Variation on a theme......

Morning fellow bloggers another post from me today using one of the new stamps from Crafty Individuals, the new large stamp designed by Linda Edwards, CI 443 Floral Festival on offer at the moment Here.
I have used the stamp in 3 different ways to create the following cards.

Stamped with memento black and coloured in with Polychromos and Prisma pencils, added star dust stickles to parts of the flowers.

Embossed with Cosmic Shimmer gold embossing powder onto a page from the Seville background book which is also from Crafty Individuals

Using a variety of Memento ink pads

Morning fellow crafty bloggers, Crafty Individuals have launched some new stamps, so I just had to have a play with this vintage Teddy stamp CI 440. I have used distress inks to colour the image which I stamped with Archival Potting Shed, sealed it and then over stamped with a background stamp. The papers are Maya Autumn Basics collection from Live and Love Crafts.

The flowers are CI, 206 Butterfly stamped and embossed in gold CI 437
Background stamp CI 436 and sentiment is CI 438 and they can all be found here

Afternoon fellow crafty bloggers, I,m enjoying a bit of sun catching up with the weeding after the holls, why do you get more than if you had stayed at home cos I've come back to loads and I want to be playing with some of my new stash that I brought in Florida. Talking of new have you checked out the new stamps from Crafty Individuals the sentiment one CI 438 is a must have because it covers every occasion and some. Check out the new products here.

Todays card is for the challenge at Crafty Individuals the theme is                    
                                                    ......Face Value. 

 I have used an image from The people and Places book 2 on offer at just £1.45, which I mounted in a paper frame covered with one of the pages from the new Seville book, I then added gold and white Frantage to edges of the frame and backed it with a narrow lace.

The background stamp is CI 435 and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer gold embossing powder, gorgeous shimmery effect and picks out the detail on the stamp a treat, I also used the same gold for the flowers, stamp CI 206 which I stamped onto another page from The Seville background book and the butterflies CI 437 were embossed onto a shimmer gold paper.
