1D Birthday card

A friend asked me to make a card for her daughters 14th birthday that was telling her she had a ticket to see 1D (still waiting on actual ticket) & this is what I came up with. I printed some ID pics & used a couple. Colour was chosen to suit the pics & is Poppy Parade, I made an extra insert for a Birthday message in case she wanted to to use it as an actual card as well. All happy with how it turned out.

Christmas Ornament pop out

A cute little gift to give this Christmas, perfectly packaged in the Petite Purse. I did them in 3 different stamp sets but all equally as beautiful. "Lacy & Lovely", "Delicate Doilies" & "Snowflake Soiree" (Holiday catalogue). The pic below shows what they look like open, the "Delicate Doilies" one I made last year & it just has a wooden bead but the other 2 have Vintage Faceted Buttons & the "Lacy & Lovely" one has an addition of a Designer Ribbon slide, this looks really nice IRL. They look difficult to create but are really easy & "super stinkin cute"! love this saying the US demo's use, LOL. 
Here is the video tutorial that I originally followed last year, Enjoy!

Betsy's Blossoms

Floral District DSP is so cheerful & a little retro which I really like, the colour combo's of the cards below are inspired by those in the DSP. They are quick & easy cards to make with a few different techniques. The White KIS no layer card has been wheeled with "Betsy's Blooms" wheel & the greeting is from "Curly Cute" stamp set embellished with the largest Bloom stamp that has been punched with the 2 3/8" scallop Circle punch & punched again by inserting it back into the punch (attach a strip to the back to use as a handle) to create a sunflower. I inked up the bird in baja Breeze & used a sponge Dauber with Midnight muse on the wings to make these pop. "Itty Bitty Banners" stamp set & Framelits were used on the other 2 cards, the Rich Razzleberry one also has the hearts Adorning Accents Folder embossed along the bottom & paper pierced around the top of the 2 1/2" circle & I used the Little leaves Sizzlets for the branches & Itty Bitty punch pack for the flowers with pearls in the centres. The pouch is a piece of 8" squared DSP  scored on the Diagonal plate, there are a few tutorials on you tube & in different sizes if you want to make one of these, they are super easy & no adhesive.
