Flippin Men card for my brother, not sure what the La Pashe stamp set is called now. It is a bit "cheeky" don't you think! My brother loved it. I coloured the images with Promarkers, die cut an apeture with Nestabilities large labels and the toilet "door". I mounted acetate in the apeture and cut out and fixed the images either side of it.
The hinges are die cut with a Quickutz die and fixed with brads. I added a magnetic catch to the card to keep the "door" together.
I used a digital stamp called Train Tracks from our lovely sponsor - The Stamping Boutique, coloured with Promarkers and die cut with Quickutz Special Delivery dies, the card blanks was cut using this very useful set which I found at a bargain price on Ebay recently (brand new). I also used Nestabilities to cvut the two bigger circles behind the train and the greeting.
Good one Diane, got my brain going eventually though I think a third attempt would be better, if I can bear it!

Quirky Crafts is an easy sketch by Lyn.
I love this image, it is so cute. I coloured it with Promarkers, cut it out with Nestabilities large rectangles and matted on a scalloped large rectangle. I used long rectangles to cut the patterned paper and scalloped mat, the sentiment is cut with the large rectangle set. The large orange rectangle is woodgrain textured, I think it is a bit too orange, maybe I should have tried to tone it down with some brown ink! I also think my card is too big for the rectangles however C6 was too small, so maybe I should have sized the image differently to get the proportions right.
