With the ongoing lockdown situation it has been hard for independent creators to deal with shipping. To overcome this Sue Taylor of Strawberry Moon kindly organised a FREE download of her Spring collection.
This is a bright vibrant set of images which remind me of Romany caravans and canal barges. Once I printed the designs onto some creme coloured card stock, I got busy creating….
The background papers are mainly floral but the beauty of a download is that you can size them to suit your purpose. I used my own circular cutting dies and mustard yellow cardstock. The matching sentiments and quotes can either be a focal point on your card or a stylish finishing touch.
The designs are clear and crisp and a little reminiscent of Orla Kieley’s work. You can make very clean and simple cards like the little dove in the right hand corner below. Alternatively, upsize the flowers, cut them out and decorate the outside of an embroidery frame with a quote inside.
It is a really pretty, stylish set of designs. I am sure if you emailed Sue Taylor at Strawberry Moon she could send you a link to the download
Every now and then craft products come along that really allow your creativity to soar. This was the case with a set of butterfly stamps that have recently been launched by Lisa Horton Crafts. They were designed by Anne Ruffles who is a Certified Zentangle Teacher.
I made dozens of samples for the launch of this range of stamps however today I would like to guide you in the direction of my YouTube Channel because I spent hours creating a series of four videos with step by step tutorials for these cards
There are three sets of stamps within the range. I wouldn’t be able to tell you my favourite so here are the links to them all at Lisa Horton Crafts
Here are the links to each of my videos. You can watch them in order. Alternatively pick the techniques that you would like to work on.
So there you have it a wide range of cards using various techniques.
