Pansy Window

Friday, October 30, 2015

This is a tricky card to photograph so I hope you can see well enough the window effect.  It's really nice to have a sentiment that can be for both the front of the card as well as inside.

Fiona's notes: I like how the pansy on the right isn't confined to the edge of the card.  In the same way I like that they encroach on the window.  Who said a card has to have square lines?!

Thinking of you twice

Friday, October 23, 2015

My poor father, he's at an age now when he is sending more sympathy cards than any other type of card.  He asked if I could make some for him that weren't too sombre.  I found a lovely design by Michelle Last and knew he'd love it.  Thanks for the inspiration, Michelle!

Fiona's notes: The Calypso Coral isn't actually as vibrant as looks in the photo, it came out almost fluro didn't it?

A little flowery love never did anyone any harm!

Simple Baby Elephant

Not all cards need sentiments.  Here's a pretty example of a card that needs no words.

Fiona's notes:  Wavy scissors make a good replacement for the scalloped edge punch if you 
don't have it.

Card Challenge

Wreath panel

Friday, October 02, 2015

Every year I make a range of cards to sell which are different to the ones I personally send my friends and family.  I really love how the sentiment turned out so that the "merry" comes up almost gold looking.  Gotta have a bit of elegant sparkle at Christmas!

I also made matching tags this year.  Bit of fun!

Blog challenge: This week Stamp Ink Paper's challenge is "Card Maker's Choice" and I've entered this card.  Go take a look at some of the other great work people have entered. 

Fiona's notes: I quite like that the wreath stamp isn't perfectly round.  What proper wreath ever is?
