These 2 cards are for a set of adult twins so whilst I have not made identical cards, I have used the same theme. After a conversation on Twitter earlier this morning, I now can't believe I am going to put this, but both the images and backing papers are from the CupCake Crafting Potpourri Craft Cd
Can't believe this has taken me so long but well worth the effort I think. Its for my mum for Mothers day as she likes gardening. Its an easel card and I've propped up the lady and the watering cans of foldable cubes so they stand on their own away from the easel section. I also used a white pen to colour her hair as my mums hair is pure white (wish I could use a pen on mine lol)
After watching lovely Nikky Hall on C & C and seeing the beautiful flower card she made, I just had to have a go. I cut the hearts out on the craft robo and edge them with a coffee bean brilliance ink pad. I imported the paper into MCS and added the flourishes to finish it off
Had a small canvas frame lying around and after watching a craft show on Create & Craft last week where a lady decorated a wooden frame, I thought I'd get messy and have a go with the canvas frame. I literally just picked up the tubs of embossing powder and just kept throwing it on - then covered the whole thing in 3 layers if Ultra Thick embossing powder
Made a complete mess and there's embossing powder and glitter everywhere but what the heck. The dust will still be there tomorrow but that 1 moment where I smiled at my artwork only happens once
Having never done a K card before, I was intrigued by the mechanism of the card itself so I took the template from the MCS Back to Basics cd and made this. I have done it "as is" so to speak as it was more of an experiment than anything else, but I like it for its simplicity and its one more to go into the collection box for the RAF cards :-)
Had a bit of a giggle to myself with these 2 cards as they are for the same household. The husband asked me to make a card for his wife and as I walked into another part of the house, the wife asked me to make a card for the husband :-)
This is for the wife to give to the husband. The image is from a CD by Bev Rochester - you can find a link to her beautiful blog over on the side panels under Bev R's Blog
and this is for the husband to give to the wife. The image is from the Popcorn Romance CD
If I had tried just a teeny weeny bit harder, I could have got into a real mess with this card today. I couldn't get the strip of paper ribbon the right size to thread through the butterfly punch so have 4 strips of aper left over now with no use (at the moment). I then used Crafters Companions Spray & Sparkle on the tag and out it down on my craft mat upside down to put foam pads on - BEFORE the spray had dried so have to get the glitter off my craft mat.
BUT now thats its all done, I am very happy with it and I'd like to present my entry for this weeks challenge over on 2 sketches for you.
The images and backing paper are all from MCS Flourishes 1
This first card is for a gentleman to give to his nephew. The images and backing paper are from Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew CD. I printed them onto photo paper, went over the images with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder to achieve the glazed effect
This second card is my 1st attempt at an easel card and the image sheet has been designed by the wonderful Dee Paramour
