Getting Crafty with Card Blanks

Hello Everyone
Today is the first day for a while that I haven't had samples to do,so it's kinda weird doing the housework (which I hate!) without rushing back to my craft room.
Being part of a design team has been really exciting and I'm looking forward to our next project, but a little break would be nice. I have family cards to do and my sister has put in her orders.

I thought you may like to see something new to add to your crafty stash.

A range of accessories which coordinate beautifully with the colour palettes of Beatrix Potter,
There are card blanks, ribbons, paper pads, rub ons and gems. All gorgeous!!!!!

Below are some cards I made using the blank cards.
We were asked to do something "crafty" with them to show they can be used in differnt ways.

My first one I added some extra characters with the rub ons, I then mounted the card front onto backing papers from the CD. Made flowers from the papers and used gems in the centres. The voile ribbon I pleated onto double sided tape.

The next card I really cut into to make a 3D picture which looks into the rabbits burrow. I used a Darice folder to emboss Centura Pearl card to form the card base and trimmed with this lovely brown gingham ribbon, a few gems complete the picture.

My final card today uses this beautiful scene which was just crying out for some Flowersoft.

The image of Jemima Puddle Duck with Mr Fox is also on Jemima's CD so I printed out some images and borders to make this card which I hope you like.

All of these accessories will be available during the Ideal World Pick of the Day on Tuesday.

That's all for today, Sorry if I've tempted you to spend more money but they are lovely.

Call back tomorrow for some new stamped images.

Luv Margaret.
