August cards

OK, yes I know its September, but here they are finally..

A great mans card which is so quick and effective, made with stamps away stamps, new memento colour called espresso truffle and my new favourite toy - Martha Stewart photo corner punch

 A baby card in neutral colours using a stampavie stamp by Penny Johnson called Sleeping on the Moon, and the embossing from a Boofle Tri Boss embossing folder - the die cut is a Marianne Die

the baby sentiment is from Stampin Up

.. was so excited when the new LOTV stamps came out for Christmas, I just HAD to use one of those, for those who know me, know how I love love love all things LOTV!

I used a cuttlebug snowflake folder for this and partial embossing around the image, and a fiskars border corner punch, with some crystal like glitter for snow

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley too, and here is some more partial embossing on the inside of the card:

a wedding card using a newish Darice embossing folder and an old Lili of the Valley stamp which is still a firm favourite! The swirls are Magnolia dies as well as the leaf shape, and the sentiment shapes are spellbinder dies

and another book card to share (yep am addicted to them can you tell???????) using a Gorjuss stamp and that photo punch again! 
Marianne dies, Martha Stewart leaves and EK success punched flowers to finish this one.

the inside of the book card - the little books in the stamp set finish this off perfectly!

the inside 'pages' - that yummy gorgeous purple ink is versamagic archival ink added with a finger dauber after the papers were distressed - papers from Craft Creations.

and a side on view:

a huge thanks to everyone who came and made these cards with me, and to the new crafters I met in Kilkenny with Marion Kilbride too!

Will pop back soon with some more projects, I have a few things half finished and will share them when done.
