My Favourite Colour Combo

I know we all have our favourite colours, those old faithful ones we use time and again, well mine are Turquoise and Lilac and once again they are the colours I decided to use on this card.

I wanted it to look like a centre stepper card, but without all the fiddly measuring and folding, so with a few pieces of card and a concertina here is how it turned out.

Queen for the Day

Here's an easel card I made using Meiflower ribbon, gems, pearls and a charm.

Image - TB_207 - Coloured in Photoshop
All papers and circle - Little Sir Nitwit - Nitwit collections
Crown - Sizzix Sizzlets Tiara #2
Elegant Scroll - memory Box
Scalloped rolled flowers - Memory Box
Martha Stewart Border punch - Garden Trellis
Ribbon, pearls, gems and charm - Meiflower

I added red, clear and blue gems to the white satin ribbon (part of the Jubilee sale set) and the crowns.

I placed a stick on pearl in the centre of each flower, added a split ring to the charm and looped it over one of the swirls, I then used a small amount of tacky glue on the tip of the swirl to stick it down so that the charm wouldn't slip off.

Diamond Jubilee Stamps Freebie

You may remember that a few weeks ago I made a couple of Diamond Jubilee cards and on one I had made a stamp, well as it is only a couple of weeks until we celebrate the Jubilee I thought I would put the stamp on this blog and my blog as a freebie, and as a bonus I have also done a blue version.

Here's a reminder of the card I used it on

using ribbons and gems from Meiflower

and here are the stamps, just click on the image then right click and save as

I would love to see what you do with them, so if you use them please leave me a comment with a link to your blog and I will pop over and take a look.

First Birthday and Christening

Here are a couple of cards I made using some more of the new Clipart Fairy kits.

I hadn't realised that the printer was on the wrong settings when I printed this out and it came out a peachy pink instead of the proper pink it should have been, but I remembered that I had picked up one of Mei's new organza ribbons at Aintree along with the little organza flowers that would go perfectly with the peachy pink so decided to go ahead and use them anyway.

Image and papers - Baby Bow - Clipart Fairy
Number One - Pink striped Alpha (retired) - Clipart Fairy 
Scalloped circle dies - Go Kreate
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Organza ribbon, flowers and pearls - MeiFlower
The colours look much better 'in real life' the ribbon and flowers blend in more with the background, I just couldn't get a decent photo.

I used the same card shape for this Christening card which I made for my friends grandson.

Birthday Cocktail

Here is my latest card

Image - TEDDYBO_194 - Coloured in Photoshop
Digital Paper - Honey Morning Dew - Samantha Walker
Metal corner - Stash
Wordart - made by me (freebie on my blog)
Taupe 10mm Satin Ribbon and Buttons - Meiflower

Now to be honest I wasn't going to use any ribbon on this card, but after putting it together it looked quite bare, so I cut the lengths of ribbon, applied a small piece of double sided tape to the back and slid them under the word art panel, I then used some more tape to make little loops which I slid under the top of the panel and Hey Presto! I have ribbon on my card.
