80th Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

Here is a card I have made for a friend's Mum who is having an 80th birthday in August, as they use to have Friesian cows on their farm, I've found a lovely photo of a black and white friesian and made it into an easel card, with lots of flowers and butterflies. 
A lovely sentiment by Susan Wheeler from her Holly Pond Hill collection completes the card.

The butterflies I left in the dies and added versa colour ink through the die to add extra colour.  The window shape I cut on my Silhouette Cameo then cut down the centre to open it, as usual for me lots of Star Dust stickles.

My friend was really pleased with the card, I hope her Mum will be too!

Black and Circle - "Carnevale"

Hello everyone,

I hope that you are well and enjoying a little sunshine.

I have a new project to share for

 Reve 2 Scrap - the criteria was Black & Circle - here is my interpretation!

I don't usually 'do' black so it was a challenge for me,
 I cut the black shape on my Silhouette Cameo and it was a little to large for a card, so I have put it onto a canvas board to hang or stand on a shelf, again this is a little different for me!
Note to myself: must try different things sometimes ha, ha..

I have used Aurora Wings Carnevale image which was a pleasure to colour with Copics.

Materials used:-

Kaiser Craft card stock,
X-press it Blender card,
Copic markers,
Kaiser craft Flowers,
8x8 Canvas board,
Spellbinders Grand Circles,
Spellbinders Venetian Motifs, 
Scrapmatts sentiment,
lots and lots of Wink of Stella (clear)

I am entering this in:

Until next time, take care & happy crafting
