It is my turn to show you some of my cards/creations using Sweet Pea Stamps.
Here is a card I have used using a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Concetta Kilmer. It is called "Mr and Mrs Christmas Sweets" and is available as a digital stamp or a single rubber stamp.
I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers, highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pens, inked around the edges with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint and Pine Needles distress ink and decided that both owls needed googly eyes. The backing papers I have given. I have used a square Marianne Designs die and cut this out and inked with Peeled Paint and Pine Needles distress ink. I have made two flowers using a patterned tissue paper and dies and held the layers together with some large brads. I have finished the card off with some Marianne Designs die-cut holly, the berries for the holly I used a Sizzix die as I wanted to 3D the berries and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
My second card uses an image by Joanne Schempp called "Guardian". It is an available as a digital stamp, single rubber stamp and as part of a multi-image plate (Sheet 11, Plate 228 - Guardian comes on the multi-image sheet with Excalibur, Kazimira and Wild Thing).
I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers. I then inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Gathered Twigs distress ink (thanks to a fellow Design Team member Aletha using this distress ink I thought I'd give it a go - I love it!!!). I then got a paint brush and wet around just over two sides of the card and then put on a bronze/gold effect Perfect Pearl powder to make it shine. The backing papers are from my beloved Tim Holtz paper pad my son bought me some years ago - the papers are disappearing at quite a fast rate now!!! I have finished the card off with my X-cut distressing tool pulling out strands of my cheesecloth material, spotty organza ribbon, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, gems. feathers and some wooden hearts I have distressed with Tim Holtz's Gathered Twigs distress ink.
My final card for this week uses an image by Elaine Cox called "Midnight Rose". This image is available as a digital stamp, single rubber stamp and as part of a multi-image plate (Sheet 17, Plate 106 - the image Midnight Rose comes on the multi-image plate with Stormy Moon, Celestia and Mariana).
I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers/Flexmarkers and added some sparkle with my clear Wink of Stella pen. The backing papers are from my Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD-Rom from Creative Crafting World and I have gone for a dusky pink and arctic blue colour scheme.
I have finished the card off with some raffia ribbon, gathered lace underneath the image, flowers die-cut from felt, pearl brads, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and some flat back pearls.
