trying to get ahead

hi world

this week i am trying to get ahead with the card making, i always seem to leave stuff till the last minute, so this year I AM  going to get ahead. there are a couple of cards i made today

 the stamps are from the artistic stamper, the mabel lucy attwell collection. i won the whole set last year . . .  in a lucky dip competition.
the pictures are simply coloured in with pencils.
 the top card has a  paper flower which is inked with distress inks. the tag underneath is cut from the backing card from papermania diamonte spots.

the  flower on the bottom card is die cut  synthetic leather, melted with a heat gun. the backing paper has been embossed using tim holtz music folder. 

i have recently taught myself (if you know what i mean) to stamp onto a bigger piece of card than i used to, so i can cut any shape i want using the nestabilities.
oh well 2 more to add to the card stash . . .  i should say first 2 in the card stash


  1. Hi Janet, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment which made me laugh. Maybe we should add an instruction sheet with the easel cards hahah! Have a lovely day! Sue x
