Some more from 'All in the Family'

I'm really loving this stamp set. The images are sooo cute!! So I've made a few more cards for my samples albums.

This first card is a 'pocket card'.
I've started off with a standard size card, scored 1cm from each side and then scored in the middle as well. The edges are then folded in and the whole card folded up together with double-sided tape, to form the pocket. The photo's below give you a better idea of how it all comes together.

Colours are Night of Navy, Certain Celery and Buckaroo Blue. The sentiment is from 'Lots of Thoughts' which was from Sale-a-brations!! I've cut out a half circle using a circle punch from SU, which then reveals the Whisper White note card that goes inside the pocket, ready for your message.

This could be a card for Mother's Day!! I've paper pieced her dress with the 'Loves Me' DP.
Colours are Choc Chip, Close to Cocoa and Regal Rose.

And a cute boys card - maybe twins or just buddies!! The background stamp on the Old Olive is a wheel stamp 'Spot On'.

Colours are Bordering Blue, Old Olive, Ruby Red and Night of Navy.

Well, I've managed to sell quite a few of my stamps which was just great. It makes room for new stamps!! I've ordered some goodies from the new catalogue and they are on their way; so I can't wait for the postie to bring it to my door. So look out for some more creations very soon!

All the cards are gorgeous though. The pocket card is very cute. You could even put photos in there for someone, couldn't you.

What can I say - once again some really great cards. I seriously have to get that "all in the family" stamp set. The cards you have created are beautiful especially the pocket card one. I've seen something like that before where you can put a cd/dvd inside(instead of a card). It makes a really nice pressie for someone. I'm loving the colours you use with all of your cards!

Yes Chris, I will be! I've already found the cutest little baby stamp; but I'll keep that one a surprise for a bit longer.
