Flowers for you

Ok for today's project I used 2 new items and 1 that I have only used once. I picked up this cute stamp and Designer paper last week when I went craft supply shopping with the girls from club. They must to be fairly new to Australia this is the first time I have seen them, they are from the a UK company Trimcraft the Fizzy Moon Celebrations range, they are so cute and I am looking forward to using the rest of the range. The nestabilities die is great for framing an image, I also used giltter on the flower centres to make them pop. This card is called a zigzag card and instructions can be found on Stampowl's Studio

Stamps: Fizzy Moon - thanks a bunch

Paper: DP- Fizzy Moon Celebrations, chocolate & cream card.

Other: ribbon, flower brad - artsy licious, ds tape, foam tape,glitter, glue pen, copics, spellbinder nestabilities lacy square and square dies, oval & scallop oval punch

Is it Friday yet?

Have you ever had a week when all you can think of is it friday yet? I know I have and that was certainly last week. I wished I could have just stayed in my PJs all day. I stamped my paper pretties image, coloured it with copics and paper pierced the dressing gown. Cut it out using nestabilities label and sponged the edges for the layered effect. The circle love heart die is also from spellbinders and the scallop border die is from MFT. The stamps used for the background are from Hero Arts.

Tea & Love

When I was at club the other day Frances gave us a shoe box challenge, this it to show that I did my my homework and had a lots of fun. I have been looking at the rose flower on MFT and now I may just buy it not just have it on the wish list. Thanks Frances I am not sure where all the supplies come from but I think the stamp is from the Cat's Pajamas, there are some nestabilities, MFT mini rolled rose, punched leaves.
