My Mister Tom papers by Pion arrived this week, and they are just brilliant for those tricky male cards.  This one about made itself it was so simlpe to do!

I used the stunning new Joy Craft Big Fence and Background die to add an extra layer.  I did this in dark brown, and it really helps to lift the upper layers.  A clock charm, some ribbon and a key along with a stamped image and one male card done. Smile

Just for You

I just adore the new Lemoncraft Everyday Spring papers, because … pink, and pretty, and shabby ….. and PINK!!

bev-rochester-noor-lemoncraft-everyday-spring1

Uh I went a bit cray-cray with shabbying this puppy up, I even got out some diluted white paint to splatter over it once it was done.  Now that was uber brave for sure.  I also experimented with the leaves and die cut several from watercolour paper then spritzed with watered down distress ink in various greens then scrunched them up and left them to dry.  I love how they turned out.

This was such a nice and easy card that was such fun to make.

Those sweet little mushrooms are from a Magnolia kit.  I inked the edges with Victorian Velvet D/I then added some Distress Glitter

The inside finished off to match the front.  The paper is from a divine pad I picked up at the Pound Shop.  I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the craft goodies they had and well, some of it had to fall into my basket.  I thought the gingham was perfect for the image.

I die cut the window twice and glued together to make it more dimensional.  I cut out a piece pf paper with the bird and cage on it to pop behind the window.
