Good Evening! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration from Jane Tyrrell…
It’s another marvelous Monday and time for my weekly dose of Visible Image inspiration.
The next “event” in my card making is Mother’s day, which falls here in the UK on Sunday 11 March. I needed to make some cards for selling at Dotty’s tea house and decided to use the top line of the brilliant “Mother” definition stamp in my designs.
(Next week I will be sharing another card where I have used the whole of this stamp…watch this space)
I also wanted to use some specific words from the Written in the Stars
collection. I used words from the Aries, Cancer and Pisces set but you could easily chose any… I think it is lovely to be able to be so personal.
I stamped and embossed them in white on black card and then fussy cut them out.
The warmer weather made me also reach for my more summery stamps and 2 sets which I have not used for a while. The original butterfly was a very early Visible Image stamp I bought many years ago and is now part of this fab set.
I made my design in 2 colourways and it is interesting to see how different they look.
I used red and blue distress inks for this colour way with some stenciling using purple.
and for a “hot version” I used yellows and oranges. This was my background mid way..
I then added some red distress through the fibres stencil to really spice it up.
Here is my “sunny” version which I also added a few sequins to…
They look so different don’t they?
Here are a few close ups..
You can mix and match the extra words..
and a last shot of them side by side..
It will be interesting to see which colourway sells first in Dotty’s!
Next week I will share some more Mothers’ day card ideas using a different set of Visible Image stamps.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me. Despite my sunny cards it looks as though the weather is returning to winter this week… brrr it has been so cold and there may even some snow in the south of England. Keep snug wherever you are.
Bye for now,
These cards are absolutely stunning Jane! Your stencilled backgrounds are fabulous and our butterflies look wonderful. Perfect choice of words too.. thank you ♡
