Perfume and Flowers.

 Morning and it's time for the mid month inspiration post for Stamping Sensations. The challenge is ATG or like the DT you can choose  the mood board and this month we are sponsored by Lavinia Stamps.

I chose the flowers,colours and butterfly from the mood board and made a gatefold card(well tbh I found the card already made in a drawer lol) just covered it with p.paper from 13Arts and used an ALL&Create image coloured with markers and added glossy accents on the perfume bottle,the frames are Crafters Companion dies.

Masculine Card

 Morning and I have a birthday card made for our BIL.I have had the D,paper from CraftO'Clock glued onto the black cardstock then onto a 7"x5" white card for a few weeks but not happy with the effect,so trimmed it down to the D,paper,backed onto a larger piece of black cardstock then onto a larger size white card 6" x 8 and a half inches-looks a lot better!Found a little bag of the die-cut Tim Holtz figures at the bottom of a small box of die-cuts found whilst decluttering.Now I have never owned this die so someone must have sent me them in a swap years ago and no idea who or when! Anyway instead of using the black figure as a dropped shadow,the white was too stark,so used the white behind as a light effect,then I gold embossed the figure to match the paper-with an Art  script stamp from Carabelle.Then used a Tonic die for the sentiment using the same layers-happy with this one! Then son came in and said it looked more like a sympathy card!!!

 Morning and I have three posts today -the second one is for the Tag You're It/ Shaped card chosen by Francesca for Dragonfly Dreams.

No surprise I made a simple shaped card using flower paper from 13Arts and the black and white self- adhesive papers I received in a card swap.The stamped Bee is Chocolate Baroque and stamped onto a p,paper oddment.One of the corners I cut off I made into a pocket inside and added three die-cut tags(bought from a FB decluttering page) with a StampinUp birthday stamp,brad from stash.
