Today I am sharing the last of my cards featuring the gorgeous Sylvia Zet images from SCACD Stamps!  Well, I say the last of them, when really I mean the last of this batch.  These cuties will most definitely be in use again and again.

Sylvia Zet for SCACD stamps are available NOW in the US from Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design and in the UK/Europe from Quixotic Paperie.

The image I’ve used on today’s card is Princess.  Such a sweetie!

Coloured with Copic Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card (this image was coloured a few weeks ago, so sorry, no colour info).  Papers are My Mind’s Eye 6×6 A Beautiful Life.  The bow was tied using the Bow-Easy template, and those yummy chipboard swirls are from a Make it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard pack – I covered them in gold glitter pen.  The sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamps Party Mini Letter Seals set.

The image was coloured with Copic Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card.  Papers are My Mind’s Eye 6×6 – Dwell.  The sentiments were stamped using Whimsy Stamps – Everyday Mini Postage Sentiments stamps and cut out using the coordinating Shapeology Mini Postage Die.  The bow was tied using the Bow-Easy template.  Those gorgeous chipboard corners are from the Make it Crafty Butterfly Swirls lasercut chipboard pack.  I covered them with crackle paint, and they look gorgeous – here’s a close up:

Elegant 30th Birthday Card www.quixoticcards.com

30th Birthday

It was Paul’s sister’s 30th Birthday this week, so of course, I made a special card for her.  When I made this one, my colouring abilities had taken a bit of a break (seriously, I tried to colour several images, and they all ended up in the bin), so I went with an elegant design using papers, dies and chipboard!

I made an easel card, as they always look so effective for special cards – they are such a pain to photograph well though, so this definitely looks better when viewed in person!

Elegant 30th Birthday Card www.quixoticcards.com

The gorgeous papers are My Mind’s Eye Meadowlark.  Unfortunately I don’t have this 12×12 pack in stock any more, but there is a gorgeous 6×6 Meadowlark pad.  Love the elegance of the papers.

The numbers are from my stash of chipboard alphas and numbers.  The ribbon slider is from the Make it Crafty Fancy Ribbon sliders pack, and the rest of the chipboard is from the Make it Crafty Butterfly Leaves lasercut chipboard pack.  This is definitely one of my favourite packs!  I painted all of the chipboard with silver acrylic paint, then when dry, covered it with Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy (clear).

I created the sentiment on the bottom panel using a mixture of clear stamps.  I LOVE clear stamps for sentiments, they make it so easy to mix ‘n match and get everything lined up first time.  I used Waltzing Mouse Stamps “Fancy Phrases” and Flourishes LLC “Fight Like A Girl”.  The dies I used are Magnolia DooHickey.

Hope you’re having a great weekend so far!

Hope with Silver Fairy

You may have heard that some of Sylvia Zet’s “Wee Stamps” digital images have now been released in yummy rubber by Whimsy Stamps.  They are available in the UK, at Quixotic Paperie in the Whimsy Stamps section!

Today I have a card to share featuring one of the new stamps – Silver Fairy – she’s one of my favourites.

Hope You Can Cling To - Splitcoast Stampers

I actually created this card for a challenge on Splitcoast Stampers, being hosted by the lovely Bev Gerard.  The challenge is “Looking In On You!” and Bev has asked us to to create a “window” card as part of the Hope You Can Cling To event that is going on this month in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.  Here’s a link to the Looking In On You challenge thread – SCS: Hope You Can Cling To – Looking In On You – pop over and check it out!

The yummy designer papers are Marianne Designs “In The Meadow”.  The chipboard is from the Make it Crafty Butterfly Leaves pack.  The “Hope” sentiment is from the Flourishes LLC “Fight Like a Girl” stamp set.  I also used the Whimsy Stamps Lavish Flourishes set to lightly ink the edges of the heart tag and image layer.  The card opens out to reveal a heart shaped layer for a message behind the main image.

All colouring was done with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card (see colour map below).
