Flowers Sent With Love

Here is the card I sent to to a dear lady on Circle of Crafters who's husband has terminal cancer. It is another one of Tracey's (Fred, She Said) new designs. So far, it is only available in this Blue, but if people let her know they like this set, she will be making it in more colors! The Blue backing paper is part of the set. The Yellow paper is some Pearl Yellow Cardstock that I embossed in the CB, then used my Color Box Queue Amber Satin Stamp Pad to highlight.

More of Fred, She Said's New Designs

Well, I just love working (ok, with Tracey's (Fred, She Said) designs! This is another of her new ones. This is from the Christmas Flower Doodledallions Digi Set. I used Photoshop to do the coloring and made a 3-D out of the image as well. The bottom layer has been edged with a Gold marker. I used Aleene's Tack-it Over & Over with a very fine tip and followed the scrolls and some of the circles on the second layer and added Blue Micro Glitter. Then I did the rest of the circles and filled in the outlined circles with Glamour Dust. The layers have been raised with thin foam tape. The ribbon is some I bought on my very first trip to Hobby Lobby and the backing paper is from my first Backing Paper CD.
This style card is what I call a Self Easel card. I have shown a Front view, side view and a close-up of the Dallion.

Working with New Sets from Fred, She Said

I have used Tracey's (Fred, She Said) new Digis for these cards.
First is the FFS-FFv5-Coloured Decoupage Blossoms&BFlies using the Yellow sheet. I cut the bottom layer short, edged it with Gold marker and then layered it on Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock Black Magic Cardstock which had been embossed with the Textile CuddleBug folder. I also edged this layer with Gold marker. The Flower elements have been cut out, shaped and layered with thin foam tape and glue. The Butterfly has been glittered with Glamour Dust using a Palette Stamp & Stick Glue Pad. The whole thing is then layered on Green Metallic Cardstock and Yellow Pearl Cardstock.
This is a really wonderful image of Emma that will be available later today. I have colored Emma using Adobe Photoshop Elements.
I used the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities to cut out the image of Emma and the mat layer behind her. The background paper is some of my own design from my first Backing Paper CD which I have layered in Photoshop.
After taking this picture, I decided that the CB leaf would look better un-tucked from Emma, so have done that and must say, it does look

Little Miss Bitty Flitting to make a friend feel better....

Well, when I saw the Challenge on DTC, I just knew I had to make this card for a friend who is going through some health issues right now. ;-)
Miss Bitty is from Fred, She Said and is digitally colored in Photoshop. The glitter on the card is Glamour Dust and is applied with Aleene's Tack-it Over and Over as are the 1/2 Pearls and Tatted Lace Flowers and Lace Ribbon Bow. I hope it brings some cheer to my friend. ;-)
