Cute Birds

updated 17/03/2014:  Dimension Stamps have now changed their name to Nina Crafts.

All stamps used are from Dimension Stamps

For this car I used the 'Cut Birds' stamp set, I stamped them using Memento - Tuxedo Black and stamped again onto some patterned card and cut out to do some paper piecing.  The branches are made using the Spellbinders - Cherry Blossom die set, I just inked the middle of each flower before I removed it from the dies.  The background was inked using some Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass and a cut piece of card that I'd made into a cloud shape.  The background sky is matted onto some patterned card, one of those that you have in your stash and never know what to use it for lol.  The sentiment happy birthday is from the 'Grand Word Perfect' stamp set ref: 1803161a and the twitter and tweet are from the 'Teenage Dream' project club set ref: 2300060a, I stamped the text straight onto the sky background again using the Memento ink.  The little nests are made from a flower punch and just layered adding some of the green dew drops in the middle of each.

It's a Cracker

 I used the Crackerjack templates for this box of crackers from ArtyFarty Design, there are different sizes and shapes in the pack, so I picked the square ones, so they didn't roll away while on display lol.  I used some of my never ending peel offs for the edges of the crackers and I have some Christmas border stickers that I added to the ends, I think I got them from Create and Craft ages ago.  The lady in green has been stamped using the 'Love and Marriage' set of stamps ref: NC033, I stamped her again onto some Christmas tree paper and cut out her hat and coat, sticking them on using some PVA glue.  All the images have been stamped with VersaFine - Onyx Black and coloured using Pro/Flex Markers.  The man in the cracker was stamped using the 'Cracking Christmas' set ref: NC036 and the tree lady is from the 'Mullered Mavis' Christmas Party' ref: NC037.  I used a little bit of glitter on the tinsel and used a Sakura Glaze pen on all the spectacles, bottle, glass, baubles and stars etc.  I had a rummage in my ribbon drawer and found some matching ribbon and to finish off I made the box base to store them in.

Class Card - October 2013

updated 17/03/2014:  Dimension Stamps have now changed their name to Nina Crafts.

This is this month's Dimension Stamps class card, please excuse the photograph it's a bit rubbish, far too much shine from the pearlescent card.  I used the September Project Club set of stamps and the additional stamp for last month is the 'Joker', these extra stamps really do make your project club stamps go that little bit further.  Keep an eye out for details of these stamps on the website, the sentiment is from the 'Popular Phases' set ref: NC023.
I stamped using VersaMark and I used some detail copper embossing powder and coloured in using ProMakers.  I used a We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round the tops of the card.  The punched area is from an EK Success border punch, the gems and ribbon are from MeiFlower.

Sweet Hearts

Another 'Tufties in Love' card ref: NC026.  This time I used the little heart flourish as an arch adding some Spellbinder - Classic Scalloped Heart shapes on a bit of left over damask red card, I think it was a Kanban piece of card, but I just had a little strip of it left.  The pink flourish background card is from my stash, one of those pads with several patterns in three different colours.  I stamped the images and the sentiment using Memento- Tuxedo Black and coloured in with my Pro/Flex Markers.  To finish I added some little gems.

Give us a kiss Deer

The background paper on this card is again from Rita I just added some glitter.  I used my EK Tools Circle Cutter for the circle and stamped the couple from the 'Love and Marriage under the Mistletoe' set of stamps ref: NC038.  I stamped the image using VersaFine - Onyx Black and heat embossed with some detail clear embossing powder.  I coloured in using my Pro/Flex Markers and added some glitter to the white trim on the dress and hat.  I used one of my Joanna Sheen Signature Dies - Lace Edger 2 on some white card leaving enough room to add the ribbon, which is red velvet.  To finish I added some gems to the corners from MeiFlower.
