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

Moon Fairy

Topper made by sprinkling this @nuvobytonic Lilac Waterfall Shimmer Powder on white cardstock, spritzing it with water either drying it it leaving it to dry. Matted onto black card with a fairy die I got on eBay (unbranded). I added a heart for her to hold and added a few black stars, that were the waste parts of other dies (save everything as it can all be used 😃). Few dabs of @nuvobytonic Pink Champagne Glitter Drops and I’m really pleased with the end result. I’ve only recently started making my own backgrounds, only ever used card or paper before really. It’s great fun as everyone will turn out differently 💙 #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #diecutting #crafts #greetingcards #nuvoshimmerpowder #nuvodrops #novoshimmerpowder #fairy #moon

Unicorn Card No 2

My next #unicorn card is another idea I saw in You Tube but I’ve adapted it. It folds flat to fit in an envelope – bonus! The colouring not great in the photo but the pink spotty card matches the image inside better in real life. I’ve used @nuvobytonic drops again in pink, aqua and purple yo match the @nuvobytonic lilac waterfall powder background. 💙 #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #stamping #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #diecutting #crafts #greetingcards

Unicorn Card No 1

It’s hard to describe this card! I got the idea looking at a You Tube video. It’s like a card going up with one inside as a tent fold. Take a long piece of card and score near the bottom and fold up, then stick a tent fold card inside going over the top of it. I’ve shown it closed and open. Unicorn card as promised. Check my next post for the other one I’ve made. The background was made with spritzed pink Hobbycraft metallic ink pad on my mat and @nuvobytonic lilac waterfall shimmer powder spritzed and brushed out. I used @nuvobytonic liquid drops for accents. I coloured with Promarker pens and used a @dawn_bibby Moonsparkle Glitter Pen to add a bit of sparkle 💙 #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #diecutting #crafts #greetingcards #stamping #unicorn

Finished Cards Using Chloe Stamps and Die Set

Here are the (almost) finished cards – still need to do the insides and envelopes. I used a few bits from an old Flower Fairy set that was free on a magazine ages ago to finish the black, pink and silver easel card. Just a few finishing touches like corners and Nuvo Drops added too. Hope you like them #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #crafts #greetingcards 💙
