Clover


 
This card features a digi stamp from Pollycrafts (long gone now) which I have coloured with promarkers.  The papers are from Nitwits.  I found an old button which I thought would look good in the middle of my paper flower (I believe that the button is even older than me...).  The ribbon bow and bug are from my stash.

Bug & Butterflies



This card is a bit different from my usual ones.

First I die cut the leaf scroll into my base card along with a die cut butterfly.  I then chalked around the apertures before adding a scrap of stripy paper behind.  I then replaced the butterfly and added a small punched one.  I stamped and chalked a sentiment, layered it and attached with foam pads.  Last but not least, I added a die cut ladybird and added crystal glaze to give it some shine.

Holly



For this card I started with a navy base card and onto this I added some die cut squares with paper from Nitwits.  Next I added my image from Wee Stamps and coloured her with promarkers and stickles, again cutting and layering her with die cuts.  To finish I attached some punched snowflakes with brad centres.

A Summer Scene



Here is a little scene made from recent magazine freebies using the packaging as the background.

I embossed the background with the tree folder and coloured it with promarkers making the tree scratchy like bark.  The rest is simply stamped.

Baby Boy



This is the first time I have tried to cut an oval card base and it turns out that it was easier to do than I thought, duh!

My image is from Julia Spiri and has been coloured with promarkers.  (I adore these cute baby images).  There is a girl as well but this one could look like a girl if you change the colours and add a bow to the hair.  Anyway, the background paper is from Nitwits and I have added a bow with a teddy button.

Teacup Tilly



Here is Teacup Tilly from Besties and I have coloured her with promarkers.  The floral background papers are from Nitwits and I have added a cream ribbon before placing some cream buttons threaded with blue ribbon (recycled from clothes).  The sentiment is from my stash.  Lastly I added some punched flowers and leaves with pearl centres.

Relax...



A nice relaxing card this time featuring a sweet Penny Black stamp which I have coloured with pencils and added a stamped word.  The background paper is from Nitwits and the sentiment from LOTV.  I have added some navy ribbon to the border panel.  The flowers are made up from paper daisies with lace daisies on top.
