I used the free stamps and papers from Issue 90 Papercraft Essentials to create this birthday card.

Deepest Sympathy

I made this card for a dear friend on the passing of her husband
I created the lovely flower edge using my  Woodware Crafty Edger straight and corner "Tag" punches, cassette. then I used my StampinUp "Framelits" dies with the paper piercing.
the lily stamp and sentiment  was from Papermania "Just to say" stamp set.
I stamped the lily in Adirondak "lettuce" ink then using a damp paintbrush I filled in the flower with the lettuce.the same ink was used to distress the edges.
the pearls are a very light shade of green .

Hearts n Flowers

Last night I went to the theatre courtesy of my daughter Corrine. to see Clairvoyant Tracy TJ  Higgs, it was my first time and it was very enlightening a lovely sincere lady, really enjoyed the experience.

Todays make is an ATC with envelope for  a swap, the theme is hearts and flowers. firstly I stamped a verse  from this is a beautiful verse "English Summer Garden" I distressed the edges to age the card with various colours including black. I used a string of hearts stamp on the top left corner and  a stamp that said flowers on the bottom right grasses stamp I inked in green was an " Inkwell"stamp ~ clearly the best~ then onto the grasses I stamped tiny flowers in orange red and yellow then I used versamark and clear embossing powder to look like varnish (much less mess this way).
my tiny flowers are from an EK punch added tiny gems. the top heart is half of a butterfly Stampin Up punch I added other punched hearts to make a trail and added 2 hearts / 1 red gems the tiny butterflies are a Tonic " butterflies pattern  paper"  punch . then my lovely little ladybird finished it off. My envelope was made with Stampin Up two sided papers to this I added a red Tim Holtz heart from the mini hearts Movers and Shapers die.
Thank you for any comments I love to get feedback it's a good feeling to know others admire your work.
