Yet more cards

These 2 cards use my favourite flower from the Stampin Up Summer Silhouettes set.  I love being able to match the colours of the card and inks.  The lattice on the first card is from the same set.  The Happy Birthday is from the Stampin Up Perfectly Penned Set.  Twine or ribbon, buttons and gems finished them off.

The last card I made for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law as I have a new niece!

Thanks to Jenny for the pram and scalloped circle - it didn't really leave me much else to do.

I've just realised how long it is since I posted on here.  So here are a some cards I have done recently.

I was making a Fathers Day card which I forgot to take a picture of before sending and had a few left overs so I made a made this card.

All the supplies are from Stampin up and I love the hexagon embossing folder I used for the background.

The next to cards are very similar to each other.  They are a mixture of a couple of ideas I saw online.  The main image (from the Stampin Up Serene Silhouttes set) was inked in brown then I used a baby wipe to carefully take the ink off the birds and then coloured them in with a red pen before stamping it.  I also stamped on a scrap of paper which I roughly cut round to use as a mask and then stamped over the top with the en Francais stampin Up background stamp.  I bit of inking around the edges to finish off.  For the first card I used the fancy fan embossing folder on the background card to add some texture.  I finished them both off with twine and pearls with a greeting stamped and punched.
