Easel cards

I have been having fun experimenting with easel cards.

This one is a tripple easel card. I have let the centre easel come out a little bit further just to give it a different look.

I have used the Designer Series Papers Love letter. I wasn't too sure how cream and black would go. I was a bit worried it would look a book boring, but the contrast of Cherry Cobbler went well.

I have used flowers from my craft stash and little pearls to support the easel.

I tried a different approach to the easel card and tried a circle card. I used the same layout as above but used the Bigz Dies Scallop Circle and the bracket from the Hearts & Brackets Original Dies.

I enjoy making these cards and can't wait to try some other shapes and designs.

Greenhouse Garden stamp

The Greenhouse Garden stamp set would have to be one of my favourite stamp sets. I just love the versatility of these stamps. I have used the pansy style stamp on this Birthday card.

I have used the Elegent Soiree designer series papers and inked the flower with Baja Breeze. I punched the leaves using the Two Step Bird punch. I used the Scallop Trim Border punch to frame the sentiment and decorated using pearls and ribbon.

This next card I made for me friends daughter, for her birthday. I haven't done alot of punch art but this was quite fun to make.

I made the girls dresses using the XL Scallop Circle punch and cut it down to get the desired shape. The other punches that I used were the XL Oval, XL Oval Scallop, Boho Blossoms,
and the 1 & 1.25" circle punches. I have decorated their dresses with small basic pearls.
