Tri-fold step cards - Kaszazz


I have a couple of cards to share today. They are both the same style, but different sizes, and use mainly the same products. Stamps, papers, inks and dies from Kaszazz.

The base for this first card was cut using a Spellbinders die.
Paper is from Terrace garden collection. The small envelope is cut from vellum. Paper is embossed in Leaves folder. Filled with sunshine and  Leaf stems stamps were used. The front sentiment from Greetings is gold embossed and die cut with the Shield die. Ivory card is placed inside the envelope to add a greeting. Dragonflies are cut with Flutterby die, wings highlighted with gold gel pen, and fixed to the card with glossy accents.
Focal image is Spring Border, stamped in archival ink on to the paper and also on to ivory card. These were coloured with alcohol ink markers and the flowers from second image fussy cut and mounted over the originals, then coated with glossy accents. Some seam binding loops and rhinestones finish the design.

This card is larger than the first and was cut by hand. It has been made in the same way as the first card, but has a folded tag for the inside greeting.
Main image is Spring Flowers. Wings of a Butterfly and Moroccan butterfly have also been used. Flower centres have gold brads, and the rhinestones have been coloured with alcohol markers.
These cards are a little special and are fun to make.

Journal Covers - Stampscapes


I recently had a request for a journal that would be suitable for a male. Here are the first two examples.
I started with a lined journal which had a plain black cover, and have used Stampscapes stamps.


 Images were stamped with black India ink on to white gloss card, then coloured with sponged on dye inks. The ship is die cut using a Kaisercraft die and the seagulls using an IO die. Two layers of stamped card have been torn and added to the bottom waves, with the wave tips and the sails highlighted with a stardust pen. This panel was matted to white gloss card, then fixed to the journal front.



This cover is created the same way but has the addition of a shell brad in the bottom left.
Both journals have a pocket envelope attached inside the front cover, and stamped images inside both front and back covers. Each scene has been built up using a variety of several different stamps.

Recipe Box (No. 2)...


A while ago I shared a recipe box with you.... see here.  I have created another version of the same box - using different papers - featuring cupcakes, teapots, cups and flowers for the outside of the box...

and co-ordinating papers for the inside tabbed sections.

I used my envelope maker to create the tabs and in each section have placed about 20 lined cards to write or adhere your recipes on.

Mmmm makes me feel like cooking now - well maybe eating hehe!

Thanks for visiting,

Wedding Cards...

Good morning,

Hope you have a great day planned.  Inspiring you today with a selection of Wedding Cards I have created recently...  Inspiration comes from many places - I have been inspired by Stamps, embossing folders, flowers, punches and dies. Another place you can look for inspiration is Pinterest... if you have never looked on Pinterest Boards I recommend you do - the ideas that people have are so amazing!  I am often inspired by Pinterest - I like to take an idea and change it by using different stamps/embossing folders/dies etc...

Adding a touch of colour to Wedding Cards can sometimes make all the difference - pale colours generally work best, but then again who wouldn't like a wedding card with a splash of Red?

Enjoy your day!
