Polka Dot & Paisley Cards.....

These are some of the cards I have made using the Polka Dot & Paisley Stampin Up stamp set.

This one is a pocket card but with a back on it so you can stand it up and also add an insert inside. I used one whole sheet of cardstock, Sage Shadow. This was cut in half, then taped together so you can fold one half up the front and make the pocket. The front pocket is just taped down on each side so you can make the card to slid in on the front.

The patterned paper is from the Wintergreen SU paper, doublesided like the rest of the paper packs. I stamped the paisley pattern 5 times and used my white gel pen to colour the paisley part, added a pearl to the centre of the little flower.

The circles are the 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 circle punches and I used the Seeing Spots stamp set for the words and the flower in the centre, which I had cut out and a pearl was added from the Pretties Set.

I added the ribbon before I taped down the sides.

This view is the insert, which I stamped a few times with the paisley stamp, stamping once and then again without reinking.

The card inside the pocket was cut to side of the pocket, measurements depending on your side of tape you use to close the front pocket. The roundtab punch was used so you can pull the card out with ease, and the flower is from the Seeing Spots Stampset.

I used the 1/2 circle punch and the corner rounder for the corners.

This card is showing a different way of using the round tab punch. I punched the paper and cut the card I had stamped the flower on the slid it in the roundtab punch out shape, so it just holds the image. The paper is the same the wintergreen patterned paper and the Sage Shadow cardstock.

This is a better view of the round tab punch holding the flower image. I stamped the flower in sage shadow and used the other top of the flower in the set to stamp on the patterned paper and cut this out and attached it so you can just see the flower underneath.

I have more cards using this set and I will upload them later,

Thanks for looking,
