A few cards

Hi folks

Just a quick one from me today to share a few cards I've made recently.

I used various products to make some general everyday cards and I hope you like them.

This first one was simply stamped using Distress Ink in Pumice Stone and stamps from Penny Black (Slapstick/cling 40-092 all you need ..." and Hero Arts Art of the Card stamp set AC005 Untitled Word Shadow). I also inked around the edges with Pumice Stone. Sorry, not the best photo.

Next a shaped card which I covered with some papers I bought several years ago, along with some pretty lace and a couple of die cut flowers.

This next one is a "wrap" card. I used papers from another stack I bought several years ago (yes, I'm a paper hoarder!) and decorated the edges of the two sides with some pretty lace. I embellished the front with die cut foliage, a row of pearls on some pink pleated ribbon and some flowers from Ribbon Girl, added the inside tag message and tied a little lace through the hole at the top.

I also made a little coordinating box for it.

The next card was embellished with some pretty red roses, ribbon and lace, together with some delicate die cut butterflies created using a lovely Memory Box die called Fluttering Corner.

Another simple design, this time using a linen textured card blank. I used the lovely Fluttering Corner die again, and this time used both the outline and the butterflies. I love that outline design! I also made three tiny daisies using a little punch I bought years ago - in fact I think it was the first punch I ever bought! I stamped the sentiment using VersaMagic Jumbo Java and inked around the edges of the card using Distress Ink in Pumice Stone.

I hope you like my designs and would love to read your comments.

Bye for now!
