Magnolia new release

          Yet again Magnolia have come up with a wonderful selection of stamps,but I am biased cos they're my favorite and are the stamps I use the most

      This one is using 'Tilda with big balloon' which I've coloured using copics

I have left a gap behind the image so the 2 tags can be inserted

theses have been trimmed with lace and tied with ribbon.

Im sorry but I cant remember which papers I used
but they have been edged with Tim Holtz walnut stain.
The flowers are supplied by wild orchid crafts
ribbons,lace and beading from Live and Love crafts.
I've used a go kreate die for some of the back ground shapes
along with spellbinders. 
The icecream sundae
 is a combination of the ice cream toppings die and cup and saucer die from Tattered Lace.

                A new year a new start!!,or I'm hoping. I've neglected my blog and have made a promise to myself to post at least once a month?

 but for now I hope these cards will make up for it and, though its a bit off for us in the uk, I've been trying to get more organised this year and have made some Mothers day cards

  So here we are ....


This is a booklet style card
which has been decorated using
die cuts :-
la la land heart banner
tattered lace shoe
sizzix hearts
martha stewart border punch
memory box heart
Tim Holtz butterfly border
and doo hickey dies.
In the centre is a pocket and tag for that personal message.
Papers used are from Lily of The Valley edged with walnut stain
ribbons,a heart charm,ric rac and lace add the finishing touch
  Ribbon is used to tie the 'booklet' closed.

This next card is the same style but shows the different effect using brighter papers can make

The postage stamps are from whimsical stamps
flowers wild orchid crafts.
Dies used are

spellbinders heart
tattered lace
doo hickey tag
