Two Cards Made with Free Papers

Here are two cards made with the free papers from this month's Papercraft Inspirations magazine, on sale here in the UK on the 3rd August, one month later in the USA. I downloaded the papers from the website, I like doing this because you can print the papers out onto substantial weight cardstock, have a browse around, there are some beautiful designs up for grabs there, I particularly love the safari papers

I freehand cut a very random flower, then some circles which I scrunched up and snipped.....
I printed the sentiment circle out three times, cut out the white inner circle and stuck it on with pop dots to the red scallop, then cut out the ladybird and popped that up too, ladybird is covered with glossy accents

Love this bee paper, all papers and sentiment downloaded as before. The stem of the flower is a border that I pleated before attaching to the card. I cut a scallop circle with a Go-Kreate scallop die and inked the edges with a brown cats eye chalk ink. The border was done with Martha Stewart embossed zigzag punch


The bee is a Go-create die, isn't he cute? I gave him some rosy cheeks with chalk



the sentiment was one of many on the download, I did 'what's the' on the computer. All the papers will be in the magazine, or pop over to the website and take a look
