Flowers on Parchment

I have used the no line technique for these 2 flowers on Parchment. The Rose has some added grid work and the Tulip a border traced in white and gold gel pens. Both flowers are coloured with Polychromas pencils and layered onto bright backing paper.

Stampin Up Demonstrator in training

I have just recently signed on as a SU demonstrator. How much actual demonstrating I will be doing is anyone's guess? I do like their products and as I am primarily a Parchment crafter it will be a challenge for me to incorporate them into my paper crafting. So to kick off I used the Lift me Up stamp set. Using VersaMagic Cloud White I stamped the large balloon onto translucent parchment paper. I left the ink to dry completely before I started dry embossing from the back. I did some perforating on the front to cut sections of the image away. Once that was done I embossed and pricked a couple of borders around it. A pretty simple card and quick by Parching standards. I have layered it on some shimmery navy blue card and then on rainbow paper and a navy card base.
The second card is a round easel card. Followed the same basic rules but added some colour to the back with oil pastel. I did no perforating on the balloon and added pencil colour lightly on the front. Using a product called Sticky Ink from Pergamano I added some glitter to the balloon. The textured background is from ParchCraft Australia.Well I hope you like the cards and will come back again soon to see what else I have managed to create.

Pink on Pink

This card was inspired by the latest Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine. White on white cards have been very popular recently. For this pink card I have used dies, double- sided adhesive paper and layered them all onto a card base . The first layer is a Stampin Up die, which I cut on pink card with double sided adhesive paper. I adhered the rose outline onto the pink card stock and the effect is very similar to an embossing folder. The next layer cut with a circle die with some swirls and flowers added to that. All the bits and pieces are then mounted with dimensional tape onto the base card. A sentiment can then be stamped and added as needed. Hope you like the effect of this card.

Fairy Flutter colour therapy

Happy New Year I do hope 2017 will be a good year.
Now the holidays are over time to get some colouring done. Norma Burnell's Fairy Flutters is just gorgeous. I printed her off on full size printer paper with the intention of just playing with colours. I got quite carried away and ended up colouring the whole page. This is the result.

Parchment Christmas cards

I did not make many Parchment Christmas cards this year, so this post will be short and sweet. Snowflakes were my main theme and I used a rubber stamp and templates for the images.

Ornaments and boxes

I have made some ornaments and little gift boxes for the little ones in our family. The ornaments are 3x3 mini canvas and the boxes I made from my stash of 12 x 12 Christmas paper stacks. I used 3D stickers, die cuts, ribbon and little embellishments for the ornaments
