Hi there. Thanks for checking in. I have 3 cards to share today, and the first one will be entered into the Heart2Heart challenge for their Two Faced challenge. The requirement is to use both sides of a patterned paper.The hot air balloon, from the new CTMH Give a Lift stamp set, was paper pieced using patterned paper from the Balloon Ride paper pack. The flowers were coloured with Copics. Those took me a few delicate moments to cut out, but it was well worth the effort! I added a scalloped border to the blue background, and the shimmer tape to finish it off.
The next card was made with a stamp set that I really like, but have never found occasion to use. It’s such a shame when that happens!The chicken wire background was stamped directly onto the card surface. I then stamped, coloured and cut out the apple tree branches and fiddled with them until I liked the placement.
I saw this style of card in an old paper crafting magazine and thought I’d give it a go. I played up the country theme of the Jubilee patterned paper with the horse image from the Country Born stamp set. The lovely little gift tag sentiment is from the Made From Scratch stamp set.
So that’s it from my little basement studio this week. I will be back soon with more paper crafting fun. Have a great week!
