Loads of Love

This is a card I don't overly like but I am putting it up and will be puting an improved version

when I do it. This was the first attempt at this stamp set and I really like how I have compleated the stamp, what I dislike is the way I did the ribbon and the really dark background. To colour in the car I used a blender pen and write and stamp pens. The trafic lights are simply the small circle punch in three colours.

The Below card is a revise of what I did above in a chicky colouring. I prefer this one!!

Eastern Blooms Birthday Card

My brothers lass who is really nice had a birthday and I made her a card but have forgotten to give it to her so here it is Georgie enjoy!

I used eastern blooms for this card the stamp set is really versatile and I have used it ALLOT.

the border around the edge I did by hand and a ruler I used the write pens to ink the background flower stem.

I really like this card and will be selling it at my next market stall.

Flying the Country

Back from Sunny Melbourne and back to my old life rather missing the shopping and coffee but I guess you can't have it all. The Summer mini is on its last legs before it is superseded by the Autumn-Winter mini and I have a small preview for you all. I have used the new Two Step Bird punch and have tried a few different ideas some did not work and others I loved and have turned them into swaps and will be demoing them in my next classes at Posh Box where we will be doing a card stack three cards twice over in all six cards. Over all I was happy with the results.

Stamp sets: Priceless
Card Stock Mellow Moss, Rose Red, Very Vanilla, Chocolate chip
Inks Mellow Moss, Rose Red, Chocolate chip
Accessories Rose Red Gross Grain Ribbon, Two Step Bird Punch.

In this card I have distressed the bottom edge of the Very Vanilla and inked it in Mellow moss as well as stamping the big swirl on the chocolate chip and Vanilla card stock. The Rose Red ribbon was simply knotted but you could also swallow tail the ends.
