Birthday Bash

Hi everyone, it seems to be brightening up here - hooray!  I'd like to share with you a card I've made and would like to enter for this month's Sir Stampalot Challenge.  The image is a Hero Arts cling stamp which I've stamped onto yellow card and embossed.  I layered the image to give it a 3d effect and added a button to the centre of the flower.  I've used a Martha Stewart PATP punch to create a pretty mat.  The base card is the same as used for the stamping.  I've stamped the background with the Hero Arts stamp and embossed with detail clear.  I used distress inks over the embossing.  I cut a swirl with my Cricut and added the happy birthday greeting.  Hope you like.  Linda X

Sarah Kay Engagement Card

Afternoon everyone, I won't say good because the weather here is atrocious, but on the positive side it's good for blogging and crafting!  My share with you today is an engagement card I was asked to make for a work colleague.  The image is Sarah Kay which I stamped onto a mat cut with my Cricut and coloured with Copics.  The background papers are digital and the borders were created with a Martha Stuart punch. I used raffia lace underneath the mat and diecut corners using Memory Box dies to which I added a bit of bling.  The sentiment was computer generated and again the mat was cut with my Cricut.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've punch some leave. The butterfly from stash.  Hope you like!  Enjoy the rest of the day - Linda x
