Using a 8" x 8" Doily from my website poppyscabin  
Well! talk about getting carried away....Yes i have definitely done that all right.
I am just loving doing my Easel board cards, and this soft Lemon is just too scrummy.
Today i have a LOTV stamp "Baby Christening"
I decided to make it for any Gender hence the Lemon theme.
I have coloured it with my usual Promarkers and Prismacolor pencils.
I stamped and embossed the sentiment with silver, coloured the Easel with distress inks and Crackle paint, added a touch of Stickles for a little bit of sparkle and a few mulberry flowers.
The cross i found in my stash (Body Art)
I cut the outer pattern from one of my 8" x 8" paper doily Squares and patched it up so it looks like a frame around the card. the leftover i am going to use as a backgound, so no waste at all.
Hope you like what you see....
This card will be available to purchase on my eBay store.

 One day i will get me a light Box so the sparkly bits show up better!!!

Elisabeth Bell "Happy Mail" Easel Board card

Hi Folks!
This another EB Easel Board card that i made using one the toppers i made earlier.
I am so enjoying playing with the new design, and with Elisabeth Bell stamps how could they not be as cute as a button.
which brings me to this one.
This stamp is called Happy Mail.
I have used a Button to hold the card onto the Easel, it slides up so that the card can be removed.
I have left the card inside blank, that way it can be used for any occasion.
I have also added a little heart charm on this one and decorated the Easel with mulberry flowers too.
Pink seems to be the order of the day today.

Elisabeth Bell Easel board card

Good morning everyone!
Today i would like to share a new creation of mine.
Its an Elisabeth Bell Shabby chic Easel board card.
Elisabeth has been kind enough to give me her blessing and made some very complimentary comments about my creation.
I have used Elizabeth's Sublime stamp and coloured her with Promarkers and Prismacolor pencils, my favourite combination.
I used a die cut Easel and coloured it with distress inks, crackle paint and added a touch of iridescent medium.
I did the same with the layered backing.
The card is removable so the Easel can be used for other things.
Wouldn't this make a lovely gift card for any occasion??

 I also added some Iridescent medium to the flowers and put pearls on the Butterfly.
Sorry the light is dreadful this morning so the photo's are a bit poo!, a gloomy day in store i think.
This card will be listed for sale later on my eBay store
