Here is a card I made with Hero arts, color layering bird and Altenew, label love stamp sets that I recently bought from seven hills crafts. I also used altenew inks, that I love for colour layering.
Here is a card I’ve made using the new Downton Abbey papers. I have these on the free CD Rom with Crafter’s Inspiration Magazine issue 8. My Step-son is going to a 30th Birthday Party at the weekend and wanted me to make a card, so this is what I’ve made.
I printed out two backing papers and a page of sentiments. I have cut a strip of the one paper to fit down the middle of the card and then die cut some leaves and the numbers from the scraps and punched a little flower for the middle of the big flowers.
I then inked round them all with distress ink. I cut out the sentiment and die cut some big flowers from white card and inked around all of these with the same ink.
I then put it all together using a piece of lace ribbon and some grey pearls. A simple card with lovely papers.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Tip of the day 7 Background stamping.
With big background stamps don’t worry about mounting them on a block. Set them faced up, ink up and take your card to the stamp, lay on top and then use your hand to smooth over. If it doesn’t stamp well just make it a distressed back ground. Get your blending foam out and ink around the edge.
