 Happy Easter!
Scallop Envelope Bigz Die. Cut 4 out in Pretty in Pink CS & Embellish with 4 pieces of Melon Mambo DSP from the Brights Patterns Stack,  link for scallop envelope box tutorial on this post here. Eat Chocolate Stamp set, 2 of the images I stamped & combined, I added a Melon Mambo mount using the Decorative Label punch, I also added some Pompom Trim along with a bow tied in Satin Ribbon held together with an Antique Brad.

Teya's BF is having a Birthday tomorrow, we made her the same card I made Teya for hers. Teya chose the colour combo of Marina Mist, Perfect Plum & a little Rose Red.

Stength & Hope

I pre-ordered this set & this was my first play, ended up it was good enough for a class. Colours are Perfect Plum, Blushing Bride. The feature of this card turned out to be the twist on the taffeta & lace, the designer build-a-brad works well for this technique.
Oh & I forgot to post this update flyer on carry over products, I'm glad to see the bitty buttons as I'm almost out! & knowing I can get more lace will allow me to use it, LOL.

Happy Anniversary joy fold card

 19 years! wow..... A special card I made for my wonderful husband, I coloured the key with a leafing pen to make it look like bronze. His gift to me was the 2 bronze African warriors in the pic, I also got a house full of flowers & last night we went to the Little Truffle for dinner.

Engagement cards

 I love how this first one turned out, not much to it & very quick to re-create with the "I (Love) Love Wheel". Colours are Basic Grey, Concord Crush & Very Vanilla with some Lap of Luxury DSP. I used the Pinking Hearts border punch, which has been carried over from the Summer mini, so still available to purchase, I added a rhinestone onto the heart I punched out of the DSP with the Heart to Heart punch. Finished with some gorgeous Vanilla Satin Ribbon, which I am offering in 1mtr (13mtrs in total) Ribbon shares for only $17 inc postage (Australia). Email me if your interested.
The next card is also a quick one to create using the flourish heart stamp from "I Heart Hearts" stamp set & the small heart punch, which has actually been punched out of the White strip, I added red fine glitter to the Espresso piece underneath using a wide double sided tape (if you use Sticky Strip you will need to 2 rows of it), this technique gives the card some extra interest instead of just adhering the punched out hearts on top.
