A 'Crafty' Day

Good evening, well today I have been playing with some of the new Woodware stamps and making samples for work (Samuel Taylors).  I have had a lovely time with all three as they are all so different.  

Noah's Ark
For Noah's Ark I have stamped the image twice, once onto plain white card and again onto some craft card.  I coloured the image on the white card and cut out the Ark from the craft card, slightly tricky but worth it :)  I have used some simple white spot on blue and some paler craft card for the layers.

The tree card is my favourite :)  I have kept it really simple.  The solid trees I have stamped with Flitter Glue and then used gilding flakes.  I then stamped the skeleton trees onto acetate using Stazon black ink.  I attached the acetate to the craft card with some metal brads and then mounted them onto a plain white 6x6 card.  The little verse that comes with the trees was then stamped straight onto the plain card.  

Mother's Day Card
This is quite a large stamp and gives loads of opportunity to add embellishments or colour into the little circles.  I chose to use some pearls and card candi.  I stamped and cut out the image with a large scalloped circle die and then inked using an Adirondack Sandal ink pad.  I coloured the leaves with two shades of green Copic pens.  The background papers are Kaisercraft 75 cents collection.  I also used the tonic butterfly punch to punch out two butterflies from the same papers.  The sentiment is from a Kaisercraft set called 'Mother'.

Thanks for popping by and taking a look at my cards.
