Flying high

It's the turn of yet another old stamp set today, as I wanted to do something with a plane in it.  Unfortunately the clouds on the embossing folder haven't shown up very well in this photo and I didn't realise this until after I had sent the card out. Although it's a simple card to make I was quite pleased with the results.

The materials used are
Ink: Stazon Black, Memento Tuxedo Black
Markers: Real red
Card stock: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Card base: (NSU)
Stamps: Need for Speed (retired), Something to Say
Embossing folders: Cloudy Day (retired)
Punches: Word Window
Framelits: Ovals Collection

Will be back again soon with more cards

Old and New

Today I'm posting a card I made for my friend's Dad, he's a very spritely 80 year old now. And I wanted to give him a card to celebrate. I had seen this stamp set on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect for him, even though it's no longer in the Catalogue. I teamed it up with some framelits and thinlits. I'm pleased to say my friend said he was thrilled with it.

I stamped the image with VeraMark and then sponged it in Crumb Cake.  Re stamped the image in Soft Suede and cut it down to just the one word.

The materials used are:

Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, VersaMark
Card stock: Early Expresso, Very Vanilla
Card base: (NSU)
Stamps: From My Heart (retired)
Embossing Powder: Clear
Framelits: Ovals Collection
Thinlits: Hello you, Little Numbers
DSP: Neutrals
Accessories: Candy dots neutrals

Will be back again soon with more cards

True Love, Punch Art

It's been a couple of weeks since I've been about, as we've just spent 5 days in Ireland and it was wonderful.  We did the Titanic experience and also the Giant's Causeway, which was amazing.  We then travelled to Dublin and spent an afternoon trying to find Molly Malone ( I think they've moved her from where she was before) she's now in one of the not so well known streets.

For today's card it's one I made before I went away for a good friend who's wedding anniversary was while we were away. 

The materials used are:
Inks:Real Red
Markers: Sahara Sand
Card stock: Real Red, Whisper White
Card base: (NSU)
Stamps: Memorable Moments (retired)
Embossing folders: Perfect Polka Dots (retired)
Punches: Bird Builder, Owl Builder
Framelits: Hearts Collection (retired)
DSP: Stacked With Love (retired)
Accessories: Jewel Basics Rhinestones
