I have made the scrunchie flowers from Sizzix and Carla craft punches. A lot of credit for shaping these flowers goes to my blogland buddies as well as You Tube tutorials. Thank you all - I love the new look of my punched flowers.

These two cards are quick makes... The red flower stickers are left overs from a pack while the lady bug is a cut out from wrapping paper. The best wishes stamp is so tiny - am not too pleased with that. Used glitter glue and pop up glue to jazz it all up.

The yellow tissue paper was hand dyed by my daughter with vegetable dyes. The punches are from Carla Craft.

This was one of my first tries with distress ink. A bit too green, I'm afraid. I will get better with time!! The vintage car stamp is from Funstamps from Hobbycraft in London and so is the plastic mosaic. Yet another attempt at a card for a man!! :)
This lock and key sticker was bought from a cheap store that sells wrapping paper and stickers. It came in a set of five. I am left with only two now and when I went looking for more there were none!! :( The foil is from my kitchen and the square blue paper is a post-it. It sold off for 2 dollars in my last charity sale.
I bought these stickers from a museum shop in Prague. They look far more shimmery in real life. The pearlised green paper was created by painting ordinary paper with pearl paint that belonged to my daughter. I crushed it to give it a distressed look.
Hello, all you lovely artists in blogland. Here is a card that my daughter stamped and coloured with Marvy brush markers. I stuck it on brown card stock. The distressed effect was my first try with distress ink that was gifted to me on my birthday. The lace is not really matching but I always seem to suffer from this great urge to use it... ;) And sometimes it is misplaced!!!
