Pixie Powders with Lisa Horton stamp

IMAG1953

I purchased all 5 sets of Lisa’s stamps from Set Craft and have made a set of cards with them. I thought I would share a step by step tutorial on how I created them.

Check out How to Create a Card Using Stamps by Lisa Horton by Angela Drummond on Snapguide.

Here is the set I created. Unfortunately I couldnt capture the shine on the backgrounds that the Pixie Powders create.

Today’s post is a lot about stamping and a little die cutting. I took an 8 x 8 scalloped card and stamped the Filigree Peony stamp (by John Lockwood) in Brilliance copper ink all around the outside. I used the stamp twice before reinking it giving me the faded look with some of them.

I used the Ravello striplet die which I cut 4 times around a piece of pearlised card to form a square backgrounds and backed this with a copper card cut with the double pierced square dies to leave a small border. I stamped the Tuileries Frame Stamp in perfect medium and embossed it with copper embossing powder. I cut it out with the Auckland die (outside and centre) and trimmed around the stamped part in the centre. I used the decorative centre from the die in the copper card.

I finished the card off with a few gems coloured with copies to match with the card colours.

Spring Birthday card with Sue Wilson dies

Spring birthday card

Today I have a spring birthday card to share with you. I think I am in love with the Honeydew card colour, it is so fresh looking.

Spring birthday card

I cut the New Zealand Collection Wellington die out of some coconut white card and then rotated it 45 degrees and cut it again.  I then backed this with some Honeydew foundation card. I used a tonic die to cover the hole left by the Wellington die then circles to matt the Perspectives Collection Happy Birthday Circle.  The outside frames were cut using the noble pierced squares and the 3 flowers in the middle using Finishing Touches – Perfect Peony Complete Petals and Finishing Touches – Perfect Peony Open Petals. The finished card measures 6.5″ square.

Fun with the Canadian Collection Die Set

Canadian Border Card in lilac

I thought I would have a bit of a play around with Canadian Collection of dies by Sue Wilson and here is what I came up with.

Canadian Border Card in lilac

First I cut out the Canadian Collection – Background in some coconut white foundation card and cut it up into 6 lots of 4 squares which I then mounted onto some lilac card. Next I cut the Canadian Collection – Corner, Border & Tag out 4 times in some lilac foundation card, adhered it onto the lilac background and mitred at the corners. The whole thing was then put on to a matt of coconut white. I used the montreal die to cut out a matt for the center tag and stamped a sentiment onto the coconut white card. Perfect Peony Open Petals and Perfect Peony Complete Petals were used along with the Delicate Fronds die to finish off the card. The finished card measures 6″ by 7 3/4″.

Bird Crazy Birthday

Bird Crazy Birthday card

I just love these birds by Tim Holtz, they are so quirky. I made this card for my nephews birthday.

Bird Crazy Birthday card

I used masks and colour cloud inks to create the background and distress inks to paint the birds and accessories. I used the dies to cut out the birds but had to cut the other bits by hand.

Thanks card with Sue Wilson dies

Thanks Card using Sue Wilson dies

Well here I am again, ages since my last post but a lot has been happening around here. Both of our boys have started to surf over the summer largely thanks to NAS Moray and Nairn. Number one son has made the huge transition to secondary school. Thankfully the support is SO much better than his primary school and he is doing quite well.

As you can imagine, with all this going on, I haven’t really had much time to craft. I have manage to make a card this weekend for the fab staff in the canteen at the academy as they have been brilliant in helping out with number one son being able to get lunch that he likes to eat.

The finished card size is 7 1/4″ square

Large Birthday Card

Do you ever get started on making a card and it all grows out of control? Thats exactly what happened with my Mum’s borthday card this year. I started out with the new Celtic Dreams collectable die set and cut out 6 of the diamonds, before I realised it the size of the card was 9 inches square!
