Sweet Little Birdie

This card was made from the new My Sweet Pea set from the mini catalogue. The background is stamped in So Saffron and the bird is stamped in So Saffron for his beak and Chocolate Chip for his body. The paper comes from the Sweet Pea dsp stack and the scalloped edge is done in Taken with Teal. I decided not put a greeting on so this card can be used for any occasion. Hope you all have a great Bank Holiday Weekend!

Bella Bleu and Crumb Cake

The base for this card was made using Crumb Cake, the new name for Kraft. It's so long since I've used any of this, I always want to have the matching ink to stamp with, roll on October when I can get hold of it! The other base layers are made from Not Quite Navy and the Bella Bleu dsp, another one I haven't used much. The image is stamped with markers and comes from the Live Your Dream set, the sentiment is from Sincere Salutations. The card is finished with some Crumb Cake/ Kraft taffeta ribbon and some Not Quite Navy brads. I really like how this card has turned out, what do you think?

Monkey in the Leaves

This card was made using the new Fox and Friends set. the background was brayered in Certainly Celery and the leaves were then stamped in Old Olive. The leaves come from the level three hostess set Garden Dreams. The spotty background paper comes from the Sweet Pea dsp, really hope we get some gorgeous new dsp to replace this as I'm going to miss it when its gone. The sentiment is stamped in Pumpkin Pie and comes from the Wow Flowers set.

Sweet Pea Bag and Card

This card and bag were made using some paper from the new Sweet Pea stack, I really do love the colours in these papers. Instructions to make the bag can be found here. The embellishment on the front on the bag is made from repeated stamping an image from Circle Circus in Chocolate Chip, Rose Red and Old Olive. Different parts of the image were then punched out using the scallop circle, the 1 3/8" circle and the 1 1/4" circle punches. The card was made using the same image for the base and the Happy Birthday Circle greeting from Wow Flowers, this was finished off with an Old Olive brad.

Baby Giraffe Card

This card uses the little giraffe from the Fox and Friends set in the new mini, its very cute. The image was stamped in Pretty in Pink and the stars, which are from Nursery Necessities were stamped in So Saffron. The background paper comes from the new Sweet Pea paper stack. The card is finished off with some Old Olive brads, I think these are a little too close together, but once I made the holes I had to go with it.
