Memory Box Chloe Stem less is more card

I made this card for a friend who normally gets one of my heavily stamped cards, so this is a bit of a change. The message is done on the computer. I cut the die from the card base, then put a deep burgundy piece of card behind the aperture. The cut out was mounted on very fine strips of 3d foam and slightly off-set over the aperture. I added a few gems for a bit of bling.

Stampendous Ranunculus birthday card

I've made this birthday card by making a splodgy watercolour background by scribbling on to an acrylic block with Whispers pens, then spraying the block and watercolour paper lightly with water. I saw this simple technique on Ellie Knol's wonderful blog here. She makes so many wonderful cards using this stamp.

I've added a few sprinkles of Frantage embossing powders for a little texture and glitter.

Baptism card


I've made a similar card before, using the same card border created with Serif Craft Artist and a vintage Hero Arts background stamp. This time, instead of using a small metal cross charm, I have used a die cut cross from a Shapeabilities Crosses Two set.

More brush stroke cards

These are great cards for folk who like a clean and simple look, or when time is short, and the sentiment can be changed to fit pretty much any occasion.

This first one was used as a Mother's Day card.

This was a birthday card for a man.

This was a card for a girlfriend.

All of the cards used chalk inks and the My Favorite Things Abstract Art stamp set. The sentiments are all Hero Arts.
