Cili in Papers sells Tonic Studios great products and last week-end I got a set of the petal pair punches to play with (-: It's amazing how many different kinds of 3d flowers you can make from just a few of their flower punches. Here's my first try at making roses - after a bit of chalking and distressing I think they turned out quite ok!
The colors I've used for this card are from CR84FN29 and the sketch is from CPS. I will also enter it for Really Reasonable Ribbons Challenge and Wee Memorie's Stamp it challenge. (for this card I've used stamps from Tim Holtz, Waltzing Mouse, Mark's Finest Paper and Crafty Secrets)
Have a great day!
Here's my contribution for this month's blog hop at Papertrey Ink. We were challenged to use flowers and for my card I first embossed the bg with the text embossing plate and then stamped it with the flower from Up, up and away. I masked with a bit of tape where I wanted my sentiment and stamped one from Signature Greetings. The button card is from the Button Boutique set which I'm falling in love with - so useful! I've used quite a lot of stamping on this card so I'm also entering it at Wee Memories "Stamp it" challenge.
Have a great hop!

Can you tell I'm in love with the new Paper Smooches stamps I got last week??? The cuties are so photogenique I couldn't resist making some instant photo pics cards of them! This card is for Paper Smooches May challenge but there are random drawings for Anything goes cards at Crafty Creations (almost 600 entries before me )-:) and Stamp Something (442 entries so far) - but why not give it a chance!!!???
It could be smooches from anywhere I just picked Paris since the border is from a magazine I picked up when I was there last month. I've used the colors from Embellish color trend Challenge with tags and it's also for Whiff of Joy and of course I'm entering it at Paper Smooches!!!
Here's a non-girly Birthday Card for a girl - my niece! WooHooo - it's soon your birthday!
I've used stamps from Papersmooches and Wilson Designs
I'm entering this card at PS, Kathy's color throwdown at LilyPad and at Claudia and company
Here's a card for a girl. I used inspiration from the beautiful picture at Ribbon Reel, "strawberry and cream" and the Really Reasonable Ribbons "anything goes with ribbon" and from The Shabby Tearoom and Anabelle Stamps where it's Monochromatic, at Create and Stamptacular it is - all pink and I dry embossed the background using cuttlebug's polka dot folder, for the Lily Pads embossing challenge. And it would make a sweet baby card for a girl; Simon says stamp
