Time for the Stampman

I didn't think I'd have time for this months swap with the Stampman as inspiration was lacking, but a new set of stamps landed on my door mat this morning and wow had a flash of inspiration :)
I've used the birds from inkadinkado and the clock and sentiment from Kelly Panacci .The clock faces are cut from backgrounds I made a while back , distress inks at the corner and chalks with Versmark for the birds

Last Wedding card

I have used one of the cuttlebug boarder embossing folders on this card .embossed 4 times inked and then cut out, I then over lapped at the corners to make the square, Used the Nelli die to cut the shapes and just hilighted the edges with the same colour ink .

Tuesday Taggers

I've not long finished these for a swap and thought they would be very nice for the sunshine challenge on Tuesday Taggers

Oriental atc's

I've made these for a swap on the Lots to do forum

Sunday, 8 August 2010

This is for a recipe swap on a forum I run, we have to use corrugated card, peel offs and lace or feathers, all things I think we have lurking in the back of the cupboard, so I'm going to use it for the Lots to Do Challenge as well, a bit simple but sometimes that's good :)

A Wedding card

I don't get asked to make cards very often so was pleased they didn't want anything soppy or gushy, so hope this fits the bill, there is still one more to make .
All the cutting has been done on my Silhoutette and I've used paper for the flowers and card for the word. The background is brayed and stamped onto photo paper I know not recommended but want to see if the cheap stuff from pound land worked well id does if you happy to wait days for it to dry and I used as little ink as possible...........just wondering if I should put a few gems in the center of the flowers at the corners
