Birthday Card for Caz

I loved making this card for my daughter Caz’z birthday; I used an indigo blu stamp for the main image then stamped lots of small stamps for the background in various distress ink, overlapping them to get this look.  All of the small stamps were ‘free’ from my monthly Stamper Mag.  I re-stamped 2 of the images and added sticky fixers to give them a bit of height.  Then mat and layered the topper onto a deep pink and green card stock, added a bit of glitter to her bodice and a couple of ring marks, job done. 

Card used; white smooth cardstock,  deep pink & green cardstock
Stamps; Indigo Blu + various small stamps
Mask; Sam Poole  squares
Copic Pens; various colours
Distress Ink Pads; various

Would love a comment as I do read them all.

New Design

Anyone who has regularly looked at my blog will know that I love Sam Poole’s style.  When Sam created some new stamps I just had to have them. 

I’ve made the following 2 cards using the Doodle Butterfly stamp set.  Pretty much used the same design as Sam with a little twist. For the Butterfly I stamped it on vellum and embossed it with detailed white embossing powder.  

Card used; Crafters Companion Neenah
Stamps; Sam Poole Doodle Butterfly
Gold embossing powder from Clarity
