More Paisley Sugarplum

I'm still playin' with my new Daisy D's stash & lovin' the Paisley Sugarplum page kit! I had planned to take a break from traditional Christmas colours this year and go for something really funky but I just love these papers soooo much. I've got a bit bored the last few days with traditional card shapes, so I've been playing with a few different styles. The first is an accordian card & is really easy to make from 2 standard tall card blanks cut in half & re-assembled (or you could cut your own from cardstock - I didn't, I'm lazy! LOL). Once assembled, I've cut panels from 3 papers, inked them up & embellished with the tags, stickers & rubs that are supplied in the page kit. Plenty of ink from an almost dry ink pad - lovely, soft, sooty effects there. I've also added a few flowers from this pack.
The second card stands up as shown in the photo - but folds flat for posting. Papers, rubs & tags as for the accordian card but with one of these bargain poinsettias & a button from this pack.
Look out for news of some free online classes coming in the next day or so!!
