Birthday Cards- Thankyou!!!!

Post by Guest on Wed 25 Feb 2009 - 22:14

Thankyou very much indeed for my beautiful cards!!!!
What a pleasure to open such beautiful cards, I'll be keeping every one.
As I've looked at them quite a few times today I have a comment on each one and a question or two if you don't mind just as I'd love to try out techniques, colouring etc, that you've used.

Here they are.



Steph yours really touched me as you have so much on yourself at the moment and I've never seen one like it, it's a beautiful technique, beautifully decoupaged and all layered into a gorgeous teadrop/dewdrop with a pretty girl image.

Ruth I was so honoured as you made me one of your gorgeous stamped cards which I've been admiring. I see how vivid the colours are so I see IRL what you mean by the (can't remember what they're called) but the better colouring in pencils.
I liked the way you emobossed each individual flower too, I must ask if that's done with an embossing tool by yourself or a machine? I want to have a go as they look fab. A gorgeous card.

Tina what beautiful colours! I love the flowers and was wondering which dies you used as the flower shapes are fab! What gorgeous papers you used too.

Lynda yours is so elegant, you've used lovely colours and try as I have I never seem to get that classy look which you do.

Karelyn, a pretty stamped flower and I love the technique you've used on the embossed background, which is shades of green, now that had me wanting to try that as it looks great. Did you use an inkpad which have different shades?

Billie yours is so pretty, such lovely papers all coordinating with the paisley pattern and flowers.

Lou that is a lovely stamped Geisha image, I like how you've stamped the Japanese writing onto mullberry then that with a backing of velvet paper is so strokable as well as eyecatching.

Wow, they are all lovely!

I got a Cricut for my birthday (and christmas and everything else) last year; the flowers are cut on the George and basic shapes cartridge. Paper is a HOTP kit.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Lovely selection there, Gillian!

Thankyou for the compliment: classy - wow! I think it's because I like the more minimalist style. Actually, I've got a bit hooked on that design at the moment: it works so well with all sorts of papers - Prima daisies with the contemporary ones and the hydrangeas with traditional designs. Please feel free to copy!

They are nice,
yes it's a brilliance pad, the one I've had about 10-12 years and now need to replace as the blue has run out LOL It has blue and 2 greens, I've had some use out of that over the years.

Sorry Alison, I received a gorgeous card from you on Friday and it totally slipped my mind to add it on here, I love the paper you used, my favourite colours in purples. Thankyou for thinking of me. x

I'm so sorry Jan I missed thanking you, not intentional at all, I love those cute little hedgehogs, it's a lovely card. You are another who colours the images beautifully and I wondered what you used to do it.
