Flowers & Easel Cards


Good afternoon, it's a really wet, blustery day here today, but look what just came to the door.  I was so chuffed to receive these wonderful flowers from special friends of mine, aren't they just gorgeous!

I have been making some cards using some wonderful Easel card packs, they are available on the Little Claire via their website here . They come in Scallop Circle, Plain Circle & Elegant Square shapes and are in packs of 10 for only £2.50 - what a bargain!

My first image used is 'Cutie Patootie' - 'Chimney Sweet Bert'.  I used the Elegant Square Easel.  I have also used 'Georgina's Buttons & Stitches' stamps and a 'Sunshine Sentiment'.  The papers are My Mind's Eye and the linen twine is from Stamping Up.



I have used the 'Swirly Whirly - Tortoise' stamp on the circle easel card. Sentiment as before, Memory Box border die, Paper shaper flower punch & Sizzix leaf die.  Papers are from Cosmo Cricket, they are so lush!



Here is the gorgeous 'Henny Penny' image using the scalloped edge easel card and a 'Sunshine Sentiment'.  Have used some papers from a new paper pack (also available from Little Claire) called 'Tea Party'), together with some twine.  Sentiment & flower punch as before.



Don't forget to pick up your copy of 'Quick Cards' this month, George Clooney look-a-likey 'Steve' has his own column starting this next edition.  Lots of crafty information, a card example and instructions and of course, Mr Stuart's charming wit! You cannot miss it lol!

Better go brave the rain and get to the shops for something for tea. Have a lovely afternoon, keep warm & dry!
