Victorian Young Ladies



Good Morning all my crafty Peeps, hope your week is going OK and I know lots of you have quieter houses this week here in the UK with the schools starting back for the Autumn term.

I thought I would share a couple more of the cards I have created using Ignacio's Nicecrane images which I am thoroughly enjoying working with. I must admit that I wasn't sure at first as I always have this feeling if a card is not stamped then I've not really done my work properly, but I take all that back because this new style of crafting........new for me that is, is a sheer delight. And of course much of that comes from the quality and style of Ignacio's products. So if it's a style of crafting you have never tries, then I urge you to give it a go.


The card at the top used an image from the Victorian Young Ladies image sets - links to all at the bottom, a background stamped with a Hero Arts script stamp......I got some stamping in you see........ a Spellbinder frame and flowers made using Tonic's punch and stamp Rose set.

The second card and my second Christmas card for the year.................at this rate of one I week I should be ready for Christmas in a few years time uses the adorable image Frame It by Kate Greenaway images just very simply matted up and embellished with some ribbon, poinsettias and holly.

Have a good Wednesday.

  15. Hi Brenda.
    You asked me how I decoupaged the butterflies. The larger of the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch around the page butterfly and the smaller butterfly is Tonic I think.
    I have put the links at the bottom of my post.
    Hugs Sharon. x

  22. Two beautiful cards! The second one is my fav; I like the colours and the Christmas-Vintage look! I recieved the steampunk girls digiset from Ignacio, but didn´t find time to play with it; there are some things that have to be made first... The weather is so sunny today, think I´ll be enjoying the garden/outdoors a lot today! Hugs, Gerrina
