Wendy's card uses a product that has never been available in Australia but I really like the way the foliage creeps out from the edges of the window so I set out to create my own version!

This background was perhaps a little busy but I wanted to do something a little different!
Deciding to use another of my Brusho backgrounds on Glossy White cardstock, I first embossed it with the Leaves folder.  Then, after wiping it well with my Embossing Buddy, I gently swiped my Versamark pad across the embossed surface, added Copper embossing powder and heat set.

I cut a window in the front of my Night of Navy base card using the largest of the Lots of Labels framelits and then cut some Night of Navy leaves with one of the dies in the Eclectic Layers set and adhered them to the card - tucking them between the card front and the Brusho layer.

The greeting from the Petal Palette stamp set is stamped with Tempting Turquoise ink and cut with one of the Petals & More dies.  I added some Clear Faceted Gems to add a bit of sparkle.

The butterflies were cut with one of the Move Me dies.  I stamped them with Tempting Turquoise ink and one of the Background Bits stamps then edged them with a Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Write Marker and coloured their antennae with a black marker.

A piece of Whisper White cardstock covers up the back of the inky paper  and creates plenty of space to write!

Card for a fisherman

This card is entered into the Crazy Crafters Team Highlights.  Click here to see the full line up of projects and vote for your favourites.

This card is for a fellow who loves to spend time in his boat, hanging a fishing line into the water!  I did toy with the idea of adding a fishing line and hook but decided it would complicate the design too much!

For the purposes of this card, he's fishing from the other side of the boat!

A card for a man who likes to go out in his boat and fish!
The base card is made from Thick Whisper White and the layer of Marina Mist is embossed with the Seaside embossing folder.

The anchor is silver heat embossed and the Tangerine Tango fish have black sequin eyes.  The sea vegetation is cut from Island Indigo cardstock using a die from the Petals & More Thinlits set and offcuts from one of the Swirly Scribbles dies.

I trimmed a little bit of the Burlap Ribbon to attach to the anchor and fluffed out small pieces of the Copper Trim to glue to the bottom of the card, brightened with a scattering of small gold sequins.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!

Brusho Myths & Magic

This Brusho background sort of rose up in the middle while it was still wet and resulted in those sweeps of blue that reminded me of a wave.  So I fussy cut some mermaids from a sheet of Myths & Magic Designer Series Paper.

This Brusho background reminded me of a wave - so I added mermaids!
The base card is Night of Navy and then I picked up the pink in the background with a layer of Powder Pink cardstock and the Brusho layer is sitting on another piece of the Myths & Magic paper.

I trimmed down the Lots of Labels die cut to better fit the card shape and tapped the sentiment stamp onto a Lemon Lime Twist ink pad before using a sponge dauber to add some Bermuda Bay ink to the bottom of the stamp.

Thank you for visiting.

Petal Passion Stripes

I love the bold contrast of colours in this card and the simplicity.
#thecraftythinker, #stampinup, #cardmaking, simple card, Petal Passion Memories & More, Black White & Red card, Stampin' Up! Australia Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
The Petal Passion Suite is so elegant and easy to use!
The base card is Real Red cardstock, followed by a layer of striped paper from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper pack.  Another layer of Real Red frames the pretty, leafy card from the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack.

The label in the centre is a sticker that's included in the Memories & More pack and I stamped a greeting from Butterfly Basics in Real Red ink.

Cards don't get much quicker or easier than this, I think, but it's still very effective!

Thank you for visiting.

Petal Passion Blossom

The Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack is great value - I'll be using it to make cards for a LONG time to come!  And they're so handy when you realise you've forgotten an event and need a card in a hurry!
#thecraftythinker, #cardmaking, #easycard, #stampinup, Petal Passion Memories & More, Black & White card, Stampin' Up! Australia Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
The combination of Black, White and Red is always dramatic
This is simply layers of Petal Passion Designer Series Paper, Whisper White cardstock and Petal Passion Memories & More card.

The greeting is from Butterfly Basics and is stamped with Real Red ink.

The little flower is two layers of Real Red cardstock punched with the Blossom Builder punch, curled with a bone folder with a Faceted Gem centre.

I used a Smoky Slate Stampin' Blend alcohol marker to add a little definition to the Smoky Slate foliage that was punched out with the Leaf punch.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
