More from Elgin Demo day....get your glasses on as the next two cards are going to be BRIGHT!!


I did warn you!
Aren't these K & Co papers fab? 
The range is Berry sweet and boy they make you think SPRING, beautifully bright and colourful to take you out of the winter blues.
I have also used PI stamp set Cherry on the top, American craft cream card,  Martha Stewart deep edge punch Blossom eyelet, edger punch two dot and doily lace, then Spellbinder nestabilities beaded ovals and labels 14 plus a bit of ranger distress ink vintage photo and glossy accents.

Fancy another bright one?




Sorry about the photo for this one but guess you could say I took it at the wrong angle!  From above.
This is my attempt at a twisted easel card. 
I have used K & Co Berry sweet with orange and white American craft card.
The stamps are PI Knotty and friends and the Spellbinders are Half moon circles, labels 14 and the felt flower was cut with Big scalloped circles edged with stickles and put together with a Zva creative bling brad...the leaves I cut myself and stitched on my sewing machine along with the edges of the card.
The twisted easel card is easy to put together and there are instructions here so give it a go.

Now on to the award sent to me by the wonderful Marlena.  Many thanks. x
