Ursula's cookie heart

This was an A5 card which I've had for ages, loved the backing paper, made the card blank then lost the plot when it came to putting a topper etc on it.
Saw the new challenge at the digi garden and hey presto I could use the card blank (and new dig purchases) , althought I chopped it in half and made two small cards.

the pink spotty paper is from Papermania 'Summer Bloom' pad.

decadence pt 3

691 by purplemurtlecrafts

Fianlly did an atc using the teeny bit of backing paper left, and a random page from 'a little book of cats' book I found.

Using the remainder of the design sheet, this is an A6 gatefold.

decadence pt 1

Another stand up card using Debbi Moore's Art Deco cd, didn't do much to this at all - seeing that I haven't replaced my holographic powder that I threw all over myself and the floor. The floor still looks like Tinkerbell has paid me a visit or three. The images are so glossy and ornate that it doesn't matter that its not glittered.

a-tiss-ue pt 1

My first attempt at using tissue paper on a card

687 by purplemurtlecrafts

I scrunched some paper up and dabbed at the purple Stazon ink, kept unscrunching and rescrunching the bit of paper till I was sure most of it and been dunked in the ink. Flattened it out and wrapped it round a piece of card, again so no marks could be seen, then arranged it to the card as you see it and added a few bits. The only thing left for me to do is to find a nice Angel verse to compliment it. (and 'for someone special' might be pulled off)

a-tiss-ue pt 2

okay. blogger is being naughty so have had to put photo on flickr first.


over at cardexchangeuk, we're doing a tissue paper card swap, having only just purchased some white tissue paper (for I am attempting to pretty up a candle) I decided the Goddess's were handing me my fate on a plate, so I've signed up for the swap, and also an atc swap but thats for another post.

My second attempt, which has given me an idea for something else as well......

Used an A6 white card blank, stamped a flower design onto the white tissue paper using Glam Gold pigment ink, folded that over a smaller piece of white card so no glue marks would be seen, then using the Glam Gold and also Metallic Bronze dabbed away at both flower embellishments till I was happy with the effect. Stuck everything on and blinged it up a bit with gold cord and some gems.
Was going for the simple and sophisticated look, managed the simple not sure about the other *g*
