Gorjuss Spring

For this card I've used the Gorjuss 'Ladybird' stamp.  After stamping in Tuxedo Black, I coloured in with Promarkers and paper pieced part of the dress and the bow in her hair, adding some glitter glue to the spots.

The papers are First Edition Blank Canvas.  I cut the image using SB Floral Ovals and the bow was created using  X Cut and SB circles dies.  I finished with a large pearl and gems in the corners.

Floral Heart

This card uses another heart stamp from the Creative Expressions Singles range (I must have been in a romantic mood!!). I stamped and embossed in black before embellishing with gems and pearls.

I used a Martha Stewart PATP and also a flourish die from X Cut to which I've added a Memory Box die cut flower with some pearls in the centre. I also added another MB die in the opposite corner.
