Serene Garden

For today's card I have used the Serene Garden Stamp Set and the Garden Scene Framelits, I started with my base card being Basic Black, then my first mat is Blackberry Bliss, my second mat is Whisper White. With my Whisper White piece I used the corner embossing piece from Garden Scene Framelits and embossed the bottom left hand corner, I then took the corner framelit piece and cut it out directly over the embossing. What happens when you do this is it cuts out the leaves and reveals your under colour. I then stamped the leaf corner in the top left and bottom right corner in Blackberry Bliss Ink. I then stamped the bird, butterfly and the flowers in Memento Black, cut them out with the matching framelits and coloured them with my Blends Alcohol Markers adding some Wink of Stella Clear. Finally I added my sentiment just under my bird and to the right of the card.

Lovely As A Tree Male Card

Hi Everyone, I just had to do one more card using the Lovely As A Tree stamp set. I absolutely love this stamp set and have Utube Tutorials over on my Utube Channel using this stamp set so please take the time to check it out and why not subscribe to my channel so you don't miss any of my tutorials.

With this card the base card is Crumb Cake, then I embossed a piece of Sahara Sand with the Woodlands Embossing Folder so there would be some texture around the sides of my card. I then cut a piece of Basic Black so I could have a very fine border around the image and then on my piece of Shimmery White I sponged it in Sahara Sand and stamped my trees with Sahara Sand and Always Artichoke Ink Pads. Also I cut out a 1-1/2" circle with my circle punch with a piece of Eclipse Masking Tape and this was my mask for my moon. Finally adding a sentiment and my card is done.

Best Catch

Today's card I have used the stamp set Best Catch, I have made a mask for the moon with my 1-1/2" circle punch. Then sponged the background beach scene using some stamping sponges and my ink pads. Then I stamped the two images and removed my mask for the moon and stamped my sentiment. To get the seamless look with your sponging you must use a slow circular motion, and just add small amounts of ink and build up the colour until you are happy with it. I also adhered the front panel to my card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Best Catch

I am so excited to show you this card today using the new stamp set bundle available from 3rd January,2019 "Best Catch Bundle". This is going to be a great bundle for my male cards. I started by stamping all my images, then coloured them with my Stampin' Blends and Ink Pads. Then I embossed a piece of Sahara Sand with the embossing folder Pinewood Planks. I then positioned all my pieces before adhering them to my card to create a scene, to see where I would like them to be. I then adhered some pieces with glue and most of them with Stampin' Dimensionals so everything would pop off the page.
