Forgive Me.......

for I have sinned!

I've cut up my gorgeous Daisybuckets papers. Not just once......but 3 times! Oh what will I do.It's a terrible crime......lol

Anyway,I had these 3 cards to make for this week but couldn't post them earlier as they might have been seen.
The first was for a lovely lady on Docrafts called Hazel whose birthday it was.I used Daisybuckets Sweet Marabella Bianca papers.Partygirlabella Stamp coloured with Prismacolor pencils.Some flowers with sugar coated Papermania brads in the centre,Papermania gems and some ribbon.

The second card was for Louis nursery teacher whose birthday it was.Again I've used Daisybuckets Whimsical Ladies Royal Court papers and also Partygirlabella coloured with my Prismas. Stamped sentiment from Studio G. Some purple ribbon,Papermania gems and a Flora doodle flower with Papermania brad in the centre.

Finally the last card is for Father's Day. Again it's Daisybuckets Under The Boardwalk On The Clock papers. The teddy bear was made from Sculpey clay in a mould and decorated with chalks.The nose and eyes are coloured with a black Sakura glaze pen. He's mounted onto cream card cut with my Nestabilities and then onto my lovely new Core'dination cardstock also cut with my scallop nestabilities.This card has a contrasting coloured core and is great for distressing as the inner core colour shows through.I've used my Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder on a strip of the Core'dinations card and rubbed it with sandpaper,I also used the same technique on the Dad letter which were cut from a Sizzix Alphabet. The brads in the corners were from a previous Costco scrapbook kit and the little gem hearts are Papermania. This is Louis card for his daddy.

Happy Father's Day to all fathers today whether here or who are in our thoughts.

oh Cass you've created three beauties. It was well worth using those papers, but I'm with you as I spend more time looking at my papers rather than using them...lol!! Love the effect of the distressed stripes with that new 'core' CS, I've had my eye on those, think I feel another spending spree coming on..hehehe!!! xx vicki xx
