Mothers Day Card

Again this is cased from strappystamper. I love the cocoa and soft sky together. I had to do a bit of modifying as I didn't have the right size cirle punches. I made a little scalloped bottom piece and stamped it with the little flowers. I used a blender pen to colour in the image from Kind Thoughts. I traced inside of the stamping on the soft sky in a white gel pen to give it some depth and contrast. I used my first piece of cuttlebug paper in the cocoa. Now, the name is escaping me at the moment on the name of the folder, but it's one of my fabs. I don't even own one yet, but have bought 2 and have lent them to my dear creative and talented friend I really enjoyed working with these colours and this layout. This is a nice elegant set to use for really special cards. Have a great day! The sun is shining and the girls are in school today, so it'll be great for me. :o)

Debbie's 50th Bday Card

I saw this beautiful card made by strappystamper and I just had to case it. I love the layout and the colours. I had borrowed the Kind Thoughts stamp set from a great friend and didn't know what to do with it. I found all I needed for inspiration on scs. I used purely pom, soft sky and blk. I'm sad that S.U. is once again getting rid of the in colours. It would be great if they would keep a few of each and bring them into the new catty's. I better stock up in June! The biggest piece of soft sky is the patterned paper. I was all out of linen purely pom, so had to replace with just the regular paper. I really enjoyed copying strappystampers card and after I had made another card that I'll post next, I realized this was one of her creations too! If she hasn't already been a featured stamper on the scs weekly newsletter, I definitely think she should be! Thanks for stopping by! I know I don't update this enough. Cheers!
