First cards with Whiff of Joy Summer Kit

Hi its good to be beck, even though I am finding it hard to find my way around Vista, it is so different from XP and I am still not sure where I am on it, anyway I have managed to upload 2 cards I made whilst in the computer wasteland, not for any challenges just for fun.

By now those of you who order the fabulous Whiff of Joy Summer Kit will have received them and most probably made some fantastic cards with them, cannot wait to visit you all and check them out. I had lots of time to stamp and colour the images so here are the first 2 for you to see.

I stamped and masked this gorgeous Little Girl and stamped the orange tree behind her, she has been coloured with Copics on Su Whisper White afraid I have gone over the top with the embellies, but couldn't resist using the two Martha Stewart Butterfly Punches I received last week.

The bowl of apples is also a stamp from the Summer Collection, this is going to be so useful.

Stamps -
WOJ Elizabeth Bell Summer Collection
Papers - From Stash
Colouring Medium - Copics on SU Whisper White
Tools - MS Border punch from The Hobby House, Monarch and Classic Butterfly MS Punch,
Embellies - Flowers from Wild Orchid Craft, Pearls from The Hobby House

I used Distress inks and H20's to colour this image and again went overboard on the embellies. The Sentiment is also from Whiff of Joy

The sentiment and 2 strawberries are from the Summer Collection.

Stamps - WOJ Summer Collection
Colouring Medium - Distress Inks and H20's
Papers - Bearly Mine Extreme Designer Vol 2
Tools - Scroll Punch from The Hobby House
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts, charms from stash

I am now off to visit all you lovely bloggers who I have missed so much this last 10 days.

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx
