Lets start. 

Project 1:

To make the card:
1. Use the stencil to make a background on the cardstock. This is a 6*12 cardstock folded into a 6*6 card.
2. Use Distress ink to make the background of the card. Stamp the bouquet from the stamp set and fussy cut the flower bunch. The Flowers are colored using the Zig marker pens.
3. Use the circular chipzeb and the leafy square chipzeb according to the composition you would want and finally, stamp the sentiment.

Project 2:

To make the project.
1. Take a A5 size card panel and distress using the Salty Ocean Distress ink and the Mowed Lawn distress inks to make the sky and the grass references.
2. Stamp the super girl image and water color it. Fussy cut the image.
3. Use the Fence die at one edge of the card and adhere the Super girl image. Finally add the quote and then adhere this panel onto an A5 size card base. Your card is ready.

Project 3:

To make the card:

1. Use the circle stencil to make a background design on the cardstock panel of A5 size.
2. Stamp the mini flower stamp set and colour using the Zig markers. Fussy cut the flowers.
3. Use the leafy wine square chipzeb to add a little interest to your composition and finally stamp the sentiment.
4. Adhere the panel onto an A5 size cardstock.

I also have a bonus project to share with you all, Here's a new pregnancy journal that I made using the newly release pregnancy stamp set.

I'm totally in love with this pregnancy stamp set and I have shared a few images of the inside pages of the album where I have used the superb quotations from the stamp set.
Also adorning this pretty album is my favorite, CHIPZEB!! They sure jazz up every project you use them on!

I hope you all liked the projects for today.
