With vacations and company for the best part of the month May has been dismal for both creating and posting. To finish out the month I want to share some more cards I made using the angel stamps. I printed lots of copies so that I could practice the coloring. Here are 3 that made the cut to become cards.

Angel # 3

Here is the third angel I promised. This one is called Twilight and you can find her HERE

I think this one would make a lovely Christmas card which I might do when I feel like getting out holiday paper and stamps again! When you read this I will be in New Orleans exploring the French Quarter listening to great music and eating great food! I will be back home again tomorrow unfortunately as this is just a quick weekend trip.

Angel #2

I have finished the cards for Dutch Paper Crafts but I can't show them to you yet but I do have another angel card to show you.

This angel is Dusk and you can find the digi HERE at Crafts And Me. I colored her with pencils and OMS. She has glitter on her wings but it doesn't show up in the picture. I used a punch around the page and a butterfly punch from Martha Stewart. Spellbinders Oval and scalloped oval dies and Creatables Rose and leaf dies. I will have the third angel in the series to show you tomorrow.

Edited to add the MS punch I used is Punch Around the Page Vintage Floral.

Flower Doily

Another card made with a Creatables die. This time I used the Flower Doily LR0129. This set has the doily and a flower the same as the one yesterday only smaller.

The border punch is from Martha Stewart. After cutting and embossing the doily using my Cuttlebug I mounted it on colored card stock and cut around the border with scissors.

Designer Doily

 Marianne Designs has some great dies and I just love using them to create cards as they cut and emboss at the same time. However the downside for me is that you have to use the whole  think and can't use just a part of the design like you can with the stencils. This card uses Creatables Designer Doily set LR0130. There are 2 dies in the set, the doily and the flower. The swirl is from the Frame and Swirls set LR0116.

I know I have been MIA again! For the first wee in this month I was on vacation at the Grand Canyon. Magnificent. I even got up before dawn one day to see the sunrise over the Canyon!
Before I left I was asked by Darlene of Dutch Paper Crafts to be a designer for her blog and of course I said yes! She sells a lot of the dies that I use on my cards at great prices and also her shipping is actual cost so you get a great deal. I have cards that I am unable to show you just yet but I will be sharing later.

For this card I used the Hearfelt Creations Dutch Iris set.You can get it HERE. The sentiment is from the Forever Friends set from JustRite.
