Hi all sorry I haven’t been blogging again lately. I have been busy in the world of crafting though making lots of cards and Jewellery etc for orders and my charity stall. You can find some of the things I have been making the past month on my Facebook Page.
Today I would like to share with you a card I have been making yesterday and this morning.
The post title is called ‘a few firsts’ this is because I have used a few items for the first time on this card.
The first ‘first’ is I have coloured this beautiful digi-stamp from Sherri Baldy. It’s the first of her digi-stamps I have colured and I am pleased with the result. I just love these big eye characters.
Of course I have used my Spectrum Noir Pens to colour the image.
The Colours I used are:
FS2, FS6, TN2, PP2, PP3, PP4, PP5, IB1, IB2, IB3, IG1, IG2, IG3, IG6 and the Blender Pen.
Here’s the full card. I’m loving how it has turned out.
Right then for the second ‘first’ I have used the Joy Winter Wishes Border and larger snowflake (2020) dies along with Dee’s Distinctively Snow Covered Stacker Tree Die.
Now the third ‘first’ is that I have used Fran-tage by Stampendous for the first time. I’ve got to say I think I can see myself getting addicted to this!! I just love the effect it has. I have used it on the die cuts as well as adding details to the topper and metal corner embelishments.
