with a cocktail stick. There’s a die-cut flake in the upper left and the huge explosion is cut from green sparkle card (see a bit peeping out from the left of the black layer?) with a Sizzix Die (a flower, think this is discontinued also). The second photo shows the 3-dimensional aspect better but the colours are a little ‘off’. 🙂
I recently purchased the 3D Accordion die from Sizzix and it makes some very impressive cards. This is a simple one with just two panels but it seems you can just keep adding more and more! I used the bits that fell out of the die-cuts as corner accents and the main body was cut from kraft card which is white on the reverse (makes it easy to write your greeting there). I made the envelope from some paper I’ve had for many years and which I’ve always found too bright and too big a pattern to use elsewhere, it was being hand-delivered so I didn’t have to worry about what the Postie thought. 🙂
