Muchas Gracias

It's a cat and dog tale on Cute Card Thursday this week and a cat or dog has to feature. I've made a little folder for stamped images from a great tutorial by Moni on her blog Moni's Creative Place, Rach has a link to this on her blog too which is how I originally found it, thank you girls. I think it's a lovely and a very clever idea and it's easy to follow the instructions and make it up.

I've used a little Clear Stamps set which I've stamped in Versafine Sepia and water coloured with Ranger distress inks, then cut out with Nestabilities together with a mat of pale green Bazzil Bling with a scalloped square. For the wallet I've used a dark green bazzil card and I've strengthened it a bit with more card where I put the magnetic closure. The fold over flap is decorated with a layer of the pale green Bazzil Bling, My Minds Eye dots paper a strip of pale green sparkly glitter paper, layered paper flowers with gems and then the image panel which is popped up on dimension tape.

I'd like to thank everyone for all the lovely comments left this last week and as always, they're very much enjoyed and appreciated. Apologies for not having been able to get round to everyone to reply due to work.

Back soon,

How cute is this, and that little chihuahua makes me smile:o) Your creativity and eye for color never ceases to amaze me. I think I will have to give this folder a try. It would be the perfect little gift when sending out images. Thank you for sharing your beautiful art work and for all the wonderful inspiration!

Sandra said...

Hi Chris,thank you for your kind comments on my blog...you mentioned getting some Promarkers and asked which i would recommend,i'm new to these,but have found i'm better with the paler shades,colour my image first with these and then use my Prisma's to shade and blend...who am i telling you how to colour,it's me who needs lessons from you...lol
I'm not confident enough to colour and blend with the Promarkers alone,alot of people are,you probably will be,
Take care

This is brilliant! I bought a load of stamped images from ebay when I started card making and I keep them in a shoe box! I think I will have a go at something like this to keep them in.
