A bit of sparkle today.

I made the scalloped layers with Hobbycraft 'Duck Egg' and 'Dark Duck Egg' glitter card, using Lisa Horton's 'Scallop Layered Rectangles' dies. The flower is a Memory Box 'Fuchsia Sprig' die cut. I used a Lisa Horton's 'Padded Quilt' embossing folder to add some texture to the top layer. A layered sentiment finished off my card.

Two cards to share today, following a sketch in a Facebook group I'm part of.  The group is called 'Creative Minds II Kind Hearts' which is a place for sharing papercraft creations.  There are regular sketches and fancy folds to try, as well as card swaps and lots of other inspiration. It's a lovely group to be part of, so if you are on Facebook and want to join the group, pop over to the 'Creative Minds II Kind Hearts' page and answer a couple of joining questions... don't forget to say that I sent you. 😉 It would be lovely to see you there.

Although my favourite colour is purple, I do love making blue and white cards. All the patterned paper was snippets, I think from an old Papermania paper pad and I hand cut the ends of the banners. The circles were die cut with Spellbinder dies and the white circle embossed with a Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' e/f.  I raised the layered circle up with foam pads.  A sentiment and three pearls finished off my card.  All the paper and card, apart from the card blank, was snippets so I'll be sharing my card over in The Playground.

My second card is following the same sketch and I thought the papers from The Range would be suitable for a masculine card.

Make a Wish

A birthday card today.

The silhouette stamp is Lavinia 'Fairytale' stamped with Versafine Clair 'Nocturne' and layered on Memory Box 'Stitched Square Layers' die cuts.  The background was embossed with a Embossalicious 'Make a wish' e/f and the sentiment is a stamp from the Stampin' Up 'Best Year' set.  The layered sentiment is raised up on foam pads. I added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen over the fairy's wings and the flowers in her hair, although it doesn't show up very well in the photo.  Three sparkly green gems finished off my card.

Stitched Penguin

Using one of my favourite dies again today as I love including cross-stitching on my cards.  This die is actually the tag die I used for one of the cards in my last post.  This time I cut off the top of the tag to make it into a rectangle so I could make a Double Z Fold card.  This card will be going later in the year to a friend who loves penguins.

I used a MFT 'Cross-Stitch Tag' die and the cross-stitching was done with crochet cotton.  The embossing folder Sheena Douglass' - 'Water Ripples'.  The patterned paper was an odd sheet from my stash.
