Cotton Candy

Good morning all
For today's card I have used papers from Lemoncrafts Cotton Candy Basic
pad. I've painted a piece of white card with  chalky paint and used a crackle medium
to get the aged crackled effect, a technique that I love to do as I love how it
looks. I've made the flowers from white Foamiran and coloured with
soft oil pastels.

Gossamer Blue

Good morning everyone
Back today with a card using gorgeous contrasting papers from Lemoncraft's
'Gossamer Blue' pad.  I've used 'Frame 06' for the centrepiece, I absolutely love
this chipboard. I've tucked some white voile under the blue top layer
and finished with handmade Foamiran flowers that I've coloured with soft
oil pastels.


For those of you that are new to Foamiran, it is a very thin foam from Iran
hence the name Foamiran. When heated with an iron or heat tool it
becomes very pliable and easy to shape. You can colour white Foamiran
with a variety of mediums including inks, soft oil pastels, mists, chalks etc.
It comes in loads of different colours and you can add more colour to
make it more dense  again by adding your colouring mediums.
If you haven't tried it yet, please do, it is very  therapeutic and most
satisfying seeing the lovely creations that you can make.

Wedding

Good morning peeps
So todays card doesn't have a flower in sight which is highly
unusual for me, but I love the sleek lines on this card.
I had some left over pebble paper from some wedding invitations I
made recently so I layered it onto silver linen card.
I then made a tag and layered the pebble paper onto silver glitter card.
I finished off with a simple sentiment, silver ribbon and a pearl and rhinestone cabochon.

Silk Foam

Good morning everyone
You know when you've made a card and look at it and think
"I love how this has turned out" well that is what I thought about
this card. I love how the papers blend perfectly together.
I layered papers from Lemoncraft's 'Cotton Candy Basic' and 'Just Love me'
pads, and I've used a pretty border punch on the top layer.
I've made the large flowers from 'Silk Foam' and the small ones
from 'Foamiran. I like both these products in equal measures as they make
the most fantastic flowers. I've coloured them with oil pastels.

White

Good Morning peeps
I love white on white as it always looks so fresh and crisp.
This card can be adapted to make a fabulous wedding or anniversary card.
I've used my favourite embossing folder Creative Expressions 'Beaded Fanfare'
and embossed then debossed it. I like the effect it has given.
I've overlaid a piece at the top and used Spellbinders Borderabilities 'A-2 Scalloped Borders One'.
The flowers have been made with white silk foam and I've just
added a bit of green foliage. If you haven't tried the silk foam yet please do
it is fabulous. Crafty Enjoyments are expecting a delivery in the next few days
and theirs are the best value around as you get a big sheet of it.
