More samples from Sweet Poppy Stencils

Mica Powders and Wheat Stencil

My 1st card uses the wheat stencil with translucent paste and Sweet Poppy Mica Powders. I heated to make the paste bubble to add texture to the wheat.  The small flowers were elements from the Honeysuckle Circle


The second card again uses the wheat stencil. Poppy was from a stamp I had in my box. I used gold paste and mica again using the same technique.
Poppy Stamp available from Oyster

Landscspe card

Creative Expressions card

I am into landscape cards at the moment....they can make your projects stand out.
Embossed with Rambling Blossoms EF. Mats cut as shown and double scored the top layer to make a "frame" and also cut the
Striplet Collection Ravello Die  to show the coloured card through. I also cut another 2 Striplets so I could layer them up without adding too much depth.
Not a peel off fan but found the sentiment in the same colour as the card I had used.
Ivy from Greek Border Corner and Tag Set.
Rubbernecker Butterfly Stamp colour with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens
Bling mini flowers to add some Sparkle

Digi Print Easter Card

If you are a Colourist.........
I really love the detail on these Digi prints from Marcella at Power~Poppy...
The detail on the designs is so true to life. I thought this magnolia image with the Daffs would be great for batch making Easter/ Spring cards. If you like colouring ( which I find very therapeutic)then I am sure you will like these images. 
Very reasonable priced too. There are also stamp Sets available which have more in them - shipped from USA.

Resist Card

Resist Technique using
Creative Expressions Stamps
Stamped over an A4 sheet of paper with white embossing powder and the Orange Blossom  Stamps ( dies also available). Distress Inks all over with colours of your choice. Cut out square for the card base - in this case a 7" square.  I roughly marked out the base size first so I could stamp the remaining area with whole flowers for cutting out. Butterfly Stamp by Rubbernecker, coloured with a Glitter pen. Sentiment by Creative Expressions.

Workshop at J and C Creations

Groovi Card

Mother's Day Groovi CArds

I love the versatility of the Groovi system. The corner punch was used for decoration in the 1st card for an added element.
For the second card I die cut a geometric shaped ( could be a decagon?) for interest.
Used a multicolour paper to mount it on and also cut a strip to thread through the slits.
Products used and more details can be found on the Clarity website....
