Bundle of Love

I bought  a few new stamps from Little Claire the other day when they had a special offer and the Baby Changing Tree stamps was one of them.  I decided to make two cards - one for a girl and one for a boy.

Pink for a girl


and blue for a boy


I coloured both of the Changing Tree images with ProMarkers and used papers from Pink Petticoat keeping the design simple.  The sentiment tags are LOTV and the buttons and twine are from my stash, I cut the little scalloped border with a Clearly Besotted die.

Dandelion Dreams

I can't believe it, I've actually managed to make a card for the Less is More challenge this week.  It's One Layer week and the theme is Shadow Stamping, I really struggle with one layer cards, I always feel the need to add a base layer!


I have used the Dandelion Dreams stamp from Clearly Besotted and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink, the sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I so wanted to add some sequins and a coloured base layer but I resisted - watch this space!
