Mei asked me to do her some samples using lots of bling to show on her stall at craft shows, I made her half a dozen samples, one of which I showed on a previous post, so here are a couple more.

Both of these cards are based around straight lines, and are cased from designs I have seen around blog land, although I don't remember where, so if you recognise them please let me know so that I can add links.

I must apologise for the awful photos, they all seem to have a blue tinge, even though the cards are white, it was a pretty miserable day when I photographed them but I had to get them done so that I could pass the cards on to Mei.

For this one I drew some lines in Photoshop, then printed them out, added the different sized stick on gems randomly along each group of lines, a different colour for each set, with randomly placed die-cut flowers in matching colours. If you want to have a go yourself then here is the template I made for the lines, just right click and save, re-size as needed, print it out and bling away.

For this second card I measured and marked the line spacing down the edges of a piece of  14 x 14cm card, drawing the lines very lightly in pencil, I printed the letters out on various polka dot digital papers and used a circle punch to cut them out. The letters were added to each line with foam pads and then I fixed stick on gems of the same colour centrally along each line.
Although I did my letters and wording digitally, they could just as easily be done with rubber stamps.

Thanks for dropping in,
Colette xx
