More Craftwork Cards


Well as the title suggests here are some more of the cards made with Craftwork Cards Sweet Meadow collection.

This card was made using a shaped card blank. The bracket edge was folded back and some of the funky paper stuck to this and trimmed to the edge. On the inside back was some pale text paper, sorry it doesn't show up very well. Then one of their die cut toppers, matted onto one of the die cut shapes. A few card candt, a bit of glitter and there you go! The glitter is a bit subtle, just on a few buttons on the paper and around the birthdau message.
This second card was again a 6x6" card. The pale paper was cut from a sheet of the embossed paper. It doesn't show up on the photo but the roses were embossed are are gorgeous in real life. Two banners were trimmed and then cut so that theyadded something to both sides of the card. A die cut tag with pink ribbon through and some card candy top left and bottom right. A touch of stickles and a lovely delicate card. 

This next card was a slightly smaller 5" square card. The text writing was from the same sheet of backing paper used in one of the cards shown yesterday. The 2 squares at the bottom were again cut from a shet of backing paper and the images glitteres. A sentiment banner, folded to add dimension, and a die cut flower added in top right corner with a card candy and bit of bling! On this card I edged the pieces of backing papers with glitter glue as well.

This last card was done as a standard A6 card. The backing paper was agan trimmed to size, because it is a 8x8" paper, you can get 2 cards along a similar vein from this one sheet. A strip of patterned paper with 3 card candy and a die cut sentiment topper. Stickles glitter glue was added here and there to lift the card. You may have noticed that there are card candy in the centre of the flowers,. but they looked a bit out of sync with the rest of the card, so I doodled on them to make them look like buttons and think this works really well.

Hope you have enjoyed seeing what you can do if you limit yourself to only certain things. Sometime I feel that we can get a bit overwhelmed if, like me you have lots of crafting goodies! Or you have so many tools and punches and spend so much time deciding which one to use, you hardly get any actual crafting done. Maybe there really is somthing in the saying Less is More! 

Once again thanks to Gwen at The Stamp Pad for a fantastic workshop! And more excuses to buy crafting goodies! Like I really needed an excuse!

Happy Crafting

  2. That's spot on about the vast stash stunting creativity! I usually make lists of things to try. I never look at the list, but if I write something down enough times I remember it anyway, lol! Love the cards, such pretty colours.
