50's Style Part Two

Evening from a very wet and grey Cornwall. Hope it's been a better day for you wherever you are?
As I haven't been able to make any cards whilst we are away ( that will change as soon as I get home!) I thought I would post a couple of cards using the dress stamp I used recently for a 50's theme card using pro markers, except this time I have used patterned papers for the dresses
(apologies to Di if you have n't managed to get hold of the stamp yet don't mean to rub salt in the wound :) ) but it just proves how versatile some stamps can be. I think this technique is called paper piecing. I hope you like both versions of the easel card in different colours. In fact if I was to make these cards again, I would
improve the standard of the die cut flowers (what a difference a blog can make - makes you look at your card making in a totally different light Lol x )

  2. These are lovely Trudi! I loved the first one and I love these equally! I have this stamp set myself, must have a go with them, I made one for my niece with it last year using leopard print paper, which looked quite cool, but I love the way you do it in triplicate, beautiful colours xxx
