Fab Flowers

I treated myself to this Fab Flowers stamp set by Lawn Fawn, and chose to make this card using some warm colours...

I used Memento Dew Drop inks, hand cut them out and layered them to make this bouquet.
The text paper is MME's Stella Rose 'Mabel' (an old, retired collection).
The sentiment is a Birthday Banners die by Tonic Studios.

Inlaid roses

I bought a rose die recently, I wanted to make a clean card for my friend's birthday using just white card, the die, promarkers, and a greeting. Oh and a few Nuvo drops to finish...

I die cut the rose 3 times from the same base card, overlapping the bottom 2 roses, then coloured the inner pieces with Promarkers. I added double-sided tape to another piece of card and attached it to the inner side of the front of the card, exposing the areas where the die cuts needed to puzzle piece back into place.
It's by no means perfect, but I like it, and that's the whole point of a handmade card anyway. I'll be having another go at this technique soon.

Football Bears

I do love Lili of the Valley's cute images, and these Football Bears are no exception...

I don't think you can buy this stamp from the website anymore, I bought mine from their Ebay outlet shop.
I coloured the bears in West Bromwich Albion's colours for a friend who's a fan of the club (We won't mention the terrible season they're having eh?)
Paper is Stella Rose 'Hattie' by MME.
Die cut football is an old Quickutz one (Soccer Ball).

Adorable Elephants

Hello! I'm a bit late, but .. Happy 2018 to you all xx

I'm back with a card that I've made for my friend's daughter...

I've used images from the aptly named Adorable Elephants stamp set by My Favorite Things. I had to do a bit of masking to add the balloons, and coloured the final image with Promarkers, adding spectrum noir clear glitter to the balloons and butterflies.
The sentiment is Birthday Banners die by Tonic Studios, I also added glitter to the lettering.
The bright, fun, pretty paper is by Doodlebug (Hello Sunshine).

Thanks for looking xx
