I want to share a gorgeous card that we did at last month’s stamp club. I wanted to show the girls the new Wildflower Meadow embossing folder and the matching Wildflower Meadow stamp set. I found this lovely card on Pinterest (is there any other place to look!!) by Rachel Tessman. I pretty much cased the whole card as I really liked it.
I also love the paper doilies. Are they not the best thing since sliced bread!! I also got to use my new oval framelits.
Here’s a close up of the details.
Stamp Set: Wildflower Meadow
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive markers
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, Wildflower Meadow embossing folder, Delicate Designs embossing folder, Oval framelits, paper doilies, Scallop trim border punch, Daffodil Delight stitched grosgrain ribbon.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
This card features quite a number of my new favourites!!!
I was a little slow off the mark to embrace the paper doilies which were featured in the last seasonal catalogue. I liked them, I just kept forgetting to order them!! I finally got them and was so glad to see that they had carried over to the new catalogue.
I found this cute card on Pinterest by Becky Jensen, here.
I got to play with the new Simply Pressed Clay. It certainly doesn’t feel like clay! I made a batch of flowers one night watching the tv. So easy to do!! I just left them white as I wanted to try colouring them with markers. When colouring, make sure you touch them gently as they can mark easily.
One of the most exciting parts of this card is the washi tape!! So easy to use and it looks great. I love this stuff!!
I wanted to make a banner for the sentiment, so I trimmed the Thank you stamp in the Hello, Lovely set.
Stamp Set: Hello, Lovely
Ink: Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo
Paper: Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar
Accessories: Big Shot, Delicate Designs embossing folder, Simply Pressed Clay, Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds, Gingham Garden Designer washi tape, Tea Lace Paper Doilies.
I love the More Amore Designer Series Paper, especially the two Laser cut sheets!! So pretty!!
I found a gorgeous card on Pinterest, by Amy K, which you can see here. I loved the look of the laser cut heart with the stamped heart from the new stamp set Hearts a Flutter. I stamped it with Basic Gray and it looks so delicate. I decided to change it a little and used the Delicate designs embossing folder across the bottom.
Can you spot my Sale-a-bration freebie? Yes, it’s the cutest punch ever, the Petite Curly label punch!! Cuteness, indeed!!!
I’m very happy with how it turned out, what do you think? Please leave me a comment at the bottom.

At the recent Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt event held in Brisbane, there was a gorgeous table setting display by a fellow demonstrator, Jacqui Crouch, using the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and matching Holiday Ornaments framelits.
It was a setting to die for!! I loved the candle that she had decorated so I took a few photos and got a candle and whipped it up!!
I made 8 petals for the base and attached each petal to a chipboard circle using my trusty hot glue gun. I then cut 3″ pieces (or 3 scallops) of Crumb Cake Scalloped Tulle Ribbon and glued it between each petal and then the centre of each petal.
I then made a belly band to go around the candle using the Delicate Designs embossing folder. I sponged it with Crumb Cake and cut out the scallops by hand. I attached it to a Cherry Cobbler band and put two rows of crochet trim. I used the Snow Flurry die to create the snow flake and sponged with Crumb Cake. I then used the Boho Blossoms punch and added a large pearl in the middle. See? Easy Peasy!!
