New Colours in Action!

I's been a while since I've blogged but what can I say...I seem to spend all my time these days planning lessons , marking books etc etc. So tonight I finally found time to make a card AND post - woohoo!
I have three cards for you, showing off the gorgeous new colours.
The first one is yet another version of Monica's design...sorry...I just really like it and I think you'll like this one too.

The colours on this photo are pretty rubbish as you'll realise when I tell you that the green is olive green, so apologies for that.
Here's the recipe:
Rich razzleberry and olive green cardstock
Olive green satin ribbon
Cottage Wall designer series paper
Punches and stamps as below

This one is based on Dawn's design here where you can see a video showing you how to make the little paper frame. The products on this one are pretty similar to the first one:
Rich razzleberry cardstock, Garden Wall DSP, old olive satin ribbon
Butterfly, Boho Blossoms, eyelet border and word window punches
silver brads.
The sentiment is from Pocket Silhouettes

And here's the third one....

Melon mambo, rich razzleberry, basic grey and whisper white cardstock
Melon mambo polka dot ribbon
Bloomin with beauty and whimsical words stamp set
Rich razzleberry, melon mambo and old olive inks

Thanks for looking, Anne

The 2 Step Bird Punch

Here's a card I made in 2 colourways cased from one of Monica's and no I haven't lost my arbles, it really has been made using the 2 step bird punch!

Obviously I used the leaf from the bird punch and the flower petals are the wing.
The card on the left is made using old olive and pink p[assion cardstock and inks. The ribbon is the new old olive satin ribbon and the paper is the new Night and Day.
The card on the right is bordering blue and Summer sun card and ink. The paper is from the Bella Bleu set.
The sentiment is from Oval All.
