Me again!

Hello, back again!

Whilst I've been off line I've not stopped buying stamps and things - well you can't can you? :o))

So being a member of Crafters' Companion I was offered Souffle the Duck CD and stamps using some of my loyalty stamps.  Too good an offer to miss.  So this is a card I've made with that.

I already had a Popcorn the Bear CD and just made this card from some bits left over from some of the decoupage.

I also had some freebie papers from Creative Cardmaking magazine, which I love, so I made this card for one of the girl's birthdays at work.  She was chuffed with it and I felt a bit guilty as I made it out of freebies, but you couldn't tell.

I even used a bit of the freebie 'ribbon' to embellish the insert page too.  Well I could afford to, couldn't I?

Then, of course I HAD to buy the new Jayne Nesterenko Duo's Stamp sets and here are a couple of cards I made with them.  They really are lovely and I am very pleased with them. 

Using the Wishing Line set of stamps,  I stamped  the trees in the background direct to card and coloured in with watercolours.  The the little mice I stamped, coloured, cut out and stuck onto the card and then I stamped the little mouse again, coloured him in, punched him out with a circle punch and then used glossy accents to give a sheen to it, and then matched the circle with the rest of the card.  I have to admit, the circle bit took me longer than I thought, but it'll probably be easier next time!  The flowers I just sparkled using Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle and then glittered as well.

I was very pleased with this one and shall experiment a bit more using other stamps.  What do you think?

Finally using the Crafting Companions stamp set I made this one.

This one is so simple but very effective.  Again this can be used in several ways and different colours but I think this looks very elegant.

Well I'm off to do some more card-making.  Enjoy your weekend.  xx

Lovely cards Liz - I love how you have used the circle punch to accent one part of your design - I must remember to experiment with that as it looks very effective.

Thank you Karen. I'd seen it on another card and thought I'd give it a go. I was pleased with it. x
