Over at the Less Is More site this week is a ‘lucky dip’, we get to choose between using the two sentiments Thank You or Congratulations.Haven’t been able to sleep so have made a few cards, well five… Am entering them all in one post for ease of commenting. A couple of them are good and a couple need slight adjustments. Hoping that you will tell me what you think they should be.
Just a quick note to say that if any of the images don’t look right please click on them as they open correctly. Sorry if this causes any of you problems.
DL sized card, used a smaller netbook cover for the flowers. The stamp is from Elusive Images and was stamped using Brilliance Ink Starlight Black. The bling was already placed in position. I think that the sentiment should have been stamped horizontally and not diagonally and possibly in Black ink to match the vibrancy of the flowers.
The heart was die cut using my Pazzle Inspiration then run through the Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing folder. Used mirri card and then coloured using alcohol inks and bling from stash. The stamp is from CD stamp set and used Versafine Black ink. Here is a macro of the embellishment where i hope you can see the ink colours a little better.Something is missing on this card but not too sure what…
Hoping this is CAS as have used a lovely green cardstock but have left enough space for it to work. Rounded the bottom corners on this card and have added some lovely tie dyed ribbon of orange and yellow. The green cardstock has calmed down the vibrant colour of the ribbon which i like. The image is from Kanban and have mounted it onto a plain cream paper. The sentiment is from CD Stamp set and again used Versafine ink, the bling is from stash.
Rounded the top corners using a WRMK Corner Rounder half inch size. The birds were dies cut using my Pazzle Inspiration and are different sizes, added pearls for their eyes. The flower sentiment is from a set by Craftword Cards, they colour up beautifully and are pearlised, used Peeled Paint DI to colour round the edge. The border was made from using the lime green cardstock and painting some Verro Paste colour 903 through a stencil from Creative Imaginations called swirls. This paste is amazing, this is the first time i have used it. You only need a small amount to add dimension and sparkle to your cards etc. This macros shot shows how it looks up close.
Card Five This card has to be one of my favourites but i’m not too sure it is CAS as it doesn’t leave much white space at all… Maybe on reflection i should have used a larger sized base card. Loving the colour combinations here and the simple message of Congratulations. Used Kanban Kit of Frames and sentiments, layered up two of the different frames using similar tones of the same colour. The aqua and copper background swirl card was made by me using the Cuttlebug Embossing folder and then using Ranger Ink Dabbers to add the colour. Here is another and i promise the last macro of this post lol.
So, there are the five very tired creations and i am off to get some sleep if i can as my eyelids are now drooping. Hope the post isn’t too long and you can leave me some feedback. Love to learn this way and won’t get upset if you don’t like anything i’ve produced this week so feel free to say what you will.
