This visit was no exception and I managed to make nine cards which I am really pleased with.
I started with the tree cards. The trees were stamped onto a piece of card and then again onto four different pieces of printed paper. The tree shapes were then cut out of the printed paper and glued into place on the stamped image on the card. Four pieces of the same printed paper were then glued onto a card base to make a frame behind the focal image of the trees and the card with the trees was then glued into place on top of the frame. They were a lot of fun to make and all four cards were made using just four 6 x 6 inch pages of printed paper and some card.
Next were the owl cards. These were lots of fun. The images were stamped and coloured and then mounted onto base cards which were decorated with pretty printed papers and a few little brads.
Another card was made very simply by masking off the bottom half of a card and stamping flowers and foliage along the top of the mask. A piece of green ribbon was added underneath the flower garden and finally a greeting was added to finish it off. Most of the stamps and papers for the cards above came from Gina K. Designs and inspiration was drawn for the designs from StampTV.
For the last cards we made we tried out a 'sunburst' design. This was a lot more difficult to get right than it looks but, I am fairly happy with the results. The inspiration for these cards came from images on Google.
Thank you Janet for a lovely weekend! You can see some of my sister's beautiful card designs over on her blog 'Cards, Cats and Coffee'.
