Mermaid and turtle

I went through the photos I’ve taken of the cards made over this summer and realised I have made quite a few more than I had thought. This means I am miles behind posting them here on the blog, so it’s about time I upped the frequency on putting them up. The recent two-week gap in posting them was due to a holiday, and I hadn’t scheduled any. However, back to work and back to blogging this week.

This first one is inspired by summer. I have used a pre-coloured topper by The Hobby House, a Sylvia Zet image. I distress inked the image around the edge and made an easel card out of it. The flowers, ribbon and bow are all by Wild Orchid Crafts. The sea shells were bought in a shop called Black Design and the leaves were made with a Martha Stewart puncher.

For my inspirational post this time I have used one of the Wee Stamps toppers from The Hobby House. The ribbon, pearls and roses are also from there. I have used paper from First Edition Paper, a Martha Stewart puncher for the leaves and Tim Holtz liquid pearls for the rain effect.


Here is a side on view.



Party mice

All out of ideas for another masculine card, I decided to instead go with something reasonably neutral. The recipient of this card is quite fond of green, so that was an obvious choice. Little did I know when I started that I would end up with orange of all colours! Anyway, the card was made and it’s an easel card!
