I did the card at Jo Channon's the other week,we use a Stampavie stamp's and made 4 card's ,i will post the others at a later date,.
Now for this card we used a 8x8 card cut in half and folded it to make a tent shape, the purple paper on it was done by just traceing around the card but cutting it inside the pencil line ,this then gives you a small boarder, the image is stamped onto yep you got it a good old spellbinder ( what would we do without them) and coloured in with a mixture of promarkers and copic pens,the flourish around the side is a new Marianne die (just love them dont you) and a little punched out flower with a gem in the center,around the bottom right corner are some more little gems (think you can just see them).Well thats it for today girls, oh i have given the card to my neice as it is her birthday today xx

This card is a 6x6 with a white base for the main card, then a silver mirri card which has a bark texture on it.
The two scalloped layer's i cut from BASE CAMP cart, the white one is cut at 5.1/4'' and the lilac one which has a small pattern on was cut at 4.3/4'' as you can see i have just off set them from each other, then the little girl was cut at 4'', to finish off i used a few craftwork card's candie dot's.I must just add the images in this cart look wondreful when they are cut in dark colour's such as a white base and then black on the top or even brown and cream xD

This one was stamped onto rainbow card so very little colouring was needed even the back ground was rainbow card so but turning the card around you could get the shading,,now dont ask me who's stamp it is because i have forgot (silly me)
This card i really love i even think i did a good job colouring it in with the help pf my promarker's ,the stamp is a little claires and the good thing it that everything is on one stamp, so no masking and stamp lineing up..This card is going to my bother-in-law who is going to be 65 next week.Hope he will like it.
