Today's card features a stamp that I have had a number of years, and I go back to it every so often. I stamped and embossed with detail black EP, and also stamped again on a snippet of pretty blue card. I fussy cut it and raised it with mounting tape over one of the images. I also added black 'enamel effects' in the centre.

Bits and Bobs!

Today's card features this lovely poppy stamp from Crafty Individuals. I chose to only colour the flower, as I wanted it to really stand out. I used a white ink pad and a Paper Artsy stamp to make the background splatters, and added a piece of ribbon, a piece of lace and some red bling.

I found the background piece in my experiments box, but can't remember exactly how I made it!
The stamps are by Tim Holtz, including my new 'bird crazy' set and I used bleach to take the colour away from this very studious bird.

Today's card features my Leafy Vines stamp from Hero Arts, embossed with detail white EP on black card, and layered onto an orange card base. I have also stamped onto a snippet of orange, 2 butterflies from Kaisercraft, and added Wink of Stella to their wings. I used flower stamens for the feelers, and coloured them with copics to match.

Je t'aime

I totally cased the example from the back of the stamp package for this card, but reversing the card colour, and the first layer. The stamp is by Penny Black and I coloured it with my copics. The red layer is a new (to me) embossing folder that I thought went with the French theme.
I used up a few snippets from my large boxful for the stamped image and the white layers.
