Green and white Garden Silhouette

I think this must be one of the easiest to make, I covered my base card in bottle green cardstock and then cut a piece of white cardstock into 3 pieces I put one piece through the cuttlebug using swiss dots embossing folder I then attached the 3 pieces leaving a space between each piece,

I stamped 3 different images on white cardstock using Stampin Up 'garden silhouette' stamps, I punched them out with Stampin Up round punch and then using bottle green cardstock I punched out 3 larger circles using Stampin Up scallop punch, I glued my stamped images to the green scalloped circles and attached them to my card with mounting foam,

I made the ribbon bow with my home made ribbon bow maker and attached it to the card.

Stem Silhouettes

I love these silhouette stamps so simple yet so refreshing, the card here looks so clean and fresh I love it...I have started with my base white card and then added moss green on top of that, I stamped a piece of white cardstock with one of Stampin Up's 'stem silhouette' I cut this into 3 equal parts and adhered this directly to the moss green spacing it equally apart but at the same time attaching the satin ribbon and bow,

I stamped the daisy image with marker pens on white square cardstock and coloured it in with coloured pencils (don't know the name of the stamp) I used glitter glue to give the flower a sparkle,

I cut out a square piece of pink cardstock and a square piece of moss green cardstock and attached my stamped image to these, I then used mounting foam to attach this to my main card

More of 'Embrace Life'

I'm trying to keep my cards in order of the stamps used so here another card using Stampin Up 'embrace life' I love these colours and hope you like them too,

The base colour is more a maroon red and then topped with striped paper in shades of red, green, pale pink and deep coloured pink,

I used a spellbinders label die to cut out the moss green cardstock then a smaller spellbinders label die to cut the pink paper, I added some green satin ribbon before I attached these to the striped paper,

The 3 flowers were created using Stampin Up embrace life stamp and coloured with water coloured pencils, I adhered these to give a 3d effect...the sentiment was from Stampin up 'short and sweet' sayings

Embrace Life

Another treat for you, this card was also simple to make and ideal for several occassions, eg; Wedding Anniversary, Birthday or just an everyday wish.

I cut out a circle on a piece of dusty pink coloured cardstock and a piece of cream coloured cardstock, I embossed the cream coloured cardstock with my cuttlebug embossing folder, I then attached the dusty pink cardstock direct to my base card, I attached the cream coloured cardstock with foam mounts,

The flowers were from Stamping up 'embrace life' I stamped 3 of these and then cut around them and attached them with foam dots, the sentiment was also from Stampin Up.

Black and white or white on black

Hi everyone,

Here is another card using the Stanpin Up 'pocket silhouette stamp' nice and simple,

I covered my white base card with black cardstock which has been punched down one side with Martha Stewart doily lace border punch, I then topped this with sqaure white cardstock, on top of this I added a black square which had been punched on all 4 sides with Martha Stewart doily lace border punch, on a piece of white square cardstock I stamped the pocket silhouette image and added this as my final with white polka dot grosgrain ribbon was attached beneath the image to give the finishing touch,.

I have not added a sentiment that will be added as and when required.

Pocket Silhouette

Hello everyone,

It's quite some time since I uploaded some cards and today I managed to find some time to scan and share with you some of the cards I have made recently, the card shown here was made using SU binder punch on the borders and SU pocket silhouette and small sayings stamps...the button was bought from Spotlight(West Australia)I was amazed how the button resembles the silhouette stamp, I used olive green, mango and sand coloured cardstock on top of my white base card.
