Kandy's choice this week of theme this week, she decided on stamping.

Kandis' card

I started with a base white A5 card.  Matted from light blue card and then some patterned paper from my craft stash.  My image is a digi stamp from Saturated Canary called 'Boobilove' and she is adorable and most suitable for teenagers me thinks.  She was printed out onto watercolour card and then water coloured using whisper pens.
I then used a spellbinders 5x7 basics A & B dies to die cut her and also a blue mat.  Plus I die cut another blue mat and embossed it with craftstoo embossing folder.
As for my embellishments, the flowers were made using Marianne dies, as you can see I die cut a pink one and a white one and matted them. The rosette was made using sizzix paper rosette decorative strip.  All finished off with a little sentiment and some card candi.

Sheila's card

My base card was 8x8, I used a spotted embossing folder to make my first layer which I inked the edges before placing it onto my card. My second layer was a die shape which I used to cut out a piece of decorative paper, I also inked the edges before layering. I then made a third layer from another die and inked the edges. I stamped my image and coloured with spectrum noir pens and placed this onto my third layer before putting onto my card. I finished with ribbon gems and a sentiment.

Chris's card

What better for spring than this great set of stamps from Lin Brown in Paper Artsy's Eclectica range.

I've used just the stem and one of the flower heads stamped, cut out and mounted on a rectangle three times. The backing paper was made with paper strips.
Have a great week everyone.
Kathy's card

Base card is cream, A5 Landscape, the first matt is dark green, then l stamped the image and coloured with both my Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs. The "window" was from a tri-fold card out of my stash, trimmed to size for the card, putting peel-offs for the faux window look, placed this over the stamped image, then topped with another shade of green. Embellishiments are the stamped arch, with tiny flowers and leaves (a Pinflair punch), and New Home tag, also peel-offs for the corners and borders.
