Baby Bear

For today's card I used Alota Rubber Stamps sketch 95 for the layout inspiration. This image is one of my favorites for creating baby cards, it is wood mounted fern gully stamp made in Australia, I have had it for some time. The ribbon is from my supplies I have also had it for years and it was still brand new. The little embossed pieces are so cute.
Thanks for looking

Imogen Birthday girl

I needed a card for a little girl who had just turned 2 and is having a rainbow party. I hope she likes this. I have used the cherry lynn flourish and MFT PI stamp and some very bright card and ribbon.

Celebrate being sporty

This is Easel card that doubles as a gift card holder made for a young man. I don't have many suitable young male stamps so I have a few 3D layered images. You may wonder where is the gift card, well it was bright yellow and it certainly did not match the colour scheme, so I made an insert and taped the card to the back.

Faux pressed flowers

This card was inspired by a new technique that I found on Splitcoast stampers called Faux pressed flowers. In the tutorial they have used stamps and paper flowers but all the items I have used on the centre card have been die cut, glued in place and the whole card is then embossed using a folder. This gives it a very interesting look, I will be sure to try out some other folders to see how they turn out.
MFT die-namics, cherry lynn flourish, Nellie Snellen die, cuttlebug embossing folder, ribbon, designer paper, cream and pink card stock.
