A few more!

Here's another card made with the bits left over from the tutorial, the swirl image is actually the back of a bit of the wrapping paper but I liked the look of it.

My lovely friend Katy and I have been getting some things together to open an Etsy shop and I have been playing making embelishments to sell on the etsy so I used some of the bits on this card. The lace is coloured with the shimmer mists we made for the tutorial, the green leaves I designed and cut on the robot crop, The crochet flower is one I made white and sprayed to match the lace, and the little paper flower I punched out of the paper and backed with a woven flower which I made in front of the telly last night. The metal flower is one of a number of embelishments which have been bought in to sell too, so watch this space!!! Etsy should be open soon.
The sentiment is of course a stampin up one (I may never buy another and I'll tell you why later!)

These two cards are made using a new Stampendous stamp, Butterfly Beauties, which I fell in love with after seeing the fantastic work Debbie had created at The Stampman. Had to rush down there and buy the stamp!!
The ingredients for these bottom two cards are

Cardstock - Stampin up
Stamps - Kelly Panacci borders 2, Stampendous Butterfly Beauties, Stampin up sentiment
Inks - Memories Archival, Tim Holtz Distress Tattered Rose

You can see 've been buying too many stamps lately!

Have fun
x Michelle
