Secret Garden

Good morning lovelies!
Here I am with today's card!

I made a 6x6inch Kraft card using Secret Garden
one of the new Clear Polymer Stamps from La Pashe!
This card is actually intended for a man but I guess it might
be suitable for any keen gardener or indeed anyone who likes
to spend time in the garden!

I used my usual FlexMarker & ProMarker combo to colour up the image.
then matted it onto some brown CS which has a punched border.

I added a little bit of raffia mesh some buttons & some twine.
I just had to add a little bunch of keys too!
The papers are First Edition, Bo Chic (I think)
All of these items have been in my stash for ages!

A little side view to finish up.

Baby Bassinet

Good Morning dear peeps!
I have a card to share with you today! 

An 8"x8" WOW card for a baby boy, with "Pops" of blue!
 The image is "Baby Bassinet" one of the exclusive images on

It's just adorable isn't it! Perfect for a girl or a boy!
I coloured the image up with ProMarkers & FlexMarkers.
I wanted to have it quite subtle but to "Pop" as well!

Not sure where I got the sentiment from, I've had it forever!
I cut it out using a Sizzix die, threaded with ribbon from my stash
& added a few little self-adhesive flat backed pearls!

The hearts were made usng a Martha Stewart Punch & the stick pin 
was from my stash, as were the buttons.

A little double  ribbon bow to finish off.
Thanks for looking!

No Stamps Allowed

Hi di hi all!
Today I'd like to share my card for 
Where the theme is - No Stamps Allowed!

I made a flower using a DP that has been in my stash for ages & 
I don't think I would have used otherwise!
I cut the layers using theTim Holtz Tattered Florals Die,
I inked the edges with a liquid chalk inkpad.
Then used an embossing tool to shape.
The leaves were punched using a Woodware punch.

Here's a closer look!

The ribbon & twine are from Lidl & the sentiment
was made on my pc using a free font called
 Thanks for popping in, I hope to see you in the challenge!
