Floral birthday for Paper Rose

 Today, I'm sharing a floral card for Paper Rose Studio.


I started by masking the bottom of a panel of white cardstock, and then stamped the Hayley's Bouquet stamp in the top part of the card. I coloured the image with Copic markers. I also used one of the pale R copic markers to colour the edges of my card base. I stamped the sentiment from Modern Poppies in Versamark ink onto black cardstock, and white embossed the sentiment. I cut the sentiment down with some fussy cutting around the letters below the main line of the sentiment, adhered the sentiment banner to my coloured panel, and adhered it to my card front. I finished with some subtle gemstones.

Butterflies for Vanessa

 Vanessa Middleton is a shop owner in the craft industry who has been having a really tough time of late, with some serious health issues. A few of us decided to cheer her up with an Instagram party!

I made this card with dies from Paper Rose, some yupo with alcohol inks and hot pink foil, plus some inks and a sentiment stamp from Hero Arts.

Let's get scrappy at Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero

There's a new challenge at Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero - let's get Scrappy! 

I used little scrap strips of glitter cardstock to create the sentiment and the frame. I adhered them to a piece of vellum, and then added them to a card that opens in the middle!

A little floral note for Paper Rose

I stamped and white embossed Brooke's Bouquet clear stamp onto some Bristol smooth cardstock. I then coloured the images with Zig clean color real brush markers and a waterbrush. I added s stamped black sentiment, some pink enamel dots, and mounted the panel onto a white card base with some pink ink blending at the bottom.

Two for one Sweet n Sassy background

I've been trying to mix up my colour palettes a little bit recently. Don't worry, my favourite colours are still blue and rainbow, but there's noting wrong with trying out something different once in a while. 

I made a 6x6 panel with this background stamp, so got two cards for the price of one!
