Forever Friends

This was the challenge on the Tanda Teaser this week and I have used stamps from a new set of cupcake stamps which they have just issued. I ordered yesterday afternoon and they arrived in the post today - excellent service as usual.

The background is a faux silk technique found on Crafty Butterfly blog and the icing on the cake has been covered in Diamond glaze, a ribbon stamped with a message and a 'friends' die cut on a Nestabilities shape complete the card.

This card was made to go into a Graphicus Guild album where members are challenged to use one stamp or a set of Elusive Images stamps to produce items showing their 'take' on the stamps. These were from the wild meadow set, words from the Birthday Words plate. The dragonfly is a small unmounted stamp which was amongst my collection of stamps. Background made by stippling various Adirondack dye inks onto glossy card.

Flower Birthday

Browsing round a craft shop recently I was tempted by some MME papers and a decoupage flower pad in Wild Asparagus design - I just added some ribbon and a greeting to complete this quick card.

Three, Two One

The Allsorts challenge number 12 is to follow a 'recipe' of three flowers, two papers and one ribbon. I have used three Prima flowers, two papers from the Bloom and Grow set by MME and a toning ribbon. Stamped image is from Stampin Up.
