Cute Baby cards

 This is a really cute idea for a baby card. A bonnet that pivots open with the split pin holding the flower in the corner. Flower is a bit large but was what I had at hand.

These second baby cards using the SU onesie roller  stamp and each onesie cut out and mounted on foam.

Cards for men

I needed some thankyou cards for men, wanted to steer away from flowers, ribbon and frills so used the sizzix windmill die to create the first card and used my new favourite set Feeling Sentimental for the second card. This card is cased from a Nancy Hill creation seen on Pinterest. The penny farthing stamp has the honey comb embossing folder background and sponged edges in dark brown. Will use this style to make cards similar with the other two stamps in this set.

Stippled Blossoms

My daughter convinced me to get this SU 2 step stamp set. I wasn't convinced I liked it until I started stamping with it. It makes beautiful cards, this first one I got a bit carried away stamping everything but the second card inspired by a card I saw on pinterest and it was perfect to give to an elderly volunteer I know.
