2 Cards for You

November 15, 2010

Here are 2 cards using new stamp sets from Crafty Secrets.

First one up is from the stamp set "Down on the Farm". This is a large stamp set with about 25 different images that you can use to make all sorts of farm scenes. Here is the Farm scene that I created using this stamp set and Copic markers.

My second card uses an image from the "Little St. Nick" set and sentiment from the "Christmas Mail' set. I used Copic markers to color in the image and then added some Polar White Flower Soft.
Hope you all are having a wonderful Monday.

Floral Art Frame

November 13, 2010

I simply love making stuff with flowers and when Sandy from Crafty Secrets sent me this "Floral Art" stamp set, I immediately new what I wanted to do with it. So here is the frame that I made using one of the 2 floral images from this small stamp set.

I stamped the images several times on white cs, then cut around the picture frame leaving some of the flower shapes to go over the inside border of the frame. The images were then colored with Copic Markers. I stamped the image 2 more times, colored and cut the individual flowers, distressed the edges of the flowers with a distressing tool and then layered it on top of the flowers on the left bottom corner of the frame. The inside and outside edges were distressed with Vintage Photo Distressing ink.

This is the close-up picture of the flowers that were cut and layered. You can see the layers and how it give dimension to the frame.
