Twisted Easel Card

I have been wanting to try this card for so long, I love making the normal easel cards, this is made the same way with a bit of a twist. The base and the front are made the same but when you come to folding the base inside of folding the top in half you fold it into a diagonal. There are many variations and lots of tutorials on youtube. 
 For the front of the card I stamped the image twice and cut out certain pieces and using the silcone glue I paper toiled them. I then die cut out the fancy tag and embossed it, while it was still in the frame I sponged the edges. I then removed the die and used a stamp positioner to place the verse. I t was all then assembled adding the flourish.

Blooming Flower

This card was made with my first Whimsy stamp that I received for my Birthday last month, isn't she just beautiful. I also got the felt from MFT to use with their dies, it really makes a difference using the right felt and not the stuff from the $2 shops.
              And once again I decided to do the inside of the card, it really does finish the card.
Stamps: Whimsy Stamps, verse- Art stamps Australia

Paper: rose red, yellow and white card, DP - Imaginisce
Other: felt, MFT die-namics rolled mum, ribbon, copic pens,button, Fleur de lis border and rectangle nestabilities

Domo Arigato

Hello there it has been awhile but I think I am back in the swing of things.
 I made this card for My Favorite things Wednesday sketch challenge MFTWSC60 . This was awhile ago but I had no idea what the phrase meant, so I did a Wikipedia search a found it means "Thank you very much" which is good because I had it lined up as a Birthday card so I will just put it into the Thank you collection.
I used MFT PI- Good Fortune set and stamped the image and cut it out with circle nestabilities and nellies die, then coloured and paper pieced the dress with some oriental paper, the floral background was made with rice paper. I used MFT mini Tabs quartet and Martha Stewart border punch and then added a few gems.
Have a great Day
