Playful Petals..............

The colours that go with the New Tea Party Papers really make me feel like Spring is in the air! Cor! Have I used some So Saffron this month! The Stamp set is Playful Petals from the New Mini Catalogue. The cardstock used was Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Almost Amethyst and Whisper White.
This is a Mothers Day Card (Close your eyes MUM!) Hee! I coloured all the images with the SU Markers. I am going to experiment with the Blenders Pen, but I have always made a mess of colouring using them. Jo gave us some tips last Thursday, so Thanks Jo. Two So Saffron brads were added to the centre layers, after I cut a half circle out for them to sit in. One flower is flat and the other one is popped up with 3D foam pads.
Happy Birthday Mary! I hope your card wasn't too squashed through your letterbox!! For this card the flower was stamped in Black Stazon 3 times and cut out, then layered up with foam pads. Stem Sayings stamp set worked for me on this card, for the sentiment. Tea Party papers were used on all the cards.
This is a smaller square card with part of the front cut away. The paper was added on the inside of the card. I coloured the flower in and added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and some White Gel Pen spots in the centre. The butterfly was made using two of the flower head added together. The sentiment is Stem Sayings again. The embossing was Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder.

Have a look at the Glitterpot Shop, they have some new Big Shot Embossing Folders which are very similiar to the Cuttlebug ones!!!
This is a Gable Box. I found the instructions for it over at Splitcoaststampers. Do you know its perfect for the Easter Eggs that don't come in a box.

Anyway Must run as my ironing is there again - Where is my Ironing Angel? I need a magic wand.....Hee!

Thanks for looking,
