some to share

 just some cards I meant to post in the last couple of days but have been a busy bee.. so here goes at long last and there's loads of pics to look at in this post too!! :)

the first card is a Tatty Ted one.. you kno the Me to You bear - I was excited when forever friends stamps arrived but when these little ones did I was sooo excited!!
So with lots of stars and glitter and gems, I decided a blue and white card would look cute.. here is the twisted easel shape I used and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

and some closeups

the glittering and design of the MTY border star stamp -  so sweet and dainty and I imagine would be brilliant for fairy cards too

and the border inside the card - the punch is a dovecraft star border one - its one of the cheapest punches I have bought and used again and again.

the next couple of cards are both with Lili of the Valley images and I just love them at the moment, so using them a lot!!

A baby one for a boy or girl in a ladnscape easel shape

and here is a closeup of the inking and paper piercing and embossing using a cuttlebug border embossing folder (the long thin folders you get in packs)

 and the flower with a button centre, made with EK success daisy punches

you can see the layering on the little hat as well to add a little more dimension (as if I didnt have enough of layering by that stage LOL!)

The last one to share is a bookmark card, very smilar to the Penny Black rabbit one from a few posts back.
I love these cards as they are so nice to give to people who read a lot, especially if you personalise them.

 the leafy embossing folder on this one is a quickutz one and the leaf shape is a spellbinders die, the sentiment is a hero arts clear polymer one from a set..

and here is the inside - using normal garden twine which was teased and frayed with a pokey / pricking tool

 If you want to know any more about the products or tools used, just leave me a comment with your email address if you dont have a blog or email me jessk1001@yahoo.co.uk
