Good afternoon, and I hope you might have enjoyed some sunshine last week? We have had the most glorious sunny week here in Surrey and the Autumn leaf colour has been spectacular. It really does inspire my making.
Today I am sharing a slimline card and bookmark.
I worked with the Free Your Imagination stamp set, using every stamp in this awesome set:
I added some stenciling using the Lava stencil
and some background stamping with some of the uber useful stamps in Universal. If you don’t have this in your background stamps stash it really is one to have!
This is what I got up to..
I used one of my A5 size distress re-inker shaving foam backgrounds from my stash and then added the gorgeous new Villainous Potion distress ink through the stencil.
From the card I cut a piece for a slimline card and a bookmark.
I stamped the bird in black Versafine ink and clear heat embossed.
I then added gold heat embossed swirls and stars using the Universal set. I also stamped some of the double rings in the set using red ink. This gave the backgrounds lots of texture and depth.
I stamped the books in blue and also for just the card the open part in grey ink and cut them out.
I also stamped and white embossed the feathers on black card, seen below, and some of the potion pots and the sentiment (seen in the final photos.) I cut everything out, adding some gold ink to the pots and a black mat to the sentiments.
Then it was time to put my designs together.
Here is the finished card.
and the bookmark.
and one final shot.
I really enjoyed making these and creating a card with a matching bookmark always makes such a unique gift.
You will find me on Instagram @jane.tyrrell where I share more inspiration.
Bye for now,
Wow these are stunning! Such a fabulous background, so much to discover and the focal images look so striking! Thank you Jane ♡
