Floral Shabby Chic Card

I have another of my floral shabby chic cards, 

The background paper I have used a paper out of the Lemoncraft Painted Heart 6 x 6 pad, they are such pretty papers.

I gathered up another couple of papers that I thought went with it and tore one of them and the bottom of the floral paper and ruffed them all up around the edges. 

Then glued them on on top of the other but put a border die between the top and second papers.  A doily die cut on top of that and I was ready to start doing my floral spray.

I have used a selection of Wild Orchid mulberry flowers and some tiny paper rose, and then some die cut leaves in a couple of green papers and arranged them around the top right of the doily.  

Lastly a sentiment on a scalloped oval tag, a butterfly die cut, a few pink gems and a resin angel and the card was finished.

Ewe have my heart Valentine card - cutsie

This is my last Valentine card this year, a cutsie one this time, and quite an easy one to produce.

I started by stamping a small piece of card with the roses all over background stamp and then also stamped the sheep with the heart from the Ewe are the best stamp set and also a sentiment from that same stamp set.

Next I ink blended a background with spun sugar and squeezed lemonade distress inks onto Strathmore Bristol smooth water colour paper. In my opinion this is the best card for distress blending, it is so smooth and effortless!

I coloured in the sheep and the rose background with Zig real brush clean colour markers (a gift to myself for Christmas seen my channel is doing so well!). Not a lot of colour, and nothing fancy.  I fussy cut out the sheep and made the sentiment into a banner, I also cut a heart shape out of the rose background with a heart die

To put the card together by sticking the distress inked card panel down with double-sided tape, put some foam tape on the back of the heart, sheep and sentiment banner, and put them all onto the top third of the card.  I feel this is the most pleasing to the eye, instead of slap bang in the middle of the card.

A few clear sparkling sequins and the card was complete.
