Pink Princess

Another topper with my @tonicstudios Shimmer Powders spritzed with water. Really enjoying experimenting with different backgrounds. Have made a few now and really pleased with the results. I love my @hunkydorycrafts kit. #hunkydorycreations #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #crafts #greetingcards

Green Fairy

Been making toppers again 💙. This Background was @tonicstudios shimmer powder Green Parade mixed with water in a spray bottle – pleased with the results. @teamspellbinders fairy, @kanban_crafts rubber stamps, unbranded pixie and mushroom dies, @dawnbibbycreations moon sparkle pen in the fairy and @ranger Stickles Crystal for the sparkle by the wand. #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #crafts #greetingcards #diecutting

Mauve Birthday Magnificence

I think this is the nicest card making kit I’ve ever bought – beautiful colours, quality card stock. The base card was a plain mauve from @createandcrafttv with a darker piece of mauve I already had. The rest is all from a @kanban_crafts kit Magnificence. It’s all so pretty it’s the sort of card, paper and toppers you don’t want to use you just want to look at! Well I’m starting to use it and can look at the photos 😃. I’ve made a black, gold and silver card from the same kit but can’t post till the weekend as it’s for a friend’s anniversary. I added two peel off butterflies, the dirt where they are only sticky in the middle, added some large gold and clear corners accented with @nuvobytonic drops. I love it 💙 #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #crafts #greetingcards #butterflies #purple #mauve #gold

Finished Background Cards

Here are two cards I made with two of the backgrounds I made. Absolutely love the colours. I’m rather proud of them – very easy to make but look very effective. I batch cut some fairies and accessories out so I will have enough to make a few cards. I’m trying to work smarter not harder. I saw a tip somewhere that said if you are stamping an image for a card, stamp several while you have everything out and you’ll have some ready for another day. Brilliant idea – just like cooking extra chilli etc to have for lunch the next day – I do that all the time so why not do the same with my card making. 🦋

Skipping Imps

Skipping imps on the first background from last post- will turn into a card later. Got the perfect colour @tonicstudios Nuvo Drops Aquatic Mist to highlight 💙 #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #crafts #greetingcards #diecutting

More backgrounds

Been having another play at doing backgrounds – my new favourite thing! Using @tim_holtz @ranger_ink #distressoxideinks and @tonicstudios Shimmer Powders – can’t decide which is my favourite yet – it’s too close to call. Absolutely love how the Oxide Inks blend beautifully and love how the Tonic #nuvoshimmerpowder shimmer – so some of these use both 💙 some are on plain card, some on textured watercolour card. Not sure about the colours on the last one, may have to add another colour. What do you think? 💙 #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #crafts #greetingcards #distressoxide #distressoxideinks #shimmerpowder #backgrounds
