On Nitwits Pond

For the latest edition of Complete Cardmaking I got to play with papers and elements from On Nitwits pond collection.
I had to design nine cards, 8 for the mag and one for the website.
Here are a few of the cards I came up with.


Papers and elements for all creations - Free CD Complete Cardmaking issue 54
White linen card - Papermill direct
Spellbinders Grand labels 4
Spellbinders Grand circles
Seed beads


Not a card this time but a couple of baby vests.
Tonic Layering dies - circles
Sentiments - computer generated


Ribbed Kraft square card blank SF06U-99 - Craft Creations
A4 170gsm Matt inkjet photo paper - Photo Paper Direct
Sentiment - computer generated
Large stick on Pearl - Meiflower

I just wanted to take a minute to mention the paper I use for printing digital papers and images ( link above), I have been using this paper for a couple of years now, printed out at photo quality you get beautiful crisp images and bright colours, even at normal quality they are pretty good,  the paper costs £15.58 for 100 sheets, but you actually get 200 sheets as you also get 100 sheets free, it works out at approx. 8p per sheet, and any order over £9.99 is free P&P. 
As the paper is coated it's not suitable for colouring digital stamps, but is perfect for your digital papers, pre-coloured images and at 170gsm for decoupage too.
For the card above I printed two sheets of paper, one containing two of the background papers each covering half of the A4 sheet, and a second sheet with smaller pieces of paper, the image, flower and sentiment.
I also need to say that I am not affiliated with the company that I buy from in any way, I just love the great price for this paper, and after being asked what paper I use and where I get it from, thought it might be nice to share the info here on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look,
hugs,
Colette xx
