I would swear that I have blogged these cards already, but in looking over old posts it seems that I have not. I freaked out when I saw that, since they are all made using images drawn by a dear online friend who is very talented: Tiffany Richards.
My timing is not horrible though, I suppose, since Tiffany just opened her first official store: Tiffany Doodles. It's looking lovely and I'm enjoying making some new things with other images of hers.
Despite their being older cards, it is really handy to have some cards to post. My duties on the home-front are keeping craftiness from happening (Charles can't walk, of course, and is in desperate need of a nurse, cook, waitress, and chief bottlewasher or general gofer...) which means the half-made new cards will wait a wee bit... He is being a trooper though!
This one was my first inchie card ever:
I bought this set ages ago, but was waiting to get an inchie punch (That's why I'd never made an inchie card before this one.) LOVE this sweet tea cup and the fact that you can print digis wee so you can go crazy with inchies!
To make the little tea bag tag...
A) Printing "TEA" on cardstock in black marker
B) Cut them out (tiny) and edge in silver gel pen
C) Glue them onto tea cup inchies
D) Draw a silver tea bag string
(it has sayings in the classiest font--used here on the "Tea Time" tag)
The next card uses the sweetest little lamp...
that I'm just in love with.
It's embossed on digital patterned
paper to paper piece it (from TracyAnnDigitalArt on etsy)
The sentiment is a sticker from SRM stickers
the "Thinking of You" sheet available here.
Tiff makes some stunning flowers (real & doodley):
This Mom's day card is made using Tiffany's
photographic flower line art called Velvet Flower.
She even shares a tutorial on how you can make your own digi
like this from your Photographs here (Completely Genius!)
To make the image into 3D flowers:
A) Change the colour of the image to turquoise
B) Print it in different sizes and emboss them in clear embossing powder
(here's a post with a write-up of a quick way to emboss from the ink jet printer)
C) Cut them out (trimming in between petals)
D) Shape the flowers & adhere them to the card mat
E) Stitch turquoise seed beads onto the centers
To make the matching leaves:
A) Colour some of the flowers over with green copic marker
B) Cut into leaf shapes & adhere them around the flowers
The paper is GCD Paris Nights patterned paper stamped with this paisley stamp
in Versamark ink then embossed in clear and distrssed over it with white pigment ink.
(I cut the butterfly in half to make 2 butterflies--Two for a buck! hehehe)
The butterflies are embossed and their bodies are stitched with seed beads.
(The paper is more digital patterned paper from TracyAnnDigitalArt on etsy)
