I'm on a Roll......Part 2!

Here are a few more of the cards that I've made this week. These ones are a more for the ladies! I was inspired to make this card by a card I saw on Erica's Blog. If you haven't visited her blog before, go and take a look she has some beautiful cards and altered items and every time I visit I come away inspired!

I coloured in the paddling Tilda image before I knew what I was going to do with it and luckily the colours just happened to tie in with a new K&Co set of papers I'd just bought! I really liked this card until I went and stamped the words onto the blue circle, but its done now and I cant see how I can rescue this one! I'll learn for the next time and maybe just emboss the circle instead!

This has got to be one of my favourites of the week. I've used yet another one of my new Tilda stamps which I've masked and stamped her onto the chair! The first time I've ever tried this technique. I did have to try a few times before I got her in the right place though. Again, I coloured this image in well before I knew what I was going to do with it. I pulled out my Laura Ashley stack and voila, a paper that matched! I saw this beautiful card on Julia's blog which inspired me to make this. I love this combination of colours.

Again, I've gone with the same layout as with the paddling tilda and have used a combination of Laura Ashley papers and Core'dinations cardstock. What I was trying to do with these cards is use a selection of different papers. It always looks really good when other people do it, but when I try it I sit for ages thinking do they really work together?
I knew before I made this card, which papers I wanted to use which is very rare for me! Its from one of my K&Co stacks and I think its beautiful. I'd coloured this Tilda image in previously too when I made another card for my cousin. I was going to make copy of that card, but decided to do something different with her instead. I knew I wanted to keep the card quite simple as I was inspired to make this after visiting Debby's blog, another one of my regular sources of inspiration!
This is a card I was asked to make for a lady recently. She likes gardening so instantly I thought I'd use the Jolly Nation Gardening Lady set that I bought about a year ago and I've never used! I've used the male version quite a lot but never got round to using the lady! I really like her though. I decided to use the Laura Ashley papers again, combined with some doodlebug cardstock. I've added a bit of shine to the rosebush by embossing with my glue pen and some clear embossing powder. I think I might have a go at re-creating this card for Mothers Day which is coming up soon!
