Rock Star

Very simple. I'm trying to use up old papers (so I have an excuse to buy more) and this DCWV one is very old! Just added a stamped sentiment, stamp by SU.

hanglar stanglar

I received some stamped images a year or so ago but wasn't keen so I put them in a drawer and forgot about them.
Having a tidy out and came across them again and thought I ought to use them up.
The sentiment tag is by Kanban, the image is hanglar stanglar.

The blue card with the bunting printed on is actually the reverse of an advertising flyer from Emma Bridgewater pottery! Seemed a shame to put in the bin.

Made at SU class.
I loved the little 'button' in the centre of the flower. This was made with a small punched circle of card and a strip of thin ribbon just wrapped around it.

We made this box at SU class so all materials are Stampin' Up

Similar to an exploding box but without the layers inside, this was one sheet of card.

I haven't got round to printing off photographs for the inside but they should go on the plainish squares.

Bit of a boring one!
Bought a new Papermania die and wanted to see if it worked okay in my Cuttlebug.

No photographs!

I try to update with a new card every other day.

Yesterday I was unable to add any photographs to my blog and the problem is still unresolved :(

So I do have cards, I just can't show them.

Card made at SU class.
Lots of punching. The green alien has been stamped inside the card so he peeps through the punched circle at the front.

Prom Queen

A card for my niece, her prom is later this year and I wanted to chip in towards her outfit.
Dress and stand is a Sizzix die. Alphabet is Boxed Brush by Sizzix and butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.
After I photographed the card I decided to add some gems for a bit of bling.
