Three More Cards......

Firstly, welcome to my two new followers,  Lesley Roulstone and Paula.  I can't find a link to either of your blogs, so please leave me a comment so I can make a link to your blogs in my next post. Thank you both for following my blog.

Three more cards were made this week, all of which have been received, so I'm able to post them here.  

The first card is a Belated birthday card.
This is a NBUS Inkadinkado stamp set with the image and sentiments coming as three separate stamps.  I thought it was a pretty cute image, but I haven't needed to make a Belated birthday card until this week, so it had it's first outing.  The image is coloured with Promarkers and the embossing folder is Couture Creations 'Fireflies'.  The card is finished off with Card Candi.

My second card is a Thank You card.
I bought the Papermania Thank You stamp a while ago in a clearance sale.  When I opened the packet this week, I realised that the stamp came with a die, which cuts the shape of the outline of the words.  'WOW' I thought, it was more of a bargain than I thought.  However, when I went to use it, I discovered that the die actually cuts out the shape in reverse.  The only way it would work was if I stamped on the back of the die cut - but the edges weren't as smooth.  So, it was back to Plan A and I die cut the stamped image with a Memory Box Stitched rectangle die.  The image was coloured with Promarkers.  I used the same embossing folder as the card above on silver pearlised paper this time.  Apart from the card blank, all the card and paper were snippets, so I'll be popping over to the Playground with this card.

Finally, this card is a copy of a card I made at the weekend HERE, but changing the colours to deep blue and silver and using one of the other dies in the corner set.

I would like to enter my Thank You card for the following challenges:


  1. Three wonderful cards. The first one is fun with the cute image and cute card candi. The middle on has a stunning background embossed look, and the third one is stimply gorgeous.

  2. oh, what a trio of wonderful cards! I have that belated snail stamp too and you made such a cute card with him! I absolutely LOVE the 3rd card with that specialty die-cut corner! I've GOT to add one of those to my stash! Well done all 3!

  3. Liz, great cards! Love how you used the same embossing folder for both of the first two cards and it works well! The blue and white card is gorgeous, you always use such great dies.
