Mixing it up

Today I want to share with you three makes from this week. Quite a productive week for me at the moment.
The first card is one I  made for my BIL & his wife. I have used a Spellbinders die and Tim Holrz sentiment border and quote. Of course I had to get a bit of glitter in on the act so used some by Martha Stuart

This next one is for my Mom on Mothers Day tomorrow here in the UK. Another Spellbinder die and I layered the butterfly by cutting out an extra one from the diecut. The letters and banner are Clarity Stamp

Now the next creation is something a little different for me. I was inspired by the gorgeous creation
by Rachel on Youtube. Now my mixed media creation may not come anywhere near as good as Rachel's but I really enjoyed making it and that's what it's all about for me. I think I am going to create a mixed media journal now that I am hooked.
I created the background by spraying Cosmic shimmer sprays and water. Added texture with white brilliance ink through sequin waste. I used texture paste through a stencil for the branches leaves and birds, then coloured them with twinkling H2Os and a touch of Creative expressions gilding wax. I stamped the girl in the moon stamp with black Versafine and coloured with T H2Os. The flower stamps are JOFY and Inkilicious (I think). The white were stamped & white embossed directly to the card but the JOFY were stamped onto parchment, coloured, cut out and stuck to the card. 

Well that's about it for today.
Hope you like what you've seen and I would love to hear your comments.

This one for Jonathan was designed using Serif Craft Artist Professional 2 and the "It's all about him" digi kit. He loves golf and photography.

Two pretty girls

Has a lovely weekend. Friday night out for a meal with my bessie mates which was lovely. Saturday night reunion with my workmates going back 26years. Sunday out to lunch with my son , daughter in law and her parents as an early celebration for their birthdays which are tomorrow. 

Now a couple of cards I made last week.
For the first one I dug out one of my older stamps, Elizabeth Bell I think, and coloured it with copics.
I used Spellbinder dies for the mats and Sue Wilson dies for the leaves and flowers

For the second one I used one of the Clarity stencils, stamps (dog) and Distress Inks. The background is an acrylic gelli plate print.

Well that's about it from me today.
Until the next time
