    Thank you :-) On three of them, I stamped and embossed a white image, then shmooshed Distress inks over the top. The ink wipes straight off the embossing leaving the white showing through. I flicked some water over the ink and then blotted the drops with kitchen towel. Then I over-stamped with various images, the flowers, script etc. The fourth card is the same except it isn't embossed first, just backgrounded in the same way and over-stamped. The resulting topper needs to dry completely before attaching to a card blank

    I saw you I cautiously beavering away on with your stamps... What a result. They are truly beautiful.
    I didn't know about this thread. When I get around to making some cards I'll share them on here too.
    Here is a card I made a few weeks back that didn't fit a theme at the time so I'll show you now.. I made it for my Aunts 90th birthday

    What a lovely card Elaine ... It looks like a gatefold, with the two front 'flaps' folded back again diagonally? I have become quite interested in differently shaped cards :-)
    I have more stamped toppers, done at the retreat, to finish off into cards, so watch this space

    Two mandala cards, details on blog here, they started out with ordinary card blanks but evolved into something quite different

    These are both lovely Wendy and I checked your blog to see what dies they are. I love the richness of the first one and I can see another set of dies I might just have to buy.

    I thought I'd pop this card on here as it doesn't fit with the challenge prompts.

    Love, love that card Susie. The die is beautiful.
    It's so delicate and the card is a lovely colour.

    Thanks ladies, I found that paper on a cd rom with backing papers on it, I've never even used them before but will be now.

    Two shaped cards today DH asked for an engagement card - guess what was the one thing I didn't have in my box!!! The second one is my first experiment with a Wink of Stella brush pen, though it doesn't actually come out very well in the photo.

    Hello Ladies, I have just found this Thread, Wow Ladies all your cards are amazing and those dies are lovely, I actually went and got some of my dies out and had a play last night, I need to practise how to use them properly but I have a few more ideas now, it's great to see how other people use them, thanks for the inspiration.
