Two more cards to show....f

Hi all

Happy weekend to you - I for one am so relieved to have 2 days off as been a tiring week for me.  

I have two cards to show you this time (for a change lol) - well i did say there would be more to come!

The first one to show is one for a man (have several of these to make).  The stamp comes from Cuddly Buddly, a new range of steampunk stamps. I love them.  I stamped it using white stazon ink.  I highlighted various areas using a white poly and a gold prisma, tore round the image, wiped a gold ink pad round the edge before mounting it onto another piece of green card.  I then mounted it onto a kraft card blank.  I stamped the greeting using the gold inkpad onto the green backing card.  That's it for the male card and here are the pics.

This has been entered into the following challenges

Now for the other card lol.  I have used this stamp on a few cards now cos I just love it and its versatility.  It is the winter scene by stampendous.  This time I coloured it using muted browns and used glitter for the snow instead of flower soft.  I think I prefer it actually.  I mounted it onto a plum coloured backing card, stamped the sentiment to the side and mounted it onto another kraft card blank.  Now for the pics.....

That's it for today - I think!

Hugz to all and do hope you will back again sometime

  6. I think the Santa sleigh card has a great masculine feel. This Steampunk look makes it different, and I really like it!
    Your Christmas cottage card is beautigul with all that glitter and I think the stamped postcard background is an excellent choice for this vintage style design.
