Niece's Birthday Card....

Today's card is one that I made for my niece's birthday.  It is pink and girly for a 6 year old!  Very simply made with a Kanban stamped image, then coloured in with my promarkers. Ribbon and sentiment added.

Spring Yellow...........

Yesterday I was inspired by two blogs to create my finished card.  I firstly looked at Elaine Wheeler's blog and saw that she was brave and used yellow, so I thought, maybe I can do that? Next, I was inspired by Clare Buswell's blog where she has a tutorial on paper ruffles which are beautiful and I will try out this week, but I actually used ribbon, sewed it onto my card for a floaty, elegant look over a simple stamped background and added my sentiment.
I like the result! To add a little more texture, I added an insert with a lovely border using a Martha Stewart punch.

Pink And Girly.........

Good Afternoon all,
Today's card is very simple, pink and girly.  Sometimes, quick cards are a must! I simply added a chipboard embellishment and some ribbon. The background paper was pretty enough with glitter accents already added.

Simple but effective......................

Vintage Theme....

Today I have recreated a card that I made for a friend last year.  As I was having a small tidy up on my craft desk, I came across this stamp and had to use it once again! I opted for soft colouring using my distress inks and a water brush.

The flower was easily made with several die cut layers of paper, then spritzing them with water and slowly drying them with my heat tool.  A nice finishing touch!
