Greenhouse Garden

I've been playing with my Stampin Up Greenhouse Garden stamps again - well it is raining far too hard to go into the real garden!! These are two-part stamps where one layer is over stamped onto another. The background panel was done using Distress Ink pads and the top layer stamp of one of the flowers. Smaller flowers were stamped , cut out and layered up with leaves (cut out from a larger stamp of a horse chestnut leaf by Personal Impressions). Paper, ribbon and card are from SU - plum, celery and a light blue.

Double Slider Card

I found instructions for a double slider card on Split Coast Stampers and have had a go using my new set of Greeenhouse Garden stamps from Stampin Up, the leaves were stamped from the Touch of Nature set. The two sliders disappear into the card leaving the main image with a tab to pull for the surprise.

Christmas Challenge

Challenge 21 on Moving along with the Times is to follow a sketch by Clare W and make a card. I decided to go for a Christmas theme with a stamp from the Stamp Man, Papermania background papers and some cuttlebug embossing.

Owl Calendar

Here is another easel card calendar - this time using the free owl stamp which was given away with Craft Stamper a while ago. The owls which were coloured with Copic pens and cut out, are sitting on a branch from the Stampin Up touch of nature set. Background paper is from Artylicious and the decorative border punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
