Here is a card I made using the new Blossom papers by Craftwork Cards. The flowers are made by scoring down the centre of the petals of 2 die cut daisies and sticking both daisies together. I got the idea from the Craftwork Cards blog although the centres of the flowers on the blog are more elegant than on mine!

I used a die cut scallop circle with a punched circle inside in and finished off with an In Circle message. Must admit I'm really pleased with this card.

Watch the Birdie

I used my new Tim Holtz die to cut out the bird and the cage. The cage was cut from some Bazzill card and the bird from some My Mind's Eye paper. The edge of the card blank is inked with Timber Brown Stazon and I used the same ink and A Field of Sky stamp to create a dotty background.

The scallop circle was punched from the same paper as the bird and I punched a 1 3/8" circle from card matching the card blank to go inside this before adding the In Circle message. I finished the card off with some Card Candy.

You're a Star!

I used a Ritzy Lime card blank for this and some My Mind's Eye papers from Craftwork Cards. The stars and scalloped oval were punched with Stampin' Up punches and I added an oval message to finish off the card.
This card is for a friend but I can't say much else as it relates to something that is hush hush at the moment. You know who you are though - you are a star and I have every confidence that you will continue to shine xxx

The Other Double Gap Card

This time I chose a hot pink and lime theme - I really like these two colours together. Again I used glitter glue for some sparkle and this card has self-adhesive crystals in the centre of the little daisies for even more sparkle!

Double Gap Card

This is for a 'Gap' card swap on my card group. I had to make two gap cards - I usually do two the same but have done different ones this time so will post the other one tomorrow.
I decided to do something a little different so made two gaps! I used two Elegant rectangles and stuck to a black and lime colour scheme. The picture perhaps doesn't show this but I added glitter glue to the Card Candy for a little sparkle.

Birthday Wishes

Another quick card, again using an Elegant Rectangle. I punched the bird and branch using a Stampin' Up punch. The scallop circle was also punched with a Stampin' Up punch. I also punched a circle from chocolate brown card and mounted it onto the scallop circle before adding the In Circle message.

The papers are by my My Mind's Eye and came from Craftwork Cards.

Special Day

This card was really easy to make. First of all I scored an Elegant Rectangle down the centre to make a card blank. I then cut 3 squares of Glitz and Glamour paper and stuck them to the card before adding Card Candy and a Beautiful Butterfly. Finally I tied some black grosgrain round the spine of the card.

I chose 'Kiss' for these ATCs. I may have mentioned before that I am taking part in a swap on my card group where we are working throught the alphabet.
I covered the base card with some patterned paper, then stamped the lips using a Rubber Stampede stamp and Pink Passion ink from Stampin' Up. The edges of the ATC are inked with black Stazon and to finish off I cut the letters using my Mac 'n' Cheese dies which I stuck to the ATC using a glue pen.

And another.........

This card was really eay to use make but I think it looks very effective. I love this floral paper and the combination of black and hot pink. I added self-adhesive crystals to the chandelier die cut which finish off the card nicely.

Another Design Team Card

This is another of the cards that I made - this is one of my favourites. Although it doesn't show up, the Card Candy in the centre of the daisies has been covered in glitter glue making it lovely and sparkly.

Design Team Cards

Craftwork Cards have been introducing design team members on their blog. I was given papers and die cuts from the Glitz and Glamour collection and asked to make some cards using them. This is the first one that I made and it was shown on the Craftwork Cards blog a few weeks ago.
