Lemon Lime Twist Meets Night Of Navy!

Hi Everyone,

For those who do not follow my Facebook Page, i am sorry there was know tutorial yesterday as i was poorly. I woke up with a terrible Migraine and could not get rid of it. I think it was the heat that caused it. Us British are not used to the heat.

Anyway, today i have a lovely card for you. I have been playing with some of the new In colours. I love Lemon Lime Twist and have seen that it goes really well with Night of Navy.
What do you think ????

I love it!!

For this card i cut a piece of Whisper White to 11" x 4 1/2"

Then i cut a piece of Night Of Navy to 4 1/8" x 5 1/8"

The last piece of whisper white was cut to 4" x 5"

Using Touches of texture i stamped the large speckle stamp 3 times with Lemon Lime Twist Ink.
With the stamp set Vertical Greetings i stamped Thank you in the right hand corner with Night of Navy.

From Night of navy card i cut the flourish and small flower from the Flourish Thinlit dies.

I added some rhinestones to finish.

I really quick and simple card but i think it looks really pretty!

Thank you

 Bye for now

Water Colour Card Using Touches Of Texture

Hi Everyone,

I am back today with a simple but beautiful card.

I love Touches of texture stamp set. You get loads of stamps with this set and you can really create fantastic looking cards in minutes. I hope you like the one i have today.

I used a card base of Basic grey measuring 4 1/8" x 11" scored @ 5 1/2"

My card front was water colour card and measured 4" x 5 3/8"

Using Blushing bride ink i applied some colour using a water colour brush.

Again using Blushing bride i stamped the large speckle stamp from Touches of texture. I also stamped off and applied that around the card front.

Using black memento Ink i stamped 2 of the flowers. I coloured them in with Stampin write markers in Rose red, Flirty Flamingo, Pear pizzazz and Daffodil delight.

The sentiment is from Garden in bloom and that was stamped in Rose Red. I added a few Rhinestones to finish.

I hope you like it.

Please pop by tomorrow as i have a fantastic tutorial for you!!

Thank you

 Bye for now

Touches Of Texture Heat Embossed Card

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for popping over to my blog today.

I said yesterday that i would be back again today with another card & here i am!  Today's card is made using the beautiful Touches of Texture Stamp set. This is a new set for me as i only got it last week.  I really don't know why i waited this long to buy it! It really is beautiful and you get 2 cases of stamps.

I hope you like the card that i made for you today :-)

My card base is Night of Navy and i used Very Vanilla for my card front.

The Night of Navy measures 4 1/8" x 11 1/2"  Scored @ 5 1/2"

The very vanilla measures 3 7/8" x 5 1/4"

I stamped my large stem and flower first with night of navy ink. Using some versamark i stamped 2 of the branches at either side of the flower. I heat embossed the them with silver embossing powder.
Again using Versamark i stamped the large speckles at the top of the card and heat embossed with silver powder.
My sentiment is from Watercolour wings and i used Night of navy for that.
I added a retired button to the middle of the flower, really simple but very pretty!

I hope you like my card and will give it a go yourself.

I will be back tomorrow with another project.

Thank you

 Bye for now
