Card made using my new Belles n Whistles Stamps..

Hello again my lovely crafting friends!

Well yesterday was an exciting day as my lovely new crafty stash turned up just in time for me to play with it yesterday afternoon.

I absolutely love the Belles n Whistles stamps, the whole range of them are gorgeous. If you haven't tried any yet give them a go.

So here is the card I made first.....


Memento Tuxedo black ink pad/Papermania 8x8 cream card blank/
Belles n Whistles Tea Time Stamp/Letraset Flexmarkers in shades: Wild Orchid, Light Fawn, Champagne,Antique White,Buttercup,Nutmeg,Soft Mauve,Soft Aqua,Cappuccino,Glacier Blue,Honeydew,Meadow Green,Tea Rose,Watermelon,Apple,Grass/
Marianne Design Creatables Swirl Flower
Two small purple flowers/Polkadoodles Black Gingham Ruffle
Gold coloured self adhesive pearls/Polkadoodles Candy Floss Dew Drops


Round the corners of your card blank.
Cut your backing paper you have chosen from the CD to size so you have a border on the card blank. Round the corners, attach the gingham ruffle to the bottom and then stick this to the card front. Use your die-cutting machine to cut out the largest of the Labels one with decorative backing paper and the next size down using white card for the image. Also die-cut your swirl flowers using the same paper used for the larger nestie, you want two of these.
Stamp the image on your die-cut label and colour.
Add the large label with foam pads, tuck the swirls under the corners as shown.
Attach the image using foam pads onto the larger label.
Embellish with lilac flowers, dew drops and stems in two opposite corners on the labels.
Add the greeting using foam pads, making sure it tucks just under the label as shown.
Add gold pearls as shown to finish.

I hope you like this card, I loved making this.

Have fun and happy crafting,
lots of love
