Humphrey in da house!

I have my Humphrey - YAY!!!.  I've only had a little play and not actually inked up any of the stamps yet (still stroking), but the CD is to die for, the images are just breathtaking and so to the cards:

This first card was created from one of the complete easel cards, it comes on several sheets, which you print, cut out and use the embellishments to create the layout which pleases you most.  I did print out an additional sheet from my other Humphrey CD as having folded the card base, the printed side ended up underneath.  The only other thing not on the CD is the sentiment, which I stamped from one of my existing Humphrey stamp sheets, but the tag was on one of the printed sheets - this is really great if you need a quick card.

 This next card moved away slightly from just using the CD - I printed out some of the topper sheets (I printed 3 sheets and had 16 images!), the images are truly breathtaking and I almost don't know which to start with, but start I did.  The CD is arranged by month, and I'm sorry to say that I can't remember which month this one comes from, but isn't he just gorgeous, I added some glamour dust to the bubbles, but then I used existing papers from my stash and stamped Happy Birthday (using an old Humphrey stamp plate), then cut out with a nestie.  Again this is a really simple card, but hopefully one that will be really appreciated.
This last card is really dinky (under 4" square) and is made from one of the complete card sheets, these are fab, and would make a great card set to give to someone.  It came with 5 layers of decoupage, but I only used 3 as I thought on a small card all 5 may look wrong.  The sheet came with some additional tags, which I may use on the inside, but not sure yet.  I will make an envelope for this card on my Ultimate Pro.

Well, that's it for the moment - I've slowed down a bit with the card making over the last few days, but I really shouldn't as I've still go the Fair in the Square to prepare for - it will be interesting to see which cards are preferred (if any).

Rachel these are all gorgeous, I too have not been making any cards for the last few days but seem to have the bug again now. I have bought my cinch and am going to try and have a play with that. But looking forward to seeing you on Monday for the Fair in the Square. Alison xxx
