Another 4 x 4 card

made this evening, I’m trying to do a selection of them to go in a giftbox for a friend.
It’s just made using my Teddybella Stamp, Latte Cardstock some Prima Aylssa daisies and….yes, COPICS. Trimmed in the usual way with my flutted blade.
I had a small piece of green pearl paper left over from making an envelope with my lovely Crafter Companion Enveloper, so I added it down the side. Tiny stamp is from Paper Salon, corner is from HA Quatro set stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Purple.
I am really tired tonight, so sorry about the lack of much of a description.

More retail therapy for me

I ordered yesterday some Aileen’s Tack it Over and Over for my Stamping Bellas, and the latest Stamp It mag.

Then tonight, I’ve made a wise decision to get the Enveloper and some of Crafters Companion Pearl paper for it.

I have been humming, and haaing over getting it, but now I really am pleased that I’ve made the investment. It will mean that I only have to buy 6×6 or bigger envies in future. At the moment, I have loads of smaller sized cards that need to have envelopes, so I can’t wait to get it.

Not a COPIC insight (Bitten by the Bug Challenge)

I probably need to photograph this card, as a flat scan isn’t doing it justice. Still for now, it will have to do.


Using Scor-it I created a 6×6 card blank, and cut the front at a diagonal.

Next cut the “kiss kiss hug hug” image using Base Camp Cartridge with Dave (my Cricut), and added to the card.

Placed Angel Kisses down the side and stamped one of the corner images on bottom left hand side.

Cut down the blue floral paper with the Purple Cow cutter, stamped the same corner stamp on each corner, then added an Angel Kisses to the top right hand side. Also flutted the side and top of the card.

Pink Pearlidoodles were added to all of the flower centres.

For the inside I fluted a piece of the blue floral paper
