Today a card using my favourite pastel colours – white, pale pink and pale lilac. The spellbinders dies used are Timeless rectangle, and I added some prima flowers, satin ribbon and lilac liquid pearls. The sentiment which i stamped in chocolate brown is from a stampin up set – wonderful mother.Next time I do this one – and there will be a next time – I am going to emboss the background mat.I have had a hugely productive day in the craft room today – making boys birthday cards. I picked up 5 sheets of Bo Bunny Surprise paper, and have so far made 10 cards with it – the ideas just keep flowing – got to love days like today! Til tomorrow….

I am hoping the photo comes up with this post – things are not right, but Nathan is otherwise occupied so we will carry on, and he may have to fix things later. A little while ago I did a youtube video on how I colour my stamped images, and this is the stamp I was colouring with distress inks, and what happened to it after the camera was turned off! I had a couple of coloured images so I cut into one of them to create a 3d topper, and then matted it onto Stampin up cardstock – Wisteria Wonder and Pink Pirouette. The embossing folder was Craft Concepts Cottage Florals, the stamp was Kaszazz Large Fuschia stamp and I finished of the card with some ribbon and perfect pearls.Must go as tea is ready, til tomorrow….

Here is a card I designed for a previous village lesson, using mainly stampin Up products. The embossing folder is Couture Creations Cottage florals, and the rest of the products used are all stampin Up – Poppy Parade, so saffron, whisper white, old olive and certaianly celery cardstock,Decorative labels punch, bird punch, Four frames stamp set, language of friendship stamp set ,little leaves die, and a flower punch. I added liquid pearls to the centre of the flowers.What I like about this card is the fact that once I had stamped the bird, it cut out perfectly with the punch, and the pattern lifts it. I had a lovely morning over at paper Flourish setting up our August lesson – I love it when a plan falls into place and I am looking farward to teaching that class! Now, back in the craft room I am working on Fathers day cards, only another dozen or so to go… Til tomorrow….

Still using the 6″ pad from Kaisercraft The Lake House,I fussy cut around the flower sheet, and also cut a couple of extra flowers to pop on top with mounting squares. I added some ribbon, a stick pin, and flower, and used some liquid pearls and kindyglitz to decorate, and also slipped in a die cut from the matching collectables pack.The cardstock is Stampin Up Early Espresso.I am busy this week coming up with some lesson ideas,but also very busy at work, so a bit tired when I get home, already looking forward to the weekend when I intend to craft a lot!

With my cuttlebug I cut a memory box Fauntleroy crest and a couple of flowers with my sizzix tim holtz tattered flower garland die.The greeting is stamped using a stamp from my stampin Up perfectly penned set.I think all the travelling has caught up with me today as I am a bit tired, so I will have a break from the card room tonight and watch some T.V.

A very late post today, but today has just escaped from me and Nathan and I have just finished photoing my cards, which we usually do on a Sunday morning. This means the light was not good and to avoid putting up Nathans photo tent (which is impossible to fold back up) I was in the dark under the dining table which he assured me was the best place to take said photos.We will see when he has put them on the computer. Anyway on to todays card. No pretty papers today! Bazzil cardstock which i ran through the cuttlebug with my swiss dots embossing folder, and spellbinders dress forms die ( cut from a bit of a cereal packet and painted with crackle paint) The pretty lace is actually a curtain remnat, and the flowers were cut with my cricut and the flower shoppe cartridge.All that was needed then was a bit of ribbon, a paper flower and some liquid pearls.That’s it for today, but will see you all tomorrow. Til tomorrow…….

Here is the final Prima meadow Lark card! Although as we speak the collection is sitting on my work table as I am still doing orders and that paper was asked for on two of the cards, so I am not done with it yet although I probably won’t post any more cards with it. Here I really let the paper do the talking – I just couldn’t bring myself to cut into this pretty paper so I made a feature of it instead, fussy cutting around the design and just adding a butterfly ( memory box dies kaliedascope and moonlight butterfly) and some lace and liquid pearls. Tomorrow I think we will have some male cards! Til tomorrow….

This is a very early post for me today, but I wanted to put up this special card, as it was made for my cousin who is getting married today – Best wishes Karen and Danny – It was going in the post so I had to really restrict my inner blingness, and the Bridesmaids dresses are red so I wanted to incorporate that too. I used pearlescent card, and the stamped image and sentiment are from Stampin Up Marry Me set. The cardstock is Stampin Up real red. I used my cuttlebug swiss dots folder, stampin Up bird punch for the leaves, and Martha Stewart Hydrangea punches for the flowers. Liquid pearls – hope they are o.k. in the post – and assorted lace finished it off. Now I am off to te craft room to do an order that has just come through and needed for tonight… Til tomorrow….

On todays card have made the greeting the focus of the card. I used Stampin Up pool party and blushing bride cardstock, and My Minds Eye Howdy Doody patterned paper. The punches were Martha stewart doily lace, butterflys, and fern leaves. I added some lace and liquid pearls, and rubbed a couple of the butterflies over a versamark ink pad and brushed them with gold perfect pearls ( powder) which gave them a lovely gold colour, and I will be trying this again with my other colours in the perfect pearls range.The Stamp set I used was Stampin Up elementry Elegance, and I gold embossed the frame, and stamped the greeting inside it. Over the past couple of days I have been making male cards, so today I gladly got out the lace, ribbon and bling and had a great time creating some really feminine cards, and I will be back in the craft room tonight as I have a couple of unfinished cards on my table…. Til tomorrow….
