My Makes

I have been having a little play with some of the new things I have bought from my numerous craft buys lately.  Altnew has some gorgeous stamps that you can layer to get some fantastic effects. I have bought a few of these sets, and haven’t used all of them yet, but this one called Garden Hydrangea is a favourite.





I made this card for my Aunt for her Birthday. She also told me she loves the colour blue, I thought she did, and I’m glad she does, I do too.


Couture creations has some fabulous embossing powders that have glitter in them as well as some vibrant colours, so I used this to colour and embossed the FOR YOU sentiment on the card.  I also embossed the middles of the flowers with a holographic embossing powder and embossed the vellum Hydrangea with white embossing powder. Great effects.

This is the stamp set I used from Altenew called Garden Hydrangea, a fantastic set of layering stamps.  Love this set.


Another card i made this month was a Valentine Day Card for my Gorgeous Husband.


I made this using a stamp set from Unity Stamps, the sentiment is from the Lighthouse set from Altenew, stickers from Hero Arts.  The Background was created by me using Tim Holtz distress inks, and cut with dies from MFT.  I coloured with distress inks also. I embossed with a clear embossing powder.


This is the stamp set from Unity stamps.

I love to create and these are just a couple of items I really enjoyed this month. I hope you like them as well.  Until next time…



Some of the first cards I made in June of 2016, when I started to seriously enjoy this Great Craft.

FishElizabeth Craft Black Stickers ‘Koi fish and Flowers’ stuck onto acetate and coloured with Sakura Glace Pens.  They are then put onto white embossed card with 2mm foam tabs. The white embossed card (Background card) is coloured with a metallic blue rub on.  All layered onto a dark blue card, to frame the finished product.

Fish Happy BirthdayThis card is also made in the same way as the one above but the Blue Fish sticker has been put onto Adhesive Glitter foil first, then applied to the acetate and coloured with the Sakura Glace Pens.  An all occasion sticker is used in the centre for the sentiment.

My first try at colouring with the Sakura Glace Pens on acetate.  I love this technique and you will see more of this on future cards.
