Nature Walk and Just Believe

Although this one is very simple and had no layers I still like it..the background has been stamped with En Francais and I used markers to stamp the flower images..I added the birdcage from Nature walk and inked up the bees for the first time...sure it wan't be the last!

Pop Up Stage Card

One of my lovely stamp class ladies loaned me this cute polar bear die and straight away I thought of Kim Scores pop up stage technique here. The trees are from a retired set and the greeting is from Heard From The Heart. So much fun to make, everyone who sees it loves it...
For teh front of the card I used one of the trees from Lovely as a Tree to make the branches and the baubles are from Tree Trimmings

A Wish For Peace

This is such a pretty stamp set...a friend loaned it to me so I could make a few cards. For this one I embossed the background mat (crumbcake) with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and sponged it with Crumbcake ink. The image was stamped on the front panel with Crumcake and the sentiment was stamped with versamark ink and embossed in gold..I added some Tiny Tags to the organza ribbon

Friends 24-7 Pyramid Card

I made this for a challenge over at Late Night Stampers...I was inspired by the blues and greens in the inspiration piece. I googled 'Pyramid Card" to see how these were made...easy peasy! The stamp set I used was Friends 24-7 and the card stock is Certainly Celery
*I have had people ask how to make these so here is a link to a tutorial..its one of many http://thecraftypad.blogspot.com/2011/07/tutorial-how-to-make-teepee-card.html

Fun and Fast Notes Baby Card

I hardly ever use this set,,,it's a shame because there are so many nice images...this is a quick baby card using the pram from Fun and Fast Notes. I have used small buttons for the wheels and added a few punched flowers and some leaves from the XL Bird punch

Christmas in July with Tree Trimmings

I have mixed both traditional and non traditional colours for this Xmas card... Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist. The tree branch is from a retired set, baubles are from Tree Trimmings, the greeting is from Snow swirled and the ribbon is from my stash...I have about 30 metres of this blue organza I am trying to use up!

Sew Suite TuTu Card

I have had fun playing around with scraps of tulle! I have used Baroque Motifs for the background stamped in Pink Pirouette on both the card base and the whisper white panel. The dress form from Sew Suite was stamped on the white panel and again onto pink dsp...I cut out the form from the dsp omitting the stand and cutting away a neckline and stuck it onto the card stamped side down so you can't see the stamped lines...the tulle was a strip approx 6 inches x 1.5 inches folded in half lengthways and hand stitched across teh top with a gathering stitch..I added a bow to hide the stitching
