So do you have a favourite? Well here's some cards to help you make up your mind!

I stamped and heat embossed the flower cluster from Funky Florals and a greeting from Happy Words. I then applied distress ink all over. I went back in with Miya oil pencils to add some shading and added some white gelly roll highlights too.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Funky Florals, Happy Words
Inks: Ranger distress, mermaid lagoon, picked raspberry, mustard seed; Versamark + Ranger black embossing powder
Colours: Miya oil pencils; Sakura gelly roll, white

For my next card I had those guys in my family in mind. I started by using the Dotty Grid stencil and three colours of distress ink

I completed my card by adding a heart from Distressed Elements and a greeting from Happy Words.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Happy Words & Distressed Elements
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, cracked pistachio, pine needles, peeled paint; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Dotty Grid 

My final card for today's showcase is for the cat lovers among you.

I adore the smug look on the cat's face and know exactly who this card will be winging its way to. I stamped, coloured and hand cut the cat's head from Cattitude and used a triple die cut window to make him pop. The hearts in the first window are from Cupcake Crazy and the greeting is from Happy Words.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Cattitude, Happy Words, Hearts from Cupcake Crazy
Inks: Memento, tusedo black
Die: CREAlies Xtra No 5
Colours: Copic, C0,C1,C5,C7, RV000, R27, R39

  1. Awesome cards! Love the pretty colors you used for the floral card! The cat card is so cute, and the sentiment set is very versatile!

  2. You've shared three lovely cards, different styles for different tastes. Geometric designs are my fave, so I'm partial to the second. Love the rich background on the first, and the sweet simplicity of the third.

  3. These are all gorgeous Jane, but my favourite has to be the cat. Awesome colouring.
    Stay safe and keep crafting.
