Oak House Studio Stamps for todays card

Die cut stamped flowers, embossing powder and textured card
Stamped the dog rose corner stamp with white embossing powder and decoupaged. Inked background through an oval aperture before adding the flowers. Add twisted ribbon for interest and gold glitter to edge the matt and layering

My second  card has a die cut circle and I decoupaged the heart and flowers with ribbon loops. I heat embossed the heart, distress inked and then over stamped with the medium Charming butterfly  with platinum EP to add more  texture and interest - again heat embossed. Used linen effect card as the base and then added purple Cosmic Pearls to finish.

Parchment card with Gerbera and spiral leaf

 Playing with parchment......with a Stamp from Designs by Ryn

          I cut my parchment with a Spellbinders die first and then I stamped the images onto a piece of card and then on the right side of the parchment outlined the flower and foliage with a white pen. Worked from the wrong side using colouring and parchment tools to create my piece. I made a card from a Tonic Layering die which has a really small "deckle". In the oval set of 14 dies alternate die are plain. I used the next size down from the white to cut the plain oval. Think it all works well together..............

A beautiful  card cut from a set of hexagonal dies.
and matt and layered with hexagonal cuts. Distress inks through
a mask and then stamped the poppy and also stamped to decoupage.

All are my favourites this time from the Workshop  .
The thistle stamp was super and the card was based on a
spritz and flick technique from Tim Holtz.  Find further details on his site
but I think it may have been posted on YouTube.
