Just to Say

Feb card for "Crafty Card Swap" group The theme is black/ white/ and /red.
Using red card stock I stamped the background in black memento using a Kanban stamp I also used the same stamp for the middle embossed in red then layered on black (I like to use black behind it really makes the image pop).I put this at an angle. I added flowers and leaf using a Marriane die the smaller flowers are my faithful Nellie Snellen punch My side border was an "Artemio" stamp on white card stock and embossed in black the sentiment was free with Creative Stamping Spring Fling magazine

Paper Chain

I made this card for my Sophie .
I used some beautiful papers that I had in my stash for ages and I just love them, and have found it difficult to  cut into them just wanted to look and stroke.....anyone else ever feel this way
They just had the look that I needed for this card.
 I used my Nellie Snellen punches for the flowers and Cheery Lynn flourish. 
The middle is a docrafts die and the lady in the hat is a peel-off coloured in black
the velvety papers on the bottom are from Stampin Up and the top ones are Kanban  felt it was all worth the sacrifice.

Spring Blossoms

Another make using free stamps from Creative Stamping issue 8
I just loved this corner flower stamp it looks very effective as a border I incorporated it with with another of my favourite pansy stamps from Papermania Botanical range. This stamp is tiny but so versatile. I used Adirondack Lettuce and blended it with damp brush to create  shaded flower petals. My buttons are a Nellie Snellen die and the cut-out is Spellbinder labels 19.
 I am entering this into DCC Challenge "Button Up"
