Meadow Two-Fer

Hi Bloggers.

I have a simpled two-fer for you today featuring the Woodware Meadow Flowers Stamp Set.

Here's your first card -

I started by dusting a piece of Coconut White Card with an Anti-Static Bag and stamped the Woodware Meadow Flowers using Clear Perfect Medium. I embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using die #2 from Sue Wilson's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B. I then covered the whole area with CS Colour Clouds using Smoothies - I used Decadent Teal, Decadent Denim and Decadent Grape. I bleached some of the colour out on the flowers and leaves using a Water Brush (with just water in it).

I matted onto a piece of Black Card cut using die #3 from Sue's Scalloped Lattive Frames Set B and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I stamped one of the sentiments in the set onto Coconut White Card and embossed using True White Powder. I added Decadent Teal and Decadent Denim Colour Cloud. I cut out using Sue's Double Pierced Rectangles and cut a Black Card mat using her Double Pierced Rectangles Set B.

Here's your second card -

Very simple - I spritzed a piece of Coconut White Card with water and sprinkled Spearmint CS Pixie Powder over. Once dry, I dusted with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the Meadow Flowers twice and the other sentiment in the set using Clear Perfect Medium. I added CS Black Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I made a frame using Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B and added it to my design using 3D Foam Tape. I popped onto a Coconut White Card mat. I finished my card off by adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner of my frame.

  10. Love both cards. I have a lot to make at present so some simple designs like thes will be just the thing. Thank you for the inspiration.

  11. Morning Julia,
    Love both card, the stamps are so lovely.

  12. Two lovely cards but the first one has the right colours for me. It is interesting that cards using the same stamp can look so different depending on the choice of background. It just needs a little imagination as you are showing here.


  13. Morning Julia, Two fabulous cards, the first one has a fantastic coloured background, and the second one looks fantastic with the pixie background and the black stamping.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  14. Two more lovely cards, Julia. These are just the type of card that sell well in my "charity box".
