Another pretty card from Janet this week, featuring the same sheet of Bo Bunny paper used in the card we showed the week before last.  She has cut out the "Count Your Blessings" panel, mounted it onto stiff cardstock and then secured it onto one of Regal's limited edition Pacific Blue single fold cards. Janet has used  foam squares to add dimension.

 Butterflies in two sizes have been cut from Botany paper and layered.  Baker's twine embellishes the mounted panel. The doiley has been lightly inked, and  three pre-cut paper flowers with added rhinestones complete the picture.

 Once again, there are lots of ideas here that might be useful when undertaking your own card making projects.

Tania has made an elegant card with just a few features that can easily be achieved in a tight time frame.  The trees are a Rubbadubbadoo stamp, the greeting is a peel of sticker.  The corners and borders have been cut from layers of card and edged in black ink.  A button with a string tie completes the project!

Janet made this lovely layered card using a variety of products and techniques.  The base is a square Botany card, and the background paper comes from the Bo Bunny range.  The flowers are from Kaiser.  Note how Janet has coiled the stems of the little roses for added effect.  The butterfly motif has been fussy cut from the same sheet of paper as the background, and the peel off sticker has been coloured with an alcohol-based marker to tone in with the rest of the card.  The blue flowers are part of a ScrapFX chipboard shape (which originally included a butterfly and larger swirl), which has been painted.  Further highlighting has been added with glitter glue.  Hopefully there is a lot of inspiration here!!!!

These lovely notebooks were made by Lynne Armstrong in her notebook and card class.  The covers and pads are available from Regal - they aren't in the catalogue but you can contact them for details, if interested.  Lynne used Graphic 45 paper to decorate the covers and made the flowers.  Offset layers of flowers were stacked, a sunburst punnch was used to make the stamens and the whole stack was secured with a split pin, before sptritzing with water and scrunching to shape.  Lynne used Distress inks to colour the edges.  When the flower is dampened the clours "bleed", introducing the lovely shading to the pale cream (Milli Vanilla) petals.
