A Tattered Floral creation

This gorgeous card was created by my good friend and valued DT member Jane, it was made for a close friend of hers (lucky lady)
I just love it and thought you would too.

products used
Sizzix tattered florals die
Spellbinders Leaves die
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
distress inks crushed olive, peeled paint and brushed corduroy
momento ink lulu lavender and grape jelly
inkadinkado dot flourish clear stamp
card stock purple hammer, silver mirror board, lilac and white plain.
silver embossing powder
large brads.

Jane stamped up and embossed the dot flourish, before cutting out the tattered florals, which she then accented with the momento inks.
The leaves were cut using the wizard cutting and embossing die , these too were given the distress ink treatment to pick up the embossed veins.
The flowers and leaves were layer using silicone glue.

Jane has made a box to accommodate the card as the flower is deep, the box is made to compliment the design by stamping the same flourish and adding a simple flower also cut from the Tattered florals die.

This a view just to show you the detail and depth of the flower, fab isn't it.
All the products used are available from me here at Crafty Urchins.
Hope you enjoyed looking Sue.

Fairy Manga

Good morning everyone another card today from Tina, she's been a busy bee.

For this pretty card the stamp she's used is Fairy Manga from Sugar Nellie. Tina doesn't usually work in pastel colours so this card is a change for her.

The image has been mounted on a large round and scalloped Nesties, small Nesties have been used in the mounted sentiment which is from personal expressions.

Small crystals have been placed evenly spaced around inner circle.

A Dovecraft punch was used for the yellow stars with blue star buttons from her stash.

Blue star paper, yellow and mirri card available from shop as well as other items mentioned

As usual Tina has coloured the image in with her promarkers, in the following colours.

Hair: Buttercup,pastel yellow, yellow and gold.

Skin: Ivory, Blush and pale pink chalk applied with cotton bud on cheeks.

Dress, bow and shoes: powder blue, pastel blue, pearl blue and Denim blue.

Wings, stars and wand; Three layers of Stardust Stickles letting it dry in between each one.

Accented shadow around image: Cool grey 1.

Tina used very fine net to make a bow around bottom of card. she covered it with stickles to give a sparkly effect, a large crystal has been placed in the bottom left hand corner. Thanks for looking i do appreciate it, back soon Sue..........X

Lost Garden

Morning all... Hope you are all still enjoying the sun shine, although it does make the weeds in my garden grow faster than the flowers for some reason lol.
Finally found chance to post the card I made using my latest fav stamp, create a scene, lost garden. I just loved the images when I saw them.
Check out the little added extra at the end.XX

Products used were,
white and olive card stock
sentiment hero arts
distress paint rock candy

Promarkers used were.
statue and arch, cool greys 1,2 ,3 5,
foliage pear and olive green
flowers antique pink, ruby.

A close of this lovely statue after she had been cut out and covered with a liberal coating of rock candy distress paint

My 7 year old son's asked me to post this for you to look at. It is all his own work, from the promarking to the cutting out and 3d-ing.

And this is the cheeky chappie responsible for the creation above
