Blue Ties

I got this picture from one of my old parchment craft mags and decided to scan it and print it onto some blue vellum. I inked on the back in white pen behind the ties so they stood out.
I  used my parchment star tool around the edge 
Then I matted onto black card and then  blue card added 2 pieces of ribbon across the centre and some gems. this a very slim card but perfect for the picture.

Roses with Love

Mothers Day

another make with the tulip stamp....

Bunches of Tulips

Card made using  Tulip stamp free with no 9 Creative Stamping Magazine
I used the resist stamp effect pg 26 a great idea.
I stamped four images in each corner to create a background 
then using a white wax crayon I coloured the flower heads then I used ink to distress using kitchen roll to buff off the colour you end up with a two toned tulip
I diecut 2 pieces of white card using the Stampin Up Framelits Labels stamped my tulips using the same method added some faux stitches with a black fine liner and the sentiment from the same set.
