Something a little more summery...

Hi All,

So for today's card I have decided to post something a little more summery and in my favourite colour.... Pink! The background for this are was First created using a piece of Hunkydory Adorable Scorable card, I stamped the butterfly trails stamp down the right side of the card using flitterglu and covered them in glitter for a super sparkly effect!! The tree was created by first stamping the Bare Tree stamp in Walnut distress ink and dragging out the colour using a water brush I added the butterflies to the top using the same technique with the flitterglu. I tinted the edges with a little pan pastel and mounted it on to the card.

Something a little different,

Hi All,

Here are some more of the samples from the Wedding Show in March, these ones are a little different to what I usually do as they are not a card!!! But gift boxes instead.

I created these using our fabulous handbag gift boxes as soon as I saw these I knew that I just needed them! They are truly fab and a really nice size too. I covered the bag in some Hunkydory foiled card stock. And then had the fun of embellishing them, I added a silky crush bow to each bag in a colour which matched the foiled card, and a diamanté and pearl embellishment. On the silver one I added the flower heart wreath and in the gold one I made some flowers using our large and small flower stamps which I stamped and embossed on some pretty pearl vellum which I found in my stash.

Wedding Show Sample 1

Hi All,

As promised here is one of my samples from the Wedding Show which I did back in March, however I will be doing this show again on 28th April at 3pm but with some slightly different designs this time.

For this one I wanted to show how well the lattice stamp works with the flower stamps which we already have in the range. To create the base I matted a piece of white pearl paper to the base of my card, then an embossed layer of white, then a plain layer of white. The Lattice has been stamped and embossed in WOW silver super fine and then glittered using a quickie glue pen, I also added a few pearls to the crosses of the lattice. The flower have been stamped and embossed in my favourite sparkling snow onto the same pearl paper as the base matt - and I'm very pleased to say that we will have some of this in stock very soon at Chloes Creative Cards!! I then finished the flowers off with a rhinestone cluster in the centre of each one. The card still looked a little plain and needed more embellishment in my opinion so I added a few beaded sprays behind and a silky crush bow in the corner.

Bye for now,
Chloe

I'm back....

Hi All,

I can't believe that this is my first April blog post, where has time gone! To make up for it I've decided to post two cards today. The first was made using the Flutterby Wreath stamp, I stamped and embossed it onto cream card in WOW Brass Embossing powder I then added a little glitter and painted the dragonflies on the wreath with some twinkling h2o's. to create the butterflies I stamped and embossed the wreath again onto pink paper and cut the butterflies out and layered it up, adding a few jewels too!! The background was created using my minds eye papers, I love love love theses papers so so much the glitter accents on them are just fab and we will soon have them available online when our new website launches later this month.

The second card was made again using my minds eye papers, I love the in this one, the cream part which I have layered the butterflies on has been em bossed using the elegance embossalicious folder, I then lightly dabbed around the edge with some radiant rain paint to add a little shimmer! The butterflies have been stamped and embossed in WOW metallic brass sparkle and then decoupaged onto the corners of the sentiment which has been cut using a spellbinder die.

Also I will be back on Create and Craft on 28th April at 3pm on the wedding show so I will be posting some of the samples on here soon...

Bye for now,
Chloe
