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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
