CAS Quartet

I started playing with the flowers of the Alexandra Renke Welcome Butterfly set ... and I ended up with four cards!

I wasn't sure what I was going to do so I stamped 2 sets of the flower with leaf, and the 2 individual flowers.  The flowers had two tones of inks : started with the pale pink, then dabbed on a darker shade to the centre.

I like the curve of the flowers and leaf and thought it would look good along a frame.  I wanted to keep it light so used 2 of the Alexandra Renke Oval Angular frames.

The second card was inspired by the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. I wanted the bigger flower and cut out the leaves of the flower & leaf images.

Now that I had that little flower with 2 little leaves left ... and a tiny piece of ric rac ribbon, thought it was perfect for the CAS(e) This Sketch Challenge.

All I had left now was one big and 2 little flowers. Used the middle piece left over from the lace frame and added 2 die cut leaves.

Christmas Baubles

Going with the new slimline card size... I loved that I had lots of space to have the baubles hanging.

I used silver string to hang my baubles.

In order to hide the string behind, I made a little tag with the bauble that fell off the tree!

Christmas in July

My second Christmas card for this year.  Using the fun summery SSS Warm Christmas Wishes set - perfect for Christmas in July, and perfect for sending from Mauritius come Christmas time. It's a NBUS for me.

A little masking to keep it to a one layer card. 

Some enamel accents to give the lights some pop.

Fun Girlfriends

I had a request for fun Birthday cards and my first thought was the Art Impressions Girlfriends!

Then I got this idea in my head that I wanted them peeping out beyond the circle. So that meant some serious fussy cutting.

I love adding paper piecing to this kind of image.  It gives that extra dimension and texture to the colouring.

More Mini Wishes

While I had the stamps out from this card, it was so much fun I had to make some more.  This time I went with the presents instead of the balloons.

And decided the road need not be so steep!
