Engagement Card

I made this card using my new PTI Turning a New Leaf stamp set and die. I'm totally in love with it and can see myself using it a lot in the future. My other new set is called Congrats All Ways and it is perfect for any special occasion, be it engagement, passing an exam, a new job etc. It really is one of those essential sets. I bought it with the engagement sentiment in mind, but I can see now it has tons of uses. The orange border is cut using a Martha Stewart punch and the damask background is Hero Arts. Thanks for looking!

Another Quick Share

This is another card made using Echo Park's For the Record. Love their mix of muted and bright colours.
On another note, I got a wonderful package in the post this morning! I won a prize from Glue Arts and Nikki Sivils on Facebook, with loads of Graphic 45, Sizziz, Glue Arts and other scrapbooking goodies in it. I can't wait to get stuck in!

For the Record- Echo Park

I treated myself to some new Echo Park paper and made a few quick cards with it. the first one is inspired by a card I saw here on Wendi's blog. I loved the way she matched the colours, so I went for a similar scheme. I stamped the newsprint background using PTI Background Basics: Newsprint. The polka dot paper is from Bo Bunny Circa 1934. 

This card was made with the remnants of the first one and sticker embellishments from the paper pack. It literally took a minute to make!

Quick Card to Share

This card was made very quickly using PTI's Happy Trails, love those images! I used Smoky Shadow card as a base and layered Summer Sunrise on it. Very simple but I love it :)
