It's going to be a long post today as I have 2 cards to show you. They have been made for our new Challenge blog at Truly, Madly, Crafty. It's our second challenge and the theme is NEW - so anything new goes - it could be a new baby, new house, new technique or stash - however you'd like to interpret it! The challenge lasts a whole month, so plenty of time to get those entries in, and the winner gets £5 to spend on anything from the Truly, Madly, Crafty shop.
For my first card I've made a new baby boy easel. The image is Bambino by Sugar Nellie coloured with Promarkers, then cut out and added to a Marianne Creatables Doily die cut. The dp is HOTP and some gingham I found in my stash. Other products used include a Martha Stewart punch, Dovecraft sheer ribbon, a corner flourish die, some monogram stamps, Stormy Sky Distress Ink, a shaped white card base by Hunkydory, and a pearl gem.

This is my second card for Challenge 2 at Truly, Madly, Crafty. I thought I would make a moving home card.
I started off by using Distress Inks on shiny white card, then stamped over it 3 times with the Home is where the Heart is rubber stamp by Stampin Bella with Stazon. I separated the 3 images, and mounted them onto black Coredinations card with a green core after I had distressed it. The sentiment came with the stamp, and I stamped the heart again onto the Coredinations and 3D'd it. The swirl was die cut with a Tim Holtz die on the same card and distressed. I added a green flower from Wild Orchid Crafts, and a bronze metal butterfly I found in my stash with a couple of gems. All on Bazzill 6 x 6" green cardstock.
