Hand Drawn Frames. Bella and Pretty Kitty.

Hello, and welcome! 
I have been doing Zentangle drawings lately, and decided that a curvy hand-drawn frame would look perfect with a black and white card. 
I knew which stamp set to choose and went straight to these two coordinating sets. 
I started with the inside of the cards first, because I wanted to use my Copic markers to shade parts of the image before committing to the front panels. 

I used cool greys, C1 and C3, and a 0.3 black Copic Multiliner to give some definition in the shadows, and to "ground" the image of the kitty.

For the outside of the cards I added C5 for a little more depth of shadow. 

For the kitty frame, I simply drew some wavy lines with breaks in the lines and made sure the image was in front of the framed area.

                 For the Puppy Card I started with 2 wavy parallel lines, then sectioned them off with curved stripes, then coloured leaving the centres blank to look like the frame was 3D. It gives an interesting effect, and is very simple to do, once you have practised a few times on scratch paper.

I hope you enjoyed today's project. I like both frames, but I'm not sure which you prefer. Leave me a comment below, and thanks for visiting today.

Sparkly Tulle Windows. Stampin' Up! Australian Demonstrator

Hello, and welcome to my blog! 
There is a video tutorial for this set of cards at the end of this post.
I have three special cards for you today, and I know you're going to love this technique.
I have used the stamp set "A Little Wild " to create a set of Tulle Window Cards that are as cute on the inside as they are on the outside!
I have floated the images on a sparkly tulle window that is sandwiched between the layers.

This technique is also suitable for acetate sheets if you don't have any tulle handy, although tulle is readily available in any fabric store and is inexpensive too. I found this soft white tulle with silver sparkly glittery pieces embedded in the fabric, at Spotlight.

I cased this idea from the very talented Jennifer McGuire, and have put a link to her post in the video.
The stamp set I have used really suits this technique, since it not only has matching framelits, but also has an image of the back of each of the cute little animals that match perfectly.

See how cute the inside of each of the cards looks! Aren't they just darling?  I REALLY love this technique.

I hope you give these a try. You can purchase the stamp set and framelit bundle, as well as the Stitched Framelits that were used to cut out the windows,  from my online Stampin' Up! Store

Birthday Blooms Two Ways. Australian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Hello, and thanks for visiting my blog today!
Here are 2 cards I put together using different techniques. I made the first card  on Stampin' Up! Shimmery white paper, which I had lightly spritzed with water and matted it to a DSP background

I stamped a separate piece of card stock with the sentiment and popped it up on dimensionals, then added 3 small rhinestones that I had coloured with Copic markers and left to dry.

For the second card I used a vellum overlay, after stamping the image as a background . I white embossed the vellum, then added a Tempting Turquoise piece of card underneath so the greeting would show through. I attached the vellum to the top of the card using Washi Tape and I mounted it all onto a thick white card stock base. I fussy cut another bloom I had stamped and lightly spritzed and adhered it to the vellum as the focal image. I love how the background peeks through!

 I hope you enjoyed today's project. Have a great weekend.
Thanks so much for shopping with me1
