Purple Blooms

This is the first card I've made from my new Stamping Up stamps.  The card is made using the Pretty Petals range.  I just love this stamp.  I stamped the flowers all over the purple textured background card and then mounted it on lilac silk art card which I punched on either side with an EK Success punch. This was all mounted on silver mirri paper. The ribbon is from a selection from DoCrafts. To tie-in the sentiment I stamped it on the same purple textured card and then mounted it on the lilac silk art card.  The sentiment is from the Daisy and Dandelion range.  I rounded the corners with an X-Cut corner rounder punch.

I just love the Tatty Button images and when they became available on Create and Craft as an interactive CD-ROM and stamp sheets, I bought them straight away!  This is the first card I have made using the pre-loaded pyrimage on the CD.  To make this card I used the Cricut to cut the card blank and covered with spring themed paper. The Tatty Button pyrimage was printed on supersmooth decoupage paper and layered using foam pads. I added ribbon from a selection of green ribbons by DoCrafts and stamped Happy Birthday in green to finish the card off.

Happy Mothers Day

This is the mothers day card that I gave to my Mam last Sunday.  Dad even thought I had bought it!  Surely he knows I don't buy cards anymore!

The design came from the My Craft Studio Encyclopedia of Card and Papercraft Templates and Folds (Picture Window card).  Once I had printed out the elements it was just a case of cutting and sticking whilst following the instructions.  Very easy to follow and I used a wooden stamp for the greeting to finish it off.

Give It Some Welly!

I was asked to help out at a local Brownies meeting with a card for Mothers Day so this was my first idea to see what would work.  The Wellington boot template was bought from (only 99p) and used with free papers from Quick Cards Made Easy issue 84.  Diamond sparkles added to give definition to the top and bottom of the boot.  Sentiment stamped onto white card and cut out using Spellbinder Labels 4, chalked around the outer edge using ColourBox fluid chalk inkpad in Pink Pastel and added using foam pads.
