Floral Silhouette

I wanted to do more than use this stamp as a sihouette image so I stamped it using versafine smokey grey and then coloured the image using crayola pencils,

I cut the stamped and coloured image using Spellbinders oval nestabilities and then using green cardstock I cut a larger oval and adhered my image to it,

I took some blue cardstock and punched all 4 corners using an EK Success punch, I then cut some white cardstock to a size which fit comfortably under the punched corners and then embossed it, next I added my grosgrain ribbon, attached my image with mounting foam and a sentiment using Stampin up Short and Sweet stamps, finished off with a couple of pearls and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly with a bit of glitter added and 3 pearls to its body.

Nice "n Easy

These cards were all made using the same technique but different punches, I found these cards quick and easy to make and ideal as a gift pack or a donation to your favourite charity,

The punches used were Stampin Up, Martha Stewart, EK Success, Fiskars, Whale of a punch and Spellbinders Nestabilities,

The Sentiment was computer generated.

Punch 'n Cut

Hi everyone,

I made this birthday card yesterday and thought I'd share it with you,

I started with my white base card and sponged around the edge in purple ink, I then took a piece of yellow cardstock 0.5cm smaller than my base card on all 4 sides, next I took a piece of white cardstock 0.5cm smaller than the yellow card on all 4 sides and I cut out a 5.5cm circle and used Martha Stewart's fan punch to punch around the cut out circle I then embossed the white cardstock and sponged around the edges with the same purple ink that I used for my base card, I adhered the embossed card to the yellow cardstock

I made the flower using spellbinders sunflower die and coloured the flower with chalks, I layered the flower and attached it to the centre of my cut out circle,

I attach a ribbon bow and then mounted this to my base card.

Thanks for dropping by and please call again
