Woodland princess

It has been quite a while, hasn’t it? In fact, the last card I put up was before summer hit. I knew it was going to be a busy summer, but I wasn’t quite prepared for what was to follow. I have been working a lot, and I have also been on a few trips as well as planning my next holiday. In two weeks time I’m heading off to Thailand for a friend’s wedding. I am so looking forward to that and we have a ton of stuff planned! I reckon I’ll need a holiday as soon as I get back home.. hehe.

We have been very fortunate this year. Not only have we had a beautiful and hot summer, but the autumn has been absolutely fantastic. At the time of writing this I almost feel guilty for not being outside in the brilliant sunshine enjoying the beauty autumn has to offer. It is so amazingly colourful, more than we usually get. I have posted a few photos of it on my instagram account. If you’d like to take a look, my username there is livefall.

Anyway, back to business! This is a card I did in fact make before summer. It is a confirmation card, as some of the others I posted before my unplanned break. I coloured in a Saturated Canary image, using Copic Markers, this time in greens. (The previous one I did was in yellow, and other I did which I have yet to post is in purple.) I used a Martha Stewart edge puncher to create a border and I used it to make a border around the main image as well. The brown leaves are also made with a Martha Stewart puncher. The papers are probably Inkido, although I could be wrong as it’s quite a while ago. The lovely ribbon is from The Hobby House. As always, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the little corner buttons are called card candy and can be found at Craftwork Cards.

Hello there

I am back into card making again and I have coloured up several images ready to be made into cards this week. It is about time I make some more where I use my stamps and colour them in again as I have used a lot of pre coloured ones as of late. They are so easy to use, though, so I figured if I pre-coloured some myself it would help, heh.

This card has been made with Tim Holtz paper, a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp with distressed edges as well as a Lili of the Valley pre-coloured image. Isn’t it adorable? The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have also used candi from Craftwork Cards; the card blank is also from there. The branches are made with a Martha Stewart puncher.

Shabby circles

This post is with a card I made a month ago, but I couldn’t post it here as it was for my sister. I had asked if she wanted anything specific and her request was that she wanted something entirely different to everything I had made before, with a vintage feel to it. After a lot of thinking, this is what I came up with. Happy birthday, lil sis.
