Summer Fairy & Wee love you bunches

In the latest Australian Simply Cards magazine there was a very cute set of cling stamps 
as a free gift
 I have made 5 cards for little girls with them, trying different shaped cards and an idea I had seen using lace instead of ribbon for a bow, and one where the ribbon is ruched. The first three are with the Wee Love you bunches stamp.


This one I have cut out the shape of the card with the Silhouette Cameo with a nesting file that is available at Silhouette studio.  I have used a white and blue punched butterfly, a fabric flower and a brad in the centre and the lace in a bow with a pearl.


This one again is made with another nesting file from Silhouette Studio, and I have used a designer paper for the background.  The tag for the sentiment is also a cutting file.  Another couple of butterflies with the two tones of card to complete it.  


This one I have used a set of papers called Pretty please Spring papers which was also a free gift with a cardmaking magazine.  There is two different papers in strips at the back and a contrasting one I have used as a panel across the bottom.  Again I have used a couple of fabric flowers with a pearl brad in the middle, and some lace to trim the bottom border.  I have used a doily which is a cut file and the sentiment is one of the stamps from the stamp set.   


These two are with the other stamp called Summer Fairy
This Mauve one is made with three different mauve floral papers, I have used mauve and black card for the mountings, I have also used the black with the cuttlebug corner die.  Finally a strip of lace and the sentiment stamp from the stamp to finish it off.


The final one is my favourite, I have used gingham paper for the background, and another pink patterned paper on top of that, I have used a silhouette studio cutting file for the lacy border.  The flowers are the rolled royal rose die by die-namics, and the flourish die is fanciful flourish by Cheery Lynn.  Finally I have ruched the ribbon and popped a pearl on the centre of the bow.
