This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Blue Art Nouveau Flower

The theme for this week's Stamp Something Challenge is 'Flowers or Showers'. I opted for the flowers part of the challenge and used a stamp I bought ages ago but haven't got around to using until now (sound familiar anyone?).

The flower image by Papermania was stamped onto blue card using clear pigment ink and embossed using Personal Impressions Violet Pearl embossing powder. The image was coloured using Stamps Away mica powders. The dots, from the Papermania Marie Curie Daffodil set, were stamped in the corners and clear embossed.
The image was then matted onto royal blue alchemy pearl card.

Patterned papers from the Papermania Venetian Skies Creative Tones paper pad were matted onto a blue DL card and the flower panel was added on top. Corners were die cut using the Sizzix Sizzlet Elegant Enhancement #3 die using the light blue and royal blue cardstock.

The sentiment, taken from the Papermania Jesse Edwards mini set of stamps was stamped and embossed using Versacolor Black pigment ink and the violet pearl embossing powder.

I decorated the inside of the card by adding a strip of the patterned paper stamped with the flower stamp and ColorBox Lavender pigment ink, which was also stamped in the centre of the white paper. This was over-stamped with the sentiment from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages stamp set using Versafine Imperial Purple archival pigment ink.



I Kathleen a lovely card and the stamp is beautiful. Dianne xx
