This card is made with a TAP transfer that I'd not used in my Craft Stamper bag article - knew it'd come in useful!
It was already ironed onto the paper so I added some diamond stamping on the background to tie in with the birdcage. Then I used some die cuts and lots of twiddly bits. You can also see it over on the Crafty Individuals blog where their Challenge is still running.
Love making things like this where you start off with something already stamped (ie. not a blank canvas) and then can play around to your heart's content finishing it off.
Here's another card using the new Crafty Individuals stamp CI-385:
I stamped it first over some background paper that I'd made and then stamped a selection of the flowers to go in a bunch at the side to give a focal point. The tiny text is from the grasses elements set CI-207.
Over on the Craft Stamper blog, the Take it, Make it Challenge for this month is based on my tearing techniques article on page 78 of the May magazine. To go with it I've made another card using some of the same techniques:
The stamps I've used are Kaisercraft Madame Boutique.

I had this castle lady already stamped on glossy card, so thought I'd add it to a tag. I've used a mixture of Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, Broken China and a touch of Worn Lipstick markers and inkpads and added some Snowflake paint chips.
It's my last week of posts as a Guest Designer for PaperArtsy, so if you hop on over to their blog, you can see what I've been up to!
Had a great day demoing at the Craft Barn yesterday and met lots of lovely people.
I only made one wrong turn on the way there which wasn't too bad as I was using an old fashioned map not a Satnav - they always annoy me and I want to shout back at them, especially when you go wrong and they say 'just recovering' - I've usually gone about 3 miles before they've recovered sufficiently to tell me the way!!!
If you haven't yet visited the new shop at Priory Farm then it's well worth going and the Studio where the classes are going to be held is lovely.
I was demoing the new PaperArtsy Eclectica stamps by Lin Brown and Sara Naumann along with Distress Markers - here are a couple of cards that I made (gave most of the others away):
Demoing at the Craft Barn this Saturday at the new shop at Priory Farm - not been there yet so hope I find it okay! There are several of us demoing and it's all free, so come along and enjoy yourselves.
I'm working with PaperArtsy Eclectica stamps (Lin Brown and Sara Naumann), Distress Markers and inkpads and glossy card. Here's a taster:
Also got a class next Saturday 13 April using bisque to stamp on:
