http://freevintagedigistamps.blogspot.co.uk/ they are free. I coloured the ladies in with promarkers mounted onto black and then some of the paper from the book. I inked and distress some more of the script papers I got as this too married in with the stamp and mounted onto some more of the graphic 45 paper. There are some lovely papers and images so you could be in for a run - I'll see how it goes.

I then cut various fancy circles alternating white pearl card and silver mirri. The flourishes are from a cheery lynne die. I did the hougie trick again on the background and added bling to the cross overs. matted onto silver mirri and then onto white pearl card

This time I have stamped in grey and used cool grey promarkers to colour in. The background is the split tree from clarity and the trees on the right are the twigs from the Joy clarity set. I used bits of stamps to create an edge to the "garden" I used a quickie glue pen to highlight where the snow would lay and added glitter. The greeting is also a clarity stamp.

I'll leave them alone for a bit now!!
Although I have downloaded some free digi stamps (LOL) they may appear at some stage.
Back to the die cutting machine for this card. The background is the double sided embossing folder from spellbinders. It is'nt big enough to do a 8 x 8 card so I did it in two pieces and hid the join with the green strip - I didn't have any ribbon the right colour so I cut a strip with a wavy edge blade on my cutter. added a bit of bling with a border cut from a memory box die in gold mirri made three little flowers from a circle die and added a couple of hat pins.

I trimmed them so that I could lay them on a 15cm x 15 cm with a little gap in between. I stamped each strip with a different stamp with black archival ink. I then highlighted various parts of the stamps with a grey pencil - I really wanted to use white but didn't have one. the lady is stamped and shaded in the same fashion and then layered up.
When I was finished I wasn't happy with the way the left hand side looked. my strips weren't as lined up as they are on the right so I cut a thin strip of the blue card and put it through a Martha Stewart punch to cover it up. - sneaky!!

I stamped a round sentiment stamp that says happy birthday. The middle of this stamp is empty so from another set of stamps I added a clock face in the middle - then I added the fingers. the background was also distressed around the edges and then mounted onto a black card.

All the butterfiles, plants and text are all the paper. I have added a die cut butterfly that I have embossed with mica embossing powder. and a sentiment stamp. 3 little gems in the top right corner. I have painted in the printed butterflies with ink and a water brush.

Lots of masking going on here background coloured with inks and houses, walls, boats etc are coloured with pro markers

you can't really see from my rotten photographic skills but I have inked around the edges with a green distress ink. I over stamped the happy birthday also in green. The car is one of Clarity's an I stamped in green, cut out with a die shaped and also distressed in green to make it all tone in.

These are some La Pashe decoupage I got once and never used I haven't built up all the layers - as then you can't stick them in the post - They will help bulk out the stock especially of mens cards on my stall.
Speaking of which I will be in Blackpool at Highfield Church, Scarsdale Avenue FY4 2NP 10 - 4 pm on Saturday. If your in the vacinity please call in and say hello!

I think that some of them will be Ok for gents cards.
Apparently I could only upload 5 pics at a time so another blog to follow!
the inserts all say Happy Birthday in English and Mandarin!
I have inked the die cut shapes and then stamped flora stamps in toning colours - simple quick cards really.

Can't believe its 8.45pm. I have just packed the car ready for tomorrow I am at Poulton le Fylde in st. Chads hall at a craft fair 10am till 4pm. If you are around please feel free to pop in and have a nosey.
Thought I would use a free stamp that I got on a magazine - it's a bit of a cute card for me - the paper was a freebie from a magazine too. I coloured him in with pro markers, stamped a sentiment and cut them out with the cuttlebug. You can't see it on the photo but there is also some more of that open weave stuff that I have coloured to match the card.

Anyway he's getting this one. I have used my serif programme to make the background and sentiment, I then added little pearls to the hearts (just to make it a pearl anniversary card you understand). I then cut a memory box heart and it embossed it with a spotty folder. - Bet it's nicer than the one I will probably get from the newsagent at the bottom of the street.LOL

The little bears were a freeebie on a mag.
I cut out a heart in copy paper to make a mask and then used antique linen distress ink to make a little heart that was subtle. I stamped the sentiment and the tried to get the bears to look like they're holding the heart. Again coloured in with pro markers and then did a wiggly line around the edge.

I started with a piece of plaint white card and coloured it faintly with a bit of blue at the top and green at the bottom with my inkylicous brushes - you can't really tell from the photo as it is very subtle. I coloured in the bus with promarkers and mounted onto dark brown card. I stamped the sentiment in brown on some craft card . I added some of that open-weave stuff but I toned it down from white with a brown distress ink. A card for the man

I'm back. I got a new swirly stamp from Barbara Grey's project club last month and have only just got around to using it.
I stamped in versamark onto black shiny card. I then used a couple of colours of perfect pearl mica powders to highlight them. the twiddly bits behind are a couple of memory box Christmas trees chopped up!
I added a bit of - I don't know what to call it as it isn't ribbon is an open weave stuff!! - I topped that with a bit of black ribbon and then mounted it all on more black & white n- et voila. It hasn't got a sentiment - it's just a card to use for whatever!! lol
