You are in my thoughts


Two very similar cards made with elements from a kit - the lilies are decoupaged, although that's hard to see here. The sentiment on the first one says 'You are in my thoughts' and the second one says 'Thinking of you'.

Sympathy


Another CAS sympathy card using a hammered white card blank on to which I swiped distress inks - bundled sage and antique linen. I then stamped one of my favourite Penny Black stamps 'sparklers' inked with memento rich cocoa and added part of the Hobby craft sentiment stamp.

Colours are for The craft garden June challenge:

Krafty birthday


I based this card on the sketch for CAS colours & sketches 29:


I used a kraft card blank on to which I stuck the striped brown and white ribbon, adding the prima flower and a couple of leaves from Hooked on Craft, a Create textured rub on and printed part of one of my favourite Penny Black stamps 'sparklers' inking the stamp with memento rich cocoa.

With sympathy


I had a request last night for some more sympathy cards, so I made a few while I was at it.

This is simply a white card blank on to which I put shaded lilac distress ink pad direct to the card. I then stamped it with one of the Clearly hesotted stamps building blocks set, once more using the shaded lilac to ink it. I then used my oldest little stamp that often comes in handy to stamp over this.

The sentiment stamp is from Hobby craft (I masked off the left hand piece) and stamped over with the same stamp as before.

The photo doesn't do this justice - so hard to get a good photo of a white card.

Birthday adventure


Another card made with a background printed with paints and my gelli plate, once again using a lattice piece of card as a stencil and the Tando mask by Andy skinner, I wasn't sure about the splash of red and blue at the side or the panel at the bottom, but I think the Sandy Lion stickers go OK with this.


This is for:

That craft place: independence day - red, white & blue
Polka doodles 24: male theme
Creative creations 12: for dad/masculine
Try it on Tuesday: one for the men
Kitty bee aloha Friday 1: father's day/masculine

Relax ...


... it's your birthday.

Another card with a background made with a print on black card from the gelli print using black and white acrylic paints and a lattice card as a stencil, mounted on to a black card blank with the addition of some stickers and the sentiment generated with my dymo letratag label maker.
