Berries and Cream....

Hi Everybody

Busy card making to get my September samples out and here they are...

The theme this time is Berries and Cream, using reds, greens and creams for the papers and stamps that go well together.
Bright and fresh colours, a complete contrast to the last set of cards. My Minds Eye papers which are always my favourites.

Stamps used by Sweet Dixie and Cardio Majestix, which I have for sale. Distressed ink- Barn Door which gives a nice strawberry red colour, very appropriate for the berries.

I have used cream cards this time, different shapes too.

First sample using the Sweet Dixie stamp:-

Second sample using the fresh green gingham papers from Craft Creations.

The two classes will be on :-

Sat. 3rd   September - FULL
Sat. 10th September

Four cards:- £16:00

Let me know if you would like to come along.
Thank you for popping by.

August Card of the Month......Flower Stitched Border

Good Morning Ladies......

Back with Card of the Month....Stitched Flower Border. Long title, but the name of the stamp I have used from Woodware. A very versatile stamp that can be used for any occasion and that can be coloured in, or paper pieced, like I have done......with a little stitching added.

Instead of putting the finished picture on to a card, I mounted it on to Calico, which I then put on a wooden embroidery hoop, makes a change. A nice gift as well as a card.

I have put a couple of close ups, so that you can see where I have added embroidery thread. The stitching is just added on over the stamped areas. A little felt too.

I have used the following:-                                                                                                                      

1 x Embroidery Hoop
1 Piece calico
1 x Woodware stamp "Stitched Flower Border"
1 x  12"x12" Studiolight paper- La Provence
Circle Die and Scalloped Circle Die
Versafine Black Inkpad
Clear Embossing Powder
Thin Black Liner pen
Small piece green felt
1 x Button
Cotton Ribbon
Green Embroidery thread
2 x Brads
Stickles Lime Green

I have the papers in stock for this card, Calico Inks etc.
Hope you like the card.

Till next time, Take care.
Thank you for popping by.
