Today I want to share with you some DT work I'm doing for Daisy Chains Scrapbooks. These cards & two LO's will be displayed in the shop & at the upcoming Craft Show in Brisbane if Barbi likes them enough.
I have been working with Kaisercraft's Remember Me range. I must admit it's not something I normally would work with. Sometimes it is wonderful to work outside your comfort zone don't you think? I must admit my first two cards I wasn't that happy with but I'm loving these last ones I've done.
This is a 6.5" Scrapbook page. I trimmed my photo down to just under 4" square. As I wanted to showcase this gorgeous pp. I stamped the Poppy at the bottom on some pale yellow pp from the range & added foam adhesive behind it to raise it up. The title is from the pad. All I had to do was ink around the edges to give them definition. I love this photo of "Gra-Gra" (my mum) & Emsy when she was about two. I'm going to send this over to my Mum when I get it back as I know she will enjoy it.
This card is fairly simple with the hardest bit is paper piecing the flowers. Once again I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the edges of everything. When I saw the poppies I knew that I wanted to make a card that payed tribute to those that passed in wars (we celebrated ANZAC Day just recently). I also think this would be a good sympathy card as well.
I also challenged myself to make some Masculine cards with this paper range. I wanted people to see they weren't limited with these gorgeous papers. This is a fairly simple card, the chair panel is actually a Die Cut that came with the pad. I used grey Bazzil for the base. I added another Kaisercraft stamp set for the sentiment this time.
This card I really love. I'm thinking it would make a great Valentines, Wedding, Anniversary card. I made this into an easel card & added another Die Cut (with foam adhesive on the back) to keep it standing up. The die cut says "Todays little moments become tomorrow's precious memories". I added some Stickles to the centres of the poppies just because I wanted to "Bling it up" a little.
This is the second card I made with the "Blokes" in mind. Although it would really suit anyone I guess. The clock face is another Die Cut from the pad, as is the scallop border. The sentiment is from another Kaisercraft stamp set.
This is the 12 x 12 LO I did. It's mainly Bazzil in Pinks, Red & Manilla. I stamped the Butterfly twice & paper pieced it. The poppies where stamped & then coloured with Distress inks & water. I covered some chipboard letters in pp from the Pad. On the red bazzill I randomly stamped the large poppy all over it.
Well that is it from for today. Hopefully I will have some more a little later for you all.
