Well here I am. Yes I know I have been gone for a long time but I will try and make up for it. I had two workshops last week both using the same cards so here they are.
In this card I have used the flower stamp from the Eastern Blooms Set and stamped in in regal rose and rose red. I have then punched it out using the 5 petal flower punch and layered them on top of each other (I didn't come up with this great idea, I saw this nifty trick here http://www.marelletaylor.com/2009/01/not-me.html.). I then put a dimensional in the centre of the flower and dipped it in dazzling diamonds (also an idea from the talented Marelle http://www.marelletaylor.com/2007/12/bud-basics-bling.html.)
The branch with little flowers was coloured directly onto the rubber using chocolate chip, rose red and regal rose markers and stamped on whisper white CS and the small flower on the background has been stamped using versamark. The patterned paper is from Bali Breeze DSP in the Summer Mini. To get the sentiment just where I wanted it I used my Stamp-a-majig! (The curvy edge was made using a Creative Memories Curvy Cutter).
For this card I have again used markers to colour directly onto the rubber. The colours are Ruby Red, Old Olive and Cameo Coral and I have used the Summer Mini set Live Your Dream (which is one of the bushfire appeal sets). The sentiment is from the say it in scallops Summer Mini set which i have inked up in cameo coral the rolled the edges in ruby red. I then stamped the small butterfly from the Live Your Dream set in the corner in ruby red then punched it all out using the scalloped square punch. I have used Craft CS for my card base and used the scalloped edge punch to make a decorative edge. The Designer paper I used here is from the Ginger Blossom DSP pack (also in the Summer Mini).
Well I hope you liked these cards. Remember that there is only 4 more days to take advantage of Sale-A-bration so get your orders in to get your free sale set.
