Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.
I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years
|Card made for a 40th so adding numbers below.|
1. Added double sided tape to each of die cardstock. Remove to adhere.
2. Cut 3 for this a white a gold and brusho background.
3. Leave white in base it's cut from and place next two layers in place. This is particularly handy for holding shape of words.
4. Layered white gold on top of one another. Then placed brusho die cut a little to right to offset it and give a gold shadow to die cut.
|The desk shows a left over snippet of brushos with script background stamp. Cut in rectangular die then adding several layers of MB Lavish branch. With Sympathy die is Elizabeth Craft Designs i think?? I'd need of few sympathy cards so showing them below. Second card is Hero Arts background mosaic mask with Distress Oxides. All dies rectangular are extended. Xcut set, butterfly is MB. Two navy white card are ones I've made before. The stamp greeting set is sympathy one on my desk by Joanna. Inspired by Stamping.. not sure if still available? Bible verse is from early 1990s. A great comfort to those whose trust in Jesus.. we shall meet again.. in that heavenly home where all tears are wiped away... Blessed hope indeed!|
|And to close. A Birthday card for dear 86 yearold Iris in UK. It will be winging it's way tomorrow all being well! This is a glorious stamp. A Penny Black Trailing Vine. I've only had it a while and made several cards with it. Must replicate this for another friend. A close up below shows how the greeting is layered. Also Elizabeth Craft Designs. Coloured with Tombows and added shimmer.|
