Digi stamp: Dahlias with oval

I love this card. I have just put it in a mailbox and it is flying to Rome (Italy). It is always scary when you spend a long time creating something, then you have to drop your creations in the mailbox!!!!

I used a dig istamp I bought from Tiffany doodles. I love her digi stamps. My favourite cardstock to use with digi stamps is Gina K Pure Luxury Ivory or Papertrey Vintage Cream.
For the background and punched strip I used Gina K's cardstock (Lemon drop and Mango Madness). I love Gina K and PTI cardstock.
The stamps I used on the background are from Verve Stamps, the Polka dots are from Papertrey.

The punch is from Martha Stewarts (layered arches).

The digi stamp has been coloured with Copic markers. I heat set it first.

Stamps: Filigree Fantasy (Verve Stamps), Polka Dots (PTI).

Digi stamp: Dahlia with oval (Tiffany doodles)

Ink: Paris Lights (Palette), Tangelo (Memento)

Accessories: nestabilities, copic markers, Gina K cardstock, ribbon, Layered Arches punch (Martha Stewarts).

Baby card - yellow and blue

I have been without internet connection for many LONG days. This card is very similar to the previous card I posted. The colour combo is slighty different, I added some Mustard Seed Distress Ink.

This is a quick post, I have a lot to share and I will try to post regularly.
