Okay there are three cards and some photos to show you what I have been up to this weekend. (Photo heavy) I don't want you thinking I do anything other than stamping, colouring and making cards. Mum and dads Nursing Home is in total lock down due to influenza. Lucky we decided to just barge in on Fathers day because no one has been allowed in since then even to take mum out for walks which means its been really hard on dad but lots of phone calls each day so he is surviving.
Todays cards, this one was inspired by the Muse Card done by Anita
I loved the blended colours and the colour choices but instead of
water stamping I used a silver embossed piece of card stock that I cut to shape.
I also loved the look of the black sentiment and wanted to do the glossy
accents look but as I am babysitting I forgot to bring the Glossy Accents
and had to settle on just black. I have managed to catch some of the silver
embossing in the light with this photo.
Very easy and pretty card. Thanks so much for the inspiration Anita.
This card is made with a layer of beautiful pattern paper that has a gold embossed cloud
pattern on it. I added this to the card base then the Copic coloured digital image that I have
framed with a gold cardstock die cut oval frame. She fit in perfectly.
Finished off with a vellum strip with a sentiment gold embossed
'Hello Gorgeous' and a few scattered blue enamel dots to
match the birds.

I Love these ladies and I don't get around to using them enough so I have dug them all out to start using again amongst all the other stamps - hoo hum. Ok this was easy as I had already done this type of card before and had a little envelope with dresses in it so just needed to match up.
Was one dress short for the lady at the back as I didnt want to dress her in Jacket and dress the same,
her elegance just wouldn't allow that so dressed her in a soft apricot coloured dress that went perfectly with her Jacket. They all look 'Hot to Trot' as we would say here so I thought the sentiment
perfect rather than the one that came with it.

Thank you so much for coming to Visit and I hope you come again soon.
Next this is what happens when you cant go visit your parents on lockdown and when exhaustion hit after a week of specialists and tests for Elysha. It was a good week, all is well and Elysha continues to loose weight, her heart is doing brilliant, new hearing aids working fabulous, pre diabetes medication causing no side effects so life is good.
Yep what you see is stamping but not just been a good girl stamping: This is using all those NBUS stamps that have been siting for the last year that I just had to have and have had to time to use and the pile grew and grew. Well I stayed and stamped and stamped and then I finally worked out not only how to cut on the Scan n Cut but also how to add a border.
What a machine, I love it. Still have lots to learn but its brilliant. First lesson from this lot- images like Stamping Bella, that are so fine lined are not picked up by the Scan n Cut it only randomly picked out parts of lines - to be continued...... lesson No 2 learnt how to stop the scan n cut picking up lighter lines therefore stopping it cutting inside images as it sometimes randomly does..... thank heavens for sons.......
