Another freezing cold day here again, a real bitter wind that cuts through you. Glad to say I'm staying in, still trying to get rid of my cough.
Decided to play with some stamps by Penny black that I bought ages ago and have never used yet. I have stamped and embossed with Cosmic shimmer embossing powder. Cut them out and layered one down the side of my card. I then used a Heartfelt creations stamp and coloured it with promarkers and added a bit of stickles glitter glue. Also a tiny bow.

For the second card I used two of the borders embossed and layered on each side. The card I layered onto I embossed with a cuttlebug folder. I then stamped with another of the set of Heartfelt stamps and used promarkers again. I then cut it out using my spellbinders, added glitter and bow.

For my 3rd card I used the bit I cut off my A4 sheet from the last card and made a little dinkie card. I used a kiesler stamp stamped the main butterfly again and coloured it with glossy accents over the top. My photo's are not good today. the cards look much better in real life. For some reason it looks like I have two different ribbons on the last. They are both the same ribbon. I 'll master a camera yet, hopefully.

Hope it warms up soon I'm sick of being frozen even with my thermals on in the house. Hope your week is going well. Hugs x ChrisB


  1. They are all lovely cards - those stamps are gorgeous and you've shown how different they can look on each design. I've got a hacking cough too but I had to go out in the cold today for some more honey and some cough mixture - haven't had any of that for at least 20 years.

  2. These are so pretty - PB stamps are favourites of mine too. I'm also fed up with being cold and that biting wind is horrible - hope spring arrives properly really soon.

  3. At least the sun is shining, roll on spring!
    Beautiful cards, a breath of spring
