Clearly Besotted Love Quotes

I was rummaging through my stamp sets the other day, and found one that I haven't used for quite a while... Love Quotes by Clearly Besotted Stamps.
Here's a couple of cards that I've made using it...

I stamped the flowers using Memento inks, then cut them out using the matching dies.
The background was made using a wood grain stamp from Kaisercraft, and a script stamp from Imagination Crafts.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up's 'Bring on the cake' stamp set.

This simple card used papers that are all from the same pad by Lawn Fawn (Let's Polka in the Meadow), and the sentiment stamp is from an old set by All Night Media.

Thanks for looking, have a great weekend xx

And here's the card that I made for my Dad for my son to give to him last week...

I used Lawn Fawn's scalloped box card pop-up die, and embellished it with Die-namics Tool Charms dies.
The embossing folder is by Couture Creations (Heavy Duty)
I made the nuts by diecutting some small hexagons and then punching a hole in the centre of each one.

Wedding couple

Here's a quick wedding card, using Lili of the Valley's Wedding Couple stamp...

I coloured the image with Promarkers, then fussy cut it out.
The papers used are both from Lawn Fawn, but different pads; Let's Polka in the Meadow, and Pint-sized Patters (Beachside).
I've used the 'Mr & Mrs' die, which is from Sara Davies' Signature Collection, Together Forever.
The pretty wavy border is a Marianne border die (wave).
I finished the card with punched flowers (SU's boho blossoms) which have silver flat back pearls added the centre of each one.

Birthday dog

It's my friend's birthday next week, and this is the card i've made for her...

I've used one of the dogs and accessories stamps from Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs set, coloured with promarkers.
Happy is from Mama Elephant 'Celebration Balloons', and birthday is from Mama Elephant 'Photo Bomb' stamp set.
I tied some embroidery thread around the dogs tummy and glued the ends to the balloons, then used foam pads to raise the balloons and the dog.
The background was sponged with SU inks, and the shadows added with a promarker.

Stamp set: Altenew Peony Bouquet
Colouring Medium: Distress inks
Paper: The ScrapCake (sweet childhood)
