Stamped cards

Couldn't get any inspiration to make a LO last night, so i had a play with my new Unity stamps instead. I seemed to be enjoying myself so much that Hannah joined in! Again i used up some stash scraps (the K&Co Peabody I used to make my stamp folder covers) and this is what i came up with.

This one used a circular background stamp that i have found so useful, the flowers are stamped twice, once after stamping off the image onto scrap first to give a pale shadow, then in full colour off to one side slightly for the foreground flowers. The message and flowers are Unity march kit of the Month stamps. An old piece of AC ribbon and it was done!

The bright card uses some DCWV gutted from a scrapbook page, Peabody papers and a Unity stamp with bits painted with watercolour ink. Flowers are from Stamping Up

I think the 'Thanks' card is my fave, again Unity march stamps, a few gems from Anitas, inking and distressing around the mat and it was done. Really quick and simple.

Finally this is Hannah's card, a bit of stamping (all unity) and layering. I added the doodles for her, but she was pleased with it.

Maybe I'll get some scrapbooking done today, i do have some photos printed, and an idea, watch this space!
