Flower Power

Some more mini cards for my Kraft envelopes today (see yesterday's post).

Can't claim the above idea as my came directly from Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine! As did the heart shaped toppers used to make it. I've used their freebie papers by Nitwit to make the following cards to complete a little set...

I haven't accidently added too many pics here...if you look closely you'll see there are variations in the flower patterns & the gemstone's positions! ;)

English Rose

I purchased these from my local stationers the other day...

I think they are 'wage envelopes'.  I thought they'd work well with Kraft card so I've been busy making some mini cards to fit them like the one above.  Here's some more...

All very quick & simple & made using some freebie papers & images from a couple of magazines!

An Apple A Day...

Another little card today...a variation on the Easter Egg Card from a few days ago (find it here).

Made using the apple digi stamp from Funky Hand's Colour Me Happy CD.  I printed it onto the back of various patterned papers from the Dreams Come True CD, cut out different sections from each of the papers & paper pieced it together.  Added a bit of Glossy Accents for shine.

Funky Spots & Stripes!

The challenge over at Get Funky! this month is all about Spots & Stripes.  Here's my card...

Ok, so this card isn't overly spotty or stripey... but they are there! ;)

 I've used the super fun wobble card template, papers, Easter Eggs Digi Stamp & (very clever) word generator from the Craft The Year Away CD.

Fancy playing along with us this month?  Check out all the details on how to join in on the Get Funky! blog.

Zingy Springy!

It's my turn to share my projects for the Get Funky! Zing Into Spring challenge!  Can't say I feel either zingy or springy but I do hope this card & tag are!

All pretty simple this month & not much explanation needed... the tag is a chipboard one from my stash & is ready to add to a pressie! You'll recognise the Rainbow Polkadot paper from some of my previous makes! The flowers were all cut from the floral paper on the Dreams Come True CD.  You can see an example of it in this picture...

All they needed then was some zingy bling & some 3d foam for dimension!
