Fleeting summer days

Well, it seems that before it even really began, summer is almost done!  I hope you are all enjoying these last few weeks before back to school and autumn tasks pay a visit.  I've got a big school deadline to meet by September 1st (eek, not too many more days) but then after that I'll have more free time, so I'm hoping the sunshine will stick around for a while after that.  I'm looking forward to catching up with some of you then.  In the meanwhile, I have managed to put together some cards using the images I coloured while listening to my online lectures....got to love multi tasking!
Here are two cheery flowery ones, both featuring images from Heartfelt Creations.



Products Used on This Project 

 Other products used: Spica glitter pens, liquid pearls, Stickles, organza ribbon Copics used:  E43, E41, E40, V14, V17
Fold card in half, and stamp the basket image so that it overlaps the fold -- that is, goes off the edge.  The goal is to create a crease that is uncut.  Use coordinating die cut to cut the image out--so you are cutting through both the top and the bottom layer, and the crease is on the inside of the die cut.  The result is a card with a crease at the top and the whole card, front and back, is shaped like the die cut. Then colour the basket, use Spica glitter pens over the scroll design, and add liquid pearls over the circle dots in the image.  Colour the flowers.  Stamp the image a second time on another piece of paepr and cut out the flowers, colour and add glitter to edges.  Adhere over the flowers on the card.  Tie ribbon in a bow over the edge as shown.


Products Used on This Project 

Other Products used: Copics (G40,YG63, V09, V15, V17, Y06, Y08), brads
Cut base card stock and add brads in each of the four corners.  Cut out doily with die cut and adhere to centre of card.  Stamp image on white card stock, colour and then and cut out with circle die cut, ensuring to avoid cutting edges of leaves (accomplish this by precuting edges of leaves and pulling them "out" of the die cut before running through die cut machine).  Adhere to centre of card.
