Same card - 2 looks!

Using SU True Friend stamp set, i made the following 2 cards, both the same, but so different with colour and the monochromatic look. They both have the same insert, which i used Martha Stewart punch for the edging and stamped the image and sentiment inside to match.

Using SU gable green card stock, i inked the edges in SU Old Olive ink pad, stamped the images using SU certainly Celery and Lavender Lace and mounted onto co-ordinating cardstock, glittered the points on the flowers and added some SU Old olive ribbon.

Same card, but inked up in SU Basic Black ink and mounted onto SU Basic Black card stock and some pearlised card i had in stash. I used some black ribbon from stash and used silver glitter glue to add to the flowers

Insert, same in both cards.

Seeing spots

Materials used:
Seeing Spots Roller stamp

Seeing Spots set of 6 stamps

Chocolate Chip ink pad

Tempting Turquioise Stampin' write marker

(all products used are available to purchase from myself if you wish too)

Using sheet of white card, i used the stampin spots roller stamp to roll down the side of the card, then randomly stamped images onto the side with the set of spots stamps.
I created a topper using the same stamps to create a random pattern and matt and layered onto a piece of brown card which has been embossed using cuttlebug embossing folder. I stamped individual flowers, punched them out and using the blue, i coloured in some of the centres of the circles and the flowers, also used some blue glitter glue which was a perfect match!
I finished off the inside with one of the stamps from the stampin ovals (thank you stamp), and thats about it!
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you soon
Take care

Garden Whimsy Stamp set

Using Stampin Up Garden Whimsy stamps, i made this card. I inked up the flowers using 2 different inks and stamped them in a row, stamped and cut out the butterfly and used the verse as a border down the side. Used nesties for the matt n layer parts and SU punches for the verse topper parts, the oval and the scallop - these punches are just fab! such a lovely size for a verse to be stamped on.
Hopefully get some more cards done soon, have been busy with all sorts lately and havent really had enough time to play with all my goodies!
take care and see you back here soon
