Using a variety of key products from the range I have 3 cards to share with you today. I have used the gorgeous Grace Taylor papers for these cards.Grace Taylor papers for these cards.

I love the Fiskars continuous stamping wheel as it takes the mess and effort out of stamping and gives a great effect to your card projects. Fiskars continuous stamping wheel as it takes the mess and effort out of stamping and gives a great effect to your card projects.
