Hello ...I know another week gone, well nearly ....I'm in making card mode again... with all the latest designs some you haven't seen yet... am keeping them under wraps for a little while longer.. here are some pretties drawn from the art work I was kicking around mid of last year, using the same format with the nestie Dies and colouring with copics pens, I want to play more with these i can see butterflies and other flowers working in the same manner ...
This next few weeks are going to be a little mad or rather madder than usual, I have so many things i need to get started, finished or prepped up ...I am working on more of the out the frame looks either the shed or green house for more of an ''in the garden ''look with wooden planters and hanging baskets oh yes and a ''trug o flowers'' just need to find the right back ground ...they look ok on their own too for a special thank you.. so i'll try over the weekend to get those completed .. and then there are more in the Man's World coming shortly....
I have also been given a commission in the art side of me so will have to do a little more serious painting stuff, but I shall do my best to keep popping in and showing you the cards as they get completed till then
Happy crafting Jayne x

I can't belive it's Friday already ...I know I have had my head down drawing most of this week time has just flown by ...I'm going to carry on with showing you some more of the new cards made which is all part of the designing trying things out and see how sizing works....on the 2 cards tonight you will see the backing from one was actuaklly cut for the matting layer on the other... I like this as you get not only two bases of card but also the greetings backing layer too.
This is how it's done I've used a pencil and drawn around the inside of the Nestie die in this case it was Lables 3. ok remove the die and you should see your pencil line. at this point colour the background image and the seperate garden tools 2. decoupaging the pot and trowel more 3 times in all. leaving the trowel layer until later when you have attached the greeting in place, when it came to die cutting for the backing layer i thought if i cut it our of a piece of card top left slightly not only would i have the mat layer but would also have a apt ready for another card by cutting around the pencil line it would then fit, then use a soft rubber remove all traces of the pencil. I then cut the greeting backing layer out of the center of the image backing. saves card all round...I've then simply stamped using an old magenta stamp swirls diagonal corners wrapped ribbon placed the greting over the ribbon then attached the trowel over the lot. ..note to self .must do some background designs to go with these ......
I have to say the more I play with these print outs I can see that having all the elements seperated you can do vertually any thing and change the layouts to suit , each set then would have 3 main elements plkus extras the greetings or maybe 2 so we are looking at A5 size not C6 like all the other traditional decoupage style stamps. Personally I prefer either red or grey Rubber Slapstick style stamps you get a much finer detail stamped image and they do last a life time if you look after them , but then saying that I like the clear as you can see where you are poistioning the image. esp when you are creating a picture with multiple stamping... and then there is Digi stamps will have to look into this more ..... but I think you are tied to just set and print you can move images around and create a picture that way ... but with printing then you are tied to Copics, Pro markers or simular for colouring Although I have been playing with oil based and pastel pencils as well as pergomarno style but that will be next week...
enjoy your weekend see you soon Happy colouring in........ Jayne x

Hi everyone, ok tonight I have another decoupage style card made below, but over the last few days I've been doing a little design ing for embellishments add ons what ever you want to call them and some will end up on the sets to suit , so all this playing helps to create the set ....these add ons for these cards and for cards coming up as we move through the designing to the next stage by removing the decoupage frame and start playing around with the spellbinder nesstabilities frames and lable die cuts...this in turn opens up the canvas....
I've rambled on enough for today ...see you again soon till then Happy Crafting Jayne xx
Thurs or friday this week we will look a little closer at some more new cards and more ideas I've managed to get onto paper, I find the more i explore a new concept the more I see that will work and the more detracted I get so if my posting is a bit hap hazard over the next weeks and months while the collection are getting together I hope the waiting will be all worth while.. what was it some one said ''it will be alright in the end'' if it's not alright, then it's not the end.....lol xx very true actually
Ok so i hope you will continue to pop in and have a look and leave some comments, may be even some ideas you may like for that Man in your life and could be part of this ''A man's world ''
see you soon
