My recent cards - July / August

Hi everyone,

As I mentioned in my last post, I went to our team members' Stamp Camp recently where we made lots of team 'Swap' cards. Just prior to leaving for the camp, I was feeling very inspired so made a few cards that week - I'd like to share a couple of them with you.

This first one is a pretty floral one I designed using one of the Level 1 Hostess sets - Organic Grace.

I stamped the background with the fern leaf and dragon fly stamps using Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss inks then added a little glitter to the dragonfly wings.

The main image is the floral branch from the set which was stamped on white card then mounted onto Baja Breeze card and then onto some brushed gold card.

I added some sheer spotted white ribbon across the lower part of the base card and tied some around the main mounted image too. The main image was then attached to the base card using some 3D foam squares.

I then stamped the greeting using the Oval All set from the Summer Mini catalogue, punched it out with the large oval punch and then attached it to a gold scalloped oval which I had made using the new oval punch, also from the Summer Mini.

To finish off the card, I added some glitter to the floral image and an adhesive pearl to the greeting.

My second card was a little bit of 'fun' which I designed while playing around with some of the DS papers in the main catalogue.

I love flamingos and couldn't resist cutting out this image from one of the DS sheets in the Pink Flamingo set. I then dressed it up with some 'bling' - I used self adhesive gems for the flower centres and the bird's eye and added some glitter to the tall flower.

The background paper from the same DS set was a perfect match for the 3D flowers. I cut out the corners of the pink paper with a circle punch before attaching it to the Baha Breeze cardstock then added a gem in each corner.

The butterfly and greeting (from the Great Friend set in the Summer Mini) were stamped on white card then cut out and attached to the base card with 3D foam squares.

I then added some glitter to the centre of the butterfly and also around the edges of the greeting frame.

I had cut out a piece of Baha Breeze card using the Word Window punch and attached it to the pink background paper before covering it with the greeting.

I added an adhesive pearl to the blue strip to finish off the card.

These two cards turned out very well - I hope you like them.

In my next post I'll show you some Christmas cards I made too - please drop by again to see those.

Thanks for stopping by - hope you'll come back again soon!

'Bye for now.
