I've Been Busy.....

Hi just a few cards to show you.  Hope you enjoy looking.  It'll be a quick upload and then off today I'm afraid.  Lol

This is the first easel card I've attempted to make.  I used Penny Wessenauer's Sunflower 3D sheet, used my Cuttlebug to cut the matting for the sentiment and a few amber gems. I think its quite a "warm" looking card if you understand my meaning.

The next three cards...or I should say two cards and an ATC were all made with elements from the one 3D sheet...Penny Wessenauer's  'Sapphire Rose' sheet.  I wasn't really being frugal its just that I couldn't find a suitable image for the first card so 'pinched' one of the elements and it was perfect for the card.  Lol 

Another one of my "I want to do's".....this time using stitching on a card.  I've been wanting to try a "stitched" card for a while now so for my first attempt at one I used a stitching pattern from Prick and Stitch...just a simple border of embroidery with added beads to help accentuate it.  The base card I cut on my Robo from a template by Lindyloulou (UKScrappers).  The image is one element from the sheet mentioned earlier.  To make the "Happy Birthday" wording stand out more I backed the front of the card with one of the backing papers that compliment the 'Sapphire Rose' sheet.


The second card was made with the decoupage element of the same sheet....using a complimentary backing paper of Penny's...ribbon and a few gems to finish off with.  I really love the image.

Lastly the ATC I made with the mini images on the sheet.  I haven't made an ATC for an age so when I saw the mini images I thought why not give it a go!  Lol   Quite like it myself.  Lol

Well thats it for this visit...sorry it was a bit rushed but will be back soon...hopefully with a bit more time.  

Bye for now...take care!!
