Anyway, the clean and simple look had to be choice for this card. The card base is a nice pearlised texture so I matted a piece of ivory/gold coloured card which has been through the Wizard in a Cuttlebug Heart folder on top. I was lucky to have a piece of ribbon in my stash that matched (it's beautiful ribbon from Anna Griffin). The stamp is from the Do-craft range of Forever Friends stamps, which has been coloured with Prisma pencils.
Have a good weekend everyone.X

Here's a couple of recent cards I've done:
This is a miniature Clarity Stamp which I've used to create a reflection scene. It's very easy to do if you own a brayer. Just ink up your stamp and roll the brayer up and over it like so:
Next, position your brayer in the centre of your card and roll the image onto the card creating your reflection. You then re-ink your stamp and position this above the reflection (many of you have probably seen Barbara do this at the Exhibitions).
I then added some background leaves from a Tapestry set of stamps. For the refection of the leaves just ink the stamp and blot it onto a piece of scrap paper to give a more faded look.
I used Pine Needles Distress Ink for a bit of shading and also to create the water (I'm just loving Distress Inks at the moment, nearly got the whole set).
I used a Rollergraph to create the leafy background, using Graphite Black Brilliance Ink on the white card and White Versacolor ink on the black card.
Again, I used my Scor-pal on the black card for a grid effect, but I don't think it shows on the photo and nesties to mount the image. This card was great fun to do.
Next, a simple Elzybells Christmas card. I really like the Elzybells stamps, they're so easy to use and I love the simplicity of them.I've recently dug out my Prisma pencils after a phase of Faber Castell watercolour pencils. I'd forgotten how great they are and what great depth of colour you can get from them. The background card was stamped with an Elzybells snowflake stamp using Polar Blue Versacolor inkpad and I've just distressed the edges a bit. The snowflake die cut is from Sizzix with a Papermania brad added. I decided to get my sewing maching out for a bit of stitching around the main image and added a bit of glitter for the snow.
Hubby is at work today so I've got a few hours to play with a few more new Elzybells stamps I've just got.
Hope you have a good weekend. X

Here's a close up of the gold glitter dots and distressed edge.

You probably can't tell from the photo, but the black card is scored into a grid pattern (got a new Scor-pal so was having a little play with it). The centre of the black card has been cut out to give a sort of window look and the small square with the image on placed centrally inside. The leaves came from a Tapestry stamp set I have (again never used until this card) which I think give a nice framed effect. I just added some Weathered Wood distress ink around the edges and added some gold coins (from a Habico set of stamps) and gold ribbon. I edged the black card with some gold leaf. Now I've managed to use her once I think she will be making another appearance, I think maybe a reflection next.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you all have a great bank holiday. x

Tom Boy downloaded papers
This was a bit of an experiment. Not too keen on it really.
Paper pricked the corners
This card was made for my friends daughter who has just graduated from Uni and is now a fully qualified doctor. I wanted to personalise it with her name so did the sentiment on the computer. I stamped the image after.
That's it for now folks, hope to be back shortly catching up with a few blogs. Tats for now.x
