Celebrate ...

I haven't had time to craft properly properly for a while but the other night I really treated myself. Out came the inks and some stamps that have been calling to me for ages. I also tried to challenge myself to make some quick cards and relatively CAS in design ... for me, that is a HUGE challenge!

Here's one of the design I came up with ...

I have used the Bella Fleur and Belle Papillion stamp sets, (from Polkadoodles) and cut out some of the elements using the matching dies.

I began by using one sheet of the backing paper from the Bella Fleur paper pack, (being tight with this paper pack as it's seriously GORGE), by stamping some small hearts all over it. They have been water coloured and glittered. I then created three panels from the paper: back layer and 2
matt layers.

Next I stamped the flowers and water coloured them, finally cutting them out. These have been layered to hangover the top of the card and panels. The bird house was stamped & water coloured and then cut out using the matching die.

Some lickle extra flowers and gems to finish the look. Again, apologies for the over exposed photographs ... I seriously need some lessons ... again! 😆😩😳

Right I have a serious date with blogger tonight as want to catch up with all that is new in craft land.

Take care and see you soon,
