Teachers Thank you cards

Just a quick post, here's  some teachers  thank you  cards. Jess age 7 made the first card  using the sweet heart stamp  set. I think she did a great  job.

I made the second  card using the funky four stamp  set, colouring the stamp  with markers to get multi colour mushrooms! I used the polka  dot embossing folder for texture, the thank u is from cuter by the inch hostess set.

Anniversary card no. 2

This is my second anniversary card, I used the same sketch as yesterday, from simply stampin' challange no.16, here, but used a more subtle colour, bashful blue, my husband prefers this one, I like yesterdays best, which do you prefer?. I added a butterfly instead of one of the flowers and used the very vintage wheel to do the background on the bashful blue cardstock.

Very Vintage wheel and vintage vogue Anniversary Card

There are three July wedding anniversaries in my family so I thought I'd better get a start on them. I've used the sketch from the Simply Stampin' Challenge blog here , challenge 16. I used some colours I've not used before, old olive and rich razzleberry, they are very strong colours but I liked them together. I also used the very vintage wheel, I love the wheels, especially the jumbo ones, they are great for covering large areas quickly, this wheel goes beautifully with the vintage vogue stamp set.  Here is my card:

I sponged the edges of the card with rich razzleberry ink using sponge daubers, ruffled some old olive satin ribbon and added some pearls. I then stamped an anniversary sentiment straight onto the card base.  I hope you like it, I love these colours but my husband prefers the one I will be showing you tomorrow

More Owls

Here are some more owls. I have made some corner bookmarks this time so you can keep your owl for longer! I will have to put a tutorial up for these bookmarks as they are so easy to do, if you look it up on you tube you will find a few. My first card uses marina mist

I used dsp and gems for his waistcoat and teamed the blue up with early expresso card.
My other combination is wild wasabi, earlt expresso and crumb cake.

Mr & Mrs Owl

Just a quick post. I don't think I have posted any of my owl punch cards, I love this owl and you can turn it into other things, flowers, ghosts, penguins...... but I've stuck to owls at the moment. Here is Mr & Mrs Owl which I think makes a really cute wedding card.
