Bird, Flowers & Butterflies

First I applied some patterned paper on the card and cut out a circle with a punch from Fiskars (it has magnets so you can choose where you want your circle on the paper!). Then I stamped the flowers, butterflies and bird and coloured them with Distress ink and water. To finish I used my corner chomper, added some red stripes and glossy accents (diamond Sparkles).
The second picture is one of the envelope. I punched out a piece of the paper I used on the card above and used my circle punch again. I put the circle in 3D.

Four little ducks went out to play...

This is one of my first stamps I bought (Magenta). I stamped it twice so I could put the ducks and the head of the cow in 3D. They are coloured with Distress ink and water. The clouds are cut out with scissors, stamped with VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I made them blue with distress ink. I have also put some glossy accents on the fence, but you can't see it on the picture.

From -Christmas- to -Thank You- card

The stamp I used is from the Penny Black Christmas collection 2011. But I used it for a 'thank you -card'. The background is made with Distress ink (Broken China and Shabby Shutters). For the angles I used a corner chomper.

Publicity Paper

The background is made out of a publicity that I found in my mailbox, so it's an easy card to make.
I like the colours of the paper..and it's a bit shiny. For the stamp I used VersaMark and white embossing powder.

Butterflies in the Sky

It took me a long time to make this card but I like the result.
First of all you have to create a window. (When it was finished I made a template so I could use that the next time.) Next the paper is stamped with a Hero Arts stamp (Designer Woodgrain Wood Mounted Stamp). The little stars on the background  are made with a punch. (I don't have the Silhouette Craft Cutter, you can see it in the link, but this is also an easy way.)
The butterflies are stamped twice, one time on normal paper and coloured with distress ink, the second time on acetate with white Staz-on.

Shiny Silver Dragonflies

I found these black paper cards in my drawer (I have them already a looong time!).
Next I stamped some dragonflies with VersaMark ink and used my Perfect Pearls.
It has been quite some time that I'm following Kristina Werner (http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/) and she uses a lot of these white stripes on her cards and when you start with it, you just can't stop ;) I really love her cards and ideas!

Symmetric Swans

Idea from Jess Larsen ('Reverse Stamping'): 
I think it's a wonderful idea, and it worked out great !
The swans are coloured with distress ink.
