Thoughts Wandering Cards by Melinda Thompson

Posted on

Hi there everyone,

 

I am back today to share with you all some sweet cards I created using the gorgeous Manor House Creations “Thoughts Wandering” paper range as well as their beautiful flowers.  I haven’t added any sentiments to the card as I will wait until they need to be used :)

For this card I have used cut some strips from the “Beautiful” paper and added some Silks Acrylic Paint in Ginger Flower to the background along with some water to spread it out.  Then I added my layers. How super pretty is that gorgeous pink lace flower!

 

 

 

Products Used:

Thoughts Wandering Papers
Vinette – Chestnut
Ornate Frame
French Lace (Pink)
Gelato – Cherry
Country Roses – Cerise

 

Oh I love the chipboard bike with that cute heart shaped seat…just adorable, I couldn’t wait to use it! I have painted the bike in Silks Acrylic Glaze in Iridescent Gold and then touched it up in places with some more Silks Acylic Glaze in Solar Gold as well as some glitter.  I have also used in my background a Nouveae White feature frame which I have added some gorgeous Twinkling H20’s to it for a water coloured effect. 

 

 

Products Used:

Thoughts Wandering Papers
Nouveae White Feature Frame
Gelato Cherry
Rustic
Cuties Pies – Orange
Thoughts Wandering Blossoms
Wooden Elements – Bicycle

 

This was a super quick card featuring two different frames layering one on top of the other. After I added my base papers I got the first frame which is the Botanical Frame, spritzed with some Shimmerz in Pink Stilettos and immediately turned it over onto some paper towel and pressed it down. Then I added the second ornate frame and just added some glitter to the border of it.  I also ripped the end of the Denim Rosette and let it naturally curl for a shabby look.

Feature frames & DIY wedding invitations

Hello again. Today we wanted to show you one of our fabulous new products called FEATURE FRAMES which may now be in your local store.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These frames come in 4 designs and were designed with both scrappers and card-makers in mind and they are totally versatile. Today we’ll focus on the card-makers and show you a few ideas on how to make either your own Wedding invitations OR how to make a card for a wedding you may need to attach to a wedding gift. Hand-made cards are always so much more precious.

This first card is fairly straight forward and uses the NOUVEAU feature frame as a background. All these cards are made on Twiddleybitz card packs which we stock.

And this card also uses the Romantique feature frame but this time it’s placed over the top of a piece of aqua cardstock to really make the pattern stand out & give it a small elegant border. The gold bow just adds that extra special glamorous touch.

And this final card adds a touch of glamour in another way, by misting the feature frame with some gold glimmermist – we used Apple. These feature frames can be altered by colour so easily! Again this card has a slide-off piece to reveal the invitation inside.

Heritage cards

HI everyone, Just a quick post as we are flat-out with filling orders for our wonderful customer stores. We recently sold a beautiful HARITAGE CARD KIT at the Brisbane expo and have been getting requests for pictures of the cards. Finally we have found the box with them in (phew!) and have taken some photos for you. They are fairly straight forward and should be easy to copy if you need to, or just use them for inspiration.

Have fun!
