The card I have up today is made with Sue Wilson’s paper pad teamed up with a stamp from John Lockwood
I stamped the Especially for You stamp from Johns Lily of the Valley Sentiments – Clear Stamp Set onto wisteria foundation card and used a circle punch to cut it out, I then mounted it onto a scalloped circle in a darker purple. I cut the New Zealand Collection Hamilton die out of some white card and glued this to a piece of purple paper from Sue’s paper pad which I mounted onto the darker purple card cut with the noble pierced squares.
I used the wellington die and cut it into 4 which I glued behind the center square and mounted this onto a piece of the purple paper that is the reverse side of the piece used in the middle. The whole thing was finished off with a mat in the darker purple and some pearls for the 2 opposite corners.
Today I have a card I made using one of Sue Wilson’s striplet dies.
I took a piece of coconut white card and cut out the Mini Striplets Intertwining Circles 3 times across, leaving the die in place each time in order to ink through the circles. I then cut the outside of the square with Noble – Double Pierced Squares. The middle is the Expressions Ornate Oval – Just For You.
Today’s post is a lot about stamping and a little die cutting. I took an 8 x 8 scalloped card and stamped the Filigree Peony stamp (by John Lockwood) in Brilliance copper ink all around the outside. I used the stamp twice before reinking it giving me the faded look with some of them.
I used the Ravello striplet die which I cut 4 times around a piece of pearlised card to form a square backgrounds and backed this with a copper card cut with the double pierced square dies to leave a small border. I stamped the Tuileries Frame Stamp in perfect medium and embossed it with copper embossing powder. I cut it out with the Auckland die (outside and centre) and trimmed around the stamped part in the centre. I used the decorative centre from the die in the copper card.
I finished the card off with a few gems coloured with copies to match with the card colours.
