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 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Red Black and white

Well, orders can be very specific at times, and so here is another quick post.
The request was a birthday card in black and white with a large splash of red for her granddaughter!! So I made this one here, with the red background, mounted on white cardstock.
The floral stamps are from "Wildflower Sprigs" by Stampendous (clear stamps). Lovely aren't they and quite versatile, too.
The butterfly stamp is part of a set from Victorine Originals (US).
The swirls stamped image is from "Wild Daisy Rd" set Heidi Grace Clear Stamps by Fiskars, it is bordered by the Taylor Eyelet Border die to make the edges to the bottom panel. A black and white spot ribbon with my Bow-easy making the bow. I have yet to master that Bow-easy!! A few diamantes in red and pearls to finish it off! (Note to self: to get some black bling.)
Have to get onto another order, a 60th again!! God bless and happy crafting!

A very striking and stunning card. Shows how effective a limited palette of colours can be.

You are so right Maggie, I would not have thought of doing this card without the colour palette choice, there you are! hope it is starting to warm up over there!

I have been having a good look around this morning and my last comment was for your brayered cards ...I may have posted it on this one cos I was too eager to get here! I adore this and have a stamp very much like the one you have used the colours and wonder if you would mind if I made it ....if it's ok with you I will, of course, link back to you with a credit....

I actually figured that on the Brayer comment when I read it Eileen :) and by all means go ahead and make the card I would be very honoured that you did so! you are such a great crafter and to honest there is nothing I like better than sharing (half way around the world)!
Love Shaz.x
