Last 3 For June

#imbringingbirthdaysback - you've probably seen this hashtag bandied around on social media. I've still a list of birthdays to provide cards for as part of this campaign, some you have seen, and want to share three more from June which you haven't already seen.
The first is for Sam who is celebrating her birthday today - have a very happy day Sam!
I've used a die cut piece of card (from the Detailed Floral Thinlets die) as a stencil and sponged over with Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral to give an ombre effect. I've then heat embossed the image with clear powder. This can be seen more clearly on the photo below - 
The circular die cut is cut with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets and has been heat embossed with gold powder. The sentiment is from Suite Sayings.
My next card went winging it's way to the USA for Faith's birthday.
Using the same die set, sponging again but this time the whole background in Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo, no clear embossing.
The band across the middle has been stamped with the same colours as before plus Emerald Envy, using the marker pens to get the colours where I want them. The stamp set - Floral Phrases - coordinates with the dies perfectly and, when purchased as a bundle, save you 10% - a winner all round!
Brightened with a little copper embossing, sequins, ruched ribbon and a few splatters from Wink of Stella in gold.
My final card for June is to a long-standing dear friend, Therese. Again, using the same, new dies.
I cut a long piece of card, scored at each end then die cut the end pieces. Edged with ruched ribbon. The card inside is stamped with the matching stamp. 
Shown above with coordinating envelope, always nice to have something pretty drop through the letterbox, don't you think!
I hope you've been inspired to go and create a card yourself.
Thank you for stopping by, I'll be back soon with another post.
