A Nature Lover’s Card

Masculine cards are can be so hard.  This one started out being in “manly” natural colours, however I think it would work equally well for a female, providing of course that whoever receives it like nature!

A pale celery green cardbase has been matted with a mocha layer and the top layer is white.   The white layer has been stamped with soft colours of green, light blue, brown and oranges. 

Stamp sets used are Stampin Ups Work of Art (for the background paint effect in a chequerboard effect with pale blue and green),   French Foliage (for the leaves in oranges, script in sepia, date stamp in blue and ink splatters in dark green) and Nature Walk (for the bird in dark brown).  

The whole effect is kind of journali-ish and vintage.

The Perfect Card for a Pilot

Do you know an aviation lover?  Perhaps an aspiring pilot?  This is another simple card but very effective.    

A white card base has been matted with sky blue and a white card front has been cut a little smaller than usual to use that blue background.   Getting three graduated blues, the Work of Art triple swish stamp has been stamped once in each colour,  each one just touching the next to blend.   When dry a plane from a set called, I think, Flying High by Sullivans was stamped in black stazon ink.

Happy flying!

A Girlie Just for You

A quick card using the versatile Work of Art set by Stampin Up.   On a pink cardstock base a white card front was stamped just using the long line stamp in different colours and matching some sequins to it works a treat.   

 Easy Peasy :)
