'Handmade Cards'

Amy with you here today, sharing some handmade cards using the gorgeous 'Jane Davenport' Girl Flowers stamps from the store.

It is always nice to have some feminine cards in one's stash, to give to a friend on a special occasion. 
In keeping with the feminine theme I wanted to use nice tones based around the pink pictured. For both cards, I trimmed black cardstock down to C6 size (so they can easily be posted). Then I trimmed the white card to fit within it - and gave it a good coat of clear Gesso. 

Once dried, I prepped the background using the awesome goodies from the store - (fun!!)

For the background, for both cards, I used Dylusions by Dyan Reaveley - Shimmer Sprays in Bubblegum Pink, Crushed Grape, Pure Sunshine, Cut Grass, Calypso Teal - and ColourBlast Colour Shimmer Spray in Bling (love this stuff 😊).

For the white splatters I used Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in 'Picket Fence'.

For both of these cards I used Jane Davenport Girl Flowers stamps as the focus. For the background I used Carabelle Studio Art Stamp - 'Edges in my Journal'. I love this stamp set so much!

Finally, for this card, I added some flowers from my stash and used some quotes from Tim Holtz 'Small Talk'.

For the sentiment of the second card I have used the Dina Wakley Media Collage Words from the store. The flowers and medical gauze were remnants from my stash - to complete this card!

Ciao for now! Amy 😊
