1970's Green Lady

Hi Guys,
This card has no Cricut involved at all but thought I'd share anyway, I was inspired by the colours in this project which I found in this months Craft Stamper Magazine here in the UK. The designer was  Liesbeth Fiddler & I think  the colour combination is stunning ! I used different stamps and Lisbeth used gesso over the background & stamping but I didn't have any so I used Glossy Accents and really like the effect . There is stamping under and over the glossy Accents which seems to give a real depth to the images . This girl looks to me like she's just steped out of the 1970's !
Enjoy your week

My Pink Stamper ( Pink, Green & Black) Color Challenge

Here she is my Pink Lady ! A Doorhanger for my craft room.
I have used chipboard in between two layers of the pink paper to give it some support so I used the Deep Blade Housing  to cut the chipboard. She was fun to make I love the Forever Young Cartridge so many layers and images on one cartridge.

My Flower Pot

This was one of my My Pink Stamper Pink Designer submissions which I can now show you . No luck this time but was my first try out which was fun. I just thought this pot was a little plain for my beautiful Hydrangea !

So a did a little decorating using Accent Essentials Cart. 
I just use my pokey tool to curl the edge of the flowers to make them sit with a little height on my project .
Well I hope you like this , I've got another post for tomorrow. Have a great Easter !


Little Sister Card

This is was a card for a friend and I wanted to try out the weld feature a little more on my Gypsy, I used Gypsy Font & Gypsy wanderings to make this card. I don't think you can see very well in my pic but the lettering is done with card from DCWV Glitter cardstock stack .
