Faith in Nature

The Hostess sets are all so nice this year! I have stamped the pear in Versamark and embossed with black embossing powder then watercolouredin Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and More Mustard. I have used pleated First Edition specialty paper across the bottom and machine stitched through it and added a seam binding bow in Very Vanilla

Up, Up, and Away!

Cool stamp set!! I used a scallop circle as a template to sponge the clouds and tore some dsp to make teh foreground. After stamping the balloons I sponged them on one side to make them look more dimensional

Bingo Card

I bought this Bingo Card background stamp to use with my xmas bingo bits stamps but went a bit outside of the box for this card which could be used for wedding ,engagement, anniversary or valentines. The bird is from Notably Ornate, the hearts are from I heart Hearts and the floral thingo is from Vintage Vogue. Not to everyones taste but something a bit different
