Flake out !


As I hinted earlier today is time for a couple more new releases over at the Jellypark store.

I have chosen to showcase this gorgeous skating boy stamp {this set aso includes the little tag too} - and let me tell you I LOVE HIM !

I have 2 sons and it can be really hard to cute images for their cards - there is soooo much more choice for the girlies in our lives ! But Claire, the genius behind Jellypark, has changed all this for me she has a lovely range of stamps for boys and they are sooo FUN ! Check out all her digi stamps and more at the store here.

So I coloured this little cutie with my promarkers and added some sparkle to his clothes with my spica glitter pens. I also added a couple of skate lines and edged my middle die cut layer with some stickles !

All the DP's {except my paper pleated border which is Creative cottage and is discountinued} are from the gorgeous merry & bright collection by creativity by Crystal @ Jessica Sprague.com.
All the layers are distressed with brown ink and the 2 rectangle panels are hand stitched too. This was my 1st try at paper pleating and refered to the fab tutorial over at splitcoast stampers so if you fancy a go and want to see how it's done you can check it out here.

I also added a stacked snowflake made with my Marianne creatables dies, some DP & glitter card and a button tied with some button twine.

I hope you liked my card today - I had so much fun making it.

To see the rest of the DT showcasing the new digi stamps just hop over to the Jellypark friends blog and if you want to see this and loads more yummy digi's you can check out the jellypark shop.
