Your Dreams

This is another card created with the Graphic 45 Princess Collection.


I have used several of the papers, backed with cream card stock, along with a topper and a border.  I fussy cut some additional flowers so that I could add some dimension to the topper and made some matching card candi from the cream card stock.

Moss Rose

I have some more old stash to share today, I created this card using my Stamperia Winter Botanic collection.


I love the collage style papers that Stamperia always include in their collections.  I used a pretty vintage rose image, along with a sentiment that is also part of the collection - I inked the edges of everything to continue the vintage feel and coloured some green twine, that I am unlikely to use, with a dark brown alcohol pen.

Multi Colour Birthday

This is another of the cards that I created using the new Crafter's Companion Border and Word Dies.


I cut the border from five different colours of textured card stock, layered them all onto a different coloured base and paper pieced the sentiment using the spare letters from the die cuts - quite simple but rather time consuming doing the paper piecing.

Hoppy Easter - Twofer

I've managed to make a couple of cards to enter into this months Twofer Card Challenge, the theme is Spring Animals.


As soon as I saw the theme I thought of my Tim Holtz Cottontail dies and decided to create an Easter card and a New Baby card.

I cut the dies twice for the Easter card and used papers from the Sara Signature Rustic Wedding collection!  The flowers are Tim Holtz again, they are called Wildflower Stems - I'm not sure where the sentiment die and stamp came from.


For the New Baby card I used the same die and papers from the Forever Friends New Arrival paper pad, I just added a sentiment and some hand made card candi.


I would like to enter these cards into the Twofer Card Challenge #25 - Spring Animals.
