Good Junk !

Hope everyone is having a fab Easter and thanks to all followers and commenters for their support, I really do appreciate it.

Here is another 6 x 4 inch postcard done as part of a swap over on UK Stampers Forum.  I decided to do a colourful collage.

I used digi prints, stickers and stamping micron pens to complete it.  Some white was added with a Signo white pigment pen.

The postcards are sent 'naked' through the post so care needs to be exercised when putting dimensional elements onto them. I always spray with matt acrylic sealant to secure.

The theme had to include a crown somewhere so you can see mine easily !

Blocky Flowers

Happy flowers to everyone, especially when it's their birthday.  This birthday card was made on a Kraft card square card base. The papers were assembled as shown and the base layer was sewn with white thread.

The remaining layers were stamped and cut with a set of Sizzix dies and Distress Inks.  They were layered and embellished with some coloured pearls. A couple of birdies were also stamped and die cut  and applied.

The sentiment plate was stamped and layered and applied on foam pads.

Mums Card & Box

Happy Mothers Day to you all and especially to my own Mum !!

This is my Mum's card & gift for this Mothers Day.  The card was made using some digi papers cut into equal sized blocks and mounted as shown.

The two layered plates were made using a Sizzix die, one on blue card and one on white.  Both were applied on foam pads to raise them.  The sentiment was stamped in Archival black ink. Finishing touch was to add a paper flower on a sticky dot.

The box was made using another large matchbox Sizzix die.  This was cut out, assembled and covered in panels of similar papers.  The bow was added to finish.

Hope she likes it ........... guess what's in the box !

Steampunkery !

Here's a card I made on a Kraft card base.  I have used 6 x 6 papers as the background with some letters trimmed out from paper also.

I have used rubber stamps from Darkroom Door to stamp all images (cogs, man with top hat , hot air baloon, butterfly & words)  Cogs & words were stamped in black Archival ink directly onto the background.  The man, balloon, compass & butterfly were stamped in Sepia Versafine and black Archival ink on white card and trimmed out.  The butterfly was coloured with a pencil.  The mans hat was embellished with Glossy Accents for a shine !

A honeycomb die was used to cut the mask which was coloured with worn lipstick Distress Ink.  Most edges were coloured with distress inks applied with cut'n'dry foam.  Once assembled the card was finished off with three dark brown brads as shown.

Little Collages - Freebie ATC's

Here are two collaged ATC's made from digi images along with stamping and some freehand penwork using Posca Pens.

I just love bright and bold colours and these just show what you can mix & match.  They are collaged on grey board.

Would love to know if you like them and I will send them to one commenter if you follow my blog and leave a comment.  Deadline for comments is 29/03/14 after which I will use a random number generator to select the chosen one !

If you are chosen I will ask for your postal addy so I can send the ATC's.

Good Luck !!

How Remarkable

This is one of a monthly swap we do over on the UK Stampers Forum so why not join us and have a go?  Our March theme is an 'Open' one so anything goes.

I have crafted a bright (and rather pink !) postcard entitled 'You Are Remarkable'.

The stout card blank was first trimmed to 6 x 4 inches and this was covered with a piece of digi printed paper.

Other elements were stamped with Versafine and Distress Ink, whilst a label with the words, some trimmed out images, Washi tape, stickers and doodling with a fine Micron pen complete the design.

Some edging was done using cut'n'dry foam and tumbled glass Distress Ink.  These postcards are sent to the recipient without any extra protection, so the postcard was given a coat of matt acrylic spray lacquer to help it through the postal system.
