Hi all it has been a while since i last posted something on this blog so here i am back and ready to roll.
I thought i would get back into the swing first by showcasing this new range of basicgrey papers and here is the drum roll..... yes that's right me doing cards........
As i think most of you are aware i love my white space layouts and my cards are no different these three cards are so quick and easy to make..... all you need to do is layers several pieces of paper and card stock i am a big fan of paper rolling at the moment it brings so much dimension to your projects add a few hand cut embellishments and there you have it fab cards for any occasion

cards and bunting

I have seen so many cards and LOs using paper bunting that decided that I had to have a go at making some bunting myself

I cut three triangles 1 from each of the following papers and about half a dozen circles
Fancy Pants Road Show - Dainty Print
Fancy Pants Road Show - French Press
Fancy Pants Road Show - Cards

I inked all of these shapes with brown chalk ink

I then cut some triangles slightly larger than the paper triangles from kraft card and stuck the paper triangles onto the kraft triangles. I cut the circles i punched earlier in half and attached these to the kraft triangles then I punched holes in the corners of the triangles.

Next I took a birthday cake candle and tied it to a button and then using wet glue attached the button to this cute little siver thing I found in a craft shop. The glue dries clear so wont be seen once its dry!

I attached the candle embellishment to one of the paper flags.

I tied the 3 flags together with ribbon and then attached them to my backing paper. I used the reverse side of Fancy Pants Road Show - Dainty Print Paper

I cut a rectangle from Fancy Pants Road Show - Vintage Stripes paper and used the reverse to mount the above on

I added some rub-ons, lace and bling to the remaining 2 flags

I added my greeting and attached to my card base

I made another card using just 1 of the flags. I glittered a chipboard swirl and stuck the bottom of the flag.

Then i added some pins

I attached a decorative brad to the middle of a flower and stuck this in the middle of the chipboard swirl

I added a strip of bling
Then stuck the flag onto a large flower

I made my card base from kraft cardstock. I cut some strips of paper from Fancy Pants Road Show Papers

I tied some ribbon to the flag and attached the flag to the card

I added my greeting and here is my finished card

With a few bits of paper...

Sometimes things can be simple and sometimes i have to stop and remind myself of that...sometimes a card can be made with just a few sheets of paper and some stickers...this is what came to mind when i saw the new line from Basic Grey called Olivia...

So pretty and such gorgeous colours...perfect for those pretty cards...and because of how beautiful the papers where they didnt need much embellishement...i made two for you...

I love the beautiful colour of the spotted paper as the background and then i saw this heart paper

I knew that this would be a cheap way to embellish the cards...add some simple ribbon and you are done...the next one was just the same...

I used the hearts from the pattern paper...with that and the pretty frame from the sticker sheet round the outside a very quick but pretty effective card....I will be back later with some more to show you...
