Who can resist these adorable birds from Katzelkraft.  They have been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured using Chameleon Pens, fussy cut/hand cut out using scissors.

The card front has been cut using Graphic 45 patterned paper, this has been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut  white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares. The birds have also been popped up onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The clouds have been cut/embossed using Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sun and Clouds Etched Dies next they have been trimmed to size and glued onto the card front.  The sentiment is from The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Bird Crazy  - I love that sentiment!. It has been stamped onto black card stock using Imagine VersaMark ink and White Embossing Powder has been applied and then set using a Heat Tool.  Next it has been trimmed and popped up below the birds using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares in black.

Birthday Roses in Pink

Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I am sharing a Twist and Pop Up card using Karen Burniston Pop Up and Twist Dies along with patterned papers from publications.  The papers are such a pretty selection and I have tried to use every piece of them.


The card front has been created using two different papers and a strip of contrasting patterned paper across where the papers join.  Next it has been cut/embossed using one of my favourite dies - the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies and the  Platinum Die Cutting Machine .  The sentiment label is from Little Birdie Crafts and the Beautiful Border Swirls and pink pearls are from Want2Scrap.


The Pop up sentiment is such a lovely surprise when the card is opened. The largest Kathryn Labels have been layered with the third smallest Spellbinders Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies.  The sentiment is from a Penny Black Inc clear stamp set and has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  I have used the Karen Burniston Katherine Label Pop Up for the inside Pop Up and Twist Mechanism.  The embellished sentiment on the card front and the  flowers are from Little Birdie Crafts and the beautiful pink pearls are from Want2Scrap

Smile

Hello friends, today I am sharing a card created using a Penny Black Inc Collage image - I do love these stamps - colouring them - so easy and so pretty - we all have times when we need a quick card but want it to have that WOW factor - this is when collage images come into their own.


  Fold 24cm x 12cm white card stock in half to form the card base. Cut/emboss Spellbinders Nestabilities Hemstitch Squares Etched Dies Romancing the Swirl Becca Feeken
 using Authentique Paper. 


Stamp the image using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black Ink.  Colour the flowers using Chameleon Pens.  Add the coloured image to the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.


Using a Chameleon Pens.Blender Pen, go around the outside edges of the coloured image, allowing the Blender Pen to ‘blend’ in any areas that have gone over the lines.  This will add a soft ‘hue’ around your image.


Adhere a computer generated sentiment to the top left hand corner of the card front, using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.  Adhere Want2Scrap Blue Rhinestones to each corner.
