Shout Out to SheetLoad

Whilst blog hopping the other day I came across http://sheetload.blogspot.com/. Each month they release a free ezine which you can download in pdf format. Go on, pop over there and have a look. For this month, May they are giving away Bella's and other things too.

Here are a couple of cards I made using this May issue - as I don't have any Bella's I've used a Cuddly Buddly stamp and a Magnolia tilda. I used Glossy blue cardstock for the main card and then used cream card, DCVW paper, yellow cardstock and white card onto which I stamped and then watercoloured the images. I've also left off the sentiment (from the bottom of the card) until I know what I'm using these for.

Birthday Book Envelope

This is a C6 envelope which I decorated for the Craft Swap Forum Birthday books. I used a brilliance ink pad and a brayer to cover the envelope with ink and spritzed it with some gold glimmer mist. I then used my new Laura Ashley stamp on the envelope. The insert, again I brayered and then I used a crafty individuals stamp on it and a small bloom stamp which I think is a Docraft one.

This is my 4th attempt at doing my envelope and as the deadline is Wednesday, I really need to post it.
