Stamp image onto cream cardstock and trim to size and go around edges with turquoise color box ink pad and color in using Tombow pens and Stickles glitter glue and attach to cardfront as shown.

Now I have to tell you that I taught this card at card class last Saturday and then on Sunday I decided I had better photograph some cards for the blog this week and of course everytime I went outside to try it started raining, so needless to say I got quite wet and some of the cards got a bit of rain on them as well - hows that for dedication to this blog.
Materials - White cardstock for card base, Turquoise Bazzil cardstock, Turquoise pattern scrapbook paper, White cardstock to print image onto, Prima Flowers, buttons, Copic Markers, Stickles clear glitter glue, Nestabilities label die and a Turquoise color box ink pad.
Method - I went around edges of the turquoise bazzil cardstock and the turquoise scrapbook paper with a turquoise color box ink pad and attached them to cardfront. I then used my Big Shot to cut a label from Turquoise Bazzil cardstock using Nestabilities label die and attached a strip of Turquoise cardstock and then the label to the cardfront. I printed out the digi image onto white cardstock and then coloured her in using copic markers and did the wings with Stickles glitter glue and went around edges of image with turquoise color box ink pad and attached it to the label as shown. I then added Prima flowers and buttons.
I have Pixies and Angels living at the bottom of my garden - I hope you do too .....

Well she looks ready for summer even if I am definately not - time to buy the fake tan soon I think, as the thought of wearing summer clothes with my winter white body is a fairly horrific thought. At least with my diabetes being out of control recently and having to switch to insulin, has meant that I have dropped some kg so at least ready for summer in that way.
Today's card uses an image from Magnolia called Tilda in her swimsuit.
Base card is white. I have layered Navy Bazzil cardstock onto the base card and then some Laura Ashley turquoise flocked paper after going around the edges with turquoise color box ink pad and securing some cream butterfly organza ribbon around. I then added strip of turquoise Bazzil cardstock to the bottom of the card which I ran through my Big Shot using Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder. Image stamped onto white cardstock using black brilliance and then coloured with Copic markers and went around the edges with turquoise color box ink pad. I then mounted the image onto the card as shown and added some Prima flowers and a metal Imagine word and some white buttons.
Roll on lazy summer days.

Seeing as its Sunday today - thought I would share a really easy five minute card with you.
I found this roll of gorgeous star ribbon at some shop in Durban that Kim took me to years ago and I put it away in the cupboard and then it finally fell out the cupboard recently and I decided to use some of it.
The base card is cream and I then added strip of the ribbon down the left hand side and then cut another piece of cream and glued that to the front inside cover of the card to hide the back ends of the ribbon. I then added two gold stars and stamped and embossed in gold A wish for you. I also added a strip of gold magic ribbon ro right hand side of card. Truly a five minute card. They are always good when you are trying to make a lot of cards.

Seems several of you would like to see more techniques and Hayley wants to see my tools and equipment and what I do with them.
So today I did post the Serigraph technique and I will be posting more techniques in the future and also tips on tools and equipment.
Congratulations to Ursula for winning the stamp. I will get it in the post to you on Monday. I hope you enjoy it.

Today's card uses cream cardstock for the base card. I then took some striped scrapbook paper and went around the edges with pink color box ink pad and attached that to the cardfront. I used black brilliance to stamp Spring words on. I then used same ink pad to stamp flowers (hero arts) onto pink and purple cardstock and cut them out and added them together with a material flower to the cardfront. I glittered two of the flower centres and added a rhinestone and a button in the others. I then added a butterfly and some flower rhinestones.

Now these have to rate as my favourite flowers in the garden - hyacinth's - they just always smell so beautifully.
I used white cardstock for my card base. I then printed out green floral and dot paper from Pink Petticoat CD and attached them to cardfront. I then took strip of Light green Bazzil cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder and went around the edges with color box ink pad and attached it to the cardfront. I then took strip of dark green Bazzil cardstock and ran that through the Big Shot using Cuttlebug Swirl folder and attached that to the cardfront. I then stamped the floral collage image from Third Coast Rubbr Stamps using Black Brilliance ink pad and coloured it in using DTP technique using color box ink pads. I then went around the edges with gold pen and attached the image to cardfront. I then added some rhinestones, Floral fantasy metal word charm and some Prima flowers with rhinestone.
