Close to My Heart New Zealand

March 09, 2014

Welcome back

I am so impressed with Close to My Heart designing stamp sets for Australia and New Zealand and have had this New Zealand set sitting around for a while waiting for a time to make some cards with them.  These stamps encapsulate the essence of New Zealand with lovely detailed images of a sheep, Kiwi and mountain ranges.  The sentiments are great as well.  I have teamed them with the lovely Timberline papers that evoke the colonial past of New Zealand.  And I have used my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut out some tags to do something different from what I normally do.  I normally use Desert Sand to distress but today I decided to try Cashmere and I was really pleased with the end result as that colour worked in really well with the Timberline range of papers.

For this card I have  distressed the edges the tag  with Cashmere ink.  The image has been stamped with Black ink and coloured in with Sweet Leaf, Sky and Buttercup alcohol markers.  This tag has been matted onto some New England Ivy cardstock that brings out the image really well.  I have cut some scrap pieces of tartan paper and dovetailed them using scissors from the Timberline paper pack to create the ribbons for the tag.  The sentiment is inked with black and the card has been finished with some green epoxy bubbles.

This card was very quick to make.  I have cut the blue paper and woodgrain papers from the Timberline paper pack and distressed the edges with Cashmere ink.  I have used the zip strip to thread through the tag and attach to the card.  The tag has been distressed with Cashmere ink and the Kiwi and the sentiment was stamped in Chocolate ink and then some sparkles from the Black and Tan sparkles assortment finished off the tags.

This card has been created using the pattern from the Made it From the Heart Volume 2 book page 46.  This is such an easy pattern to use for all occasions.  I have added some Lagoon cardstock behind the very masculine looking papers to add a pop of colour.  The zip strip has been matted with Lagoon and Chocolate cardstock which picks up the colours in the strip.  I have again used Cashmere to distress the tag and the kiwi and sentiment has been stamped in Chocolate ink.  To finish off I have used a Slate twist tie and some tan epoxy bubbles.

Finally for this card I have used Cashmere cardstock and after cutting to size I have embossed it with the Quatrefoil embossing folder and distressed the edge with Cashmere ink.  The blue paper from the Timberline paper packet has been trimmed to size and then distressed with Cashmere ink.  I then cut a thin strip of Slate cardstock and using Slate ink I have stamped tone on tone using the arrow stamps from the Catch You Later set to echo the zip strip I later added.  I have stamped the sheep and sentiment with Slate ink on the tag and then distressed the tag with Cashmere ink.  I have attached the card using grey Bakers Twine and finished off by using some scraps of zip strip ad paper to create some banners to place at the top of the card.
