Memory Box Chloe Stem thank you card

I made these very simple thank you cards using the Chloe Stem die. The stem was cut for the card blank, with the resulting aperture backed with a piece of coloured card. I then stuck the stem over the aperture but slightly offset it so the colour showed through. The stem only was glued down, leaving the flower head sticking up a little for more dimension.

Male birthday card

I made this small card with a stamp from the Hero Arts Brush Strokes AC026 set, over stamped with the boat from a Hobby Art set. The sentiment is an old favourite Hero Arts one.
I got the idea from a beautiful (and much more detailed) card I saw on Pinterest.

Christmas card 2014

A made a few slightly different versions for my Christmas card 2014.

I used Distress ink for the stamping and a computer printed sentiment. The stamp is Stampendous; sorry, no details as I bought it used and the code has worn off the side of the block. The stamp was stamped once, then rotated and stamped again, creating a sort of wreath effect.

This version is on lovely pale blue card which has a bit of a shimmer. I added tiny clear gems to the middle of the large snowflakes but got a bit fed up of that as it was so fiddly to do, so I resorted to using blobs of glitter for some of them.

Another version was using plain white card, and lots of glitter.
