Dressform fun..


Hope you all had a great weekend.

Hubby is home and we had a great weekend.

I decided to have a play with dressform that has been sitting on my desk and made these cards last week.

The main photo is for my new friend Layla it's her birthday today. I finally found a use for the random heart peel-offs that come with the Happy Birthday peel-offs, I never know what to do with these! The heart scallop border was made using the new American Crafts Knockouts punch that was also on my desk last WOYWW. The pretty paper butterflies are from Michael's and are part of their 2 for $3 range.

The next card is for a friend that sent me my fave Salad Cream from the UK.

Dressform Thank You
Because the dressform is so detailed I wanted to use elements that complimented it and didn't make the card too fussy. I also liked the idea of using Butterflies with the dressform and it seems to have worked well.

I don't usually stamp directly onto a card blank, but I thought the white card would be a great canvas for the stamp and it was nice to try something different.

I'll be playing with the dressform more, so watch this space..



  1. what really pretty cards the dress form stamp with the little bird on it is so sweet.
    Love these

    1. Hi Ria, hope you are feeling a bit better. Thanks! the dressform stamp is Kaisercraft. Cx

  2. You are brave stamping on the card directly! I love the overlay on the headline card. And did you actually use the little hearts from the Happy Birthday peel-off? Well done finding a home for that!

    1. I know super brave :) And yes I did use the hearts from the peel-offs, most overjoyed by that.
