For you Orange and Teal card (The Stamping Chef image)

Hi everyone,

I have gone crazy mad creating again hehe, I can't keep away and if I do begrudgingly have to take a break because of work and/or family commitments, I end up cramming at some other time!

This is the first time I have used an image from The Stamping Chef and I just love her, isn't she so great for teenagers or adults? Her hair is so pretty. They have some really sassy/cheeky images and some like this that are not so sexy, there's something for everyone.

Friend like you easel card (Magnolia Stamps image)

Hi everyone,

My last card to show you tonight is an easel card, I love making these. I have used another gorgeous Magnolia Stamps' Tilda image, isn't she sweet holding up the little puppy?

I love using loads of flowers and my new favourite embellishment is my little glass bottles with a cork in the top, there are so many ways to use them and this time I have added some purple glitter in it. This is the first time I have used my new honeycomb die which I have added to the bottom and used some of the off-cut hexagons into some random white hexagons by turning the paper over and glittering.

Shabby Chic window card (Magnolia stamp image)

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I've created with Magnolia stamps so I decided to get them back out and now I've created 2 cards to show you with my lovely Tildas on them.

I had grand designs for an easel card with windows and doors, lovely front garden etc but when I realised how large my window and shutters were, that idea quickly went out the window (pardon the pun hehe). I created a brick effect behind the window with my brown copic marker (E37) and my colourless marker. I have also used some chipboard corners and heat embossed them with some white powder. I distressed and inked all the edges to give it a shabby chic feel.

Hi everyone,

How easy it to create masculine cards when we are blessed to have such gorgeous images like these to play with? Di's Digis latest challenge is "Make it Masculine" and I knew instantly this was the little guy I wanted to use for it.
