Something a bit different....

I decided to have a go at using a different style of Cardmaking for this card and didn't use ANY rubber stamps! I do not do that very often. Even when I am using Decoupage, the odd stamp sneaks in somewhere.
I made this card after reading the latest issue of Cards magazine and used Inspire me papers.

I folded the base card from an A4 sheet of Kraft card and layered up 2 sheets of Inspire me papers cut into squares. I cut and embossed a pink paper and layered it onto a Vellum Nestabilities scalloped circle. I stapled ribbon onto the card and added the sentiment with a variety of K+Co, Papermania and Sizzix letters.
I finished the card with some Papermania paper flowers, pearls and gems.
It was nice to try something a bit different but I still love my stamps! I had a lucky find on Ebay last night so am looking forward to those arriving so I can play with them. I also received a lovely Sizzix flower layers die today which I am hoping to transform into some felt corsages with the help of a needle, some embroidery threads and a few vintage buttons. Plenty of new toys to play with! Should keep me out of mischief this weekend!

Hope you are having a good Friday.
