Although I love to colour in images to use on my cards, there are also times when I need a card in a hurry, and ready printed toppers are a very useful item to have to hand as you can put a card together in a very short time if you don't need to colour an image first.

I have had the chance to play with some gorgeous Hobby House toppers from Crafty Devils recently and will be showing you the cards I've made over the next couple of weeks, (you may have seen the first couple on Sundays post), well today I have another two to show you, once again one uses  a Hobby House topper and the other a Papermania Heartwarmers topper. 

Everything used is available from Crafty Devils papercraft.

Topper - Papermania Heartwarmers - Male Relations
Paper - Wild Rose Studios Gorgeous Ginghams
X-Cut nesting dies - Star
Buttons - Rainbow Mix

This card was made with a piece of Kraft card that I had die cut a circle out of for another card. I decided to make a tent card and dangle the topper in the aperture. The "lace" around the aperture was made by punching strips of pearl paper, joining them together until they were long enough to go around my aperture, scoring between the scallops, then adding wet glue around the opening and manipulating the paper into place using the scored lines to help.

Hobby House Topper - Cupcake Girls
Papers - Wild Rose Studio Annabelle's Meadow and Gorgeous Ginghams
Tonic geared punch - Dotty border
Buttons - Papermania capsule collection mini polka dots - Parkstone Pink
Wide and narrow white satin ribbons.

Thanks for dropping in,
Colette xx
